Baby Gators all grown up!

Yesterday we had a meeting, and it was the first of two special days this weekend! Today is a Gator Wedding, but yesterday was patching day for our baby gators...
First came Mas...
Mas was brought to us by Anisa -  and has shown that she has what it takes to be in the family. A little shy at times, Mas was a novice rider when she first started coming to the sim, but after a few lessons and LOTS of practice riding round and around the Gator track, she's going to be giving Gary some competition for the fastest lap times!
Then came Celeste!
She came to the MC through Gary, and unlike Mas she had had previous MC experience. Yet Celeste has always said that the Gators are a family, and now she´s happy to be able to say she´s a part of the family! Getting through her tasks at lightning speed, and even wanting more she definitely proved she has the Gator spirit!
Welcome to the family both of you and well done for earning your Big Gator Patches!!!

Movie Nights

Anisa is doing great as the new MC Event Co, trying to plan lots of fun things that we can do together as a family.
One of newest ideas was a Gators Movie Night, which will be held at least once a month, depending on the interest of the Gators and our Non-MC Friends.
We had a trial run to see how it worked last weekend...
A few of use sat around all comfy like to watch Suicide Squad.
Anisa had sent us a notecard with three options which we were allowed to vote for our option and the movie with the most votes would be played. Now a lot of members had seen the movie, but really enjoyed it, so it was chosen and we spent a few hours in the company of Headshot and Harley Quinn.
If you have any ideas for possible movie nights, please contact Anisa, and we will see what we do!?! Can't wait till the next movie night now!

New Family Photos

The MC decided that they'd like a new family photo... The people in the old one had changed and some had left, we even had some new faces joining the ranks. So it was about time... This was the result. 
I hope that everyone likes it, and I'm sorry to Blake especially that I wasn't able to get him into the photo. Next time Blakey I promise... 
We're a very solid group now and it's great to see everyone together in a picture like this... 

Ch-Ch-Changes

LOL sorry I'm coming up with weird post titles today, blame it on all the chocolate!!!
At Saturday 15th's meeting, we had some big things to discuss... Members left us, and there were changes in ranks...
Chopper has now decided to step down as a Road Captain for personal reasons. He's going to remain in the MC, but with a hectic RL schedule coming up and the recent promotion of Kris he felt it was the right time to make the change. Who knows in the future he may take a new rank for a test ride, but for now he's gonna take it easy and just be a full patched member!
Tila was the other member that had a big change this week. She's not been back with us long, but due to the change in ranks for both Gary and Kris, we had an Enforcer position open. Tila will now be trained as a Gators MC Enforcer and is really looking forward to trying out that position. She know's what it takes to be a Gator Officer, she has been a Mentor before, but everyone agrees that Tila will be great in this position... Tila the pressure is on... Time to prove us all right hehe...

Walking like Egyptians

This past weekend has been fairly busy with Gatorish things, starting out on Friday night with the Birthday party of Gary... 
Celeste played a big part in helping to choose the theme for this event... It turned out to be a success and Gary really enjoyed himself. 
They even walked like Egyptians!! Thanks to Mr. G who shared with us his special dance, and then HellBone playing a certain song by the Bangles - which has been stuck in my head since the party!

Chandra Deed at The Gators

Last Saturday was the first concert planned by our new Event Co, Anisa. 
We had a concert by the live performer Chandra Deed, a singer of an ecclectic collection of pop music. This was not someone that we'd ever had before at the Gators... 
Anisa's first event was a great success... Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves and we were happy with the way Anisa promoted, organised and ran the entire thing! 
Chandra brought in a decent sized crowd and there were lots of people that seemed happy and enjoyed the show! 
Coming next week is movie night at the Gators, watch this space to see what we're all going to watch!

Solde's Art Show

Very proud to share the information here for those of you that are interested to know about the Gallery Show of Solde's Landscape Art!
The show opens today, and to get there you need to go to the Kultivate Spring 17 Art Show.
I asked Solde how she felt about having her pictures in the show, she said "I am very proud to have my photography in this gallery showing with other talented photographers." She should feel proud, we're all very proud of her, and her pictures are very beautiful!!
Congrats Solde, you deserve it!

Changes and New Vests

This week at the meeting we had two big things in regards to vest changes to deal with...
First and foremost, one of our Full Patched Members made Solde very very happy... She no longer needs to do the work of both the VP and the Event Co-ordinator because *drum roll* WE HAVE A NEW EVENT CO!!!!
Anisa had been interested in this position since she was in her Baby Gator Probie vest, but after her patching she spoke with HellBone and Solde, and had a unanimous yes vote and will now be stepping into her officer role.
She comes with plenty of experience - managing her own events at her Krafties Auction Place as well as having plenty of experience as a great DJ. She's got contacts and lots of ideas so it seems that we could be on to some good things with Anisa - and Solde gets to have a bit of a rest now too!
Her first events are already being planned, we have a live performance on Saturday so let's just see how Anisa does and we wish you lots of luck Anisa!!!!
Then it's onto another New Vest, a new vest for an old face...
Tila took off her stinky Probie vest and slipped on something a little bit more comfortable this weekend. She's out of her prospect period and back to being a full patched member, and this time we hope that it's for good. After a very hard working two weeks - with a stay in hospital in between - Tila earnt her big girl vest once again and it's great to have you back with us Tila!!!!
Congrats Ladies, you both earnt your new vests...

Breaking News...

Yes you heard it here correctly, Tila has come back to the Gators MC!!!
OK so I'm a little late with posting anything about it, and she has been back as a prospect since the last meeting over a week ago but in my defence I haven't been very well!
She's being Sponsored by HellBone - meaning she has to do well or the President will never live it down LOL  - but she's come back with the same kinda gusto she had before. Kicking butt, taking names and proving just how much she's missed the feeling of being at home!
One of our newer Prospect tasks was something that Tila really sunk her teeth into... Getting all the Gators to dress up a little crazy was easy, but getting them to dodge Zombies AND someone with cooties, well... that took skills...
Welcome back Tila, we're glad you're back with us, now let's finish off your prospecting, get you outta that stinky vest and into a big girl vest again!

Changes Changes Changes

We're had lots of changes after this past meeting and it's all good news for a change!
There have been promotions, rank changes and even FULL PATCHES, plus we have an old face back as a new Probie - but more about that later LOL...
For now let's talk rank changes shall we?
THE GATORS HAVE A NEW SGT@ARMS!!! It's been a while, HellBone was watching and waiting and finally he made a decision that he is very happy with.. So presenting the new Gators MC Sgt@Arms!
Yes, that's right GARY! Gary Burton is the new Sgt@ Arms for the Gators MC. He has really earnt this position, and after months of watching him, HellBone finally made his choice!
The other change in rank is for our other Enforcer...
Kris has been having massive PC troubles for a while now, and has been given the chance to try his hand at something new by the Executive. Kris from now on will be a new Road Captain, helping Senior RC G-Man by running a weekly American Time Zone ride, while Chopper carries on with the impromptu rides... MORE RIDES FOR EVERYONE!!! YAY!!
Then NEW FULL PATCHES WERE HANDED OUT TOO!!!
Ishtar and Anisa have been given their big girl vests and are now full patched members after two weeks of very hard work. Well Done to Mentor Lil and Sponsors Misty and Solde for getting these girls through, and ladies well done for working so hard and earning your patches. We're very proud of you, Welcome to the family!
There is someone else that is now Prospecting again, a familiar face that you may well remember, but more to come on that soon, I promise!

Time for some more Crazy Randomness from the boys!

That's right, it's time for some more crazy randomness that happens at the MC ahead of a busy weekend at the Gators. I wanted to clear out some of my pictures before I have lots of other lovely things to show you... So no time like the present...
As per usual there is a lot of crazy goings on by with the Gator boys, and I'm not sure if that is just the girls don't get caught, or that the boys are are just more likely to be silly, but at least it's Entertaining!
As per usual there are also two guys that seem to stand out in the silly stakes just a little more...
First they were warming up the stage...
Luckily Boomer and the team took over to bring us an awesome Seether concert...
Although I have to say that wasn't the only dancing that HellBone has been getting up to since my last silliness post... He roped his fellow Doodieman into the dancing, and YES they are wearing dresses!
It's all too much fun for them sometimes though, those poor little doodiemen... Sometimes they just need a nice warm pussy to take a power nap in...
Before they are back causing trouble once more! It seems that HellBone has been getting around a bit this week... First with Chopper, then with Trace...
But there was no one more determined to win HellBone than Gary, who fought Chopper... (Thank you Misty for the Picture by the way)
and then landed not once but twice on some very hard, but well marked targets...
After all that, what more could you want to see in the Gator Boys... Brandon had one more little announcement to make...
Don't worry Brandon, it's just a sign that you perfectly fit with the other crazy male Gators... It will wear off soon!

Maximillian Kleene

On Sunday March 5th, the Gators held their monthly live concert at the event platform. Hosting a concert for an awesome singer that some people knew, others didn't and we'd definitely never had at the sim before...
Maximillian Kleene brought the house down!!!
We had a very busy concert area, and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves... We even made friends with a new MC - Solidarity MC - and will be attending their rally in April!
A couple of pictures just to show how full the tent was,
and I'm done...
Not sure when the next event will be, we need to find a new event co-ordinator, but maybe we will have something soon for some more fun!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GATORS!! The Birthday...

Wednesday February 15th 2017... The day that the Gators MC officially turned 4 years old...
We've been through many ups downs over the years, trials and tribulations that have made us stronger as a whole. There have been multiple Vice Presidents, and countless numbers of officers, but we now have a core unit of members that are close as family as well as just in friendship. 
To celebrate, we had a busy event day planned with not one but THREE live performances from singers that have performed here over the years and a game of Biker Ball for some huge cash linden prizes... 
Up first... BIKER BALL... 
Two teams... Initially Gary and a guest versus HellBone and Kris, although Gary had to stop because he needed to sit down and rest - the poor little thing - so G-Man stepped in and the game began... 
What started off as G-Man and his guest in the lead, soon lead to Kris and HellBone taking over and eventually winning... It was a great game to watch!
Congrats to HellBone and Kris!
We cleared away that arena and then it was time to get the stage ready for our three guest performers...
Gary and Kris took it upon themselves to warm up the crowd - luckily there wasn't much of a crowd to warm up so we allowed them to do it for a while lol...
Although, even Kris ran away when Gary added something a little extra to his performance...
Luckily it wasnt long before ML turned up and took over the stage...
Between ML and the later acts we had a little bit of a break, some of us went to bed and others came online, for concerts by first GregKat...
Then Sassy Nitely...
(Thank you Solde for taking pictures for me by the way!)
The Gators MC Birthday party was over... We're 4 now, one of the older MCs left in SL that has been active for the last 4 years, and maybe if we're really lucky there will be 4 more to come...
Now it's time for most of us to get some sleep until HellBone starts talking about Halloween!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GATORS! The Weekend...

Going to split this Birthday post into two because there is a LOT of stuff to share LOL...
Yesterday - February 15th - was our 4th Anniversary as an MC in SL. There will be more said about yesterday in the next post but for now, let me share with you some of the crazy goings-on over the weekend that passed a few days ago.

Day 1 - Friday February 10th, 2017
This was the start of the Gators MC Wacky Races Build- Off Competition... We had 4 competitors that started - although 3 more did make a late start too - and each competitor chose a box. The boxes contained scripts and wheels, as well as 5 items that could be used in the design - 4 of these were the same as everyone else's with one different item included! Entrants were allowed to be as crazy as they desired and could include other items of their own too...
Entrants included; Chopper, Lilian, Solde and Dizzy of H&H.
There will be more about their creations in a bit...
Our next event was the Prospect Paddywagon, hosted by Lilian. She planned to do a series of things that were similar - but not the exact same - as some of our prospecting tasks. The tasks included a game of Paintball, a Race and the obstacle course.
Points were awarded for various things but in the end we had a first and second place winner. HellBone won - proving he could handle being a Gators Prospect - and VP of H&H Neo came in second.
Finally to finish off Day 1 of the events, we had a Shooting Contest, hosted by Enforcer Gary...
Two attempts to get the highest score in the shooting range...
HellBone won this contest too, being followed closely by Brandon in Second place.

Day 2 - Saturday February 
Today was started by an awesome IRON MAIDEN Concert from the great High Octane Tributes group...
As always it's fun to have some good music in the swamp... Everyone always seems to have a good time at the concerts and Iron Maiden was a great choice!
A Game of Grab the Flag took place, hosted by Solde... Brandon won that contest holding onto the Flag for 10 minutes!
Then later on during the day, when many of the Europeans were tucked up and snoring in their beds, Misty hosted a Bowling and Greedy Tournament...
Kris came in first, followed by Brandon for the Bowling, and then Brandon took second place again behind a guest called AnjaSweet for the Greedy Tournament...
Busy Busy Busy but just one more day of the weekend to go!

Day 3 - Sunday February 12th, 2017
Today was the final day of the Wacky Races Build-Off...  Three Gator Judges cast an eye over the creations scoring them on Creativity, Driveability and Overall Wackiness...
Then the vehicles were raced!!! The racers were followed around the track by the Gators MC very own Dick Dastardly - HellBone - and his judging sidekick Muttly - Gary.
Dizzy - of H&H - was declared the winner with 30 points, closely followed by Lilian with 29 points and Solde with 28.5.
Following swiftly after the race though we also had a Poker Run on the sim... that was won by Dizzy who remained the victor of the day!
Then to calm all of the craziness we had a kick-butt performance from the very awesome Moon Spark!
So the weekend at the Gators was crazy busy, but a lot of fun... Still there was more to come, but for that you have to read the next post!!!

Big Boy Patch for our most recent Probie!

I've been a little distracted Gator wise recently due to our very big and busy weekend, but I have some news about one of our little Gators that needs to be shared!!
Brandon was able to be put up for vote on February 4th, and guess who earnt his big boy Gator Patch!!
Yes Brandon has worked very hard, and proved that he has what it takes to be a Gator. Successfully aided by his Sponsor - Chopper - although don't ask me how Chopper managed to behave whilst Brandon was his Prospect, he was able to complete all of the tasks and prove that he deserves his full patch.
Well done Brandon, and welcome to the family!!

Two Parties, One Weekend!!

The weekend just gone saw not just one but two Gator birthday's, and therefore two very different parties took place on the Gator Sim.
First of all was the HellBone's 40th Birthday Party... Boy did that turn out to be a real "Shitty" event...
Yes it was poop themed, for the Great Mighty Poo himself! The MC and all our guests spent a good couple of hours standing around in a giant turd while HellBone giggled like a happy school boy.
We even had some very special 'celebrity' guests...
A visit from DoodieMan - Chopper - and Crap Woman - Lil - who by the way Hell proceeded to mark as his own territory, while dressed like a little turd!
Then we had, a little more of a normalish special event for the lovely Lil, who celebrated another year older!
This was a special event that she had been asking for a while if we could arrange. Lil wanted Led Zeppelin, so we got her Led Zeppelin - thanks to Boomer and the high Octane crew!
We woke up the swamp with a rocking performance by Led Zepplin that had Lil trying to break her RL chair as she danced... I couldn't help but catch some pretty pictures of our Birthday girl enjoying the show...
Birthdays are always fun at the Gators!!!!
