Something old, something new …

Some of you may remember when we held a couple of shows last year in what we called the ‘Mountain Meadow’ …

Mountain Meadow

We’ve kept the build above the skies of Armenelos using it as a  private location in the past to just get away from what is happening below. We almost forgot it was there until coming across the Landmark in inventory.  I know … sad isn’t it?  lol  With the future never certain, we wanted to open it up now for all to enjoy. You’ll find a number of spots to just relax with friends, spend time with a special someone or some quiet time by yourself.  Intans are in place and working :-). (the photo on the LM will show OZ … sneaky aren’t we ..he he … but no worry, it takes you there)

Take the yellow brick road to OZ, the most beautiful club in SL…

 

OZ ADVERTISEMENTe copyLooking for a gorgeous place to take your favorite dancing partner…check out OZ at Calas Galadhon Park. OZ is one of two music venues on the Armenelos sim. The detail and craftsmanship there are extraordinary – it costs $295/month to keep the lovely Greek Island Santorini-styled sim and these gorgeous music venues going! It’s just a small part of the cost of the total Calas Galadhon Park so donations are appreciated if you can afford it and want to help keep it alive. There are no rentals, no shops and you’re welcome in all the buildings. There are interactive things to do throughout the park – boats, horses to ride and balloons and eagles to fly, for example. And, you may find some gifts strewn about. You can see the donation totals for the month at the landing spots. Don’t bother if the goal has been reached for the month – spread those Lindens around the rest of the park:) From its high style art deco decor to the awesome no ads custom music stream, you won’t find a better place to trip the light fantastic. Click here for a little preview…

Calas Galadhon Park officially opened at 8:17:59 SLT this morning!

Truck&Tymus-3ASee below for some important notes and a preview :)

Our Live Music program remains on hold for now.

Both cuddle boat tours … and the balloon tour of course … are up and running … just in time for ride with your favorite Valentine :-)

You will find new Donation Kiosks on each sim.   On each kiosk you will find information including:

  • our monthly cost in fees to Linden Lab for that particular sim in US dollars
  • the ‘TARGET’ amount in Lindens if we are to meet that monthly cost for that sim via donations
  • a progress bar showing how close the donations for that sim are to meeting the monthly ‘TARGET’.

Each donation kiosk will be reset at the beginning of each month to give an accurate monthly accounting on how that sim is doing in cost coverage.  As in the past, you will find in some cases multiple kiosks on any one sim.  All kiosks on a sim will now be networked so that any donation to that sim will show on ALL of that sims kiosks … including any change to the progress bar.

It has become clear to both Truck and I that it is likely that we will be reducing the size of the Park once again by May 1st.  How the Park will look after such a change, is yet unclear. With a current cost in fees to Linden Lab close to $1500 US/month and with  increasing RL demands for time and funds, this decision has been an obvious, though painful one, for us to make.  We both do love the work and sharing it with our friends/members and with the SL public.  As usual, we will keep you as up to date as possible.

That said … welcome back and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Affectionately,

Ty & Truck

Did someone say VALENTINE’S DAY ?

With winter weather still firmly in place in most of the US, Truck and I thought our members might appreciate us reopening the Park a bit earlier than we planned.  We still have a bit of work to do … finishing touches mainly … but we didn’t think you’d mind a few ‘work’ signs here and there.

What better time to reopen Calas than on Valentine’s Day! So it will be.  We’ll open the gates as soon as we stumble in with a cup of coffee this Friday morning (SLT), Feb 14.

Last chance to visit Calas Galadhon until March 1 – the park closes February 1 for a makeover:)

 

fox_001Just a not to remind you all that Calas Galadhon park closes from February 1 to March 1 to complete the changeover to Spring. So today is your last chance to visit the wintry parts of the park before that all melts away and to get a little preview of Spring on the farm sims. Ty has the ‘purple’ cuddle boat (south sims )running again next to the docks. He says he did one test run, but you know Ty …  bring your life jacket just in case ;)  Leave Ty a note if any of you have trouble. He says the park may open earlier than March, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated through the website and the group messages. Try and stop by today one last time before March!

Pssst, Spring is closer than you think…

There are fireflies in the garden...

There are fireflies in the garden…

Since the park has been so quiet the past two weeks and Ty and Truck are both tired of Winter an impromptu survey resulted in the ice starting to melt at Calas Galadhon. I hear the farm sims will be getting a jump on Spring first so you might want to visit before the end of the month when the park closes till March! I missed those fireflies…
