    Disco's LAN - Version II

    Guys I know most of us came from TOG and some are still members, if you know Disco from the CSS and DODS division him and his lovely wife brought a Motel in QLD, he is hosting his second LAN even over 3, yes 3 days cause he is a GOD!

    Now he provides rooms, foods and you can purchase grog there as well, it's being held in August on the 7th, 8th and 9th.




    You can get the full details on the TOG forums including signing yourself up, if you don't have access but want to attend let me know and I will PM Disco about it all guys.

    Disco's LAN


    Update: 3.04.09 - Server Lists

    Added a few more games to the server list: CS:S, DOD:S, TF2, L4D, COD4, COD:WAW, UT3, UT2004, Far Cry, Trackmania, and of course the Peggle eXtreme Championships... $2.00 chip-in per level per entrant, last man standing takes all. Good Times [​IMG]



    Update: 21.03.09
    - East Coast Group Travel

    Bus scenario - By TOG | Crowtree

    This bus costing is for a 12 seater instead of the 21 seater. If anyone is serious about this then they will need to PM me. I had intended to fly but will look at organising this if we can get 8 people who're interested (without a trailer I see this as the maximum number for comfort). Cut off date will be the end of May if the numbers aren't sufficient.

    12 seater bus

    Travel Melbourne via Tumut via Sydney to Maryborough (route can be varied a little of course)
    Pick up Melbourne Thursday 6th Aug AM
    Drop off Melbourne Tuesday 11 Aug AM
    Total kilometres: approx 4200
    Total Cost inc GPS, Excess Reduction and GST: $1,595
    Fuel Costs: $1.55 per litre - 15 litres per 100km; approx $700
    Total Costs: Approx $2,300





    OK Boys and girls,

    It's on again. Back by popular demand, .DiscO !'s TOG LAN II. For this one we need some time for people to organise quitting their jobs [​IMG], relocating or working hard at earning the "Get out of house FREE card" [​IMG]. We have international travellers, inter-state party goers, even local loons [​IMG], so lets get the ball rolling. There has been talk of group bus travel all the way up the East coast so things are looking good for those who have travel issues. We have heavy vehicle drivers and talks of bus rental, so things are sounding pretty interesting to say the least [​IMG].

    Previous events: .DiscO !'s TOG LAN I

    .DiscO !'s TOG LAN II is:


    [​IMG] 7th, 8th, and 9th of August 2009. [​IMG]

    at the:

    WIDE BAY MOTEL AND CONFERENCE CENTRE, MARYBOROUGH QLD 4650.


    The server lists will include: CS:S, DOD:S, TF2, L4D, COD4, COD:WAW, UT3, UT2004, Far Cry, Trackmania, and of course the Peggle eXtreme Championships [​IMG]. Anyone is welcome to bring their own server and game list and tap into the core so all games and players are welcome at this epic event.

    All meals will be provided during the event including breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. We will be kicking off on Friday the 7th August until the afternoon of Sunday 9th August.

    The total cost for the 3 days per person will be $250.00. This includes all meals, accommodation, room hire, security and an extended trading licence on Saturday night. These are NO BYO events as I am a licenced venue and all alcoholic beverages will be sold over the bar. Licencing hours are until 12:00am, but with sufficient numbers I will apply for an extended licence on the Saturday night until 2:00am which must also include a security person on staff for the evening which is mandatory under the Liquor Licencing Law.

    Terms of attendance:

    1. Be nice to each other, think TOG AUP and all that.
    2. This is as much giving as it is receiving, lend a hand.
    3. TOG and/or the organisers including the building owner(s) are not responsible/liable for any loss or injury you might incur (unless covered by local laws). If someone steals or breaks your stuff then it's your problem. The police will be called to fix any disturbance.
    4. Photo I.D. will be copied with your Alias on arrival to be kept on file to ensure those invited are the only people attending the gaming environment for security purposes.
    5. People under the age of 18 will not be admitted into the Conference Centre due to the sale of and consumption of alcohol within the licensed venue.
    6. No objectionable material is allowed.
    7. We do not promote illegal activities.
    8. This is a private LAN, the numbers have been accounted and will be catered for only.
    9. Your attendance at the LAN is deemed acceptance of these terms.

    What you will need to bring:


    • Your best Rig :
      • The PC and Monitor
      • Keyboard & mouse
      • Other input device , microphone etc
      • Monitor cable

    This sounds awesome!!! Hicksy can you let Disco know that me and Sarge will apply for some leave for this, and will tentatively put our names down for it. Let me know if Disco requires deposit or anything.

    :)

    I'm trying to get there. Should be a great laugh. The wife thinks it's a bit excessive flying 14 hours for a weekend of gaming, but i've got plenty of wifey points due to entertaining the in-laws over Christmas.

    Flying from the UAE for a weekend of gaming and debauchery. Excessive, I think not! ;)
