Its that time of year again folks, time we raked in all that delicious, delicious money and run away with it and use it for the betterment of the society. Buying membership is real easy just go to: http://www.lsu.co.uk/society/computer/ and there should be a button, if there isn't a button try signing in.

Once that is done go to the membership registration thread and follow these handy instructions: http://lsucs.org.uk/threads/what-do-you-post-here.10355/ and then we activate your forum account and you can enjoy the drama (or silence, there's really only two options on here).

Freshers' LAN is first LAN of the year and normally the biggest! It takes place at the end of October in the James France Exhibition Hall.

Tickets are free for LSUCS members, so make sure you get your membership here:http://www.lsu.co.uk/society/computer/, meanwhile non-member tickets are £16, so getting membership is a really great deal. Tickets will go on sale after the Activities Bazaar on the 4th October.

Tournaments will run over the duration of the weekend, both on and off computers, with great prizes handed out at the end, along with a raffle that all LAN ticket holders are entered automatically. And if that's not enough, we head down to the Amber Rooms for a Post-LAN dinner to unwind.

A LAN Van will be available to book, which will collect your PC from halls or houses in the Loughborough area on the Friday before the event, and then dropped off after the LAN ends.

TL;DR

LAN is...

Come along to this years freshers laser quest! This event is always popular as we head over to Leicester for our anual laser quest fun. Laser quest will officially start at 9pm, and we have the entire arena to ourselves, however those wanting to catch the bus can meet committee at two different times to get into Leicester:​

If you want steak in the spoons in Leicester, then be outside McDonalds (in the square in town) at 17:50 ready to catch the 18:15 bus to Leicester from baxter gate stop.

If you don't want steak and just want laser quest, be at McDonalds at 19:45 ready to catch the 20:07 bus to Leicester from baxter gate stop.

Tickets now available on the stash site: http://stash.lsucs.org.uk/events/. Remember, this doesn't include bus fare, which is around £6 for a return ticket.

The Rules:
Strokes:

Pitcher = 4
Pitcher and an additional shot =5

The aim is to drink equal or above to make par for each Hole. You can add up stroke to make a total.

We will once again descend upon the Village Bar for our first Console Night of the year! Entry is free, we provide all the equipment and its a completely private venue. The bar will be open and hot food is available as well. We'll have a variety of consoles, old and new, with a bunch of different games ready to go. If you want to bring your own games then feel free, we'll be sure to have some labelling system to avoid confusion.

Then after a few hours chilling out and playing some games, we'll head out to FND for an amazing LSUCS night out.
