Reaper LAN

Dearest people of Pretoria and surrounding areas, from 31 January until 2 February, Silver Valke Rugby Club will be all about the gaming as Reaper LAN takes over. The event can hold 230 people - register now to secure your spot and get the preferred price of R150. You can also rock up at the event without registering, but there may not be space for you and you will have to fork over R200.

As for the event, it's a LAN. That means some speedy internet, plenty of gaming with others, and probably a fair amount of file sharing, too. You guys know what to expect with a LAN, don't you? So sign up if you're in the area and go play well with others.
