I haven't been active here for quite a while, but when I was active, there was talk about a possible TF2 LAN in Toronto.
Knowing the logistics & costs of running a LAN or any kind of event in the first place, I don't expect to make any promises; However, I do work for a university that has amenities that they usually rent to faculty, staff & even the general public. We have access to many facilities including lecture halls, auditoriums, a cafeteria, & event/banquet halls (around 1885 sq ft) that are rented out to various clients. We even have room & boarding in the form of student residences (these are only available when classes are not in session, typically only during the summer term).
We are located in the heart of Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We have hotels, public transit & parking all accessible within minutes of our facilities. Ontario is right at the border of the US & is surrounded by the Great Lakes.
This is a pipe dream, but this community has been very welcoming to me before, but I'm not one to deal with the logistics of event management. If someone would like to partake in a possible project like this; I'll do my best to pass you on to the right person for the right price. I do expect a modicum of maturity from all parties involved & to the patrons if such an event does take place. I know most of you can behave yourselves, but I'd be terrified if slurs & drama were thrown out at an event like this where I vouched for such an event lol.
Please let me know if this is an impossible dream, or if this could happen. TF2 is an amazing game that deserves a good LAN or more every year.
I know COVID-19 has put everything to a halt, but I'd be happy to see something like this happen in 2021 or 2022!
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
