Any1’s Choices: Winterfest, Hockey, Healing Through Art, Flowers of Life, Shakespeare and More
Any1 Gynoid’s Weekly Roundup of Upcoming Events…
The Virtual Hockey League’s playoff pits underdog team Lag Riders against the victorious WildKatz team, ahead 3 games to 0 in last night’s intense competition. Epic hockey fights erupted, leading an injured player to burst RL stitches in Wednesday’s fierce competition. Dramatic moments at the top of the 3rd quarter forced Lag Rider’s Captain Antonia Foggarty to shout “TIME OUT” and scream, “I will NOT sacrifice my players health!”… even though VHL’s Stanley Cup hangs in the balance! Wild hockey action continues in VHL Playoff Game IV on Sunday 11am on 12/19. In Virtual Hockey League. [SLurl teleport at this link]

Event Submission Guidelines:
1. Events for the coming week must be received by Tuesday Noon SLT.
2. Include all the relevant info; day, time, and especially the SLURL to the event location.
3. Please send related graphics such as screen shots or photo of the event site, if available.
4. Events with artistic, cultural, scientific, political, creative, and/or educational value preferred.
5. Events sponsored or promoted by real world corporations are welcome, as long they serve and entertain the Second Life community, and/or foster Resident-made content (live music, builds, scripting, fashion, games, etc.) Events that merely promote the company or organization’s Second Life presence are not generally appropriate; you may instead consider advertising your event or service on New World Notes.
6. Mature-rated events are permissible, but listing descriptions should be PG-13. Political and religious events are encouraged, though those of an extreme or non-inclusive variety are rarely included.
7. Bonus consideration given to game-related or machinima events, and for events with “I’ve never seen that in SL before!” value.
If you’d like an event to be considered, send the description and event information via email to Any1 Gynoid at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or contact her in-world via IM.
