Jack, Avariel and Unit #6 look at the letter with one word written on it…
“I… think… it… is… time…” rumbled Unit #6 “But… we… must… judge… on… SQUEE…”.
The dark unicorn pondered “I think Frolicality is important too”.
Jack waved his stick! “Goatlyness!”.
Its time to anounce the animal for the New-Babbage winter snow animal build contest for this wonderful year 188x! Yay!
And this years animal is… GOATS!
Prizes awarded based on Goatlyness, Frolicality and SQUEE!
Runner up / Notable mention: L$100
I will sync the closing date with the other snowpeople competitions as they are announced.
Prim count will be 15 prims or less as with the other snowpeople competitions, old style prims or mesh are good, sculpties less so as we are generally trying to move away from sculpts.
We’re doing goats?
Ok, how long is it going to be before someone does a snow version of “old Goat Legs?”
I did one last year, so I’ll try something else this time :o)
Mornington done, two years back. :)
Imagine if someone did the inverse of that. A goat with human legs…
Er… I might be overthinking this.

*Ponders on how one would make a goat and wanders off to see just how bad she does at it … *
Don’t forget.. you can sponsor a build by declaring the category and the prize right here, the prize can be silly or serious. Catch is, you have to judge it too!
Just be glad that this year I’m not sponsoring the exploding animals category.
Oh no! We need a replacement sponsor for the exploding snowpeople contest!
1) Go to fountain.
2) Build snowperson.
I’d like to sponsor a category of ‘Evil Genius Gift’.
Must be evil in some way, look geniusy, and have some indication that it’s a present.
15 prims maximum, old-school or mesh.
Runner up / Notable mention: L$100
This category has now been judged.
First prize goes to Linus Mistwallow for his fun and clever Basket of Kittens. Second prize goes to Kimika Ying for her fiendish Sculpted Ballgown, which genuinely made me laugh out loud. Congratulations and thanks to both of them – their prizes have been sent :o)
Since there were no other entries, there are no other prizes awarded. The remaining prize money will be donated to the New Babbage Orphanage.
Congrats Winners, including the New Babbage Orphanage! Yay!
Fanks ya koindly!!! Oy swear no kitten was ‘armed in the process…
Can you build snowmen for more than one category?
I have a few ideas in mind…
– Edward Hyde
Yes, people have in the past. *nods*
You can also try to mash as many categories into one for extra fun!
Well me goat be prancin’ around da fountain. Hmm what next ….
Category: The Horror in the Snow
What if the universe were different? What if all things were not as they seem?
What if our New Babbage leaders – Mr. Tenk, Vic Mornington, Mr. Underby, Ed
Pearse and The Emperor (Ret.) were all in actuality Lovecraftian Old
Ones? The horror! What would they look like? Arachnoid? Cephalopod? Octopoid?
Amorphous blobs of pre-antidiluvian mush?
Here’s your chance to blend Mythos with snowy wonders. It’s your hallucination. You build it.
Santa hats and dangly Christmas ornaments are permissible.
15 prims max.
4th: L100 and a firm, manly handshake
Use of any sculpts will reverse the prize, i.e. you pay me.
And I thought those blokes were weird as it is.
“It’s your hallucination. You build it.”
Defintely today’s quote of the day.
Catergory: Snow Forts!
The urchins need a range of snow forts to use in the forthcoming snowball fights. There would need to be room for one or two urchins to stand inside, and the front would have to offer some protection from the usual snowballs.
Naturally, Clockhaven Square is a bit small to have lots of thses full size, so lets have smaller models there, say 0.5m base, but the full versions can be as large as you like (smaller ones may be better for use…).
Mesh or prim, 10prim land impact when sized 2m * 3m, and using the NB Snow texture.
Would hope all entrys would be either gifted to the City or for sale to citizens.

Pole-dancing snow goat!
*takes a gander at Myrtil‘s goat and jaw drops. “Well, look like she done won dis one but dang it, da pole dancin’ goat is funny ain’t it?” *giggles and wanders off*
This here is Pocket String and I am a very fine fellow, so I is thinking you should build a snowman of me for there is no finer thing to build! I will be watching you building Snowman Pocket for me for me!
I would l-love to make a snowman of you! B-b-but what do you look like?
I’m going to extend the deadline for the snow animal contest to Sunday the 3rd. After that I will take the photographs and the judges will decide on the winners! Yay!
*sounds the Goat siren!*
First round of photographs have been taken!
I will pop round after midnight SLT to catch any last minute entries!
This is the last call for snow goats before the judging!
The snow animal contest is now closed!
Jack, Unit #6 and I will now start the process of judging the entries.
