    2018 Guild Kickoff

    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 $120,000 for Johns Hopkins Children's Center and helped Children's National grow their fundraising year-over-year! 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 will be provided, and you'll have an opportunity to meet some of the Miracle Kids that have been impacted by the fundraising our Extra Lifers have done! Family friendly board games will be provided, and you're welcome to bring your own games to play! AGENDA 12:00-12:15 Meet & Greet 12:15-12:30 Presentation from Extra Life Baltimore Guild Leadership 12:30-12:45 Miracle Kids - Stories and Thank You 12:45-1:00 Questions and Answers, Guild Member/Extra Lifer Stories 1:00-2:00 Lunch & Games Whether it's your first time or your ninth time, we welcome you to come hang out with us for this special event! PARKING Parking is free! Park in the Orleans Street garage directly across from the main Children's Center building. You will be required to take a ticket. Please bring this ticket in to the meeting with you, and you will be provided with a validation sticker so you don't have to pay anything! When you leave, use the cash lane with the attendant and provide your validated parking ticket. GETTING TO THE EVENT If you park in the Orleans Street garage, go to the fourth floor skybridge from the elevators nearest the colorful Children's Center building. As you cross the skybridge, there will be a security/information desk to your right. Please check in at this desk and inform them that you are there to attend the Extra Life meeting. They will provide you with a visitor's wristband, and direct you to the room we will be in.
  3. Hello, D.C. friends! In the absence of an actively engaged Washington, D.C. Guild, we'd love to invite you to our 2018 Kickoff Event on February 3, 2018! We support Johns Hopkins Children's Center as our partner hospital, but we are first and foremost Extra Lifers who want to ensure the success of Extra Life as a whole. As such, we're covering events in the entire Baltimore/DC/NoVa area on behalf of both Johns Hopkins Children's Center and Children's National in hopes of growing fundraising for both hospitals until a strong guild presence is established in Washington, D.C. Whether you're new to Extra Life or an old timer, we'd love to meet you, share our story with you, and fill your tummy with a delicious free meal! Thanks to nominal efforts in the D.C. area, we've helped to grow Children's National's Extra Life presence as well as improve fundraising for Johns Hopkins Children's Center - and you were a part of that! We'd love to share in that success with you. We'd also love to include you in any future D.C. area events. Please RSVP on the event below if you would plan to come. We'd love to have you!

    Guild Kickoff!!

    Tuesday April 19th at the Microsoft store at the St. Johns Towncenter at 7pm. Join us for pizza and soft drinks, while we discuss what we've got in store for this year...then play lots of XBOne!
  12. Hi y'all! For those of you who were able to make it to the kickoff, THANK YOU for coming out and brainstorming ideas for Extra Life in Denver for 2016 and playing games with Anissa and her family! It meant so much to them that they can come be a part of something with which they truly have a connection and interest. We talked about a lot of things that we could implement this year, but I think our most pertinent consensus was that Extra Life needs to be a bigger deal in this market. That means the recruitment, involvement, participation, awareness, and dedication has to be improved. Denver has such amazing potential as one of the biggest gaming communities in the country, and we want to take advantage of that! So! Here are some upcoming events that we should start talking about in terms of getting Extra Life represented: Colorado Rocket League Championship Tournament: April 10 http://clutcharena.com/denver-rocket-league-tournament/ Anime Southwest: April 29 - May 1 http://sukoshicon.com/wordpress/ Cheyenne Comic Con: May 13-15 http://www.cheyennecomiccon.com/ Denver Comic Con (we may have a booth for this, so please let me know if you're interested and available to help work it!): June 17-19 http://denvercomiccon.com/ Fort Collins Comic Con: August 26-28 https://fococomiccon.com/ Colorado Springs Comic Con: (also) August 26-28 http://www.cscomiccon.com/ I would love to support anyone who is willing and able to attend any of these events to represent Extra Life with materials. Please let me know if you are interested in helping with any of these events by emailing me at kthomas@childrenscoloradofoundation.org. The deadline to sign up for Denver Comic Con assistance is Wednesday, March 30th. Recurring Events: Smash Bros Night: Tuesday nights, 7pm, Clutch Gaming Arena http://clutcharena.com/ League of Legends Team Building Meetup: Wednesday nights, 6pm, Clutch Gaming Arena https://calendar.google.com/calendar/render?eid=NW1mcWFxOXBiOGp1M2RmbmJrZnJpdG03ZXNfMjAxNjAzMTBUMDEwMDAwWiBqdXN0aW5AY2x1dGNoYXJlbmEuY29t&ctz=America/Denver&sf=true&output=xml#eventpage_6 Conclave of Gamers events: Daily http://cog16.sched.org/ Opportunities: Game nights with patients and families at Children's Hospital Colorado Teen Zone Monthly meetups - bowling, laser tag, etc? Partnerships: Gamer's Haven Game Stop Used game shops Wizard's Chest Pepsi Center Celebrities/Sports Icons These opportunities are just ideas to start with - if you have a connection with any game shops, sports teams, etc. - USE THEM. This is your chance to spread the word! We'll start with that, I know that's already plenty of information. Please let me know if you're able to attend any of these events to represent Extra Life. In the meantime, get your friends on board, start some connections, and let's get gaming!

    Come and Join the Extra Life Pittsburgh Guild as we officially Kick off 2016 at the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh! Come get involved as we plan on making Extra Life bigger than ever in the region and discuss plans to attend all sorts of fun events to spread the word about the best gaming charity around! Interested in doing even MORE for local kids? Let us know if you're interested in a leadership position, as each year at kickoff time, you can express your interest in taking on a guild leadership role to work along side the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation to uphold our mission of recruiting new Extra Lifers. If you think you might be interested in taking a core leadership role or in being a member of the newly established Social and Entertainment Committee, please send a PM to one of our current guild officers, @sighnoceros @slowmojoe or myself (@k8morosky) to learn how. Watch this space for additional meeting details, directions to our meeting space in the Plaza Building on the CHP campus, and instructions on how to take advantage of free parking in the hospital garage during the meeting. We'd love for you to join us as we celebrate the dawn of a new fundraising year with free food and drink! Bring a favorite tabletop game, and join in the fun after the meeting! Parking Info/Directions can be found here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/pittsburgh-extra-life-guild-kickoff-2016-tickets-23162456531 The signs for the North Parking Garage are kind of small, but the entrances are near the "back" of the hospital, and usually have a sign that says "STAFF PARKING ONLY". That's the garage you want. Push the red button and tell the attendant you are there for the Extra Life Kickoff meeting. Once inside, follow the instructions at the above link to make your way to the meeting space. If you have any trouble, feel free to call Jim (@sighnoceros) at 814-558-7727.
