Hello! My name is Lodsiek and I'm here from Laclede's LAN, a Saint Louis-based community for PC gamers. We have thrown thirteen PC-focused LAN parties over the past decade and are planning another on January 3rd, 2015, with tournaments in League of Legends, Counter-Strike: GO, Hearthstone and even Minecraft. Even if you play something else, we’ll be devoting resources to make sure LAN servers are set up even for non-tournament games. Our events have proven (in our humble opinion) to be a highly effective and enjoyable way to draw together the PC enthusiast and gamer crowd for a memorable weekend, and we’re asking for help to get the word out about the next one. Our approach this time has been to create a Kickstarter campaign that we hope will attract not only attendees and tournament entrants for our events, but also potential donors that want to support our non-profit organization, which is further explained on our site. To this end, we are working hard to deliver information about our project to every corner of the web, where our audience – PC gamers, IT guys, coders, and even people who just like the idea – have the best chance of finding us. Please tell anyone you know that may be interested to check out our Kickstarter video at kck.st/1lsDPL9 and our main website, www.lacledeslan.com. Join our forums! Tell your friends! Adopt a Cable! We look forward to meeting you!
