    Atlanta Guild Meeting

    Join the Guild as we play games and talk about what's next! We're getting to spend the evening at Battle and Brew! This is our last meeting of the year! Come hang out with us and lets share our stories about this year's Extra Life 24 hour marathon! When: Sunday, December 13th at 7:00 pm Where: Battle and Brew

  15. Random thought! What about the idea of an Atlanta Guild Skype group? Not for general discussion or anything, but I was thinking more for video conferences if the majority of members couldn't make it to the monthly face to face meeting. I'm all about in person meet-ups and continuing to talk through the forums, so it wouldn't be in replacement of that - I just figured if you found that only 1 or 2 people were going to the Atlanta meeting one month, you may be able to get more members to join in on a group call instead. We awesomely started posting recaps of these meetings on the forums for those who missed out, so that has helped a lot and can continue to be sufficient. I was just throwing this out there for open discussion. Feel free to shoot it down - I'm not sure of any regulations that may prevent this or anything like that. Thanks!
  16. Hi everyone! Since things have slowed down and we've all enjoyed a well earned rest after our year of fundraising, I thought it would be a good idea to get each other pumped and ready for next year! Fundraising is soon to end for 2015 and I'd love to hear some of the lessons you learned this year in your adventures with Extra Life - or any new ideas you are bringing with you into next year's efforts! Happy Holidays! ♥
  17. Hello ATL! We are closing out the year with our last meeting at B&B! Come hang out with us and please RSVP to this link: so we know how many people to reserve space for! Let's have a great time and share our stories from our marathons! We also want to get a group shot of our guild! Come prepared to get your picture taken!
  18. Congrats team! We raised over $10,000 this weekend and gained 28 new participants...bringing our fundraising total to $34,174.00! Here's a patient video (showing off her infamous cape) bring a smile to your faces on this rainy Monday: Keep up the awesome work!!
  19. Team--I came across a great recruitment opportunity for us in January. Has anyone looked into attending the SMITE World Championships at the Cobb Energy Center? There's been about 10k+ participants in the past, so it looks like a great opportunity to promote Extra LIfe and recruit members!
