Report on Island-Hopping Stamp Tour | Events & Announcements | New Locations


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! 

Teresa was also keen to thank Bellisseria's Corps Diplomatique for their help;
Thank you to all the wonderful ambassadors who helped promote the event with posters, instant messages and notices to various groups.
This is intended to be the first of more such tours. These will initially focus on Bellisseria's beautiful – Mole-designed and built – Community Areas. They are all delightful in ways that reflect the different styles of the Linden Homes types they serve. Not only are they benefits of life on the Linden Continent, they are there for all residents of Second Life® – many of whom may not be aware of them – to enjoy.
Keep your eye on The Gazette, as always, for future announcements.

I try to decorate along to the seasons, holidays and festivities. It keeps me busy onto new ideas and decoration hunting fun.

Teresa Firelight has published her third article on the subject of the new fantasy treehouses over at our sister publication The Parade of Homes Review.
Tree house garden
This one is about decorating the exterior and the garden. Teresa introduces it by saying;
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 article goes into the 'how to' in even more detail than usual and may be one of Teresa's best to date. We recommend you take a look.

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. All are welcome to join in the celebration on 19th November. You can expect music, dancing, dragons and flamethrowers (!) as well as a keen in memory of Anne, who passed away in 2011.

The Boo Gallery is an art gallery in Satori, which also features a café, games, movies and fishing. 

The Confederation of Democratic Simulators (CDS – SL's oldest democracy) is holding a Noir and Frost Party on Saturday, Nov 18th at 1 pm SLT. The organisers told The Gazette;

Goth Rock and Indie The ₦ØłⱤ & ₣ⱤØ₴₮ party is here! Join us in Neufreistadt region for a night of dark melodies and chilling vibes by ★ DJ Tori! Don your darkest outfit and come dance in the shadows.

Home Sweet Home for Horse Lovers is a small piece of land with a big heart. Nature enthusiasts are welcome with open arms. The location offers paddocks, racing tracks, jumping arenas and a friendly family atmosphere for visitors and their horses.

Finally the wonderful Mount Campion Forest National Park is staging another of its tours. It will trace the migration of the Bearpaw Tribe around the forest as they fled hostile invaders and found a safe home. It also tells the story of the brave medicine man who saved his tribe.

The ranger guided tour starts at 11:30 AM SLT on November 19th, and a self-guided version of the tour will be available through November 26th.

Finally, in a bumper week for event stamps, there's another DJ party on Planet Tambalya. This time the music is provided by Her Excellency DJ Dulci, Hon Ambassador to Gaeta, who is extending her diplomatic reach to other planets!
