Two new LANs are taking signups NOW!

With Easter and Summer LANs open for signups right now you've got plenty of time to book time off and get your name on the list.

We've experienced an influx of great new board games, as well as party orientated computer games. There's never been as wide a variety of activities. There might even be a Discworld invasion soon.

Everybody's dead, Dave.

Summer LAN signup is ready to go, no excuses

With 140 days (mere months) still to go the dates for the Summer LAN are already in stone and signup is live.

Possibly a prize for Serenica who has surely paid earlier than anyone has ever before. Outstanding. Possibly not. We'll see.

LANs are good places to see the latest tech. Invariably someone brings along something very Shiny (!) for everyone else to drool over. Easter's ShinyLAN was no exception.

Porn has never looked so good! Steady, Dave Taylor.

We're ahead of the game again

Two LANs planned ahead for this year. Might even get Christmas sorted before the Easter LAN actually happens, and then that'll be a record.

The Easter LAN falls early April this year so there's almost exactly one month to go!

Apologies for the early payment timer being broken this whole time. I'm about to fix it, but something tells me when I do there'll only be 5 minutes left on the clock and nobody will notice it working!

<- Oh look - next year's LANs!

Ahead of the game? Surely not. Check out all those future Shiny dates!

2014 is the Chinese year of the LAN, so get on and book the time off because next year there'll be no excuses.

(See how this time I've got them listed in reverse order. Last time I tried it with the later ones on top and everybody got confused and signed up to the wrong event.)

SL13.1 - Anyone fancy a LAN?

I was chatting to the lads the other day, and we thought it might be nice to have a LAN party.

For all the details, including tourney structures and things that are new, see the forum.

SL12.3 - Should probably mention, Christmas LAN is coming!

Apparently there's another LAN coming up soon! And what's more, at the time of writing there are only two days left to grab yourself a proverbial early bird ticket. Probably should have posted something a little earlier.

People actually voted for the Christmas dates this year, specifically engineered to avoid Boxing Day, so maybe this year will be our biggest Christman LAN! No excuses.

Prices are the same as below. I can't be arsed to repeat them again. Actually, copy and paste is rather easy, and I know you like the pretty colours...

Early payment will be 30! (to be paid more than 30 days in advance)

The Summer LAN is SOLD-OUT!

No mistake - 40 people have actually taken it upon themselves to commit to the cause and pay in advance. Many even saved themselves a fiver and paid more than 30 days in advance.

Outstanding work!

Unfortunately this means nobody else can get in on the action. Best not turn up on the day expecting a seat, a table and a cable. Not gonna happen.

It is, however, still entirely possible some fool will have to cancel at the last minute. Should that happen a slot will open up and someone else could jump in, so check the signup list regularly.

Thanks again to everyone who's signed up and paid up - you've no idea how happy that makes me, or how much easier it makes the job of running one of these bleedin' things.

Plus, this ought to be the best LAN in quite some time! Check the forum for information about some exciting new activities, and tourney/quiz team allocation, etc.

Christmas LAN dates are up, so book 'em off NOW!

Signup will be enabled a little later, to avoid confusion with the Summer LAN.

27th - 30th December. Dodging Boxing Day this time by popular demand, so no excuses!

We polled for Christmas LAN dates, see the link below. The results speak for themselves.

Early payment will be 30! (to be paid more than 30 days in advance)

SL12.2 - Summer LAN, + dates poll for our Winter wonderLAN

Signup for the Summer 2012 LAN is up.

24th - 27th August. Perhaps this one will be bigger than Easter, for a change.

No BBQ this Easter but maybe it'll happen in the Summer. Failing that there's always chili.

^-- There's the button, go and press it!

Also, I've put up a poll in the forum to find out which Winter dates you guys would prefer. There are a few options this time. Please vote so we can ensure the Winter LAN has a good attendance.

Early payment will be 30! (to be paid more than 30 days in advance)

SL12.1 - Easter LAN Approaches...

Signup for the 2012 Easter LAN has been up for a little while now, but we're still in the EARLY PAYMENT phase, in which you can save a fiver.

6th - 9th April. We're a bit skint, so tell your friends. That's also why the price has gone up a tad.

Easter is traditionally our biggest event, and with a bit of luck the weather might allow for a BBQ.

Due to Xan-induced guilt Excal went and blew our budget on shiny prizes at Christmas, so we REALLY need you guys to get your sausages in a row and sign up!

Early payment now 30! (to be paid more than 30 days in advance)

Standard price the usual 35 (within 30 days, in this case after 6th March or something like that)

On the door price WILL BE 45! (or 15/day - so commit for the cause!)

Posted by Dave on 29th February 2012

SL11.3 - The Christmas LAN is on!

Hells yeah. Another chance to finish a game of TI without anyone dropping out after 12 minutes.

26th - 29th December. Be there and be square.

Popular demand quashed cancellation 'rumours' (wasn't me), so show your support and sign up!

Full details of the tournaments will be on the forums soon, no doubt.

I promise there'll be better prizes this time, Xan. I'm pretty sure you can get 5p for the empty Lambrini bottle from somewhere, though.

Early payment now only 20! (to be paid more than 30 days in advance)

Standard price the usual 30 (within 30 days, in this case after 29th November)

On the door price WILL BE 35! (or 12.50/day - commit for the cause!)
