  3. August Guild Meeting Recap

    Hey everyone this is the recap for yesterdays guild meeting! attendance-8(9 if you count Sarah's friend she dragged along XD) Start time-12:07 We had a short recap of Artscape. I Believe we signed up about 80 people this year. Upcoming Events This meeting was primarily focused on talking about Otakon since it's our biggest event of the year and it's happening next weekend the 11th-13th! First off Otakon had contacted us before we even contacted them this year. they seem really excited to have us which is awesomesauce! We have 5 volunteer badges to use this year(last year i believe we had 2) our space is gonna be spacious to say the least. 12ft by 24ft If you didn't get a chance to attend the meeting and are able to volunteer we could always use extra help for this event. here is the link to the calendar page. We were trying to come up with some cheap ideas for things to raffle off. and/or some things to have on our second table. let us know if you guys have ideas! thing we wil already have at the booth are the prize wheel with prizes like dumdums, hard candy, rubber bracelets, and temporary tattos. we'll have the tablets ofcourse to sign people up. we were thinking of having a slideshow on loop. we will have the 2 pieces of artwork that trip did on display and we might even have print copies to give out to people that register. (also side note Cynthia is going to send out the call for artwork from our other hopkins kids so for future events we could have a collage of artwork. Check out our mega events thread page for more events you can help out at! http://community.extra-life.org/forums/topic/6854-con-season-2017-baltimoredc-recruiting-events-megathread/ Events to look into next year these are some events we will look into contacting around september or so of this year to get into for next year. Katsucon (Feb. 16th-18th 2018) Magfest (Jan. 4th-7th 2018 as well as other times during the year)-Sarah has put in the request for this so lets hope for a favorable reply Super Smash Con - this conflicts with Otakon this year so maybe next year Smithsonian SAAM Arcade at American Art Museum Awesome Con The numbers so far Last year Dollars raised-$9,453 Participants Registered-313 This year Dollars raised-9,400 Participants Registered-330 Cynthia always stresses not to worry about dollars raised until near November as most of the donations come in the last couple weeks. Brainstorming Ideas Some of these weren't disscused at this past meeting but i want to keep them in the posts so we remember them -we may look into setting up a video conference at some point for the meetings incase people can't make it in. more on this probably after con season. -It seems quite a few of our regular meeting attendees live in southern Maryland so we may try to alternate meetings at some point. like having every other one at the hospital an maybe in bowie or somewhere near there. we wont worry about it until after august with otakon coming up but if anyone has any good ideas for places in the bowie area we might be able to hold meeting feel free to share with us! -Guild social activity. we may try to do some sort of streaming event as a social event since everyone has such busy schedules but it will probably be after con season at some point -getting water bottles with extra life stickers/logo for next year perhaps Next Guild Meeting Our next meeting will be via conference call September 16th at 12pm the number is 888-651-5908 and the code is 4916763 P.S. It was great to have James from the San Antonio Guild join us as well! it's always good to see new faces!

Attendence-7(one of which was via call in) start time 12:03 Upcoming Events -Prattcon July 15th This is a one day (6 hour) con at the Enough Pratt free library in Hollandtown. this is a pretty small con and so drew is going to man the table by himself. -Gamescape at Artscape July 21st-23rd We have a table for this year but we are still working out all the details with the people from gamescape/artscape. also we are looking into possibly having some hopkins kids art work on display at this and future events!

  9. June Meeting Recap

    hey everyone this is a recap of yesterdays meeting! Attendence-4 in person and one call in for a total of 5 start time 12:18 We had a recap of the SCG invitational. more info on that here .-Awesomecon-June 16th-18th Awesomecon is full this year. though we may be able to get a table for next year. we need to send in our submission for net year around November. -Prattcon July 15th Prattcon is a small one day con the the enouch pratt free library in holland town. we have a table this year and drew will be able to man this one by himself. -Gamescape at artscape July 21st-23rd We have a table for this year but are waiting to hear back about more details. -Arcade exhibit at the Smithsonian this is full for this year. we will have to try and start to coordinate something with them after august for next year. -Otakon August 11th-13th Otakon actually proactively contacted us this year(thought that was cool) we have a table and 2 passes to use for volunteers. check out the event page for more info! -Super smash con August 10th-15th this event is at the Dulles Expo Center, in Chantilly, VA. and takes place the same time as Otakon. it's unlikely that we'll have enough people to staff both events with Otakon being the higher priority for this year. but perhaps we can look into it for next year. -Blerd con june 30th-july 2nd Aaron let us know of Blerdcon which is a convention in DC that we might be looking into though since it's only 3 weeks away we may have to look into it for next year. -Novacon July 28th-30th Aaron also let us know about this con.This is a new con that was suggested to us that is in VA. we are looking into weathr it would be our territory or the richmond guilds and mayhaps we could work with them if it is. more etails on this as it becomes available. -Washingcon september 9th We are looking into this more details as it becomes available. Baltimore Comic con september 22nd-24th We have a table and 2 badges for this. more details as it gets closer. Sarah had a power point "Pitch Presentation" which she will also share at a later meeting. -The numbers so far- we have 200 gamers signed up(162 at this point last year) we have raised $5,210.24 so far(down from $6,591.10 at this point last year) though Cynthia stresses not to worry about the dollars raise this early in the year. most of our donations come in the last couple weeks before game day. also if we have more people registered and are able to register more over the summer at these events that gives a greater chance to raise more money for the kids! Our next guild meeting is July 8th at 12pm at the hospital. hope to see yall there!

  12. May Guild Meeting Recap

    hey everyone here is a recap of today's guild meeting. Due to public transit concerns i had for today I opted out of coming into the hospital and calling in via conference call as did most of us but Drew and Cynthia still met at the hospital and hosted the call in case anyone did show up since it was a very last minute change. Attendence-2 in person and 4 others called in so 6 in total The meeting started promptly at 12pm and lasted about an hour(i believe we were done offical stuff at around 12:50ish and were just catching up a bit for the last ten min. or so.) The big focus for today's meeting was The Star City Games(SCG) invitational next weekend (May 27th and 28th) held at the Baltimore Convention Center. This is a tournament for the trading card game "Magic the gathering" and they will have open play here as well(so even people that aren't part of the tournament can come and play. This is our first time attending this event so we're not sure what the turnout is going to be but we're hoping to get a lot of signups! We have a table next to the "Alternate artist area" (Alternate artist create different art works for the cards) Since this is being held at the BCC we wont have wifi so we may have to use mobile hotspots to sign people up and/or the extra life app or paper sign ups. either way we will have some backup options. we plan on having the prize wheel at the table as well as possibly a raffle of sorts. the halls open at 8am and we believe they are going to run until around 8pm or so.(not %100 sure of the end time) If you haven't already signed up for a shift to help out and would like or you just want more info on the event follow the link below to our calendar event page! Sarah shared a bit about the table cloth design she is working on for us to have that will incorporate the extra life colors as well as have some nice extra life themed stuff on it. . sounds really good and i think she mentioned Sharing some pictures at some point. Other upcoming events -Awesome Con -June 16th-18th We are looking into possibly getting a table at awesome con this year. -Pratt Con -July 15th- Pratt con is a small one day event held at the Enouch Pratt Free Library in holland town. Drew said he could man the table at this one since it's just a couple blocks from his house and since it's so small one person should be enough. -Gamescape at artscape -July 21st-23rd We haven't herd back yet for this from our contact so we will be pressing them more so we can see if we can get a table this year. -Otakon -August 11th-13th Otakon is one of the biggest events we do during the year and we can use as many people to help that are able. This is an event that is happening at the Baltimore Convention center. even if you can just help out for a couple hours that would be awesome! please go to the event page for more info. also remember Otakon is actually in D.C. this year! -Baltimore Comic Con- -September 22nd-24th We will try to have a table at comic con again this year. more info as it gets closer. -Other Ideas These ideas were mentioned at the last meeting but i want to keep them in the meeting posts so we remember them moving forward there is supposed to be an arcade exhibit at the Smithsonian in august so that is something we have to look into. Cynthia also had a genius idea to perhaps work on having a table at Radio-Thon for Extra Life since a lot of people that volunteer for that event might be interested in help with others. she is still just forming the brainstorm for this so I can't wait to hear what this could become for next year! the numbers for this year so far Participants-167(up from last year!) Dollars raised-$4,183(down just a little from last year but Cynthia made it VERY clear that the dollars raise seem to stay on the low side until near game day. our main focus is on the recruitment of participants. when we have plenty of dedicated participants the dollars will follow) Our goals for this year are 1,000 participants and $110,000 raised for the hospital. I know these are goals we can achieve by working together! remember everyone it's FOR THE KIDS! (FTK for the win!) Next Guild Meeting Our next guild meeting will be on Saturday at june 10th at the hospital. Hope to see yall then!
