Great lan, and i'm glad some of the 1st timers enjoyed it. It pays to give a great first impression.

The net woes are the same as always and will always be that way. Just grab patches pre-lan and if it's vitally important you need it, ask a staff member.

The baps idea was stolen from another lan me, beer, neo and mike sometimes attend and looks like it paid off here.. as did chocolate blackmail for the tornies.

Opus, looks like you've found a secondary use apart from raping ppl in UT, so thanks very much for the banter and efforts for the organisation. It means the staff can concentrate on network and server issues.

As for Guitar Hero - It's already banned from Westlan.
If online bullying has taught us anything. It's that people would sooner hang themselves than lose a bit of weight.

LAN was awesome, big thanks to all of the staff for a great weekend.

Chocolate bribes seemed to get more people playing in the touneys, and I managed to win a prize in the CSS tourney (for coming second lol)! First time I've won anything at a LAN lol.

Baps were awesome, a big thanks for the time and effort put into cooking it all.

A big thanks to Opus in sorting the tourneys etc. and being generally cool.

The Wii was a pretty cool addition to this LAN, although the music did annoying after about 3 seconds.

I managed to forget a sleeping bag and pillow, so yet again I just laid on the solid floor in a t shirt and shorts using my hoody for some sort of cover and a pair of jeans as a pillow.....I have yet to actually remember to bring any sleeping stuff :lol: You'd have thought I'd have learned by now. I tend to sleep for about 2-3 hours over the whole weekend lol.
The sleeping area was a great idea as it kept all of the sleepers out of the way :lol:

I lol'd when I was referred to as "Ralz the rapist". :lol: And it was very fun goatse/meatspin/mylazysundays'ing charlie all weekend, and I didn't get done once, win!

All in all, it was a great LAN and I look forward to the next. :mrgreen:

Not sure how I can help you with that one, I guess if you chopped your leg off you could drain it out... :mrgreen:
