Ones with your own friends I would guess

Haha but if you mean large organized ones, take a look at the list in this section of the forum. Where are you located, because most are on the West coast of Canada? Or does it matter to you where they are in Canada?

Get some of your friends together and hold your own.while the big ones are definitely something to check out , I much prefer smaller ones , where I can control who's there.(attend a few big ones , you'll understand this)

i wish there was more going on in the GTA. i'm in oshawa and i've never found an event worth attending... and most of my friends don't even understand why i'm so enthusiastic about computers, they're xbox360 gamers who don't even use the online features of the console.

I know how you feel! Being from Oshawa myself... I know people around here really love their 360's

as i have lanned with braineater more times then i can count i'd have to agree with jon_di2 and him that home lans are more gooder. fragapolooza should definetly be checked out ... simply huge but home lans carry far less behavioural protocols if you know what i am saying.


if you goto Fraga i hope they are still doing their Rock/Paper/Scissors tourney. Golden.

we brought a vert keg (half) of Wild Rose Wred Wheat to our last one. Good Calgary microbrewery. shoulda got a full one ... we dusted it by 1:30 friday night. *slurp*.

lans ftw!!
