Our convio is  and you only use SL info at the top - billing is RL.

So far we have a region sponsorship, 2 theme sponsorships, and a book pedesteal for Shady, Stillpink, Soliel Snook, A. Whybrow,  Joker, Nin, and Petuniia.  I still have to purchase Nin's. Our theme sponsorships so far are Steampunkers and Swashbucklers For Life - so - let's show em what we are made of !!! If there is anyone that we need to do in memory, let me know !   Thank you to those who donated for all of these sponsorships - it helped make us platinum.

So, where do we go from here.... our venues will be taking care of us, our builders, our vendor folks, and just all kinds of exciting events coming up !!   Thanks so much to Junkyards Blues, Cays of Woodland Lake,  Theater on the Hill, Changhigh Trinity Sisters, and the Centurions MC.    Please support all of these folks as they all have great plans for us !!

That will be on June 3rd at 4pm SLT, followed by the Annual Fuzzball Celebration on June 3rd at 7pm SLT  Ms. Poppy will be having the Jam Tart Ball on June 11th and will have one at 1pm SLT for our Euros and one at 7pm SLT for those late night folks.   I will not be so remiss as to not mention to get out those morning suits and lovely blue dresses for The Royal Acot Race.    

Events coming up can be seen to the right in the calendar - a few still need to get in there and I need to clarify a few dates - but we will be having a great time up until Relay - on July 16 and 17th!   Remember to always use the website to see the latest - or join our inworld group for the latest updates !!

Soliel Snook's 9th Rezz Day Celebration

Lady Gabrielle and the fine folks of Radio Riel Main and St. John held a memorial Rezz Day Service to honour Soliel Snook, a dear friend of Radio Riel and the Steamlands.  Donations went to Team ACTS and we were so proud of Ms. Gabi's efforts - we heard the Gabi of the Past and the Gabi of the Now!   It was such a delight to hear all of the old rezz day programs.   Many listened from Radio Riel Main.   We appreciate everything and know that Lady Soliel would be so proud.   I personally met her 2 years ago - at her rezz day party, and wanted to give her a gift.  She told me then to please give her a kiosk for RFL so she could dance by it.  She wanted research to continue.   Many of you knew Ms. Soliel for many years and had the pleasure of her divine collection of music, she brought a lot of new music to Radio Riel that we all enjoy to this day.  Ms. Soliel, we know you are with us and we thank you for all the beauty you brought to all of us.

A Very Special Thank you from Her High Faireness and Zander Greene

Fantasy Faire 2016 would not have been possible without the support of the Aether Chrononauts Tiny Steps RFL Team. You came as merchants, as performers, producers and players, photographers, writers, and spinners of songs.  You even came as the Law! 

You brought joy, laughter, dance machines, and waffles! And you brought the Spirit of Relay.

Somewhere deep in the DNA of fantasy as a genre are lines of code about fellowship and struggles shared. These are connected to other lines - about reaching for what seems impossible, persevering in challenging times, about saying yes to the adventure - and together they weave a tapestry that is at once exotic and familiar.

For the countless ways you enrich our tapestry, for Relaying by our side - for saying yes! - the thanks of a grateful Fairelands are yours.

We wish you every success in this 2016 Season and we reaffirm that our sword and shield are at your service. Our eyes will stay alert for the signal fire to be lit.

And the Fairelands will answer it.

Go Relay!

You are certainly a busy group of folks - and I do understand that you honestly have real lives and I enjoy hearing about what you are up to .  So many of you work, some of you are working on your homes and gardens, and some of you are caregivers.  We are a very special group of folks - that mean very much to one another.   I absolutely LOVE LOVE our ACTS group inworld - where it is so easy to share.  

So far, we have worked with Christmas Expo, Home and  Garden and Fantasy Faire Mega events.  These are  opportunities  for you to shine  - and to let folks know you are there not just as a relayer but as a merchant.   We were at Paint SL Purple and many of you participated.  We went to Kick off and everyone is invited to the Halfway There Faire this weekend.  We will be getting our ribbon then.  IF you have any products to add to our vendors contact. Jennylynn Capalini  or me.  

We have a region sponsorship.   We also have Book Pedestals for the following people, Petuniia, Ms. Soliel, M. Whybrow, Shady, and our dear sweet Stillpink.   We also have two theme laps - so get your steampunk outfits and your swashbuckler outfits ready to go go go go ! Cathy10 Longoria has been very helpful in getting these sponsorships into our convio.!!!  

So here we are ready for the Halfway Faire this weekend.   We have achieved the Platinum Level -

How impresseive!! Now if you go to our total's site - and I always give you the captain's site so you can easily see in the last column how far it is to the next level.    You can see that most of our monies have come from convio.  - But this is the time of year that we concentrate on events and getting ready for relay.    I will be talking to our sponsors and have some I still need to contact..   If you wish to have an event - let me know as soon as possible so I can at least get it on our notecard and a dear soul will place it on our calendar.  

Several teams have joined our umbrella team for the steamlands and that is wonderful - Steelhead Salmons, Team Caledon, St. John's, Team Fox Star, along with the smaller steamland communities that have always been under our umbrella of Aether Chrononauts Tiny Steps.

Mani and Jennylynn Capalini represented our team on Relay Rap and discussed building campsites.  A more proud captain could not be found.   High Sheriff OldeSoul Eldemar (ooo that is me)  was interviewed by Ms.Saffia Widdershins and Elrik Merlin  - for Designing Worlds .First of the two episodes of Designing Worlds about the Fantasy Faire : Everybody go to minute 39, then you watch the rest of the video!!  Have fun !  My voice was dubbed by Zander Greene - who stated and I quote  "Zander Greene: LOL Playing Olde is the crowning achievement of my career LOL"  He. of course, was not aware that there were spies in the room. Da Dawgberries are always on Watch !

We will need more Tiny and Dinkie ossifers next year as we will be a part of Much Ado about Nothing - so you will be seeing some changes for Fantasy Faire - yeesh - plans are in the works ! Our main job of Jail and bails and watching ovah the steamlands is still our top priority.    Beware of Zander Greene - if you stay too close to him for too long - you will be bagged and tagged !! Trust me on this one!
