    CEG Admins would like to welcome and thank the sponsors for the upcoming "El-Nino" swag and prizes! 1 week and counting hope to see you all at the event!!!


    1-19-2016 BAWLS GUARANA LAN Sponsorship

    CEG would like to again welcome BAWLS GUARANA as a primary sponsor for our upcoming LAN. But this time is different from all other sponsorships. Bawls has provided CEG with 40 cases of beverage to be used for CEG upcoming event and future events.

    So here is just a little math for you:

    40 cases x 24 cans = 960 cans x 16 fluid ozs = 15,360 fluid ozs / 128 = 120 gallons of wonderful BAWLS beverage!

    A HUGE Thank you goes out to Bawls for their support in CEG and Ferris State University. If you'd like to tell them thank you check out their Facebook page.
