Celebrating 1 Year of Virtual SSAGO: 5 days of over 30 activities

Oliver Bills (Southampton SSAGO)

Wednesday 17th of March 2021

On this day last year, Virtual SSAGO was born! SSAGO set up the National SSAGO Discord Server (SSAGO Chat) to bring everyone together virtually where we couldn't meet physically. For the next 5 days, we celebrate all that Virtual SSAGO has become since then!

On this day last year, Virtual SSAGO was born! SSAGO set up the National SSAGO Discord Server (SSAGO Chat) to bring everyone together virtually where we couldn't meet physically.

Before long, this saw rise to events being run by SSAGO for SSAGO and the formation of various SSAGO projects to see everyone through what has been an incredibly challenging year. We saw SSAGO keep each other fit and healthy through Get Active, learn new things and share them with each other through Badges at Home or build their dreams in the SSAGO Minecraft.

We've seen people share their hobbies and interests with each other, from arts and crafts and photography to baking and cooking to video and board games. We've seen people combine their efforts to create great things, like the SSAGO Podcast or the SSAGO Musical. We've seen people work to run amazing events for other SSAGoers from quizzes, Skribbl, GeoGuessr and Golf to larger events including the Easter Egg Hunt (due to return this year!), Virtual Witan, Build-a-Rally, Scot North, Step into Christmas and most recently Green Rally Yellow Rally!

What a year it has been!
