I realized I posted my event in the wrong section, so excuse the double post! :dry:

Event: Windy City LAN, The First
Date: 12/4 - 12/6
Cost: $45
Location: Holiday Inn Chicago-Elk Grove, 1000 Busse Rd, Elk Grove Village, IL

We are planning our first LAN as Windy City LAN on December 4-6th. We are planning on 160 gamers with room to expand. Our staff has been throwing and attending LAN parties for years. Mostly at home LANs. Some have attended larger LAN parties in other cities and states. Our goal is to bring the larger style parties back to Chicago. The more games that are multiplayer that come out the more separated we are from each other. Sure you talk to people over team speak, mumble or in-game voice chat. But you lose the energy and excitement that comes with owning someone in the same room as you. That is where we come in bringing this experience back to gaming! Please join us as we begin this new journey together!
Gaming Tournaments:
•Call of Duty: Black OPs III
•Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void
•Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Tenative Tournament Games: (most likely will become official games, working out some details.)
•League of Legends
•Hearthstone Tournament

Our staff members may hold unofficial tournaments throughout the LAN for prizes as well. These will be posted.

Open Play Games:
•Call of Duty: Black OPs III
•Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
•Minecraft - Windy City LAN Server (our very own Minecraft server)
•Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
•Quake 3 Arena
•F.E.A.R. Combat
•Left 4 Dead 2

Other Activities:
•PC MOD Contest
•Raffle Tickets
•Food Drive

You are welcome to bring/suggest any open play servers to the LAN, we will have a special area near the server row for additional servers.

Sign up to the forums! Share your thoughts and ideas! Make requests and we will see what we can do!

I just wanted to follow up on this post.. We had a successful event. With over 130 attendees and staff this event was amazing for it being our first! We did have some power issues with the hotel not having the power they said they did, but they are upgrading it because they want us back! Look for our next event posting soon, we are planning for June, 2016.
