February and March Community Newsletter

February

Now that the freezing month of love has come and gone; March comes to us, not only with the warm embrace of spring, but also the exhilarating feeling of coming last in your March Madness pool. But alas, it is still important to remember the events the past month, and we at EdgeGamers do this through our Community Newsletters. So why don’t you click around this newsletter and look through the awesome changes that have happened in the month of February 2019.

March

April, a month of rain, a month of bunnies, but most importantly – the heart of spring. During the month of March, we have all risen to great heights as individuals and together as a community. Instead of planning how to catch the Easter bunny this year, take a couple of minutes to read over the March Community Newsletter, and re-live some of the great memories you’ve made during March 2019.

Check some community highlights from the popular battle royale game Apex Legends.

We had an important community meeting on March 23rd.
