Can you believe it?! We are 10 years old! Double digits! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. When I joined this server in 2013, I had no idea how profound of an impact it would have in my life. I am so grateful to our community. You are all so welcoming, creative, determined, and fun! As far as I'm concerned, The Sandlot is my second family. To celebrate such a monumental occasion, we are going to have many special and fun things to do over the next month! Please continue reading to find out what's coming up, and be sure to leave a reply answering my final questions to you all at the end! Sandlot Merchandise! We have new merchandise available for purchase! Make sure to order soon to get your items shipped before Christmas! Hats, t-shirts, posters, and stickers, oh my! https://merch.sandlotminecraft.com Sandlot Fan Art Last month, we invited everyone to submit some fan art. We got quite a few entries! Thank you! We will be releasing a video that showcases everyone's submissions some time this month. Update! The video has been completed and is now ready for viewing! Please give a big thank you to @GrassPelt for creating the video, and thank you to all our participants! The History of The Sandlot @hamsrus1 wrote an amazing post about the history of The Sandlot and how far we have come over the last 10 years. Check it out! https://www.sandlotminecraft.com/threads/the-history-of-the-sandlot-–-happy-10th-anniversary.37009/ Lobby The lobby has been updated for December with a fun holiday theme and festive new fireworks from Pete the villager. We will be adding more to explore in the lobby just for this month, so make sure you check back for updates! Adventure The old Christmas Lobby area is open once again, and Christmas Tyree needs your help! Look for the warp sign to the Christmas Lobby near spawn, and check out the sights along the way! All you wizards might be asked to fend off evil monsters in the arena there at some point... There is another update coming to Adventure as well. More details will be revealed soon! Parkour We will be releasing a new, nostalgic course for Parkour. It should be a great trip down memory lane for those players who have been here a long time, and still a fun course to explore even if you are new here! Hard Survival We have a winter wonderland with all new biomes and terrain to explore in Hard Survival this month. Watch out for the snowmen, some of them have turned evil! Stick together and build something awesome while surviving the harsh elements. Good luck out there! Easy Survival We had a very close build competition for Easy spawn this month between @Floofin and @MCtwilight, and the winner's build will be built in the spawn area very soon! Thank you everyone for your entries in the contest! We will also be bringing back the Moderator Scavenger Hunt in Easy this month! If you missed out last time, or just want to get another set of moderator heads in Easy, be sure to check the spawn area often for instructions on the scavenger hunt! Happy hunting! The Return of 00JQ I don't know if you all noticed, but @00JQ is back! He told me that he was able to brute force the administrator password on our server, and that he is planning on doing something dastardly to The Sandlot! Oh no! He told me he would only leave us alone after he implemented his plan. I hope it's nothing too serious... A Look Back in Time @GrassPelt has created a beautiful video celebrating 10 years on The Sandlot. Everyone should watch this video! We want to hear from you! When did you join The Sandlot, and what does it mean to you? What is your favorite thing to do here and why?
