welcome for web article

Third Rock Grid would like to invite you to a celebration of the diversity of life on Earth, with a weekend of entertainment on, and including the 20th to the 22nd of September.

We are entering the phase of Equinox, where the seasons change as they have done since the planet came into existence. It’s an occasion that only happens x 2 a year on approximately the 20th of March and 22nd September. It’s when the Sun crosses the celestial equator from north to south. So in the North the days get shorter, as Autumn and Winter is on its way . While on the other side of the celestial equator, it heralds the beginning of Spring and longer days of Summer. It’s always been a reason for celebration since time began. So whichever side of the equator you are living on, join us is some fun events , top quality live music , and competitions to celebrate!

We have something for everyone this Celestial weekend and some big money prizes for some of our competitions… As well as our regular live musicians, we are adding more artists to entertain you, some you have heard before – some not . Starfleet is organizing a civilian mission which I am told involves ‘Klingons’.  Now I got into serious trouble with the Admiral last year when he discovered I broke a Federation Starship… but it was fun, and gives you an insight into roleplay on the grid.

For the more competitive we have a Speedbuild event, some Orca racing, as well as the famous 3RG Walkway Race ,Treasure Hunt and Grid Explorers Club all taking place in the Community Core. Just a tip off – we have a series of underground passages you may know nothing about. Laz is the only person who knows them all . Don’t worry we will TP you out if you get lost. Stay alert , somebody may still be down there from last year!

We have Art events.  Elvodar Lamilton is going to read us a short story during the ‘Literary Hour’. He’s not saying what yet, but I am told its probably science fiction and humorous. He does this in voice, but also has text on display for translation .  So don’t worry if you have English as a second language, or if you can’t hear well in voice.

So all in all we have a really interesting weekend on 3RG , packed with things to do, places to visit and explore … as well as some competitions and some Geodes looking for a home in your pocket. Or you can kick down a gear and listen to our top quality live musicians, visit some galleries and arts events.  If you have an idea for some entertainment, or are a singer who wants to take part give Sunny ,Tommy or me a shout. Things are filling fast but we can always find room for something new.

So get it in your diary …. 20th to 22nd September inclusive, and if you have anything to add let’s get it on the calendar. Let’s make it a fun weekend for everybody!
