Steelhead Reunion at Club Gearz
On the night of Tuesday August 2, Fuzzball Ortega, the former sheriff of the noted Steelhead Steampunk community, hosted a reunion meeting with about a dozen members of the group. It was close to a year ago in which the owner of the community's land, TotalLunar Eclipse, reluctantly made his decision to close the estates due to real-life problems and Linden Lab locking out his account in a dispute. While one sim, Nevermoor, was eventually saved, the rest could not be, and closed sometime in November. While the members of the community have scattered, mostly across elsewhere in the Steamlands of Second Life, many if not most have remained in the group. Last weekend, Fuzzball called for another meeting in the second story of Club Gearz, which had been relocated to Port Caledon, if nothing else to discuss possible themes for it and Willow Leafstorm's Green Fairy club still in Ravenwood Forest (former Nevermoor). But he imagined there were many who missed the crazy town hall gatherings, "And besides, when was the last time you said 'Floppy Dong' at a meeting?"
They discussed the "Almost Lag Free Relay Weekend," which a number took part in other teams as the "Stealhead Salmons" were inactive, "but we'll give it another go, next year, if folks are interested." People were, "It felt...off , to not have a Steelhead campsight." Fuzzball stated he had run 21 laps around the track, but had no comment when Rezzdammit asked if it was all in his wolf form and he was being chased be a girl in a little red riding hood.
After about an hour, the meeting was adjourned with a number of "Hoooooooo!"s. "Thank you for coming out. I do miss seeing you guys on a regular basis."
