For those not familiar with the geek culture of yesteryear, Auckmageddon is a series of LAN/Computer Gaming events run in Auckland.

It has been 6 years since the last installment, A4 and now we've decided to drag the old girl out of retirement for the weekend of 27th- 29th August 2010
A5 will be the fifth LAN in the Auckmageddon series; like A3 and A4, it'll hold 500 people and be at the North Harbour Stadium in Albany.

The main Level 1 of the events center will be turned in to a giant LAN from lunchtime Friday till lunchtime Sunday. With gaming tournaments, spot prizes, ad-hoc gaming and generic silliness, it'll be a whole bunch of fun.
There'll be a chillout room upstairs with an R18 bar and Boosh.FM DJs for those that way inclined.

Tickets are on sale now for $85, checkout http://auckmageddon.com for more details.
Big thanks go to our sponsors: Cisco, Microsoft, Orcon, Vector, Demon Energy, Compulink, Blitz and Boosh.FM (http://boosh.fm)

Oh, there's also a Facebook event for you to join and invite your mates to: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=103444239696180

Awww. :(

I was trying to "spread the word" to what I'm guessing is our target audience. :)

We've let other Lan events on, I don't see why we can't have this one as well.

This is not spam. Advertising a locale computer event on a local computer forum is ok.

I'm pretty keen to come along :D

Who would I also contact about working along-side Auckmageddon with respect to advertising etc? I presume you're on the team there yourself?

Hey Man,

Your name is very familiar, from NZLUG or something many years ago? *shrug*

Anywho, yup I'm helping organise this fine event, flick me an email through the address listed in my profile.

Hi detonate,

PM'd you, but no reply yet. I included my email in case you can't respond (I think we've got a limit of 5 or 10 posts her before you can send PM's). Give me a buzz :)

And yes, I'm on the AuckLUG, but I'm pretty sure I unsubscribed from NZLUG (Can't remember why).

So did anyone actually attend?

The event is in the past I would think or is it still going on?

Any reports?
