Pups In The Pool

pupsinthepoolpromo

The Dog Days of Summer are H-O-T in There.com! A wild pack of canines have invaded a backyard pool in the Mahalo Neighborhood to cool off. They’ve been living it up having fun swimming and splashing around while the homeowner was away on vacation in the Tiki Islands.

Upon returning, the homeowner discovered the doggy disaster in their backyard. As you can imagine, the pool filtration system started backing up from all of the dog fur. Their efforts to coax ten pups out of the pool in order to clean it were unsuccessful. The homeowner frantically called all of the local pool cleaning services in the Virtual World There and left several messages for an emergency pool appointment. Your boss at Wicked Clean Pool Service has contacted you to take the cleaning and dog removal appointment on Thursday, July 16th at 6:00 PM Pacific.

The pool cleaning service you work for will not be the only local Thereian pool company to show up for the job. You’ll have to go up against other pool boy/girl competitors to win the job site bid. The customer expects the job to be done quick! If you can remove all ten pups from the pool in 60 seconds or less you’ll receive a Top Dog Puppy Pal prop as payment for a job well-done. The pool boy/girl who can coax all ten dogs out in the fastest amount of time will win a special 2020 Dog Days of Summer buggy.

Only twenty-five pool boys/girls will be able to compete for the job site. Spectators are welcome to lounge in the patio furniture on the deck and watch the shenanigans unfold.  All competitors will receive a special gift. Read the rules at the start of the event and listen to the instructions from the Event Host and Co-Hosts.

Cracked Out Cats

Who let the dogs out?! The Dog Days of Summer event has started in the Virtual World There.com. With so many dogs running around the islands the cats have been a little stressed out. Gather your feline friends and find sanctuary at the Cracked Out Cats event on Thursday, July 16th.

Cracked is a competitive vocabulary word game played in There. Players are challenged to race against the clock to come up with high scoring words in order to beat their opponent. Players pass around an egg timer. When the round is over a little chick bursts out of the egg and the person holding it is docked points.

Game play will start 10 minutes after the event begins. Watch the Zone IM box for the Event Host to announce the start of game play. The object is to play as many games as you can during the event to increase your score. Read the official Cracked Rules to learn about scoring and how to change the game table options.

All event attendees will receive free kitten ears for their Avatar to wear. The cool cat with the highest score will win a large cat and mice hoverboat.

Sign up for the feline-friendly Cracked Out Cats event. NO DOGS ALLOWED!
