Checklist time…

So, with Sick Kids Save Point fast approaching, how ready are you for a video games marathon in 2 weeks? Here’s a wee checklist to help you work it out:

1. Have you set up your Just Giving page? Its very quick, just follow THIS LINK.
Remember to personalise it, people respond better to personal stories, and photos! You’d be surprised how many pages still have a pair of trainers as their avatar..

2. Are you following us on twitter and facebook? You must keep everyone informed during your marathon by posting on our facebook page, tweeting using the #sksp hashtag, or if you’re live streaming or vlogging let us know the url and we’ll post them all on this site. We need to know you’re still up, and what you’re playing.

3. Have you worked out where and when you’re playing? If you’re playing at home, does whoever you live with know the TV will be out of action for 24 hours? If you’re playing with others have you worked out whose house? If you’re going to Twitch Gaming, have you let them know? Also work out what time you want to start – An early start means you’ll be going to bed in the morning and may mess up your internal clock, but an evening start means you’re looking at 36 hours or so awake!

4. Have you asked your closest friends and family to sponsor you? In the last 2 years most of our sponsorship came from non-gamers. Part of the point of Sick Kids Save Point is to improve the image of our hobby, and now’s your chance to show that some good can be done by playing games. Tell them about the charity, and why you’re doing it. Getting sponsored isn’t as hard as you think, but you do need to ASK PEOPLE to sponsor you, otherwise it’ll all be for nothing.

Good Luck! We can’t wait to follow the carnage online…

Cometh the HOUR

So here we are, on the brink of something special. Are we prepared? Do we have water, coffee, eyedrops and the latest firmware?

The first participant kicking off is Ifor, who will be playing from midnight on Friday morning! He’ll be updating us on the Official Playstation forums, and on Facebook. Go for it Ifor – you are the SKSP pioneer, the pathfinder, the biker scout. I shall be monitoring your spirits with trepidation…
Isla claims she’ll be next, because she’s going to start ‘as soon as I wake up’- roundabout 1am…! She’ll edit together a video of her updates, which I’ll post on here.

Jack and Jamie will start their Halo marathon at 8pm on friday. Here’s hoping they get a power nap in before that evening start! You can follow their progress on twitter.

An hour later Wayne starts his 500 challenges Burnout effort. He’ll be tearing up Paradise city on very little sleep, unless he can also get some power naps in first!

Saturday Morning sees most people starting, with games designer FreakyZoid (Anthony) getting underway at 8am. He’ll be updating via twitter, and you can read his preperations on his blog..

Myself, Mike, Ross and Stuzo are kicking off at 9am. The first three will be streaming our marathon LIVE here. Come laugh at us. Stuzo will be streaming his effort here.
An hour later, DowntoforitX will be providing a far more entertaining stream I’m sure, as they start proceedings at 10am, as will Owen who will keep us up to date on facebook.

I don’t have exact times for the rest of you yet, but I know that Stephen and Malcolm are due to kick off on Friday, and the last to start will be Anthony Bowers – a weekend late due to filming commitments…

You can track most of our participants via our twitter list. Don’t forget to tell us what your playing and how spirits are.

Remember that we are making a difference to some very sick children..

Good luck, and may the force be with you.
