Meet Your Candidates – September 9th, 2011 Election

We have received 2 candidate submissions for the 2 postions to be filled in the upcoming September 9th Directors Election. The following represents the text from the 2 submissions (in no particular order):

Hiya! It’s me Sunny, Sunrize Mornington. I wish to stand as a director and serve a full term; giving back to the community I love.

I have been active in the SLSA since June 2008, have surfed many comps and I have been privileged to be a judge; judging 2 pros and 2 opens.

I want to see the SLSA grow and become more financially sound. I feel we need more classes to teach others to take part in their surf community, not only as competitors but as staff for the competitions. Classes need to be held on various days and times to allow more people to get involved. I love this community and want it to thrive in Second Life.

Please put me on the ballet and let’s keep this party going. :)

Sincerely,
Sunrize Mornington

Heya

Please accept this notecard as my application to run for a position as one of the directors of the SLSA.

I am not planning on any long vacations or out of country jaunts for the next 6 months and I spend a fair amount of time at my desk so Im usually able to stay in pretty regular contact with SLSA stuff. Course the Christmas holidays and folks coming to visit an so on.

I’m on Tsunami team by Colleen’s good graces and I have no product affiliations but Luscious and I do hang out together sometimes. I live on a lil island at Monkey and am sole owner/person who pays rent.

I’m pretty hopeless at building things or webstuff, but I’m organized (except my inventory) and usually not too much of jerk. I think I could do OK coordinating things or talking to people and I do believe SL needs the SLSA or it would be a much more boring place.
