Calling all gamers! Moraine Park Technical College’s fourth LAN party will take place Friday, Dec. 5, at the College’s Fond du Lac campus.


A Gears of War 2 tournament is planned, with sign-up from 3 to 4 p.m. on Dec. 5. Other games include Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Madden and Mario Cart.


The overall gaming party runs from 3 to 9 p.m. in the Cyber Center cafeteria, with console set-up beginning at 1 p.m. (LAN PCs will not be used at this party.) Participants can pay a $2 entry fee or bring two canned goods, with all proceeds going to the local food pantry.


Enter a raffle for a chance to win a Wii console, T-shirts, posters and other prizes. Tickets will be sold for $1 each, $5 for six or $10 for 15, which will also benefit the food pantry.


Sponsors of this LAN party are Game Crazy and Moraine Park’s IT Club.


Pre-registration isn’t required; sign up at the gaming stations the day of the event. Most of the games are suitable for families with the exception of the tournament game that contains violence, and others that have a mature content.
