Seventh Column Week in Review
Although it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas across the Northern half of the country, here in Redmond it looks, well, pretty much cool, moist, and dark; a perfect breeding ground for various forms of fungi. So, as the Bungie Online Team disperses to more festive areas of the nation, those of us that consider themselves “locals” are sticking around because we have nowhere else to go. That’s what’s happening in Redmond, let’s peek in the email@example.com
mailbag and see what’s going on in your neck of the woods: Ajchar
from Halo Legendary
Now there is a chapter out there that honors all who beat the game on legendary (or are at least close) the chapter is called Halo Legendary. The entry requirement is you have to have beat at least 8 levels on legendary. If you have done that and are interested in joining send me an e-mail with a picture attached. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. emildlux
sends his comments on iGames winter season:
Holy cow. This was a fantastic series of games for us. We made it all the way to the championship round and it was a best of three games situation. We won both of the first games, which gave us the championship. However each of those games were won 5:00 to 4:58. It was incredibly tense. Here's the summary
of our proudest achievement so far. carlhoward

Writes in to announce his chapter has hit the 100 member mark:
THIS IS A MONUMENTAL FEAT PEOPLE! Since our inception this year in February, Battle Frenzy has reached 101 people as of this date and is still growing! Thank you all for your attendance and commitment to team. This is not possible without each and everyone of you! In North Texas, we all pretty much fall under the same umbrella, BATTLE FRENZY! This chapter is the largest and most active in TEXAS and it's right here for you to enjoy. You don't have to drive to Corpus Christi, Houston, San Antonio, That's right... It's local. I always see other chapters cruising our site to see what is happening here. I guess that they like the way it's run and that is okay with me, admiration is the best form of flattery. That just tells me that Battle Frenzy is doing something right. I'm positive that we'll double this amount in the coming year with the release of Halo 2. Everyone is gitty with anticipation for this game. Just think... here in this chapter alone we have had upwards of 10 LAN parties this year along with tournaments and always manage a most excellent time.
Now that is year is coming to a close I am glad to see that Battle Frenzy and other local chapters are getting together one last time. This is good for us. Like I said in a previous post to the effect of, "We don't know each other all that well, but we all come together for one common goal, Halo." We have a blast! We taunt, tease, and laugh with each other like we were
lifetime friends and that is way cool!
With all of this being said and I'm sure I speak for everyone else... I'm glad that I have had the chance to get to know you folks. One video game has made our lives richer. BUNGIE...THANK YOU! JOB WELL DONE! YOU ARE FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS PROFOUND CHANGE TO OUR LIVES AND AGAIN OUR THANKS!
Our wives, girlfriends, or significant others may not have completely complied or understood the infatuation with the game. But then again t
hey are not the one's playing are they? I know that they may never understand how fun it is and experience the life enriching game play. But none the less... we are thankful for your tolerance also.
Starting in January I will try to organize another LAN party. I've heard a rumor of HALO 2 being released in June of 2003, how true this is, I don't know. Only Bungie can tell. Regardless, we will wait. Bungie you have dedicated and loyal fans here in Texas! Know that! Our fun fare depends on this! We will all see you at the launch of the HALO sequel!
Members, I will see you on the 27nth. From what I am seeing, I think this LAN party will have 60 or more persons or more attending. But we do things in a big way here in Texas right? More information will come closer to the date of the event. Keep checking back for advisories. Till then, See you later!
BTW, Big Battle Frenzy Welcome to the newest members!
MELEE MAYHEM FOREVER!
Your founder, Carl Gamer Tag ..... SKULL LEADER
That about wraps up this week in review. I hope Santa brings you everything you deserve. At this point, all I can say is have a merry Christmas and, "God Bless us, everyone."
