I came across this History of Unreal Tournament video on YouTube. It really brings back the memories…We should have a party where we just play UT/UT2004…ok…and maybe Quake.

Hi guys…This LAN PARTY (LAN Party Association of New England) just came up on the radar. Any interest? It is just one day. May 4th at noon to May 5th at noon. We could drive up Saturday morning. Game all day. Get some sleep. Game some more…and then head home Sunday. The cost is $20. Check out the game list! They are planning a bunch of stuff we play (UT, HL, CS:GO, TF2, Armagetron) and some stuff we don’t.
Sound off in the Forum if you guys want to go to a new LAN! (New to us that is.)
IT IS TIME FOR THE 2018 EXTRA LIFE CHARITY GAMING MARATHON!
This is the Gaming Marathon we participate in every year for the last 5 years! This will be our 6th year. This is not your traditional marathon. For this marathon, my friends and I have set aside tomorrow, November 3rd, as a day to fundraise for our local Children’s hospitals, by doing what we love – Playing Games. What makes it a marathon is, we are going to do it for 24 hours! And you are invited! (You don’t have to stay for 24 hours.) 🙂
But first, a little about our team. Our team consists of, myself & my son (playing for Children’s Specialized Hospital of NJ), Tony M (TX children’s hospital), Chris P (VA children’s hospital), Lou S, Howard N, and Larry D (all playing for Children’s Specialized Hospital of NJ). This year, we have one member participating from home, and one member flying in from TEXAS for the event!
Here is our schedule and some details. We would love it if you could stop by and say hello, and offer support and encouragement! We will have a way on site for you to support the hospitals with your tax-deductible donation! (There is also a way to donate at the bottom of this e-mail.)
Innovation Fitness Solutions in Butler has been generous enough to have hosted us for all 6 years. The website is http://www.innovationfitnesssolutions.com/. (The mobile version of the site appears down right now, so make sure you either go to the site on a desktop, or visit there Facebook page).
The address is:
1574 Rt 23 North
Butler, NJ 07405
Here is a rough schedule:
We will start to set up around 6:00PM on Friday. I’m blocking out 6-8pm for set up. During that time, we will be setting up the tables and network. I also plan on building an enclosure for games called Artemis Bridge and Star Trek Bridge Crew. We will be setting up at least one VR station for visitors to try out. We plan on being available for the visitors to stop by and see what we are up to, and try out the equipment until about 10pm. Then we will lock down for the night and head home for rest. We will start up again at 8:00am.
On Saturday, we start up at 8:00. We don’t usually schedule the games in advance. We usually just play whatever everyone wants to play for the moment. We break for lunch usually around 2, and dinner around 7-8. Besides those times, we will be gaming. We have several video games to play, as well as card, board, and tabletop games. You are welcome to join us in any game. We can help you learn and try out games you may have never heard of before.
We will play games until the early hours of the morning. Some folks will take a brake around 4am. Then we start moving again around 6:00-6:30. Keep in mind, this is the day everyone gets an extra hour of sleep, but not us.
We play the “clean up game” from 7:00-8:00am. When everything is packed up, we usually head to a diner for a wrap up. Again…if you are around, you are welcome to join us for breakfast!
And that is how our event usually runs. You can pop in virtually or in person. We would love it if you could stop by and support us and the hospital! We would like to make this year a record year!!!
