Our boy Nate will soon be leaving Washington. Come send him off properly this Saturday at my place in North Seattle. PM me if you need directions. I am not certain of a precise start time, since this all depends on how late I’m out for Friday night’s craziness. We could get shit going as an all Saturday thing, but I guarantee that doors will open at 6PM at the latest. Expect festivities to last into Sunday–as is always the case with my sessions.
Old ST and Marvel will be the main draws. I plan on having all SDTVs hooked up to DCs. But I only have 2 Jap sticks (if Pablo and Julian return my stuff), 2 American (if Kuenai brings 1 back), and 3 PSX => DC converters. I might be mean and force HDR enthusiasts to play on the projection HDTV that has no sound–serve’s them right for betraying the cause.
I still remember the first time that Josh brought Nate to Preppy’s. This fat dude parked himself on the stool and FABed people all night long on the ST cab. Upon knockdown, he would l. jab tick people into SPD’s. I thought, “That’s fucking broke and stupid.” Still, he was a sociable guy.
Four months later, at my first ST tournament, we faced off in the grand finals. Nate proceeded to crush me 4-0, using his Geif against my Claw. At this point, I’m like, “Gief is hella buff.” As I grew to understand the mechanics and match-ups for ST, slowly I realized that Geif will always have an uphill battle. Geif wasn’t buff, Nate just knew how to handle his shit!
This was one of the guys who helped form the Seattle ST community in 2007. Top cut EVO 2007 (Falling to Itazan), and highest placing Geif for the last 2 years when EVO held ST. Winner of our 1st ST ranking league back in 2007. A pillar of our community. Come see him off right.
Sorry for the late announcement. This time, the fault can squarely be placed on Pablo and Blake. Fucking minorities, holding shit up for responsible people.
