Hey everyone!
It's here again! May 1st is OpenCommunity's birthday! To celebrate, I thought we could get together and have a little fun evening as a sort of "OC Decides" situation. Just hanging out, doing stuff in-game, we can also do an event, or just do some catching up!
 
Hope to see you there!

What is the MS Toga Party?
Toga Party for MS is a charity fundraiser for Multiple Sclerosis care and research, happening on both EU & NA servers in GW2, with a 10-year history going back to GW1!
The event will be on Saturday, May 11, with the official kickoff at 19:00 CEST, with hours of fun events and activities, cool prizes, and on-air legendary giveaways!
On EU side, we are also going to be doing some pre-events, starting at 16:00 CEST, to get everyone into the party mood!
You can drop in at any time during the event to hang out or join the next activity, or you can stick around throughout the entire event for maximum fun & prizes!
 
How to join?
To join the event, keep an eye out on LFG, or join by connecting to one of the hosts' voice platforms, where they'll help you get into the right map!
Since the Toga Party happens simultaneously on EU and NA, EU hosts might organise some pre-events or other activities to compensate for the evening start, so keep an eye out for any afternoon events!
Host information will be announced here after the final volunteer meeting on April 27th!
 
Fundraiser Information
We are fundraising for the MS Society of Canada, and the money will go to international research grants! You can find the fundraiser here: http://mssoc.convio.net/goto/toga19
You can also redeem this donation with OpenCommunity, to get extra shinies and a nice MS Toga 2019 badge - you can find this info on our donate page!
Anyone who donates to the fundraiser and redeems their reward using the "Redeem Badge" button can have their donation added to their OpenCommunity supporter reward progress, as well as get the exclusive MS Toga Party 2019 website and TS badge! Any donation over $10 CAD is also eligible to receive an MS Toga 2019 pin or magnet!
 
Activities
During the event, there'll be tons of activities where players can compete for prizes, and there'll be some legendary on-air giveaways, and tons of fun stuff to do!
The activities during the event will be taking place in Divinity's Reach, as well as certain starter areas. Our coordinators will be leading the event in squad chat as well as in voice, and regularly communicating any necessary info in other chat channels!
Participation is open to everyone, including free-to-play and low-level players, and there are no specific prerequisites for joining!
Balloon Brawl What better way to celebrate the onset of warm temperatures than to have a fun water balloon fight? The Balloon Brawl is a fun free-for all battle that anyone can participate in!
Tonic Race The Tonic Race will test your racing skill on equal footing - no mounts, no special abilities, just you, transformed into something adorable, and the wide open world! Note that tonics will be provided! 
Fashion Wars Our longest-running event, Fashion Wars is truly an all-time favorite. Bring your best, most original, creative, dramatic, or fun looks to the runway, and please the judges! This year's theme: Orange is the New Black! 
Scavenger Hunt The Scavenger Hunt tests your speed as well as your wit! Participants will receive a number of hints about various locations, people, or indeed objects that they must locate, and then it's just a matter of piecing it all together! 
And many more!
In addition to the four main events, there will also be a plethora of smaller, fun activities, on-air prize giveaways, and other fun events and mini-games!

What is the Community Assembly?
The Community Assembly is a community-wide meeting open to everyone, where we can share plans for the upcoming future of the community, hear ideas from our members and discuss any questions, quandaries and concerns people might be having related to the community.
Anyone can come along and voice their concerns, ask questions, share ideas, as well as ask for clarifications on any matters regarding the community
 
What will be the big topics?
Any topics can be brought up by members, but major topics that will be brought up by the OC staff relate to the changes in the community, what we hope they will achieve, and the future we're hoping to build for the community.
We'll be discussing the aftermath of Toga Party 2019, as well as our plans for June, including Tyria Pride, and the public announcement of the GW2 League! More topics might accrue over time as we get closer to the assembly!
 
And as always, if you'd like to discuss other topics, don't be afraid to bring them up!
Whether you have questions yourself, or you'd just like to come and hear what others have to say or what the plans for the future are, we hope to see you at the 4th Community Assembly!

Hello, everyone!
June is just around the corner, and just like every year, we will be organising Tyria Pride, an in-game march across all of Central Tyria to show support to our LGBTQ+ friends & guildies!
The Tyria Pride event is planned for end of June, our current most likely candidate being the 2nd to last weekend of the month! On top of that, we're hoping to do tons of pre-events all around June, and here's where you come in!   To pull this off, and make Tyria Pride bigger than ever, we're inviting everyone to join us on the Tyria Pride volunteer / planning meeting, which will be happening on May 25th!  
Meeting Information
Date: Saturday, May 25th
Time: 12 PM CDT | 19:00 CEST Teamspeak address: OpenCommunity   The meeting is open to both EU & NA volunteers! Whether you're a guild, a group, a community, or just an individual who wants to help out, join the meeting and see how you can get involved!  
Meeting Topics
Topics that we'll be discussing on the meeting will be finalizing all the event specifics, including locking in the dates, planning and discussing pre-events, as well as picking our fundraiser goal!
Each year, during the event, we highlight a different LGBTQ+ related fundraiser. 2016: Orlando Pulse Club victims fund 2017: Rainbow Railroad, an organisation that helps LGBT individuals escape violence & persecution in their home countries 2018: The Human Rights Campaign Foundation For this year, we've got a couple ideas, such as ILGA, the International Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association, but we're open to all suggestions until the fundraiser goal is locked in after the meeting. Our goal this year is to find an organisation which benefits the lives of queer people on an international level, and focuses on helping individuals directly.
