ABOUT WNY Gamers Club

WNY Gamers Club

The idea for WNY Gamers Club was formed sometime in 1998-1999 at one of the numerous almost monthly LAN Parties held in a small apartment in Clarence, NY and a garage in Hamburg, NY. The name was not around during those first years and little did we know but the core foundation was being built. A group of 12 to 18 attended these LAN's on a regular basis mainly to play the original Unreal Tournament, the days when everyone had their own skins, voice packs and stood out. In 2001 during one of the Clarence apartment LAN Party’s everyone was noticing that it was a packed house, at that time around 16 people, the suggestion came up to start a website to let people know when and where the next LAN Party would be. So wnygamersclub.com was registered and now wnyg.net along with our Facebook Page and Group. At first it was a simple site with information and pictures from previous frag fests, and then in 2003 the site expanded with the addition of forums and a face lift in 2014 to the main site. WNY Gamers Club has since grown with the addition of our larger LAN Party Extravaganza (LPE) events, which started in March of 2005 and drawing an attendance of over 60 gamers (PC and Console) at a time. These run along side of the smaller house LAN’s which have now moved from the old apartment and garage locations to a few members houses in Tonawanda, West Seneca and Hamburg, NY. We try to hold all LAN Party’s on the 2nd Saturday of each month, with weather being unpredictable in WNY this sometimes becomes the biggest factor. The LPE events are scheduled quarterly (January, April, July and October), still holding to the 2nd Saturday schedule, held at the American Legion Post 205 on Delaware, Ave in Kenmore, NY just minutes from the City of Buffalo. We have also joined forces other local groups and for the last 5 years have been helping out with MassiveLAN (MassiveLAN.com). All of our events are open to the public and we are still going after 18 years of gaming. :)
