    What is everyone playing?

    I got roped back into Destiny 2 when the Forsaken expansion was released this past September. After playing it exclusively these past two months I am starting to feel the pull to play a different game, but we shall see. There's still so much for me to do in Destiny 2.

    It's quite dusty in here, Pyro! Hopefully we can change that.

    Your 2018 Extra Life Stories!

    I feel that as a Guild this was an off-year for Extra Life Winnipeg but I would still say that it was a successful year. We were not able to organize a public gaming event for Gameday like we have in years past but we were able to bring awareness to Extra life to a new demographic. On November 3rd, 2018 we were invited to participate in the first-ever Video Game Night held by the Manitoba Moose. We were able to set up a table and talk to attendees about Extra Life during the game. We had a number of parents and their kids participate in a game of Blades of Steel and we also had our own 1v1 Blades of Steel matchups being recorded while we were there. As I write this, I am very excited to hear that over $41,000 was raised for the Children's Hospital Foundation of Manitoba in 2018 through Extra Life.

    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.

We touched up on a number of ideas and events that we have been confirmed to take part in. We have received confirmation that we will be hosting a panel and have a booth at Ai-Kon 2016 Graeme will be on 102.3 KISS and 92.1 CITI fm to promote Extra Life later in March We have offered to team up with the Retro Gamers United team to organize RGU 2016 with all proceeds going to CHFM We are also going to work with C4 to have a portion of the proceeds go towards CHFM. Across the Board and Shwarma Khan would like to attempt a North American World Record of having the most players simultaneously playing a single game of Settlers of Catan Winnipeg's Costume Alliance would like to work with the Children's Hospital this year Gary asked for a list of the events that the Extra Life Guild will be going to and they will promote our presence on their social media outlets. ELU Connections We're going to directly compete and collaborate with the Saskatchewan Guild throughout the year either through online or local events. The Saskatchewan Guild president has connections with the Saskatchewan Rough Riders and will be organizing our very own "Banjo Bowl" with CFL players. We have a contact at Microsoft who is willing to send out equipment for us to use for our own Game Days Other developments This year we will stick to handing out Extra Life Buttons and Extra Life D6 to people at events that we attend instead of pamphlets/brochures. Graeme and Shawn @Pyro199 will attempt three 24 hour gaming marathons in 2016 to generate more fundraising Graeme met up with a Facebook friend after finding out that their daughter has started cancer treatment. 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 premiered the #DominicStrong Campaign video which is a story about the Rooney Family and their involvement with the Children's Hospital and Extra Life.
