    Guild Meeting Notes 6/6

    Guild Meeting June 6, 2018 1) Numbers: Money Raised - $11,320 Registered - 68 An obvious big jump in money from last month. This is because we got our donation from Dell late so it had to be applied to this year, not last. Besides the Dell money it's still about a $300 increase. Great job guys! Registration jumped around 20 people! This does not include the number of people that signed up at the Dell recruitment event. They still need to figured out how to transfer that to extra-life.org. So there are definitely still more coming 2) Game Day Got a good amount of people today. Casey and Marcus came by! Met a great family that actually has two kids in the hospital. Both of our TV's are "broken" aka jacked up a little bit. Jarrad is going to work on getting them fixed, or possibly getting new TV's donated via Microsoft, Dell, or Best Buy. Due to the 4th of July, the next Game day will be July 18th 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. 3) Volunteer Opportunity We're holding this on SUNDAY, June 24th at the hospital from 3 p.m. - 5 p.m. This will be kind of an introductory to the hospital and showing volunteer opportunities for the hospital. We'll also be teaching people "what's next" after they have signed up for Extra Life. This is something we want to heavily promote at Checkpoint as well. 4) Telethon The Telethon was this past Sunday. Big thanks to Brandon for staying the whole time. Setting everything up and even bringing one of his own TV's to use. He even got some air time and promoted Checkpoint! Lydia and Zot presented the check to the hospital and we had a couple of patients come and play some games throughout the day. 5) Checkpoint Tennessee THIS Saturday, June 9th 10 a.m. - 10 p.m. at Tech Hill Commons a. Friday Setup Lydia, Zot, Casey and Matt will be getting equipment from Dell at 1 p.m. and immediately setting up at Tech Hill. Rick will be coming around 2:30 to setup the boardgame room. Everyone please come and funnel in as you get off work on Friday. We'd like to have as many people help setup as possible and be as efficient as possible so we don't have to stay until well into the night (again.) b. Saturday Setup Setup on Saturday will start at 8 a.m. Please be there at 8 if you can for last minute things and just overall to make sure we're ready by the time people show up at 10 c. Registration Casey is handling registration. Since this is free we won't have to deal with Eventbrite again so the registration process should be pretty smooth. If anyone is able to help her with registration that'd be much appreciated. She'll have a checklist for anyone that mans the table while she's gone. We'll also be using the yellow wristbands again after people checkin d. Schedule/Stream We're on the national Extra Life page from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. If you're streaming during that time no profanity, no vulgarity, no games rated about Teen....yes that includes PUBG. We still have a lot of openings for people to stream so if you're interested, even a little bit, please sign up to stream, the schedule is on the discord channel. We'll be doing announcements and family stories every two hours. Because this isn't necessarily a fundraiser push we're not going to be focusing as much on money. We'll be talking about getting more involved in Extra Life and recruitment. e. Equipment If you have "spare" consoles or games that can be setup to play please bring them. We'll have 20 TV's so let's try to have a console on each of them so kids and just pick them up and play. f. Giveaways Giveaways will be done by social media interactions. They'll be done at registration. 1 like = 1 ticket, 1 share = 1 ticket, etc. etc. Giveaways are a little slim this year, but that's okay because we want to overload in November. g. Food Lunch from Panera at 1. Dinner from O'Charley's at 6:15. Big shoutouts to Brandon for coordinating all the food stuff. If you have any questions concerning Checkpoint this weekend please feel free to post it in the discord channel or email Lydia at lydia.mitrevski@gmail.com! 6) Next Meeting - June 11th Time and Location TBA Don't forget to join the discord channel! discord.gg/extralifenashville Like us on facebook: facebook.com/extralifenashville

    Guild Meeting Notes 5/2

    Guild Meeting May 2, 2018 1) Numbers: Money Raised - $1,065 Registered - 43 -If you haven't registered for 2018 go do it now! You don't have to be a member of the guild team, but make sure you're registered! 2) Extra Life Social Media/Community Page We have a Facebook "Like" page and now we have a Facebook "Group" page. Extra Life - National has created groups for all guilds. Make sure you join it! https://www.facebook.com/groups/ExtraLifeNashville/ We're going to try to utilize the community page more for things like updates and meeting notes. We have a guild email!! If you need to communicate with Lydia, Marcus, or Casey it's best to contact this email so we can all see it! extralifenashville@gmail.com 3) Game Day with Kids Game Day with Kids is the first Wednesday of every month from 12 p.m. - 2 p.m. at the hospital. Most of the time it's on the stage next to Seacrest Studios, but at times it's in the game room near the patient rooms. 6 kids today!! We need more participation from the guild. Having more kids than volunteers is a GOOD problem to have. We understand this is in the middle of the day, but check with your employer as some companies provide time off for volunteer hours, match donations, etc.. Next game day will be June 6th. The date in July will most likely change because of the 4th of July. We may look into changing the time frame for this to make better availability for volunteers. 4) Open Secretary position We currently have a leadership position open for Secretary. If you're interested please let Lydia, Marcus, or Casey know! 5) Microsoft Events The Microsoft store in Green Hills has regular tournaments and events every weekend. They've expressed they would allow us to come to a couple of tournaments and talk about Extra Life, promote Checkpoint. We have a spreadsheet of opportunities. You don't have to stay for the whole event. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12j8TtqP6dll-WSPOwcycyXiTLT4cmxf1wiNt1T7WGbE/edit?usp=sharing 6) Checkpoint Tennessee June 9th 10 a.m. - 10 p.m. at Tech Hill Setup Friday evening time is TBA, and Saturday morning at 8 a.m. We have to be out by midnight. Everything will be very similar to Game Day in November. We're working on an event schedule. Gabe, Jonathan, and Matt will be working on the broadcast/logistics. If you want to be featured on the live steam, let Jonathan know. We still need sponsors, so if you know of any company, national or local, that might be interested please reach out to them! If they seem interested send them to us! We're putting together a folder on the GoogleDrive with some items you can utilize to help. Sponsorship packs, one pagers, etc. If you have any questions on how to reach out to your connections please let us know!!! 7) Volunteer Opportunity We're working on a communication plan for new Extra Life members. The second people register we want to have a plan of action for them to get involved. We got an idea from the Atlanta guild to do an "open house" twice a year for volunteers. We'd probably have it at the hospital and discuss how to get involved in the guild. We need to bring back sub-committees and if people don't want to be in them they can be general volunteers/recruiters for Extra Life. We want to try to do one soon after Checkpoint so we can advertise it AT Checkpoint. 8.) Next Meeting - June 6th at Tech Hill - Week of Checkpoint Tennessee Don't forget to join the discord channel! discord.gg/extralifenashville

    Guild Updates

    Hello Extra Lifers!!! It's been some time since we've utilized the community page but our guild is still thriving and growing! I wanted to just keep everyone in the loop about a couple of things whether you're brand new to Extra Life, a current guild member, or an old member looking to get involved again: -Guild Meetings: Currently we're holding monthly guild meetings the first Wednesday of every month at 6 p.m. They're USUALLY at Tech Hill Commons off of Nolensville Pike, but keep an eye on the event pages for any location changes -Game Days with Kids: Also on the first Wednesday of the month we meet at the hospital around Noon to play games with kids, whether they're patients or relatives of patients. This is a great opportunity to come and have direct outreach with the hospital if you're available! -Checkpoint Tennessee: If you remember last year we held a 12 hour marathon called Half-Life, well this year we're hosting another 12hr event but with a twist! In an attempt to unify all Extra Lifers in the state of Tennessee we're organizing Extra Life's Checkpoint Tennessee, a 12 hour gaming marathon! There are NUMEROUS CMN Hospitals around the state, but not all have active guilds. We're using this event as a way to promote all fundraising efforts throughout the state. The Nashville Guild will be hosting a local event at Tech Hill Commons and you can find out more info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1680394818693266/. The Knoxville Guild will also be hosting an event, with more details to come. If you or someone you know would be interested but can't make it to either location, no problem! Stream live from home or host your own local event! We can help with graphic elements just let us know! -Facebook Group: National Extra Life has made nice pretty public Facebook Groups for all the guilds! Make sure to join it to keep up to date on everything: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ExtraLifeNashville/ -Discord: We use Discord for about 90% of our communication, so the absolute BEST way to stay in the loop would be to join our partnered server. Discord has web browser compatibility so you don't HAVE to download the app: https://discorg.gg/extralifenashville PHEW. I think that's all for now. Keep an eye out on Discord and this community page as we're working on utilizing these outlets more. If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask!

    From Nashville to Dayton

    Hi Dayton Extra Life! My name is Lydia and I am the Guild president for the Extra Life Nashville Guild. I've been a member of Extra Life for some years now and as I moved to Nashville recently got involved with the guild here. I'm writing you today to ask for you help. My cousin was recently diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma and is being treated at Dayton Children's. She has been such a fighter and surprises us every day. We hear nothing but good things about her treatment at the hospital. I'd like to see if you guys have any events coming up (or if I can help plan any) that I would be able to attend. I'd like to come and support Dayton Children's in any way possible. Would love to hear from you guys, and thanks for being involved! l lydia.mitrevski@gmail.com
  13. Hey y’all! Your monthly Extra-Life Nashville Guild update coming at ya. At our last meeting, we went through goals and upcoming events. We’re going to start getting more involved with some local organizations and heading to tabletop gaming events. Stay tuned for more on that. Let’s go through the highlights of upcoming events! Wednesday March 1st - Monthly meeting will be at the same time (7pm), same place (Children’s Hospital) and we’ll have a lot to go over! Game Day with the kids will be this same day, 2-4pm as usual if anyone can make it Thursday March 17th & Friday March 18th - TEDx Nashville is a go! At the monthly meeting we will be assigning people to be in charge of scheduling and logistics. The TED people are very excited to have us involved and want to give us plenty of space/bean bag chairs/ table tops for games and possible streaming. Email Mark if you’d like to help work it. Tuesday April 4th - Drink 4 a Cause at Kung Fu Saloon! They’ll be donating 15% of sales from the day to Extra-Life. Email Lydia if you have any specific questions! Wednesday April 5th - This is won’t be our typical monthly meeting, but instead will be a Guild Kickoff meeting at the Children’s Hospital Theater! Food will be provided. Bring friends! Email Mark if you have questions, but hopefully we’ll get people from the night before to join us. See y’all in a few weeks for the next Monthly Meeting! We’ll be broadcasting again on Discord for anyone who can’t make it there. If there are any updates before the meeting, we’ll be sure to let everyone know! But in the meantime, all events are on our Community Calendar here. Laterz! Kristina (Spoety)
