    August Guild Meeting

    Come join us for the August Meeting of the Extra Life Portland Maine Guild. This month the folks at the Complex in Scarborough are hosting us! See you there!
  4. I took notes for the meeting and committed the cardinal sin of not saving. So they're gone. If anyone has any questions about the July meeting please ask them here and I will answer them to the best of my ability!
  5. Hello to anyone who may be checking us out after Portcon! We hope you learn a lot over the next few months about Extra Life, and please feel free to ask any questions of us. If you want to take a moment, introduce yourself here!

    Huzzah! 2016


    Huzzah is a Historical Wargames Con. I have edited to add the signup link.
  7. Hey guys! It was great to see all of you at the Guild Kick-off this week! Going forward I want to start making not only a positive impact in our community for the kids but I want us to help each other out, as well. Tell me: What makes you get motivated to go out and start making a difference? Is that something you can share with others? I want to hear your ideas! -N

    Portcon Maine 2016

    It's that time of year again! We're going to need all the help we can get for Portcon so volunteer now so we can figure out what shifts we need to cover! Sign up here:
  9. Hey friends! What are your thoughts on taking advantage of a Community Table opportunity at a Sea Dogs game this year? It would be free and we'd have the chance to set up a table outside the stadium 30 minutes before the game begins. We'd also get 25 general admission tickets so we could eat our share of Sea Dog biscuits after our work is done. Let us know if you can help out today! Sign up here:
