January Guild Meeting and Newsletter

Recommended Posts

Here's to a FANTASTIC Extra Life 2016!

Have you signed up yet?

The 9th year of Extra Life has started, which means 2015 has officially come to a close. Did you make any Resolutions at New Years? Maybe registering 10 new friends or family members for Extra Life can be your Resolution! We're ready to start the year off on the right foot, with a few geeky events already coming down the pipeline in Ottawa:

G-Anime: Winter Edition
Date: January 22 - 24, 2016
Location: Palais des Congrès
50 boul. Maisonneuve, Gatineau
> We will have a booth setup in the convention for people to sign-up for Extra Life 2016. We're still looking for a few bilingual volunteers to help out with running the booth on Saturday and Sunday. All volunteers receive a day pass to the convention! Check the forums here for more information.

Game Night For Kids
Date: February 5, 2016 @ 6:30 PM
Location: Flapjack's Pancake Shack
354 Preston St.
> Learning new board games? Check. Playing old favourites with new people? Check. Having fun and raising money for CHEO? Double check. Head over to Flapjack's Pancake Shack for an evening of great games and fun. More information and ticket purchasing can be found on EventBrite.

Geek Garage Sale
Date: February 20, 2016 @ 9:00 AM
Location: Nepean Sportsplex
1701 Woodroffe Ave
> It's time once more for the great Geek Garage Sale, put on by the wonderful folks at Geek Market! The Ottawa Extra Life Guild will be hosting a video game lounge, bringing together old games and new. Try your hand in our 32-person Smash Bros Wii U Tournament! Registration for the tournament will take place onsite, and spots will fill up fast. We will be looking for volunteers to help us out, and more information will be coming in the next couple of weeks.

We'll be discussing some of these events, and others, at our January Guild Meeting. If you're interested in volunteering for one of our upcoming events, we'll be having a short volunteer information session before our Guild Meeting; this information session will start at approximately 6:00 PM. For more information or to sign up for a volunteer shift, please PM me or respond to this thread.


Our January Guild Meeting will take place on:
Date: Tuesday, Jan. 19th
Time: 7:00pm
The Blurry Pixel
201 Queen Street

Our guild meetings are ALL-AGES events that occur on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, and are open to all members of the public. There is no cost to attend this meeting at The Blurry Pixel, but we encourage you to purchase food and drinks (non-alcoholic or otherwise!) to support our local gaming business!

We'll have a brief "on topic" discussion period, followed by a healthy serving of games. This is our first meeting of the year, so let's make it the first of many great meetings!

If you haven't yet registered for Extra Life 2016, we will be testing out a new registration system at our meeting - come be part of our test and get yourself registered onsite for 2016!
