LAN Party Attracts Gamers

In October, the chapter held its 4th Annual LAN Party at The Pointe at Rising View, Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska. According to the event coordinator, Staff Sgt. Cameron D. Smith, USAF, chapter assistant lead Young AFCEAN, The Pointe was an excellent venue for this event, providing separate rooms for console gamers/multiple users where they could share (split screen) from the same equipment along with a main gaming area for individual PC gamers. Sgt. Cameron pointed out that unlike previous LAN parties, the chapter supplied the majority of the prizes for this event with some coming as donations from the chapter board of directors and the businesses they represent. The other difference is that the food was supplied by the chapter along with donations from Eileen's Colossal Cookies to facilitate gamers staying at the gaming location. Sgt. Cameron added that the next LAN Party may occur next fall, and he considered this event an overwhelming success.
