Its almost LAN time again! We hope you've been having a good summer, but there's one thing that'll make it even better: LAN 52.5!!!

LAN will take place on the 22nd of August at midday, in James France. As a half LAN a few things are different, the event only spans two days and there'll be no quiz (probably a good thing :p), food order or main tournament, but game servers will be available on demand. LAN Van will be running, though with slightly reduced capacity, there will be a smaller tuckshop and sleeping rooms will be available as normal.

Tickets will go on sale next week, they will be free for members (no deposit necessary) and £5 for non-members, who are more than welcome to attend.

See y'all there.

So the time has come and it is here.
18 holes of fun and loads of alcohol.

We want everyone to make it around this course and the aim of the game is to make par or to drink more than required at each hole.

The Rules:
Weaker Shot eg corki's = 0.5
Shot = 1
Single+Mixer or VS or Bottle of Beer = 1
Double+Mixer or Pint = 2
Strong pint above 5.5 ABV = 3
Pitcher = 4
Pitcher and an additional shot =5

Failure to do the Hole in the correct amount of sips scores 0 for that hole.
Spilling any alcohol induces a -1 for that hole
Not getting surved cancles the Hole's Par and take away 2 from your total amount drank.
Throwing up takes away 5 from total amount drank.

Holes 1-9 starting at midday Saturday including a lunch stop.

With the meeting tomorrow committee will have a discussion about our terms, and other such stuff that needs updating (such as LAN rules and the LAN website). The fact that I found the wrong set of terms is enough reason for us to make sure they're properly drawn out and decided upon, and it makes sense for all this to be sorted ready for fresher's, as new people will be posting and we need to make sure they're treated properly, and they treat other people properly, as I know many people have little to no experience when it comes to forums. (Runescape forums don't count)

Here are the current terms (ty lukas, it's bad i didn't find the right ones)

and the one's that come with the website

ty and discuss!

edit: also here are LAN rules too
