The setup day was a long winded one but we got there in the end and finally got everything setup. Now we’re just waiting for that tannoy announcement to let us know that the exhibition hall is now open to the gamers, the minute hand slowly moves into place and the barriers are moved out of place.

It’s nice to get the usual warm reception even at the winter LAN, especially when the cold weather can make people a little more subdued and miserable. The gamers however never fail to enjoy themselves no matter what the climate at LAN. Our competitions are underway and the gamers are battling it out for the top spot on both the Gigabyte PC Quick Build competition and the BenQ Grab A Grand.

We’ve lots of prizes to give away including a BenQ  gaming monitor and an array of other swag including our limited edition CCL i47 t-shirt.

I’ve been running around with my camera snapping pictures and interviewing the other exhibitors so I’ll be getting as much content live as I can and hopefully covering some of the tournaments as to try and give our readers a better understanding of what this event is all about and why so many people love it so much.

So far I’ve managed to edit and publish a video from the Asus booth and you can check that out here.

Other videos to follow shortly so make sure you follow our Facebook and YouTube posts to keep up to speed on whats going on at the Winter LAN i47.
