The beautiful setting and great music create just the right setting for you to wear your holiday best and dance the night away, along with your friends and your VKC Dogs.

Get out your dancing shoes. Put on your finery. Invite a friend or two. Bring your favorite VKC Dog. The social committee of the Virtual Kennel Club is hosting the first VKC Christmas Formal in the Courtyard at Turing Isle!

The fun begins at 3 o'clock in the SL afternoon (15:00 SLT) on Friday, December 16, 2011. Leading the festivities will be Colt Arun, a fine entertainer who pleased the VKC crowds at the VKC Halloween Party. Colt specializes in songs that range from country to old rock to Southern rock. Spinning the tunes will be DJs Irish Evermore and Zizi (Elora Eternal). 

The VKC Christmas Formal promises to be a wonderful event in the true VKC style! Join us for fun, live music, and the appearance of a special guest!

VKC Christmas Formal Dance
Friday, 16 December 2011
Starting at 3 o'clock in the SL afternoon (15:00 SLT)
In the Courtyard at Turing Isle

Update 16 December

The VKC Christmas Formal was a huge success! People came early and stayed late. The gowns on the ladies were gorgeous and the gents were decked out in their holiday finery. Couples whirled and glided about the dance floor so fluidly it was as though on ice. Everyone danced and had a great time.

Keiichi Ichtama and Blu Sparkle, well mostly Keiichi, decorated the Courtyard in a grand style befitting a holiday formal. It was elegant and festive without upstaging the dancers. The eggnog was spiked, but not too much. The hors d'oeuvres were exquisite. All-in-all, it was a night that will be remembered, for all the right reasons.

About midway through the evening, the special guest, or I should say guests, arrived. Four young polar bear cubs came tumbling down the steps as they emerged from the LogSpark Store. The exclamations of delight echoed across the courtyard. Indeed, they echoed all across SL as people called their friends to come see the little cuties and exchanged comments in the VKC group.

On Saturday at noon, SLT, the Polar Bear Cubs will be released in all the VKC Dog Parks along with the latest VKC Dog, the Great Danes. That's right, I said "Danes." There are two — a fawn and a harlequin.
