What a SciWorld!

A SciWorld for the ages! Where do I even begin? With some of the most diverse topics & panels I’ve ever seen, great ideas & comments from the audience, and a trivia event that felt more like a shark feeding frenzy, this SciWorld had it all. I haven’t even mentioned the hilarious opening ceremony video yet; thank you Charles and the team for that. If you missed SciWorld, we look forwarding to seeing you at FallFest, which will happen sometime later this year. Both events will be held in this discord server moving forward.

Now that TNU Project‘s SimmingHub has officially assumed the management & administration of SciWorld & FallFest with the completion of our first convention, I would like to personally thank Ongoing Worlds and Charles Star for sponsoring the last three SciWorlds and all 10 FallFests. Your service to the community is much appreciated and we hope to live up to the ideals you championed. On behalf of the Ongoing Worlds Board of Advisors and the SimmingHub Organizing Committee it is also an honor of mine to bestow some awards to members of the community, without whom this event would not have been possible.

Aurther Winters is awarded the OWCH

Aurther Winters of Independence Fleet is hereby awarded the Ongoing Worlds Community Honor (OWCH) for service as chair of the 2021 SciWorld Online Convention.  This year’s SciWorld was a complete success in all facets: attendance, content, and energy.  Thanks to Aurther’s superior leadership and organizational talents, his club and the entire community came together to create a once-in-a-lifetime event that SciWorld participants will remember for years to come.  He put together a top-notch schedule and ensured a smooth second-to-none festival from start to finish.  On behalf of the Ongoing Worlds Board of Advisors, SimmingHub Organizing Committee and role players across the net, thank you, Aurther, for a job well done!

Marie T is also awarded the OWCH

Marie T is also awarded the Ongoing Worlds Community Honor (OWCH) for service in support of the 2021 SciWorld Online Convention. Anyone who attended knows that Marie played an integral role in making SciWorld XIX the unique success that it was. Her creative drive and organizational skills were invaluable. In addition, her efforts significantly aided in transition of FallFest and SciWorld management from Ongoing Worlds to TNU Project. Thank you and well done, Marie.
