Good to know things about the event

The event is organized by Skynett ry in cooperation with Trailblazers. The non profit organization Skynett has made over 20 LAN-parties in Parikkala and Lappeenranta. The organization also provides event services as a product.

Skynett Langames -events are for those gaming enthusiasts, who want to experience multiple days in an awesome LAN-party, all the while gaming, competing and having tons of fun. The popularity of these events is based on their social nature. For example you can have chat with your opponent and shake their hand after a tight match, or generally hang around having fun with your friends. The attendees bring their own gaming equipment (pc or console)

Bringing alcohol or other intoxicants to the event’s arena and common areas is strictly prohibited!

Computer place and electricity

  • VIP space is 100 cm wide and LAN space is 90 cm. We recommend bringing extra decor on the table in good taste and as long as it doesn’t cause danger. Make it personal!
  • Remember to bring a joint box, because we reserve one socket / place
  • Electrical power limit / place is 350 W. This has been measured by the average consumption of a gaming computer. You probably won’t need special arrangements even with a 700 W power source, just don’t bring unnecessary appliances.
  • If you have special needs concerning electricity, contact us and we will figure out what we can do about it.

 

Internet

One internet socket is reserved per computer place. Remember to bring a long CAT-5/6 net cable with a RJ45 connector and a functional network interface card. Skynett recommends a 10 m. cable

 

Sleeping and hygiene

Holiday Club Saimaa has hotel rooms and cottages to ensure the most comfortable stay. You can book them on the Holiday Clubs web page. They wanted to show their support for our event, so you even get a discount when buying a LAN-ticket!
