It's that time of year again! We hope you've all been having a great summer, but it's time for it to get even better! Nearly a year since our first ever summer LAN, Returners' LAN will be on the 30th and 31st of August. Summer LANs are a smaller event, only lasting two days, and hosting a smaller set of events. There will be no quiz or official food order, and a smaller tuck shop. There will not be an official tournament ran, although game servers will be available upon request.

For those that remember Sauna-LAN 40.5, you'll be happy to know that this year's Summer LAN will be hosted in James France. Yes I will organise air conditioning.

LAN Van will be running as usual, however if there is a high demand, some PCs may need to be collected late Friday night.

Sleeping rooms will be available as normal for those that can't manage two day LANs without sleep.

Another change is that this year non-members will be able to attend.
Tickets will be free...

i know its short notice and that there are actually some other things on on friday that some other people are going to. but if people are interested then please say.

There was talk about a place next the phantom (i've forgotten what its called) but feel free to suggest anything.

Because there is a committee meeting at 5 the earliest we could really do would be 7:30 in town i would imagine, but we can try to get a table somewhere for about 8 i guess

Its that time again, time to drink way too much and watch me stumble home. yay! fun for all!

The course is the same as last year, attire is for golf so look good!

In terms of scoring, each pub will be assigned a par from 3-5 with each drink scoring the following;

The Rules:
Strokes:
Shot = 2
Single+Mixer or VS or Bottle of Beer = 3
Double+Mixer or Pint = 4
Pitcher = 5

Penalties (number of strokes added to score):
Spill = 1
Falling Over or Missing a hole = 2
Being refused a drink = 3
Cheating = 5
Throwing Up = 10

What to do:
Buy a drink (or multiple drinks) at each pub, your aim is to drink the same or higher stroke rate that the pub has been designated.

The score is calculated by:
SCORE = PAR - STROKE OF DRINK(S) + STROKE OF PENALTIES

Therefore if the par for the pub is 3, and you drink a single+mixer and do not get any penalties then
SCORE = 3 - 3 + 0 = 0
However if you were to only pick a shot at this pub and also split some
SCORE = 3 - 2 + 1 = 2
Or ideally if you picked a...
