    March 2018 Guild Meeting recap

    Hey Everyone Sorry I've Been slacking posting the meeting recaps between seasons but here we go again! This i the recap for Yesterdays guild meeting! Attendance-7(6 in person 1 via discord) Awesomecon Our first order of business was discussing Awesomecon! Awesomecon is March 30th-April 1st this year at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, 801 Mt Vernon Pl NW, Washington, DC 20001 This is Easter weekend just to let people know. We have now gotten confirmation for this event. though Sarah had mentioned in order for us to be here the Con itself had a couple of requests we weren't use to so there is a slight possibility that we wont have a table but we are planning everything just to be ready. if we receive notification of changes we'll let you know just keep this in mind if you volunteer for an early friday shift. If you are able to volunteer for this Convention and were not at the meeting please post in the thread below. the volunteer availability we have so far that I recorded at the meeting is as follows Friday Drew John(later shifts) Artem(after 2 pm) Brandon(myself)(after 4pm) Saturday Sarah Drew John(later shifts) Brandon(myself)(after 1pm) Sunday(EASTER) Sarah Artem If you can volunteer for this event and we don't have you listed (or if your times change) please let us know! also we have only 2 badges for this event so we will probably have to trade off badges. some of the strategies we talked about for this con are: -to make sure we are being as engaging as possible to everyone walking by our table -possibly having some gaming going on to entice people to come to our table(if we have the space an enough volunteers we could have a small card game of sorts going on. -Having a video on display with pictures and/or text about Extra Life(want to give a shout out to Artem for volunteering to use his video editing skills to help make us a video!) Guild Elections It was unanimous to keep our current officers who are President-Drew Nicolo Vice President-Sarah Wilson Secretary-Brandon Wilson(me) and as an unofficial role Duke of Social Gatherings of Common Interest -James Devno Goals for 2018 Participants-1,000 Dollars Raised-150,000 Name Badges Sarah had name badges for everyone and we were swore in using them and pledging to do all we can for the kids! Awards Sarah had awards made for last years volunteers and handed them out. she still has some for people who couldn't attend this meeting New tactics or 2018 We are going to be trying to do one new thing a month as a guild and see if these things yield results.This months new thing is to go to GameStop stores and see if they have any of swag(things like posters for preordered games that the receive to many of) Everyone at the meeting pledged to try to make it to one GameStop before next meeting to see how this goes. if you weren't at the meeting and would like to participate please feel free to do so. I believe we are going to be having a script worked on if you don't feel comfortable going up to strangers and talking with them. We were thinking of going to movies on opening weekends for the new thing in May. more on that later. New things to look into Universalcon(April27th-29th) Board and brew for Social gathering Escape rooms for Social gatherings For more on social events/gatherings and/or to share ideas please contact James(The Duke) Next Meeting April 21st We are going to try to meet at the Family Game Store in Savage Mill(NOT AT THE HOSPITAL) we've talked about having some meeting at other locations and since a good portion of our volunteers live much further south than Baltimore we are going to be giving this a go. Exact location could change. We'll keep you posted!

    August Guild Meeting Recap

    Hey everyone this is the recap for yesterdays guild meeting! attendance-8(9 if you count Sarah's friend she dragged along XD) Start time-12:07 We had a short recap of Artscape. I Believe we signed up about 80 people this year. Upcoming Events This meeting was primarily focused on talking about Otakon since it's our biggest event of the year and it's happening next weekend the 11th-13th! First off Otakon had contacted us before we even contacted them this year. they seem really excited to have us which is awesomesauce! We have 5 volunteer badges to use this year(last year i believe we had 2) our space is gonna be spacious to say the least. 12ft by 24ft If you didn't get a chance to attend the meeting and are able to volunteer we could always use extra help for this event. here is the link to the calendar page. We were trying to come up with some cheap ideas for things to raffle off. and/or some things to have on our second table. let us know if you guys have ideas! thing we wil already have at the booth are the prize wheel with prizes like dumdums, hard candy, rubber bracelets, and temporary tattos. we'll have the tablets ofcourse to sign people up. we were thinking of having a slideshow on loop. we will have the 2 pieces of artwork that trip did on display and we might even have print copies to give out to people that register. (also side note Cynthia is going to send out the call for artwork from our other hopkins kids so for future events we could have a collage of artwork. Check out our mega events thread page for more events you can help out at! http://community.extra-life.org/forums/topic/6854-con-season-2017-baltimoredc-recruiting-events-megathread/ Events to look into next year these are some events we will look into contacting around september or so of this year to get into for next year. Katsucon (Feb. 16th-18th 2018) Magfest (Jan. 4th-7th 2018 as well as other times during the year)-Sarah has put in the request for this so lets hope for a favorable reply Super Smash Con - this conflicts with Otakon this year so maybe next year Smithsonian SAAM Arcade at American Art Museum Awesome Con The numbers so far Last year Dollars raised-$9,453 Participants Registered-313 This year Dollars raised-9,400 Participants Registered-330 Cynthia always stresses not to worry about dollars raised until near November as most of the donations come in the last couple weeks. Brainstorming Ideas Some of these weren't disscused at this past meeting but i want to keep them in the posts so we remember them -we may look into setting up a video conference at some point for the meetings incase people can't make it in. more on this probably after con season. -It seems quite a few of our regular meeting attendees live in southern Maryland so we may try to alternate meetings at some point. like having every other one at the hospital an maybe in bowie or somewhere near there. we wont worry about it until after august with otakon coming up but if anyone has any good ideas for places in the bowie area we might be able to hold meeting feel free to share with us! -Guild social activity. we may try to do some sort of streaming event as a social event since everyone has such busy schedules but it will probably be after con season at some point -getting water bottles with extra life stickers/logo for next year perhaps Next Guild Meeting Our next meeting will be via conference call September 16th at 12pm the number is 888-651-5908 and the code is 4916763 P.S. It was great to have James from the San Antonio Guild join us as well! it's always good to see new faces!

Attendence-7(one of which was via call in) start time 12:03 Upcoming Events -Prattcon July 15th This is a one day (6 hour) con at the Enough Pratt free library in Hollandtown. this is a pretty small con and so drew is going to man the table by himself. -Gamescape at Artscape July 21st-23rd We have a table for this year but we are still working out all the details with the people from gamescape/artscape. also we are looking into possibly having some hopkins kids art work on display at this and future events! (so cool) this is less then two weeks away so click the link below for more details! --Otakon August 11th-13th We have a table and need all the help we can get!

Follow the link for more details! -Washingcon September 9th-10th This is a table top convention. we are confirmed on having a table here. this will be our first ear attending this one so the more people that can try and help the better so we can get an idea of how busy it will be. we think the size of it is going to be just a bit bigger than the SCG Invitational but we'll probably have people who are more engaged! follow the link for more details! -Baltimore Comic Con September 22nd-24th we didn't discuss many details about this since its a couple months away but follow that link below for more details!

    June Meeting Recap

    hey everyone this is a recap of yesterdays meeting! Attendence-4 in person and one call in for a total of 5 start time 12:18 We had a recap of the SCG invitational. more info on that here .-Awesomecon-June 16th-18th Awesomecon is full this year. though we may be able to get a table for next year. we need to send in our submission for net year around November. -Prattcon July 15th Prattcon is a small one day con the the enouch pratt free library in holland town. we have a table this year and drew will be able to man this one by himself. -Gamescape at artscape July 21st-23rd We have a table for this year but are waiting to hear back about more details. -Arcade exhibit at the Smithsonian this is full for this year. we will have to try and start to coordinate something with them after august for next year. -Otakon August 11th-13th Otakon actually proactively contacted us this year(thought that was cool) we have a table and 2 passes to use for volunteers. check out the event page for more info! -Super smash con August 10th-15th this event is at the Dulles Expo Center, in Chantilly, VA. and takes place the same time as Otakon. it's unlikely that we'll have enough people to staff both events with Otakon being the higher priority for this year. but perhaps we can look into it for next year. -Blerd con june 30th-july 2nd Aaron let us know of Blerdcon which is a convention in DC that we might be looking into though since it's only 3 weeks away we may have to look into it for next year. -Novacon July 28th-30th Aaron also let us know about this con.This is a new con that was suggested to us that is in VA. we are looking into weathr it would be our territory or the richmond guilds and mayhaps we could work with them if it is. more etails on this as it becomes available. -Washingcon september 9th We are looking into this more details as it becomes available. Baltimore Comic con september 22nd-24th We have a table and 2 badges for this. more details as it gets closer. Sarah had a power point "Pitch Presentation" which she will also share at a later meeting. -The numbers so far- we have 200 gamers signed up(162 at this point last year) we have raised $5,210.24 so far(down from $6,591.10 at this point last year) though Cynthia stresses not to worry about the dollars raise this early in the year. most of our donations come in the last couple weeks before game day. also if we have more people registered and are able to register more over the summer at these events that gives a greater chance to raise more money for the kids! Our next guild meeting is July 8th at 12pm at the hospital. hope to see yall there!
