It looks like Spokane can put another annual event under it's belt. It was a great turn out at this years first ever GameFest. And if it is like other events that have started here the participation level will grow with each passing year. Nerds rule!
[Excerpt from Terabyte Triangle Newsletter] "The inaugural event, GameFest Spokane 2006 was pronounced a success. Gamers took over the Spokane Convention Center to compete against each other for prizes and bragging rights. With over 300 participants, the sponsors were happy. Businesses and organizations hosting booths were happy. Event speakers reported raptly attentive audiences. The participating gamers were glued to various screens. Even those who had attended Friday’s all night LAN party were in no hurry to leave Saturday morning. Prize winners seemed more interested in continued play than in the prizes themselves – and many of the prizes were quite nice indeed. The consensus was that there will definitely be a GameFest Spokane 2007."
