What: From theMidwestLAN.com...
MidWestLAN was started in 2003 by a few friends, and a passion for LAN gaming. They went on to run in their first season, 4 very well received events with everyone except one selling completely out with a waiting list to get in. As the LAN party evolved the original team stayed dedicated on their goal of focusing on the gamer and not on their own needs which separated themselves from many of the early 2000-era LANs. The original 5 events saw monumental growth, as they went from 20 person events to the 100+ person LANs MWL is known for today.
After MWL5 the original staff elected to step aside to pursue other interests. However, the Empire Gamers LAN team stepped up and, with the same dedication towards providing high quality LAN events that appeal to all types of gamers, continues operating MidWestLAN to this very day. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or an aspiring pro you can bet there will be something for you at MidWestLAN.

How: MidwestLAN has graciously invited us to take part in this year's event, offering us a table to help spread the word, as well as donate 50% of the entry fees from their League of Legends tournament and 10% of t-shirt sales to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. Our volunteer needs for this event will be a minimum of two people for each shift. Volunteers will be provided one badge for the tenure of their volunteered time and must return it at the end of your shift. If you want to enjoy the event after your scheduled shift, consider supporting the convention by purchasing a badge as they are kind enough to host us at no cost to the hospital. Please see the MKE/MAD forums to register to volunteer!
