---EDIT---

 

Hey Guys!
Unfortunately, March 16th and March 23rd just don't look like they are going to work. 
 
A little more detail:
- We contacted many great venues. Some were available during those dates and things looked very promising.
- One of the venues really impressed us and was our number one selection. The prices appeared to be workable. 
- After recieveing the quotes from their exclusive AV company, it no longer looks doable. For reference, the AV would have cost 7 times more than our last event. It would have blown our budget.
 
So what's next?
- We are planning on an even larger upcoming event with $15,000 in prizing. We will have the venue and pricing secured before posting an interest thread this time :) 
- We are working with eSportsCanada to setup MONTHLY online tournaments. We hope our first event will be in March. More news to come.
 
 
To say sorry...
- We know many of you were as excited about this possible event as we were. We put a lot of work into it already and it always sucks when you have to come to terms with it not coming to frutition (for now). So, we will be randomly giving out $1,500 (15 x $100) in paypal prizes to people who voted in the poll in this thread before the time of this post. We are just doing the DB pull now. Winners will be announced shortly.
 
 
Sorry again guys. Our next one will be bigger and better than ever.
 
------------------------------------

I would honestly think mid february be a better date for the lan as there is a huge lan in montreal on march 1st/2nd/3rd for CS:GO/LoL/TF2/HoN and I think the dates will be too weird to have it mid march


regardless I'll be there!
