Mari's Mailbag - Second Life Surfing Competitions



If you are a new surfer, attending Second Life surfing competitions is an excellent way to meet fellow surfers and see first hand how competitions are performed. You will absolutely love watching the surfers compete and the party atmosphere in the stands. The SLSurfing Association competitions start 11 AM SLT and usually last to around 3 PM SLT, sometimes later depending on the number of surfers and different variables. The SLSA competition dates can be seen at the SL Surfing Association website (http://www.surfslsa.com/) where you can also sign up to become a member of this exciting organization.  Once signed up and registered, you can then compete at SLSA events on a team or independently. There are other competitions that you can take part in, as well. The Australian Surfing Association was created to be a sister group to SLSA and Desne Aabye is the currrent director for that organization.  There's also Vibrations Surf Alliance (VSA) run by VW Sands and the Brazilian Surfing Association (ABSSL) run by Leogarto Burt.  SurfWatch keeps a schedule of all the various competitions in one convenient location on the 2009 Surf Calendar.  One thing for sure is, you need to come out and see them ...it's a great time.

Second Life Surfing Association Elects 3 New Directors

The Second Life Surfing Association (SLSA) just announced the results of the election held December 1, 2009, to fill 3 open Director seats.  The new Directors are:

Sally LaSalle - 31
Ashleigh Dickins - 20
Giavannamarie Melody - 17

Followed by:

Marianna Monentes - 15
Syx Toshi and Kimmy Jigsaw - 14

A total of 37 eligible members voted with a total of 111 votes cast.  Two votes were disqualified due to only having two nominees selected.  One vote was disqualified as it was submitted after the time deadline of midnight SLT.  The election committee was comprised of SLSA Directors WickedV Carver, Abel Halderman and Desirae Beaumont in addition to SLSA advisors, VW Sands and Tauri Tigerpaw.

The new Board takes effect immediately.  Sally LaSalle, a current Director, remains for another 6 month term.  Ashleigh Dickens, a former Director, returns for another 6 month term.  Giavannamarie Melody is elected for a 6 month term.  WickedV Carver steps down and Bonheur Chenaux's vacant seat is filled. 

The next election is scheduled for March 1, 2010, when the seats for Abel Halderman and Desirae Beaumont will be up for election.

Second Life Surfing Association (SLSA) Announces Waiver Change

The SLSA has announced a change in the waiver required to be accepted at competition registration by competitors in this final SLSA competition of Season 2, 2009.  Originally, the waiver notified competitors that, by registering for the competition, they agree to allow their Instant Messages (IMs) with event officers to be seen by other event officials in deciding disciplinary procedures.  This was required because Second Life Terms of Service prohibit the sharing of private chats without the permission of all the parties involved.  In response to a complaint from a competitive surfer on the broadness of the waiver, the SLSA Board has refined the waiver to refer specifically to IMs that occur during the competition:

"By registering for this competition you hereby agree to abide by the SLSA code of conduct and you give your permission to allow your IMs with event officers that only occur during the competition to be seen only by other event officers who may need to decide on protests, appeals or tribunals."

SLSA Hands Down Second DA in as many Seasons

by Rhett McMahn, Special Correspondent


For a second time in two seasons, the SLSA has had to discipline their own. According to the SLSA Forum website (http://surfslsa.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=824&hilit=disciplinary): "A committee composed of the event day officials for the Analog Surf Perfect Waves HoF Challenge held on November 14th was convened to hear multiple complaints against Kristoffer Juneau."

Juneau was sited with several charges including: "(Juneau) knowingly interfered with official SLSA equipment on the competition sim, displayed verbal abuse to the Security Officer including contempt, derision, disrespect, argumentation and insult."

The posting stated that the Committee voted unanimously to disqualify Juneau from the Archipelago competition and that the Head Judge of that competition would recalculate the event's final standings. Due to the severity of the incident the committee also deferred decision to the SLSA Board of Directors that Juneau be suspended from the SLSA for a period of between 6 to 12 months.

The Board voted unanimously that Kristoffer Juneau be suspended from the SLSA for a period of 12 months. The posting was specific to the parts of said action. "This will entail removal from the group and the forum, all associated rights, and exclusion from event and spectator sims for the duration of the suspension."

In the posting the SLSA also stated "The Board reminds all competitors and visitors to surfing competitions, that manipulation in any form of any equipment on the competition sim (other than by designated event staff in the course of their responsibilities) is strictly forbidden in order to ensure a fair event where no competitor is disadvantaged either deliberately or accidentally."
