Newsletter #43 for April 24th, 2023

Howdy folks!

It’s Tommy time! Community Liaison ThatTommyBoii reporting for newsletter duty!

I hope you’re having a good day so far, let’s see what’s new!

DS9 Earth Day parade

The Earth Day parade building contest was filled with amazing builds! So amazing that Joe has decried my puns skills in favor of one of the entrants! Who could possibly make a better pun than me?! You’ll have to watch the VOD and enjoy the floats to find out!

Thank you to team Earth Kingdom Scouts for hosting!

Kentucky Derby Parade

Our next parade is one being celebrated alongside the Kentucky Derby. Team Blackwater is the host, and the representative DahliaM wanted folks to know that the theme for this parade is basically horses. Her intentions were to pick a holiday that has the most relevance to horses, and that she believes in strong and strict reforms in the industry and cannot praise or respect the current practices held.

Folks are allowed to create floats about the derby, the hats and all the extravagance the Kentucky Derby is known for, but Team Blackwater does not condone the racing industry, or the abusive practices of the horse industry.
