Hey guys! I know it might be odd for some of you for a newbie to the events to start this thread, but fresh eyes and all that :)

The good

- The introduction from Squeek, you know your stuff dude and was nice to be given a tour!
- The venue. Perfect for a LAN event in terms of space, layout etc.
- The banter. I enjoyed meeting all of you, and had a right laugh.
- Artemis. Amazing fun, definitely highlight of the LAN for me. Long may it continue.

The bad

- Network issues. But these are to be expected sometimes. Staff sorted it out ASAP so GG!
- The weather. Rain makes everything less fun.
- The burger I had. Was still raw in the middle. Sad times
- The music. Some of it, not all of it.

The Ugly

- Me on Sunday morning after too many Jagers
- The slug that decided to join me and Marbobs in bed on Saturday morning
- The state of the ladies toilets. Not down to me and the 1 other lady that attended. I'm sure of that!

I had fun, I would love to attend again. Excited to see what ApacheLAN 16 has in store!

Thank you kindly gitsie for doing so.

With regard to the poor condition of the ladies toilets. Your fellow lady at the event. She kindly brought this to my attention. Of course being nothing that either of you have done. I brought this to the attention of the venue owners. They mentioned this being down to the venue being in use earlier in the week through till Thursday evening. With being good Friday and when we arrived for setup. The usual levels of cleaning were sadly not possible. They have mentioned how sorry they were about this and that it won't be repeated. Apache Lan having used the venue a few times and this having not happened before. So sorry that this occurred.

True yeah, rain always being a kicker for anything, well said.

True yes, the music certainly had some question areas. Getting more people involved with this to resolve this.

Something else that was brought to my attention. This being sadly down to pure and simple forgetfulness and nothing more. A couple of activities that were planned to involve everyone as good ice breakers and sadly weren't. This not meaning to reflect badly. This simply being open and honest. There was a music clips quiz planned. The person in charge of this, sadly slipped mind to do even though was ready to go really. Cards Against Humanity I myself brought along and sadly forgot to mention, this being my bad and no one else, shocking, I know!

Sound system wise, the venue itself does actually have a better sound system than the Plan B sound system that was used. The venue sound system having a microphone for making any announcements etc. How ever couldn't be used as all plug sockets were being used and wanting to keep things safe rather than over loading things. With the amount of power that a PA sound system amp that the venue has and would have used.

I am utterly gutted that I missed this event, it is the first event in the whole 10 years of Apache Lans that I have missed and by the sound of it was a good one. I will be satisfying my LAN desires soon enough but really can't wait for LANXVI.

Technically Lanparty Survival is an ApacheLAN event, so I could call it ApacheLANS 15.1, or 15 v.2
