Rules:

-Practice runs and training are allowed at the track prior to the race. However the track will be closed five minutes prior to the race starting in order to ready the gate.

-Any rideable horse is permitted with the exception of Amaretto Breedable Horses. I would prefer all horses look as real as possible for this event. Permissible horses include ABC Breedables, AKK Ranch, Hoof It!, Dragonsfyre, Lone Star Ranch and others. A rezzer will be provided for those who do not have any horses. If you are unsure, please bring your horse for an early inspection.

-All horses must be inspected prior to the race. This will happen one hour before the event. A horse that does not meet the above requirements can be disqualified. (Ie: Amarettos)

-Racing silks, historical horseback riding clothing (habits) and other period clothing are acceptable to wear for the race, please, no modern clothes other than racing silks will be allowed.

-Horses that fly will be disqualified if they fly during the race. Most horses that have that option can be set to no fly and should be done so prior to the start of the race. We want to make this fair and fun for everyone.

-Drop all entries into the blue mailbox on the front of the Pottery Shed building. LM: Pottery Shed No entries will be accepted via inventory drop as my ims occasionally cap.

-Entries are due by Friday, August 1st to be eligible for the August 2nd Race. No entries will be accepted the day of the race.

Vintage Readers Book Club: Frankenstein

Ms. Patricia Toolips has been leading the Vintage Readers Book Club for several months now.  Hard to believe, isn’t it?!  Each Sunday at 3PM SLT, the group meets on the upper floor of the Philomenaville Library; the cozy nook at the top of the stairs.

So far, the group has sipped tea (and was that something stronger that wafted from a few tea cups?).  The group has read such timeless classics, and lesser known novels such as Bram Stoker’s The Jewel of Seven Stars, Alice Hegan Rice’s Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch, and John Buchan’s The Thirty-nine Steps.  This coming Sunday, the group shall meet to discuss the first three chapters of  Mary Shelley’s timeless literary classic and masterpiece (or is it?  Come share your opinion on that matter) Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus.

So, stop on by and engage in some interesting discussion regarding a novel while mixing in some good ol’ fashion small town gossip! Come prepared with some points of discussion regarding the book.  All are welcome, as always; even if you didn’t get a chance to read.  This is not a role-play event, but some light Role-play is always welcome; period dress is not required, but is most certainly not dissuaded.

Grand Opening of the Dafthouse Bohemian Den

Tonight, Friday July 18th marks the Grand Opening Party for the Dafthouse.  The Dafthouse is a venue new to the town of Philomenaville, but most certainly not new to the grid.  Our small town has had the great fortune of having the proprietress of the establishment decide to open a new location here!

6:30PM SLT – DJ Howard Plutonian will be playing music from the future and there will be dancing.

7PM SLT – The dreamy voice of PT Beardy will be serenading us, and we can keep dancing.

Ms. Crumbles Idlemind expresses that she looks forward to meeting all the the neighbors, and show the constable what law abiding citizens she and the Dafthouse members are.
