It is my great pleasure to announce a UT2004 LAN to be held in Dundee, Scotland. It will take place between the 12th and 14th of August at Caird Hall, the premiere venue in Dundee...
The tournament is sponsored by Intel, Bigfoot Networks and Artisan Gaming with more to be announced. The fantastic Jee Network are hosting the tournament, you can find the link below where you can sign up and read news updates.
There will be 20 high-spec machines, so there is no need to worry about lugging equipment to the venue. All you need to bring are your peripherals and config files. The tournament will take place alongside Dare ProtoPlay 2011 - a large games industry event where teams compete to design a game in just 6 weeks, with the winner being judged by the public and some industry VIPs for large prizes and potential jobs in the industry.
The focus of the 3 days will be on a 1on1 DM tournament but I am happy to organise some 2on2 and 4on4 if people are interested. Signups are now open to everyone via JeeSports (see below) but expect more information to be released shortly!
This is a great chance for the UT2004 community to meet up and put a face to those names you've played with for so long. It's also a chance for a fantastic competitive community to test their skills in a LAN arena once again.

I recommend people investigate their travel arrangements now, to avoid paying higher costs later on. You can fly to any airport in the UK and travel by train from there. The easiest route would be flying to Edinburgh or Glasgow airports and then taking a train directly to Dundee itself (1 hour). It is then a 5 minute walk to the venue. There are various hotels in Dundee, I would recommend booking a room (around £50) and sharing the cost between several people.

There has been a lot of discussion on UnrealNorth about sharing rooms to cut down costs etc, I'd advise people to have a read through the comments there for further info.
