It's time for the first SC3 event of 2015, in a brand new location! Our next Arcade Party will take place on Saturday, May 9, at 2084 Arcade, a private facility jam-packed with '80s arcade classics in Anaheim. The hours are 4 p.m. to midnight. If you attended our Santa Ana events at The Last Arcade on the Planet, you'll have an idea what to expect. The owners of 2084 are four Southern California coin-op collectors who combined their collections under one roof to recreate the games list of an early 80's arcade. Now they have nearly 100 classic machines, including a few pinballs, at a facility in Anaheim. 2084 has been hosting arcade get-togethers every few weeks for a while now, but May 9 will mark the first time SC3 will be there with our complement of home consoles, game trading and other goodies.
This is SC3's first event at 2084 so this will be a learning experience for us. 2084's a big enough place, but it's firmly packed with coin-ops. There's some space for home consoles but we might have to go a little lighter than normal. Food will not be provided at this event. Trading is essential to the spirit of SC3 so we'll find space for it, somewhere. We'll find room for the traditional GameGavel.com raffle too. All in all, this should be like a typical SC3 event but with a heavier focus on arcade gaming than usual. The owners of 2084 Arcade are friends of ours who have provided invaluable help to SC3 in the past. The SC3 organizers have attended 2084 events too and have always had a blast. The chance to throw a party together is just too good to pass up, and we can't wait! As always, watch our Future Meeting Page for additional details as they emerge.
If you want to attend, you must fill out this RSVP form. If your registration is accepted, you will be informed via email. Simple! Hope to see you May 9!
