Club One A Bust?

Earlier I had posted about my discovery of Club One Island.  That post is here. I was excited because I love the idea of using the virtual worlds to inspire us to live healthier and happier lives.  The concept here definitely has that potential.

They had their grand opening in the first week of January.  I popped in and spent about four hours jumping to earn credits against any classes.  Since then I have been waiting patiently for classes to show up.  It has been pretty quiet at the Club One Island home front.  I decided to do a few checks.

I started by taking a peek at their events calendar on their website (see here).  There has been nothing since the opening week.  Not one class.  I am seriously bummed and frustrated.  I was told that there would be classes this month.  I know that I have a tight schedule, but there are days that I can catch a class that I deem worth while.

My disappointment grew and my heart sank as I teleported to their set of four islands.  None having a very high traffic that I could find as I ran about to explore.  There has been minimal activity.  It was like a ghost town.  Not even the crickets remained.

They have a great concept and a huge investment in this project.  It saddens me that there is nothing going on.  The two employees that I spoke with have not been online in a bit of time.  One not since that first week and the other since last week.  Let’s hope they are just delayed in their project.

For now, I will keep an eye out with hopes something will start up.  At the very least, I hope they send a message to let us know what is going on with them.  I have sent the group owner’s a request for when events will start.  Hopefully, that will get us some information and this party train can get started.

Just took a seat in the empty sim, awed at its beauty and clean builds and sad that nothing is happening with it.

Discovery of Club One

I have to admit this is not a new discovery.  I found out about Club One Island about four weeks ago.  I was busy updating my facebook page with some of my mindless drivel, whining and crazy thoughts and one of the ads in the side bar was for Club One Island.  Now normally I ignore those ads, but it had a virtual world type look to it and I couldn’t resist.  I had to check it out.

Turns out Club One Island exists within the virtual world of Second Life (R) and also on the internet at http://www.cluboneisland.com/ .  I jumped into world to check it out and joined up.  They have different programs at varying rates.  The biggest complaint around the virtualosphere is the cost of their program.

Well wouldn’t you know it, they sponsored a jumping fest yesterday, which gave the participants discounts off of the program for each hour of virtual jumping.  So I jumped for discounts, dragged Mr. IEVL for some jumping fun and made two new friends and met quite a few people.

I was cot jumping while Mr. IEVL took to jumping on the bed.  Others were jumping on pogo sticks and trampolines.  After a bit of time one of the developers for Club One Island asked Mr. IEVL if she could adjust his ball (snickers).  She placed an additional ball on the bed so we could jump together.  Mr. IEVL looks at me and asks, “Did she just ask if she can adjust my balls?”.   ZOMG!!!  I was dying of laughter.  We spent the rest of the night jumping in bed together.  (AHAHAHA!)

Now mind you, Club One Island is a PG sim, therefore, that was our bit of PG related porn.  Badaboom badabang!  Below is some evidence of our glorious adventure in bed jumping and my first ever animated gif creation.  Tah Dah!
