Pre-LL - The Mizzou LAN Project (2002-2003)
We started LAN parties as private gatherings in our high school and college years, just like most gamers do. Our first foray into public LAN parties was known as “The Mizzou LAN Project”. Although we had the name “Laclede’s LAN” in our heads, it didn’t really fit a LAN that wasn’t in Saint Louis. The experiences and lessons learned at this event (and we’re not talking about college) would directly influence Laclede’s LAN.
