You know I'm in.

The only way I don't show up is if work says no to my vacation days. Odds on that are slim though.

I am going to try and attend. I looked at the FAQ and I don't see a size limit on the monitor. What width do we have on the tables?

FWIW, I have no problems with my 3007wfp on this setup. If you are brining anything bigger, please just let us know and we can try to accomodate that.

MADLan 2007 is still a few months away but we are already over half capacity with several of the pre-pay’s rolling in! I would just like to remind everyone that your seat is not secure until you pre-pay. So if we end up with a waiting list and someone on that list pre-pays before you…you do run the risk of getting bumped down! Not to mention that you save $10 by pre-paying, so it’s a good idea anyway!

We have some new developments that everyone should be aware of:

Meal tickets are being sold. One meal ticket will be $7 and can be bought in advance through paypal. The paypal button can be found on our website at www.madlan.net The meal ticket will cover two meals (one per day)

Meal 1: Up to 3 hot dogs, some side items (like chips/cookies/whatever we get), and up to 2 can/bottle drinks.
Meal 2: Up to 3 slices of pizza and up to 2 can/bottle drinks

You can pre-pay for your meal tickets at www.madlan.net on the front page. There is a designated paypal button under the registration numbers!

The Royal Scot also has food and there are restaurants and fast food places around to accommodate your other meals. Royal Scot food prices and menu can be found in the forums in the Event Related section.

We will order food based on the number of pre-pays for meal tickets. We will over order to accommodate a small number of people wishing to buy meal tickets at the event. Once we sell out of the extra tickets at the event…no more meal tickets can be purchased. If there is extra food, the people who have purchased meal tickets will be invited to come up and get seconds.


Tournament updates:
Originally posted was that the Counter Strike Source was going to be a 3v3 Pistols only and that we were going to have a Battlefield 2 tournament.

THESE HAVE BOTH BEEN CHANGED.
Due to popular demand and sponsor choices the tournament list is as follows:


Tournaments to be played:
Counter-Strike: 5v5
Battlefield 2142 6v6 Fast Assault sponsored by RealWorldBenchmarks and Coolermaster!
A GIANT TrackMania Tournament, so brush up your skillz! (www.trackmania.com to get the game, it is free!)

Console Tournaments: If you wish to only play in the console tournaments and not take part in the rest of the event, admission will be $10 per tournament; to be paid upon admission to the event.
Halo 3 2v2
Mario Kart Double Dash 1v1v1v1

More info can be found in the forums on all of these tournaments.

Several sponsors have jumped on board including:
SteelSeries
Computer Power Users
CoolerMaster and RealWorldBenchmarks
Ideazon
Cenatek
Tagan
And Mushkin

More and more sponsors are signing up every day!

We have added some tournament details in the forums so be sure to check those out. We also created a section for people who are looking for or can give rides, so feel free to take advantage of that.

If anyone would like to help with set-up or tear down: We will be setting up the event Thursday November 15th and Friday November 16th. The most help will be needed on the 15th though. Tear down will occur immediately after event end. All of those people that help with set up will be rewarded as follows: One prize will be set aside and that prize will be raffled off to those people that participated in setup on Thursday or Friday. If you participate in setup both day you will be allowed 2 entries into the raffle. You must attend setup for at least 2 hours to be awarded your raffle entry. Your odds vary by the amount of people that show up for setup. This same type of procedure will apply for clean up after the event. If you have any questions or would like to volunteer ahead of time for setup/cleanup please e-mail me at meganschoenherr@madlan.net

Please direct any questions to meganschoenherr@madlan.net

Thank you all for your time and we'll see you at MADLan 2007!
