SECOND LIFE EXPLORER
STEELTOPIA ANCHORAGE
Jandai Writer
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Steeltopia%20Anchorage/198/132/61

Getting away from places of ruin, I decided to visit a nice, placid, train station.  That seemed like a good idea.

Arriving at Anchorage IronHound TrainStation, I was immediately filled with the sights and sounds of a busy platform.  There was only one problem…the platform wasn’t actually busy…

The Platform

Not one to let that discourage me, I began my explorations.  I climbed the stairs and crossed over the top of the train tracks and down the other side.  What a great looking train sitting at the platform.

I went outside and poked around for a bit…

PURGAL ADGE MARKETS – MARKET STALLS FOR RENT
SkydiverAnarta Fall & SkydiverColorado Calloway

From the notecard:

Shorah All.

Do you make things and don’t know where to sell them? Have you ever wanted somewhere to market your goods on the Mainland? Would you like a market stall and pay no rent? I have purchased some land on the mainland and turned it into a market place.  All you have to do is to donate your 512 land allowance, choose a stall and away you go. Each stall carries a 50 prim allowance. If you want a stall, but do not have the land allowance available, then stalls are being rented for 160L per week for 50 prims

Please contact SkydiverAnarta Fall or SkydiverColorado Calloway for further information

CLAIREHAVEN ESTATES
Sandi Glas
From the notecard:

Clairehaven Estates was established in 2008 to create an affordable alternative to land ownership.  From the beginning, Veronicaa Ninetails and Sandi Glas have worked hard to provide a stress free place to live and play and relax, all within a libertine community of “family” who live together in peaceful coexistence.  We currently have five regions, and though they are not themed, each has a character all its own.  Land is available in a variety of sizes, and priced modestly to better help everyone develop the home of their dreams.  Contact us, or visit one of our properties today.  The landmarks below will take you to the tier boards for each region, and you can visit a land simply by clicking on the tier box and receiving the LM to that particular parcel or island.

Haven I & Haven IV tier boards: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Haven%20IV/70/180/401
Haven II tier board: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Haven%20II/1/221/601

Application due: June 15 to Orria Loire – (300 stores being accepted) drop in box labeled applications at 􀀋
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Pawpaw/224/10/115
From the notecard:

Stores will be inspected for general audience appropriateness (no nudity or violence) and organization. 300 stores maximum will be selected.

Wait for acceptance package (with instructions) – sent approximately July 11, 2010, which gives you about 14 days to make the gift(s). Follow the instructions. Accepted stores will be posted on blog site:
http://orrlaloire.wordpress.com/about/summer-sweets-grid-wide-hunt-in-sl/ . Stores will be randomized so any store can be first or last..

Join the group Summer Sweets Grid-wide Hunt group. Store owners will be promoted to Vendor role and can send notices (however, please don’t abuse this privilege.)

Make the gift(s) — you must have full permissions on everything you put into the hunt item or script will not give them out. Put them into the hunt item, along with anything else you want to include. Test the hunt item by touching it. It should give a folder labeled “SWEETS: your store name” with your gifts in the folder (note: it should not give out the default hunt script and next loc card), and instant message a SLURL to next location.

Hide the item according to the rules. Do not make it too difficult for people. If they have to spend more than 30 minutes in your store, it is too difficult. Put the hunt poster (required), and hint board and arrows (only if your hunt item is more than 20 meters from entrance/landing point) by entrance.

Test run will be approximately July 25,2010 to July 31, 2010. If all goes smoothly, the hunt begins August 1, 2010.

GIANT SNAIL RACE REPLAY
DMom2K Darwin

I came, I saw, I almost conquered, LOL. I placed second in the race and it was one of the hardest courses I have had to ever run. That wiley wabbit, RacerX put falling cows and meteors in our way, a shroom forest (no Teledahn here), catapults, a giant cannon and the maze from hell. We went over hill and under dale and raised a lot of money for Relay for Life. We have one more Giant Snail Relay race in June – think about racing to help raise money for this great cause or come and root for us.
