Re: When did you join PDX & why?

I had first heard about PDXLAN from several friends in Bend. My buddy Ian kept telling me that I had to go. At first, I was hesitant, I always assumed big LAN events such as PDXLAN were full of Pro Gamers competing against one another. After a lot of back and forth, I decided to go. PDXLAN 11 was my 1st LAN. I very quickly realized that I was wrong about PDXLAN and found that it is all about the community rather than massive competitions. Fast forward to last November, I've been consistently going to every PDXLAN since 11 and continue to go because of the community. The charity work we do has only made me want to promote the PDXLAN community more with those around. As Trumby mentioned, we started [GoD] (Greenfield of Donuts) as a group for the Alienware L4D2 tournament and after a few LANs decided to make it an official group. Anyway, I love this community and am so excited to see where it goes. See you all in November!
