6th Annual “The Sign of the Times” Party

The sign for the 6th annual Sign of the Times party has been constructed, and the fireworks launchers have been installed. Will you be joining us on New Year’s Eve for our yearly tradition?

JackIsJanx and PhisaGrim and MikeyTyrant were all buzzing around the new Rainbow Island Amusement Park yesterday getting things in order.

Some of the diversions on Rainbow Island include:

  • Rainbow Pathway Race
  • Human Hockey
  • Pig Fishing
  • The p00ter and Janx Improv Theatre
  • The Giant Cage of Parrots
  • Jack’s Snack Shack (and also a “Mysterious Donut”)

Jack and Phisa had started construction of the various amusements several months ago, and had pre-laid out the site for the sign. It was a simple matter for Mikey and I to drop and set up the sign. I’ve been exploring with cement on the nearby mainland for a while, but the action this  evening will be fully focused on Rainbow Island. (We may pop out to visit the previous 5 signs scattered throughout the various reaches of the GamingEDUs survival world that has been migrated from the Professional Play Server.)

Please drop by and join us! The official events will take place between 7-9 pm ET, but things will be going on this afternoon on the server as well in preparation! Hope to see you there!

Hey! It’s Phisagrim, Emily606, Technascribe, Jack1225, GumbyBlockhead, Terragrim, PraxisMaxis, and Liragrim!

We had a great get-together on the GamingEDUs Professional Play server to celebrate 2015 and welcome in 2016. Full details, with pictures and even some video to follow after a few hours of sleep to recuperate!

2016 Sign of the Times Party

2016-Sign-of-the-Times-INVITE

The 2016 Sign has been installed, and preparations are underway for the 2016 Sign of the Times celebration, scheduled for New Year’s Eve. This year, members of our community will be meeting in the Northeastern Reaches of the GamingEDUs Professional Play Server (in Survival) at Gumby’s newest build, The Red Castle.  You can join us by logging on and using /warp 2016Sign to get straight to the party. Things will be well underway by 8 PM Eastern Time.

Jack and Emma and CosmicDragon and Joop have all been lending a hand with getting things ready. Jack’s Snack Shack is back again, with the menu already posted. Emily has opened Emily’s Art Gallery right next door. We have a wonderful Viewing Area set up again this year, and Cosmic has started work laying out the wiring for the fireworks. Our Selfie-Station is in place in front of the sign, and we will be taking a group photo just before 8 pm, so be sure to be online a bit early!

New arrivals to The Red Castle may also be interested in undertaking a self-guided tour of the structure, which features a prototype sorting facility in the basement and an XP/ZombieDrop Farm just across the front yard. The recently-installed Pyramid Chickenatorium is housed beneath a nearby Desert Temple a short walk away.

As with our previous New Year’s celebrations in 2013, 2014, and 2015, the Sign of the Times: 2016 get-together promises to be a great event! Be sure to drop by! Party hats provided!

SPECIAL NOTE:  In addition to the Sign of the Times party at 8 pm, we are also hosting the first annual Great Wall of Gumby Marathon Run Event, commencing at 7 PM Eastern Time, one hour before the New Year’s event. To join the run, meet at the Circle Garden at Gumby’s HorsieField Castle. You can get their directly by joining us at /warp GumbyMarathon — arrive shortly before 7 pm so that you have time to get fed and hydrated before we head out. We’ll be running the complete perimeter of the Gumbian Empire atop The Great Wall. We’ll conclude by travelling back by boats from the far end of the wall via the ocean portion as demarked by The Sea Towers.
