    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.
  2. CON SEASON 2018 HAS BEGUN! (ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧ As with last year, Washington D.C. Extra Lifers are welcome (and encouraged) to volunteer at our events. I will be updating this thread throughout the 2018 fundraising season. For general information about upcoming events, this is your one-stop-shop. You can also follow the Calendar for our guild. Most event-specific details will be on the individual pages, which I'll be linking here. I will update the status of various conventions and events on this thread, and will be notifying you when additional events have been added. You should click on the Follow button at the top of this post to make sure you get updates. THIS THREAD WILL BE LOCKED TO REPLIES UNTIL AFTER GAME DAY, NOV. 3RD. Please address any questions, concerns, or suggestions regarding specific events on their page. If you'd like to suggest an event that we're not already working with, please send a PM to the following: @Sarah @NodnarbDude @Ceraph1216 CONFIRMED EVENTS UNCONFIRMED EVENTS CecilCon Prattcon Artscape/Gamescape BlerdCon Washingcon Baltimore Comic Con WISHLIST Katsucon StarCity Games Event (any) MAGFest BitGen Music Festival College Club Recruitment Fairs Smithsonian Arcade

    An application has been submitted for this event, but it is not confirmed. Since this would be our first attempt to participate with AwesomeCon, I am currently unsure of our odds of getting in, however the volunteer I spoke to at Super MAGFest sounded optimistic. SCHEDULE TBD - if you are interested in volunteering at this event, please RSVP to the left of this text. Thanks!

    Super MAGFest

    MAGFest is the most targeted event hosted in the Baltimore/D.C. Metro area, with 20-25,000 attendees - all of whom have a love for gaming! To read more about MAGFest, check out this article on Wikipedia or the MAGFest site for Super MAGFest. This is our first time participating with the MAGFest organization, but we're thrilled for the opportunity and hope we'll be included in future events! We have no idea what to expect from this event compared to our other major cons in the area, so please be patient as we're likely to encounter hiccups in the process this year. Further, many of us attend cons at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, but we have never volunteered an event there. We're likely to encounter some growing pains! MAGFest has graciously provided us with a free table and four free dealer badges in their Marketplace area. We have no way to anticipate the traffic we may get at this event, so it's possible the table may be slow, or overwhelming. MAGFest has some required staffing hours, but the Marketplace is open 24 hours during the event. For this first year, we plan to staff the table for the minimal hours and collect data for next year's event. PLEASE MAKE SURE TO READ THE SECTION ABOUT FOOD AND POTTY BREAKS - THE GAYLORD IS NOT AS CONVENIENT FOR FOOD AS THE BALTIMORE CONVENTION CENTER OR THE WALTER E. WHITE CONVENTION CENTER! COVERAGE As this is our first time at this event, it is CRITICAL that you are on-time for your shift, particularly since we are only covering the minimum hours. Please let @Sarah know immediately if you don't think you'll be on time for an opening shift. As-needed Break Coverage @LittleSith Wednesday Between 5:30 PM - Midnight - table setup only @Sarah Thursday 1:30 PM - 7:00 PM @Sarah @Ceraph1216 Friday 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM @Ceraph1216 @Aaron 1:00 PM - 7:00 PM @NodnarbDude Saturday 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM @Sarah 11:00 AM - 7:00 PM @Emokidcries Sunday 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM @Emokidcries 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM - breakdown/load out only @Ceraph1216 Setup and load-out instructions will be provided to volunteers working on these processes only. PARKING There is plentiful parking in the area within convenient walking distance. It is unlikely you will need to walk more than about 5 blocks. It is strongly recommended that you pre-purchase parking so it is not sold out prior to your volunteer shift. Parking can be purchased through National Harbor's parking reservation site here: https://nationalharbor.clickandpark.com/venue Parking will cost between $14 and $20 per day. Reserving your parking ensures you will have in/out privileges during the time you are parked. Volunteers who will be driving to the convention will incur out-of-pocket parking expenses. These parking expenses will not be reimbursed, however they can be written off at your end-of-year tax return as volunteer expenses. Please be sure to request a receipt if you use cash-paid event parking. Retain a copy of your receipts for your tax records. PUBLIC TRANSIT I was unable to locate useful Public Transit information for getting to National Harbor. It appears that shuttle services are available from Reagan National Airport. It may be best to travel as close as possible to the area via MARC train and hire an Uber/Lyft/Taxi to your final destination. ATTENDING PANELS, CONCERTS, EVENTS, AND EXPLORING THE CONVENTION At this time, we are not entirely sure if the industry badges provided by MAGFest will allow normal access to panels and events. This section will be updated with further information as it becomes available, or you may be notified via text message during the event. During your volunteer shift (especially since coverage is going to be minimal), you are not permitted to use your badge to attend events or panels. You are expected to be present at the table and actively recruiting future Extra Life participants. Before or after your volunteer shift, you are welcome to explore the convention. If you attend an event, please be sure to remove/conceal your Extra Life name badge. Before, during, and after your shift — especially every minute that you wear that convention badge — you are representing Extra Life, Johns Hopkins Children's Center, and the Extra Life Baltimore Guild (and in this area, Children's National as well). MAGFest has generously waived their fees for us in order to make it possible for us to attend and volunteer at this event. It is very important that we maintain a great relationship with the staff at MAGFest so that we can continue to attend. Remember, you are representing a children's charity. None of us would judge you for attending certain 18+ events, but you shouldn't be attending it using a badge donated for professional use. Use common sense, and check with @Sarah if you aren't sure if the panel or event you'd like to attend is appropriate. LUNCHES AND POTTY BREAKS If you need to take a quick bathroom break and you do not have backup coverage at the booth, please take any loose valuable items with you (i.e. laptops, tablets, cell phones). There will be a small lock box available in our booth as well. If you have backup coverage at the booth and need to leave to get food or take a bathroom break, please be courteous and let the other volunteer know that you are leaving the table. The Gaylord is notoriously expensive to purchase food at, the number of vendors inside the Convention Center is limited, and the lines are horrible. Seeking food offsite includes an inconvenient walk and even longer lines. If you don't bring food, you may not have an opportunity to eat. This is the number one issue with the Gaylord National Resort! Please be sure to pack snacks or a decent, fulfilling lunch and plenty of beverages. Better yet, bring a water bottle. You will have opportunities to refill it throughout the convention. SIGNING UP TO VOLUNTEER This event is currently fully staffed. We need one volunteer minimum per shift to start off with, however extra coverage during periods would be appreciated! For additional details, please message @Sarah, @NodnarbDude or @Ceraph1216. Volunteers will receive ongoing updates and instructions throughout the week and during the convention. Thanks so very much for donating your time and energy for the kids!

    Come on out to the Carnegie Science Center for their monthly 21+ night. September's theme is gaming, so it's a great fit for us! They'll have plenty to do for gamers and non-gamers alike, so bring your friends for a trip through the Science Center that doesn't involve competing with kids for playtime with their cool sciencey stuff. Bonus Round: Live music and cash bars will also be located throughout. Stop by and say hello, or even volunteer at our booth - either way it's always a blast!
  6. Hey everyone! We will be set up at the Carnegie Science Center 21+ night on Friday September 8th from 6-10PM. Come on out and volunteer or even just say hi! These events are always a blast!
  7. Hey gang! Here's your schedule! As always you are more then welcome to stay longer than your assigned shift. I expect a lot of traffic at this one. There are two tourneys happening so get your recruiter hats on!

Thanks everyone!!
  8. Hey everybody! Otakon is a little over a week away and we're in need of volunteers. Otakon is one of our busiest events of the year, so it would be great if we could get a lot of table coverage without burning people out. If you're going to be there and would like to help out (or if you don't already have a badge and want to see what all the fuss is about) please head over to the forums and respond to our calendar event: http://community.extra-life.org/calendar/event/1275-otakon/ Even if you can only help out for a couple hours, every little bit helps! Thanks guys, and keep up the great work.
  9. CON SEASON 2017 HAS BEGUN! (ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧ A few important changes in the way I'll be organizing events this year: I'm trying to set up DC Metro Area events this year, and we'll be bringing along any Children's fundraisers who would like to volunteer but can't due to the lack of a functional Extra Life DC Guild. I'm going to try to contain general discussion and questions about events to their event pages, which will make things easier for everyone to follow. RSVPing on events will be more important than last year because we have an influx of new volunteers and badges will be limited. I will be updating this thread throughout the 2017 fundraising season. For general information about upcoming events, this is your one-stop-shop. You can also follow the Calendar for our guild. Most event-specific details will be on the individual pages, which I'll be linking here. I will update the status of various conventions and events on this thread, and will be notifying you when additional events have been added. You should click on the Follow button at the top of this post to make sure you get updates. THIS THREAD WILL BE LOCKED TO REPLIES UNTIL AFTER GAME DAY, NOV. 4TH. Please address any questions, concerns, or suggestions regarding specific events on their page. If you'd like to suggest an event that we're not already working with, please send a PM to the following: @Sarah @NodnarbDude @Ceraph1216 CONFIRMED EVENTS UNCONFIRMED (BUT LIKELY) EVENTS WISH LIST EVENTS NEW EVENTS FOR 2018 IN THE WORKS Katsucon (February) Magfest (Various) Super Smash Con - looking into this for 2017 as well, but it conflicts with Otakon so will depend on volunteers and other resources Smithsonian SAAM Arcade at American Art Museum Awesome Con
  10. Team, We have a skeleton schedule for this weekend but it's pretty bare bones! We need help! Please visit the event page and RSVP, then comment with which shifts you can work. If you don't see a full shift you can work, let us know what you are able to do instead. This is a high traffic event and one person coverage at the table is not going to be pleasant. We had 2-3 volunteers for the majority of the hours last year and we needed them for most of it! Recruitment isn't a high percentage of the total attendees, but the traffic is significant and you have to get through greeting people to get to the ones most likely to participate. Please help! Thanks, guys!

Plus, this is the only place to watch the world’s greatest pinball wizards compete in the Pinburgh Match-Play Championship. Live musical performances, a high-energy cosplay contest, inflatable obstacle courses, and more in a show floor packed with over 200,000 square feet of entertainment!

    Kennywood Comicon

    Kennywood Comicon is exactly what it sounds like: A Comicon at Kennywood! This Father's day, we'll be representing at Kennywood Park. Amidst the rollercoasters and potato patch fries, we'll be talking to people about how to get involved with Extra Life. Those wearing super hero themed shirts get a discount on park tickets, and those who wish to volunteer with us get in for free. We are currently seeking two more volunteers for this one day event at Kennywood. Please contact @K8Morosky if interested!

    Cleveland ConCoction

    We've been offered a table at Cleveland ConCoction. We should be receiving up to four weekend passes and we'll be looking for people to man the table each day. The passes are non-transferrable, so we will need to figure out who wants to be at the table each day. It's also been mentioned that there is a game room and we can stream and raise money for Extra Life. If you might be available to stream for a bit, let us know. We should have more information around the game room in the coming days. Pictures will be taken of the table and promoted through the Cleveland ConCoction social media accounts. This is a fantastic way for us to get some traction right at the beginning of the year.

Come on out for a day full of, you guessed it, GAMING. Gaming of all types will be showcased - video games, board games, card games, and RPGs (maybe even some LARPing?)!
