GREAT NEWS ABOUT MOONRIDGE ZOO!!! - alyburns' (aka sideburns & alyjude) Hiding Place

I have BIG news regarding our beloved zoo, guys! As you may remember, everyone at The Big Bear Alpine Zoo have been waiting for over a year for the San Bernadino Board of Supervisors to approve the new zoo - and in April, they finally did it!!!


The Office Manager for the Zoo believes they'll actually break ground and begin the excavation process this year, with construction continuing through 2015. She further shared with me there's a good chance the new Zoo will have its grand opening by either summer or early fall of 2016 and yes, she also said it would be great to tie in the 20th anniversary of The Sentinel's first episode with the Grand Opening!!

Reminder: The Sentinel premiered on March 20, 1996, hence 2016 will mark the 20th anniversary of our beloved show.

So start saving now, guys. Save for the biggest, greatest Auction in our history (we'll run it two months prior to whatever opening date we're eventually given), and for, perhaps, that dream trip to California in 2016 to join in the Grand Opening festivities?

Please pass this one to all our TS senfen as well as any other fandoms who have joined us over the years in the auction and in the love and care of what will be, for us, the Moonridge Zoo! :)

It would be lovely to see you again - I'm pretty sure that a place to doss down won't be an issue - half of the fandom seems to live in SoCal. *g*

I know, amazing, isn't it?

Maybe we could work out a "20th Anniversary" evening the night before or something? I know you're working on the anniversary, so something that occurs close to the actual TS premiere date and then a celebration the weekend (I'm assuming it would be on a weekend) of the opening? Oh, the many possibilities!!!

If I put away $20 a month every month till then maybe I could go... at least I would be able to help with the auction. I can't wait!!!! Already have two stories in the works.
