The BoxHeads, one of the largest LAN organizations in Michigan, which attracts visitors from all over the Midwest and Canada, had held its first LAN event for the year.

A great deal of prizes were given away, and Phoronix had also sponsored a unique computer modding competition. Team ATI was also out in force at the event. While the event was largely a success, there were some damaging power issues.
