For the fourth and final time this year, it’s time for a LAN party! Dubbed the Resurrection LAN, it will be falling on Easter weekend (March 25-27), lasting from Friday at 4pm to Sunday at 4pm. Unlike the last few events, this time around we will be limiting the seating to only the great hall, since we expect a somewhat lighter turnout this time around. As usual, we will be accepting any help with setting up the event starting at 12pm on Friday, as well as with tear-down after 4pm on Sunday.
Also make sure to come to the meeting this Tuesday (March 22)! We will be going over the last few details that need ironed out before the event launches in earnest. We will be meeting in Oakwood in the MSC at 7pm.
P.S. This is the final LAN event for a good majority of our current executive board; press X to pay your respects!
“Respawning in 3…”
Rev up those rigs, because the next PONG LAN is almost here! Dubbed the Forever-A-Lan, it will be going down Friday, February 12 through Sunday, February 14 (aka Valentine’s Day Weekend), As usual, event setup will start at noon on Friday, and anyone who comes willing to help out is welcome to do so.
If there’s a specific tournament or event you want to see on the schedule, make sure to come by the final PONG meeting before the event on Tuesday, February 9 in Ballroom B in the MSC. This meeting will primarily involve collecting event suggestions from attendees and making a preliminary list of what to expect at the LAN, but you don’t get a say if you don’t show up!
“You are not prepared!”

“Wanna buy my Wazer Wifle?”
We are only a couple weeks away from a LAN of apocalyptic proportions, officially dubbed the PONG WasteLan. Make sure to start stocking up on rations and securing a seat for the event, because on Friday, November 20 the bombs will fall.
As usual, anyone and everyone is encouraged to help set up before the event! It’s a great way to get involved in the org, as well as secure yourself a couple extra prize tickets. Also, the next and last meeting before the LAN will be Tuesday, November 17 at 7pm in Ballroom B.
“DEMOCRACY IS NON-NEGOTIABLE”
The 2015 Expo LAN is over, and boy was it a good one. We would like to thank every single person who attended, and an extra-special thanks to those who helped out with set-up and tear down. We would also like to take this chance to ask for your feedback about the LAN, what you liked, what you didn’t like, stuff you would like to see, yadda yadda. We have an anonymous survey here, or if you just wanna say something short and sweet feel free to hop on over to our facebook page.
Now for what you guys actually care about, the date for the next LAN! The next LAN party will be held……… November 20! Yes that’s right, you only have to wait a little over a month to get your next dose of LAN goodness. As usual, we will be posting reminders and such as the date nears, to keep an eye out!
One last bullet point to go through quick. As many of you have already heard, most of our current executive board will be retiring at the end of this year due to graduation and other circumstances, so we are on the lookout for new execs! This is an awesome opportunity for anyone looking for a extra-curricular leadership position, so get involved the org and make a australian pokies online name for yourself! If you have any questions about the positions up for election, feel free to contact any of the current execs or yell at us on Facebook, which ever you prefer.
