Tip of the Hats 2017 announced

August 12, 2017

Around this time of the year, office supplies stores are pumping out the back-to-school advertisements on the TV as a reminder to parents that yes, their kids need to buy a new pack of pencils for school. Now, this isn't just because you get a better bargain for a pack of pencils, but when your schoolmate asks, "hey, can I borrow a pencil from you?", chances are you're never going to see that pencil again.

That's not the case here. I might not have that pencil James nicked from you in Grade 2, but I have something I know you've been wanting to see again. Tip of the Hats, your favorite hat-tipping, bass-fishing, chuckle-giving charity livestream, is back for September 22-24, and you can watch all the shenanigans once again at twitch.tv/tipofthehats.

Tip of the Hats 2018 poster

Since 2013, Tip of the Hats has raised over $500,000 for Children's Oncology Services, which offers camps and other educational and excursion programs throughout the year that allow children with cancer to just be kids. Now, they're back to raise more money with a bunch of fresh variety, games, and familiar faces, all from a live studio at Esports Arena in Santa Ana, CA.

What's that, you still want your pencil back? Listen, I'll talk with James about it, but there's something else I think you're going to like. Tip of the Hats 2017 is inviting you over to come watch the stream on the big screen! While the studio itself will not be public, Tip of the Hats is hosting a live viewing party on the main floor of Esports Arena for attendees.

Want to purchase a ticket, or see more info? Head over to tipofthehats.org for all the sweet deets, and follow the official Twitter @TipoftheHats for all the updates. Donations open September 15, so if you've been wondering how to spend your money or what to do with all those hats and keys, consider donating them to their cause to help a kid enjoy…well, enjoy being a kid.

I kind of wish instead of overwatch everyday we'd have tf2 community pub time everyday, I do understand that overwatch is a popular game though.

I also feel like pubg is going to be impossible to get viewers outside of the tf2 community on since it's so over saturated is bigger streams.

Super excited for the event anyways :D

Thank you to people who enjoy my renegade writing, thank you as well to people who liked the poster, happy to do it for Tip of the Hats once again!

Big shoutout to SedimentarySocks for making some custom models like the kid bases and the polaroid, and to Oatmeal for screenshots of his sweet map from the 2016 TF2Maps Detailing Mini-Contest.
