Switchfest to Beachcon: April Buzzed

Thunder Gaming welcomed April with an addition of Hearthstone bi-weekly tournaments, Beachcon, Switchfest, and our second Call of Duty Tournament in the Thunder Gaming Esports Center. The rest of Thunder Gaming was busy hosting the Bombers, a League of Legends team from Australia, and shooting commercials. Radioflash, an independent film also filmed at our location and sponsored the prize pool for our Dropkick Tuesday event that week.
