Lake Austin Hosting 100th UO Publish Celebration on Saturday, September 8th!

Hi everyone!

I want to announce that Lake Austin is hosting a special event to celebrate the 100th Publish of UO on Saturday, September 8th, from 10:00 am USC (GMT -6) until 7:00 pm USC. At 7:00 pm we adjourn for players to attend East Coast Shard EM Events, and then return to LA at 8:00 pm USC for the LA EM Event that evening! 

Many of the events will take place at the LA-unique Fairgrounds created for us in Malas, including a dunk tank recently gifted to us by Mesanna. (Thanks Mesanna!) Booths with player's goods and services will be available there all during the day. Gating will be provided from Luna and West Brit Banks for the locations of the various events and the LA Fairgrounds, while free runes to the LA Fairgrounds are available at the Veritas Inn vendors, 2nd house SE of Luna's East Gate, and home of the "LA Informer" shard newspaper.

We hope that players from all shards will attend our event! Our new dunk tank will take center stage at noon USC that day, but here is the full list of events and their coordinators below. If anyone would like to volunteer to help staff the event that day, provide further prizes and door prizes, take an event to sponsor off my hands(!), or add a booth from you and/or your guild at the fairgrounds or elsewhere, please contact El of LA, Tamais, or Basara in-game on LA, or here at Stratics!
