My name is Cameron and I created 907 Gamers in Nov 2013. I wanted to create a free to join community of Alaskan Gamers.
It all started with registering the domain name www.907gamers.com. A few of my gamer friends and I started inviting our gamer friends to a Facebook group. This group exploded in size. We had no idea how many gamers there are in Alaska! I'm writing this article on 4/04/2014 and we are currently at... 1041 members. We've expanded the group beyond Facebook into different networks. We have a Steam Group, Teamspeak Server, YouTube channel and Twitch.tv Channel. We continue to grow in size daily and the time has come to produce our own gamer gear.
We want to build up the community of gamers and people interested in gaming here in Alaska. This a platform for doing that. A central hub where gamers in Alaska can communicate and share ideas.
This project will allow us to get our members shirts and if we surpass our goal to even start funding our next merchandise project. If we meet our financial goal then we break even and provide shirts for our members at no cost.
If we surpass our goal, the rest of the donations spill over into creating more 907 Gamers gear such as hoodies, stickers, magnets, mouse pads, etc!
This is the beginning step towards growing into something bigger. If 907 Gamers had a budget and had funding beyond my own wallet, I think it could do big things. It's a dream of mine to eventually host the largest LAN the state of Alaska has ever seen.
Funding Goal Met... $50 Hoodie Tier unlocked.
125% Funded... $65 T-Shirt + Hoodie Combo Tier unlocked.
200% Funded... Two (2) Free 907 Gamers Stickers included with order. Example below:

If you want to donate more than $300, we'll work with you to create a new custom funding pledge goal.
907 Gamers and this Kickstarter would not be possible without the amazing members and the hard working administrative team behind the scenes. A huge thank you goes out to all those who make this the best gaming community in Alaska.
Thank you to one of our members, Rusty Musick for providing the square stickers at no cost to add to this Kickstarter. Also, thanks go out to Sam Peters for the Kickstarter Supporter Special Edition stickers and magnets. You guys rock!

Risks and challenges
We have to make our goal to make this financially feasible. Any excess funds will spill over into our next project which will start June 1st. We plan to start another Kickstarter to fund different merchandise such as hoodies and vehicle stickers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
