Captain's Final Report

Team Aether Chrononauts Tiny Steps (Team ACTS)  had a very successful relay season.  We are a very tight-knit team, we care about each other and work well with other teams.  We care about our communities and do our best to represent them well.

This year, we had an award-winning campsite - we won third place for the Cancer Awareness Education Award.  We also won third place in Best Themed Decorated Campsite Award and First Place for Best Returning Team Participation. http://relayforlifeofsecondlife.org/awards/sl-awards/  

Our Campsite builders this year were Manfred Hancroft, Jennylynn Capalini and a new member (but an old friend) Kage Stratten.  Our campsite was 1950s Googie style - and was loved by many - http://aetherchrononautsrfl.blogspot.com/  Cassie Eldemar, our other builder was busy helping other teams  set up their campsites.

Additional pictures can be seen in the on track interview by Saffia Widdershins at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1fY6bTpeCfA  with our builders and at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVk86wPYkMA with the lead photographer for Relay, Admiral Beaumont. Coming up soon:  our builders will be appearing on Designing Worlds.  

Our team raised $1000 USD through Convio online.  We raised $3,326 USD with our events and our kiosks.  We reached Sapphire level in terms of overall team fundraising.  http://relayforlifeofsecondlife.org/fundraising/totals-page/  As far as we are concerned, we reached all of our goals - and accomplished much.  We especially enjoyed  the two weeks we took off and spent with Fantasy Faire.  Most of the team is somehow involved and we all have such a great time.

Our djs, Magdalena Kamanev, Manfred Hancroft, Bard Wasp, and Gerrard Winstanley provided us with fantastic music for our events and at special times such as Fantasy Faire and Relay.   They were always willing to help and enjoyed by all.

We had several folks help with vendors and events throughout Relay season, including: Paint SL Purple, Kick-Off Ceremony, the Halfway There Faire and Relay Weekend.

For those of us, who are survivors and caregivers, we know that cancer research is making great strides and we are very happy to take part.  We thank all of you who contributed so generously in so many ways.  Your attendance at an event is just as special to all of us as anything. All of us working together makes our team special. . Our team is tiny yet mighty, small yet forceful, diverse yet united, frolicking yet determined! We are ACTS! We are Relay!

Thank you to everyone who has helped us  and contributed - every linden is appreciated and even if you cannot contribute - please attend events - folks put a lot of work into these events - and we love to be with our friends!  

Burlesque Blues on the Blue Tiles with Bard's Blues Express


We had such a successful event and raised $L202K!!! I wanted to include the thank you note to all of you who were there and what I sent to those who helped to produce this event!  

Thank you from Team Aether Chrononauts Tiny Steps,

Words cannot express how wonderful it was for those of you who attended our Mellow Blues Sunday with Bard's Blue Express last night.- it meant so much  to all of us.- including the Blues Community.

Petuniia was a hostess and a dear friend of that community and of Cassie and me - We  talked every Thursday until she passed - her last words to me were relay relay relay and when you get tired - relay more - Our team adoped their team in 2013 so she would have a campsite to go to - the year I was voted Spirit of Relay and her team was Team Spirit of Relay.  Petuniia Trail goes across Ebonshire and Reverie thanks to Admiral Beaumont - and we have Petuniias at all our events.

Clint Westwood also djed at Junkyards but mostly at the Wharf owned by Fiery Otarred- another awesome dj.  We knew Clint mostly in InWorldz - he would also dj for us in InWorldz if he was not too ill - his final words to me - please don't give up!
Our team Tiny Steps for a Cure helped with his memorial - along with Dick Pinelli and Ganjo - Such a fantastic celebration of life - crashed the sim ! Success!


On a lighter note - Bard's Blues Express does come into the Junkyards every Sunday night - Cassie and I will always be there as will Ms. Magda and Ms. Merry!   Ms. Fiery is on right before him - and you cannot find finer folks to begin/end  your week with.  Bard's schedule is in his picks - Bard Wasp - so from 7 - 11 you can enjoy some of the best blues ever!  I only stressed over the fact that the Euros could not come - but thought it was time for a west coast event.   I had no idea it would turn out like it did - we raised $202K Lindens for our team and for Relay !  How awesome is that -

Thank you so much for allowing me to ramble  -

Olde -

Captain's Update - FINALLY !!!

It has been a busy past two months for many of us in RL and SL - But our team has participated and helped out in so many ways for RFL of SL !!!  (let's see if I catch all of them  - if something gets left out, let me know)

Many of us were involved in Fantasy Faire.  I was helping with RFL Tools and working with Zander.  Many of us participated as the Fairelands' Long Paw of the Law under Commandant Xavian.   The duty of a sheriff at Fantasy Faire is not easy - hard work there !   Capturing hardened criminals like our own Clover and Dru  - and raising a LOT of money to help Fantasy Faire for RFL of SL .  Magdalena Kamenev djed for Fantasy Faire as did Bard Wasp ( an unofficial member of our team)  Wildstar was the official photographer and he has a fantastic photographic blog for the faire. Leia also was one of the official bloggers.  Several folks had shops like Jennylynn and Mani.   Other tinies that are not officially on our team also helped out.

At the medieval festival, several of us participated in the EnGarde Tournament - and Linn and Ms. Eili were in the final round - Olde ended up there - to fill out one of the byes but unfortunately we all lost in that first round of champions - This competition took place over several weeks - and GREAT job Linn and Eili .

We had a booth of vendors at the Halfway There Faire - thanks Jennylynn, Pieni and Cassie for doing vendors for that event - Cassie and Olde also played with a steamland group - led by Hearts and Souls with a tribute to Electric Light Orchestra.

Our booth at Relay Stock received accolades from many - our big bird on top of the van was fantastic. I was able to hide in one of the sleeping bags and get some work completed !  - thanks again to Jennylynn Capalini and Pieni Resident  for vendors and decor - also a big thanks to Suzetta Moonites who was able to fill in and do a dj spot for our team .   It was a wonderful time with several BYOKs (Bring Your Own Kiiosk) events and thank you to Bain and Panza who manned those while I had to go to other events.

Speaking of BYOKs - Bain, Panza , Cassie and I  try to get to most of them  - they are later at night for the most part so not Euro friendly - we try to make it to the Wednesday BYOK by Team Shadow.  When you see that total slowly climbing it is due to all the vendors, kiosks, byoks, and hard work by everyone!  Thanks to those who have a vendor in their shop !!! Greatly appreciated !!

Linn Darkwatch competed in Team Caledon's TEAWRace and the 2015 Great Race of Caledon !! Not  only did he compete - HE WON!!! Way to go Linn!!!  

We also appreciate and a big shout out to Junkyard Blues and Cay's Woodland who both have our kiosk out at all time !  Great !!

Thanks to everyone who is helping our team - remember your participation and assistance is just as important as lindens - When folks go to all the hard work to put on any event - your attendance is always welcome !

If any of you need vendors or kiosks - or are interested in helping out with an event - let me know!   We have plenty of time before campsite time !   The excitement is building !  

Take care  - and take care of each other!  *hugs*
