Now that everything's been successfully overhauled and rejigged, we're ready to get back into the saddle of actually actively existing, and just in time too, because it's almost time for OpenCommunity's birthday and the MS Toga Party!
Let's see what May has in store for us!
May 1st | OpenCommunity's Birthday!
On Wednesday, May 1st, at 20:00 CEST, we're hosting a little get-together to celebrate four years of OpenCommunity!
We'll get together on Teamspeak, and decide what we want to do from there! We could just hang out and chat and catch up, or we could try our hand at some fun events in-game, do some racing, some fun hide & seek, or revisit one of our old favorite events we haven't done in a while! The choice is yours!
On this day, we can also decide if we want to make any advance plans for May 4th!
To celebrate OpenCommunity's birthday, just like every year, any donation made to OpenCommunity will count double for the first 10 days of May! You can find the various supporter perks on our Donate page, which has just come online, after we took it down in November for our downtime!
If you donate during that time period, you'll also get the exclusive 4th Birthday Supporter badge & icon on Teamspeak! We thank you for your support!
May 4th | OC's Birthday Party
Because May 1st is a weekday, we can reserve a slightly bigger chunk of time on Saturday, May 4th, to get together and hang out! The initial plan is to get together at 18:00 CEST, but if on Wednesday we decide to meet up earlier, we can do that too!
We can again play some games, hang out in Guild Wars 2, do some events, or just chat and catch up!
May 11th | Toga Party for Multiple Sclerosis!
May 11th is the day of the Toga Party for MS, and it's going to be great!
Toga Party is a day full of fun events, legendary giveaways, and tons and tons of prizes, all with the goal of raising funds for Multiple Sclerosis care & research!
The official event is scheduled to start on Saturday, May 11th, at 19:00 CEST, but we might have some pre-events on EU before that time to get us all into the party mood, so stay tuned!
Check out the event on the calendar for more info!
May 19th | 5th Community Assembly
After Toga, we'll be having another Community Assembly where all members of our community are invited to come together and participate in open discussions regarding OpenCommunity's future, as well as discussing any big upcoming events. Check out the event on the calendar to find out more about specific topics planned for this Assembly!
The assembly is scheduled for Sunday, May 19th, at 18:00 CEST!
May 25th | Tyria Pride Volunteer Meeting
June is Pride Month, and once again, for the 4th time in a row, we'll be organising Tyria Pride! Tyria Pride is a fun get-together where we celebrate the diversity of our and the GW2 community and as always, try to raise some funds for a good cause!
If you'd like to get involved, share ideas and suggestions, or just learn more about the event, join us on the volunteer meeting!
That's it for May, as you can see we'll be keeping pretty busy!
Hope to see you at these events!
