The RackerGamers Extra Life 2020 Celebration Day comes up on us in a mere couple weeks!! The weekend of this Nov. 7th. If you haven’t joined the RackerGamers Extra Life Team. Click on those words yo and dooeet!! ;0 ;~)
Its been a different year to be sure. Things have been far quieter than normal. Everything from planning, the lead up, and the event itself will be different.
While we can’t gather together like we have for the last 11 years! So we’re going to gather, from where we will all respectively be, around the RackerGamers Discord.
Sharing our games, our streams, LFGs, show off our tasty snacks and foods, etc. The whole weekend! Pop in and out. See whats up. Catch up. Lets share, commiserate, and relax in all that will be our wonderful RG Extra Life mayhemery.
Lets “Game on!” For all the kiddos out there. And raise as much and preferably more than we have before. o// <3 =^.^=
Since there can’t be the usual in-person Halloween Parade at the hospital this year. They are asking people to send them videos wishing the patients, aka Da Kidz!, a “Happy Halloween!” The videos will be combined into one and played through out the closed circuit TVs on Halloween.
Any RackerGamers willing/able to participate please do! And any “Active Duty” Rackers please spread this message inside the rack please and poor favor.
Lets give our founding cause, friends, and kiddos at the Childrens Hospital of San Antonio (CHoSA) some Spooktacular Love!
Hello All Ladies and Germs! ..specially you germs! ;0 ;~)
The Childrens Hospital of San Antonio is reaching out to gather that much needed PPE (Personal Protecition Equipment). Whether its teh cash monies. Or the actual blessed equipement itself face masks, face shields, scrubs, feet/shoe covers, hand sanitizers, etc.!!!
Got a couple bux?! Thats fine! Got a couple hundred or more. Thats fine too. Its all equally much and greatly desired and needed. No one person is going to really help. Its going to be all of us together with the 1$, the $100, the $23.36 donations. Or in this case perhaps most importantl an in-kind donations of the above supplies if you got them.
Please see the below link and give anything anyway that you can!

Our dreams are BIG! And our expectations are HIGH! With this finally. At last. Comes the time. That will afford us the opportunity to make all of it. And much much more yet to be. A REALITY!
So many people. So many years. So much time, talent, and treasure expended thus far. I hope you know who you are when I say how profoundly thankful and appreciative I am of each of you. There is NO doubt in my mind that we/I would not be here without each of you.
This give-a-way was cancellled last year due to poor planning/execution on our part and resultant participation. Stay tuned for a much better iteration this year in 2020.
For every $50 donated to our friends’ SA Flavor Extra Life page. You can get one chance to win a signed Atari 2600 and Pacman game. By Atari Founder Nolan Bushnell! And with it comes a mini-plethora of additional classic Atari 2600 games.
Check the below link and make it rain TEH MONIES #ForTheKids! And obtain this rare, if not once in a life time opportunity, to obtain an original Atari 2600 and Pacman signed by the Founder of Atari. Plus several other classic games along with!
This is admittedly a week or so-ish more delayed that I planned. Getting back into the swing of our day jobs post-game-a-thon recovery does that I spose.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you to all the new faces. Even more thankfulness to the repeat old faces. And the most mostest of all those who’ve been with us since almost if not the beginning in 2009.
I did not get to “make the rounds” like I have in years’ past. But I did notice each and every one of you. And never once, as we all notch one more year together, am I not deeply and profoundly grateful for your participation and companionship.
I could go on. Most of you KNOW I could. But I want to leave it at that. We did good this year I think all things considered. As always its always ever onward and upward together!
Arthur Wilson CEO of RackerGamers, Inc.
p.s. for all those who still have some gas in the tank. Or might find some “fortnite style” or some some. We all have until Dec. 31st to get any more donations and/or fundraising that we can muster.
Bear in mind it can sometimes take as much as 35-45 mins for all the Wave Promo Code emails to get sent out. If previous years are an indication. As our team membership increases. The slower it is to process and/or release the emails seem to be.
As a separate registration. Please consider entering Promo Code icanhazhalpz if you want to volunteer to help during Setup Friday, during the event, and perhaps most importantely Tear Down Sunday Moaning at the end. When we gots to pack all our shtuffs up and head home for the big sleep!
