If you’re not in, you can’t win!
To be part of the 2017 Soundwaves Minecraft Project, first of all you’ll need a ticket. Where? How? Just follow this link! Or go directly to https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/skerries-soundwaves-minecraft-2017-tickets-37430542761. The server is open from Wed 20 Sep 2017 to Fri 22 Sep, 3 p.m. to 8 p.m each day, and then on Sat 23 Sep 2017, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Party on Sunday, 4.30 p.m. to 5.30 p.m., in the Old School!
To be in the competition, you simply have to protect your residence and sign up here:
The categories are:
A. Skerries (could be a recreation of the mills, a specific shop, the tourist office, a school, the Martello tower…)
There will be 3 age groups, based on your class / year in school.
B. Fantasy Builds (could be a turtle castle, a cinema, a swimming pool, an alien spaceship – anything that doesn’t exist in Skerries of 2016)
There will be 3 age groups, based on your class / year in school, same as for Category A, Skerries.
In more detail:
- Be part of the Soundwaves Minecraft Project (see here how), and create a building or two. Make sure you protect your creations! How? See your ticket or here.
- In Minecraft, put a sign in front of your creation(s) with its name and the category / categories you are entering.
You can have up to two creations, but no more than one in each category.
- The server will close on Saturday 23 Sep, at 6 p.m. The judging will take place between then and the Wrap Party.
- Come to the Old School, Room 1 (just the other side of the Little Theatre, same building) on Sunday, 24 September, for the Minecraft Wrap Party (4.30 to 5.30 p.m., entrance included in your server pass and open to those on the server plus a parent only).
- Winners will be announced at the party, at about 5.15 p.m.!
If you can’t come in person, please send us an email by Sat 3 p.m. so we know and can make alternative arrangements.
- Any difficulties, mail us, we’ll help if we can at all! firstname.lastname@example.org.
And the prizes are…
…not the most important aspect, we think! It’s really about the honour of having won one of the Skerries Minecraft Competition prizes! Plus if you come to the Minecraft party on Sun 24 September, and are in the competition, you will get a small (but exclusive) fridge magnet each!
