  1. Walker Stalker Con Calendar Event Schedule is up and ready for volunteers for Walker Stalker Aug 19th and 20th. 2 shifts per day 9 AM - 2 PM 1 PM - 6 PM
  2. Hey Guys We had these reports in the June Meeting, however wantred to post them up here for your viewing pleasure. What these reports show are our trend over the past few years. We'll try to update these monthly. ExtraLifeFundraisingTotalsByYear.xlsx ExtraLifeYearOverYear.xlsx
  3. Hi Extra Life Team, I work with a lot of clients (both gaming and non-gaming). This year I've seen a lot of non-gaming brands join the scene through either direct sponsorship (Gillette, DirecTV), or direct involvement (GEICO Gaming). I have non-gaming contacts who would like to join the scene through a philanthropic approach. Sample idea 1: Brand X promotes their product on a streamer's page. For every lead generated, the brand would donate a portion to the streamer and a portion to the charity. Sample idea 2: Brand X does a straight donation and "buys" screen time on a stream/team. Sample idea 3: ??? Is this allowed? Is there a list of "top stream teams" that can be asked? Who would I need to talk to regarding business development? Peter

  9. Anime Boston Calendar Event Once again, we have space at Anime Boston. We can have all hands on deck, as many badges as we need. So volunteer away. I set only so many shifts, but on Saturday, we can never have too many people. Comes with a weekend badge to AB.
  10. Supermegafest Calendar Event And just like that we have another confirmed event. Supemegafest 4/7-4/9/2017 Shifts and schedule are up for Sat and Sun. I will go out and set up on Friday and man the table that evening if anyone wants to join me. We will be going with the table top/non powered edition, seeing that the area that the comp tables are in are usually not powered and thankfully due to some other outside forces, we we able to finagle power last time, but don't want to push our luck this time. So this con we will highlight the table top/card/dice game possibilities for Extra Life.
  11. On top of our booth there, the Anime Boston staff has asked if we'd be able to lend a few hands to assist with running the Saturday tournament. This is the tournament that our table gets mistaken for every year. So we are putting it out there to see if 2 of you folks woudl like to assist them from approximately 1- 4 PM. This would be totally seprate from any shift at the extra life booth and you are not required to do both. So if you're interested in going to Anime Boston with a free weekend badge, like video game tournaments, and are willing to give them a few hours help in turn for the badge. Let us know.

  15. Hey Folks, We finished a great year. Thanks agian to all involved. Final totals for the year. 1710 Participants ( 2nd overall) $260K ( 4th Overall) **I think this is a new record total for Boston Children's!!! Guild VP Position From the previous post, we are taking applications for the Guild VP position. So far we've had a few applicants, and we are looking at them. More to come. Meetings We are not having a January meeting. There was no availability at our meeting space, and with the holiday response from Microsoft was too late to get in for the first week. Our next meeting dates are Feb 8th and Mar 8th, with a official 2017 kick off meeting aimed at first week of April. Events/Cons We have table space at Arisia next weekend. With the tables being in the same location as last year we are just going with a flyer table, unmanned. This con was not very prodictive for us with the tables in that space. (I will be at Arisia all weekend and will supply the table with Flyers.) We already have 2 cons for March!!! Northeast Comic Con has moved to Mar 4th/5th in Hanover. It has been added to the calendar, once we have more details, we will update. PAX East!!!! - I know we have a booth, and exhibitor badges. Location will be on the floor again like last year. Once I have final details we will update the calendar. Anime Boston - 3/31-4/2 - We have our normal space in the gaming room. More details to come. Spring Supermegafest - Will know more in a couple weeks if we will have a space at Spring Megafest, stand by. Looking forward to another amazing year with all of you amazing folks.

  17. We've had a wondefull year. Thanks you to Eric Richburg, @PotatoTaco for being a fantastic Vice President. It is unfortunate, but for great reasons Eric is stepping down. With a Family, a house and school, keeping on as Guild VP is a tall task. Eric will still be involved, but will step back into a contributor role. Thanks again for everything!! If you’re interested in serving as the Vice-President of the Extra Life Boston Guild for the 2017 year, apply today! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NDC28JV Applications are due by January 9th. Selections will be made based on application and interview conducted by staff from Boston Children’s Hospital and CMN Hospitals. Questions?

  18. Our final event for the year is inthe calendar. Northeast Comic Con Event North East Comic Con Site Schedule is up in the event and ready for volunteers.
  19. Hey Everybody. So we've officially had out last event before Game Day. We finished strong with about 40 sign ups at Supermegafest. A great Job to all that volunteered this weekend. @Chi, @Kelsey, @DMo2TheMax, @PotatoTaco,@3dge, @aradiadarling and David!! We still have one more con in Dec (3rd/4th) but being after game day, this is our game with the public con. (Northeast Comic Con) We will be there to keep awareness up and to just have fun with the crowd. This year has seemed challenging. Some shows we had to really push for sign ups, others we had a suprising reponse. All in all, we had great efforts from everyone. Thanks to all. Its you guys that make us so successful every year. With that being said, we're not done by a long shot. Even though we've had our last event that we are recruiting at, we can all still spread the word and try and get participants to sign up in our daily lives. Also, now is the time to switch or put most of your focus on your fundraising. Make sure you're gettign your links out there to family and friends. You can still get your donations in through 12/31 via your pages, but any offline donations have to be in by the end of November , I believe in order to be processed by the end of the year totals. Before the Supermegafest additions were stitting at 1249 participants as oif this morning. 2nd place to WA (1800) and ust above CA (1226) Lets keep up the push to sign people up. We won't be having a meeting prior to game day and we'll most likely take December off to recoup and rest. We'll look to schedule somethign early Jan to celebrate and tout our totals. Until then, push on, keep signing people up, keep psuhing fundraising and then in 2 weeks...... Game on!!! Thank you all for an great hard worked year!!! #FTK!!!!!
