LL2 - “And a big bag of popcorn” - 09.08.2004

If you’re looking for the first Laclede’s LAN appearance of both BEan and ACE (and who wouldn’t), it’s right here at our second event. ACE showed up with a case whose yellow sheen evoked visions of a tropical paradise, even in the darkest basement of Chesterfield Presbyterian Church. Although still sequestered in the kids’ area, and still using ancient monitors and equipment, we doubled our attendance to 16 people, and started the competitive tradition of LL with our tournaments in StarCraft and Counter-Strike 1.5. (And the somewhat short-lived tradition of the Big Bag O’ Popcorn.)

Attendees: 16 + 4 staff

Games Spotted: Aliens vs. Predator 2, Doom 3, Warcraft III

Tournaments: Counter-Strike 1.5, Starcraft
