My buddy and I wanna come but... Age limit?

Postby Scaniaman93 » Sat Feb 21, 2015 10:53 pm

Hi there WestLAN people, my buddy and I are thinking about coming down to SaltLAN for the full 3 days and we first heard about the LAN through a friend who said it was really good so i did some research and we are so excited that are parents are willing to let us go. We need to know one thing though. Is there a age limit? My buddy and I are 15 and we didn't know if there was a age limit. I hope there isn't because we really, really wanna come down and join in the party! Since I've seen people going to LAN's I've always wanted to go and when i found out about WestLAN, I got really excited!

Hi,

I have known there to be under 18 year olds at the LAN, and the FAQ would seem to indicate it too.

Can I take alcohol?
Yes, All that we ask is your sensible with your drink. Sociable drinking is fine, spending the rest of the night with your head down the loo isn't.

There is a total ban on any members under the age of 18 from drinking alcohol, be this alcohol which has been bought by them or given to them by other members.


I think the main thing is how mature you are

There is no formal age limit. You'll need to be able to fend for yourself for the weekend (Cook your dinner, microwave / oven provided. Clean up after yourself), and that's about it.

If you're substantially under 18, I'd appreciate having a quick chat with your parents in advance, and their contact details in case there are any problems (Sickness, etc)

Due to problems in the past, no alcohol for under 18's I'm afraid.

Swallow, come!
