PITTSBURGH– Pittsburgh LAN Coalition, Inc. ("Pittco") plans to hold its eleventh major event, IRON STORM 11, on August 8 and 9 at the Castle Shannon Firehall in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Pittco is opening the doors for 200 gamers for 24 hours of non-stop gaming, competition, camaraderie, and fun.

Pittco's Iron Storm attracts gamers from throughout the greater Pittsburgh area, the eastern seaboard, and even into Canada. There are 200 seats available, and registration is open immediately.

"Iron Storm 10 was our second largest and most successful event," Pittco President of the Board Sean Potter of Turtle Creek said. "More than 160 gamers, staff, and spectators enjoyed the competitive tournaments, the prizes from our gracious sponsors, and the atmosphere of gaming and fun."

Iron Storm 11 will be held at the Castle Shannon Volunteer Fire Department located at 3600 Library Road Castle Shannon, PA 15234. Pittco has enjoyed this location for more than three years.

Tournaments:
1v1 Starcraft: Brood War
5v5 Counter-Strike: Source ($25 buy-in)
4v4 Left 4 Dead
4v4 Halo 3 (360)
4v4 Gears of War 2 (360)
2v2 Super Smash Brothers Brawl (Wii)

Several well-known gaming groups announced their participation in Iron Storm 11 planning, as well. Rec0il Gaming, a primarily console gaming group from Pittsburgh, will be providing several Xbox 360 consoles and monitors for attendees. Can't Stop This, a gaming group spawned from within Pittco, will be organizing the Quake 3 Clamato Bowl tournament in which gamers will compete to win a case of Bawls, or be second place and drink a clam and tomato juice beverage known for its pungent smell and unique flavor.

Registration for the event is now open, and is accessible via Pittco’s website at http://www.pittco.org/register/. The cost of the event will be $25 pre-paid, or $35 at the door. Drinks and snacks will be made available to everyone, and pizza will be provided for an small, additional cost.

For more information, contact Greg Baden, Pittco sponsorship manager, or Colin Dean, Pittco Board secretary. See also http://www.pittco.org.  Please DO NOT call the  Castle Shannon Volunteer Fire Department, as they do not have any information on our organization or event aside from the date.
