Blimey this came around quick. Tomorrow as in teusday 4th March is shrove tuesday and as such i will be holding the long standing tradition of a pancake race.
This years race will probably the hardest yet as it will not be a straight line. Starting position is here ‘http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/New%20Babbage/190/173/106‘ and will head towards the Great Fire monument and up the side of the hill to the finish line. There could be possible obsitcles.
Also this year there shall be two race events. The First at 12pm SLT for ealier folks, the second will be at 4pm SLT for later folks.
This years race is sponsored by Krakenwell & Co and have donated trophies for this years winners.
For those who need reminding, this was last years pancake race….. http://telly.com/2N8ZK8
Frying Pans for tossing pancakes will be available for FREE at the event.
[[UPDATED WITH VIDEO IN COMMENTS]]
Oh wonderful! *flexes muscles*
Yay! Are we using the same frying pans as last year? So I can use the one I unicornified.
There is a new one yes :) all new and improved, less laggy and with new animations, but you should be able to mod it easy enough :)
Mod, done! ^_^
Well, I selected Wear on the frying pan that was in notices…. and it gave a script error. Anyone else have that problem? oO
I had none.
I had a script error too, but then it worked fine so just ignore the error message I’d say!
I had a permissions error when I first put on the frying pan. But it went away when I removed it and put it back on again.
Sometimes things can get flaky when a new owner runs a script that tries to take permissions.
Yes sorry there is an odd initial perms rrequest anomoly when first worn. Ill try to figure that one out but in the mean time it should still work fine.
Well done all who took part, it was a funny course to watch people run.
Here for your viewing pleasure is the video of the Races. It is about 7 minutes long recording both events. – http://telly.com/1I35KPU
Thank you for the race, and the recording!
*tries to swat the dual-pancake pans out of her face*
Wonderful video! Yay!
*notes, unicorns are rubbish at going round tight corners and Mr Mornington can really run on those goaty legs!*
Excellent video, proving that ladies can win races without cheating, whereas urchins and gentlemen tend to be more enterprising.
I took some photos.
Thanks for the excellent video; I really must pay closer attention to goings-on in the City, else miss neat events like this one. Goaty legs do seem to provide a tactical and strategic advantage, perhaps it’s the coming thing!
