  1. Hey Guys, Do we have any information of what we are trying to fund with this year's efforts?
  2. Hello Everyone, Here are the meeting notes from our November Austin Guild meeting: Fundraising Update As of 11/21, we have raised $577,814. This contributed towards our lifetime total as a city to 1.4 million dollars! From our efforts this year, this enables Dell Children's Medical Center to purchase two 5 year old simulators, with the remaining of the funds going towards the ROSA. Please keep in mind that you can still help by recruiting, as fundraising continues on till the end of the year. Wrap/Launch Party There is a plan for a wrap/launch party in January that will include all the guild members and notable members of our Austin Extra Life community. Elections We are holding elections for Guild Officers positions for the coming year. The positions all include the President, Vice President, and Guild Secretary roles. It is encouraged that you review the Guild Handbook to understand roles and expectations. More details to come for self nominations. 2016 We are working on 2016 events. If you have any events or ideas that can help with Extra Life Recruitment, please feel free to let us know. We will be posting a list of potential events and sites for consideration for 2016. Remember that guild meetings take place on the 2nd Saturday of each month, unless stated otherwise. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to post on the forums. Thanks!

The store will be open for the full 24 hours and we love to see you there on the 7th of November. More details at http://www.gamingday.org TL;DR - 2 great events for Extra Life for a grand total of 48 hours in two weeks.
  8. This is a great idea. However, when it comes to bringing in Non-Microsoft related games, that's where things get a little challenging. We are finalizing a few bits of information on the Game Day event, and I'll be sharing them soon.
