LanOC V13 Recap

It’s been a few days now and not only have I set all of the PCs around the house back up, I also took the time to do detail cleaning around my desk. Even after a few days I feel little tired, an impromptu nap that went until 3pm yesterday helped some but it’s going to be a little while before I’m back to normal. All of it means we had another successful LAN. Of course the work doesn’t stop on Sunday for me, but before I get too far into it I wanted to post up a little bit of a roundup. Read on to hear more about it.

Good Times had by all

First and foremost, the pictures from the LAN are up both here on the site as well as Facebook. You can check them out at the following links:

Up top in our menu under gallery

In the photo albums on our Facebook page

Make sure you are following us on Facebook and be sure to tag everyone you know, especially the embarrassing pictures!

Here are a couple highlights that I wanted to point out from the LAN though.

First thing first, the excitement during some of our raffles was impressive. Here is Berb caught in the act of running up to claim his prize!

We had a few extra activities for everyone to do, here was our old school tournament as well as the poker tournament. Poker even sent a few bucks back into the LAN as well! We also had the finals from the LoL tournament up on the projector as well.

I think most of you even made it by the Sapphire table and spoke with Ed as well. I also saw him walking around the room chatting with people as well.

It wouldn’t be a LAN without breakfast a well, TwoDaves was at it again putting together breakfast for everyone.

Lots of storage was to be had, you can see Draymac giving CrazyBillyBob looks here and if I’m not mistaken the look of frustration from Ryan looks like BillyBob just finished screaming STORAGE.

I put together a last minute LanOC Veteran contest to see who still has the most LanOC nametags and shirts. We had a tie between Shroud and JJSky500. Even more impressive was there were a few people who still had their sticky name badges even!

All the Thank-you’s

At the end of every event I’m just blown away at the long list of people I need to thank. If it wasn’t for our sponsors, dedicated staff, and all of the volunteers who give up their time before and after the LAN  we wouldn’t have such an amazing event.

I wanted to give a special thanks to everyone who helped with the cleanup after the event

A big thanks to Sapphire for coming out and hanging out with us as well as their support!

As was pointed out on the forums, our network was rock solid this time around. A big thank you to Gaston for his time at the LAN as well as the time he spends working on the configuration and working with me months and months ahead of each of our events. Along with that a special thanks to Trendnet for their continued support of our network. Gaston was even able to get away from the network a little throughout the event, a sign of how good things were going!

To the staff in general who kept so busy at the event that I actually don’t have a photo of them. These are people who basically give up their good time at the LAN so that everyone else can have a good time. Remember that before you get upset about something at the next LAN you go to.

And again a BIG thank you to every single one of our sponsors. There are just too many to thank. Below I have included a list of them. Be sure to thank them for their support on their Facebook pages

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legends, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers. If you are interested in writing for Wes here at LanOC you can reach out to him directly using our contact form.
