Event description

Description

RackerGamers is participating in Extra Life once again, and we want you to join us! Extra Life is a global event where gamers of all types play for 24-hours to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Children's Hospital of San Antonio, Christus Santa Rosa is our primary beneficiary, but you can play for the Children's Miracle Network Hospital that is closest to your heart or home.

TICKETS ARE CURRENTLY OPEN FOR VOLUNTEERS ONLY! Please check back periodically for Game Day tickets. We expect Game Day tickets to be available 30-60 days before Game Day. As always, Extra Life Team RackerGamers members will have first access to all tickets.

Once again, our Game Day Planning team will be hard at work trying to obtain funds to cover event costs, and trying to keep Game Day tickets free. While we fully expect tickets to be free, we expect every attendee to raise at least $25 for Extra Life. This is why we all come together - to Play Games and Heal Kids. Game Day is a charity fundraiser first, that also happens to be a pretty cool LAN and tabletop party second.

In addition, to allow everyone a chance to obtain a ticket, we are limiting tickets to two (2) per person.

As we get closer we'll provide a detailed FAQ, but for now you can check out last year's FAQ on our public RackerGamers facebook page and the RackerGamers website. To find out what you need to bring, and what is being provided for you, please see our Toolkit Page.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
Every person attending will be required to complete a waiver and release form for entering Rackspace property. Minors will need to have a parent or guardian sign for them.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Parking is available onsite. You will be able to pull inside the gate and up to the loading doors to unload any equipment. After unloading you will then park your vehicle outside the fenceline in Rackspace parking.

What can/can't I bring to the event?
We provide the space, power, excellent bandwidth, and awesome atmosphere. You bring your own gaming set up and enthusiasm for Extra Life. Bring whatever gear you need to play the games you want to play. Players are required to bring their own gear and complete setups, minus a few items (please do not bring: speakers, GIANT monitors, etc). Whether it be your PC gaming rig, monitor, keyboard, and super mouse; TV and console, board games, card games, dungeon master guide, etc.; just bring it. Your dedicated gear is your responsibility, and we recommend you label your items with masking tape or gaffers tape. We will provide you with the chair, table, power, and network. If you prefer to bring your own gaming chair instead of using our standard stacking chairs, please do so. More info on our Toolkit Page.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
rackergamer@rackergamers.org

Can I update my registration information?
Yes. And we'll be reviewing tickets weekly to make sure all information needed has been provided. Because we need to track all attendees, we may ask you to update your ticket information. We may also void duplicate tickets if we do not receive a response, so make sure to keep an eye on your email!

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No. We'll have apps to check you in with, and also a printed attendee list as a back up.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
No. We need to track all attendees, and will ask you to update your ticket information with the actual attendee names. If you have trouble updating attendee information or transferring the ticket, you can always email rackergamer@rackergamers.org.

Will food be available?
This is a Bring Your Own Food event. Drinks (water, soda, coffee, and tea) will be available for free onsite. There are also many local restaurants in the area, including several that are 24 hours.

While we are required to pay for a cleaning crew, we remind everyone to be courteous to your fellow gamers and respectful of the event space and may remind you to clean up after yourselves.
