    PG LANS Attended

    This particular event was our toughest one... It wasn't just the move to a different house in a different city; Hurricane Harvey hit Rockport with a vengeance just prior to the LAN. The damage done to our house was significant, with almost 2" of water downstairs, shingles blown off and sheetrock missing all over the place. Jordan's house also got smacked hard; he ended up with almost 12" of water for at least a week, and then two months living elsewhere while he did repairs.

    Despite the setbacks, and inspired by how hard both the Rockport and Houston communities were working to rebuild, we were determined to pull off our first LAN event on the Texas Coast. We had 3" of snow on opening day (Friday), then plenty of sunshine Saturday and Sunday. It was as close to perfect weather as you can get.

    Everything went well; no breakers were tripped (most likely due to the fact that we replaced/upgraded the main service panel), the tournaments were flawless (Jordan put several thousand $$$ into new equipment), and finally the games were so much fun (we added PUBG this year).

    We stayed on schedule throughout the event, despite the fact that most of our supplies were coming from Austin as well as Houston. From breakfast being served on time (Gina) to appetizers out at exactly 1:30am, we nailed it. This meant getting up at 6am to clean and cook, then going to bed around 2am after cooking and cleaning again. A lot of hard work, but it always pays off.
    Huge thanks to everybody that helped out before, during and after the event.

    Jason, Jordan and Gina Powers
