It’s the day we’ve all dreaded and hoped for; it’s the final day of LAN. It’s the day when we’re happy to be getting to go home and sleep in our own beds, but there’s that little niggle in the back of your mind that doesn’t quite want it to end, although that’s probably more so for us because we have to take the stand to pieces and pack the van.
Overall we’ve had a fantastic weekend at Multiplay’s winter LAN – Insomnia 47, the gamers, the other exhibitors, the staff and the general atmosphere has been fantastic. I know despite fighting to stay awake and maintain a trail of thought for longer than 20 seconds (it’s usually 30 to 40 seconds easily) and having both knees give out I enjoyed myself.
Sure the hours are long and it’s more physical than my every-day desk job but we do it for you guys, our friends, fans and patrons. The competitions have been fun and the weekend has gone with minor hitches, our PC Build system died on us and the BenQ Grab a Grand machine started to show signs of wear and tear. Other than that the weekend was a blast and the LAN only specials went like hot cakes.
The pack down was smooth too and we got everything loaded before Multiplay had everything broken down which is a bit of a personal best for us.
