LAN PARTY! - Saturday, January 5th at 7:00pm!

Edit:  Saturday, January 5th at 7:00pm!  See you guys there!


It's that time of the year!  I apologize for waiting so long to get this started.  I'm going to be going for several weeks in January/February and the exact dates just now got sorted out.

I know you guys are bums and probably don't want to do anything on New Year's eve like proper gentlemen, so I'm open the following weekend.  Here are the dates I'm available:

  • Friday, December 28th
  • Saturday, December 29th
  • Monday, December 31st (the way God intended it!)
  • Friday, January 4th
  • Saturday, January 5th


Let me know how your schedules look!

(...yay LAN!)

I could definitely do it on 01/04.  Any other time, and I'll have to wait until I make the schedule following the 5th.

I will be out of town on the 4th, my vacation is sort of split up this year.  I could do the 28th-30th time slot, or after the 5th but that is not convenient for pat.

Haha jerk.  Actually my boss is spending the winter up in Breckenridge and invited us all up there for his birthday weekend.  I just can't remember if it is the 4th, 5th and 6th or the 5th, 6th and 7th.

It's almost time!  I'll see you guys on Friday, January 4th.  I'll have everything ready by 7:00pm, but feel free to drop in whenever it is convenient.

Any snacks, drinks, or food you guys are craving?

I now have Saturday off as well so if it works out better for you guys to do the 5th instead of the 4th - I'm good with that too.

Spanky said Saturday works better for him.  It also works better for me, as I won't be getting home until ~6:00pm on Friday.  That doesn't give me much time to get everything ready.

If nobody objects, I think Saturday would be the better option.

Susie and I were both off for Friday so it was fine, I didn't realize bob was getting in so late, so Saturday it is then! I have informed the Ironman, hopefully he shows.

If everyone doesn't mind, I would like to offer an invite to our house for this year's LAN party.

As always, I have to work NYE.  But would either 01/02 or 01/03 into the next day work for everyone?

I just picked up a little somethin'-somethin' for the LAN party.  24 amazing cans of caffeine-infused goodness.  Gentlemen, may I present...



That's a 12-pack for general consumption, and a second 12-pack to the winner (which means Eric).  I'm thinking Unreal Tournament 3, deathmatch, instagib, with big heads.

Not sure, but will we need internet capabilities for the LAN?  I don't have any cable-age run to the basement yet.

Or are we just planning some board games - seeing as it might just be 3 dudes + wives?  Which would be fine as well.

Alright, feel free to come between 6pm and 7pm.  Bring board games and we'll have snacks, drinks, and food here.

I have no clue who'll show up but that's ok.

I didn't receive hardly any response for the LAN so I'm assuming it's just the four of us and maybe Briney and Susie....so rather than lug around all the computer stuff we could just do board games.  Maybe do a summer LAN instead sometime?

Sure, that works for me.  Briney hasn't committed yet?  What a bum!

We're going to have to chug 24 cans of Surge by ourselves, which I'm pretty sure it fatal.
