All builders from beginner to pro are invited.  Presentations are in voice and text.  For text presentations, best bring the text in a notecard and paste it into chat.  Voice presentations may be captured in video.  Stills and videos from the show may appear in this blog. Next WIP show Next WIP show: Jan 10, Noon SLTLocation TBD Narasnook  locationPut the line below in your World Map next to Find.  Click Find. TPworld.narasnook.com:8900At Narasnook, use World Map to search for PandoraCookie II locationHG address below: paste into the World Map next to Find.
