This is the weekend for gaming junkies to congregate at the Birmingham-Jefferson County Convention Center… the Sniperwatch Gaming Clan is hosting the SniperWatch LAN Party 2.0 for 24 hours beginning at 8am on Saturday, October 22. The group concentrates on online gaming. They play Red Faction, Half-Life 2, Counter-Strike Source, BattleField Vietnam, Desert Combat and Battlefield 2.
500 slots are available this year with over 100 pre-registered individuals as of this morning. Last year they had 110 participants. Cost to play is $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Location of the LAN Party is the East Exhibition Hall #1.
The membership on the website is 1,010 (as of today). One posting on the site indicates a member from Canada is driving down to participate this weekend – imagine that!
