CompSoc charity LAN in 091 Labs for Habitat for Humanity


Fresh from the NUI Galway CompSoc mailing list =) Charity LAN!

CompSoc are holding an epic LAN in the fantastic 091labs (http://091labs.com) who have generously / foolishly given us their home for the night. The bloodshed and battle will commence at 4pm on Saturday, the 31st of March.

There will be free pizza for all who attend to keep you pwning throughout the night and a tuck shop for all those who need MOAR sugar to fuel their EXTRA PWNAGE!!!!11! (etc.)

The event is in aid of Habitat for Humanity, who improve the living conditions in Africa substantially by building houses.

NUIG Bot Wars this Weekend


NUIG CompSoc’s annual event, BOT WARS, will be taking place this weekend. Starting at 10am in Áras na Mac Léinn and over the course of the two days there’ll be battling of killer robots, video games, Rock Band, films, a gaming night in Squareyes and a Lego NXT robot Design-Build-Code challenge suitable for both total beginners and master programmers alike!

There’ll be a Halo Tournament on the Saturday morning with a Modern Warfare 2 tournament in the afternoon. On the Saturday there’ll also be free pizza to all attendees. For the keen roboteers, we’ll be doing the Lego robot Design-Build-Code all day Saturday and you can drop in and out of the DBC to go gaming if you like – it’s up to you!

On Saturday night they’ll be heading to Squareyes for some LAN gaming and afterwards hitting the town and having a good old fashioned Galway night out.

The next morning there’ll be the warmups for the main event, BOT WARS. Alongside that, there’ll be tournaments in Xbox games made by two CompSoc members. Then there will be battling of KILLER ROBOTS!

Both days there’ll be movies for those who want to chill out.

The event is open to the public and it’s only €5 for a whole weekend pass and just €2 if you’re attending AkumaKon.
