Darwin Gamers Association ( DGA ) is a group of local gamers with an interest in multiplayer computer games and in sharing computer knowledge. Our goal is to learn, play and have fun. DGA is a non-profitable organisation, run by volunteers of all ages and gender. This makes the gaming experience something truly unique to the Territory. All money that is raised goes back into the organisation to purchase new equipment, venues and great prizes for our regular competitions.DGA originated in 1995 from the ’TrustNo1 LAN’, a group of about 20 striving gamers, eager to spread their knowledge and encourage people to be apart of the gaming network. With this small group, the DGA vision was created, to one day have people from all walks of life joining in on the fun and expand to hundreds of people. It has taken much time and effort to get DGA where it is today, however we are just getting started!
DGA LAN Events are held regularly at the Chambers Cresent Theatre (Malak Shopping Centre), with an average of 40 gamers attending. Competitions and clan wars are regularly organised with prizes to be won. Lucky door prizes are also up for grabs for any paid participant. DGA open the doors at 6:30pm Friday and close at 12pm Saturday with $25.00 entry to participate. Guests are always welcomed to come down free of charge, have a look and ask some questions.
DGA is again working towards our Evolution (EVO) LAN Event, which is a much larger event attracting people from interstate. EVO is held over three days, it offers more games, competitions and greater prizes. EVO 4 (2004) attracted over 220 gamers excluding spectators. We continue to look forward to one day hosting an event of greater then 300 people.
