For Immediate Release

SL Combat Expo Scheduled for March 24-April 2, 2007

[Armory Island – February 5, 2007] Armory Island is proud to announce the Inaugural SL Weapons Expo to be held on Armory Island from Saturday March 24 to Monday, April 2, 2007. The first three days will include workshops and round table discussions on combat related issues within Second Life. Weapons vendors will also be there to explain their products to the general SL public, and make new product and product upgrade announcements.

Apollo Case, owner of Armory Island said, “Formalized combat and combat role play is growing rapidly within Second Life with more than fifteen sims dedicated to these activities. During the Expo, attendees can find out more about formalized SL combat and, we will examine such issues as weapons compatibility, combat strategies, and dealing with griefers and lag.”

There will be stands from different weapons makers including those who retail at Armory Island, and owners of combat sims will also be invited to participate.

Apollo Case said, “Armory Island is ideally placed to hold this activity. We have almost 50 weapons related vendors currently residing on the sim, and we have just opened up a combat sim called Armory Xtreme which is now open for public testing.” He added that the Expo is open to all the general public, and all weapons makers are invited, whether they currently have vendors on Armory Island or not.

As expected, we have limited amounts of stands, and they are taken by a first pay first serve basis. If there is more demand for certain stands, we will adjust the setup.-

Setup Rules:

Stands cannot have floating rotating signs, any other object above a stand that not is part of the built stand, or anything that makes a stand point out more than others. Stands must stay under prim limits, or objects will have to be returned. We encourage creative stands, but there is a line. We love America, so no flags or objects promoting Middle East countries that are hostile to Western interests or items that promote communism or fascism. Also no trademark violations. Armory Island Managers have control to remove things for your stand. All products setup in vendors must be combat related.

We recommend releasing special, or new products in the Weapons Expo. We also recommend attending your stand to answer customers, reporters, and other peoples questions.

If you would like to reserve a stand please IM William Dalgleish, or drop him a notecard if he does not respond in a 3 day period. Spots are limited, so please reserve your stand as soon as possible. Any questions, comments, or concerns IM William Dalgleish or Apollo Case.
