Hello, RT Florida members!
Starting today, we will be posting weekly updates each Monday to let you know what's happened with our group, what will happen, and how awesome each and every one of you are. Kind of like AHWU, but ours is longer, written, and RTFLWU doesn't roll off the tongue the same way.
First off, we had our second Drunk Gaming session this past Saturday and the turnout was even larger than we thought. Seriously guys, you blew us away. As always, we recorded the Google Hangout and posted it to our YouTube page for people to review, enjoy, and, in some people's cases, relive what they had already forgotten. We understand that the videos are 8 hours long (seriously, how does only one person "die" each time), so that's why we're going to do a "best of" video for each session. More information on that to come.
For anyone who is unfamiliar with Drunk Gaming, it's a monthly event we do online via Xbox One and Google Hangout because, let's face it, that's a lot of what Florida is. The running joke, for those of you who are not aware, is that one person ends up dying during this alcohol-heavy event in the sense that they disappear from the stream and pass out as if they have really died. First it was myself, then it was Clayton. Who will it be next? Stay tuned for information on April's session.
Don't forget March 20th is our next meet up, located in Orlando at the WhirlyDome. More information can be found in our previous post here. The first one was a blast with every one in December at Cloak and Blaster and we're going to make this one even better. March Meet Up Madness- Now with name tags! Trust us, name tags will make all the difference for people who are new or haven't shown their faces yet. But we're looking forward to seeing all those beautiful mugs next weekend! Speaking of meet ups...
Our dear other admin, Will, is working on putting together the first North Florida meet up in, you guessed it- North Florida! The details are still being worked out as it is still in super pre-planning stages, but be sure to voice your input and fill out the following form so we can put this together to involve as many people as possible. Because, as we've said before, this is a community-driven group and none of this would be possible without any of you.
Probably one of the most important updates of this post: the admins of each community group have come together and decided to do a large, international event for Rooster Teeth's anniversary on April 1st. We're still hashing out the details, but the gist of it is that since RT does so much for their community, we want to give a little back and show how much we love and appreciate them. Events may include a video from each community, jam packed into one love-filled compilation (think AHWU intros), RWBY: Grimm Eclipse tournament, international (not just nationwide- we have communities across the pond as well) simultaneous meet ups, and live streams. We aren't asking anything of you yet, but will keep reminding you to be involved and, when the time comes, and volunteer to participate if you are available. We'll keep you updated through the group here on the RT site, as well as via Facebook and Twitter.
Rooster Rumble will be making its comeback soon as well. In a friendly competition between the RT Community groups, teams battle tournament style for, well, basically bragging rights. That's about al you get, that and general fun. More information can be found in the post here, as well as more updates to come.
In general, you can also find us at the following social sites where we post funny content, interact with other RT community groups, and keep you up to date with the most recent happenings in RT Florida.
We love seeing everything you guys do, so occasionally we're going to feature a member from the group and something awesome they've done. First up is FusionHD because of their recent post about RWBY Vol. 3 (including the edit) paired with their sponsor display title, it made me laugh and then sigh in pain. <3 you!
