LoL All-Stars Viewing Party

Hey everyone!

I hope your semesters are going well so far! We’re going to be hosting a viewing party for the League of Legends All-Stars event on May 8th at noon. The event will be announced when we have more information. Hope to see you all there!

Spring and Beyond!

Hello Everyone!

With the Forever A LAN in the past, we don’t have any future major LANs scheduled for the rest of the semester. But, fear not! We will be trying to host a few smaller events or activities throughout the rest of the spring semester. Make sure to check our website or Facebook page to stay updated!

Other than events, we also have elections coming up this semester! We will be running elections to decide Executive positions starting next Fall. Make sure to attend the PONG general meetings that occur biweekly on Wednesdays, with the next being on March 5th!

PONG Forever A LAN

Hello everyone!

The next PONG LAN is the PONG Forever A LAN! This is the third, and sadly final, LAN of the school year.

Bring your desktop, or play light on a laptop. Just come on over to the Stout campus in Menomonie for 48 hours of fun!

To register for the LAN, go to pong.uwstout.edu/alp, create an account, click Seating Chart, and pick a spot. YOU MUST SIT DOWN SOMEWHERE TO COUNT AS REGISTERED. If you do not pick a spot, you are not considered registered! You are free to move around and change seats on ALP even after you pick a seat.

ALL attendees MUST preregister at pong.uwstout.edu/alp.

Students MUST also register on OrgSync to sign the risk awareness form electronically. Go to orgsync.com, sign in with your Stout username and password. Instructions will be posted soon.

Registering gives us numbers to send to Sponsors to get more AWESOME prizes! It is important that you register early so we can send those numbers to our Sponsors!

The Space LAN will be held in the Great Hall in the MSC for 48 hours on February 7th at 4:00pm to February 9th at 4:00pm.

Welcome Newbies!!!

Hello Everyone!

Now that the Summer Vacation is officially over, it’s time to get back down to business… And I don’t intend on defeating any Huns.

I’m talking about the next LAN PARTY!!! Our PONG Expo LAN will be coming Friday, October 4th. MARK YOUR CALENDARS, because this is the BIGGEST LAN of the fall semester. More information about the LAN (tournaments, events etc..) will be discussed at our First Meeting: Tuesday, September 10 @ 7:00 PM in the Great Hall of the Memorial Student Center. BE THERE!!!!

Some of the topics that we plan to cover:

  • How To: Register your console to play on Xbox Live / PSN
  • Who is your PONG LAN and what does he do?
  • Tournament Ideas: WHAT SHALL WE PLAY TOGETHER???
  • GET INVOLVED! We need new executive members to help us be even more awesome!
  • General questionnaire about PONG, LANs, or Executive positions

After we have covered these topics, we will close the meeting and look at funny stuff on the forums.

FOR THE NEWBIES:

Welcome to PONG! We are excited to see what all of you will bring to us this year!.. I do have a mission for you.

If you haven’t yet…

Once you have all of those tasks completed you will be rewarded with 10 Gold and a +4 STR +4 STA Leather Belt…
FOR THOSE RETURNING:
We have executive positions that will be opening and we need YOU to make sure our org is in tip-top shape to dominate the rest of campus! (Plus you get to sit at a really big table at the LANs).
Our open positions will be for…
  • Vice President
  • Treasurer
  • Web Master
All other positions (Except for President and Network Admin) will need to run for their positions as well. HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED!!!
I look forward to all of our crazy antics and exciting adventures that are bound to ensue this year.
Hope to see you all at the meeting!!
Sincerely the lovable, awesome, and cuddly…

PONG Expo LAN Information

Hello everyone.  Hope your summer is going well!

We have opened tentative sign-ups for some tournaments for the upcoming PONG Expo LAN.  League of Legends is one of these tournaments.

Please keep in mind that all tournament start times are tentative, and may be changed as the event gets closer.

Feel free to go and sign up for tournaments.

Also, I’m sure you are really looking forward to the PONG Expo LAN, and want to reserve yourself a seat.

Well, to keep things fair for incoming freshmen who may want to attend our event, we will not be opening reservations until September 10th during the first PONG General Meeting.

If you want to have first pick of seats, attend the meeting so you can see when we open it, either in person or over the live stream (link will be posted later).

Seats will go on a first come, first serve basis. Once all seats are reserved, we will not be able to accept any more reservations.

Your best bet is to tune in on our first meeting so you can reserve yourself a seat.

Summer Break

Hello PONGers.  We hope everyone is enjoying their summer break.

We wanted to inform everyone about our upcoming PONG Expo LAN in October.  This is the first event of the 2013-14 school year, and will last for 48 hours!  Also, this event will be one of the biggest PONG events of the year.  It is the first event after classes start, so there will be a lot of new people attending.  We expect to completely fill our 200 person limit.

You can head on over to OrgSync to sign up and sign the risk awareness form.  However, you will not be able to pick a seat until September 10th.  We do this to make it fair, so new members who will be joining us in the fall have a chance to get a seat.

If you have any questions or ideas on what you would like to see at this event, please let us know on our forums.

Final PONG Meeting Tonight May 7th @ 8:00 pm

As always, if you can’t make it, feel free to join us via livestream at www.twitch.tv/ponguwstout! See you there!
