  1. First off, these covers are AWESOME!!! Subscribed! Have you thought about the idea or playing at a local place like Boxcar? They have musicians on their patio throughout the summer. I have a contact there that wants us to be a part of the tournament nights on Wednesdays. Maybe we could combine forces?
  2. I just got word that I was able to get a shift at work covered, so I'll be there for the majority of the day! Woo! Not sure if I'm just going to play Majora's Mask on my 3ds or bring my PS4 with me.
  3. Thanks for the clarification. I know you'll all continue to do an amazing job!
  4. Team, We're trying to get as much stuff on the calendar as possible and we need some more recruitment events for the next few months! Anybody know of anything coming up in the next few months we could have a presence at? Let's hear some ideas!

    All set up!

    Looks great! Loving the TMNT!
  6. Sounds great man! We'd be happy to help you find a place. Sounds like you've got a good start though. We've found that it's surprisingly difficult to find venues that are 1)Big enough 2) Have good internet 3) Are available for 24-hours and 4)Come at little to no cost. Do you have a contact over at state?
  7. RDU being a little nosey and checking stuff out. I LOVE the list of possible events for the year. VERY detailed. Excellent work.
  8. Some of us can't afford to buy the same game for TWO consoles! Hit up your fellow guild members and see if we can get something going!
  9. Greetings Richmond guild members! Raleigh/Durham President checking in! I think we talked about this last year, but are any of you interested in setting up a guild vs guild Rocket League session? We're holding a 12-hour marathon on the 26th of this month and I thought it would be fun to get a little competition going. Any takers?
  10. Our Vice President extraordinaire, @MajorLinux, needs two additional volunteers for the Oak City Comicon, on April 16th. Who can help out!? Click on the event page to RSVP.
  11. Our GUILD LANDING PAGE is up and running! This would be a good page to bookmark. It contains all of our contact info, upcoming events, recent forums posts and pictures, all in once place. It's also a nice short URL that you can give to people that might be interested in joining the guild! Neat!!
  12. Get ready to get your game on! Time for our first 12-hour marathon of 2016! Click on the event page for all the details! Are you coming out? What are you going to play!?

Please make sure you bring enough power strips/extension cords for yourself though.

    *IMPORTANT* DUE TO A LAST MINUTE CHANGE AT MY WORK, THE VENUE FOR THIS MEETING NEEDS TO BE CHANGED. WE WILL NO LONGER BE MEETING AT THE DUKE OFFICES. WE WILL NOW BE MEETING AT LEVEL-UP KITCHEN AND BARCADIUM IN DOWNTOWN RALEIGH. EVENT ADDRESS HAS BEEN CHANGED BELOW! APOLOGIES FOR ANY CONFUSION! Our April meeting will be back onto our regular schedule of "the first Tuesday of every month". Unless anything changes in the coming weeks, we'll be meeting at our usual location at the Duke Medical Offices. Date: Tuesday, April 5th Time: 7:00PM - 9:00PM Location: Level Up Kitchen + Barcadium: 126 S Salisbury St, Raleigh, NC 27601 Among other things, we'll be signing up volunteers for our busy April recruitment schedule + announcing who is filling our Secretary and Entertainment Committee positions.

New in 2016 Guild Entertainment Committee added to open positions Guild Landing Pages - This would be a good page to bookmark. Once complete it will contain our logo, contact information, upcoming calendar events + recent forums topics all on one page. This is also a handy URL to share with people. FB Group to be phased out - Not concrete date, but more than likely, come May, the FB group will be deleted. All communication will be done on the forums. This will effect all guilds, in-fact the recently launched guilds didn't receive one at all. This means that the forums will be even more important this year. Recruitment app for iOS + Android. This is great news. You can now download an app for your phone or tablet to sign people up for Extra Life on the spot! Now when you are casually speaking about the program with people, you can register them immediately.
