    DATE CHANGE!!!!

    Date Set for December 20th
    -7:30pm ET Gathering
    -8:00pm ET Tree Lighting and pictures
    -8:20pm ET Gift Exchange
    -8:45pm ET Dinner is served

    After worrying that the Tree Lighting event could negatively affect the Blood Regatta event, I pulled a few strings at work and got the 20th off. So we will be moving the date to December 20th and will try to end things on time so the players from other communities can still make it to their events.

    Thanks to Gareth for changing the event so it doesn't interfere with another town's event.

    I doubt I'll be able to make the Lighting (RL cookie baking up a storm) but I'll try my best to put in an appearance!

    I ran this idea by Redstar a few days ago about allowing Townships to put up an orniment. I figured we would do a white and gold tree this year. So Townships can turn in a Gold Statue engraved to the Mailbox at the Communtiy teleport hub.

    No one is required to do this, you can do it if you would like.

    Actually yours is being held on the same night as the event we are hosting. As the time postings will reflect, however we are not unreasonable people and have canceled the dinner part of our event. So people may attend yours as well.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,
    Gareth

    Thank you everyone for coming! Thank you Wildstar, Mirt and Sheila for all the side help. Thank you Pitmuck Goblins Ozog, Yosh and more!!! Thanks everyone for making this event truly special.

    Al I noticed some AWESOME gifts in there like a "Ruined Painting, Statue of the Stars, Tokens, Deeds" and so much more. I was DROOOLING and its great to know that the lovely Goblins from Pitmuck can be trusted with such expensive items, thank you guys again.

    Glad I could put in an appearance between batches of cookies. I didn't get a present though I did claim an ethy boura for myself hehe.

    Merry Christmas all!
     
  18. Made it just in time to see the tree lighted and it was well done. I'd remind people to step on the plot to see just how many pressies were stacked up around the tree and the free trip, minus the LSD, of all the blinky lights on it :)

    Looked like a lot of fun. Sorry I missed it... I was stuck on a deserted isle that entire evening. I hate it when my ship runs into shoals and my entire crew has already consumed all the rum in the hold.
