And that’s a wrap, for now…

The 2015 Expo LAN is over, and boy was it a good one. We would like to thank every single person who attended, and an extra-special thanks to those who helped out with set-up and tear down. We would also like to take this chance to ask for your feedback about the LAN, what you liked, what you didn’t like, stuff you would like to see, yadda yadda. We have an anonymous survey here, or if you just wanna say something short and sweet feel free to hop on over to our facebook page.

Now for what you guys actually care about, the date for the next LAN! The next LAN party will be held……… November 20! Yes that’s right, you only have to wait a little over a month to get your next dose of LAN goodness. As usual, we will be posting reminders and such as the date nears, to keep an eye out!

One last bullet point to go through quick. As many of you have already heard, most of our current executive board will  be retiring at the end of this year due to graduation and other circumstances, so we are on the lookout for new execs! This is an awesome opportunity for anyone looking for a extra-curricular leadership position, so get involved the org and make a name for yourself! If you have any questions about the positions up for election, feel free to contact any of the current execs or yell at us on Facebook, which ever you prefer.

“Working for a better tomorrow isn’t just a one-time thing. The tomorrows keep coming.”



IT’S FINALLY HERE! Today marks the beginning of the first LAN of the 2015-2016 school year! As a reminder, anyone who helps us set up between 12pm and 4pm will be granted a prize ticket and early set-up, as well as an awesome opportunity to get involved PONG.

For those competitively inclined, you can see the tournament schedule, as well as register for said tournaments, here.

Now get over here and start playing some games!

Would you kindly?

First Meeting Today!

First off, thank you to everyone who stopped by the PONG booth at backyard bash! We had a huge amount of new sign-ups in that few hours, and we look forward to seeing all of you at future events! Speaking of which…

Our first official meeting is today! The meeting will take place in Ballroom B in the Memorial Student Center (right across from the Great Hall), and will cover org introductions, info about our LAN parties, how you can get involved, and most importantly we will be opening seating signup for the first LAN during the meeting. Make sure to bring your laptop so you can sign-up! Hope to see you all there!

If only I could be so grossly incandescent,

PONG Forums are back up!

The long battle is won, the evil bots defeated and the forums reclaimed for the good people of PONG. HALLELUJAH!

In all seriousness, the recent plague of bots and other undesirables have taken us for quite the ride, and we apologize for the multiple forum and website take-downs that ensued. Now that we’ve scrubbed out the server and beefed up security, we hope it won’t happen again. To that end however, we ask for the aid of all forum-goers; some bots are inevitable, but due to Stout’s policies even a single bot with a unsavory link can lead to a take-down. So we ask that everyone keep an eye out for suspicious activity (e.g. advertising, off-topic or nonsense posts, questionable links, etc.) and don’t hesitate to report the post using the handy little button that shows up next to the poster’s name. Now, get over there using the nifty little ‘Forum’ button at the top of the page (or clicking here) and start posting away!

On a side note, the new semester is right around the corner! As you ready up for classes once more, keep an eye out on our website and Facebook page for updates on upcoming events such as the PONG cable sale, backyard bash, and of course the LAN parties!

I never asked for this,
