Super 6 is coming!

Super6

April 2013 will mark Raglan Shire’s 6th anniversary of being and as usual we are holding a themed-event month to celebrate. This year’s may prove to be one of the most exciting and dynamic yet!

It’s Super 6: Superheroes versus Supervillains!

For the 30 days of April, the League of Defenders (LoD) will fight back against the forces of the Legion of Tiny Villains (LTV) from spreading their influential menace across the cluster!

The LoD have erected a glorious base of operations beside the Shire’s favourite social hangout, the Paw & Whisker clubhouse. It’s a pristine white villa and has been strategically placed directly opposite the abandoned warehouse that the LTV have taken up residence in. The former base of operations of The Leftovers Catering Company has fallen into ruin but the LTV are now using it to cook up their own evil schemes!

So what do you need to do? Well first, choose your super secret identity – it could be an existing hero or it could be a brand new hero with a custom outfit; and then find some allies and prepare to square off against your foes!

But on whose side of the stream will you align yourself with? Will you stand alongside the heroes of the League of Defenders or will you set out to cause trouble with the Legion of Tiny Villains? Or will you align yourself with neither? Perhaps you will be a mercenary, ready to fight for the highest bidder or perhaps you are already part of a group that will take on all-comers!

New Jazz Paws Goodies!

Hey Tiny Fashionistas!New Jazz Paws limited edition T-shirts Spring 2012

This just in From The Raglan Weather Service!

WARM FRONT MOVING IN!

This just in from the National Raglan Weather Service! A Warm front is heading our way and is projected to arrive late Sunday through mid day Monday bringing rising temperatures to the Shire! It looks like an early Spring arrives and with it, melting snow and the possible reappearance of Grass!

As such we’ll be holding our Final skating party of Winterfest at the Skating rink on Mt Waffle. DJ Conall McGinnis will be spinning tunez and Live Musical Performer Tamra Sands will be singing for us from 1-2 pm Sunday January 23rd.  Come for the fun and wonderful music and with luck temperatures will hold cuz it would suck if the whole mountain melted and collapsed taking down the rink while everyone is on it… Medical teams will be standing by just in case..

Just sayin…

heh
