Default ASUS RoG Convention Gets Date Change

From our front-page news:
Last Thursday, I posted about the upcoming ASUS Republic of Gamers convention, and already there is a major change. Due to scheduling issues, the convention has been pushed back from July 18 - 20 to August 8 - 10. Despite the change, we'll still be there with bells on.

For the uninformed, the Republic of Gamers convention is essentially one big LAN party, with hopes to bring in around 1,000 gamers. It takes place at the Hyatt Regency right in the heart of Dallas, Texas. The event will be BYOC and BYON (bring-your-own notebook). Food will cost, but some should be free, with the rest being very cheap.

In addition to the LAN party itself will be a few workshops, one handled by Kyle Bennett of Hard|OCP. Overall, it should be quite an interesting time, and I for one am extremely interested to see how well this one goes. If it goes well, we can be sure to see it happen as an annual event.

Welcome to the Republic Of Gamers Convention, brought to you by ASUS and Intel. ROGCon will be heating up Dallas, Texas this August 8th to 10th by bringing old school LAN party fun to a whole new level. ROGCon will be open to the public and will feature a 24-hour BYOC where 700 gamers can show-off their skills.

Hm, well that nixes that! I'm in Houston presently, close enough that I could've made the original date. I'll be back to good old SA long before August rolls by though.
