10 years ago, I couldn't have dreamed that Relief LANs would raise over $20k for charities. I was ecstatic that we raised $550 for Black Saturday relief. We’ve done more, and become more than I ever imagined, and God has used us to show his church to people who otherwise may not have had that chance. We’ll won’t know the full impact of RL this side of heaven, but I know that seeds have been planted and nurtured at our LANs.

10 years is an incredible season of fruitfulness, and we had some ripper years where everything just fell into place, and running events was easy. Now though, it seems a struggle to get anything happening. I strongly believe there’s a season to all things, and God is pretty clearly saying the season of Relief LANs is over. With no succession plan revealing itself, Josh and I have made the tough, but necessary decision to close this season of Relief LANs.

We’d love to host one more LAN as a farewell. This won’t be in September, but possibly late 2019 or early 2020.
There are too many people to thank for their help since 2009, but everyone involved has been amazing.

Most importantly, thanks for being part of our community. A LAN sucks if no one comes. Relief LANs was and always will be about the people.

Love you all.

Barras
(and Josh)

GAME RECOMMENDATION!

Darwin Project is a new battle royale game from Scavengers Studio, with some nifty mechanics like tracking and a 'director' player. We'll have some games on the weekend as we raise funds for Kids Under Cover!

Darwin Project takes the battle royale genre up north, where an impending ice age has given rise to a twisted new reality show in which ten participants must fight to the death under the Show Director's gaze.
