Writer’s Block Party

Do you read or write? Either way, you might be interested in the next HazzardNet community chat for writers, happening this Saturday, September 24 at 7:00 p.m. Eastern. While this is primarily about fanfiction as it appears on HazzardNet, it’s an open, casual chat and anything about writing or enjoying stories is likely to come up.

Over the years, some of HNet’s fanfic writers have gone on to win writing awards and have work published. Writing Dukes of Hazzard stories may not be a road to riches, but many of our members have honed their skills by posting fanfiction here. The feedback and encouragement that comes from having a good writing community can make a difference for aspiring authors.

Be a part of that community and hang out with us this Saturday! Use your HazzardNet Forums login and password to enter the chat. See you there!

Got Something to Chew Over?

Do you have thoughts about HazzardNet? Got ideas, suggestions, or simply too much time on your hands? Then why not join a couple of our staff members in a Town Hall Chat? 

We’re having a town hall meeting on Saturday Sept 10th, at 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. This is a very informal meeting of the minds (or mindless) where we will discuss current HazzardNet projects, items from the suggestion box, and whatever else is on our bucket list.

We’ll be in the flash chatroom, “Boar’s Nest”.  Anybody interested is welcome to attend. It’s your chance to see HazzardNet administration behind the scenes. You can weigh in on the topics at hand, offer your insights, or merely watch us bicker over petty details.  Sign in using your usual HazzardNet Forums ID and password.  See ya there!

Congrats to our Fan of the Month!

Our Fan of the Month for September 2011 is a real woman of mystery, as you can tell by her photo with Catherine Bach!  “Redneck girl 01”  joined us in March of 2008.  While she’s outgoing and friendly with everyone on HazzardNet, she’s a little shy about sharing her face with the world! 

Redneck girl 01 is a long-time participant on our Forums and her recognition as Fan of the Month is overdue.  She clinched the title after supplying us a personal account of Hazzard Homecoming in our Forums.  For those of you who did not get to attend Hazzard Homecoming, Redneck girl 01’s reporting will give you an honest overview of what it was like. 

She also included a link to her Facebook (faceless-book?) page which includes some great photos of the event, such as the one below:

This General Lee had a plush “Flash” upon the roof.  The stuffed animal has been autographed by many cast members of The Dukes of Hazzard. Redneck girl 01 has many more photos of John, Cathy, Jimmie, Rick, Sonny, and Ben, and several photos of the Hazzard Homecoming grounds and atmosphere. 

By immersing herself in the event and taking the time to provide us with all the details, she’s proven herself to be a dedicated Dukes of Hazzard fan.  We appreciate the time she spent to share her experience with all of us, and we look forward to more of Redneck girl 01’s adventures in the future.  Join us in congratulating her!

HazzardNet Holiday Hullabaloo!

As has become tradition around here, HazzardNet will be hosting an online Christmas party chat again this year! Only this time, we’re doubling our pleasure and doubling our fun with two parties (hey, give the people what they want, right? Right!)

Our first party will be held tomorrow in the Boar’s Nest chat room starting at 3pm EST and going until midnight. Yes, that seems early, but we’re considering our international audience and the different time zones everyone’s in. Which means there should be plenty of variety in the comings and goings of HNet regulars through the evening.

For those who can’t make the party tomorrow, our second shindig will be held on Saturday, December 18th at the same time (3pm EST to midnight).

Be aware y’all that we have a new chat application to use, called Flash Chat, which is accessible via the Forums (the link is at the top of the page). Your login for the chat is your forums login. Remember to click on “Flash Chat” and not the plain “chat” link.  If you go to the plain chat link you’ll either not be able to get in (as has been the case with some users) or you’re gonna find a dark and quiet room. And you don’t wanna be in a dark and quiet room, you wanna be where the fun is!

You can check out more about the 2010 Christmas Party and other holiday hubbub in our forums!

See ya there!
