  1. In order to better organize, improve communication with Guild Members, and streamline scheduling and staffing for events, we will be using timecounts.org as a volunteer coordination tool. If you would like to participate with the Extra Life Baltimore Guild as a volunteer, or would like priority consideration for limited social events and convention access, please fill out the 2019 Extra Life Baltimore Guild Application. FAQ I already filled out a paper application at a recent Guild Meeting. Do I also need to complete the digital application? No. If you indicated you were interested in becoming part of Guild Leadership or serving on a committee, you may be asked to answer some additional questions via a separate application. Otherwise, the information you provided on your paper application has been entered by a Guild Leader, and you will receive an e-mail with instructions. Do I need to sign up for a timecounts.org account? It is suggested, but not required. If you do, you'll have a better experience signing up for specific opportunities and events. Ok, I created an account. How do I review and sign up for upcoming meetings, social events, and request a volunteer shift at a convention/event? There will be a brief training on how to use the site at our upcoming March Guild Meeting, and we may create some additional walkthrough materials that will be updated to this post as attachments in the future. In the meantime, feel free to message @Sarah here or in Discord and she will be happy to walk you through it.
  2. There are two game day events coming up in the Vermont area that I think our guild members would enjoy attending! On October 22nd and 23rd, Champlain College eSports is hosting a 24 hour Game Day for Burlington at Champlain College. Check out all the details at their event here! Carnage Con is also holding their own 24 hour Game Day event on November 4th and 5th at Killington Grand Resort. Check out info on their event here and here. Both events are looking for volunteers so reach out to me if you are interested and I can direct you to the right people. The Champlain College eSports event actually has a form you can fill out here if you want to volunteer: http://bit.ly/2d4e3EB

    Baltimore Comic Con

    until
    Baltimore Comic Con is held at the Baltimore Convention Center, and is the largest local comic convention. Baltimore Comic Con hosts an Artist Alley small-volume dealer area (similar to many other conventions) and this is where our table/booth will be located. It appears that we will only have one small table and space for chairs behind it. This will be a much smaller area than what we had at Otakon. We will be directly across from concessions, and it appears that we are facing a wall with one of the main entrances to this space in the BCC, so we should get a fair amount of foot traffic. AS THIS IS A LARGE EVENT THAT DRAWS IN ATTENDEES FROM MANY STATES, WE ENCOURAGE VOLUNTEERS FROM OTHER AREA GUILDS TO JOIN US! COVERAGE We will be staffing this booth at Otakon in hopes of recruiting new Extra Lifers to participate in this year's Game Day. Unfortunately, two of our core volunteering team are attending/presenting at the convention and will not be able to provide significant coverage. Since we were unable to confirm our space until the last minute, we are going to be scrambling for coverage. Any individuals interested in volunteering are encouraged to message @Sarah with any questions, or in the comments below. Please RSVP on this page if you intend to help, and comment with which times you are available. Further instructions will be provided throughout the week. We have secured two badges for volunteers, which will need to be switched off throughout the weekend. If it appears that we could schedule a lot more than two people per block of time, then I am able to purchase an additional two badges for a very low price ($25/each). Since we do not have anyone staying in a hotel for this convention, passing badges off may have to happen off-site. PLEASE DO NOT PLAN ON TAKING YOUR CONVENTION BADGE HOME; AS COVERAGE IS CONFIRMED ARRANGEMENTS FOR HAND-OFFS WILL BE MADE. We are in need of volunteer coverage for the following windows: Thursday 7 pm - 9 pm includes badge pickup and booth setup/drop off (no participant-facing time) @Sarah Friday 12 pm - 7 pm @Aaron @Ceraph1216 Saturday 9:30 am - 4 pm @Sarah 11 am - 6 pm @NodnarbDude 12 pm - 7 pm @KJCoin Sunday 9:30 am - 4 pm @KJCoin 11 am - 6 pm - includes booth breakdown @Sarah 1 pm - 6 pm @NodnarbDude PARKING Please plan on parking 1 hour prior to your volunteering shift. Traffic in the city gets heavy in the late morning, particularly on Friday and Saturday. It may become harder to find a garage that is not full on Saturday or Sunday. If you are not staying at the convention late into the evening, it may be better to use public transit into the city. Please reference Google Maps to assist you in locating a parking garage close to the convention center. The Sheraton parking garage is most convenient and obvious as you turn in on Conway (not marked on this Maps search), however it fills up very quickly and it is unlikely you will get a spot there during the convention. Google Map of Parking Garages close to the Baltimore Convention Center Parking passes are pre-purchasable through this link on the Baltimore Comic Con website: http://baltimorecomiccon.com/about/directions/ Parking garages will fill up quickly and it is recommended to pre-purchase parking once you know which days you can volunteer. Volunteers who will be driving to the convention will incur 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 The Baltimore Convention Center has it's own light rail stop with service from the Red, Yellow, and Blue lines. MARC Trains run into Baltimore from more distant county departure points, and stop nearest to the Baltimore Convention Center at Camden Yards, which is a comfortable walking distance of several blocks. For further information about using public transit, please visit the Maryland Transit Authority website at https://mta.maryland.gov/. If choosing the Light Rail, it is suggested that you purchase a day pass. You can also message @NodnarbDude with public transit questions. IF YOU INTEND TO USE PUBLIC TRANSIT, PLEASE BE AWARE OF HOURS OF SERVICE BEFORE COMMITTING TO A SHIFT. Volunteers who will be driving to the convention will incur transit expenses. These transit expenses will not be reimbursed, however they can be written off at your end-of-year tax return as volunteer expenses. Retain a copy of your receipts for your tax records. ATTENDING PANELS, EVENTS, OR EXPLORING THE CONVENTION At this time, we are not entirely sure if the industry badges provided by Baltimore Comic Con will allow normal access to non-dealer areas of the convention. This section will be updated with further information as it becomes available. 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, if your badge does not need to be handed off to another volunteer, you are welcome to explore the convention. All badges MUST be turned in before leaving the Baltimore Convention Center/Hilton unless otherwise instructed. You may not attend off-site events, and you may not attend 18+ panels. Badge hand-offs will be coordinated via group text message. 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. Baltimore Comic Con 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 Baltimore Comic Con so that we can continue to attend. Remember, you are representing a children's charity. Use common sense, and check with @Sarah if you aren't sure if the panel or event you'd like to attend is appropriate. To consider and plan out panels and events you'd like to attend, download the Guidebook app from Google Play or iTunes. This is a great resource for additional information about the convention (hours, directions, and updates). 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. There are bathrooms conveniently located in the Artist Alley space. 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. Lines at the food vendors nearest the gaming hall are horrendous, and it is not practical to leave the convention to purchase food (trust me, the lines will be even worse at normal restaurants). Any food you may be able to purchase will be overpriced convention food. It is strongly suggested to pack a lunch if possible. SIGNING UP TO VOLUNTEER Please let us know when you can volunteer. I will update the event with confirmed volunteer names below the shifts they have agreed to work. We need one volunteer minimum per shift to start off with, however extra coverage during periods that there is a badge free 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! TABLE SETUP & STRATEGY Our table number is A344 and can be located on the map attached below under "Resources." As we will only have one 6 foot table available, our table space will be limited. Electricity is not available without incurring additional fees, so we will probably be operating without electricity for this convention. The Baltimore Convention Center does not provide reliable wi-fi, and we will need to use our own cellular devices to create a hotspot for sign-ups. At this time, I expect that the following will be featured at our table: Prize Wheel with small prizes and raffle for giveaways donated by @KJCoin and @Sarah Participant Brochures Volunteer Brochures Tablets for Sign-up (will be fully charged and have battery backup available for recharge) Our specific strategies for this convention will be finalized in our planning meeting on Saturday, August 27 at Noon. This is a virtual meeting and will be conducted as a conference call. For further up-to-date information about the planning meeting, please see the official post at: RESOURCES Maryland Transit Authority Regional Transit Map Downtown Baltimore Parking Map Downtown Baltimore Visitors Map (Includes Light Rail and Bus Information) Map of Artist Alley Official Artist Alley Instructions
  4. Baltimore Comic Con is coming up on September 2nd and continuing until September 4th. As this is a large scale event that will draw in attendees from the surrounding states, we encourage volunteers from nearby guilds to participate! We have two badges, and will be able to secure two additional badges as needed. These badges will be handed off throughout the weekend. If we are able to flex our coverage up to enough people that we would have more than two people available at any given time, then we can shorten some of the shifts to allow additional time to explore the convention. We will be planning out details of this event this upcoming Saturday during a virtual meeting/conference call. You can find the details at the event page: If coverage (and terms of the badges) allows for it, participants will be allowed to attend panels or events before or after their volunteering shifts however this cannot be guaranteed. People attending Baltimore Comic Con for fun who are willing to provide brief lunch break coverage to volunteers are also encouraged to RSVP at the event below. Looking forward to seeing everyone!
  5. Thanks so very much to our heavy hitters over the course of Otakon weekend: @KJCoin, @Ceraph1216 and @Aaron! You guys covered a lot of hours with minimal breaks and enabled @NodnarbDude, my husband and I to focus on enjoying the convention we paid so much to attend. I learned a lot of hard-earned lessons about setup and breakdown situations between this event and Gamescape, and I'm really glad we made things work to be at this con at the last minute. Our final results for the weekend as tallied was a grand total of 145 unique Extra-Life sign-ups! Over the course of our total "open hours," this works out to approximately 6 sign-ups per hour, with this number much lower per individual volunteer. Due to the size of this convention and the number of people traveling from out of state to attend, there was a substantial percentage of people who signed up for other hospitals, especially on Friday. Fewer locals attended the con on Friday during the day, while out of state gamers were there bright and early on Friday morning as they had checked into their hotels the previous night. I would approximate that at least 30% of our sign ups were out of state, although we did not capture concrete tallies on JHCC vs. other hospitals. We also had several people who signed up to participate this year, but had already participated in Game Day previously. Based off of the average of each sign up resulting in $100 raised by the close of the fundraising year, we can approximate that our efforts this weekend raised $8700 for our local hospital. We still missed our goal for 10 sign-ups per hour, but I think the potential was there to hit it and I believe with some tweaking we'll get there next year. I know the table got very overwhelmed during opening times, and some people walked away before we had the opportunity to speak with them. I think that while we did a great job and had a good location, there were other strategies we could have used to increase traffic had we known that we would have so much space. Here's some further analysis of the weekend: Most impactful hours: Friday 11-1 (22 sign-ups), Saturday 10-12 (21 sign-ups), Saturday 12-2 (18 sign-ups), Saturday 6-8 (17 sign-ups), Saturday 8-closing (17 sign-ups). Least impactful hours: Friday 5-7 (6 sign-ups), Friday 7-8:30 (5 sign-ups), Sunday 10:30-12:30 (3 sign-ups), Sunday 12:30-closing (0 sign-ups) Saturday could have kept rolling late into the evening, however due to staffing issues we shut things down at around 9 PM. I think we should plan to have coverage until close of the game room next year (1 AM). Sunday was pretty much pointless for sign-ups, however we completed raffle drawings and administrative tasks on Sunday. The raffle was effective at generating sign-ups in my opinion, however several people did not respond or pick up their prizes. If you volunteered for Otakon, please fill out the post-event survey I created at the link below. We want to ensure you are having the best possible volunteer experience, and that we are getting t he most out of every event that we ask you to participate in. https://goo.gl/forms/rCDPEPUL22TiK2er2 Please feel free to reply to this post to further discuss the event, our results, and what we should focus on for next time. Thanks again, everyone!

    Otakon

    until
    Otakon is one of the largest pop-culture conventions (and the largest anime convention) in our area. Otakon has consistently pulled attendance numbers of 28-33k attendees, many of whom are in our target demographic. Otakon hosts a large gaming hall in which many unusual, rare, or popular video and arcade games are available for free play to attendees. In this gaming hall, there are also small indie developers with booth space who are promoting their games. This is where our booth will be located. COVERAGE We will be staffing this booth at Otakon in hopes of recruiting new Extra Lifers to participate in this year's Game Day. Unfortunately, two of our core volunteering team are attending/presenting at the convention and will not be able to provide significant coverage.

None of us would judge you for attending cosplay burlesque , but you shouldn't be attending it using a badge donated for professional use.

    This is a very small event at Chesapeake Sports Cards. We do not need additional volunteers, however if someone is interested in attending, you are welcome to join. @Sarah is probably going to play in the draft after speaking with the players in attendance.
  8. Otakon is coming up this weekend and we are still working on confirming volunteer coverage. I believe we will have a skeleton crew available, however I would like to invite local Extra Lifers as well as volunteers from the surrounding area (Hershey, Philadelphia, and DC) to participate! We have two badges available, and these badges will need to be handed off between volunteers throughout the weekend. If coverage (and terms of the badges) allows for it, participants will be allowed to attend panels or events before or after their volunteering shifts however this cannot be guaranteed. People attending Otakon for fun who are willing to provide brief lunch break coverage to volunteers are also encouraged to RSVP at the event below. Looking forward to seeing everyone! http://community.extra-life.org/calendar/event/941-otakon/
  9. First, I'd like to give big thanks to @NodnarbDude, @Aaron and @KJCoin (and a golf clap for myself) for volunteering to cover this long weekend. It was a lot of hours, and in several cases we did not have extra coverage for lunches and potty breaks. You guys made some big sacrifices to make it happen this weekend! Thanks again, so very much, for all your hard work. Our final results for the weekend as tallied is a grand total of 81 unique new Extra-Life sign-ups! Unfortunately, I know of at least one person who chose a Virginia hospital, but in general we made some big progress for our local hospital, Johns Hopkins Children's Center! That's approximately 3 sign-ups per hour for each hour our table/booth was open at the event. Since on average for each sign up results in $100 raised, we can approximate that our efforts this weekend raised $8000 for our local hospital. Great job, guys! The best practice for events, as published in the Guild Handbook, is to seek events that would average 10 sign-ups per hour. I personally am not confident that potential exists at Gamescape; Artscape is a very, very large event but the total visitors through the Gamescape space were a small percentage of the total turnout, and were not limited to our target demographic. We could also potentially improve our sign-ups per hour by reducing our total staffing/"open" hours at the event and concentrating them for the times with the highest foot traffic. That said, for our first time tabling the event I think we did a lot of things right and we clearly still made an impact! If you volunteered this weekend, please fill out the post-event survey I created at the link below. We want to ensure you are having the best possible volunteer experience, and that we are getting the most out of every event that we ask you to participate in. http://goo.gl/forms/NIsug3vxDI1BGdT53 Please feel free to reply to this post to further discuss the event, our results, and what we should focus on for next time. Thanks again, everyone!
