30 Hour LAN Update

The 30 hour LAN in January will not have the Lord of the Rings Trilogy screened. This would have cost us $340 in copyright screening fees.

Anybody who wants to watch the whole thing can talk to me - we may have a private screening at my house over the Christmas break (big screen, surround sound comfortable chairs)

I'm thinking about shifting the date to the 20-21 Jan for personal reasons - does anybody have any objections?

We will have two different prices. Come for $15 - pizza included Saturday night - all other meals your cost.

Come for $35 all meals included. BBQ Dinner Friday night, midnight snack, Breakfast (McDonalds) Saturday morning, sandwiches and cake Saturday lunch - all inclusive.

The Individual UT Competition has been postponed due to low registration (at this time of year, who can blame everyone for being busy). We've decided to hold it on Saturday 14th January (at the end of the 30-hour Lan). If you wish to register, please email It will be a groups-of-6 qualifying round, with 4 or 5 rounds of 1-on-1 deathmatch until we reach the last 2 players who will play off for the title of Grand Master.

Hope to see you all on Finals Day.

Round 8/4 Results

The LAN on 29th October held Round 8 of the Top Gun trophy individual tournament and Round 4 of the pairs tournament for RAW WAR 2005.
The scores have really settled down to identify the top teams in each genre.
Well done to the pairs of Bosom Buddy /Redback and Gunner / Viper for tying the UT2004 table, Elnaria / Enigma for smashing us all at Rise Of Nations with Nightshade / Strider 2nd, and Bosom Buddy / Redback driving Insane with Rochie / Stretch a close 2nd.

Grand Final
The Grand Final on 26th November will be for the pairs tournament only.
I will post the format for this next. You will need to make sure you register for this well in advance so we can have the draw sorted in time. This is your chance to rise above the rankings from the last few months and go for gold!
Prizes on offer include software, gift vouchers and more.

Stay tuned for more news on the 2006 LAN's and RAW WAR formats.
