1 pointHowdy everyone! Dino here again to say I haven't given up on getting Miami on the list of South Eastern guild cities! Last year was a lot of trial and error, and I'm hopeful that this year is a lot more trial, and a whole lot less error. I'm just making this thread as a place for Miami locals and people from surrounding cities who do raise money for Nicklaus Children's Hospital (formerly Miami Children's Hospital) to come together, say hi, and hopefully make events happen to help grow our lil community. I'm so excited to see what 2018 has in store for all of us, and I am so very excited to see old and new faces at ELU this year. As always, if you know people in the area, or if you know of people willing to help or support my efforts of getting Miami a guild, or wanting to support Nicklaus Children's Hospital, feel free to send them my way! Send me a message and I'll send you all the contact methods possible! I love this community so much, I know great things happen when we work together. Happy New Year everyone, can't wait to make 2018 the best year we've had yet! Alex "aBigScaryDino"
1 pointAny iRacers out there interesting in putting together and/or participating in an Extra Life series? Here's a quick sketch of my thoughts: Series of short races over 24 hrs on a mix of oval and road courses. Seek out race sponsors to supply a purse which is paid to winning drivers' chosen hospitals. Focus on base content (and some very widely used tracks) to lower barriers for entry I'd love to get a good group of Extra Lifers involved with this before I started reaching out to the iRacing community. The first order of business would be nailing down a date, series rules, and a broadcast partner. From there we can seek out drivers from the iRacing community and get them involved in Extra Life. If you're interested, reply here! Let's make this happen!
