Why I "Extra Life"







Blizzard Battletag

Nintendo ID




Xbox Gamertag

Found 13 results

  1. 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!
  2. 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 !!

    January Meeting

    In consideration of people's holidays and vacations, our monthly meeting will be on January 11th, the SECOND Wednesday of the month this time, instead of the first. As of now, we will be back in our usual meeting place, in the Waddlington Board room at the Monroe Carrol Jr Children's Hospital.
  8. until
    Well everyone, it's that time of the month again! Time for our monthly meeting to discuss upcoming events and ideas. This month, we'll also be covering our results from our Game-A-thon, and discuss future ideas and plans for 2017!! Since this was our first official year as a guild, we have no where to go but up! Next year will be even better! December will be a slow month as far as events go, more than likely, with the holidays coming, and having just completed our Game-A-Thon, but nonetheless, we will have our usual meeting to enjoy each other's company
  9. until
    Ok everyone this is it!!! Time for our yearly 24 hour game stream! We will be hosting the event at Monroe Carrol Jr Children's Hospital, at Vanderbilt. The event will take place in the Waddlington Board rooms (same place where we've been having our meetings, but we will remove the divider wall, to make more room) We will be live streaming, have multiple projectors set up to connect gaming systems. Those who plan on attending can bring their own Consoles/TVs/Board Games/Card Games, etc to the event. Great network to use for online.
  10. Hey guys! I thought I would make a thread for hospital news and Miracle Stories. This thread is a great way to stay updated on happenings at the hospital and can be used when recruiting. Stay tuned for my first story.... Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) made history in 1997 when two surgeons pioneered fetal surgery to treat spina bifida, or myelomeningocele, the most common birth defect in the central nervous system. Members of the fetal surgery teams from Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Mater Mother’s Hospital in Brisbane, Australia, pose for a photo during the Vanderbilt team’s recent visit. Almost two decades later, armed with overwhelming evidence from a seven-year study that confirms the effectiveness of the complicated surgery, and with more than 300 cases already performed at Vanderbilt, the institution recently made history again when a team traveled to Australia in July to help launch that country’s first-ever fetal surgery program for spina bifida and guide the first surgery. Read more about how Vanderbilt is taking discoveries around the globe, here.
