    In an effort to bring more people to TOG and to the console division I have decided that we need to take a big step.

    As many of you have possibly seen on your XBOX dashboard under the "Community" tab, XBOX weekly runs the "Community Playdate." A date in which any players send friend requests to a few XBOX live members who are a part of a "community" of some sort to play a specific game. I have seen many of these come and go and thought numerous times, "TOG should host one."

    Now's the time boys!!!!

    This would be GREAT exposure for TOG in soooo many ways. We would have the TOG name plastered all over XBOX. And possible interest in our mature gaming community.

    Here's what I need from you guys. I need at the LEAST four members who would be willing to give up 3 hours of their time to play some Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. This is the most popular game right now, and many of us Console Toggers have it in common.

    Any number can join up for this, but I need a minimum of four.

    REMEMBER: These are held on a sunday. Which means MONDAY for you aussies. Times are generally around 8 o'clock EST. Which makes it early afternoon for you.

    PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN YOU POST YOUR RSVP HERE.

    I need to get enough interested and then I will go through the steps of contacting the people in XBOX necessary.

    Lets get together to get the TOG name out there and have some fun at the same time!!!!!!!!!!!!

    RSVP here if you're interested and are aware of the potential time constraints.

    FOE

    PS: Yes Mongrel, I have already okayed all of this through Father. He'll be making a Global announcement on the forums if we get this to work!!!!! :D

    So if I am reading the clocks on the Inter Webs right:

    8pm Sunday US EST =

    QLD = 11am Monday
    NSW, VIC, TAS, ACT = 12pm Monday
    WA = 9am Monday
    NT / SA = 10.30am Monday

    Sorry mate I will still be slaving away at work. Hope you guys have a great time.

    Look forward to the report on how it went :D

    KEEP IN MIND: Judging from past Playdates, those times are NOT set in stone. I think they are flexible. Just post if you are interested.

    Goalie, WOAH mate.

    I haven't even started the process with XBOX man.

    This thread was to see if we had enough interested.

    Once that happens, I will set everything up with XBOX (if they accept us) and THEY will set the date. I will keep you guys updated on everything, but there is no date as of yet.

    Ooo crap, we are at the mercy of Microsoft... this might not end well.

    SO IF WE WANT THIS TO HAPPEN I NEED ONLY TWO MORE PEOPLE INTERESTED IN DOING THIS AND THEN I CAN SEND AN EMAIL OFF TO XBOX.

    Cause I need to include the gamertags of the people who will be participating, and so far I have myself, Oldskool, and possibly Goalie. Goalie are you able to do this for sure? Once I give you the date?

    I would love to but as many of you know I have no net connection for my XBox for the forseeable future.
    I think its a great idea though.
    Also remember that the Community Playdates are regional so if the issue is that players have trouble making it for this time, there is always the possibility of participating in the Community Playdates for Aus/NZ or UK or wherever.

    Dave! How have you been mate, we have missed you around here. Why can't you hook up your XBOX to the Inter-Webs?

    I don't think today was the date ... He still needs a couple of more players before he can submit the application if I am reading this thread right.

    But I am going to give you +1 for your enthusiasm :bigthumbsup:

    Ya goalie, we need at least 2 more to be interested in this before I can even send a request to XBOX.

    TWO MORE PEOPLE, PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Once I get my five people, I can send a request to XBOX and THEY will give us the day. Darn I feel bad that you took today off mate, but remember I will tell you what the actual date is when and IF we get accepted.

    EDIT: YAY! AREP! Thanks man! One more person guys and I can submit the application to XBOX!!!! ONE MORE!!!!!!
