Lan Gaming – Garden Route has been running Lans on a regular basis for the last 6 years. The aim of Lan Gaming is to promote and support pc and console gaming in the Garden Route by staging regular Lans at the George civic centre where we create a safe environment for gamers to compete and socialise.
All the proceeds from these events gets ploughed back into improving the gaming experience for the gamers themselves and the members of the Lan Gaming team are all volunteers and do not benefit financially at all.
The venue is professionally set up so that each gamer has a lan access point and power point as well as access to the internet at every Lan. A tuck shop is set up for each Lan and burgers are made on site to keep the gamers well fed.
The Lan Gaming team is made up of 8 volunteers who dedicate their time and IT expertise to ensure that each Lan runs smoothly and that the gamers have the best gaming experience we have to offer. Tech support (the ‘medics’) is available at each Lan assisting the gamers with pc issues.
We would like to see the Lans develop to the point where sponsors can set up mini expos at the Lans where they are able to advertise, sell and demonstrate their goods to the gamers.
