Hey I have a setup (Xbox, Evo monitor, games) I can lend if someone can help me out with transporting it, as it’s too much to take on public transit. I’m at 14th ave west and Granville. If anyone lives nearby and is driving down, let me know and we might be able to work something out.

Hey I’m running a little late, can you reg me for sf4?

Hey everyone, thanks for coming to Overture 15 this weekend! It was a ton of fun and once again we had more setups than available space so thanks to everyone who brought setups and games. Overture 16 will happen some time in November, and we’re working out some new things to make it even better. Also congratulations to Brandon Tin for winning the grand prize in the raffle which was an EIGHTARC FUSION SYNTHESIS!
