‘NEVERLAND’ … Calas Galadhon’s 2016 Halloween build

It’s that time of year again … busy (with a bit of crazy thrown in)  late August through November for us as we work to bring our annual Calas Halloween build, followed  by the popular Christmas sim for the Holidays.

This Labor Day weekend we wanted to let our members and visitors know that work has begun on this year’s Calas Galadhon Halloween sim (actually two sims) outside the Park

The name and theme … ‘NEVERLAND’  ..another unique build with a mix of beauty and Halloween fun and another amazing music stream that Truck has designed for the build. I think we can promise you another wonderful October experience!

a few peeks of work in progress …

Neverland 5

 

Neverland 3Neverland 1aAs in the past, all of our live music performances for October will be held at the Halloween Pavilion there.

Time to start thinking of those costumes 🙂 Think Pirate, Hook, Pan, Fairy, Fantasy or just scary 🙂

We’ll keep you updated as the build progresses.

Enjoy your September!

Changes on Mirromere / CALAS May donations AWESOME!

MIRROMERE

Woodland Magic

As some of you may know, our MIRROMERE region was one of the three original sims of CALAS along with DIMRILL DALE and of course CALAS GALADHON when the park was created in the fall of 2009.   Since early 2010, except for occasional minor changes it stayed  pretty much the same over the years. This spring we wanted to take time to update this beloved sim, improving on it’s theme. You’ll still find much of the west side of the sim familiar with its Redwoods and overlooks … just improved.

On its’ eastern half The Calas Caverns are gone but in their place … a beautiful mountain meadow, providing more open areas to explore on foot, horseback …. and with the stream running up the center of the valley, by kayak & boat. Until we started ‘digging’ there we didn’t realize we had so much unused space on that side of the sim.

Mirromere Valley

We think you’ll come to love its natural beauty along with the many new sitting and dance areas, paths and trails.  Kayaks for public use can be found on the dock at the Park entrance on the CaLas Galadhon sim as well as on GULF OF LUNE, LONG LAKE and ARMENELOS with rowboats on Gulf of Lune & Long Lake.  The horse rezzer is now near the campsite on the western edge.  In addition, the Cuddle Boat Tour of the Northern Regions (the purple one) has been changed to take you up the middle of the valley before heading off to ARMENELOS.

MAY DONATIONS

May was a wonderful month with 92.4% of the Monthly goal reached! The last couple of years we’ve had to rely on donations to cover a large part (60%) of the costs to keep the park sims together and running with Truck and I picking up the remaining 40%.  The overage this month will help us cover any shortages as we head into the slower summer months when visitor counts go down.

Our deepest gratitude to those who are able to support the CALAS GALADHON PARK sims in this way! Everyone donation, no matter how small helps … Thank you!

SUMMER PLANS

We have some fun events planned as we head into the heat of summer …. Watch for upcoming notices!

If you haven’t yet, take some time to explore the changes we made on GULF OF LUNE this past April!

Keeping watch ...

Enjoy the month ahead  🙂
