VulcLAN History – More Than 15 Years in the Making

As we are celebrating 15 years of VulcLAN this year, I thought it would be appropriate to take a look back and see where we’ve come from. VulcLAN had it’s “official” beginning back in 2003, but it started a few years before that in the side room of a local computer shop – Dallmann Computers. That was a humble and glorious beginning for all of us back then.

The year was 2000, and Unreal Tournament had been on the store shelves for about a year when Jason Schneider, Dwayne Dallmann, Tia Heide (my wife) and I decided to get our computers together, find a spare 10-base 4-port (not switch – hub), and try out this network thing. We used the lunch room at Dallmann Computers, which was space rented from an embroidery shop, Threads ‘n Motion, from Jason’s dad, Pat Schneider...

VulcLAN 2017 Announced!!!! Save the Date!

Good Day All! While we have been working hard behind the scenes planning to make our 15th annual VulcLAN a fantastic event, there has been little mentioned on the VulcLAN site. My apologies. Here’s some good news.

VulcLAN 2017 is on March 16-19, 2017!!!

We will be back at the CRC and are making room for more people this year as the last couple of years at the lodge has been getting a little cramped. Please, PLEASE invite your friends as we will be having an Xbox One tournament again, some amazing prizes and of course, fantastic PC gaming at its finest.

We’ll sort out a seating map soon and have registration up as fast as we can. You’ve got two months to plan, save over-time and get shifts re-arranged so you can come for all four days of gaming fun...

Games for VulcLAN 2016

We have a ton of game possibilities for VulcLAN 2016 – including Teeworld, (New) Unreal Tournament, Call of Duty 4, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Halo 4 and many more. The problem is that we don’t have that much time to play them. We will have two “official” tournaments for big prizes and these tournaments will be Call of Duty 4 as well as League of Legends. Other tournaments that will go pretty quick are Teeworld and the new Unreal Tournament (Last Man Standing or similar). We will be running a separate Halo 4 tournament on Xbox One’s that will be available for play upstairs.

It will be a very busy year, and we hope to have a lot of prizes, fun and good times. Make sure to sign up, pick your seat and get ready to game in February this year.

I’d like to give a shout-out to Digita...
