Flying Bird range released

Top Dingo Recently released the first in a range of flying birds, available in our Store at Ponden as well as vendors and SL exchange.

The new birds roam within a range set by menu, can be set to sing at different intervals and there are options to make them faster or slower as well.  Max the magpie also swoops and messages as he hits unsuspecting visitors on the head ( he comes with a warning sign)

Pond Build Competition

On the weekend we held a Build Competition for the Pond, attracting more than 20 entries. The theme was sculpture, with old and new builders having a crack at the criteria of being original, having artistic merit, being suitable for display at the gallery and a quality build. The main comp was for build on the day, with a existing work category and a prize for best new talent.

Some great new talent emerged, with the public vote declaring Leilah Petrov the most popular ( she also won the best new talent ). Second most popular was a piece of Pop art by Stupid Laws, which attracted a lot of interest and opinion.

We loved most of the work, and it was very hard to choose winners, but in the end the criteria helped us to score them fairly. Elul Rehulas Flower Egg was the overall winner, followed by MudSlinger Nings Spinny thingamajig.

Equal third went to Ezuru Reifsneider and Veloceraptor Vogelbaum. Best Existing went to Uriel Blackadder for his dragon.

Jett Dragonash and Bowlofnoodle Tomorrow getting special mentions.

The competitions was very well attended, with crowds lingering for hours to view the work and vote.

Two Up

After the Anzac Service, calls went up for a game of Two up.  The Dingo team thought this was a splendid idea, and retreated to the dingo lair to build SLs first game of two up, which was played for hours out the back of the Billabong bar that evening. Pants made a fabulous Boxer, and many Lindend were won by lucky spinners. Of course, being in SL we could not place bets, merely pay for winners, but the true spirit of the game was eveident as the onlookers joined in the calls and jostled for a chance to be spinner. All in the shadow of a new memorial for the Anzacs - it was a very Australian experience.

Anzac Day

In a beautiful and deeply moving ceremony the Pond paid tribute to the Anzacs with a memorial service. The service followed tradition and included hymns, readings from current servicemen, amazing grace and the last post. Flags flew at half mast and a wreath was added to the many at the memorial. It was humbling to be a part of the day, and we are proud to have contributed.
