09/26/09 Meet

Neither extreme temperatures, botched cake orders, nor vicious hornet attacks could keep SC3 down during our September 26th arcade party in Claremont. But they didn't exactly make things easy. Southern California's famous Santa Ana winds were responsible for 100-degree temperatures all weekend. Beli...

Re: Could I try for the Atari 2600 Galaxian record?

I finally got my Internet connection back up so I can chime in here. I think these record attempts are great and I can't wait to see them. Just a couple of details I want to make sure are addressed: Can you guys supply your own VCRs and tapes to document the attempt? It sounds like homer can. How ab...

Re: Could I try for the Atari 2600 Galaxian record?

This could be a lot of fun. Maybe we could even involve Twin Galaxies in some way. After all, they did provide giveaway posters and hot sauces at the last event.

Cool idea.

SC3's 10th Anniversary Party - April 25, 2009

In show business, there's an old saying that a bad rehearsal leads to a great performance. This was certainly true for SC3's 10th anniversary party, held April 25, 2009, in Claremont, CA. Setup for this event was tricky. A snazzy new brickwork patio area was installed in our usual meeting place, but...

Re: 12/16/00 Meet

This was the first SC3 I ever attended (not bad, considering I had only moved to California 6 months before). I think Geoff told me about it at CGE that year. Once people started playing Combat with Joyboards, I knew I was among friends.

I am bringing my O2 with Multicart. It's got The Voice, and has been modded for composite video and to use standard (2600 or Genesis) controllers. I love the O2 but have never been a huge fan of the joysticks.

Re: 03/10/01 Meet

I miss Adam and Ward too. Ward actually managed to get me kind of interested in the Arcadia 2001 (Cat Trax was decent enough, anyway). Nobody did more for the Arcadia or VIC-20 than that guy.

Good to know that Adam's Bally Alley site is still being updated.

Re: Trading for the 4/25/09 Meet

Hey, just thought I'd mention that I've been weeding my NES collection and will be bringing something like 100 games to this meet. $$$ or trades welcome! Lots of semi-uncommon stuff. The rarest item is probably a boxed Chiller. If anybody has a spare TG16 Turbo Booster or Turbo Booster Plus, I'm loo...

Re: Console Requests

I didn't see this post right away, but Tetris Attack is very doable. I've brought it to previous meets.

I'll place it in my "to bring" pile... :D

Re: Console Requests

I know this is is going through William's head, but the O2 gets intermittent play at the meets. I'm up for an uncommon choice or two for game systems. but Rob's the odd system master,.. ( ohhh Master System! We haven't had one of those yet! ) and his moving space is tight to be polite. I suppose I ...
