    News & Highlights
    Winter Break Notice [Dec 23rd to Jan 8th] -  I'd like to make sure everyone is aware that next Saturday December 23rd to Monday January 8th the AJSA Xbox One Division will be on our Winter break. This means that there will be no scheduled AJSA events on the Xbox One during this time. This will a time to relax, spend with your family and/or you can try to make a dent in your video game backlog.
    Before we go on break we're going to have two weeks of events that will serve as our last set of events for 2017. During the week of December 18th we will have have a special series of Holiday themed community events, filled with unique activities for members to engage in, to end the year. Join the Angry Army on Xbox as we end the Year as we started it (playing a ton of video games!) and finalize our foundation for 2018.
    Top 10 Games of 2017 (According to Xbox) - This week we are starting the voting process for the Top 10 Games of 2017 according to Xbox One members. Similar to last year, members are to receive Club notices and messages this week asking for votes and feedback on what games that came out this year on Xbox One they really liked. We want as much participation from members in this community project as possible! Share and contribute your thoughts! The voting will last two weeks.
    End of Year Event Outline - As noted before we go on break, we're having a final series of events to close out the year. In this article, we showcase one of the last two sets of events for 2017. In a recently published forum thread, conveniently called 'Xbox Events - End of Year Outline', we share with you all our event plans for the rest of the year. If you're on Xbox and want to plan ahead, check out that thread!
    AJSA Gaming YouTube
    The AJSA 4th Year Anniversary was an awesome and fun celebration. We in the Xbox One Division held a unique series of events to commemorate the birthday of this community. If you've yet to watch the montage video of our Anniversary activities, please consider checking out the video on the AJSA Gaming Youtube channel.
    AJSA Xbox One Weekly Event Schedule [December 14th to December 17th]
    How Can I Join An Xbox One Event? - For new members/first time event participants, I highly encourage you to add all the hosts as your friend on Xbox Live (Gamertags are listed for every host below). You can also join the AJSA Xbox Club and add hosts/members there. All event and game night parties are launched from the Club. Additionally, please review our Code of Conduct.
    Communication during events are done primarily in the Xbox Live Party system. In case of emergency, we will use the AJSA Discord Channel. We accept and make adjustments for people who are shy in large groups and/or for people who have no mics.
    If by chance you do not have the host as a friend, please message the host for an invite to the game/party during the event and then exchange friend requests upon entry to the party. Most, if not all, event parties will be visible to all Xbox Club members. Look under "Looking for Group" at the start/during an event to view the event party and join up.
    If you would like to give advance notice to the host that you would like to play, you are free to do so. Otherwise keep note of the event start times and join the host's Xbox Live party to begin. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at "RuneX" on the forums or on Xbox Live.

    News & Highlights
    Xbox One Division Anniversary Raffle Winners - During the #AJSA4Year Anniversary week on the Xbox One, we held a special raffle in observance of the community's birthday. Members on the Xbox One who participated in our 'Weekly Events' and completed various Contracts throughout the week in those events had their names placed in a raffle. For those on Xbox who also attended the Special Operation for Rocket League this past Saturday, your names were also placed in this raffle.
    Eight Anniversary events and many Contracts later, the winners have been chosen.
    I'm very pleased to announce the winners of the #AJSA4Year Anniversary Raffle on Xbox One:
    First Place - O0PP34 - While still fairly new to the AJSA, OP has adjusted quick and has fit right into the community. He is a frequent participant at the events and always down to lend a hand to those who need help. We're all happy OP has decided to call the AJSA his gaming home!
    Second Place - EJGarza - Fiery, passionate, and always down for a good fight, Garza is a long-time member of the Xbox community. His random outbursts of laughter and goofiness always brings a smile to the party, even though we think we should send him to an insane asylum sometimes.
    Third Place - Valkyric - Val has come a long way since joining the AJSA. He has grown to be one of our most improved and active members on Xbox. He is consistently the first one to answer calls for any Destiny Raid Nights and always down to tackle any challenge across any game. He is someone you want watching your back in a squad.
    Congratulations to you three! Your prizes are on the way.
    I just want to say that everyone who came out to participate and help organize all of our Anniversary events on Xbox were all part of something really special. I believe that this year we did our best Anniversary events yet on Xbox. Each and every single one of you made the AJSA 4th Year Anniversary activities a great success. Prizes or no prizes, we have the fact that we rocked the house and had an amazing time playing. We set up an amazing foundation for 2018!
    Top 10 Games of 2017 (According to Xbox) - This week we will begin the process of voting on the Top 10 Games of 2017 according to Xbox One members. Similar to last year, members will receive Club notices and messages in the next few days asking for votes and feedbacks on what games that came out this year on Xbox One they really liked. The voting will likely last two weeks. Stay tuned and keep an eye out for these messages.
    AJSA Gaming YouTube
    The AJSA 4 Year Anniversary was a stunning celebration. Members from all sides of the community came together to honor the founding of the AJSA and showed their support in a variety of ways. In the Xbox One Division, we held a unique series of events to commemorate the birthday of this community.
    Just like how we've done in 2015 and 2016, we created a montage video filled with funny/crazy/goofy moments from the Xbox side of the Anniversary festivities. We are happy to share with everyone our adventures and we hope you enjoy the showIf you are passionate and like to make videos and record during events, you are absolutely welcome to create videos such as this shown above and share them with all your fellow AJSA members in the Community Content section of the forums! You can contact Commander Jayson's Rage and coordinate with him to get footage from your events on the channel.
    AJSA Xbox One Weekly Event Schedule [December 5th to December 9th]
    How Can I Join An Xbox One Event? - For new members/first time event participants, I highly encourage you to add all the hosts as your friend on Xbox Live (Gamertags are listed for every host below). You can also join the AJSA Xbox Club and add hosts/members there. All event and game night parties are launched from the Club. Additionally, please review our Code of Conduct.
    Communication during events are done primarily in the Xbox Live Party system. In case of emergency, we will use the AJSA Discord Channel. We accept and make adjustments for people who are shy in large groups and/or for people who have no mics.
    If by chance you do not have the host as a friend, please message the host for an invite to the game/party during the event and then exchange friend requests upon entry to the party. Most, if not all, event parties will be visible to all Xbox Club members. Look under "Looking for Group" at the start/during an event to view the event party and join up.
    If you would like to give advance notice to the host that you would like to play, you are free to do so. Otherwise keep note of the event start times and join the host's Xbox Live party to begin. If you have any questions, please contact me directly at "RuneX" on the forums or on Xbox Live.
