NWRL Fall 2013 LAN Party
We'll be holding the LAN Party on November, 2nd & 3rd 2013 from 2pm to 8am at the Sallal Grange in North Bend, Washington - directions
This is our second large scale LAN party so we are still learning. In a nutshell, we are having a large computer gaming party with social interaction, fun games, contests, and over $300 in prizes. This LAN Party is open to all games but will feature contests for a few specific games. There will be concessions and tables available outside of the game room.
Please direct any and all communications to: firstname.lastname@example.org
