Here I am, with a stale blog. Let's see if I can't do something about that. I think I've missed the window for discussing Christmas, which was enormous fun, but there is plenty of fun just around the corner.
The Gangplank is sponsoring a Go-Devil Canal Race this Saturday, January 26th. The frozen canals make a fabulous track for Go-Deviling, and a race is something I've been thinking about since last winter when Kimika Ying introduced her fabulous vehicles. We've made the arrangements with Tenk, have a course picked out, and now just need to mark the route on Saturday morning.
Saturday is going to be a busy day. At 11 am SLT, the Second Life Giant Snail Race will take place in New Babbage. The course for that race shouldn't interfere with our canal race, and it is apparently a great honor for the city to be hosting the snail race. Great news for New Babbage! At 1 pm SLT, we will be kicking off our Go-Devil race, with a party at the Gangplank afterward until 3 pm. From 6 pm until 9 pm SLT, the annual Founder's Day Black and White Soot Ball will be happening at the Piermont, an event I am loathe to miss. From 7 pm until whenever is a grand finale bash in End of Armada Breakaway Party, celebrating the sim before it goes away on Sunday (I'll discuss in a separate post).
All in all it promises to be a busy one, and I'm pondering whether I can somehow manage to make it to all of them...
