Hey fellow Mitten dwellers!
So, yeah, it's been a while since our last news post. But, this one is full of info on things you're going to want to know about!
First off, it's almost that time of year again, Extra Life. One of RT's favorite charities to support, as well as our own. Who wouldn't love playing games to raise money for children's hospitals. Once again, Rooster Teeth has a Super Team and we are one of the teams on it! You can join the team and/or donate here! Just like last year Rooster Team is hosting a community stream one week and having their own the next. The dates for those are November 4th and 11th.
Speaking of the community stream, we have submitted an application to be a part of it this year. We won't know any specifics, or if we even made the cut, until we hear back from RT. Even if they don't have an open slot, I'm sure the people planning on running our stream will still want to do one. It is #4theKids after all. Once we know more details, you'll know them too.
Most of the discussion and planning for the Extra Life streams is taking place in our Discord. Haven't checked it out yet? You can find it at >https:/discord.gg/De99m9f. The folks there have been quite busy lately, what with planning a stream or two and also some possible meet ups on top of asking everyone's opinion and preference on hot dogs.
That's right, a meet up was suggested and planned by our lovely Gents and Ladies in the RT Michigan Discord! And, of course, we admins are all for it. The plan is to meet on November 18th at 3pm in Ann Arbor. Specifically at a Japanese ramen place called Slurping Turtle located at
608 E Liberty St Ann Arbor, MI 48104
Plans for what to do afterwards are still up in the air. So far some suggestions are just hanging out somewhere nearby, checking out one of the local arcades, catching a movie, or even getting some bubble tea. We'll have a sign up and suggestion sheet as things get a little closer.
On another note, there are a couple of conventions here in Michigan in the coming weeks. A couple of us will be at Grand Rapids Comic-Con October 20-22, and even more of us will be attending Youmacon in Detroit November 2-5. If you are going to these or any other Con coming up, and want to meet up or hang out, let each other know in the comments. Even if it's just lunch or a group photo op, it's always a great time to meet your fellow RT Michiganders and put names to faces.
Also, there has been some interest in see Star Wars: The Last Jedi as a group this December. If you're interested in something like that, let us know. @JoeFace got some of us together for The Force Awakens and he's hoping we could do it again!
As always, if you want to host a meet up or a game night, or just have an idea for one, feel free to email us at roosterteethmichigan(at)gmail(dot)com. It's the most reliable way to be assured to reach all of us admins. You can also follow the group on Twitter and Facebook.
Oh and feel free to jealously mock hate @SamWaldo who gets to fly across the pond for RTX London. Some people have all the luck
Until next time,
