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!
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!
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.)
