    Guild Introductions

    Hi All, I know we churned through some intros at the event and a few of us replied to the previous thread but I wanted to get an official thread going for it. Name: Trevor Brimson Years Doing Extra-Life: This is my 5th year Why I Extra-Life: I extra-life for my two daughters who have both spent time at CMN hospitals both here in London and Ottawa. Team(if any): Grumpy Old Gamers Other "Stuff": Hoping to be a driving force this year for growing the Extra-Life movement here in town. We have a huge opportunity in London and area and I hope we can capitalize on it as a group this year. Thanks, Trevor Brimson

    If you're recruiting specifically for people in the London area you may want to consider the CHF logo as CMN is a pretty big umbrella.

    Games for the Open House

    Certainly doesn't hurt to have an assortment. Mario Kart style easy access games are great for people. Overwatch is very popular right now. more to come.

    How do we make the forums more active?

    If you want another kick at the can by all means have at 'er. If you come up with another design we can have a good old fashioned which is better. Between the existing one and the yet to be unearthed one.

    How do we make the forums more active?

    I think you're probaboly right re: activity in the Toronto guild form being primarily action around being "new". That said, we do have a guild Logo. @Froink do you think you could post this to the forums again so anyone who's new could see it? I think starting a few threads about what game(s) guild members are currently playing would be great! It would give members a chance to connect outside of the normal guild routine and form some friendships with other members!

    Why I Extra Life!!!

    Hey Luc, Why I Extra-Life ---- I've answered this question over the years many times in a lot of different ways but I'll try to put down the most meaningful in this post. I first heard of Extra-Life from a co-worker when I lived in Ottawa. As an avid gamer I thought "hey great, gaming for 24 hours and a good cause. Sign me up." I did my fundraising for the year and felt good about the whole endeavor. The next year when Extra-Life time came around my wife had delivered our first child a few months before things really kicked off. My daughter spent a good deal of time at CHEO (Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario for those not familiar - In Ottawa) due to complications surrounding her heart and a severe G.I. issue that prevented her from feeding. While my daughter Lera ultimately overcame the challenges she faced as a newborn the time I spent there watching her and other children battle all kinds of conditions, illnesses and diseases made the drive for Extra-Life a far more personal one. I scoured my network and hit up strangers alike trying to raise awareness and funds for the hospital where my daughter received her life saving care. Following that year's event I knew Extra-Life would be something I would be involved in forever. I have continued to participate in the Extra-Life event annually and with the arrival of our second daughter (Zoe) who also has spent a good deal of time at Children's Hospital in London the need for Extra-Life and other CMN initiatives has never been more clear to me. I reached out to CMN and was put in contact with Perry Esler who filled me in on this "new guild program" --- a recruitment wing for Extra-Life with the gamers getting more gamers involved. I was excited. This was a chance to bring Extra-Life into the forefront and really expand the level of awareness. I was lucky enough to be elected as the president of the first London Extra-Life guild. Working with the Children's Health Foundation and CMN to take Extra-Life in London to the next level is something I'm incredibly passionate about both because I feel the cause is one that everyone can get behind and because CMN hospitals have had such a profound impact on my family. In short I Extra-Life because CMN, CHF and Children's Hospital were there when my family needed them. They can't provide the level of care that children need without help. This is one way that I can help. I'm going to continue doing everything I can in the hopes that other children will get the same benefit mine did. Sincerely, Trevor Brimson

    From Bench to Bedside Tour

    Copied from my post on the Facebook page for others to read: Hi All, I had the opportunity this week to join a Bench to Bedside tour at Children's Hospital put on by Children's Health Foundation. We got the chance to see the pediatric in-patient units on the 6th floor, the PICU as well as the Research Institute all of which are supported by our local foundation. It was an enlightening experience and one that I'd recommend anyone participate in if they get the chance. Also a huge thanks to our CHF reps for putting on the tour and taking the time to educate people about how the foundation operates and what it helps fund. Thanks again and if anyone has any questions I'll do my best to answer or point you in the right direction. Trev
