    I will have a car, but I'm arriving much earlier this time, 12:30-ish. So, I'll be hanging out in a coffee shop or something for a while. Where that coffee shop will be could depend on if someone needed a ride.

    Jan 27th - 29th LAN PARTY:
    WinterWonderLAN!

    If you aren't signed up for the LAN please don't stick around for very long, you are welcome to swing by to say hi to people but thats it. Its a Paid event with limited space. You wouldn't sneak into PAX without a Pass would you? Same deal here :P
    Don't get offended if I ask you to leave. This is a PAID EVENT, not a SHOW UP AND HANG OUT PARTY.

    WHEN:
    Jan 27th @ 3:30pm - 29th... till whenever I throw your asses out so I can get sleep for work the next day :P (probably around 8pm-ish)

    4229926621_5d065ce11a.jpg


    LAN entry is $25 I require payment to signup for this. First to pay gets in.
    FOOD ON SAT EVENING AND SNACKS AND POP WILL BE PROVIDED. Food on sat will be Pizza.

    You are also REQUIRED to own battlefield 3. We will have a private server for this LAN.
    [edit]Spare accounts already called for :)[/edit]

    Reasoning for requirement to own that game:
    Spoiler:

    Will be at my place, if you don't know where I live PM me for the addy.
    Max 28 people (thats all that we can fit here for computers)
    Bring computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse, power strip, and cables (Power, video, etc).
    LAN is 21+ (If you feel you are an exception, plead your case to me via PM)
    Crash space is available (I have 8 sumos, a couch, and lots of floorspace), as are showers. (I suggest bringing a towel, I have many but not enough for everyone). New rule, if you snore loudly enough to disturb others, then sleep in the downstairs. I am sick of people complaining.
    Chairs for the LAN are provided. If you are planing on bringing your own chair please ask me first.

    I AM LIMING THIS BECAUSE PEOPLE COMPLAIN EVERY LAN THAT ITS TOO COLD WHEN ITS 70F IN THAT DAMN ROOM.
    The LAN room heats up thats for sure, but with the cooler weather in fall/winter things shouldn't be too bad. I will have the fans in place on low. If you get cold easily then bring an extra layer. Room will be kept around 65-70f. You are warned in advance so no complaining! It is your responsibility to warm yourself up if you get cold at room temp.

    Also if you must smoke please do it out by the road/storage building. If its done near the house, the smell will come in some of the many open windows and I will rage.


    ALSO I HAVE A KEGERATOR
    Beer is unknown at this point. I will see what the status is after NYE.

    Beer will be $2 a pint. Beer is priced so I break even on the keg.

    OM NOM BEER:
    4383187158_6e66174670.jpg

    Previous house party rules apply:
    (no getting sick, you want access to liquor stash you donate a bottle to the stash, no being stupid, no showing up sick)

    I will have 8 gaming machines available for use... Might have more if I can fix them before the event.
    Rules for them are:

    1) You don't have a gaming PC but want to attend the LAN
    2) If you are traveling from out of state and are unable to bring a gaming rig
    3) If you have a crappy PC that can play the games but just barley (if your machine is crappy then I want to see some system specs to judge crappiness)

    Rental fee for these is a sixer-12pack (or a single awesome bottle) of something delicious. Ask me for what will tickle my fancy if you want to use one of these.

    Attendee list:

    24/24

    1: BigRed
    2: Cakiea
    3: Snickers (Spare Computer + Spare BF3)
    4: Googalash

    24: Ducas

    n00b Seats!
    4/4
    (Spots set aside for new people who have never been to one of these LANs before, so new people can attend) If these aren't taken a week before the LAN then ill open them up to anyone. Just want to give some new people a chance to attend.
    1: DaedalusLeto
    2: beta_angel's +1
    3: GhostSquadron
    4: pNo


    Canceled List:


    Standby List:

    Frodo
    tylergoodguy
    tylergoodguy's +1


    Payment is accepted by cash or paypal. If you choose to use paypal you must pay the paypal transaction fee.
    My paypal is reasonablylucid@gmail.com

    If there are people playing MMOs or other online games by themselves I *will* be blocking the ports to said games. Its just super bad form to be doing that shit at a LAN that's only 28 people. Things like LoL and WoW will be blocked on the router until later at night or during times of smaller games going on, like L4D2, SC2, or Flatout.
    LAN Party = LOCAL area network party.

    The ultimate goal is fun for the whole LAN!

    I don't like playing bill collector harassing people to pay or else they will lose their seat. Going with this so I dont have to.

    Let me know if you didn't pay in time but want on the waiting list.

    If the n00b seats dont fill up by a week before the LAN they will be opened up for the waiting list.

    Also if you arent going to be at the LAN most of the time then please free the seat for someone who does :)

    So the site is still very rough... but we wanted to get reg up asap.

    I am doing a much larger LAN!
    We are taking over a datacenter in sodo and doing a 200 person event :D

    Cost is $45 (large buildings in downtown aren't cheap :P)
    The event will be 48h (will go all nights!)
    We will be buying pizza for everyone on sat for dinner.

    We will have a seating chart and such up later.
