First LAN of 2010

Postby mikethegreek » Thu Jan 07, 2010 10:23 pm

Well i know most of you have been pestering us about our LAN dates for 2010.
Well we have been keeping quit as we have been planning what will hopefully be one insane weekend.

We are joining forces with ShinyLAN to run a 72 hours LAN over the Easter weekend.
The LAN will be held in Wincanton, Somerset rather than Budleigh and will run from 5PM on 2nd to 5PM on the 5th of April.

As this as a longer than normal LAN the pricing has changed a little.
it is £25 for the weekend up until one month before the event and it is then £30
It will be £37.50 on the door so there is a real saving to be had.

We are using the ShinyLAN signup system rather than ours so head over to their site and sign up
http://www.shinylan.co.uk/events.php?event=SL10.1&mode=signup

More details will be coming along soon along with everything you will need to know posted on our website and our forums.

Wincanton is about an hour and a half drive from Budleigh. That was driving not particularly quickly.

WestLAN could not get hall dates in the early year, so they have met a compromise and tried to organize *something*. Personally, I think it will be one of the better events. For those of you that are moaning, please don't waste bandwidth and don't bother posting. Just go the the next SaltLAN.

Shinylan always have a good event at easter, the only think that stops it being great is the small numbers, Winlan should solve that problem, hope to see a lot of you there.

I agree. Posting and moaning that it's too far away doesn't really help. You wanted dates, you got them. It's not a massive journey to go for 72 hours. Hell, me phil and mike have been up to barnsley for a weekend lan - 4.5 hrs or so to travel.

Just thank ur lucky socks that it's not anyway further away. If it's too far or you feel it's not worth it, just don't come!
If online bullying has taught us anything. It's that people would sooner hang themselves than lose a bit of weight.

for those that dont want to travel that extra hour and half, dont forget some people come from a long distance away, i have been to several shinylans, and they can be insane, they are alot more social than a westlan, and they are well worth it, also for the first people to get there, there is a dedicated sleeping room! just make sure you get to sleep before beer02!
