    Hello Fellow EMCers. I am very happy to announce that One week from today I will be hosting a GREAT grand opening for my new store.

    Where: SMP7: Lot 15422
    When: Saturday May 12, High Noon - 12:00pm Central Standard Time.
    Who is welcome: EVERYONE

    Event Agenda

    At 12:00pm (CST) - exactly- My residence will open to the public.

    The first event will start immediately. Hidden on the lot will be 5 containers ([access] everyone) holding one diamond each. There will also be 5 false containers that will contain one dirt. There will be one container holding an enchanted pick (Unbreaking III, Efficiency III). Each chest is first come first serve. The chests can be found anywhere on the lot. 11 containers total to be found.

    At 12:15pm (CST) tickets will be sold for a Raffle that will be held in the store. Tickets to the raffle will cost 1r. One ticket per person (even if you buy 10 tickets your name is entered once)- Everyone will have the exact same chance at winning a prize.

    At 12:20pm (CST) (or when everyone who wants a raffle ticket has one) an on site Auction will be held in the store area for enchanted items.

  4. Or, for those who don't like clicking on links, there is this.
    CST = GMT - 5
    PST = GMT - 7
    So whatever time it is, CST is 2 hours ahead of PST.

  5. What he said. :p

    Thanks, I just figured the clock was easier since I would probably get that question more than once for several time zones. I wish MC had an in game clock/server time like wow! Made coordinating easier if you could talk in game time to people all over the world :)

  7. I know. I think everyone should just ignore the sun, and only go to sleep when I do, and play minecraft when I do. That way I get to interact with other people who might otherwise be sleeping...
    Oh, and I'll try to make it. Sounds fun :)
