The Grand Tour returns to Second Life with The â€œAll Aboard Grand Tourâ€ on Saturday and Sunday, February 19 and 20, 2011. The tour includes 15 different locations with a theme of trains and transportation.The Grand Tour began in 2008 as a positive expression after some unpopular decisions by Linden Lab left many residents discouraged. A few people got together and created the marathon event. The All Aboard Grand Tour is the fifth tour. The creator of the event, Fogwoman Gray, summarizes the purpose, which had become the motto of all grand tours: â€œTo bring all nations and groups together to demonstrate why we stay and what is importantâ€.
This sounds like a lot of fun to be had, and there’s an event in Steelhead on Sunday afternoon. My neighbors in the group of steam-themed sims are an amazingly eclectic group, and that’s just one of many communities putting together events.
Will try to get some time if near the computer this weekend to drop in.
