End of Season Award Nominations

SLSA+logo1It’s that semi-annual time of the year again and time to submit your nominations for Angel Award and Sportsperson Award for the season.

Angel Award

The Angel award is designed to recognize the person (male or female) that helped make this season a success, by contributing their time, effort, or simply their encouragement of surfers and staff, cheerfully and without seeking any recognition for themselves. They are the person that helped you and many others to have a fun season.

Nominations will Close at Midnight Tuesday, July 7th, at which time voting will take place in an anonymous poll here in this forum.

Sportsperson Award

The Sportsperson award recognizes the person that you feel displayed exemplary sportsmanship, displaying grace in victory or defeat, providing encouragement within and outside their own team, or making a sacrifice to assist another to the detriment of their own place. They are this season’s ‘good sport’.

Nominations will Close at Midnight on Tuesday, July 7th, at which time voting will take place in an anonymous poll here in this forum.

 

Details for the ceremony are still being worked out…  details to come.

Candidates for SLSA Board of Directors

SLSA+logo1Two people have generously offered their time and energy to the SLSA to be on the Board of Directors. Which is awesome since there are two seats opening up. Elections to make it official will be held on September 1st at Solace Dreams. A list of eligible voters will be posted to the SLSA Forums soon.  Our two candidates are Lanky Silvercloud and Daphne Yardley-Wayward. Their introductions were posted to the SLSA forum yesterday and are reprinted below:

Lanky Silvercloud

I am more than willing to help in any way I can ,I know my time zone difference is a hindrance but I’m sure it could be a benefit as well ,me being on when some others aren’t.

If elected I am more than willing to serve the full term of the position.

I started as a member of Reef Riders team and am now part of the Tai Chi surf team.

I have been a part of the SL surf community since almost my first day on SL thanks to a beach bum called Rayzza who took me under his wing and taught me a few things and since then have been hooked, I love helping newcomers learn to surf and have seen a few become amazing surfers.

My vision for the SLSA is I guess a lot like most of us..to see it as a friendly surfing community with different and varied comps but also I think it would be great to hold other events as well, like formal balls, or beach parties so that members and their friends can get together and just get to know each other and talk about what their ideas are or complaints so it can give us an idea what we can do to make the SLSA the best it can be

regards
Lanky

————————————————————————————

Name: Daphne Yardley-Wayward
Team: Tsunami
Outside of Surfing: I cheer for SLCS Cheerleaders, I help run SLCS Airlines and I’m blocker for M.Inc.Riot Bitches of the Second Life Roller Derby Association.

My vision:
I think my vision for SLSA to expand it and make it more visible across grid. WIth the visibility, it can bring more sponsors to our competitions. Also organizing concerts with tribute bands and having parties will help our brand grow and attract more people that never have surf before.

I commit to serve a 6 month term.

Thank you so much Lanky and Daphne!

SLSA+logo1Say that three times fast.

At the end of the season members of the SLSA get together to celebrate the season and honor people who have gone the extra mile. Nominate the people you feel most deserving of the following awards. Click on the link to go to the SLSA forum post where you can add (or second) your nomination.

Hall of Fame

The SLSA Hall of Fame, is a fun way to acknowledge outstanding sustained excellence and contribution to the sport of Surfing in Secondlife. It was originally created as a way to salute not only those people that have shown excellence in their surfing skill over a sustained period, but also to those that contribute in a significant way to the facilitation, organization, development and enjoyment of Surfing as a positive and character building experience in Secondlife.

Each Season the top two placing surfers for the season overall are inducted, the Season Champion and Runner-up, are added as a tribute to their sustained participation and their performance across the length and breadth of the waves, boards and conditions that were a part of the season.

Nominations are due by Tuesday June 17th at Midnight SL time.

Angel Award

The Angel award is designed to recognize the person (male or female) that helped make this season a success, by contributing their time, effort, or simply their encouragement of surfers and staff, cheerfully and without seeking any recognition for themselves.

SLSA+logo1The SLSA Season End Celebration and Awards Ceremony will be held on Saturday, Decmber 15th at 11 amSLT.

Not only are the season’s top surfers honored, new Hall of Fame inductees are announced as well. The season’s top two surfers automatically become part of the Hall of Fame, but there is an additional Hall of Fame inductee given to a member of the SL surfing community at large “for contributions to surfing which are pivotal and of great value to the entire surfing community over a prolonged number of years.” This person does not have to be a member of the SLSA. For  more information about this award and how to nominate someone visit the SLSA Forum topic for the SLSA Hall of Fame.

Two other awards are given out, that are nominated by members of the SL surfing community: the Angel Award and the Sportsperson award. For someone to receive these awards, they must be nominated and second received.

The Angel Award “is designed to recognise the person (male or female) that helped make this season a success, by contributing their time, effort, or simply their encouragement of surfers and staff, cheerfully and without seeking any recognition for themselves. They are the person that helped you and many others to have a fun season.” To read about this award and nominate someone go to the Angel Award topic on the SLSA Forum.

“The Sportsperson Award recognises the person that you feel displayed exemplary sportsmanship, displaying grace in victory or defeat, providing encouragement within and outside their own team, or making a sacrifice to assist another to the detriment of their own place. They are this season’s ‘good sport’.” Again go to the Sportsperson Award topic on the SLSA forum for information and to nominate the person you feel best exemplifies sportspersonship in the SLSA.

Nominations for all three will be accepted up to midnight on Tuesday, December 11th. That deadline is tomorrow, so get in there and make your nominations ASAP!

IMPORTANT – SLSA Board of Directors Nominations/Elections

(I don’t normally like to put two posts up in one day, but this is important and time-sensitive)

The deadline to submit nominations for a seat of the Second Life Surfing Association (SLSA) Board of Directors has come and went. We received a message today that NO nomination have been submitted. The deadline to submit yourself for consideration has been extended to MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. Folks/family/friends, if we do not have a full  5 member Board of Directors, our beloved competitions will be suspended (starting the next series set for December) and possibly cease altogether.

Do not think you are too new or too inexperienced to be on the Board. You are not! All it takes is a love of SL surfing and a desire to have a successful organization and competitions.

In short, to be eligible for a seat on the Board, you only have to be a current member of the SLSA and an eligible voter. To be an eligible voter, you have to have surfed in one of the last 6 events, or, be a member of the SLSA Hall of Fame, or, an appointed officer or director in one of the last 3 competitions. The fine print can be found on the SLSA Website. Look at sections 2.1 and 2.2.

To submit yourself to be nominated for one of the 3 open seats, send a notecard in-world to all the current directors (Sally LaSalle, Bobbi, Laval, Melian Catronis, Xander Datura,  and Imzadi Amaterasu) with the following information: your name, your willingness and ability to serve a full term, any affiliations of team, product or sim ownership, and a paragraph or two outlining your background, and your vision for the SLSA. The original post with the call for nominations is on the SLSA forum.

Please help keep the SLSA alive!
