What You Missed: SPLI First Anniversary/Pokemon Party!

August marks the first anniversary of StreetPass Long Island, and we decided to throw a huge event to celebrate!  Since Pokemon is wildly popular in our group, and the new Pokemon X&Y games are due out this October, we thought it might be fun to host a Pokemon Generation 5 Send-Off Party for our First Anniversary.  The party included a PVGC Doubles Tournament, a Cosplay Contest, a Plushie Contest, as well as Trivia and Funfest Missions!  There was pizza, cookies, cake and prizes for all who attended!

Over 30 people came to play Pokemon, get StreetPasses and enjoy the party with us!
A Gaming Lounge was set up for casual Funfest Missions.
Matt and Ana, Leaders of the Pokemon DS NYC Meet Up Group, expertly ran the Tournament, which was also broadcasted live on an HD TV during the event.
The entire Tournament was streamed live by Clash Tournaments!
The Clash Tournaments staff also provided live commentary for each match!
StreetPass Princeton came out to Long Island to enjoy the festivities! Thanks for joining us!
StreetPass Princeton also generously provided a customized cake for the party! It was delicious, and quite a big hit with the hungry Tournament participants!
Members of StreetPass NYC came to hang out as well!
StreetPass Leaders Jordan & Debbie showing off some Pikachu cosplay!
StreetPass Long Island Co-Founder Jeff provided the delicious pizza! Thanks Jeff!
Of course a little Pokemon TGC was going on at the event as well!

Some of the plushies pictured here were the big winners of the Pokemon Plushie Contest!
The Grand Prize winner of the Tournament was Rick G. (pictured here in the center, wearing a black hat) He is now a Pokemon Champion in StreetPass NYC, StreetPass Long Island and the Pokemon DS NYC Meet Up Group! Who would like to challenge Rick now??
We hope everyone enjoyed our First Anniversary Party! We had an awesome time thanks to all of the great friends who came to share this day with us! We hope to see you all at the next event!

If you weren’t able to make it to our First Anniversary Party (what a shame!) please visit Clash Tournaments on Twitch TV to watch a recording of the live stream!  We hope you enjoy it!

StreetPass Long Island at PAX!

Ever been to the PAX East Convention?  It’s held in Boston, MA every year, and it’s awesome!  SPLI got to experience the Epic Expo first hand this year, and attended PAX from 3/22 – 3/24.  StreetPass Long Island Co-Founders GluxBox and JDubz drove up to New England to enjoy the Expo, but there was a bigger reason that they were there.  That reason was that GluxBox (real name Debbie G. lol) was invited to be a Speaker at the PAX East 2013 StreetPass Panel!  Other speakers at the StreetPass Panel included StreetPass Princeton’s Nicholas and Robert Oehlberg, Isaiah “Triforce” Johnson of Empire Arcadia, and Ryan Morrison of Island Officials.

Over 100 eager StreetPassers came down to learn how to start up StreetPass groups in their home town, get some free Perler Bead prizes, and of course to add to their endless stream of Mii’s in their 3DS’ StreetPass Mii Plaza.  The panel itself was an hour long, and JDubz was kind enough to record the entire Panel on his Flipcam.  In case you don’t have time to watch the entire Panel, here are the SPLI Highlights.  (We spoke about other groups and topics too, but since this is the StreetPass Long Island website, we’ll stick with SPLI-centric clips.)
