    • RTMD Monthly Update #1: The Beginning

      2 weeks ago

      RT Maryland

      Hello RTMD Crabbies, we are pleased to present you with Monthly Update #1! In this update we are bringing you a reminder of October's meet up, more details for the Extra Life stream party, some cool new features, and a helping of comedy! (Please humour our jokes)


      Mark Your Calendars

      “RTMD Dies At the End” - Halloween Haunted Forest Meet Up:

      There’s plenty to fall in love with this October—get it?—but one of the top is the chance to meet all new friends at our Halloween spooktacular meet up. Sure, there may be some terrifying monsters, maybe an axe murderer or two, but haunted forests are safe when you have a large group of Rooster Teeth fans to scream with you! Circle Saturday, October 21st on your calendars and join us at Markoff’s Haunted Forest in Dickerson, MD. Everyone will be meeting at admin Emily’s house at 9:00 PM to carpool. Address will be provided directly to all those who RSVP.


      Please note there is a correction regarding ticket prices from last month’s update. Tickets for Oct 21st are $25 BEFORE Oct 1st, and $35 after. We apologize about the confusion y’all, but fear not, using code FRCO25 will save you 25% on your ticket! And remember, buy your tickets online for the TRAIL PASS only! Trails are where it’s at, yo.


      After shitting our pants in fear, we will be camping in admin Emily’s backyard. This is optional and you absolutely need to RSVP for this, but the more the merrier! Remember to bring a sleeping bag and pillow. The slumber party is BYOS (bring your own snacks), but if you do want to bring enough for everyone double check with an admin so we can avoid any allergy-related deaths. Be warned, there will be alcohol present and no one under the age of 21 will be able to drink. Get ready for s’mores, shenanigans, and scary stories.

      Spooky times for all!

      Ain’t No Party Like An Extra Life Party:

      It’s beginning to look a lot like Extra Life! It’s that magical time of the year when everyone in the Let’s Play family and beyond team up and lose their collective minds with wacky antics and no sleep to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Rooster Teeth’s Extra Life stream begins on Saturday, November 11th and goes on until the following morning. Were you planning on watching the stream live as it happens? Why not do so with all your favorite RTMD people? We will be throwing a live stream viewing party rife with good food, hijinks, and great company for the entire stream.


      This event would not be possible without our gracious host, Bear, and we cannot thank him enough for letting us into his home. Our community is respectful, and we know we all will keep it that way during the stream. We will be together for 24 hours, so bear in mind the courtesies of both being a guest in someone else’s home and having a ton of temporary roommates. Assholes will be sent home on their own dime.


      The party begins no earlier than 8:30 AM. The stream itself starts at 9:00 AM EST. Breakfast will be provided both mornings, but other meals and snackage are potluck-styled. Please keep in mind, there will be alcohol present and drinking laws apply. A form and sign-up sheet for bringing food will be sent out to those who RSVP. You must RSVP to either Emily, Hannah, or Bear if you will be attending, whether you want to come for the full 24 hours or can only make it for a short period of time. We are capping out at 15 people for those who wish to stay the entire 24 hours. More people are definitely welcome to come at different intervals; we would love to see you there!


      RSVPs can be made through the event on our Facebook page, or by messaging Emily, Hannah, or Bear on Discord.


      The Bay Watch:

      Got all that, but afraid you’ll forget? No worries, we now have a calendar for your viewing pleasure! Our RTMD calendar is sure to keep you updated with all the RT and RTMD events for the low, low price of $4.99! Kidding, it’s free, but we won’t say no to any...donations. (Disclaimer: this is another joke. The calendar was made out of love for ya’ll) You can find the calendar here.


      Chesapeake Surv-Bays

      We know, we know, you already did this survey. And we love you so much for that! You are our favorite child. But for everyone who missed the survey in last month’s update, or didn’t get a chance to fill it out yet,  please take a couple of minutes to do so! It’s our census of the group and we’ll be using this information in a variety of colorful and interesting ways.

      Please click here for the survey: Take me!


      Showcase

      RTMD WANTS YOU to send us submissions so that we can showcase your talents. Do you draw, animate, play an instrument, bake, write, dance, be all around awesome? Do you want to show the community your skills, but don’t have a place to do so? Well you can count on us to make this wish come true! Fill out some questions, send them to roosterteethmaryland@gmail.com, and we’ll feature you in one of our monthly updates.


      These questions are just a general idea of what we’re looking for; feel free to skip questions 2 and 5.

      1. What would you like to showcase?

      2. Can you recall what originally got you into (insert thing)?

      3. What program, process, or equipment do you use?

      4. Attach any pictures, videos, etc that you would like us to share!

      5. Would you like to provide a link to where people can find your stuff? If so, please share!

      We will take the information you submit, write up a blurb, and provide you with a preview before anything is posted. We will also accept blurbs from you if you wish to write your own. In the case that you submit, but change your mind, a request for withdrawal will be accepted up to 3 days before it is to be posted in the monthly update. We hope to see a variety of talents from our RTMD members!


      Birthdays

      Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you!

      A merry day of birth to these lovely members:


      Jess (@jessty104) on October 4th

      Chase (@CLMwolf) on October 13th


      Join us in wishing them a wonderful birthday!

      And Now...The Weather

      Oh gosh, oh man, it’s the first official update. Last month was a test run with training wheels and a plastic bubble, but this here is the big leagues. How do I look? My palms are sweaty (knees weak, arms are heavy).


      In all seriousness (that we can muster at the moment), we hope everyone has been enjoying what RTMD’s been offering so far. Can you smell what we’re cooking? Hint: it's a community of love, diversity, and Old Bay. The smell is mostly Old Bay. There’s so many wonderful things happening in the next few months! Our main goal is to keep everyone informed of all of the events and news, so we apologize in advance for all of the site, Facebook, Twitter, and Discord spam. If we could spam you on LinkedIn, we would.


      Having in-person events is fantastic, especially for a group that barely met at all a few months ago, but with our state being so oddly-shaped and everyone having active lives, we aren’t able to have as many events as we would like. In our ideal world we would have one every weekend with no schedule conflicts or time constraints and there would be free food and balloons every time. (Hannah’s ideal world also includes roller skates as the main mode of transportation and a unicorn as mayor of DC, but. We digress). With the limitations of reality in mind, we can’t stay connected face to face as much as we want, but we have plenty of ways to keep in touch with all group members in between events. Twitter and Facebook are poppin’ but the real discussions, jokes, and ridiculousness occur on our Discord.


      If you haven’t joined the RTMD Discord yet, we’d like to personally invite you to come on in. If you’ve joined but might be a little hesitant to chime in, no need to fear! We would love to hear what you have to say. We have so many people from so many different walks of life and varying senses of humor. Our community comes together for the ups, downs, and in-betweens and we want you to be a part of that. You’re part of our RTMD family.


      Now that we are officially in autumn, we wish the best for everyone’s school and work endeavors! Enjoy the pretty leaves, the pumpkin flavored everything, and the season of change. Though some of us could do without the colder weather, we have to wear sweaters already (mom’s spaghetti).


      Wishing you a happy Halloween!


      Your Friendly Neighborhood Admins,

      Emily (@Mololue) and Hannah (@hannahconda)


    • RTMD Monthly Update #0.5: The Updatenning

      1 month ago

      RT Maryland

      giphy.gifHello everyone! Welcome to RTMD Update #0.5. This neat little feature is kid-tested and mother-approved to make sure all of our members are informed and up to date every month (disclaimer: don’t quote us on that). On the first week of every month (starting in October) we will post about upcoming events, important announcements, birthdays in the RTMD community, and other cool highlights.


      Mark Your Calendars

      Hallo-weenies:

      October is the time for pretty leaves, pumpkin spice, and deathly terrifying shenanigans. Hallow your ween with us on Saturday, October 21st at Markoff’s Haunted Forest in Dickerson, MD in honor of the most sacred of candy-giving holidays. RSVPs are a must! Please let Emily and Hannah know by October 10th if you want to attend in order to get an accurate headcount (admin's site names at the bottom). Tickets are $25.00 per person (until October 13th, $30.00 after) and we strongly urge everyone to individually purchase their tickets through the website ahead of time. If necessary, please contact either admin if other arrangements need to be made. Be sure to buy a trail pass; please do not buy the town pass. You will have a completely different adventure than the rest of RTMD! We want to all be terrified together.


      We will be meeting up at 9:00PM at Emily’s house. Be sure to have your tickets handy for our carpool to the death forest. Afterwards will be a backyard camping adventure for those who don’t wish to drive home so late, want to spend more time together, or are traumatized by the forest of terror (like us!). Be sure to bring pillows and a sleeping bag. Snacks are encouraged, but if you wish to share with the class, please let us know so we can plan how much to bring and/or deal with allergies. Details and 

      Emily’s address to be privately given to everyone who RSVPs. Respecting privacy, yo!


      If you have any questions, feel free to message Hannah or Emily on the site!

      Extra Life Stream:

      As many of you are aware, Rooster Teeth’s 24-hour Extra Life Charity Stream is coming up on November 11th-12th. This is an important event to Rooster Teeth and the entire community where we band together to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. RTMD will be hosting a 24 hour viewing party to laugh, play, and exhaust ourselves alongside our favorite Rooster Teeth and Let’s Play Family personalities. Please keep an eye out for next month’s update which will provide more details and be sure to let the idea percolate in your head if you wish to attend! Remember, it’s for the kids!


      The Chesapeake Surv-Bays

      Do you like surveys? Do you like providing information online? Do you like spilling all of your deepest, darkest secrets to strangers in a Google form? What do you mean, no? Well, too bad!

      In all seriousness, we need information from y’all to plan monthly meet ups and stuff that you would enjoy. The more information provided, the more fun for RTMD!


      We will love you forever if you complete the survey, which you can find here: https://goo.gl/forms/d0wxTrLp2FqQA16l1


      Community Showstoppers

      Exciting news! RTMD will be working on a community showcase for our wonderful state. We will have more details available next month in our first edition. You can also contact Isaiah (@Izayer) if you are interested or have any questions.


      Birthday Party

      Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday to you! Happy birthday, dear everyone! We’ll be putting out birthday announcements each month to show some love to our awesome members. Be sure to double check that your birthday is listed in our member survey, and we’ll give you a shout out. Spread some birthday joy amongst each other!


      For September, we have very happy birthday wishes to Kyle (@Laxus) and Larry (@HyLarryous)!

      If you have a September birthday and would like it announced, please let us know and we will put it in October's monthly update.

      giphy.giftenor.gif


      And Now...The Weather

      We’re so excited to start pushing RTMD to be even better than before. We have tons of fun events planned, plenty of shenanigans scheduled, and a whole lot of content to enjoy. But while we are growing, we want to take the time to encourage all of you to reach out to each other. New friends are just a few mouse clicks away. Find someone you haven’t talked to much, or at all, and send them a friend request. Ask them what their favorite RT show is or what video games they play. First and foremost, RTMD is a community of individuals who enjoy Rooster Teeth, and we want to double down on that whole community thing.


      Be sure to keep in touch with the group through our RTMD social media accounts for the latest news and events!


      Stay tuned for more updates when we roll out our first full post in October! Don’t call us, we’ll call you.


      Love,

      Your Friendly Neighborhood Admins, Hannah (@hannahconda), and Emily (@Mololue)

Next is Cocktails and liquor at Firehouse Lounge, which is a bar that is literally hidden behind a bookcase). Next is some cheat snacks at P. Terry's Then on to Ginger Man, which is known for having a million different taps. (Liquor before beer, you're in the clear!)


      This is a map if you are not familiar with the area. It also has information on where we will be walking around and where we will be ending.

    • RT IRL

      4 months ago

      RT Maryland

      Hello everyone! I would like to announce a project brought to you by the inner workings of the RT Community called: RT IRL. The community knows the we are awesome and that we on a yearly basis and throughout the year hold charity events such as Side Quest, Extra Life, Operation supply drop, and so much more. RT IRL is where we go out to the public and do charity work instead of a charity fundraiser. 


      So for our first time, we will be doing one next week. All the details are down below if you would like to go to it. Now we do have a first come first serve basis concerning this particular event. If you wanted to contribute to the effort but couldn't, don't worry. We have you in mind if you couldn't hangout with us than.


      Here are the details:

      June 10th Saturday 

      10:30am-2pm

      Location: 400 S. Bond Street, Baltimore, MD 21231

      Due to health code regulations, we are asked that we do not wear short shorts, tank tops, shirts that expose the midriff, or open toe shoes. If you do not want to wear a hair net it is suggested to bring a hat instead. Must be at least 13 years of age, and volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Any volunteer under 18 needs to provide a permission slip before starting. Bring ID's just in case.
