What usually happens at the events? What should I expect?
LANSE is a very social LAN, and there are several group games & outings.

Gaming usually goes like this:

Friday night: Get everything installed & setup. No organised games, fairly organic gaming.
Saturday: 11:00 > 23:00 organised all-in games - you are expected to play in all games
Saturday: 23:00 > ???? Whatever - including Real card games, RTS etc
Sunday: 11:00 > 14:00 Organised games
Sunday: 14:00 > 16:00 Typically RTS

Food:
Breakfast - either at the local pub, or I will get Tony (the burger van man) to come over and cook up outside the venue.
Friday Dinner - Local Fish 'n chip shop, Noodle Bar or Pizza
Saturday Dinner - Group outing to local Curry Centre, or somewhere else.
