LAN Party News (It's All Good}

Felecia wanted me to pass on the info that you can come Saturday morning or even Friday evening and set up equipment - even stay and play. Late hours limits time and you can show up to take advantage of a a longer gaming session. Of course we will be playing Guild Wars, but Team Fortress will also be the "new" game of the day. Lotta folks requested it and we are glad to oblige. Never played it, but everyone says its not only great fun, but content is interspersed with occasional humor that keeps you laughing while fragging. We will have all components in place early so you can set up, plug in and start the massacres. We'll see how Team Fortress works out and may start trying to introduce a variety of games at each gathering. This one is gonna be a blast!

Food. We need chips, dips, drinks, any type of side dish you like and if you have some adventurous concoction this is a great place to try it out. We are all foodies. Look at me (aka lardass); I am not known to back away from the groceries. If Mr. and Mrs. Hoppa show up with that killer dip I'll be at the trough and in culinary heaven. Main dish is slow cooked brisket and Ashy is slow grilling so it will be fantastic. Rumor has it there may be a surprise shipment from NOLA so put your Cajun taste buds at the tip of your tongue. Lassiez les bon temps roulez, mon ami!! Oh yes let the good times roll! Boat drinks will be available and they are quite good even without alcohol. Our group is not rowdy so children are more than welcome. Hey, Brandon, Robert's son, led a mission last gathering. It was Thunderhead Keep! Did an outstanding job.

Plan on spending a day of wonderful comraderie and multitudes of laughter. Several out of town people can't make it because of work conflicts, but they will remote in to play. We should have full teams. Please try to bring your PCs. Part of the fun is seeing all the killer gaming units. I am bringing an extra PC and will gladly share. Felecia works like a wild woman to provide a clean well organized atmosphere so any food contributions will help. Bet Em brings some super thangy to eat so try it out. She's our resident Uber Foodie. She even bakes! Not much turns this group away unless you cook like Granny on the Beverly Hillbillies. Personally I'll try anything that doesn't include curry or beef liver. Guess that could be called pretty much a free range grazer.

Show up! Contact me! A good time will be had by all!

"On with the dance! let joy be unconfined;
No sleep till morn, when Youth and Pleasure meet
To chase the glowing hours with flying feet."

Just a note about team fortress 2. You will need to set up a steam account. Free to setup and free to use. Let me know if anyone needs help with this.
