    Ai-Kon; Winnipeg Anime Convention

    until
    Extra Life Winnipeg will be at Ai-Kon to promote Extra Life in the community and recruit gamers to join. We will also be hosting a panel to explain what Extra Life is to Ai-Kon attendees. http://ai-kon.org/about/ Ai-Kon is a three-day event held during the summer, which runs around the clock from start to finish. Other than our focus on Japanese animation, comics and closely related media, the convention has branched off to include other events that have varying amounts of overlap with our attendees' interests. We host many anime convention staples, such as the cosplay masquerade, assorted video games with tournament prizes, and rooms for vendors and artists alike to showcase and sell their wares. Thanks to the diverse range of anime fans in the area, with each passing year we've been able to host panels and other events covering more ground in other semi-related areas, from Japanese Tea Ceremony and Aikido demonstrations from the Manitoba Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre to panels discussing the finer points of Go and ball-jointed dolls.

He donated his old, unused DS to her and also discovered that there are some gaming devices in the Children's hospital that are in need or repair. Graeme will reach out to the Sony and Microsoft representatives that he was put in touch with at ELU to see if there is something they can do. Extra Life's mobile sign up ap is now live. We are able to have people sign up using our smart device and once it is connected to the internet it will automatically upload the registrar's information to Extra Life and send them a confirmation email. This allows us to sign up people for Extra Life ANYWHERE We want to find out a way to give local themed tier rewards for people who raise money for the CHFM through Extra Life.

    Extra Life Board Game Day

    Hey everyone, On April 30th we will attempt to host a city-wide board game day and we need your help and ideas to be able to pull it off. Right now the idea is to try to encourage as many board game vendors/cafe/groups to play board games for 24 hours on April 30th to raise money for the Children's Hospital through Extra Life. We will be bringing this idea to the different outlets and then have an Extra Lifer at as many locations as possible answering questions about Extra Life, playing games, encouraging people to sign up and most importantly raising money! Please reply to this thread with any places/people we should get in touch with and with any ideas on what we should talk about, what games we should play, what challenges we should post, etc.

    2016 Guild Meeting - #2 February 10th

    Attended by @hoodedarche0, @kaptainkirk, @WarLordSith, @Sturbinator, Ben, David, Kyren, Daniel and Edreen. Before the meeting started the owner of Across the Board, Olaf, sat down with us to discuss Across the Board helping out with Extra Life either by hosting Extra Life events and/or fundraising on behalf of Extra Life. Graeme will touch base with Olaf and they will work on plans for the future but he seemed very eager and excited to help in any way he can. He also stated that he wants to host a "Biggest Catan In North America" game. We spent a majority of the meeting engaging in numerous discussions. The group seemed to be split to two sides of the table we were sitting at. We went over the ways that Extra Life is represented in the community and what the guild has done in the past and what we would like to do going forward. They sparked a number of different conversations about what type of events Extra Life would like to be a part of as well as what the guild would like to do for Extra Life Gameday. For the most part it was difficult to jot down everything that was brought up in our meeting but I managed to record the new changes that Extra Life is making as well as any other noteworthy subjects. Extra Life News They are starting 19 new guilds across North America Rick and/or Perry will be visiting Winnipeg to reconnect with the guild in the Spring There will be a mobile app for Extra Life which allows people to sign up online They are working with Google to simplify things like scheduling and directions They are rolling out a recognition system for guilds to show how we stack up with other guilds Guild Extra Life is encouraging guilds to appoint an entertainment committee that will be in charge of scheduling outings Guilds are suggested to revamp leadership every two years. Graeme said he's totally fine handing the position he has Event News/Developments Ai-Kon and C4 are both working on scheduling a panel for Extra Life which may have Rick and/or Doc fly in to talk Extra Life on our behalf. Other noteworthy news Extra Life is going to partner with AYB to have an active Winnipeg Twitch channel
