    We would like to have a presence at this event, but at this time we are unsure if we will be able to secure a table. Posting the event as a "Save the Date." If you would be interested in volunteering at this event, please RSVP. We will add details and a schedule closer to the date, or will remove the event if we're unable to get convention space. If we are able to secure space, badges will be limited. Link to the event:
  2. Hi everyone! MegaCon 2017 is right around the corner and we finally have a table confirmation. That means we need to coordinate who all is interested and available to run said table for the event. For those that don't know, it is held at the Orange County Convention Center and the convention days and times are as follows: Thursday, May 25 2pm–9pm Friday, May 26 10am–7pm Saturday, May 27 10am–7pm Sunday, May 28 10am–5pm Please let us know if you are interested and available to help out at the table for any length of time on these days. We only have a set number of badges so we need to know who all is interested and we will make up a schedule from there. The last day for volunteers will be this Sunday, May 21, so that we have time to coordinate with everyone and figure out what the badge situation will be. Thanks everyone!

  9. RavenCon 12 is April 28-30th at the DoubleTree in Williamsburg, VA. This year we have 3 badges available to those willing to offer some time to work the Extra-Life table. This is a great recruitment opportunity. There's lots of gamers in the community that attend this convention and need to hear about Extra-Life. The badges will go to the first 3 people who offer to work the table for at least 4 hours during the convention. They can be split into two chunks of two hours if preferred. More would be greatly appreciated but make sure to enjoy yourself at the convention as well. The hours that need coverage are listed below, so claim whatever time you can. First come, first serve. Friday: 5:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Saturday: 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Sunday: 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. We're looking to maximize coverage so please try to minimize overlap when scheduling time. Already headed to RavenCon and can't do 4 hours? You're still welcome to spend some time at the table and help out. Reply to this thread (or to the e-mail coming soon) if you're looking to cover any table time so we can give you the details you need about materials and badges. Lastly, thanks to Jillian for helping us get this table.

    We've been offered a table at Cleveland ConCoction. We should be receiving up to four weekend passes and we'll be looking for people to man the table each day. The passes are non-transferrable, so we will need to figure out who wants to be at the table each day. It's also been mentioned that there is a game room and we can stream and raise money for Extra Life. If you might be available to stream for a bit, let us know. We should have more information around the game room in the coming days. Pictures will be taken of the table and promoted through the Cleveland ConCoction social media accounts. This is a fantastic way for us to get some traction right at the beginning of the year.
