REPORT ON ISLAND-HOPPING STAMP TOUR
Feedback on last Saturday's stamp-collecting tour was universally positive. Take this report, for example, by our old friend BJoyful on the Community Forums. We are all very grateful to our colleague Teresa Firelight who put in many hours of work to make sure it went well. Teresa told The Gazette;
It was hard to count the number of participants because they were spread out among different locations. We had two helicopters that each held ten guests. Both were full and we had to send one back to pick up another six people.
People enjoyed riding in the helicopters flown skilfully by Brian Aviator and Kevin Jackman. Other participants teleported directly to Merrymount or Pegleg Lighthouse.
Teresa was keen to thank our founder, Boo Rojyo, for his assistance on the day.
Boo was a HUGE help. He directed people from BBB HQ down to the water rez area at the start and helped guide people during the event. When the party exceeded our region's limits and we had to move to Bellihub, Boo stayed behind for half an hour to direct people to the new location.
There were thirty-four guests at the party including DJ Steph, Boo and me. Mini Mole also came and was pleased by the turnout. Everyone enjoyed themselves immensely!
As a result of the success of this first tour, the Lindens have kindly agreed to upgrade the Swordfish region where our HQ is based to accommodate 110 avatars. That will be useful when planning our party for the upcoming holidays!

I try to decorate along to the seasons, holidays and festivities. It keeps me busy onto new ideas and decoration hunting fun.
I flew around several regions on the Fantasy continent and saw a lot of tree houses. Most of them had empty yards. I guess people were still working on the inside of their homes and had not yet gotten around to decorating their yards. That is why I thought it might be a good idea to share a few ideas on decorating the outside of our tree house properties.
The first of several event stamps this week is for the opening of Moods at the Black Tulip Gallery in CDS that was featured in Events & Announcements last week.
The Great Gianfar Gather ("gather" means party, fair or festival) is an annual event to celebrate the life and work of Anne McAffrey, the author on whose works the RPG at Gianfar Peaks is based.
