Next SC3 Meeting: November 7, 2015
The next meeting of the Southern California Classic Collectors is scheduled for November 7, 2015. The party will last from 4:00 p.m. until midnight at Steve's place in Claremont – the famous "back yard" location we've been to many times before. We hope to see you there!
As with all SC3 events, the November 7 party will feature dozens of classic coin-ops on free play, tons of home gaming consoles with a huge complement of games, videos, and '80s music. Other attractions may be announced as the event draws near; watch this space and SC3's Facebook page for details!
SC3's food of choice – pizza – will be served at this event. We will be making pizza runs at scheduled times ONLY. (The food schedule will be sent to those who RSVP.) We'll also have some snacks, cold sodas and water on hand. Typically the liquid refreshments last the night but the snacks tend to be eaten quickly, so be sure to grab something as soon as you're hungry!
Donations Are Appreciated!
We do our best to hold down costs, but please remember that our pizza and electric bills are still substantial! We greatly appreciate your donations – in fact, we need them in order to keep SC3 humming. We humbly request a donation of at least $5 per adult attendee, and we thank you in advance.
If you want to attend, you must fill out this RSVP form. If your registration is accepted, you will be informed via email. Simple! Remember, it's essential that you RSVP ahead of time – space is limited at this location and we need an accurate headcount!
Thanks as always for your support!
– The SC3 Team
Highlights from the Last SC3 Meeting
May 9, 2015 marked the first, but not the last, SC3 event held at 2084 Arcade in Anaheim. 2084 hosts smaller gatherings on a regular basis, but May 9 was the first time SC3 showed up with our bevy of home console games and videogame trade tables. The result was the largest and most attended 2084 gathering yet! About 200 gamers made the trek to Anaheim to partake of 2084's nearly 100 classic coin-ops (and three pinball tables), videogame trading, multicart-fueled home console gaming, and the ever-popular GameGavel raffle. We even had a fireworks show... well, sort of. This was a great, low-stress event where we got to welcome a lot of new faces, most of whom seemed genuinely excited and thankful that there's a group still keeping the '80s gaming vibe alive. It reminds us why we keep doing this. Read all about it in our May 9, 2015 Event Recap.
Who Is SC3, Exactly?
If you aren't familiar with SC3, we're just a friendly group of videogame enthusiasts who like nothing better than to get together to talk, trade, and play games. We've got a soft spot for games from the "classic" days of the early 1980s, but we love games of all eras, from Pong to PlayStation 4. If you love videogames, you're welcome to attend!
SC3 has made a point of keeping our meetings relaxed and informal, but the atmosphere will include some beer drinking and there may be some R-rated game content. This is an adult get-together where supervised minors will be accepted. Parents should take this into account and please let us know if you have questions.
