The Largest LAN Party In Saskatchewan
Taking up over 14,000 square feet, SKLAN is the be-all and end-all of gaming events in Saskatchewan. With 200 PC seats available, a 33 table Warhammer 40K ITC Major* Tournament, and Super Smash Brothers 4 tournament, this is one event you aren’t going to want to miss.
SKL eSports is proud to partner with Airline Hotels to present SKLAN August 25th, 2018 at 12PM until August 26th, 2018 at 12PM at the Travelodge Hotel in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
PC LAN Party
A LAN party is something you have to experience to understand. If you’ve ever had a friend over to play a bit of Starcraft, or even just played split screen Mario Kart, you have a bit of an idea what to expect. 200 PC gamers in one room to play some of the biggest games is a sight to behold. Hearing the exasperated yell down the row from the person you just fragged, gathering behind the last couple people standing in an elimination game, or just finding new people to squad with make LAN parties one of the best parts of PC gaming.
Taking place in the Galaxy room of Travelodge Saskatoon, the party starts at 12PM August 25th, 2018. SKL will be on hand to organize tournaments throughout the night. Organized tournaments aren’t your thing? No problem, our connected Discord server will serve as a group finder to find like-minded people at the LAN to squad with, challenge to SC2 matches or even set the best minesweeper score with.
Early bird registration ($30) runs from now until August 19th, 2018 so get your tickets now!
