Fall 2018 Charity LAN October 20 - 21, 2018

The LAN party started a bit rough when the internet for the whole building dropped (turns out a lot of PC games are online these days), but luckily BraveSirRobbin (Tim Dollarhide) stepped in with Flash Tournaments to sate the competitive thirsts of the gaming masses!

Guess who’s back? Back again? Microsoft’s back, and their laptops are high-end. They also carted over a few XBox Ones and held an open-to-the-public Fortnite tournament. Thanks again to BackRoute, and for the custom PC contest by Vir1lity PC Customs.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped volunteer to setup and tear down at this event! Special thanks to BackRoute guys for helping setup, creating our Chill Zone area, and providing their very own Pouch Couch giveaway! We’d like to thank Fast Metal Labs for the sweet trophies, and Ayman Khuleif for running our Facebook campaign while on vacation in Egypt.
