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!

First PDXLAN was PDXLAN 18, it started after a good friend of mine told me about the LAN that his late brother took him to a few times (6 & 8) and it was a goal to go there as a group to honor him.

Have been coming when I can since then and don't plan on stopping.

PDXLAN 8 was my first. I somehow stumbled across the forums looking for local used parts for sale, it was something like 2-3 weeks before the LAN and someone was selling their ticket on the cheap. I figured why not check out what these crazy people are up too. Was hooked (and awestruck) as soon as I walked through the door :D
