So when's the next LAN? Not just the next LAN OC LAN, just the next one in general? I think it would be fun to get something planned for this summer that we could make a trip to and have a strong presence like at stompfest at a 100+ person event.
Post up future LAN's that you've found here and we'll see if we can get a group going to represent LAN OC with our new shirts!

Million Man Lan in Ky is coming up in July. We went last year, but im not sure if we are going to go this year or not. I want to make it because it is one of only a few large lans in our area. But it could have been a little better.

If we get a large enough group I will go. I want to take up an entire table between us and LanOhio

Well, if you keep an eye on lanpartymap.com , you will see that there is a lan in Hamilton, OH in June called JUNE-PWN hosted by Ham-Lan. Here is their website for further info...

Ham-Lan.com

Looks like they have more going on than just games of the digital variety.

I love the board game idea.

On a side note, I hate websites that have music embedded

Those frustrate me too! I didn't realize that since I was looking on a computer at work that has no speakers.

Yes, I said at work, lol. :laugh:

does anyone know anything else about their lan? Their forums are very new, have they hosted a lan before? They are planning for between 60 and 100 people, but if they havn't hosted before there is a chance there may not be many at all

Depending on when in July, i'd be interested in making the trip. With the right people any journey is fun!
I can check LAN OC's site from work, but most others are blocked. LAN OC is classified as a news site instead of a gaming site per Barracuda.

Lol, I think blocking scripts blocks the music too. The site looks a bit odd, but sounds interesting. Some different games and activities, and I kinda like the idea of Serious and Lite tournaments, and foam weapon fights (needs to be bigger, more like LAIRE in that one movie, forgot the title). Sounds like they have big tables, if people are sleeping underneath them. But I would say they may have done this a little bit before. lol Or maybe they switched forums like we have, and couldn't transfer everything over, so it looks barren now.

Oh wow. That's not good. Well, I'd join a LanOC group if several people want to go to it, but it does seem like it's just something starting.

At least on Myspace you expect crap like that. When I'm going to a site for a well-organized lan, I don't.

You're fine. I say "I lol'd" all the time.

Gah, I shoulda been at the lan. =\

Anybody know any good LANs in PA? I might go to college there, maybe.

is anyone else interested in going to Million Man Lan?

Im not really up for going by myself but if we can get a group going I would be up for it. But I have to plan it out far enough ahead to make sure i have the time off and whatnot

I'm on the fence as i think i'm just getting back from New York around that time (July 9th weekend right?). But i think there is a big 350 person Lan in Detroit that same weekend if you'd rather go north, i think it's less of a drive, at least from fort wayne it is :-)
Just throwing out ideas.

Is that in TX? I'm headed there this Christmas, it's not that bad of a trip if you've got the right people in the car/van. That might be something aim for for next year. Rent a motor home and Game all the way there! then we'd have a place to sleep and plenty of room for our PC's!

So you've already got your tickets and you plan on flying to Quakecon this year? when is the event anyway? (i can't pull up the website at work)
Wish there was something that big (isn't it like 500+ people) with-in a 5 hour radius and we could all make it.
I bet your lunchbox would fit in your carry-on (although i'm not sure if it'd pass security) and if you emailed out, i'm sure someone could lend you a monitor for the event. You might be able to take your Gaming PC afterall :-)

Hope you win a car. Last year they gave away a $50,000+ Mustang Cobra!

After seeing how others treat carry-ons in the overheads, this scares me. Especially on a full plane.
