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!
