Greetings to all !!!
Every event .. has a story .. is a journey if YOU please .. There is no such thing as Utopia .
Could this have been posted weeks ago .. perhaps .. but that is not how it works with
The Grand Tour .. we are dealing with many people and each and all are busy, including ourselves .. Second Life is for fun for many of us .. Please don’t find fault in how and why things are done but simply try to enjoy what you can be part of .. *smiles*
I am most grateful to Rose Springvale .. For Three Years and Five Tours she has cheerfully put these tickets together .. This tour was extra special for we worked together to bring these events to all of YOU !!
Thank YOU for your time and We do hope to see you on the rails of the 5th Steamland Grand Tour ..

All Aboard Grand Tour Photography Contest
Welcome to the All Aboard Grand Tour!
To celebrate the All Aboard Grand Tour, Al Andalus Sims are sponsoring a 48 hour SL snapshot photography contest! Discover the beauty of these sims and the others on the grand tour and capture it in an image.
Prizes are 3000L first place, 1500L second place and 500L third.
1. All entries must be original SL snapshots taken between 5 am SLT on February 19, 2011 and 7pm SLT February 20, 2011 – the duration of the All Aboard Grand Tour.
2. Photographs must be taken somewhere in the ___sims participating in the Grand Tour. This includes (list to follow)
3. The theme for the contest is “Postcards home from the Grand Tour” – with a focus on Transportation.
Images must be suitable for display in PG sims, so images containing adult content will not be judged.
4.Take your snapshot and SAVE TO INVENTORY.
DO NOT rename it or change the description — the snapshot will then show where it was taken, when, and by whom :)
Create a notecard and name it ‘Snapshot Contest Grand Tour- (your name)’
Put the snapshot in the notecard, and include a title (for use when the snapshot is displayed) and specify the proportions to be used for display – for example ‘Taken using Current Window setting – display in landscape format’ or ‘Taken at 512 by 512 – display in square format’ IF NO INFORMATION IS GIVEN, IMAGES WILL BE DISPALYED IN SQUARE FORMAT.
A maximum of 1 entry is permitted per person. Don’t send more than one please!
Drop the notecard to Al Andalus Citizen Callipygian Christensen before 7.15 SL time on Sunday February 20th
DO NOT save your images to disk and then reupload – ANY ENTRY SUBMITTED AS A TEXTURE- NOT A SNAPSHOT – WILL NOT BE JUDGED. The purpose of the contest is snapshots using the tools available inworld, with no post processing. Feel free to use windlight settings, lighting, whatever tools you like BEFORE taking the snapshot – do not use any post processing of any kind, in world or out *after* taking the snapshot.
5. A panel of three judges will view the snapshots ‘blind’ – so will not know who took the images until judging is completed. In the event of a tie for any of the prize positions, Callipygian Christensen will vote to break the tie. All decisions of the judging panel are final. Judging will take place the week of February 21 and images will be put on display as soon as practicable, in the Al Andalus Palaces. An event to announce the winners will be scheduled for the following week.
