Teen Night - Gamers Unite!

ASRC hosted a Teen Night at the Casual Gamer, a local shop where customers can get together and play video games.  They offer game systems and screens to rent, including this giant projector screen which the kids loved.  We noticed several kids (and parents!) trying out "Dance-Dance Revolution" and some of the other arcade-style games and pinball machines available.  "This kind of event is great since the kids can get together without the constant pressure of face to face conversation.  They tend to bond over these games," said Doreen Lund of ASRC.  The night was a success with approximately 20 teens and pre-teens gathered for video games, pizza and cake.  One parent commented: "We had a great time at this event, and hope that ASRC will host this event again."
