Tenacious 24-Hour Charity Gaming Marathon - Part II
Saturday, August 12th
From 9:00am to 9:00am on Sunday
Mumble ... and the games/activities of your choice
All proceeds benefit the Children's Miracle Network in care of the Michael Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas
HOW DO I JOIN!?
Easy. You can post in this thread of your intentions or you can just be in Mumble at the start time and let an officer know that you are participating. At that time, all participants will receive a Mumble (24HR) tag
HOW DO WE RAISE MONEY?!
The Sponsor's company will donate $100 per Tenacious player that starts and finishes the marathon, up to $2,500. Harley Davidson, Missing Piece Car Club and Walmart will also be sponsoring the event. Individual members are free to raise money on their own if they so choose ... although raising money and/or donating is not required to participate.
Yes, Part II. Tenacious has already hosted 1 charity gaming marathon in 2017, during which we raised over $6,600 benefiting the Stead Family Children's Hospital at the University of Iowa. Tenacious & BDO Chapter member Mizzvaine streamed the entire 24-hour event on her Twitch.tv channel and raised nearly $4,000 on her own (with her incredible viewers).
ACTIVITIES & EVENTS
There will be multiple events for the community during the marathon, which is on the same day/night as Gamer Night 2017, and promises to be an incredible event for all members! We'll host Trivia contests, Karaoke Night, Raffle Prize Giveaways, Tenacious History Contests and have a community wide gathering/update meeting for everyone after Gamer Night begins. With two huge chapters still going strong, Black Desert Online and Revelation, we're sure each gaming chapter will also have an entire schedule of events that they will host during the marathon. It promises to be a truly historic night for Tenacious Gamers!
TEAM FORTRESS II
Gamer Night always features inner-community PvP matches on our private Team Fortress II server. The private server will be open all day and night for anyone wanting to play. Who knows, there might also be a BDO/Revelation challenge match or two
The rules are simple, and similar to our last 24-hour marathon, with a couple of tweaks due to the starting hour. To participate, you must be in Mumble (awake) at 9:00am on the day of the event, and you must remain in Mumble for the entire 24-hour event period. Because we are starting in the morning this time, there will be no scheduled naps, only breaks allotted for lunch dinner and breakfast and bathroom/smoke/brief rest stops. Meals will be 30 mintues, breaks 15 minutes and each participant will be allowed one (1) 1-hour break to take care of life stuff. The 1-hour break must take place during the event and cannot be used to finish early.
Prizes will be raffled off during the duration of the event, and during Gamer Night, and will be posted before August 12th. Prizes will include, but are not limited to ... a Apple iPad, a GSkill KM780 RBG Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Razer Gaming Headphones, Amazon Gift Cards, Steam Gift Cards and multiple Tenacious Store shopping sprees.
