KC RenFestAttention gamers! The Extra Life KC Guild needs volunteers at their RenFest booth September 20-21. Work at the booth in period dress for two hours and you get complimentary access to RenFest all that day. What a deal, and all for a good cause! If they have more than enough volunteers for Saturday, they will also staff the booth Sunday. Volunteers will be taking registrations for participants in Extra Life's national gaming marathon on October 25th.

They'll need your name by end of day, September 18, so don't delay! Get out your pantaloons and help out. =)
