SC3, "Southern California Classic Collectors", is your local Classic game collector's group serving the Metropolitan Los Angeles, San Diego and Inland Empire areas. We invite all those who can come to our meetings for play, trade, showing off your precious rares to an appreciative audience, or just to be amongst those who beat you to that Vectrex at one of the local Flea Markets a few months back. Whether you're looking for your first 2600, or an Intellivision Computer Module, we'd like to see you there!
This Saturday the 15th will be time for another SC3 hosted Arcade Party. See pics from the last party here.

Eurocon is a annual convention for the classic game enthusiasts who gather together for playing, selling, trading, chatting, socializing, laughing and drinking beer (or wine or...)
The conventions are small in size (about 20-30 people attend the full weekend) so you can really get to know each other.
There is a regular group who attend every year, but new faces are always welcome! So if you want to join, please do so.
....and there's no last minute bell in sight. Read on to see why this could be it for the current incarnation of the company.
