Spring 2019 Charity LAN March 9 - 10, 2019

We aren't big fans of major outages at our events (go figure), so notable tech stack upgrades from this LAN include an improved network stack that allowed for redundancy, power amperage monitoring that helped prevent unexpected power outages, and better control of projected video and audio levels for each section. This all resulted in improved staff mental health. As always, we appreciated Microsoft coming back with their high-end gaming laptops and XBoxes, holding another open-to-the-public Fortnite tournament. Additional partners included: BackRoute and their Smash Bros Tournament, custom PC contest by Fast Metal Labs, and In Win Development showing off some slick new cases. Staff snacks included Goldfish, Oreos, and granola bars. Nutrients were avoided.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped volunteer to setup and tear down at this event. Special thanks to BackRoute guys for helping set up, and creating the quite popular Chill Zone area! An artificer's thanks to Fast Metal Labs for the awesome handmade trophies. Social thanks to Ayman Khuleif for running our marketing campaign while traveling the world (literally). Technical thanks to Techs for all your help throughout the event. Specific thanks to the CSGO players who helped us test our under-development CSGO server automation tool, you all provided great feedback! And a Special Guest Thanks to the LANFest President and staff who attended and helped throughout the event.
