An invitation to all club members to join us for the annual
24 Hour Charity Gameathon – 13th and 14th of June 2014


From a half conceived text message to the greatest idea ever by the club committee, this event is an opportunity for us a club members to do what we love and what we do best in order to raise money for a very good cause. This year, the cause is the Meals on Wheels Queensland.

Starting at 6pm on Friday the 13th of June, club members are invited to purchase a $20 ticket for 24 hours straight of gaming goodness. Do you have the intestinal fortitude to do what you love for a whole 24 hours? During the evening and on to the next day, several other fundraising events will be running as well – see below for more details.

WHO IS INVOLVED?
All current club members are invited to participate. If you are not a club member, but would be interested in participating, please do not hesitate to contact a committee member and join the club.

Aside from those participating in the 24 hour Gameathon, we will need a raft of support and help on the day, if you would be interested in helping again please contact the committee.

WHERE IS IT TAKING PLACE?
At our usual venue - Caboolture Combined Services Hall, 21 Hayes Street Caboolture

HOW WILL MONEY BE RAISED?
We have several ways in which the club aims to raise funds for the charity.
-Through our Everyday Heroes page - please check it out and share with family and friends. Everyone is welcome to contribute; all contributions go directly to our chosen charity.

-Ticket sales to the event - one ticket for 24 hours gaming is $20 for QNK members.

-Gamers Raffle - a hamper of goodies every gamer wants and needs is up for grabs, with tickets being sold during the event. You must be present at the draw to win!

-The WORLD FAMOUS Reroll Tin - At any stage during the night, placing $1 in the Reroll tin will allow you to reroll a single dice. You may do this AS MANY TIMES AS YOU LIKE! You must, however, wear the reroll hat until the next person donates for a reroll...

-Buy/Swap/Sell space - a $5 donation will purchase you 1/2 a trestle table's worth of space to display your Buy/Swap/Sell items.


SO WHAT DO I GET?
For your entry fee, you get to play games for 24 hours straight! You also get to have that warm, fuzzy feeling that lets you know that all your effort is going towards a good cause. Also, who can pass up 24 hours with the bunch of great guys that is QNK?

Food during the event will be up to players to provide for themselves, so bring plenty of snacks!

SO WHAT IS BEING PLAYED?
That’s up to the attendees! So far, we have a 40k, X-Wing, Warhammer Fantasy, Bolt Action, Blood Bowl (card and board versions), Role Playing (Edge of the Empire) and everyone’s favourite Nintendo game… Super Smash Brothers!

If you would like to organise anything else, please feel free. Posting on our Facebook page or our WargamerAU forum will be great places to start.

ANY CONDITIONS?
Well, yes. Obviously an event like this we need to lay down some guidelines…
-All under 18 players need a permission form delivered by a parent or guardian to a committee member. Please see committee members for forms over the coming weeks.

-The hall will be locked, with very restricted pass outs, from 11pm until 6am.

-Alcohol is not permitted. Smoking outside the building ONLY.

-Finally, any serious anti-social behaviour will see players asked to leave, with continuing membership to be reviewed by the committee


MORE INFORMATION?
For more information, or to contribute in any way, please visit our club forum on WargamerAU forum or our Facebook page. We look forward to seeing you there and your help in raising funds for a very worthy cause.

Hey everyone,

Big thanks to everyone who came to the 24hr Charity Gameathon yesterday. I don't have a final tally yet, but it looks like we've raised a good amount of money for Meals on Wheels.

Hope you had a great time and get some sleep today!

QNK Committee
