Oh yes, we still try to keep the train chugging. Attendance varies but our events seem to only be getting more fun. If its a small group, the event is more tight-knit. If its full, we get a ridiculous number of concurrent games going. All around good times.

Musiclol chairs is full-contact musical chairs.

Hey guys, just to let you know our early registration closes tomorrow Thursday August 19th at 1PM. You can pre-register here.


We have posted a tentative schedule of events here.
And we also have posted our Pittco Roulette games here. Pittco Roulette is a series of organized matches across a wide variety of games that will run continuously throughout the LAN. The winners get free 16oz cans of BAWLS.

This LAN will be small but so far we have ~60 people signed up and growing. This LAN has alot of fun stuff planned so it's sure to be a blast!
