  1. God its already September which means November and Gameday aren't too far behind! So out of curiosity(consider this a survey if you will), for those who can go through the 24/25 hours without having to switch games multiple times to keep themselves from getting bored or don't make schedules or anything like that, what are your favorite binge games and why?
  2. Normally for my fundraising I just ask friends, family, and co-workers for donations and occasionally stream during gameday. Recently, i was approached by some friends who are Lularoe consultants/vendors/sellers/whatever they are called and asked if i would be interested in hosting a fundraiser with them. The way it was explained to me was, i would help share word of the event on my personal fb page and via word of mouth to other friends, family, etc as well as they would via their sales fb page and then be on hand for the day to help host and be able to answer any questions about EL. Afterwards a certain percent of sales would be given to my campaign and if enough merchandise was sold then the main lularoe company would match it. The basic concept seems similar to what other people have done at restaurants who give a certain percent of the bill as donations but as I haven't attempted anything to that nature, just wanted to get thoughts/opinions from others. Thanks!

  4. Hello everyone! I really dont have any kind of schedule or stream anything in particular. Just trying to build a "community" really at the moment, www.twitch.tv/rfd4534 is my page. feel free to stop by and say hello whenever you want. any opinons or advice for my channel is always welcome.
  5. We are less than a month from what is going to more than likely be our largest and busiest event of the year. Last year alone we signed up nearly 100 people and I'm sure we can/will do even more this year. That being said, between running tournaments, helping patrons sign up or just interacting with them and informing them of Extra-Life, and allowing anybody who may just need to step away for a few minutes a break, we need bodies! Anybody who is willing to come out and commit some time to helping out Saturday or Sunday, please let us know. Setup and the vip event is Friday evening, I should be able to handle that alone but if anybody really wants to help they are welcome to for that as well. Include what day and time. Time slots for the weekend: Saturday - 10am - 6pm All day - Ben/Sarah, Ryan V, Ryan B, Jon, Zack M, Brian M Sunday - 10am - after 6pm (event ends at 6, but teardown and cleanup will be needed) All day - Ben/Sarah, Jon, Zack M Ryan V. until 3pm People who've expressed interest in attending: Brian K, Wesley, Ryan, Brian M, Victor S, Zack M
  6. Lucky you, I think ive actually gotten worse! I have noticed with all the games that sometimes it doesn't show I've earned any bees or that I even have any, then all of the sudden they all appear at once.
  7. I feel your pain, I'm not really having any luck either. Been showing to my friends, coworkers, family, guys at my fire company, twitter, facebook, mentioned during my streams, anybody I can think of..and response has been next to none but I'm gonna just keep on trying and see what happens. Oh and Congratulations again Zyaldar.
  8. @BeeTheSwarm I believe I registered during this period, is there something I need to do to claim my bees that I'm missing?
  9. March 20th, 2017 Attendance: Ryan(president), Ben(vice president), Jon(Secretary), Danielle(CMN Director), Wesley 2017 Kick-off Event 2.0: Will be held on Tuesday, April 18th at the Game Table Cafe with a starting time of 6:30. 4900 Carlisle Pike Hampden Center Mechanicsburg, PA 17050. http://www.gametablecafe.com/ CMN covering cost of cover charges and food for the establishment. Danielle to talk with Tom(owner) about advertising the event to his regular customers to draw in a larger crowd for the event. Ben is going over and reworking the powerpoint to help with its flow and make it go smoother Harrisburg Comic-con 2017: May 20-21st at Harrisburg Mall Attempting to have ad placement in event program Have been making attempts to get in contact for possible size and location of space to begin making plans and arrangements for whatever supplies we may need, as well as getting mentioned that we would be in attendance and hosting tournaments posted on the website and facebook pages for the event, however our attempts to get ahold of them have been unsuccessful. Similar to last year, 2 tournaments per day with open gaming in between is the current plan. Definite titles are: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (possibly done twice with different rules pending interest) Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch) Injustice 2 (Ps4) High score challenge (via Raspberry Pi) Various other games and consoles were suggested for the open gaming or possibly for tournaments as well. Danielle had a letter typed and sent out to businesses to try and obtain donations for prizes. Miracle Party: April 17th Ben and Sarah are handling running the event, however may be late and Jon is available as a backup if needed. Additional comments/events: The CMN telethon will be held on Monday June 5th this year. There will be no check presentation this time around, Ben was most disappointed to lose his chance of being on TV again. Ad and Flyers for Zenkaikon have been submitted. Allison will begin posting Extra Life related events on the Public CMN page so they may be seen and shared with anybody, whereas any created in the Extra Life FB group are locked to group only. The Kickoff event will also serve as the April meeting, the May meeting will be on May 15th and we have booked the Meeting Room at the Giant in Camp Hill(will post address as soon as i get it) to see if having it there instead of the Med. Center gets a better turnout for Guild Meeting Participation.
  10. Attendance: Ben(Vice President), Jon(Secretary), Sarah, Wesley, Danielle(Children's Miracle Network Director) Meeting did not begin until roughly 7pm due to excessive traffic flow in Hershey Danielle kicked off the meeting by showing a video about miracle child Deven Jackson that had received main stream coverage (recommend you take a moment to watch): http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-360/0ap3000000746261/NFL-360-Heart-of-a-Giant Also mentioned the partnership with CMN and Duracell and their new commercial, which you may have seen on T.V: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cECyJ4KN76Y Current Numbers were revealed(as of today): $33,077 with 371 members We are averaging 150 actual participants with about $89 per person. At this time we are around $4-5K down what we are last year, but still a few days left to get those last minute funds and add any offline donations that haven't been submitted yet. Extra lifer, Alex Altland will be doing his 24 hour Marathon beginning this Thursday thru Friday view-able at: https://www.twitch.tv/voidstormtv, Shout outs were given to everyone who came out and participated at the 25 hour event at Play-n-Trade as well as hosted their own events that weekend. Several Events for 2017 were discussed We are currently booked for: Harrisburg Comic con 2017- May 20-21st Nitty Con 2017- September 23-24th Possible events: Jubilee day 2017 Central PA comic con- April 1st-2nd Motorama- Feb 18-19th (The leadership had privately discussed passing on Motorama due to lack of interest from attendees of event, however it was suggested if we were in a better location than perhaps we would have more luck, Danielle's contact looking to get us a spot off Maclay street entrance) We were invited to participate in the "Miracle Party" by Danielle(sent via email after the meeting)- " i’m not sure if you’ve been invited in the past, but I wanted to share an opportunity for the Guild to participate in our annual Miracle Party. It’s a fun-filled day for our miracle families. A great representation of why you do what you do on behalf of Children’s Miracle Network. The party is the Monday after Easter, April 17. We’d need someone to be there from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (lunch is provided). It takes place at The Hershey Lodge. This would truly be a great way to just interact with our families. I know it may be difficult for your work schedules, but maybe this is a great way for Guild high school students (who will likely be off school) to participate" Any interest please let us know Other events will be added as announced Alongside these events was discussed the status of the guild, concerns are arising about lack of interest and availability outside the leadership and the same 1-2 members to attend meetings and assist with events. Under the Extra-life guidelines, there are term limits for leadership and lack of people to step into those rolls in concerning. Changing day, time, and location of meetings have been suggested and we are looking for any and all input in this matter from EVERYONE! Some suggestions were Monday nights instead of Thursdays, as well as changing locations from the Med Center to the Giant in Camp Hill that has a room available for use. We are aiming for January 23rd for the 2017 Launch event, A request has been sent to the national office for some sort of representation. More information on this will be coming as we have it.
