Season's Greetings from the Directors!

The SLSA and Surfwatch threw a joint fundraiser at the SLSA sim just after Christmas.  The party was a rousing success with plenty of presents for all, holiday trivia, and music of course.  The board thanks Ashleigh Dickins for DJing, Tauri Tigerpaw and Kitzie Lane for both providing live entertainment!  All tips benefitting the SLSA!  Additionally a mini-comp was held after the last performance and a group of  surfers battled it out on the waves, with Wilfrid Decuir taking home first, Bobbi Laval and Velvetori Twine taking second and third respectively.  They took home little trophies of SantaAbel!  Congratulations surfers!

The winners and Santa!

2009 Season 2 End of Season Awards and Stats!

First of all, thanks to everyone who came to the Rocky Horror Picture Show party the night prior to awards.  It was a lot of fun seeing everyone’s garters and lacy lingere.  The movie itself is so full of fun and absurdities that it’s a great way to release some steam and celebrate the end of a season.  Big thanks to the fabulous Desirae Beaumont for dedicating her DJing time!

And then came the awards ceremony.  Congratulations to all of the winners of this years awards.  The board is proud of the way the ceremony went with very few complications, and would like to thank all of the attendees for coming and having some fun with us as we honored this season’s greats.  Now we honor them again here in print:
