Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2017 Winter There Games and earned points for their team. With the Winter Games finally over, it’s time for the top three teams to reap the rewards! Several events will be held at the Winter There Games Amphitheater for winning teams to pick up their medals.
If you were on the Red, Purple or Light Blue team during the There Winter Games this year, please pop in and collect your reward. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
