Calgary, AB LAN Party - Saturday(s)?

Postby zero10 » Wed Nov 19, 2008 10:13 pm UTC

Wondering if anybody would be up for a LAN party in Calgary. I have a house in Central-NW Calgary (Tuxedo / Mount Pleasant) and a room that would fit 6 people and their computers. Used to have these with a group of friends in BC almost every week and since I moved back to Calgary I 1) don't know anybody, 2) haven't had any LAN parties. Thought this might not be a bad idea to address both of the above points, possibly even resulting in some people having fun.

Saturdays work best for me, but I am not any more partial to any one saturday over another and I don't know how quick there will be any interest (if there is any) so I am hesitant to put a date in the title.

I might possibly be interested if you can round up a few more people.

i may be setting up a place near downtown, a general hangout/cafe. i will be offering lan party hosting, as well as internet advertising for said partys. pc, xbox, and ps3 lan partys will be offered. does this sound like something you may utilise ever in the future?

There's always Switchbox or The Node (off Memorial, I believe) although I have never actually been to either.

I would probably be interested. I find my gaming PC is falling further and further behind compared to modern systems but for PS3/xbox gaming I would be interested. I don't know anywhere in the city that does that right now.

If I'm ever in that neck of the woods (which happens a few times a year) I'd probably be up for things.
