Please make it a priority to attend this, especially if you live in NY! There's a lot of space (2 floors). There will be a lot of setups (aiming for 16), hopefully good attendance, a stream, OOS attendance, etc. It doesn't end too late either, so it's more efficient for people who are traveling.
Stream: Chibosempai! Chibo is the official stream partner of the Uprise/LIRR series.
