The University of Florida’s Gator Gaming club held its GatorLAN Fall 2015 on Saturday, Nov. 7 in the Reitz Union Grand Ballroom.
As the largest free-gaming event in the Southeastern U.S., GatorLAN, held three times a year, had a variety of activities.
These included video game tournaments, a fan art competition, video game trivia contests and more.
Those who did not participate in the tournaments or contests could still play at open game stations and purchase spectator tickets for the official event tournaments. The next event will be held in Spring 2016, but the exact date is still being determined.
