Nuala Maracas from Relay for Life of Second Life who sponsor our science fiction events gave a small speech.

” Hi everyone …..this is a great award event. First time for me here 🙂
Thank you to all the organizers and participants of the convention! Your work and dedication is greatly appreciated. The Relay For Life of Second Life is going to be raising it’s $3,000,000 US Dollar this year…. . Yes ..that is 3 MILLION US. And Sci Fi Convention is such a big part of that!

I have gotten over every year since it started and have watched it grow bigger and better each year
I have a bit of insider information that this year is going to be no exception.The plans they have in place are fantastic! I am excited already !
The funds you raise go to the American Cancer Society to provide Support services for cancer patients and caregivers, to fund research treatment.

For every $100 US raised ..YOU .. are providing 10 rides to and from treatment for a cancer patient who would not be able to get there… through Road To Recover Program
 For every $100 .. YOU .. raise..you are providing 1 night stay at a Hope Lodge for a cancer patient and their caregiver when they have to travel away from home for treatment
so every linden does count… .it adds up …it provides support and help to those who need it.
we have the 1-800-227-2345 24 hour help line available for anyone to call….. the cancer.org site.. and we have the American Cancer Society Sim here in SL … where you can also find information and talk to a specially trained RL volunteer at the ACS office who will take your call.

They know your call is from SL …so they understand what you mean when you say you are calling from the ACS sim 🙂 .. you just push the sigh and it will connect

Our Relay is highly regarded by the ACS and the other 5700 relays in the US.    We were ranked #14 out of 5700 in 2014 !

Other relays look at us …watch us…take our unique fun ideas to their rl relays ….but they can’t build a castle on their relay track….they can’t have space ships flying at their fundraising events

Thank you all again for everything you do ! Can’t wait to see you at the convention in 2017 !”

 

The RFL Theme 2017 is Passport to Hope & we are proud as always to have our Elemental Tour included.

Here We Go Again!

slsfc10_poster_1Yes, believe it or not, preparations have begun for the next SL Sci-Fi Con!

  • The dates will be March 24 to April 2, 2017.
  • The convention regions will be built around “The Elements” theme.
  • The Relay for Life theme for the season will be “Passport to Hope”.

The 2017 Sci-Fi Con will be the 10th we’ve done, so expect wonderful things for our 10th anniversary!

Stay tuned to these pages for updates and info in the next few weeks about registration, themes, guidelines and a whole lot more!

Trek for A Cure Faire Closing Speeches & Sims

 

Months of preparation, 3 sims, 5 days 88 booths and hundreds of visitors gave birth to “Trek for a Cure” Faire to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Star Trek whilst supporting the America Cancer Society charity “Relay for Life”.

But all good things must come to an end and faire organisers Kirk Wingtip, Richmerk and Debbydo once again took to Risa sims podium and gave their closing speech to around 50 avatars. Speech Transcribed below.

 

But that wasn’t the end for the night, there was still two final events. Firstly S3 Club’s DJane Nova got up on stage putting on another great DJ Set straight after the closing speeches, later on the milky way cabaret saw out the night with another hour of music and dance from their now famous and popular cabaret show.

As the hours past and the sims started to quiet down is was that sad moment at every faire/convention when it’s time for everyone to pick up their booths. It’s now become a bit of a tradition to not just delete or return copies of their booths to inventory, but to have a little fun by throwing on physics, delinking the prims and watching them fall demolition style to the ground. Your usually left with a sim which resembles a borg attack.

closing-simIt wasn’t long after that the sims finally closed by all going offline, if you looked on the map you could still see them there for a short time in red, but before long they were gone, but not forgotten.

All in all it’s been a wonderful event which had a great theme, lovely builds which gave the sim a unique flavour, also noticeable was the originality and variety in designs of the exhibitors booths.

Which all bodes well for when we get back together for the next Sci-Fi Convention 2017. Until then, thanks to the organisers, exhibitors and attendees for making this one of the most fun faires ever.
