Lan Party Time! Again! At Last!

So, yeah, I decided it's way past time for another LAN party. By my estimation, there wasn't one for all of '07, so we're way past due.

So here are the details for this year's LAN party:
Where: the Walker Residence, in Kaysville Utah. If you're invited, I'll send an address and a link to google maps. Any further info, you can contact me.

When: October 17th, 2008, we will start at 5:00, and the party will last into the night (my estimation is 11:00 or later, I will update this post as details become available.)

Who:
*Jake Wilcox
*Jeff Wilcox
*Andy Walker
*Krys Johnson
*Mark Wilcox
*Aaron Sitzman
*Julianne Wilcox
*Cody Walker
*Kyle Heath

EDIT: I've taken out our non-RSVPs and put them at the bottom of this post. I wanted to make the main list neat, but retain a list of those who couldn't make it this time for the sake of future parties.

Kyle Heath has also been added to the list. 15 Oct 1:00pm -Jake.

I updated the list last night. The people with asterisks by their names have RSVP'd, and I've removed the people who have RSVP'd that they won't be there. That's eight by my count.

IF YOU ARE NOT ON THIS LIST, YOU MAY NOT COME TO THIS PARTY. IF YOU FEEL THAT IT IS AN OVERSIGHT THAT YOU ARE NOT ON THIS LIST, YOU MUST CONTACT ME (JEFF).

Why: Because it's been too long.

What: Huh?

So, yeah, if you're on the list, you'll be receiving an email telling you that you're invited and requesting an RSVP.

There will be a cover charge, as the plan for this party is to have Garcia's cater again. I like Garcia's, and I've heard no complaints about them from fellow party goers in years past, so if you have a problem with it, you can go stick your head in a pig. The plan right now is to make the cover $15. It will almost certainly not go up from there, and it may go down. Again, keep an eye on this post as the most up to date details will be here.

This is what you should bring with you: Your computer, as we don't have enough spares to go around; a power strip, since everyone will need multiple places to plug in; network cables, so that your computer can talk to ours; A switch if you have one (a discount is being considered for those who bring one); headphones, if you want sound.

Expect to have one meal at the party, and a good time. Specific instructions for invitees will be sent via email.

Non-attendees:

Eric Widdison
Leon Walker
Gary Walker
Stan Wilcox
Eric Degroot
Sterling Canfield
Scott Barber

WOOT! A lan party! This has been too long coming.

Sheek said...

By switch, do you mean switches only, or are hubs also ok?

Jeff said...

Hubs are fine, switches are preferable. It's looking like we'll probably have enough to cover everyone, but anything extra you bring will be nice to have.

Jake said...

If you do bring a hub, you may find yourself the only occupied branch on it, negating any benefit of bringing it in the first place. :)

I'm looking forward to this party. It'll be nice to see everyone again after so long.
