Elf Clan Social Network

Several members got to discussing how much fun we all had at the Anniversary Build Exhibition and Party. We threw around some ideas and decided it would be lovely to have some kind of build theme event in the Tar Pits Sandbox - just like we used to have in SL at the ElvenMyst sandbox. There were several reasons for this:

1. We all got to meet and greet new people while placing builds or creating the stage areas.

2. If we had speed builds many of us wouldn't have enough time to tinker with our creations until we got them just right.

3. It would just be fun to sometimes have a reason to build in company and to a common goal.

To this end we started throwing around some ideas as to what might be some of the themes  or projects we might undertake and somehow we got around to talking about cardboard box rooms - something to do with items G8bri3l and I had seen when doing a hunt in SL. From there the idea grew - why don't we attempt a communal build with each person creating a cardboard box room to add to a - in the words of Bellini - boxominium :) So during the next couple of days I will devise a notecard with some basic guidelines as to size of the box and prim limits (if we need them!) and send it to all members with begin and end dates. In the meantime we will figure out what time to hold the party at the end of the month in order to celebrate our work as a Group.

If any members have ideas to add please add either as comments here or send me an IM or a notecard in InWorldz or SL and I will add them to this blog page for all to see.

I think that's a great idea Cinnamon.  We could cordon off 1/4 of the sandbox (1/4 region) and set up permanent building platforms for just such events.  That would allow us fifteen 30m plots with 4m walkways... and a party platform for performances and dance. : )

If we needed more than 15 plots, we could build on 2 levels and double that number.

Great idea Cinn. I enjoyed the closing party of the building event. So nice to meet and make new friends :)

Well, another successful build event comes to a close. Thanks to all of our members who participated in the theme Boxominium and delighted us with their fun and amazing work! I have added pictures of the party and awards winners, and some of the other build, here. Stay tuned for July's theme opening!

The Boxominium was a fun event.  Every entry was creative and fascinating.  I hope to see even more entries with the July theme.  Really, the builders did very well.

A Group notice was sent regarding this month's theme: Summer. More information at the Tar Pits Sandbox, ElvenMoon, InWorldz. Builds should reflect those fun things we love to do during the summer months. This event will end on Friday 27th July at 3pm in the sandbox. Prizes again awarded for those builds voted top three by party attendants.

A big thank you to everyone who participated in the Summer Fun build event which went longer than expected but still demonstrated some great creativity by Elf Clan members! I have posted pictures from the closing event and all entries here. September's theme is Pirates and we will be working towards a really wonderful closing party this month so please do your best to build something related to the theme :) Information will be available at the sandbox in the next couple of days.

September's Theme Build is over - Pirates theme was a lot of fun and we saw some great work by those who took part. You can see pictures of the builds and event here. During the next two months the theme will be Autumn/Fall......

Balmy days, harvest fare
Autumn breezes fill the air
with colourful leaves,
Trying to hold back the chill of winter.
Share your fall themed builds!
