Got another donation today, out of the blue, so, that's cool!

As the year is winding down, Extra Life is approaching $9 Million raised so far in 2016!

Also, I am officially booked to attend Extra Life United 2017, for my second year in a row.

I will be competing in another gaming tournament, with the potential to bring a portion of a $150,000 prize pool to my hospital. I have booked my flights, reserved my hotel, registered for the event, and have my transportation squared away. I may even have a dinner date with Fshguy.

However, when they announced the games included for tabletop, I play 4/6 regularly (and I am good at them), and I know the 5th one. So, I only need to learn 1 game by March. I had to try again this year.

*EDIT* If y'all are interested in coming out during one of the tournament days, and maybe watching me compete (however poorly), let me know. I can get spectator passes added to my registration.

Friday morning is the CMN Momentum end-of-the-year celebration, medal ceremony for the champions, and new year kick off, hosted my Nick Cannon. Then, Friday, March 24, afternoon, evening, and Saturday, March 25, morning is the tournament.

So, I am currently unscheduled Tuesday afternoon/evening, all day Wednesday, and Thursday morning. A friend is trying to figure her schedule out, and try to meet me there Tuesday, too, so we can do Universal on Wednesday. But, that's my ELU schedule as it stands.

Thank you again to everyone! I finished the year way ahead of any goal or expectation that I began with. It is January 1, 2017, so, I went ahead and started my 2017 fundraising page, still located at http://el.futiles.net - and made my 2017 goal $1500. Hopefully I will be forced to raise it again.

Again, thanks to everyone. I finished at $1565 raised! So, I am pretty exited about that.
Received this last week, and with just 28 days before I start my 2017 fund raising year, I wanted to do one last thank you to everyone.
