This year, I’m going to do something different than last year. I’m having this at my home and it will be 8 hours of gaming and more!
Mark your calendars for August 16 (Saturday). As for the time, I’m going to ask you folks to pick between 1-9pm or 2-10pm that day. Please only reply if you plan on coming to the event.
There will be a FFA and Doubles tourney. Possibly 4v4 if we have enough attend. Prizes TBD.
This is in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
I’ll have much more details to follow. I’ve got to secure prizes, the time as mentioned above, some logistics for additional XBOXs and screens.
Now here is where I need your help folks. Unlike last year, which was held at a LAN center, I’ll be hiring the same fellow, but instead of going there, have him come to my home. This is more expensive than last year. However, also as mentioned above, it’s going to be 8 instead of 3 hours. I was able to keep the cost pretty low with admission being $15. However, this year I need to raise funds due to the added expense. Otherwise it’s going to cost $35 per person, and I’d like to avoid that high of a cost to each, if possible. So even if you don’t plan on coming, I’d really appreciate it if you’d consider donating to the blog, via the paypal link on the main page.
Here’s the good thing about that, if everyone who came to the site in just ONE day of the 365 days in a year donated 50 cents, I’ve have enough to cover the LAN and the blog’s renewal. I hope that you find my blog is worth at least that much in entertaining Halo articles, news, art, reviews, the Spirit of Fire Podcast and so on. From now until Aug 1st, or if I raise enough sooner, I’ll be holding the fundraiser for this and on occasion post a gentle reminder. This isn’t mandatory. I’ll never ask for “dues”. My site is free to all.
If enough is raised to cover the cost of the LAN, then it’s free to come to. If not, then whatever the difference is will be split between all LAN Attendees.
Food and Refreshments will be available as part of your admission. Food will be the good old American classic summer foods: Hot Dogs and Hamburgers. PLUS, I may just make a special dish…
If you want to bring someone that won’t be gaming, that is fine. There will be a small charge for refreshments to them. That TBD by the amount of attendees.
