Comicade Monthly event page

I'll re-post most of the info for casuals here just in case someone didn't catch it in the other thread:

Games N Go in Rosedale has fighting game casuals usually Tuesdays and Fridays starting at 4-4:30 ending at 8:30(or earlier depending), you can usually find someone up to play for them to set up SCV for you if you get there within the first hour or so.

A friend of mine and/or myself are usually there once a week(mostly Tuesdays for me, sometimes Fridays, sometimes both) playing SCV, so there's usually a setup then.

Tournament group: This is the one that is the most useful for knowing when casuals are on or not + tournament info/postings.

Comicade III will be happening this Saturday. Last month we didn't get too many people; I hope whoever isn't going to NEC can come and hang. I'll be at casuals tomorrow if anyone wants to come and get some practice in before Saturday.

Thanks for posting this. I've been lazy posting announcements.

A note is that SCV is 3 out of 5 through the whole tourney, he just doesn't post about it in the rules for some reason. Heh.

Wow - last comment was 2013 - it's 2018 now. Is anyone still playing 4 or 5. I'm ramping up for the new one and am wondering if anyone locally is still playing?
