    Hey man, glad to hear, always room for more players! Recently we have been meeting Fridays at Ryan (AvericeX`s) apartment although sometimes we still meet at the UCC on Thursday, but that is pending on interest. Basically you will get more out of the facebook group, so as soon as you are added by Bishop, we can start a dialogue there to get you better informed with all the info you needs!
    "its like sharks fighting in the water, interesting to watch, add a drop of blood and you get a much more ferocious fight. Now that is 3s. Take those same sharks and put lasers on them with guided missiles, and propellers to make them fly and you have the most retarded idea ever made, that is new fighting games."

    I figured that I would just update the current SRK page so that we don't waste page space on the current Canada forum. Also because we don't really use the page other than for attracting stragglers that don't know about the Facebook page.

    Once we figure what we will be doing in the New Year, I will update the post above with all the new detail for Ryan`s apartment and what we will be doing about "Thursday" casuals.

    I'm from St. Thomas (still a high school student I reckon) and really want to get into the SF4 and UMVC3 scene here in London, since I'll be moving there in July. Is there a set age limit to get into Poachers? I'm 17 as of posting this and would really hate for something as silly as an age limit being a deterrent to meeting and playing with some of the best that London has to offer.

    Hey guys, no worries on the age limit thing. We meet every Friday at Ryan`s apartment(AvericeX). Anything else that is advertised on this page are events that you are welcome to attend.

    Basically the primary location of this scene is either at Ryan`s place or the University Community Centre at Western`s campus. Check my post at the top which has our Facebook forum where we discuss events and casuals. If you have a Facebook account, feel free to join and shoot us a introduction and feel free to come out to our Friday casuals, we are more than welcoming.

    If you don't have Facebook, I would suggest just making an account just for that group to stay in touch and active, SRK forums unfortunately are going the way of the dinosaurs as much as I would prefer to use SRK, but now we are redirecting people to the Facebook forum. If not, you can keep active on here if you like, just hope we check it more frequently.

    Here is the Facebook link anyways. Im Chris W.

    No there's no age limit on coming out to the Poacher's Arms. You just can't drink alcohol while you're there. But there's lots of food and non alcoholic drinks you can buy while you're there

    Hey there Gotham S, I don't have those converters but you can pick them up at XMonster (https://www.facebook.com/Xmonster.ca) here in town

    Ignore my message about an age limit for Poacher`s Arm, it is all ages, so you are still welcome to come out.

    Happy New Years guys, I will add more info later to this when i feel like it.

    The only reason we have an SRK is to get random London players out.

    We play formal casuals once a week on Thursdays at the UCC on campus of the University of Western Ontario. We occasionally meet up for another session throughout the week. We have players who play everything at just about every level, but I'd say UMVC3 and SF4 are our most popular games. We have old-school players who love Super Turbo, 3s and MVC2, and we have quirky-game players that play the anime games. You name it we'll play it.

    If you're interested we can organize a way to get you a ride to casuals for Thursday. We generally have enough systems for everyone, but if you can bring your own arcade stick or controller that would be perfect, though we definitely will have some for you.

    Here's our facebook page where we generally organize things. (Not every member of the scene is on SRK)
