For a while there, it looked like the Nov. 7, 2015 SC3 arcade party might not even happen. Half of the usual organizers were sidelined with work commitments or recovering from illness, and we weren't sure we'd be able to get it together. But we couldn't disappoint all the people who planned to attend, so we plowed ahead anyway. Things turned out all right, with over 225 games arriving at the famous Backyard in Claremont for eight hours of games, pizza, and a truly staggering amount of trading. This event was one of the most well-attended in SC3 history, with a bunch of new faces, old friends, 10-player Saturn Bomberman and one solid wall of Pac-Man! Read all about it in our Nov. 7 Event Recap.
As always, SC3 wishes to extend a hearty thank you to everybody who helped out with the setup and brought games. An extra special thanks goes out to Jason, who not only helped with the setup both days but kept several of the arcade cabs running when they seemed determined not to. Big thanks goes to all those who chipped in donations. That money goes directly to pay for electricity, food and other expenses, and without it, SC3 could not continue.
So when's the next one? We don't yet know exactly. Our normal schedule is one in the fall, one in the spring. So expect it sometime in the April-May 2016 timeframe. More exact times will be announced on the Future Meeting Page and Facebook as spring approaches. Until then, keep gaming!
