Hey there group-ies! Here's a gigantic dump of all things RTX as far as RT SideQuest goes!
Did you see that we launched our new event scheduler? Check it out at http://rtsidequest.org/events! It's already populated with the full RTX SideQuest schedule, but we're going to be adding a special NEW event on there later today. If you subscribe to the Quest Log, you already know about it! We'll also be announcing it on all our social media channels, so keep your eyes peeled on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook.
Have you heard about what we're doing for RTSQ Presents this year?
As in prior years, we're going to be helping community groups put together their own meet-ups at RTX by awarding $200 grants to 5 community groups selected from our pool of applicants! That's right, through RTSQ Presents: Community Events, you and your community group could get $200 for your community event just by filling out an application! We're only accepting applications until TUESDAY, JULY 28TH and then we'll select our grant recipients.
We're also hosting a NEW part of RTSQ Presents along with The Angels called RTSQ Presents: Community Content. We're renting out the Alamo Drafthouse (The Ritz) on Thursday afternoon to show a bunch of YOUR content! Best of all, tickets are FREE! Sure, you'll have to pay for food and drinks, but not a movie ticket! Get the Drafthouse experience without having to shell out $12 for a movie that you don't care about! Want your content to be featured? Fill out a submission form at http://rtsidequest.org/rtsq-presents/community-con... before NEXT FRIDAY, JULY 31ST. Want to attend? Head over to http://drafthouse.com/movies/rtsq-presents-communi... where tickets will be available VERY SOON. There are only about 175 seats available, so get them as soon as you can!
You already got your tickets for RTX SideQuest, right? Hopefully you did, because there are only 14 tickets left for our pre-RTX Cocktail Party & Charity Auction! Grab yours ASAP at http://rtsidequest.org/tickets! For those of you who bought All-Access Badges, you'll be able to pick up your badge starting at 5:00PM, THURSDAY AUGUST 6TH, at the Radisson Hotel & Suites Austin Downtown (Same place as the auction). You'll need your confirmation email and some form of ID to get your badge. We also recommend bringing a lanyard to put your badge on!
Don't know what to pack for RTX? Let us help! We've revived our Anatomy of an Adventurer's Pack series to help you plan appropriately! Our first new post comes from @jfrosinski, but we've got at least three more planned between now and RTX!
Looking for the best places to eat in Austin? You're in luck! The RTSQ Guide is getting revamped for 2015! We're hoping to launch the update next week, but don't worry! It'll still have all the same locations and categories that it did before. So bookmark http://rtsq.org/guide for all your Austin eats!
RT SideQuest will also have a booth at RTX! We're going to be taking donations for all of our supported charities, including AbleGamers, Child's Play, Children's Miracle Network (via Extra Life), Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas, and Operation Supply Drop. We'll have tons of donation rewards available, including t-shirts designed by @scheree, a new Quest Coin for 2015, and other fun goodies.
We're also going to be giving out personalized recommendations for where to eat via The RTSQ Gude and our expert knowledge of Austin! And finally, we'll try to help you connect with the community by pointing out cool community groups to join!
Are you a community group leader that wants to have your group featured at the RTSQ booth at RTX? Let us know and we'll make it happen!
Okay! I *think* that covers everything! Questions? Comments? Concerns? Exploding kittens?
