U.E.G, or Union of Elite Gamers is a organization that hosts a popular social event, known as LAN Parties. LAN stands for Local Area Network, and in these LAN’s gamers bring their computers, connect to this closed network and engage in a competitive gaming experience unlike any other! A great deal of time is taken to plan out tournament rules, prizes, sponsorship, food, and other fun activities so there is always something happening.
Some people consider gamers to be anti-social, secluded by a computer, shunning themselves from society. This image couldn’t be more of a misconception, especially nowadays when PC gaming alone tallies up to be a billion dollar industry. The whole idea of "multi-player" gaming is participating in a pastime with a group of people. LAN Parties takes this concept and raises it to a new social event. The whole environment created is so positive that these events are becoming more and more popular all over the world. We feel at U.E.G. takes this occasion and makes the experience more enjoyable.

History of UEG
Dan Adiletta and Chris Norland founded U.E.G. in August of 2000. Since then we’ve held 5 gaming events, and have gained quite a bit of experience on how to host a successful gathering. Along with the comforts of a carpeted hotel conference room, other features that come along with the weekend are access to a pool, breakfast buffet across the hall and hotel rooms if you want to sleep in an actual bed. The hotel is also just minutes from the historic town of Princeton and a great variety of quality restaurants and shops (like the Princeton Record Exchange!). View a "Guide to Princeton".
To the Parents on Safety
Safety is our top concern. We understand that the parents may have an immediate negative response to the concept of LAN Parties because of your son/daughter spending time overnight in a room with people he/she has never met before. We try to go the extra distance to comfort these concerns.
There will always be an Event Host will in the room and awake to help in the case of an emergency. If a parent would like to attend the LAN Party, he or she may do so without the admissions charge as long they don't connect an additional computer to the network. Taking turns on their child's computer is allowed!
