History

The House of LAN has a rich history of events dating back to the late 1990's. Originally founded and organized by Mitch "Medic" Kohlbecker, the first offical House of LAN was held in April, 2002. Since that time we've had an annual event which has been organized by various indidviduals including Zach "Zeek" Lawson, Charlie "Kane" Parker, and Nicholas "neptune" Gold.

The LAN has taken place at a number of different venues over the years, most notably enjoying a long stint at the Rancho Bernardo Holiday Inn.

The House of LAN came about as an informal congregation for a number of onling gaming clans with their roots in games such as Doom, Quake, Counter-Strike, Dark Age of Camelot, and World of Warcraft. Various members of XP, DN, |23|, anti, and [bSa] (amongst others) all came together through a central gaming server graciously hosted by XP-Enigma, the legendary GotRice!?

Outside of the House of LAN, a number of localized LAN Parties were organized and held by some of these groups through the years. Here are just a few that we know about.
