Next LAN of 2014...

Hi everyone and sorry you had to wait so long for an answer.

So to confirm this, We are really sorry to say, there will be NO LAN before Christmas (Reasons below)
But we are planning one for January or February 2015


As some of you know we knew we wouldn't have many more LANs this year, if any due to changes we was planning on making.


Several reasons, but some of the main ones, we have lost Dotty for Kitchen work and Linda is due an operation (in 3 weeks) which will put her out of action for approximately 3 months.
As much as we know people will help, there is a limit to how much they can help, We wouldn't even be able to load the cars (or unload) from home, let alone at the venue.

So with this in mind we have felt it safer to say no.

Dawson has asked if we can do a one day tournament event, this is possible (we will make a new post about this)

We will be looking at doing a meet up before Christmas if people are interested, pub, nightclub, hotel etc.

again, sorry for the bad news

A shame no more this year, but the other stuff sounds good. Hope Linda stays well throughout her non-action, I would say get you to do the work for a change but...

Re: Next LAN of 2014...

Thanks for letting us know, Oli has been harping on about it for a while now, despite not being news he wanted to hear, it will put his mind at rest.
As Plat says, family come first, and like wise give us a shout if any help needed.
What has happened to Dotty? hope all is ok there?

Re: Next LAN of 2014...

Sounds sensible. We expect to have the little one before Christmas so we may only be able to come for one night if it's after New Year. Still want to come though.

Hope everyone is ok.

Re: Next LAN of 2014...

Thanks for the good wishes. I am actually having both knees partially replaced (new knee caps ) So that will put me out of action for a while. Hoefully in teh new year there will be a new improved version running around. Won't stop me being able to prop up a corner with a glass of wine in my hand when we have this meet up though

As for Dotty, since she moved to Cardiff it has beem more of a strain on her to actually get to the Lans and she has decided that she has just got too old for it all so she is hanging up her apron strings.

My op is 2 weeks today. I am expecting to be in ofr a few days but I think I should be able to get net access so i will keep you all posted.

Re: Next LAN of 2014...

We are planning a lot of stuff with LANs next year, we have even been building up the user base (you may have noticed) to help alone.

Really sorry we couldnt do it, Still thinking of doing like a 1 day even (maybe over one night) with consoles just for regular members, Consoles and Drinking, seems a good match to me

Yes. This. + a couple of other games that people may enjoy, SF4, Tekken, FIFA, anything where a competition could be formed. etc.

Remember. Don't drink and drive.

Re: Next LAN of 2014...

Due to a new shift pattern at work, I can now offer more help if needed at weekends.

(Only working 1 in 4 weekends now, and very few midnight finishes, Yay!)
