The server is now closed for this year. I think it was the best year yet, great people online and great creations. People seemed to really enjoy themselves, and when there were little misunderstandings, they were usually settled fast enough. And the creativity this year! Wow. It will be very tough to judge. Every building that is on the server, is automatically in the competition. Results were announced during the Skerries Soundwaves Minecraft and Cookery Competitions and Exhibitions on Sunday 21 Sep 2014 in Skerries Community Centre, and the winners were:

The Last Day on the Server
Lots were online on Friday afternoon, and while some couldn’t come to the online party at half seven, just before the server closed around eight, due to Scouts and Athletics and other such worthwhile and fun things, we met most in the afternoon & took pictures with them then. Here are a few screenshots from yesterday afternoon and from the party.
And as for the party itself… there was a record number of people on, and I hope you can see from the short video of the last minutes that it was… fun!!!
Next up is the huge event that is the Skerries Soundwaves Lego Minecraft and Cookery Competitions and Exhibitions, Skerries Community Centre, Sunday (tomorrow from when I’m writing this) from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., which will also say the second and following rounds, up to the final, of the 2014 Minecraft Build Off – and the winners of our online competition will be announced as well!
Round One took place last Saturday during the kick-off party. All who made it to Round Two are asked to report to the Minecraft area by three o’clock; any slots unfilled by then will be filled by players on the day (after a short first round for them, too, to be fair).
Watch this space for updates!
