Two Weeks to Blast Off!

Prepare for Warp Speed!

horgahnsign1The great super duper awesome 2016 Sci-Fi Faire “Trek to a Cure” opens in 2 weeks! The sims are officially rented and paid for, and we are good to go! The sim names and exact locations will be revealed to us by LL in the next few days, and we’ll pass it right on to you all.

Dates

The official Faire dates are September 7-11. For booth owners, setup will start just as soon as we have the land parceled off, which will be sometime on Sunday the 4th.

RFL

We’ll also try and get the RFL vendors and kiosks and all that stuff out to everyone as soon as possible.

Register

And if you still haven’t registered your booth, there’s still time. There are 5 open plots still available, as well as 4 small vendor stalls. So hurry!

4 WEEKS!

How did time get so short?! Four week until the Faire!!

Before we all get too deep into building our booths and making our plans, PLEASE READ THESE REMINDERS:

  1. Height Restrictions: The Faire will be more crowded and tighter than previous Cons and Faires. To prevent having the streets at the bottoms of super deep canyons between rows of immense booths, we’ve set a maximum allowable booth height. PLEASE do not make your booths taller than the maximum limit for your particular type of booth.
    • Free Stall – Must fit inside stall
    • Free 28×28 Booth – 10 meters max height
    • Tier-1 30×30 Booth – 20 meters max height
    • Tier-2 36×36 Booth – 30 meters max height
    • Tier-3 40×40 Booth – 40 meter max height

     

  2. RFL Vendors: Remember that the SL Sci-Fi Faire has always been a charity event supporting the RFL of SL. To support the cause, all MERCHANT booths are required to have a minimum of 2 RFL vendors in their booths. (Non-merchant booths like RP groups or art exhibits are not required to do so.) RFL vendors are special vendors that will be supplied to us before the Faire by the RFL, that will automatically donate 100% of their sales to the RFL of SL cancer charity. So if you run a store, remember you’ll need to put at least two items in RFL vendors (you can do more if you want to be more generous). Thank you!

And finally, if you still haven’t registered, time has almost run out. Mainly because there are only 6 booth plots left! First come first serve!  :)  There are also 4 small free stalls left for those of us that don’t need a full booth or just want to set up a few vendors.

 

Update July 22

It’s getting close to crunch time!

We have over 80% of our booths filled, so if you’re thinking of registering for one, better hurry!

Remaining booths:
10 booths that can be either 28×28 free or 30×30 2000L$
7 free small 12×12 vendor stalls

Klingon Style!

Here’s another quick sneak-peak to fire up the imaginations – the Klingon Theater area of the the Events sim. When finished, it will house three movie theaters decorated in the styles of various Trek eras, and a Trek museum spanning 50 years of television and cinematic history and centuries of Trek universe history!

First Glimpse

As promised, a few pics.  :)  The large outdoor stage area is done in Vulcan style, since it directly borders the Vulcan side of the Faire. More small details will be added, but this is the general look of the venue so far.
