Wild Mustang Horse Park and The Bull Pen

January 29, 2008

Wild Good Times at Mustang!  Wooooo hooooo and Yeeeee hawwwwwww!

The “Bull Pen” features Bart the Bull, and his brother Buck who are hands down the meanest bulls in SL. That meanness can be attributed to steaks cooking on the grill there along with ribs and burgers. There’s also great keg beer on tap,  and the dance floor usually has some hard drivin’ blues or country streaming. Occasionally we’ve been lucky enough to have Utopia sponsor our favorite DJ, ColoradoCowboy (aka CC)

  Moto has perfected the skill of not spilling his beer while bull riding.

The Horse park features the SL Riding Club’s exclusive authentic barrel racing system, with regular matches and lessons depending on available volunteer crew. Trophy buckles and rosette ribbons are awarded along with  occasional prizes from various sponsors.

Miranda and Banjo hosted a jousting workshop to assist our crew to ready for Knight and Dame dubbing ceremonies coming up. All BG members are eligible to be knighted, especially staff and crew that do a lot of visitor greeting and assistance. You do need a draft horse for jousting as well as cool armor for you and your steed.  Lady Chanta of Utopia will be doing the dubbing, TBA. Miranda and Cindy are busy creating the ceremony grounds, while Tonsea and friend consult on proper dialog for the dubbing.

 

Wild Mustang Horse Park & Equestrian Mall is a build by Bolero Group, sponsored by Utopia and Wild Mustang Estates. The Bolero Group founded and manages the SL Riding Club, where the horse park is the SLRC’s main showgrounds. In the works are sims to be connected to Wild Mustang Estates for trail riding.

BG Motorsports and Racing Team

January 22, 2008

The BG Racing team is getting its feet wet with SL auto, motorcycle, and aero racing! After a little training and practice, A couple of our rookie drivers and some pit crew went to check out a sanctioned track race. Moto reported it was a good learning experience. From that, the team can set guidelines for training and competing.

Ken has been helping to develop the team’s racing suits and car support, while Johnnie has been seeking out and testing the best performing models of cars in SL. Moto and Johnnie have been compiling a list of known tracks in SL and will soon have that available to team members. BG Racing Team Founder Ineeda Jewell is working at organizing practices, recruiting, training, and guidelines with the support of Kimmy, Moto, Johnnie, Ken, and the rest of the pit crew.

If you are interested in participating with the race team, spectating, or listening in on the group channel, ask anyone mentioned above for an invitation to the BG Racing Group. The one requirement all participants and spectators must respect, is descripting your avatar. No bling, AOs, HUDs, and turn Voice off in prefs. These are common rules at most race tracks, especially during sanctioned races.

 

Toy Report!!!

Several new planes, cars, boats, and bikes are becoming available in SL. Apolon’s Cessna 172 and 172 Seaplane (Hydra) are soooo easy to fly!  HD Cruiser motorcycles have improved too. Moto mentioned the new bikes are crossing sim borders better here in Azure. The Delta Hang Glider (Apolon) is a must-have, as well as the Snap Kayak recommended by Johnnie. The only cars that cruise on roads are Apolon vehicles. Most all other cars in SL go too fast and better suited for race tracks. No one’s reported the latest/greatest sailboat, yacht, or speedboat, so if you know of watercraft that are way cool, let us know!
