    We are very excited to announce that we will be gaming at The Frontier of RTP. The Frontier located in the center of RTP and is a super-modern, shared office space. The venue allows anyone to drop-in and have meetings completely free of charge. The space is HUGE and has plenty of tables, chairs, couches, projectors, power outlets that pull down from the ceiling and most importantly has very fast internet. Check out a few pictures below. I don't think we could have hoped for a better location! Who's excited!?

    Guild Leaders, Let's Chat! We have a lot to be thankful for this year! Namely, the amazing participation and support from Guilds across the US and Canada. Swing by the Discord and let's chat about 2017, what worked, what didn't and what we can do to finish strong for Extra Life until the end of the year. I really enjoyed our chat in September, so please let's gather once more before the end of the year!

    Come join some of the Extra Life Guild as we hang out at Pulp 716 and help find encourage new members join for Extra Life 2016. UPDATE: Below please find the schedule for our Pulp 716 schedule for the recruiting event this Saturday. Because of a death in the family, Ian, Damian, and possibly Zach won't be able to join us as originally planned. So I'm keeping them off the schedule for now. Because of limited space, I'm breaking things down for the original volunteers while keeping Guild Leadership there at all times for extra support. If there are any issues at all, please let me know immediately so I can make arrangements! Jamie: 1-5 Parker: 1-5 Joe: 2-6 Laura: 2-6 Ryan: 5-8 Marshall: 5-8

    As per usual, it's time for our monthly meeting! If you have been following the forums or getting our emails, our monthly meetings will be held on the third Thursday of every month. May is here, along with the sun and they are shoving Anime North in our face. So we will be focusing most of our attention on Anime North and how we can apply whatever we learned at EGLX to make sure we are even more successful at a larger con. Please RSVP for this event as there is limited space at the current location. If there is a larger than expected amount of people, then I will make arrangements to a larger venue. We will be meeting at 401 Games on Yonge St. Which is just down the road from Wellesley Station. Hope to see you all there

    MAGFest is the most targeted event hosted in the Baltimore/D.C. Metro area, with 20-25,000 attendees - all of whom have a love for gaming! To read more about MAGFest, check out this article on Wikipedia or the MAGFest site for Super MAGFest. MAGfest and their gracious charity coordinator went above and beyond to include us again this year, even though they had very limited space available. This was our biggest event last year, crushing even our best numbers from Otakon. Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center proved to be a very convenient location, but parking at the Gaylord can be difficult in the afternoon. MAGFest has graciously provided us with a free table and four free dealer badges in their Marketplace area. Traffic will be very heavy on Friday and Saturday. MAGFest has some required staffing hours, but the Marketplace is open 24 hours during the event. For this first year, we plan to staff the table for the minimal hours, but will extend our hours on Saturday evening as compared to last year. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO READ THE SECTION ABOUT FOOD AND POTTY BREAKS - THE GAYLORD IS NOT AS CONVENIENT FOR FOOD AS THE BALTIMORE CONVENTION CENTER OR THE WALTER E. WHITE CONVENTION CENTER! COVERAGE Since this event has minimum expected coverage hours, it's very important that you are on time for your shift. Please let @Sarah know immediately if you don't think you'll be on time for an opening shift. As-needed Break Coverage @LittleSith @jbooth117 @Shojin @Aaron Wednesday Between 5:30 PM - Midnight - table setup only @Sarah Thursday 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM @LittleSith 1:30 PM - 7:00 PM @Sarah Friday 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM @Sarah REPLACEMENT NEEDED ASAP, please advise if you can cover this shift 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM @Aaron 2:00 PM - 7:00 PM @Shojin Saturday 11:00 AM - 5:00 PM @Emokidcries @Ceraph1216 12:00 AM - 3:00 PM @Aaron 3:00 PM - 9:00 PM @Shojin 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM @Tiny415 Sunday 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM includes breakdown and load-out @Shojin @Sarah @Ceraph1216 Setup and load-out instructions will be provided to volunteers working on these processes only. PARKING There is plentiful parking in the area within convenient walking distance. It is unlikely you will need to walk more than about 5 blocks. It is strongly recommended that you pre-purchase parking so it is not sold out prior to your volunteer shift. Parking can be purchased through National Harbor's parking reservation site here: https://nationalharbor.clickandpark.com/venue Parking will cost between $14 and $20 per day. Reserving your parking ensures you will have in/out privileges during the time you are parked. Volunteers who will be driving to the convention will incur out-of-pocket parking expenses. These parking expenses will not be reimbursed, however they can be written off at your end-of-year tax return as volunteer expenses. Please be sure to request a receipt if you use cash-paid event parking. Retain a copy of your receipts for your tax records. PUBLIC TRANSIT I was unable to locate useful Public Transit information for getting to National Harbor. It appears that shuttle services are available from Reagan National Airport. It may be best to travel as close as possible to the area via MARC train and hire an Uber/Lyft/Taxi to your final destination. ATTENDING PANELS, CONCERTS, EVENTS, AND EXPLORING THE CONVENTION If the badges are similar this year, they include access to all convention content, but will have a vendor flag attached to them. During your volunteer shift (especially since coverage is going to be minimal), you are not permitted to use your badge to attend events or panels. You are expected to be present at the table and actively recruiting future Extra Life participants. Before or after your volunteer shift, you are welcome to explore the convention. If you attend an event, please be sure to remove/conceal your Extra Life name badge. Before, during, and after your shift — especially every minute that you wear that convention badge — you are representing Extra Life, Johns Hopkins Children's Center, and the Extra Life Baltimore Guild (and in this area, Children's National as well). MAGFest has generously waived their fees for us in order to make it possible for us to attend and volunteer at this event. It is very important that we maintain a great relationship with the staff at MAGFest so that we can continue to attend. Remember, you are representing a children's charity. None of us would judge you for attending certain 18+ events, but you shouldn't be attending it using a badge donated for professional use. Use common sense, and check with @Sarah if you aren't sure if the panel or event you'd like to attend is appropriate. LUNCHES AND POTTY BREAKS If you need to take a quick bathroom break and you do not have backup coverage at the booth, please take any loose valuable items with you (i.e. laptops, tablets, cell phones). There will be a small lock box available in our booth as well. If you have backup coverage at the booth and need to leave to get food or take a bathroom break, please be courteous and let the other volunteer know that you are leaving the table. The Gaylord is notoriously expensive to purchase food at, the number of vendors inside the Convention Center is limited, and the lines are horrible. Seeking food offsite includes an inconvenient walk and even longer lines. If you don't bring food, you may not have an opportunity to eat. This is the number one issue with the Gaylord National Resort! Please be sure to pack snacks or a decent, fulfilling lunch and plenty of beverages. Better yet, bring a water bottle. You will have opportunities to refill it throughout the convention. SIGNING UP TO VOLUNTEER This event is almost fully staffed, but we need an experienced opener on Friday to replace @Sarah due to some last minute mandatory work obligations. We need one volunteer minimum per shift to start off with, however extra coverage during periods would be appreciated! For additional details, please message @Sarah, @NodnarbDude or @Ceraph1216. Volunteers will receive ongoing updates and instructions throughout the week and during the convention. Thanks so very much for donating your time and energy for the kids!

    Otakon is one of the largest pop-culture conventions (and the largest anime convention) in our area. It is also our biggest convention when it comes to sign-ups! Otakon has consistently pulled attendance numbers of 28-33k attendees, many of whom are in our target demographic. Otakon hosts a large gaming hall in which many unusual, rare, or popular video and arcade games are available for free play to attendees. In this gaming hall, there are also small indie developers with booth space who are promoting their games. This is where our booth will be located. This year, Otakon is moving to Washington, DC and will be held in the DC Convention Center. This is a significantly larger location with better public transit access than the Baltimore Convention Center, however since it will be their first year (and ours) in the new location, I cannot provide many details at 4 months out from the convention. Some standard volunteering guidelines will apply, and I have included them below. If this is a convention you would like to attend this year as a volunteer, please RSVP as soon as possible so we can plan staffing needs and get an appropriate number of badges from the Otakon team. I am currently unaware of the total number of volunteer badges we will have available to us for this year. I will be working on this with my contact at Otakorp over the next month or so. For the time being, we will tentatively operate off of the following schedule, which is subject to change: Friday 10 AM to 5 PM includes Booth Setup 11 AM to 6 PM 12 PM to 7 PM includes Booth Breakdown and lockup Saturday 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM includes Booth Setup 10 AM to 5 PM 12 PM to 7 PM 5 PM to 11 PM 7 PM to 1 AM includes Booth Breakdown and lockup 10 PM to 1 AM includes Booth Breakdown and lockup Sunday 10 AM to 2 PM includes Booth Setup 11 AM to 3 PM includes Booth Breakdown PLEASE DO NOT TAKE YOUR CONVENTION BADGE HOME UNLESS OTHERWISE INSTRUCTED. These badges will likely need to be passed back and forth between volunteers throughout the weekend. PARKING Please plan on parking 1 hour prior to your volunteering shift. Traffic in the city gets heavy in the late morning, particularly on Friday and Saturday. It may become harder to find a garage that is not full on Saturday or Sunday. If you are not staying at the convention late into the evening, it may be better to use public transit into the city. Please reference Google Maps to assist you in locating a parking garage close to the convention center. https://www.google.com/maps/search/parking/@38.9048838,-77.0273708,16z/data=!4m8!2m7!3m6!1sparking!2sWalter+E.+Washington+Convention+Center,+801+Mt+Vernon+Pl+NW,+Washington,+DC+20001!3s0x89b7b7ed3715b137:0x32771de147fa5350!4m2!1d-77.0229934!2d38.9048838 Volunteers who will be driving to the convention will incur parking expenses. These parking expenses will not be reimbursed, however they can be written off at your end-of-year tax return as volunteer expenses. Please be sure to request a receipt if you use cash-paid event parking. Retain a copy of your receipts for your tax records. PUBLIC TRANSIT The Walter E. Washington Convention Center has its own Metro stop off of the Green and Yellow lines. Volunteers choosing to take transit who live closer to Baltimore or in the counties may be able to use the MARC train system for inexpensive and efficient transit into DC, where they can then transfer to Metro rail to their final destination or obtain other transit (i.e. bus, Uber, etc.). Please keep in mind that the MARC system runs on a very limited schedule compared to the DC Metro, and you will need to plan your trip and your transit according to your volunteer shift in such a way that you are able to get home successfully. Otakon has created a guide to alternative transit options here: https://www.otakon.com/info/location/all-roads/ Volunteers who take public transit to the convention will incur transit expenses. These transit expenses will not be reimbursed, however they can be written off at your end-of-year tax return as volunteer expenses. Retain a copy of your receipts for your tax records. ATTENDING PANELS, EVENTS, OR EXPLORING THE CONVENTION At this time, we are not entirely sure if the industry badges provided by Otakon will allow normal access to panels and events. This section will be updated with further information as it becomes available. During your volunteer shift (especially since coverage is going to be minimal), you are not permitted to use your badge to attend events or panels. You are expected to be present at the table and actively recruiting future Extra Life participants. Before or after your volunteer shift, if your badge does not need to be handed off to another volunteer, you are welcome to explore the convention. All badges MUST be turned in to @Sarah before leaving the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. You may not attend off-site events, and you may not attend 18+ or hentai panels. Badge hand-offs will be coordinated via group text message. If you attend an event, please be sure to remove/conceal your Extra Life name badge. Before, during, and after your shift — especially every minute that you wear that convention badge — you are representing Extra Life, Johns Hopkins Children's Center, and the Extra Life Baltimore Guild. Otakon has generously waived their fees for us in order to make it possible for us to attend and volunteer at this event, and it is a very successful convention for us. It is very important that we maintain a great relationship with the staff at Otakon so that we can continue to attend. Remember, you are representing a children's charity. None of us would judge you for attending cosplay burlesque , but you shouldn't be attending it using a badge donated for professional use. Use common sense, and check with @Sarah if you aren't sure if the panel or event you'd like to attend is appropriate. To consider and plan out panels and events you'd like to attend, download the Guidebook app from Google Play or iTunes. This is a great resource for additional information about the convention (hours, directions, and updates). LUNCHES AND POTTY BREAKS If you need to take a quick bathroom break and you do not have backup coverage at the booth, please take any loose valuable items with you (i.e. laptops, tablets, cell phones). There will be a small lock box available in our booth as well. We have not been to the new location in DC yet, but it is likely that there will be bathrooms located in the gaming hall. If you have backup coverage at the booth and need to leave to get food or take a bathroom break, please be courteous and let the other volunteer know that you are leaving the table. Lines at the food vendors nearest the gaming hall are horrendous, and it is not practical to leave the convention to purchase food (trust me, the lines will be even worse at normal restaurants). Any food you may be able to purchase will be overpriced convention food. It is strongly suggested to pack a lunch if possible. SIGNING UP TO VOLUNTEER Please let us know when you can volunteer. I will update the event with confirmed volunteer names below the shifts they have agreed to work. We need one volunteer minimum per shift to start off with, however extra coverage during periods that there is a badge free would be appreciated! For additional details, please message @Sarah, @NodnarbDude or @Ceraph1216. Volunteers will receive ongoing updates and instructions throughout the week and during the convention. Thanks so very much for donating your time and energy for the kids! RESOURCES I will post additional transit resources closer to the date of the convention.

    The University Village Microsoft store is doing another Extra Life stream for Seattle Children’s! The event is July 1, 2107, from 9:30am-9:00pm. They will have 4 streamers playing the very popular game PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, co-streaming through Mixer. The game is a Mature title, so the event will be 18+, and the stream team is Who Watches The Overwatcher's?. The event space will be open for other people to play games as well, with 12 gaming laptops and XboxOne-Games units.

    COVERAGE This is our first time at a major Magic the Gathering event, and we're very lucky to have the support of an industry giant like Star City Games! Final details for this event will be developing this week. Please RSVP on this page if you intend to help, and comment with which times you are available. Further instructions will be provided throughout the week, and if you intend to volunteer and @Sarah doesn't already have your cell phone number, please PM it to her to coordinate badge/ID transfer. All volunteers will be provided with a laminated Extra Life Baltimore Guild 2017 ID Badge. This alone will not get you into events, but will help identify you as part of our group. You may keep your ID badge and lanyard to reuse at future events. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE BADGES PROVIDED BY THE EVENT HOME UNLESS OTHERWISE INSTRUCTED, as these badges may be shared among volunteers.. We are in need of volunteer coverage for the following windows: Saturday 7:30 am - 10:00 am includes setup, this shift is tentative and my begin earlier @Ceraph1216 (partial coverage for setup) 7:30 am - 8 pm includes setup and breakdown, end time is tentative and may leave earlier @Sarah 9:30 am - 1:30 pm @NodnarbDude 1 pm - 8 pm includes breakdown, end time is tentative and may leave earlier @Taco_Girl Sunday 7:30 am - 2:30 pm includes setup @Ceraph1216 10 am - 3 pm @LittleSith 12 pm - 7 pm @NodnarbDude 1 pm - 8 pm includes breakdown, end time is tentative and may leave earlier @Sarah PARKING Please plan on parking 1 hour prior to your volunteering shift. Traffic in the city gets heavy in the late morning. It may be harder to find unoccupied spaces in garages if the weather is nice. Please reference Google Maps to assist you in locating a parking garage close to the convention center. The Sheraton parking garage is most convenient and obvious as you turn in on Conway (not marked on this Maps search), however it fills up very quickly.

These parking expenses will not be reimbursed, however they can be written off at your end-of-year tax return as volunteer expenses. Please be sure to request a receipt if you use cash-paid event parking. Retain a copy of your receipts for your tax records. PUBLIC TRANSIT The Baltimore Convention Center has it's own light rail stop with service from the Red, Yellow, and Blue lines. MARC Trains run into Baltimore from more distant county departure points, and stop nearest to the Baltimore Convention Center at Camden Yards, which is a comfortable walking distance of several blocks. For further information about using public transit, please visit the Maryland Transit Authority website at https://mta.maryland.gov/. If choosing the Light Rail, it is suggested that you purchase a day pass. You can also message @NodnarbDude with public transit questions. IF YOU INTEND TO USE PUBLIC TRANSIT, PLEASE BE AWARE OF HOURS OF SERVICE BEFORE COMMITTING TO A SHIFT. Volunteers who will be taking buses or trains to the convention will incur transit expenses. These transit expenses will not be reimbursed, however they can be written off at your end-of-year tax return as volunteer expenses. Retain a copy of your receipts for your tax records. EXPLORING THE EVENT OR PARTICIPATION IN OPEN PLAY Before or after your volunteer shift, if your badge does not need to be handed off to another volunteer, you are welcome to explore the event.

This is happening during a tournament style event. Let players approach the table and connect with them at that moment. a. Do not be overly loud, please respect the tournament participants. 2. Do not wander in the play area during the rounds, or during the time between rounds. This is the player's space and we have been invited into it. 3. Do be friendly and be creative in giving examples to Card game players about what they can do to help out their local CMN Hospital: UNM Children's Hospital. 4. This can become a regular recruiting opportunity for us in the future. If you have any questions Ben is the GM for Active Imagination and runs the tournaments at this location. 5. Have fun, if you don't know how to play magic, engage players to learn more about the game, magic players love to talk about what they love to play! If you wish to head up this event, please contact myself, Matt, or Chris about needs and equipment. Someone will need to pick up the table supplies on Thursday, and there may be time on Friday to do so as well. Active Imagination is located: 11200 Montgomery Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87111 Our setup time is before the tournament gets underway and ends before the tournament ends so that way we are not too intrusive.

    Meeting at Bobby's House. We'll discuss upcoming events and ways we can help the guild followed by some gaming and socializing. Bringing a snack or shared dish is welcome but not required. I'll have a grill going (with Propane to avoid a repeat of the picnic :)). Sorry for those who can't make it due to Father's Day.

    We run an annual 24 hour board game marathon, partnered with Extra Life to support The Barbara Bush Children's Hospital, our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. On April 30, 2016 we will be holding our third event and we would like to make it an even larger success than last year. Our event consists of many different ages and skill levels of players. We hold demo sessions, play to win events, door prizes, raffles, tournaments and other fun games. The day is mostly open for players to meet and get together for games. Last year around 150 people attended the event. In the past local businesses and companies have donated towards our raffle or directly donated to our cause, be it money, food, or supplies and services. Last year we were able to raise $5600 that went directly to our local hospital. This year we have created our new "brand" – the Chits and Bits Game Marathon- but it's the same great event. April 30th-May 1st, we'll be camped out at Crossroad Games in Standish for another 24 hours of gaming!

    Black Friday. The name itself calls up images of mobs rushing stores, fanatic shopping, and greed. I choose every year not to participate and while everyone else stands in lines and waits up to get those super sweet deals, I will be doing a 12 hour marathon for Extra Life. If you are out there standing in those lines, whip out your phone and tune into my stream and give me some love. http://www.twitch.tv/daddywarrbux ,from 12:01am to noon friday. Hope to see you there!

    Hey all, Sorry for the delay in getting this up, but I've been on vacation for the past couple of weeks. Can't believe the big day is less than a week away!!! Ahhhh!!! Anyways... We're going to hold our final meeting before the big event this Tuesday, the 3rd at our normal location. Duke Hospital Offices 710 West Main St.Durham, NC 27701 @Kommander Keri and myself have a conference call with the event coordinator of The Frontier earlier in the afternoon to go over the final plans for the 7th. If you have any specific questions about the location, load-in, etc, let us know and we'll get them answered for you! During the meeting we'll be going over all these details and making sure we have all our checklists done. This will probably be another quick meeting, so I'm once again going to propose that we walk down the street and spend some more quality time together. Sound good? Hope to see you there. Again, sorry for the short notice. If you're unable to attend, we'll get the meeting notes put up ASAP for you all. -Andrew
