What an awesome idea to bring people and friends together that all love the same, technology, our web, pc games, communications, and our world today.

For those who don't know, The Gathering is a massive 5-day long gaming tournament held every year at Hamar, Norway. KANDU’s Chillout is a special section at the event which is intended as a way to get gamers away from their PCs for a while, so that they can join in on fun games, competitions or just to chill out.
