  4. Can you believe that Game Day has already come and gone? Is everybody still sleeping after gaming for 25 solid hours?! At this month's meeting, we'll chat about our unofficial Extra Life 2016 totals, what worked and what didn't for everybody's marathons, and plan our 2016 Holiday Party! The meeting will take place on: Date: Tuesday, November 15th Time: 7:00pm Location: The Blurry Pixel (Gaming and E-Sports Bar, located underneath Escape Manor) 201 Queen Street Special Instructions: This meeting will take place at The Blurry Pixel. Our guild meetings are always an ALL-AGES event, and open to all members of the public. There is no cost to attend this meeting at The Blurry Pixel (no stay and play fee!), 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 (video games and board games). What do YOU want to play this month? Bring your friends, and get your game on!
  5. Hi there CoEx! Welcome to the group! We'd love to have you join us at the Telethon. If you didn't already know, we'll be having our monthly meeting tonight at the Blurry Pixel. We'll be discussing the Telethon in more detail, and will be taking down names of participants tonight. If you can make it, I highly recommend coming out; if you can't make it, though, send me a PM and I'll make sure to keep you in the loop. That's a great idea, Sean! I'll make sure we do that!
  6. Alright folks, this is it! Ottawa ComicCon opens its doors to attendees in just over 24 hours. We're still looking for volunteers to help out Friday (tomorrow!) afternoon and Sunday morning. Can't help this weekend, but have an hour to spare tonight? WE NEED YOUR HELP! At approximately 6 PM this evening we will be moving a couch out of The Blurry Pixel at 201 Queen Street. This couch needs to be moved from the bar into a waiting cargo van. If you have some time spare, we could really use your help. Post here, message me, or just show up! Thanks guys!
  7. Finally, I can post again! Thanks, forum gurus Can't wait to see you guys on Sunday! If you know anybody who wants to help out, send them our way! We're still looking for volunteers on Friday and Saturday, passes included!
  8. Do you two have your own passes, or would you be using ours? If you need passes and want to work the same shift, I could put you both on Sunday from 12:30-5:00! If you have your own passes, I can slot you in to shorter shifts on both Saturday and Sunday
  9. Every year, a 24-hour fundraising event is held to raise money to help sick kids and their families who utilize the services at CHEO. This event is the CHEO Telethon, broadcast each year on CTV - hold up, did you think I was talking about Extra Life? Well, this year, Extra Life is joining up with the CHEO Telethon and we're getting our game on early at the EY Centre! That's right, the Ottawa Extra Life guild is looking for dedicated gamers of all persuasions to join us for 24 hours of gaming fun at the EY Centre during the CHEO Telethon! Consider it a practice run for Game Day, if you will! Have you got what it takes to game for 24 hours, knowing that your Hour 20 mugshot might end up on live television? We're still working out some of the logistics of our event, but we're anticipating room for approximately 20-25 people to help show Ottawa what Extra Life is all about. We'll have couches and consoles, computer stations waiting for your beast of a PC, the most perfect tabletops for intense Carcassonne sessions or pen and paper campaigns... If you want to play, we'll do what we can to help! Let's turn this into a discussion about what kinds of games you would want to do during the telethon, and what you would need to be comfortable for a marathon of Extra Life proportions! So when exactly is the Telethon? Gaming Setup - Saturday, June 4th: 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM Telethon - Saturday, June 4th to Sunday, June 5th: 7:00 PM - 7:00 PM Clean up - Sunday, June 5th: 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM So, with that all out of the way - will you join us? Are you a veteran Extra Lifer that wants to join us in gaming up a storm? Are you new to Extra Life and want to game with a group just as enthusiastic as you are? A word of warning - Though our area is not anticipated to be directly filmed, participants may be involved in the 2015 Extra Life cheque presentation or interviews, which will be shown on LIVE TELEVISON. We are also planning on streaming our side of the event live on Twitch.TV. This event is not for the camera-shy among us. Please respond to this post, or send me a message, and let us know if you want to participate. At this time, everybody who participates is expected to stay for the duration of the event - barring unforeseen circumstances, of course. There will be food available (more information to come later), and we will confirm shortly regarding personal snacks/drinks. All participants must be already registered for Extra Life 2016 - as Community accounts are not directly linked to your fundraising page, I will be contacting everybody who is confirmed to be attending to find their account. This is so that we can accurately track the fundraising of participants during the telethon while we discuss our initiative live on TV! Come on! Get your game on! TL;DR : 24 Hour CHEO Telethon = 24 Hour Extra Life event! What do you want to play? What do you need to make this a fun, successful weekend?
  10. Hello everybody! We're coming up fast on Ottawa Comiccon, the largest Ottawa-area geeky event of the year™. This is going to be our biggest opportunity to do some recruiting for Extra Life! Do you know what that means? We’re looking for volunteers once again! We need a minimum of two more volunteers per day of Ottawa Comiccon to help run our Extra Life booth - this way we have at least 3 people at the booth during our expected peak hours. We have our own booth space this year, Booth 227, and we'll be sitting comfy on a big couch - kicking back, playing games, and spreading the Extra Life word! We have a few transferable passes (daily basis) that our volunteers will be using. Shifts we’re looking to fill: Friday, May 13th: 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM Saturday, May 14th: 11:00 AM to 4:30 PM 12:30 PM to 6:00 PM Sunday, May 15th: 10:30 AM to 3:00 PM 12:30 PM to 5:00 PM 1:00 PM to 5:30 PM Please respond to this post, and let us know if you want to volunteer. In your post, tell us the days and the times you are available. We can provide a daily pass to those who are available to help out, but we have a limited number we can provide. If you're available for most of the day, but you just have to go to [insert celebrity photo session here], tell us that too! Volunteering doesn't mean you'll miss out on everything Comiccon has to offer - It means you'll get to enjoy Comiccon AND help out Extra Life! We can definitely move shifts around to make sure everybody has the best weekend possibleTM. If you have already purchased your tickets and are interested in volunteering, we want your help! If you are able to help out for an hour or two during down times in your schedule, we would love to slot you in. The more people to help out, the more fun everybody gets to have, and the more we are able to engage with the community! Ideally, we will have five people signed up for volunteer shifts on each day. This way, nobody is stuck volunteering for 6+ hours without getting to explore and enjoy Comiccon. What are our goals? As of the beginning of May, CHEO had 52 Extra Lifers signed up in support, with a total of $935.00 raised. As we mentioned at the last meeting, our main goal is to increase our participant numbers - every person we register brings in an average of $100 for CHEO! Leading up to Comiccon, try to focus on the "low hanging fruit" - friends, family members, coworkers, anybody who has shown an interest in participating, but just hasn't registered yet. If every member of the guild can get 2-3 people signed up, we'll have doubled the number of participants with 6 months left to go. Then, add those numbers to the people we hope to recruit at Ottawa Comiccon. Last year, we recruited approximately 200 people during the weekend - this ended up being half of the total people registered for 2015! This year, we have our own booth space and a much larger Extra Life presence. Let's blow last year's numbers out of the water! As with last year, our goal is to engage every single person who comes to the booth, and help them to register right then and there. So what are you waiting for?!
