Hello everybody

After some time spent in development in the beta stage, the GECO website is finally done. Or at least the first release.

You'll always find the newest updates & announcements concerning the LAN party here in the news section. At the moment we're still negotiating on where we will be holding the LAN party, but we're working really hard to get evertything ready for the LAN.
