On January 5, 2008, Plattsmouth Public Library will open our door for our 2nd Clan Wars featuring the biggest game of the year: Halo 3.  The tournament will pit 4-man teams against each other in fierce electronic competition.  The program was spear-headed by the Youth Services Specialist Josh Smith and his newly created Gaming Council which includes Jesse Kosalka, Tyson Payton, J.D. Fabian, Mac Stine, Kevin Boyle, Colin Boyle, Stephen Himes, and Anthony Warner who have been hard at work promoting the tournament in the local schools.  Tyson Payton was quoted as saying, “It’s fun ‘cuz you can win money, and it’s fun owning people.”

The Clan Wars is one of our most anticipated programs of the year and we are hoping to see attendance from not only Plattsmouth, but many of the surrounding communities as well.  The Tournament will take place at the Library and begin at 10 am.  Participants are encouraged but not required to bring their own controllers.  Prizes will be awarded to the top four teams in the following increments: First prize is 4 $50 Visa Gift Card, Second Prize is 4 $25 Visa Gift Cards, Third prize is 4 $20 Visa Gift Cards, and Fourth Prize is 4 $15 Visa Gift Cards.  Registration is $40 per team and forms are available at the library at 401 Avenue A, Plattsmouth, NE, so sign up today!
