  1. WOW! We had a few more people join the sign up sheet. this is really great and with AWA quickly approaching I will need to close "free ticket" for volunteer sign-up sheet at this time. However if you are already attending the event; and would like to donate a few hours of your time to Extra Life, the booth still has two open slots available for volunteers. Be sure to check out the Sign-up Sheet and put your name down for Friday 4 pm - 8 pm or Sat 2:30 pm to 6 pm. I would appreciate any help from our Extra Life gamers! Ding - Ding / Closed for free ticket sign-up. There is always next year! So I want to thank everyone that has signed up and volunteered your time. I am very grateful for your help and I am looking forward to meeting you at the event. So the Next point of discussion are the tickets. The Event was able to provide 2 full weekend passes and I had only two names signed up when this deadline occurred. Myself and Caity Cooperrider! Congrats for Signing up early Caity! Now as for the other volunteers I have passes for the day of your attendance, YEAH! No cost for a same day ticket!!! Congrats to: Corey Dawson, Shannon Landers, Nadya Poon, and Quanita Tate! Each of you will need to show up about 15 minutes prior to your time slot and you will have use of the badge for the remainder of the day. HOWEVER; and I can not stress this enough, Do not take the badges home with you. You will need to return the badges to me before you leave the event for the day! Group discussion is our next topic. I will be sending out an email to the volunteer group to share some do's and don'ts while your at the booth/table. This will be your opportunity to ask questions and get any concerns you have about the event and your responsibility; while at the booth/table, answered by your Extra Life Leadership. If needed a conference call may be utilized to help answer any remaining questions, and your attendance will be greatly appreciated. This will be done within the week just before the scheduled event and will be shared via email with at least one weeks notice. So call may be scheduled on Sept 25th-28th, with an email notification no later than Sept 14th. Last minute questions can be addressed via email or phone text to the Atlanta Extra Life Leadership. Ok that is it for now! Thanks again to Caity for early sign-up and to our AWA volunteers for 2017!
  2. Hello Atlanta Guild! Time is fast approaching for this years AWA 2017 Anime Weekend Atlanta!!! Do you have your AWA tickets purchased already? SWEET and congrats; so would you be willing to spend a few hours of your time at the club table (for Extra Life) to help encourage other Con-goers to help Heal Kids for CHOA! Great then fill in your name on the sign-up sheet at the bottom of the page! Extra Life and CHOA together are a great team-up to help heal kids in Atlanta! Your time is important and I am sure you have a few stories you could share with other Anime fans. We would love to have your help at the Club table. No ticket purchased yet! Well we just happen to have a few FREE tickets to give out, but they are going fast! So be one of the first few to put your name on the sign-up sheet (link at the bottom of the page); so you can help inform the masses of our Awesome 24 hour Gaming Marathon for Extra Life, we could sure use your help! If the free tickets are gone but you're still feeling like spending some of your hard earned cash to see Anime Action at its best and cause you just can't sit still with all your Anime Power build-ups, then head over to the ticket purchase area and buy a ticket! Then toss your name on the sign-up sheet. We love having all the help we can get at the Club Table! This is another great recruitment opportunity for the Atlanta Guild & CHOA to get some face time with the public and get some Anime fans signed up for Extra Life. A club table means we are given the opportunity to talk about Extra Life to the Con goers and get registers for the Extra Life Marathon. We can not sell items or gather donations for Extra Life. It is against the Club Table policies! Please lend your support by signing up to cover some of the hours listed in our sign-up sheet below! #ForTheKids Sign-Up Sheet!

    Prospect List

    @K8Morosky Our connections through MomoCon are paving the way for DragonCon! We are still working this angle but the behemoth remains just out of reach. Believe me when I say the Atlanta Guild has been trying to corner this Con since our inception. Every time we think we have it cornered it hits us with a huge tail lash and lumbers off! But we are are still motivated and dedicated to getting this Con on our Prospect List!

  9. DREAMHACK 2017 Extra Life Atlanta Guild will be at DreamHack 2017 this year! Another record setting event for the Atlanta Guild is set for July 21-23. This sweet gaming event will have tournament players flying in from all over the globe! Extra Life will be there to recruit and also to actively accept donations. Those who volunteer to work a shift (no more than 5 hours max per shift), will receive a free same-day general admissions badge to the event so that you can experience DreamHack 2017 in person! Atlanta Guild will also have access to discounted ticket prices on 3-day passes & BYOC passes! The event features world class esports events, DreamExpo, cosplay and a celebration of all things Internet. Extra Life Atlanta Guild will have a 10' x 10' booth for this event.

Also, this is a first come first served event, and we have a limited number of passes available (4/day), so if you are interested you should sign up sooner rather than later! I will be onsite throughout the event, and I look forward to working with everyone. Let's set the bar high for our first year at DreamHack!!!

    Prospect List

    Whew! ok Much needed updates to the Prospect list. We have trimmed it down, but I am sure there will be more adding this week. These were the events we had the most success with last year. The Leadership team is hoping to focus on just a few events this year. We will be looking for some much needed volunteers to help with each event. Check your calendars and start making plans to help volunteer. MomoCon is just around the corner, so be watching for a sign up sheet this week!
  12. Very cool! excited to see everyone again. I am looking forward to some Dragon Talons, YES!
  13. So I was able to sign up 10 gamers from this event. I had a lot of good conversations with each and all of them were very interested in gaming for charity. I am thinking we will have good participation from each sign up. There were 3 that were out of state and playing for their local hospital that they found on the Hospital drop down selection. So that is 7 gamers for Atlanta. While I was there I did not have Kontrol Freak stop by, but they may have been there for the evening tournaments which are the more popular. I really enjoyed my time there and felt that we had good exposure for this gaming event. I would definitely recommend we attend next year!

  23. We had a great time at this Event and there were so many people, and they were a well mannered bunch full of smiles and laughs there COS player too! We signed up 6 registers there at the event but handed out about 40 flyers. Not many of them had heard of Extra Life so we definitely got the word out by just being present. We were the only table at the event other than the Zelda loot vendor, so we had a lot of foot traffic with questions and even some wanting to give donations right on the spot. Take a look at the photos I uploaded to the fb page! or my fb page too
