Hi there, I'm wondering if there are shmuppers from Vancouver, BC? 8)

I'd be interested, but Vancouver is quite a drive from Alberta. It would be cool to throw around the idea of a western Canada shmupmeet for the future though.

The northwestern United States might be a better option for getting more people together, I've never known Canada to be filled with many shmupers.

Yeah, Canada doesn't have many people that's hardcore into shmups. The Southern Ontario community alone has about <20 people.
However, if you're not hosting a shmup thing anytime soon, I believe KevinDDR is hosting an arcade meet at his house over at Seattle WA in the summer and there's a thread for it here.

Well I'm not hardcore into shmup games and I just like to play sometime. I can't find anyone who have the same interest in Vancouver. I don't have any real hardware and I've never saw it so I'm using MAME and have some shmups for PC.

I'm from Seattle, but wanted to drop a note to the Vancouver people that the arcade in the Metropolis at Metrotown mall in Burnaby has a sweet Dariusburst AC cab (at least it did in late December 2015). I was there at Christmas time and was really excited to play that :)

And greetings to the fellow Pacific NW players in BC and the states.

I'm located near Vancouver, and I'd absolutely be down for a shmup meet :)

Are there any Vancouver shmuppers left?? I have a cab, some PCBs and a lot of console games. Could host a small meet with 3 ppl max (sorry, my space is tiny and shared) :)

I thought this as well, but it seems there are two. 2 in 4.2 million people is one more person than I would have expected.
