** IMPORTANT NOTIFICATION ** VECTOR LAN 4 *
We are sorry to inform you that VectorLAN 4 in April will need moved to June 6th-8th.
In PDXLAN's 12 year history this has never happened, but there is a first time for everything. What happened is We are certain we told the hotel to book the venue last July, but the hotel did not reserve the date and booked it to another client. This client was issued a contract which means it can not be broken.
If you have booked tickets and you can NOT make the date swap, then we will fully refund your admission. If you CAN still make it and you have paid, we already have your information reserved, and you are good to go.
For every ticket booked after this announcement, we are reducing the cost of the event by $10.00 per seat. This will make VectorLAN $45.00+$2.00 - The Hotel has graciously offered us a nice discount for the mus-communication, and we are passing it on to you. For those that have already paid, you will get FOUR tickets for liquor at the LAN instead of just two, because you did pay $10.00 more.
Jessica and I apologize to everyone affected by this. If you have questions about this please TRY to hold them until after PDXLAN 23. It's an extremely difficult week to tackle anything but the event this weekend.
Thank you all! <3 Vector.
PDXLAN would like to welcome Fractal Design as a gold sponsor of PDXLAN 23. Fractal Design is sending a TON of cases to PDXLAN attendees along with some great power supplies and other goodies. Fractal Design is giving PDXLAN over $5,000 in prizes! More about Fractal Design below:
"Without a doubt, computers are more than just technology - they have become an integral part of our lives. Computers do more than make living easier, they often define the functionality and design of our homes, our offices and ourselves. The products we choose represent how we want to describe the world around us and how we want others to perceive us. Many of us are drawn to designs from Scandinavia, which are organized, clean and functional while remaining stylish, sleek and elegant. We like these designs because they harmonize with our surroundings and become nearly transparent. Brands like Georg Jensen, Bang Olufsen, Skagen Watches and Ikea are just a few that represent this Scandinavian style and efficiency. In the world of computer components, there is only one name you should know, Fractal Design."
If you are coming to PDXLAN 23 this schedule is the thing to bookmark! Bookmark it on your phone so you can access it while you are not at the LAN. The staff will be making adjustments to the schedule if something happens to need moving. As always, if you have questions at the event - check with the help desk before asking Vector or Demented. They are likely to be insane by Friday.

We hope you were able to get into the Titanfall beta this past week! The beta seems to have gone live, and PDXLAN is PUMPED about it. If you haven't heard, PDXLAN and Origin have teamed up to give each PDXLAN 23 attendee 1 copy of Titanfall for donating just $20.00 or above to the Phil Scholz Foundation. The codes we give out will be good upon release of the game.
