I'd say the average age was in your 20s. There were people as old as (looked to me) 35-45, and people as young as like 10 though. Many people in their low to mid 20s and late teens.

Is it true there was a couple there on their honeymoon? There was an article in the Montreal Gazette about it via the CanWest news service.

Dunno about that, but there was "Superman", who proposed to his girlfriend on stage during the closing ceremonies

I had an amazing time there...didn't really get around to visiting you or the other booths much Linus, sorry.

Man so much fun though...i have lots of crappy pics, but they are more of my group than the event though...i'll have to try sorting a bit & posting some.

Wow. I'm sorry I missed that at the closing ceremonies. Dude... Can you imagine your kids asking how you proposed and you having to say you did it at a LAN party... That's too much for me.

What would be even more insane is if their wedding was a huge WoW LAN Party and the wedding party dressed up as WoW characters. That would be too much.
