The next meeting of the Southern California Classic Collectors is scheduled for November 15, 2014. 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 15 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. Video game auction site will once again be on hand, conducting another raffle of gaming merchandise. Other attractions will be announced as the event draws near; watch this space and SC3's Facebook page for details!

Food Schedule

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.

RSVP Today!

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!

Highlights from the Last SC3 Meeting

April 26, 2014 marked the fourteenth arcade party SC3 has put on since 2006, and the second at The Last Arcade on the Planet – a Santa Ana facility fully stocked with over fifty classic arcade cabinets. About 175 people showed up for SC3's trademark mix of retro arcade and console gaming and trading. Overall the event went off very well, with a lot of satisfied players all around. But thanks to a bizarre mishap with an equipment rental service, it nearly didn't. Find out all about it in our April 26 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.
