After hosting the LAN for Kids event almost a month ago we knew we wanted to do more! The first event taught us a ton and so going forward we will be making a couple changes.

First, events will be held at the Library from now on. We are able to use the Library for free which is fantastic because room rental was a big expense the last go around.

Events will be much cheaper (or free). We are not allowed to accept any money for events we hold at the Library but we would still very much like to continue to help various charities and non-profits around town so we will sell reserved seats (possibly other cool things) on the site for $5.  Every penny of that will go to the charity of the month.  If you don’t wish pay you do not have to – just show up ready to game.

We will either take pizza orders at the event or have some available to buy. Drinks will also be available for purchase.

Finally, we had some awesome sponsors for the LAN for Kids event that let us use their switches but going forward we knew we should have the equipment in house. To that end we bought a 24-port gigabit switch and 10 5-port gigabit switches so we have the whole networking setup ready to go at a moments notice and it is all gigabit!

We’re hoping to hold events once every 1-1.5 months but it will depend largely on the availability of the Library meeting rooms. We will be sure to announce them well before hand here and on the facebook group page. E-mail me (Mike Archer) at or post any questions you’ve got here and I’ll do my best to answer.
