SL11B Welcome Area

Today at 12pm SLT the SL11B regions were opened to the Second Life press/bloggers to explore the regions and enjoy the views. The welcome area is the first place the SL press goes to receive goodies and the SL11B press pack to find your way around the sims. Then get ready for the exciting tour around the SL11B regions including the main stages/main attractions. There is so much to see and do this year but it will be worth it. If you are unsure about which tour you are attending, please contact Saffia Widdershins or Enya (aquadragon.larsen).

There are now 7 days left until the SL11B community celebration opens to the public and it’s going to be so much fun this year. The final touches are being made to the builds and stages as the deadline gets nearer. This year the builds will be reflecting the theme of “The empires of the future are the empires of the mind” by Winston Churchill. For those that love hunting in Second Life, see the The SL11BIG Hunt! page. There will be cool gifts and free prizes to collect. There will be live music events, a big hunt, pod tours, exhibits to visit and much more.

I’m looking forward to seeing the SL11B sims next week for the first time and capturing the best snapshots possible. 🙂
