MinerBumping Party in Halaima this Sunday

The New Order of Highsec will be holding a celebration in Halaima this Sunday to commemorate the two month anniversary of the MinerBumping blog. Can you believe it's only been two months? Yes, I know, it's confusing because we just celebrated the three month anniversary of the New Order and the declaration of the Code, which took place about a month and a half before the founding of this website. That just means more cake and ice cream for everybody!

So here's the deal:

WHEN: Sunday, October 7th at 21:00 EVEtime (5:00pm Eastern)
WHERE: Halaima ice field

Who's invited? Everybody. If you're reading this, that means you and all your friends. Bring your bumping ships. You can check out this post if you want, or just fit out a stabber with a 10mn MWD. If you can't fly a stabber, bring your fastest cruiser with a MWD. If you want to be original, bring a bumping Machariel or something. I would love to see how many bumpers we can pack into the ice field at once. All who are able are encouraged to attend.

If you've never bumped before, or would like to hone your skills, this is a great opportunity for you to come and learn the art in a fun, relaxed environment. The local miners won't mind. Come on down and have some fun bumping them until they pay you for a mining fee.

Even the enemies of the New Order are welcome to drop in. Think of this as Christmas in 1914. Try your hand at bumping some miners and see what it's like to be part of the New Order, even if only for a little while.

Show up early for a little bump and greet. I'll probably set up a container that we can all orbit around and take a group photo. After the party begins, I will deliver a short speech and we'll have some fun helping miners learn the Code. After awhile, we may all fly together to another New Order system to give the miners there a surprise visit.

In addition to this post, I will be sending out a mass EVEmail to all the shareholders to notify them of this event. How many people will show up? Who knows? This party is the first of its kind. Maybe Halaima will be packed, or maybe I'll be the only person there, just bumping miners solo like I often do. In any event, the birthplace of the New Halaima Code of Conduct will experience the joy of the New Order to some degree.

I hope to see you there! If you can't make it, perhaps there will be another event that accommodates your timezone in the future.


  1. Oh goody! This doesn't conflict with work this time!

  2. I have not previously disclosed my support of the glorious New Order, but I'd like to think of this Sunday as my coming out party, in addition to being the two-month anniversary of the website. Long Live James 315.

    P.S. as a month-old character focused on Gallente I can only fit a Vexor. It is my sincerest hope that this meets the expectations of our Dear Leader.

  3. Ill be there!

  4. Damn, I'll be driving from Florida to Texas that day... Otherwise I would've brought out my bumping Charon.

  5. I'll definitely be making it to this party, the trek from Gallente Highsec isn't as bad as I first thought.

    1. Bill, I'm also in Gallente Highsec (Verge Vendor). I'll send you an evemail and tag along if you don't mind.
