Sl10B is finally here! Photograph by Rico Saenz

Sl10B is finally here! Photograph by Rico Saenz

The Sl10B Community Celebrations open today at 12 noon SLT – with music on all four stages!

And at 1pm, there will be a special Opening Ceremony – and we want you there to be a part of it.

So that as many people as possible can share in the Opening, there will be a very simple ceremony taking place in most of the twenty sims.

Across the sims, there will be groups of flags. At 1pm SLT, all the flags will be raised to symbolise the start of SL10B CC. The flags will fly throughout the week, not to be lowered again until the end of the event.

The Flags waiting to be raised by the Auditorium

Raising and lowering a flag is a very simple ceremony, but an important one. It marks the beginning and end of the Olympics and other special events; in some countries, the raising and lowering of a flag might mark the beginning and end of a school day. In Second Life, doing this on as many sims as possible, all at the same time, means that as many people can attend as possible — and it is symbolic of the way so many people in so many countries can come together in Second Life and share the experience. So we will all share the experience of seeing the flags lift.

You can choose your own vantage point, as you can see a group of flags from almost everywhere. You’ll find them positioned near the edge of sims – and we’ll be posting a full list of locations soon both to the groups and on the blog.

We hope you will be able to join in this very special Opening.

Join us in the treet.tv studios in Garden of Dreams at 3pm, Friday 14th, with our host Cinders Vale and hunt reporter Rosamoo Mendelsohn of Hunt SL for another great show!

SL10BCC Teaser (general)

There will be Birthday celebrations all over the grid and the SL10BCC folks want to make it easy for their visitors to get to all of the other parties, performances, feasts & festivals from June 16 – 23 as well.

We’ve built a Connections Board which will have posters for events happening throughout the week. They will include notecards with descriptions and landmarks – but we need the information about your (or your friends’) event.

Please send Honour McMillan a folder inworld with the following:

  • A notecard with a description of the event; what it is, the date(s) and time(s), the maturity level and a landmark.

  • A photo or poster for the event. Please note that the image must satisfy the General Maturity guidelines, even if your event is Moderate or Adult.

  • The photo or poster must be a texture sized no more than 512 in any direction.

  • The notecard and the texture must be full perm.

Spread the word and make sure Honour is buried in event information!

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 10th June, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, as we pay our second visit to the fantastic Home and Garden Expo.

The Expo itself has now closed, having raised over US$30,000. But we were there to visit some of the amazing creations and to talk to the designers behind them.

In this second visit we talk to the co-organiser of the Expo, Heavenly Villa, and to Cortiez Brandiss, who organised the associated (and highly successful) Breedables Fair. And Saffia talks to Judith Chestnut and Jaimy Hancroft of the Dwarfins, one of the popular “breedables” at the Fair, while Elrik met Mewroo Resident and Levio Serenity of the very popular Meeroos. Then we talk to Troy Vogel who created a beautiful and very unusual House for the Expo, before finishing with the very nmoving Lantern Ceremony that occurred each day of the Expo – a chance for reflection and commemoration of those who have left us and celebration of those who remain.

The Long Walk

The Long Walk

Is there a Hunt at this year’s SL10B Community Celebrations?

Well, yes … and then more yes.

Because if your idea of a good hunt is the chance to explore new places and find amazing things … then all you need to do is come to the Community Celebrations, and look around.

You’ll find the most amazing things – all jam-packed next to each other. And because SL10B is a birthday – your birthday – you’ll find presents all over the place.

But as well as the serendipity of exploring the twenty amazing sims that you’ll find, there’s also going to be something special – The Long Walk.

It’s been devised by David Abbott (who you may remember as the intrepid explorer in the Egyptian desert who guided you through the Hunt in the Desert at SL9B). And he’s been ably assisted behind the scenes by Rosamoo Mendelsohn of Hunt SL and by Whiskey Monday who created the striking poster you see here.

So what is the Long Walk?
Every day for the Birthday Week, David will be posting an account of that day’s Walk on the blog, describing some of the amazing things he sees. You can follow in his footsteps and – along the way – you will discover one or two gorgeous gifts – not in every location he mentions, but in very special places where X will mark the spot!

The walk will continue throughout the week from June 16 – 23rd. In the following week, you will still be able to follow the Long Walk and find the special gifts while the sims remain open.

Keep reading the blog to find out more about The Long Walk – coming soon!
