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!!!!
