  1. 4/19/2019 – The Comic Signal Members attending: Bryan, Jen, Erik, Issac, Ashley, Adam, Amy Agenda Summary items: Prior meeting summary - Jen Review handouts – Amy - Positions - Budgets/goals - Resources - Communication General discussion – all Committee – Jen Positions – primary positions are President (Jen), Vice-president (Erik), Secretary (Bryan/Lisa). The formal responsibilities under these positions has been largely disregarded in favor of a more casual sharing of the load. Budgets/goals – Amy has completed some numeric breakdowns for some initial goals for the guild. Please see a member or ask on discord if you want to see these values again. Resources – Amy spent made it very clear we have support from the foundation to accomplish our fundraising goals, including event planning, designers, materials, and so on. Communication – Numerous emphasis on communication and social media use. o Email blasts o Facebook – foundation and children’s hospital o Event linking/advertising o Where appropriate, potential partner sharing o Include Amy with any ideas of how she or the foundation office can be of help! General discussion – There was great discussion on a wide variety of fundraising possibilities, expanding on the prior meetings and getting further details into the events we discussed. Potter in the park and Coast guard festival are a definite GO. We worked on some of the details and expanded how the Foundation can assist in making this a better experience and capitalize on the opportunities. An example includes overcoming security/technology concerns by having locked down Foundation web devices accessible for booths. For GrandCon we’ll need to come up with a few ways to propose improving the gain for our volunteer time/effort. The game day discussion had a wide variety of ideas – including having it at another location, better integration of eSports, improvements in fundraising. Much of the conversation also centered around adding a new targeting a audience –families with one or more individuals who like the game, rather than just the more predominate high school/college age individuals. We are going to try and start having many months with a fundraiser and a greater number of volunteers. Some events include: - Panel on streaming (game focused) - eSports college competition - High school competition - Dice promo at certain events - Including miracle network kids and their stories at select events Jen introduced the idea of creating committees specific to our favorite gaming type – currently board games, RPG, and video games to advise and organize based on their passions. Next meeting May 17th at The Comic Signal
  2. Extra Life Meeting Agenda/ Minutes: Location: Butterworth Hospital; Rm 1710D Date: 3/22/19 Time: 6:30pm Members attending: Jen, Erik, Phil, Bryan, Michael, Ashley, Lisa, Brandon, Rugrats Agenda topics & details: 1) Guild Status i) Leadership Changes (1) Interim officers – Jen/ President (2) Elections ii) New hospital Liaison – Amy Larson At the February guild meeting, Phil announced that he was most likely stepping down and taking some time off. We announced that this had officially taken place and that Jen had stepped in as interim president until the role could be filled. Erik nominated Jen for the position, and it was seconded by Bryan and Mike. She accepted with the understanding that due to other obligations, she would need assistance planning any events. Erik will keep his position as vice president, and Bryan and Lisa will step in to handle secretary duties as needed. It was also announced that due to restructuring within the Spectrum Health foundation, Jim would no longer be our liaison, and we would instead be working with Amy Larson. Jen will reach out to her and schedule a meeting to touch base. 2) Guild Goals i) Fundraising ii) Events iii) Meetings iv) Game Nights The guild discussed which events they would like to have on this year’s schedule. Our initial list includes Potter in the Park, Coast Guard Festival, GrandCon, GR ComicCon, and Game day. Further discussion needs to take place once we get a better idea of individual availability and fundraising opportunities. Due to scheduling conflicts, Jen suggested that we move the game nights to the same night as our guild meeting, and that the location change from the hospital to The Comic Signal. Attending members agreed that this would be more convenient. 3) Volunteering i) Training revisited ii) Benefits of volunteering This topic has been tabled until we have a better idea of our 2019 event schedule 4) Open Discussion Several marketing ideas were tossed around, including doing “Why We Extra Life” videos and ways to improvement our reach with Facebook Next meeting – April 19th at 6pm at The Comic Signal

    Interested in being more involved with Extra Life? Come on out to our monthly guild meeting! Our meetings are open to everyone. Meeting will start between 6:00 - 6:15pm and usually last about an hour. After the meeting is over, we play games! If you just want to play games, you're welcome to come out too! We usually start games around 7:00 - 7:15pm and play as long as we like (until the store closes, anyway). We pick three featured titles each month, and The Comic Signal has been kind enough to offer players a 15% discount should they decide to take one of them home. It's a great way to learn new games and meet new gamers!

    THIS EVENT IS FROM 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM EST. If you are not currently logged into a Community forums account, or if your account is registered in a time zone other than Eastern, the time of the event may appear to be different. The Guild Kickoff meeting is a great place to meet other Extra Lifers - both those who volunteer with the Extra Life Baltimore Guild and those who support our local hospital, Johns Hopkins Children’s Center! Washington, D.C. area Extra Lifers are also encouraged to attend as there is not currently an active D.C. Guild, but we are helping Children's National to cover D.C. area events! Thanks to the hard work and dedication of Extra Lifers and Extra Life Baltimore Guild volunteers, we raised over $111,000 for Johns Hopkins Children's Center in 2018! We also helped Children's National grow their fundraising year-over-year for a total of $116,000! We'd love to celebrate this success with you, hang out, hear your stories, and tell you more about why we work so hard at conventions in the area throughout the year. Lunch and family friendly board games will be provided, and you're welcome to bring your own games to play!

  9. 1. Numbers Money Raised - $13,734 (up $1,350 from last month) Participants - 142 (up 22 from last month) 2. Game Day with Kids Next game day will be November 7th from 12-2. December's will be on the 5th from 1:30 - 3:30. 3. Game Day November 3rd We need EVERYONE to go and fill out the registration form for Game Day ASAP! Setup on Friday is 3 p.m. - 6 p.m., 9 a.m. on Saturday. We're gonna look into possibly getting a Uhaul so we only have to make one trip to Dell and back for loading. Matt won't be able to do the stream this year, but we might still be able to use his equipment. As soon as we know who all will be attending and who wants to stream, we can set up a decent stream schedule and schedule of events. Speaking of schedule we'll put them into 2-2.5hour blocks with breaks and announcements every 4-6 hours or so. Comcast will be providing 2Gig internet!!! So we shouldn't have any internet problems that we've had in the past! We talked a lot about giveaways and donations incentives and pushes. Here's what we have so far: -Whoever raises the MOST throughout the whole event - Two tickets to DreamHack Atlanta -Whoever donates the most (does not have to be at the event) - LG Ultrawide monitor -Donation push with VandyLan -Whoever raises the most after 12 hours (10 a.m. - 10 p.m.) pies whoever has raised the LEAST in the face. Same in the final 12 hours. And wins Discord/DreamHack swag -Night Owls - Whoever raises the most between midnight and 8 a.m. wins a copy of Black Ops 4 -Gift cards from Gamestop, McKays, The Game Cave, The Rabbit Hole, Food gift cards. If anyone has connections with anyone that could donate in-kind for these giveaways please reach out ASAP! We'll have posters printed soon to spread EVERYWHERE! We don't have another guild meeting before Game Day, but we will most likely have a Discord call meeting between now and then so please make sure you're on the channel!
  10. 1. Numbers Money Raised - $12,384 (up $85 from last month) Registered - 120 (up 20 from last month) 2. Game Day with Kids Today's was great! Microsoft came and brought volunteers. Microsoft also donates per volunteers so we got $200 from that alone. They brought the portable Xbox's with small displays. This would be something really great for us to have permanently if we could get funds or donations for. They'd be more practical than having the big monitors and consoles. We've also been talking with Child Life about portable equipment that can be used in patient rooms. 3. Grand Ole Gameroom - November 9 - 11 So the event this year is going to have some esports tournaments and gaming outside of arcade games. We've been asked if we'd like to participate somehow so we're going to be the "official" partner for the Fortnite tournament. We need to figure out exactly how we want to utilize this and be present in it. We could charge a couple extra dollars which would go to Extra Life. We're probably not going to actually TO the event but we need to have as much presence there as possible. This IS the weekend after Game Day but please try to sign up to come if you're available that weekend. 4. Mid-Week Jam with Platforms - Every Wednesday Platforms is doing a "Mid-Week Jam" tournament every wednesday. Typically it includes Rocket League and Mario Kart and possibly some others in the future. One of the owners, Luke, said he would be willing to get us involved in it somehow. Typically they charge $5 for entries so we discussed possibly charging $7 and the extra $2 goes to Extra Life. Luke said they've had upwards of $20 every week. This might not be a lot of money coming in but it's at least something and it's exposure and recruitment as well. Right now we're going to partner for the Oct. 10th Mid-Week Jam and see how it goes, possibly do this once a month or maybe more in the future. We'll have advertising details and more about this soon. 5. Maker Faire - The Wondr'y October 6th-7th. Setup October 5th 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. We've secured a booth at the Maker Faire again this year. We'll have a table and we'd like to have some monitors and games setup. We need as many volunteers as possible, this will be a great opportunity to advertise Game Day for streamers and recruitment for signups. Please signup if you're available to volunteer. 6. Game Day - Tech Hill Commons November 3rd As we've discussed previously, we're making this years Game Day exclusive to streamers, guild members and sponsors. Essentially the main goal of Game Day is to raise money, how do we do that? Primarily by live streaming. Now we need to figure out the best way to execute it and publicize it to streamers in Nashville and Tennessee. We've had issues in the past where we're having to "babysit" our equipment because the event has been opened to the public so we're also doing this to limit any of those issues. While everyone should be fundraising throughout the year anyway, we'll be using this as a celebration, along with a big fundraising push. Marcus has put together a *short* "application" that we will use to vet people that are interested in coming and streaming for the event. We'll set a fundraising goal that every member will have to raise by Game Day (something like $5 or $10). We'll also set a streaming requirement, like you must stream for at least 2 hours or something. Everyone must bring their own equipment, we'll still try to have monitors from Dell so if you're bringing consoles you won't have to bring your own. We'll be utilizing the Extra Life Nashville live stream again and we'll still have Miracle Families come and speak, it just won't but fully opened to the public. We're having a planning meeting TONIGHT September 17th at 7 p.m. on the Discord channel. I apologize that this is such a late notice but if you're interested in helping with planning and logistics please try to be present. I'll be sending out notes from tonight and we'll probably have another meeting in a week or so. 7. Game Stop Initiative As you've probably seen Game Stop is doing a push with Children's Miracle Network right now. If you have the chance please go by your local store and thank them for their support! 8. Next Meeting - October 3rd at Tech Hill Commons at 6 p.m. Don't forget to join our discord channel and like us on facebook !!

  17. 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 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! 6) Next Meeting - June 11th Time and Location TBA Don't forget to join the discord channel!

  23. 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! 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! 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. 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!
