Well, the PONG Expo LAN was a huge success! We had the highest number of people since we lost our overnight LANs. In total 102 people were in attendance.

Even though the event is over, do not worry. We have another event in a short couple of weeks. PONG OctUberfest will take place on October 8th in Room 184 Micheels (same location as PONG Expo). Once again, the event will be FREE to everyone.

Since we almost filled the room (we only had 6 open chairs), we really need people to preregister for this event so we know if we need to find more space somehow. Please go here and preregister by clicking Yes or Maybe.  Thanks!

PONG LAN Tomorrow

The first PONG LAN of the 2011-2012 school year is tomorrow! The event takes place in Room 184 Micheels Hall on the UW Stout campus. The event is completely FREE to everyone; you do not need to be a student to attend. The LAN starts at 10:00am and ends at 10:00pm. There will be prizes!

If you want to attend, please go to and vote “Yes”. This helps us keep track of how many people are attending. It also gives us numbers to send to our awesome sponsors for more awesome loot!

Hope to see everyone there!

Upcoming PONG Meeting

The first PONG meeting is close at hand. The meeting will take place Tuesday night at 8PM in room 114 Jarvis Hall. There will be some signs to help you find the room.

We will be introducing ourselves to the new members of the org, who we are, what we do, along with answering any questions that you may have. We will then proceed into discussing Org stuff, and the LAN that is this weekend. If you are curious as to what PONG is, you should attend as it will probably answer many of your questions!

Cable Sale

Make it all the way here and find out you forgot your cable TV cable? Or that your printer doesn’t include a USB cable? No problem. PONG has what you need.

We are able to make cable TV cables to whatever length you need. The cost is $0.50 cents per foot and $1.00 for the ends.

If you are putting the TV on the same wall as the cable jack, a 15 foot cable will work great! It will be long enough to make it to the TV, and give you some extra slack so its not too tight.

If you are putting the TV on the opposite side of the room of the cable jack, a 25 foot cable will work great! Its long enough to make it to the other side of the room without getting in your way.

A 15 foot cable will cost you $8.50 and a 25 foot cable will cost $13.50. You can also request a specific length. If you want a 7 foot cable, we can make that. If you want a 32 foot cable, we can make that.

As for USB cables, the cost is 5 bucks for a 10 foot USB A to USB B cable. This type of cable will work with printers and some external devices. If you are not sure if it will work, just ask us!

As for Ethernet cables, we have 15 foot cables for 2 dollars.

We will be selling cables today outside the commons and tomorrow at the back yard bash. Just look for the big orange PONG banners!
