For the Kids
The RPGKC Extra Life 2014 special event is being held in conjunation with our monthly Game Day, Saturday, October 11th at Galaxy Games' new location at 3500 S 22nd St, St. Joseph, MO (map).
What is it?
In addition to our usual RPGs and board games, we are soliciting donations for the Extra Life charity, benefiting Children's Miracle Network hospitals. Each year Extra Life organizes gaming marathons. Participants solicit donations from friends, familiy, anyone really, similar to the March of Dimes' March for Babies and Bikers for Babies or the Alheimer's Association's Walk to Remember. Donors usually pitch in a dollar for every hour gamed. Game 24 hours, each donor pitches in $24. Voila! We aren't gaming 24 hours at Galaxy Games, but we are gaming 12! How about $2 for each hour? =)
Help just by coming and participating, or donating a few dollars (or more), or join our team to solicit donations/sponsors yourself! The charity works all year, culminating in a national gaming event October 25th, so if you can't help out at our special Game Day event, consider alternatives.
Please spread the word!
Attention 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. =)

The Extra Life KC Guild full-guild will be meeting Wednesday, September 10 at 6:30pm at Paradise Park, 1021 NE Colbern Rd, Lees Summit, Missouri 64086. Topics of discussion will be ELKCG's participation in Kansas City RenFest, KC Game Fair, the Archetype Gaming LAN at Ameristar, events at Game Cafe, and more.
The ELKCG has grown by more than 300% compared to this time last year! Three hundred percent! Don't you want to play a part in that? We know you do!
See you Wednesday!
Our friends and colleagues at the Extra Life KC Guild held their kickoff meeting in June at the Microsoft Store in Oak Park Mall and had a great showing of support from the Kansas City gaming community! The ELKCG is now meeting on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:3pm (location varies). Check out the Facebook group for monthly details.
The ELKCG's core function is to help recruit more gamers to participate in the Extra Life movement. The more people helping, the more they recruit. So come on out and get involved, or just pass the word on.

The RPGKC is proud to have been contacted by the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in regards to participating in this event. We will be reaching out to the various local game stores to see if they are going to participate and then, we will be letting you know where to go to get your game on. This is a charity event to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Hospital Network. Basically, we play games, get people to sponsor us/donate and have fun with the feeling of helping out our community at the same time.
