SAN Network Does Easter
By SAN Network • Published 25th March 2018

 
Spring is here, lambs are bouncing around the fields and there's the feel of new beginnings all around San Andreas. From a new batch of Red County Fire Department graduates to new talent in the form of Anthony Morgan, spring is a time to start over and try something you perhaps haven't before!

SAN Network, too, are trying new things including our "Giving Something Back Initiative" and the return of an old face... Kristian Keegan as Chief Operating Officer.

As spring is a time for celebration, it's also a time for fun - and fun is what we shall provide! As always, SANN are proud to present our event offerings for the season.



Easter Egg Hunt
An annual tradition for locals is the ever popular Easter Egg Hunt. Although previously hosted by the San Andreas State Police's Public Affairs Division, this year it is the turn of SAN Network. 

We've dressed Lydia and Chandler in some bunny ears and set them out with a basket of eggs to be hidden - but this year, we're going bigger than ever!

This Easter, eggs have been hidden around Red County, Bone County AND newly opened town, Rockshore. As in previous years, below are a list of hints as to their locations. You'll need a camera with you to show us where they are ((screenshot them - your name MUST be in the image, whether in the chat or your character in the image)) and when you've found all 20, fill in the below form, along with your images and drop it off at any SAN Network HQ or email [email protected] ((forum PM Beth - please use the subject "SAN Network Does Easter")).

There'll be a cash prize of $250,000 for the first person to find them all as well as three people chosen at random, each receiving $100,000You have until Sunday 1st April to submit your answers.

Hints
1. All of this searching is driving me crazy!
2. Can you give me some information as to the whereabouts of these eggs?

4. You're barred from stealing our eggs!
5. Let's dine on all of these eggs.
6. Can you repair a broken egg?

11. I'm feeling a little tipsy...
12. It must be hungry work, monitoring the counties border bridges!

14. Even eggs need to be squeaky clean!
15. Only the finest, most "De Luxe" eggs were used in this hunt.

Launching the "Giving Something Back" Initiative
By Lydia Ashworth • Published 14th March 2018

 
SAN Network, for a long time, have been a generally welcomed face in the community. From participation in events to the support of articles, nothing SAN Network do would function correctly without the support of the people of San Andreas. 

With that thought in mind, it's time to give something back and put our resources to good use. Starting with the purchase of Rockshore Youth Park Ice Cream Shop, SAN Network will be taking on the challenge to bring improvements to the local communities of Red, Bone and Flint County. In a partnership with Elite Trucking, SANN will be giving the underprivileged the chance to significantly improve their surroundings. Whether that be through upgrades to housing, amenities or simply the provision of equipment.

SAN Network plan to donate resources to the value of $1,000,000 to the most deserving candidates, with help from Elite Trucking who will carry out the work required.

((In short, if you have a faction that you think meets the above criteria this is for you. Although upgrades will be fully RP'ed by Elite Trucking, mapping is unfortunately not provided with this. You will instead receive the full $1,000,000 to use as you wish. The only condition is that you must show proof of your factions' existence through the provision of your faction topic in the application. New factions will be considered, including those who may make a new faction simply to take part!))

If you're from a group or community of people that could benefit from this scheme, simply fill in the below form and email it to [email protected] ((Forum PM Beth)) or alternatively collect a paper copy from any SAN Network Office and hand it in at the front desk ((either way, forum PM me)).

Applications will be open until Friday 13th April.

Although this is SAN Network's main initiative, this is just the start. As an organisation we plan to contribute more to the locality in the coming months.

Best of luck!

Dillimore Sheriff's Office Arson
By Pippa Ashworth • Published 4th March 2018

 
 
In what shocked many, Dillimore Sheriff's Office was ablaze this evening, 4th March. With the roads surrounding the area closed off promptly, members of the Red County Fire Department fought tirelessly to ensure the blaze was put out without endangering any of the working Deputies.

Although the exact source of the fire is, at this moment, unknown, it's believed that the fire was started intentionally and any witnesses are urged to contact 911 with any information they can provide. In the meantime, Fire Investigators will be conducting a full investigation into the cause of the blaze.

Deputy Mark Jonesy stated: "We believe it's an arson. Although we cannot disclose any more information as it's an ongoing investigation." whilst Deputy Pierre Dubois said "I'm just worried that there are people trapped inside."

Whilst everyone was accounted for, Lieutenant Anthony Roberts was taken to hospital following smoke inhalation. San Andreas News Network wish him the very best.

To further the earlier statement, if you have any information as to what happened please call 911 and dial for the Sheriff's Office.


Update, 5th March 2018
In the past few minutes, it's been revealed that the San Andreas Investigation Bureau have major leads into the person or people responsible for the fire. Their public relations division have released the following statement, exclusive to SAN Network.
 

We can now reveal that two arrests have been made in relation to yesterdays fire. Investigations are still ongoing and we have multiple leads that we're following, however we are working closely with San Andreas County Sheriff's Office to ensure our investigation is concluded and the culprit apprehended within the next few days.

If you have any information that may help us, please contact the San Andreas Investigation Bureau or San Andreas County Sheriff's Office on 911.
