Damn - I just discovered this meet happened. I turned up in SF for a work trip and touched down in the plane at 5pm on the 13th, just as you guys dodged your last bullet! Typical of my luck!

Great pics IlMrm! My pics came out pretty dark, so I'll only post the one I took with flash.

Spadgy, to bad you just missed it. Let us know next time you come out to the bay area. I'm pretty much booked every weekend now till I get married in July, so next meet I could host would have to be around September.

That's an insane personal arcade. Can we get some more pics of that?

You can find more pics in the past shmupmeet threads, although my garage has constantly evolved over the years. Shmupmeet #8 has two videos which segasonicfan posted.

Ish has a hotmail account so he's not registered here (just on N-G.com). He sent me a PM to post up here:

"Hey Dave thanks again, as usual, for hosting. It's been good to see some of the regular faces there (Dirtymonk, IlMrm, BER). As usual IlMrm blows me away with his skill. 1st credit dropped into Futari, gets both extends, has all lives going into final boss, and 1ccs with ease. Damn. It was also good to meet Zakk. BER slipped quietly back into the arcade after wolfing some pizza. Smart. It was cool talking to both you and Dirtymonk.

Yes, I know I was on that Futari. You know how I am with the new games. Just got to put your quarter down, otherwise I'll just look around, and if nobody's waiting I'll keep going. :)"

Sincerely,

Mikhail

great pic, I love seeing 5 candies getting played all at once. I would have loved to make it out Dave, but schedule conflicts prevented me from doing so. Maybe next time. If I can find a new spot, I'd love to host a meet myself some time.

You got a sick set up, Dave. :shock:

I hope I can make it to one of your shmupmeets sometime. I only live about 45 min. away, in Brentwood.

I'm back up to 6 candies now (had sold one prior to the shmupmeet). :lol:

You and J-Manic will get one more opportunity as the next one may be my last...at least in my current SJ location. Shooting to move out by November, so last meet may be in August/September.

Hey Dave,

Although shmups aren't my main thing, is it cool if I come to number 10? I'm a huge Garegga fan, reason I wanted a tated cab.

Haha! Great article Albert! And glad you are putting that wooden control panel desk to good use! I swear if the people I know in the bay area that are doing this all banded together, we could open a mega-bar/arcade that would seriously rock.
