JOCO VIRTUAL CRUISE 2021
A worldwide pandemic may have prevented the physical sailing of JoCo Cruise 2021 from happening, but the spirit of JoCo Cruise SHALL NOT BE DENIED OR CONTAINED*. As such, we at The Home Office have uploaded our collective consciousness to the cloud**, and JoCo Cruise is going to ride the ones and zeros as JoCo Virtual Cruise 2021.
* * * THE BULLET POINTS * * *
- SATURDAY, APRIL 10 – WEDNESDAY, APRIL 14, 2021
- Official featured events each evening
- Other official events, hangouts, Shadow Cruise events and gaming all day Saturday and Sunday
- 100% FREE for anyone and everyone to attend! (Well, you know…“attend.”)
We’ve set up the official JoCo Virtual Cruise Discord server, which will act as our main moderated community space during the event, and it’s ALREADY UP AND RUNNING! (If you haven’t used Discord before, it’s a free, dedicated social space for both text and voice discussions that’s accessible via any web browser, or via its own dedicated app.) To join the JoCo Virtual Cruise Discord server, follow this hyperlink: https://discord.gg/dVT3E3raAc. (It will prompt you to create a Discord account if you don’t have one.) The JoCo Cruise Forums also stand at the ready for all of your planning and collective dreaming needs.
Lots and lots and lots more information (including a more detailed schedule, details for submitting Shadow Cruise events, and much more) coming Soon™. (Early-ish Jan. 2021?) We know many of you will have questions, and we hope/expect our next “big info dump” will answer most of them. If you’re not on the JoCo Cruise Mailing List yet, now’s a great time to join and get the latest info on our Virtual Cruise as soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, everyone please have a fantastic and safe holiday season.

** it’s surprisingly cold in here, and our consciousnesses are now vulnerable to solar flare activity. But there’s free pizza and snickerdoodles, so all told it’s been well worth abandoning our corporeal forms.
