WHAT
Tenacious 24-Hour Charity Gaming Marathon - Part II

WHEN
Saturday, August 12th
From 9:00am to 9:00am on Sunday

WHERE
Mumble ... and the games/activities of your choice

TO BENEFIT
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.

PART DEUX?!
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).

Once or maybe twice a year, Tenacious hosts what we've come to know as 'Gamer Night' ... a community wide event dedicated to the gamer in all of us. It's the one night we allow the real world to fade into the background while we celebrate the friendships and the history that we've collectively built together over the course of 8 years ... carefully orchestrating a symphony of awesomeness, and establishing Tenacious as the premier destination for the multi-core, in it for the fun of it gamer.

Gamer Night is a night to play games ... any games. Whether you've been active or been away, whether you are currently playing in one of our two larger MMO chapters or whether you play any of the other popular games currently being played. It doesn't matter. Just join us and play some games. Get away from the real world for one night with your friends and community mates and have some fun!

We'll decorate the night with plenty of fun community activities, raffle prize giveaways and inner-community Team Fortress matches ... hell, we might even throw in some Karaoke and some Trivia.

It's been 8 years since Tenacious planted its flag in the MMO and the gaming world. Time to celebrate all you've built, all you've accomplished and all the friends you've made ... and time to get back to the one thing that brought us all together in the first place ...

G.A.M.I.N.G.

Greetings Tenacious Gamers!

What a truly unbelievable thing all of you did in participating in our first annual 24-hour charity gaming marathon. What an amazing community this is, giving back in such a profound and 'together' manner. I couldn't be prouder to be a part of it.

All participants in the marathon, no matter if you finished or not ... just that you gave the effort and made a personal deal of the cause ... will receive a custom designed Tenacious wristband (pictured below). Simply PM me here on the site (click on my avatar just above this thread, then click on my name, then start conversation. Or just go to your inbox and start a new conversation) and give me your name and address and I'll mail it to you.

There were many give aways and prizes awarded along the way. If you won a Tenacious Mouse Pad, or a Tenacious T-Shirt, those orders will go in this week and will take a couple of weeks to be mailed to you, as they are custom made. A picture of the T-shirt is shown below.


In all, we raised:

  • $818 in Paypal donations from Tenacious members and direct donations from @Mizzvaine's twitch viewers
  • $1,900 was raised during @Mizzvaine's Twitch Stream Event (AMAZING!)
  • $1,900 of Mizzvaine's donations were matched by the sponsor
  • $2,000 will be donated by the sponsor on behalf of all Tenacious members that finished the marathon

Welcome my friends to the 1st Annual Tenacious Gamers Charity Gaming 24-Hour Marathon. My company, in support of The University of Iowa Children's Miracle Network Hospital, will sponsor and donate $50 per Tenacious Gamer that finishes the marathon, up to $2,000 ... and a weekend of BMW Shuttle Service for each Tenacious member that finishes above that.

It is free to join the marathon for Tenacious Gamers. You are welcome and encouraged to seek sponsors yourselves if you choose to donate aside from the marathon. However, there is no cost to you as the gamer.

There will also be a competition group .... those gamers competing against each other to see who can game the longest. Entry into the competition group and the prizes awarded are listed below.



TO JOIN
First - sign up by posting in this thread that you will be participating
Second - To join the marathon, simply log into Mumble by 5:00pm EST on Saturday, April 1st. Game as long as you can, with the ultimate goal being able to make it 24 hours straight to earn your donation. When the marathon starts, your Mumble ID will be changed to include (24hr Marathon) after your name.

WHAT TO DO
It doesn't matter what games you play, as long as you're playing games. Organized Movie Night will also be an acceptable distraction, as long as it's in Mumble and as long as it's on the first night

TO FINISH
Having started @ 5:00pm EST on...

Greetings Tenacious Gamers!

Please note that we are migrating today to a NEW Mumble VOIP server. The new server will offer more bandwidth per person and a better gaming experience. All channels have been imported from our old server, so it will look just the same.

We'll be closing the old server tonight at midnight EST (Sunday night, 11/20/16, @ 11:59pm EST)

Officers need to be in Mumble for me to renew their access to admin functions from the old server. If you are not gaming , just hang out in the AFK channel

ENJOY!

Congratulations Tenacious on your collective 100,000th forum post!

Post #37 in the Movie Night? (Making a Comeback) thread by @Amelia Nitsah/cotemaxime was the 100,000th post on our forums.

Tenacious thanks each and every poster for helping make Tenacious the forum driven community that it is.

A bit of history as well ... we don't actually know what the count is for all 7.1 years that we've been together. While the forums migrated without issue when we switched from VBulletin to Xenforo a couple of years ago, they did not fare so well when we originally left GuildOMatic for our own domain back in 2010.

The actual number of posts since our founding is probably in the 110,000 range

WELL DONE!
