Thank you for an amazing PDXLAN!

I wanted to awake from my slumber and deleriously write a thank you to everyone who came to PDXLAN this weekend.

Over 80% of the attendees that came said that the social aspect of the event is what they like the most, and I agree – it is the community that makes PDXLAN what it is, and all of you are part of that. I can’t thank you enough for the outpouring of love you’ve given to Demented and me. I counted a number of stories this weekend of gamers helping gamers. I saw gamers pass prizes to those most in need of upgrades, lending a helping hand to one another to help carry in gear, and some of you even made cards ands left messages for Demented and I. It all meant so much to be part of the community. Thank you for your part in that.

Attendees at PDXLAN Fall 2022 OBLITERATED the charity goal of $40,000 for breast cancer by raising $61,300 for the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation. This is a new record for the most raised at a single PDXLAN, and this wasn’t even our largest attended event! I can not wait to share the good news with the TNBC Foundation and thank them for all that they do for those women with TNBC.
A massive thank you goes to the Sponsors of the event. It was their prizes that helped raise so much money for such a good cause. Their contributions and love for the event was felt by all of us.

Perhaps the largest thank you goes to my PDXLAN Staff. While I plan the event in the months leading up to the weekend, it is them that executes that plan and volunteers their time and energy into helping run PDXLAN. I might be bias, but Staff are my favorite group at PDXLAN 🙂 <3

This event was especially hard on me by not having Demented at the event. I found myself home-sick for her starting the night I left for the LAN (Tuesday) and just really looking forward to getting home to her last night. I want to thank the staff and a number of attendees for helping me get through this weekend despite being down. It’s the human connection that really makes PDXLAN unique, and this weekend I felt that love directed at Demented and me. Thank you.

Much love, and I look forward to the next event,

Matt “Vector” Conwell

Intel to sponsor PDXLAN Fall 2022!

 PDXLAN is excited to announce that Intel will be sponsoring the Fall 2022 event. 

Two very new and exciting things will be at PDXLAN from Intel. The just released 13th gen processors, and the all new ARC 750 and ARC 770. 

Intel will be proving 15 processors, four ARC GPU’s, and some really really cool special ARC lighted mouse mats. We will be displaying the new ARC GPU’s near Vector’s station – these GPU’s are equivelent in speed to a 3060 Ti / 3070. 

Lastly, Intel is providing the PDXLAN Staff with two NUC Laptops for the Help desk and Picture taking stations. These are super thin, light, come by and check it out!

Over the past 19.5 years, Intel has been a part of every PDXLAN – which in our opinion shows just how committed they are to the PDXLAN community. Thank you Intel for the amazing prizes!

When founder Matt “Vector” Conwell was asked about the importance of prizes at PDXLAN, he replied “The prizes at PDXLAN are some of the best in the industry – and we don’t just give them out for tournaments – we also believe in distributing them in a way where all of the gamers have a chance at winning cool hardware from sponsors like Viper Gaming. It’s just one way that makes PDXLAN unique – that its for the casual  pc-gamer.” 

“Viper Gaming has been part of PDXLAN for nearly 20 years – and in my opinion it shows their genuine love for the community” 

Massive thanks to Viper Gaming for the sponsorship!
