04/15/2006 - GameFest Spokane 2006 a Success

The inaugural event, GameFest Spokane 2006, was pronounced a success. Gamers took over the Spokane Convention Center to compete against each other for prizes and bragging rights. With over 300 participants, the sponsors were happy. Businesses and organizations hosting booths were happy. Event speakers reported raptly attentive audiences. The participating gamers were glued to various screens. Even those who had attended Friday’s all night LAN party were in no hurry to leave Saturday morning. Prize winners seemed more interested in continued play than in the prizes themselves – and many of the prizes were quite nice indeed. The consensus was that there will definitely be a GameFest Spokane 2007.

Gateway Computer Inc. generously donated the use of the computers for the PC tournament (not District 81 as previously reported). Bumpers brought a number of classic arcade games to go with such newcomers as Halo 2: Xbox; Madden, March Madness, and MVP; Unreal 2004, Half-Life 2 and CounterStrike; and Battlefield 2, Battlefield 2: Special Forces, Unreal Tournament 2004 (MapMixer), Unreal Tournament 2004 (CarBall), Half-Life 2, CounterStrike: Source.

Mainstream media attention for GameFest 2006 was remarkably good. More than one local television station carried spot shots on their local news. Even though the Inlander was the exclusive print sponsor, the Spokesman-Review had a front-page feature article on Saturday. Deejays from Rock 941/2 handed out the prizes and generally kept the program moving.

Many deserve a round of applause and many thanks for making GameFest Spokane 2006 happen. Thanks to the Spokane Area Economic Development Council (EDC), Robin Toth and Wendy Smith; VPnet and Steve Trabun; OneEighty Networks and LLIX (Liberty Lake Internet Exchange). Other Sponsors included
Wired 96.9 and Rock 94 ˝.
