Gators give Thanks

Thanksgiving passed us by on Thursday, and although many of the MC are not American and do not celebrate the holiday, we decided to hold a little celebration Gator Style. It had to be something silly, that everyone would be able to laugh at and would enjoy spending time as a family in, hence why I made it Turkey Day!
We started off the event with a simple task to find our Turkey Names, which just for laughs I'll share with you now...
HellBone - Gobbler Cornucopia
Solde - Giblet Stuffington
Rudhmellowen & Misty - Butterball McTurkey
Gary - Gobbler Featherbottom
Kris - Drumstick Gravy-Train
Lilian - Drumstick Cornucopia
Blake - Yamy Wishbone-Jones
Trace - Giblet Gobblestein
If you weren't there but would still like to find your Turkey Name, all you need to do is go to the following website - http://mix108.com/turkey-names - and so you know we used our Avatars first names as the initial!
Then we had a Gobble-Off... Everyone had to try to impress by doing the best impression of a turkey... There was tough competition for the victor, but in the end Lilian was crowned Turkey Gobble Champion!
HellBone even managed to record it... So...
That was followed by everyone sharing what they were thankful for... Then a Turkey Truth or Fowl Quiz! I learnt a lot in compling the quiz, things like you can tell the sex of a turkey by looking at the shape of it's poop, and Kris proved that he had the most knowledge when it comes to the stuffed bird!
So he won a fabulous t-shirt!
Lastly we had a Turkey Ride Out. Everyone was to ride on one of Hell's specially prepared Turkeys.
This counted as an official ride out, but apparently these turkeys are hard to corrall and  they went everywhere!!!
Most of all though it showed us that we're lucky to be part of such a crazy bunch and that is something worth being thankful over!!

Time for some Funnies!

It's been a long while since I actually posted any of the funnies that I have been collecting and now it feels like it's about the right time to do that... Basically because I need to clean up some of my folders on my desktop more than anything lol...
As per usual, there have been a lot of crazy goings on with the family...
Blake has a new job within the MC selling Weenies whenever we have a concert - if he's online of course!
As per usual poop was shared! Most of it involving HellBone in some way or another!
Though luckily Gary escaped that whilst he was trapped in the newly set out stocks for Naughty Gators! Don't ask me how he managed that by the way - I think HellBone was busy poopin on someone else!?!
Solde, on the other hand got a completely different seat. She mentioned to HellBone about a throne, and he decided the VP should have one too LOL...
Was a better throne than what could have been Hell's choice though...
But this time around, this post full of funnies, there is one Gator that will stand out for doing some crazy stuff... TRACE wins the crazy stuff of the last few weeks award!
After taking Rudh for not just one but two crazy rides, and breaking HellBone's new bike, Trace was also given the ride of his life by the new Gator Chippendales - HellBone and Gary...
Before he, along with HellBone and Lil, found something else that was new and even more disgusting to play with...
Yes that is a sanitary towel avatar! Yes there is also a tampon - our President!
If all that wasn't crazy enough for you, even our Probie was caught Planking!!!
Welcome to life at the Gators!

Another New Probie!!!

It's like waiting for a bus, you wait for a long time and then two come along at once! That's just what happened but for us it was Probies - not busses!
Yesterday - Saturday November 26th - we gave another Hangaround a damn good talking to and ended up with him slipping into one of those oh-so-attractive Probie vests that we have!
Jeffrey Kingsley - aka Jeff or Jeff-faa-faa - has slipped effortlessly from the role of Hangaround to Prospect as of yesterday, and we hope that for Christmas Santa can give him his full patch!! Sponsored by Kris, Jeff came to us through Misty and he wanted to be a part of the Gator family just like his big sister.
He seems kinda shy at the moment, but you know how the Gators can break someone out of their shell... Let's see how our new baby Gator grows!
Welcome to the family Jeff!

A-MAZE-ING Movies...

Before the Maze HellBone, decided to create a movie as a teaser...
Then as the maze closed, a second was released...

A New Prospect...

We have a new Prospect at the Gators MC after so long... She's been a friend of the family for such a long time that she's always been a part of the Gator family but circumstances have changed and she is now free to be one of us!
We've known Misty - by we I mean HellBone and I - for a good few years now and she's one of those sweet caring souls that has a bit of a feisty side when needed... She seems like a perfect fit for the Gators. After resigning her position within the Mad Dawgs MC, Misty ventured off into some RL for a while and now that she's back, and the Mad Dawgs are on hiatus she's decided to step into the Gators MC and start working for her patch!!!

The Gator Maze Closes

The Gator Maze for 2016 has now officially closed... The month has flown by, and although it's kept us busy, what a month it has been!!
We've seen so many guests pass through the doors of the maze in Pet Sematary - many of those visitors that have enjoyed our Halloween events in the past - and the comments have been coming to us fast!
Let's take a little look back through the month and see what has been going on shall we?
You've already heard about the opening night, but let's take a closer look at the location...
The Start location itself was the Sematary, which lead underground into the maze like catacombs... Once the guests made it past the maze they would find themselves in the Gators MC Horror Rooms! Thirteen rooms based on some of our favourite horror movies;
IT, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Exorcist, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Silence of the Lambs, Wrong Turn, Children of the Corn, Chucky, The Ring, Carrie, The Shining, Saw and Friday the 13th all had starring roles in the maze this year. Rooms created by members of the MC, and all of the guests saying that they had a favourite room, none being more popular than the other.
As well as the scares we threw some awesome parties too...
Live performances by ML, Thera D and Moon Spark were popular with visitors, and the Halloween Party with guest performers Rob Zombie - the great Tribute Show of Rob Zombie!
The Gators seemed to really enjoy themselves in the maze this year... Crazy Costumes and fun times were had by all - Lil even managed to get a little scary!!
We had so many guests that enjoyed the maze this year, to close off the post I wanted to share a few of the best pictures from the year...

The Gator Maze Opens

We did it, it's FINALLY here... The Gator Halloween Maze 2016 has officially opened and we're all very excited that we've finally been able to open the doors to the public...
As is becoming a tradition, we celebrated the opening of the Gator Maze with a concert by the awesome Moon Spark.
She arrived and took to the trailer stage in the Pet Semetary, stopping for a quick bite to eat before she began to sing!
The place filled up pretty quick, and we had a large number of people that burst through the maze doors as it opened!
The Gators took their places and there were many great comments heard as people moved through the maze - the flow of people in was slow but steady and since we opened there have been people coming to the Gator sim all day!
Everyone did a great job of dressing up again this year too!!!
Personally though, I think the creepiest costume of the night was the one belonging to Mr. G...
Was he the Cat or the Hand, for those of you that don't know, he's the one making the rude hand gestures hehe...

Lots of Music at the MC

I'm getting just a little bit behind on blogging the live performances that we have had on the sim lately - not to mention the funnies, which I still need to sort out - but for now... The Musical stuff!!
Recently we had a concert from not just one but two very talented singers on the Gator Sim...
Lexus Melody - a singer that is actually managed by our very lovely G-Man - with a sweet voice took over the stream... Her performance was even listed in the SL News Blog - Give The Scoop, click here to read the article - and she was followed by a somewhat later than originally planned performance by Talleysin.
This concert was planned for a few weeks prior to the event but after a few technicalities things had to be rescheduled... He was worth the wait...
The week after these night of music, we had another awesome Boomer and High Octane Tributes Concert... Aerosmith came to the Gators...
This was also covered by the Give the Scoop News Website, check the link here...
So much live music, so much fun!!! Gotta love parties at the MC!

Judas Priest at the Gators

HellBone's Favourites took over the Swamp Airwaves on Saturday - the one that just passed not the one that is coming...
Judas Priest took to the stage, thanks to another of those amazing shows put together by Boomer Longspring and his team at High Octane Tributes!
As always it was a great show and HellBone seemed to love it more than normal! Boomer even made sure that his favourite, "Painkiller" was added to the set list! Thanks for that Boomer!

Evely Lane sings at the Gators

On Saturday we had a stand in performance from a very old friend of HellBone's and a new friend to the Gators MC... Evely Lane took to the stage in a special live performance...
Her dulcet tones drifted over the swamp and filled the airwaves, due to the unfortunate cancellation of our planned live singer for the evening, and she rocked the swamp for two whole hours.
As you can see though she wasn't always alone up there on the stage. She had the help of three - not-so-talented - backing dancers LOL...

Trace got his Patch

Our latest Prospect is a Prospect no more... Yesterday - Saturday August 13th, Trace was finally able to pull on his big boy vest...
It really seems to suit him!
One of the boys from the start, Trace really made himself at home around the family, joining in on all the jokes, enjoying the tasks that we set for him and fully initiating himself into the Dark Side.
Welcome to the family Trace!!! YAY you made it!

A new Probie

It's been a long while since the Gators had some new blood, but I can say - although unless you've been living under a rock you may well already know - that the Gators MC has a new prospect...
Trace69 Resident - or Trace - came to us when he was looking for somewhere new to ride his bike... Somehow he came to us, and he's been coming back ever since... Hanging around for a while and then finally slipping into a Prospecting vest.
He is by no means new to the MC scene in Second Life, but after taking a bit of a break Trace is back and has finally found a place he seems to fit in very well... He seems to enjoy sharing in the jokes with his Sponsor Mongo and HellBone, and he seems to have no problems hazing himself along with the rest of us LOL...
You seem like a good fit Trace, keep up the great work with your tasks and before you know it you will be in a vest that doesn't trigger your OCD hehe...

50 Shades of Solde

I mentioned in the last post that we have been rather busy at the Gators, and it was this past weekend that has been the busiest time of all...
Our awesome VP Solde celebrated a big birthday on Saturday - I'm not gonna say how old she was, but she's proud of it so if you want to know, ASK HER!
For her special Birthday, we organised not one, not two but 5 parties! Not that they were all HUGE parties but they were all equally fun and Solde loved them!
First there was a 1960's style, Woodstockish event we called Sodastock! With a brilliant performance by Boomer and the team of High Octane Tributes, as Nikki Sixx and Motley Crue! All of our guests wore white hair in honour of the Birthday Girl - which she didn't even notice until Kris pointed it out LOL...
Then for event two, Sussie took them to a neon lit, crazy golf game for a little crazy golf 80's style.
That was on Thursday... Moving on to Friday, we had THREE events to squeeze in to a little space of time!!
First there was a 1970's style Disco Bowling event... Everyone looked so CUTE! Sussie was able to bowl in roller skates, the boys had HUGE afros and well, Solde wore a LOT of pink!
I want to say that Birthday event 4 was a little easier but that would be wrong LOL... It was easier to plan yes, but it really did a number on the bunch of us that ran 2 - or 1 and a half in some cases LOL - laps around the Gator track on Granny rollers!
But it was the last event on Friday that had taken the most work to organise, this was the big one, the special one, the one that we'd all been waiting for!
Solde took a little trip to Oz!!
We knew this was her favourite movie, but to orchestrate a trip to Oz was tough... HellBone - with a little direction from Mongo - spent a couple of days creating an Oz ballroom! I had been searching for men's costumes before I found these awesome ladies costumes and arranged with Sussie and Lilian that we'd need to be the characters, and Mongo even made all of our visitors wear the little green hats!!! Even NEO - VP of H&H - who never takes his cowboy hat off wore a green hat!!
From all of the Gators, we hope that you had an awesome Birthday Solde...
Thank you for everything that you do for us!!! You deserved all of this and more! Though I will say, that from now on... You can plan the parties LOL...

July's Rock at the Swamp

We have been SO BUSY the past few days and I have so much to share that I need to get some of this stuff shared with you, otherwise I will drown in the amount of pictures I have LOL...
First up, let's talk about the music that has come to the Gators recently shall we?
On July 16th we had a concert with the awesome Halestorm...
Having a High Octane Tribute Concert every month is something that we all seem to enjoy and this month was our first female lead performance... It was pretty good!
In August, we have Judas Priest coming to the sim... HellBone cannot wait for that one!
Then on Saturday 23rd, we had a live performance by DirtyDee Sweetwater...
Now, I will be a little critical here and say that he'd have been better if he spent less time discussing his backup dancers side-boob and more time singing, but we did have a lot of new people come in to the sim, and we did get a few Supporter Tags handed out... So all in all it wasn't a bad event...

How about a few more funnies?!

I have a folder full of funnies waiting to be shared, and some of them are from as far back as EASTER!
Yes you heard that right... I was looking through the folder of funnies and found this...
Solde dressed as a cute Easter bunny... Funny to see her not only dressed as a bunny but also wearing pink!
There have been other crazy goings on too...
Lil for example has been giving the Doody Men a run for their money, taking her role of Crap Woman seriously...
First she is owning the art of "Doin' a Lil!" and second she seems to have no problems with curling up hugging crap!
Though as per usual, it has been the comedy duo of Hellongie - HellBone and Mongo that is - to keep us a little entertained. Not sure how much they do the silly things for us, but we cannot help but laugh at their crazy antics!
I cannot say anything other than laugh looking at these pictures, they entertain each other for hours on end doing things like this.
Sometimes the rest of us get swept along for the ride,
literally!! Solde and I were dragged along, she carried off by an Elephant and Mongo getting me trapped under a lorry, but it was Sussie that managed to sweep Hell off his feet...
It's no wonder that she became the boys "stinky bush"!
It wasn't just the girls getting caught up in the Hellongo randomness too... Even Kris was shown a good time, when after hearing about a little accident he had at work, Hell and Mongo decided to show him they care with a little gift...
of more stools!
One last thing, and a great way to wrap up this funnies post... A little prank those cheeky brothers pulled on our favourite non-Gator MC - H&H - they went on a little visit and left a calling card there for a  full week before it was discovered hehe...
