The Mystery of Bigfoot In There

Therians have been sharing the legend of Bigfoot around the campfire for years. There has been a small group of Bigfoot hunters who have finally captured photos of the beast in the wild. Most recently, Camp-A-Palooza campers have spotted him out at Camp Cubby.

Every Tuesday night, campers meet at Camp Headquarters and set out on a hike to a new camp location. Once the campers have descended upon the new spot, they drop a PAZ and pitch their tents. Campers enjoy a week-long vacation relaxing by the campfire, roasting s’mores, singing songs and making new friends. At the end of the week it’s off to the next camping location!

Earn camp badges for every week that you set up camp. Everyone who drops a PAZ and sets up camp is eligible for a weekly prize. The weekly winner will also receive a Big Foot prop. Ready to go camping and pitch a tent? Purchase a PAZ from Shop Central, you’ll need to drop it at the weekly campsite in order to set up camp.

There are now just shy of a dozen new small waterfront Neighborhoods spread throughout Aurora, Kansas and Comet with one unique landlocked lavender field 20-Acre hood on Aurora.

Please note, team members of the winning color team who were not born till after the end of the games will not qualify to receive a winner’s jacket. If you miss an event, please send a ThereMail to WTG_Avie and let them know when you will be available in-world to receive your medal.

Please note, due to additional Winning Medal Pick Up events being added so that everyone can claim their reward, we have extended the Nametag Blackout Date from March 19th to March 26th. On Monday, March 27th you will once again be able to change your nametag color.

 

Connect With Your Name Tag Color Team For There Games

Join your name tag color team in participating in the Winter There Games events over the next two weeks. Not sure which team you are on? Stop by the Winter There Games Welcome Center and click on the handy name tag sign and it will tell you which team you belong to.

there_there_hoods_2017-02-22-22-59-47

Once you know the color of your team, you’ll want to join the special name tag club associated with your color in order to communicate with your teammates and keep up to date about events they are attending. Every name tag team has a link to an in-world Instant Message on their club page so that you can communicate in real-time and summon other members to your location.

Next, you’ll want to check out your name tag color team hangout in the Winter There Games Village. Think of the hangouts as a spot to tailgate before the Winter There Games events start. You can plan meet and greets, parties, roundups or practice your card game skills with other teammates prior to the Games.

there_there_hoods_2017-02-22-20-49-25

Everyone on your team has hosting rights to the Lot. You can decorate your team hangout by setting an Event and dropping items. The items will remain out in the Lot until the next person who sets an event clears the Lot. It’s a good idea to save your layout so that you can set it back out at a later time if you need it. We ask that you stick to decorating your own name tag color Lot and let the other teams take care of their own hangouts.

there_there_hoods_2017-02-22-21-57-48

You can find decorative There Games items in the Auctions to spruce up the place! Keep your team color and the Winter There Games in mind when decorating your team hangout.

We look forward to checking out the creative and fun builds all of the different teams come up with. Find your team hangout and start decorating!
