HPB Championship
I am pleased to announce that we do have champions for the HPB division. Better late than never, I guess. Congratulations to GI for winning the HPB championship.

1st Season Wrap Up
First season of Lagapalooza 98 is officially wrapped up... DNA won against SITH for the lpb championship. In the hpb playoffs GI won over SITH and DNA won over Tusa leaving GI and DNA to match for the hpb championship. Unfortunately, after two weeks, a legal championship match had yet to be played nor did it seem likely to be played therefore we have decided to wrap up the first season of lp98 without an hpb champion. I am going to refrain from making anymore comments about the issue other than to say this type of situation was unexpected and we will try to put some measures in place for next season to insure that it doesn't happen again.

Other than that, I am pleased with the the first tournie and I hope most of you are too. We've decided to continue with Lagapalooza, which will be become a small league with continuous seasons/tournies. GDI will be co-hosting Lagapalooza with Rum from here on out. Right now we are working on getting prepared for the next season. We've got to design a new web page, which Psycho[GDI] and Redneck[Rum] are working on now. We also need to know which clans would like to continue to participate and we have some new clans to consider. I anticipate this process taking approximately two weeks and then we should be ready for next season.

Sunday March 7, 1999

Playoffs Update
DNA wins 2 to 0 against SITH tonight for the LPB championship. Congrats DNA... Match results aren't in for the HPB playoff game between DNA and Tusa but unofficial word is DNA won 2 to 1 against Tusa. Congrats again DNA. GI vs SITH is tomorrow and the winner of that match will play DNA for the HPB championship.


Sunday March 7, 1999

Playoffs Update
GI provided me with some last minute information on their GDI and BTA matches which gives them 25 points for the regular season and ties them with their allies DNA. This does not change the playoff schedule. DNA vs Tusa (hpb) is scheduled for tonight as is the lpb championship match, SITH vs DNA. The other hpb playoff match, SITH vs GI, is scheduled for Monday night.

Dropped Clans
Whoa, another update :) The TEC lpbs have been dropped because of some recent problems. The lpb side of Lagapalooza has been having some probs, no doubt about it. That only leaves us five active clans, so we'll have to figure out how we want to do the playoffs.

Season Near The End
I was wrong last week to say we just had a week left. As of today, we have one more week left... Regular season ends on Feb 21.


Sunday February 7, 1999

Dropped Clans
We don't update the news very often do we? :) Well, we cover everything on the mailing list. Anyways, we almost made it to the end of the season without losing a clan, but not quite. Clan Braveheart is no more. Good luck to Wallace in whatever he decides to do. We also lost BTA's lpbs, which had dwindled down to just a couple people. Any clans that haven't played these guys yet will get a win for the match.

Season Near The End
Well, we have just one more week left in this season. Everybody get caught up on your matches and get ready for the playoffs. The next question is - How did we like this first run and do we want to keep doing it?

Remember your Forms !!!

     We seem to be pretty slow getting the Pre-Match forms in. There seems to be no registered matches for tonight. That leaves2 days for the other 6 matches to be played. =O
     Please get those forms in so we can keep track of what is going on.

Thanks Guys and Gals,

Sir, if you were my husband, I would poison your drink.

Madam, if you were my wife, I would drink it.

Tournament Officially Starts Today !!!

     Lagapalooza finally starts today. Everyone needs to check their roster pages and make sure that everyone is listed on them, if not, I need the info by the end of the day to avoid the 1 week waiting period. Everyone also needs to remember to fill out the pre-match and post-match forms for every match. If any clan has members who would like to be officials then they need to fill out the officials request form. Let's all go have some fun now. =)

You know you play Quake too much if............
You have ever played Quake when so drunk you could
hardly make it through doorways.

Thanksgiving is over!!! Get back to work.

     I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and got plenty of rest. We should be starting up soon. I still need the rosters for the clans that have not yet sent them in. I sent an E-mail on the LP98 mailing list so please check it and submit a roster if your name is on the list. If we don't get started soon, this is going to Lagapalooza '99

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather...Not screaming
and yelling like the passengers in his car.

New Clan joins Lagapalooza =)

     We had a new Clan join tonight. I would like for everyone to Welcome Clan GDI to the Tournament. They will be replacing Clan AK. =)

A woman drove me to drink and I didn't
even have the decency to thank her.

Update Time

     Sorry guys, I have not had time to make an update lately. Maybe I should say I have been to lazy to make an update lately. Anyway, we need to start getting the Clan rosters in so I can start setting up the pages. I was thinking that if y'all wanted to make your own roster pages with your own backgrounds and graphics on it it might be cool. We can store all the pages on the Lagapalooza server after you make them and just link to them. So far we have 3 officials, Aragorn, Copo and Tupac. We need the guys who want to be officials to contact Crash so he can set it up. One last thing, Tupac (or someone) set up a Lagapalooza IRC channel at #lagapalooza.

If we were not supposed to eat animals,
why were they made out of meat?

RedNeck's Mistake

     Ok, I said the other day that I had made a mistake. It seems like the mistake was that I though I was wrong. [AK] did confirm that they wanted to join the tournament. Thanks for the confirmation Spectre. We will look forward to seeing y'all in the tournament. =)

they just like to pee a lot.

Hero Joins Tourney

     We would like to welcome [HERO] to the tournament as our newest LPB Clan. Thanks for signing up Major Payne.

I didn't fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian.

Misteak on Clans!! ;^)

     Seems like AK has not confirmed yet. Sorry AK, if you decide to confirm at a later time we will be more than happy to add you back to the clans list.

When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.
--Henny Youngman

Two more clans Join

     We would like to welcome BTA and AK to the Lagapalooza line up. Things are looking good so far. We could use a few more LPB Clans though. If you know of any good LPB clans that you think would make a nice edition to the tourney please E-mail Crash and provide him with contact info if you have it available.

If you ever reach total enlightenment while drinking beer,
I bet it makes beer shoot out your nose.
