Sacramento LANFest 2009 – food, friends and lots of FUN!

I remember attending my first LAN Party back in the mid-90s – a small group of us; maybe 8 to 10 people at a friend’s house. We played Quake 2 for about 10 hours… It wasn’t so much the game-time that got us together – but it was the food, the friendships and the competition that pumped us up!

This past weekend, I attended Intel’s Sacramento LANFest in Folsom, CA. Over 300 gamers attended to play over a dozen games! Everything from Plants vs. Zombies to full-blown Left 4 Dead! (what’s with this Zombie infatuation lately?!?)

Here is a quick video so you can see some of the fun!

I have to give a big shout-out to the Folsom RIGG (Recreational Intel Gaming Group) – these guys put their life aside for the weekend. Dealing with game servers, power requirements, network cabling – and a bunch of gaming guys can be nerve-racking! $20k in prizes were given out! 6 Extreme Edition CPUs, a gaming laptop & PC, and tons of other gaming garb!

You can meet the RIGG members in the gaming community too!
