Well I finally got it finished :D A great walk down memory lane for me. Not so many people from the first few events still left now... Skavorn was at the first one, as ABCMoxon, but we don't see him about now. Mincemeat I guess is perhaps the longest standing LANner. Which was your first one Mince? I know you were at L4, the overnighter in Central London.

Anyway, for everyone else, have a look through the photo's and the write ups :) Enjoy!

Oh man - memories.... We should get a driving game back on the 'rota' of games played... I'm good at those. ;)

For those reading the early write ups - I was Judge before I cured my schizophrenia... :side:
Oh the write up links for 13, 14 and 15 don't work either :(

Oh yes...this brings back good memories. Yup L4 was my first (and one of the best).. wow. Time has gone so quickly. I have lost count of how many Lans I have been to.

Just to add: the best ever racing game I have had was at L4. Midtown madness with soo many people was simply amazing. :twisted: :lol:

One of the best sections of lanarchy for me is the Previous Events section.

I can take a look back in time at the great events and how the fun was captured at that moment... Well done to Mcbain for taking the trouble to take pictures and organise and post them online! :)
