In the seemingly quite likely event that Valve release another update on a Friday (they seem to like doing it). If you put steam into offline mode and others at the event don't - those that have the update will have a later version of the game, so you will probably have trouble joining their games or vice versa.
The best we can do would be to get one person to get the update (we can sort the net connection if needs be). Then copy the complete files from the steamapps folder - as per Valve recommendations. Far less bandwidth / time involved than if everyone updated individually.
If this happens again, it would be an idea to let the staff know - to see if they can assist with the problem. Whether that be making the steamapps folder easily available to others at the lan, or giving one person more of the internet connection for a while to get update so it can be shared to everyone else. If we don't know, we can't help
