Please help me in congratulating the 2020 and 2021 Simming Prize winners. They are all more than deserving, each serving the community in their own unique way. While some are relative newcomers, others have been with us for many years. They represent the cream of the crop within simming & online role playing, and give us all something to strive towards. Well done, Simming Prize Laureates!
I hope that you all are enjoying the holiday season of 2021! We are still not out of the woods in this pandemic thing but hopefully in 2022 we can make further progress together. Earlier this fall we all joined together for a wonderful FallFest hosted by 5th Fleet and chaired by their Chief of Operations Nixon. The event was great and people spoke well of things; I am happy that the hand over to SimmingHub has went so well and that people were willing to help run the event even though someone else was handling behind the scenes. I am honored to be a part of this moving forward and I want to thank 5th Fleet for helping this year making the event a success. This all could not have been done without their direct oversight of the set-up, planning and running of the event. I hope that we all as a community are able to keep all of this going over the years to make future FallFests and this next year’s SciWorld as successful as those prior.
Please remember that today; the 13th of November at 10:30 AM Eastern (less than an hour from now) is FallFest. Come join some of your fellow simmers/role players to take part in one of simmings premier conventions. We have games, talks and role playing planned so please join us today whenever you can. The event lasts until 4:30 PM Eastern. You can find out more information on the FallFest website at https://fallfestonline.com/. Link to the Discord and schedule are located on this site. Thank you to Fifth Fleet for hosting today’s event and Nixon for charring the event.
I come to you today with information about our host for FallFest this year. After deliberations and discussion with those interested, we have asked 5th Fleet to host this year’s FallFest. They have accepted and appointed Nixon, their Operations Chief, as the Chair for this year’s event. It has been scheduled to take place on November 13th, 2021. SimmingHub and 5th Fleet have also discussed the potential of doing voice panels for those who are interested. We are hopeful that this year will continue the success of previous events and welcome your feedback.
As always please reach out to the host and chair if you would like to host a panel, help out in any way or if you have any questions. Last but not least mark your calendars for November 13th. We hope to see you at FallFest XI!
The path was long and arduous, the list of names received from the area were grand names, and sifting through them was as difficult as the journey. Many perils along the way tried to get in the way, instead just causing delays. But alas plans came together and the end was nigh – the weary traveler arrived at last, bursting through the doors to bring the good news. Squiddie was done at last.
Yes, that’s right. The 2019 Squiddies Winners are here and ready to announce. As linked above, we have gone through a slightly delayed process, but there was much thought and deliberation for these winners. I want to thank the OngoingWorlds Board for their efforts, and all those who nominated folks initially. Most of all, I’d like to thank all the roleplayers and storytellers out there that make things fantastical and wonderful and adventurous for the rest of us!
