Early on in our history, the Tennessee Game Players Association (the people that bring you TGD!) decided to make part of our goal to do good through having fun. Community service efforts have been a part of our TGD event for many years. Last year, we joined in with the folks from Extra Life to raise money for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. We are hosting the same event again this year and hoping to raise even more money to help take care of sick children in our community.
Extra Gaming for Extra Life will return again this year on Saturday, November 14th! We will have a full day of gaming on tap, with the TGD gaming library available for people to play. The event will actually be held IN the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt this year -- it will be a great reminder of what our fund efforts are going towards.
Like last year, we will be asking people to raise / donate money for the cause, with a suggested donation of $20 to attend the game day. We're hoping to double attendance from last year and raise even more money for Extra Life! We will also be announcing some fund raising incentives soon, but in the meantime, you can head over to our team page to register, get ready to do some good, and to make plans for the fun!
We are getting more and more excited about Tennessee Game Days 2016. What better way to kick off the celebration than by unveiling the TGD XI Meeple!
We are ready to rock with another great year of games, tours, fun events, games, games, and games! We will definitely be turning it up to 11 with some additional gaming hours! What? That's right - we'll have more details soon!
Hope you're planning to join us at TGD XI!
I hope everyone has enjoyed the "off season." We're about six months away from TGD XI and we are getting excited here at TGD HQ!
Registration is going to open on October 1st. In the lead up to the start of registration, each week we are going to be highlighting new and exciting things coming for TGD XI. As we start on our second decade of gaming together, we can't wait to share a table with each and every one of you - for the eleventh time or for the first.
We hope you're starting to get as excited as we are - spread the word to your gamer friends and we'll see you next week!
