September Building Competition

September is here, the kiddies are back to school, and mom and dad just want to play! Your task is to build a treehouse so they can escape from RL while the kids are at school!

Make sure you add lots of fun toys, like a swing, a rope ladder or bridge, an escape hatch, a slide, and maybe even a walkie-talkie or two! Think like a kid, but build for an adult!

When: September 12 - 14
Start time: 8am SLT Friday
End time: 6pm SLT Sunday
Scoring starts: 6pm SLT Sunday through 6pm SLT Monday
People's Choice Voting time is the same as the builder's score times.

1st: L$2000
2nd: L$1000
3rd: L$500

Plus we have trophies for the top 3, a gift for the top winner from Bunnie Badger, and Gift Cards from Clutter for the top 3 prizes.


See you on the 12th!

Flip this Build Winners Announcement

Oops! With my RL spinning out of control on the 24th I forgot to post the winners!

This month the theme was "Flip this Build!" The builders were given a build and some textures, their job was to take it apart, and reconstruct something new and different!

The builders didn't disappoint us, their creations were amazing!

Drumroll please . . .

People's Choice is Shayla Sideways!

Third Place goes to Terra Tepper - she wins L$500
Second Place goes to Levi Ewing - he wins L$ 1,000
First Place goes to Shayla Sideways - she wins L$2,000

Congratulations everyone! Can't wait to see you on Sept. 12th!

Flip this Build! - August 15, 16, and 17

Hello Builders!

This month we are doing something VERY different! We will be giving you a full perm build, and some full perm textures. Your goal is to make the build different, using ONLY the prims and textures given to you. You may twist them, cut them, resize them, torture them, and retexture them! You must use at least half of the total prims given to you, but do not add any prims to the prim count. (All prims will list the original creator, and we do check!) You can use the prims to create furnishings, plants, and decorations too.  You may use scripts, either those included with the build, or others.

For this competition no mesh will be allowed. You can use sculpt maps on the prims included in the build given to you.

We want to see you maximize your creativity, this should be a challenge that requires most of the time allotted for the competition. We are not looking for a simple retexturing or resizing, but a transformation from what you are given to the limits of your imagination. This build may be a home, a store, a factory, a club, etc. It should be built to the "standard" avatar measurements (with a little fudging allowed for camera controls.)

The building package will be rezzed on the platform and available only to those registered. It will include the build, textures, and a builder's tape measure (and perhaps some other building tools that we get donated between now and the competition).

* * * * * I M P O R T A N T * * * * *
If you want to participate, you must register and have all the right tags by Thursday, August 14th at 6pm SLT, as I will not be available on Friday to facilitate that (due to RL obligations). If you don't know what the right tags are, don't hesitate to ask another B2B member, DanielRockport, or Jolie Serendipity.

Start time: 8am SLT, August 15th
Stop building: 6pm SLT, August 17th
Builders' score time: 6pm SLT Aug 17 - 6pm SLT Aug 18
People's choice voting: 6pm SLT Aug 17 - 6pm SLT Aug 18

Awards Ceremony: August 24th (time to be announced as we are closer to the date)

We also have sponsors who offer prizes, notably Bunnie Badger from Two Moon Gardens and Kat Alderson from Clutter. If you know anyone who would like to contribute to our cause, please have them contact me so we can make arrangements for advertising on the sponsor board and blog.
