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.
