Duchess Liz Wilner Speaks on the Fourth Annual Royal Ascot and Races


By Bixyl Shuftan

On Saturday June 24, the fourth annual Royal Ascot Races will be taking place at Blackhawk Downs from 1 to 3PM SL time. The event will raise funds for the Relay for Life Team ACTS. Liz Wilner, known as the Duchess of Trikassi, talked about the event with the Newser. Of how it got started, "Lady Charik and I were thinkiing of a fine event to do for the RFL cause...we both are great fans of all that is Ascot. So four years ago, we decided to host a Second Life Royal Ascot, recreating the big Royal day at Ascot week. We enlisted the help of the extraordinary Countess Cassie Eldemar to recreate the proper enclosures, which she has done to perfection. Her husband, Lord Oldesoul Eldemar, has been of great assistance in handling all of the kiosks, advertising, and more.

"And in year three, I had the great pleasure of meeting Lady Zinda Blake, owner of Blackhawk Downs. She was very enthusiastic about allowing Ascot to be at her wonderful horse racing sim, and it has been such a joy to have Royal Ascot there. Each year, more and more attend, sponsor, race, and enjoy. Sir Gerrard Winstanley, G., has been our live MC and music director. And each year Royal Ascot is filmed and made to video for enjoyment. G calls all the races, makes commentary throughout, hosts the fabulous after party as well. It's a truly wonderful day of ladies in hats and finery...men in their best top hats and morning suits, races, surprises, great fun.

"And yes...it all starts with the Royal procession, then, 'Let the races begin!' Anyone can sign up to race their horse (nc to me or Olde by June 20th this year, more on that). Last year we had three main races, and then a bonus steeplechase race, followed by a tinies race, which, by the way, went over several laps because the tinies didn't want to stop going around the track (giggle).

"Each race has a kiosk, filled with prizes from sponsors, so people can see the race cards, and select 1st 2nd 3rd places...everyone wins something, the riders and horses are presented with trophies and ribbons in special ceremonies after each race completes. We love our sponsors, as well. They know each prize is a win for RFL, It is free to be a sponsor, should one wish to offer something for the races, a gift certificate, item, or service. Notecard either me or Olde. We have a special sponsor area. And all sponsors are announced live as well, where logos and LMs are displayed, We have a special sponsor area, and all sponsors are announced live as well...where logos and LMs are displayed. It is a signature event for Team ACTS RFL...and people from all over truly enjoy the dressing up, the racing, the great fun of the event. Each year we have more and more people. This year we have more new sponsors as well, in addition to previous sponsors, which is very exciting.

"This is a huge event, and we all work very hard to make it a special fun day,and different from the usual events."

May 2017 Update - Such Busy Relayers !!!

We have stayed quite busy for Relay however not within the community. As we do every year, we participated in Fantasy Faire.  I will quote myself in one of the blogs for Fantasy Faire because I do believe it explains what the participation of ACTS best.  Our team is very special and a very global team in relay. We are all very close. One event that draws all of us together is Fantasy Faire. The magic of the Fairelands affects each and every one of us. Some come as DJs, performers, others as merchants, sponsors, builders, sheriffs, Jailbirds, bloggers, shoppers and photographers. Speaking for all of us, Fantasy Faire brings together our rules: smile, have fun and do pawsum things. Our motto is “Whatever is rightly done, however humble, is noble.” The Magic of the Fairelands brings that together for all of us, no matter how we present ourselves in this wonderful world of Second Life.

This is hot off the presses!!!! Hey Nonny Nonny is now on YouTube!

Time Travellers Ball - A Grand Success

The Time Travellers Ball was a grand success, thanks to the many Steamlanders and numerous Relayers who attended. Thank you sooooo very much!!! It was exquisite in every way. DJ Otenth Paderborn provided us with a delightful and varied musical journey through time and space. The attendees handled the Time Ship travel in true ACTS form: they had fun, smiled and did awesome things. Thank you to Cassie Eldemar for the build and decor, to which Admiral Beaumont added some of his classic vehicles of time travel. Too much fun!!! Everyone had a most delightful time and were very generous.




Team ACTS Reaches Gold Level

As far as generosity goes - WE ARE NOW GOLD!!! Amazing!!! This was due to our kiosk amounts and donations to Dashboard. http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/RelayForLife/RFLCY17National?team_id=2165344&pg=team&fr_id=84413. If you are interested in donating this way, you may join with your SL name.  The Virtual Address is 123 Virtual Ave, New, York, New York, 12345. It is very easy to use. If you have any problems, let me (Oldesoul Elder) know and they will be reported. A big thank you to those who have contributed anywhere and everywhere.

Other Past Events

We have been attending a multi-team event with Team Shadow on Tuesday nights, holding Sunday Morning Pub Parties with DJ Bain Finch and doing a dual team event with Team OD, with our dear particle queen Jennylynn Capalini collecting at our fine venues. Get your materials from me or from one of our Co-Captains; also check past notices most are in the group notices for Aether Chrononauts RFL. If you are interested in joining our RFL team group in-world, all notices that pertain to us are located there, including opportunities to help with other teams. We are doing what we love and what we feel is the right thing to do, and we do it with honor and respect.

Several of members of the team attended the Survivors Caregivers Ball. It was beautiful. Live musicians Russell Eponym and Lisa Brune gave outstanding performances.  The annual Sci-Fi Con is now going on if anyone is interested in attending. From March 24th to April 2nd, with many activities, events, & even notable guest speakers from the REAL world!

Coming up in April: Fantasy Faire

Currently, we are firing up for Fantasy Faire. The Sheriffs are having their suits cleaned, Segways tuned up and warrant books close at hand. The Sheriffs have been transformed into The Fairelands Watch, to better match the Shakespearean plays being done this year. ACTS will have a creator store that is open to the entire team but the focus will be on items for Tinies. Each creator is asked to do 2 RFL vendors. Please let me know if you are interested in contributing to our store. Cassie will have a baby sim called a cradle sim - and be a worldling . We are very excited about that. This letter was sent to Cassie from Her High Faireness, I am very excited to have dedicated Faire people come in and have a chance to show us on a smaller scale some of their own visions of what the Fairelands could be. That is how I envision the Worldlings, as glimpses into worlds that may have been or may still be. They are Junction's dreams. They are our dreams. They are the future past, living outside time.The Worldlings show the connections between us all and how we can shape the worlds we live in, hopefully for the better.

We will also be event sponsors at FF: watch for Little Big.

With all that we do with Fantasy Faire, please be careful in our planning. Remember, no stress. That’s my job and the Admiral will control that. :) Thanks to my editors this year Ms. Magdalena Kameneve and Duchess Liz Wilner.

If you wish to be on the roster and get your own personal tools, please let me know.  I will help you as it is just a little different this year.  The main difference is the Passport Hud which has everything you need and where all the updates will come through.  Kiosk and vendor set up are basically the same. We do have an inworld group, AetherChrononauts RFL , to which all announcements go - if you are interested.  The google calendar is located on the ACTS Blog https://aetherchrononautsrfl.blogspot.com/   The Event Board page is now on the web http://relayforlifeofsecondlife.org/fundraising/events-list/

After that, we will have the Home and Garden Mega event - from May 19th - June 4th.  Several of our builders are participating.  There will also be smaller events going on all around, so something for everyone!

THEN!!!!!!  AWESOME things happen!!!   Prepare for venue events.  Prepare for one of our premiere events - The Royal Ascot Races hosted by Her Grace, Duchess Liz Wilner, Lady Oriella Charik, Admiral Beaumont, Countess and Lord Eldemar.  You can see the video from last year’s Ascot filmed by Elrik Merlin and edited by Petlove: https://vimeo.com/202520853.  If you are interested in being a sponsor, want to provide prizes or vendors, or would like to ride in the races, please let one of us know.  But be sure to book Saturday, June 24th, 2017 and wear your best finery!  

Our motto is:
Our Team believes this and I will do my best to uphold our events by our ACTS of Relay!  And above all, we are still abiding by our rules of Smile, have fun, and do awesome things.

Thank you Team ACTS for all you DO!! The GREATEST !!


Fellow Steamlanders and our tiny community,

Please forgive my tardiness in the final reporting of last year.   Several big events in our lives took precedence and I know you all agree that RL comes first and it did.  But, thankfully you now have my full attention again.  Team ACTS is all that - ACTS of kindness and togetherness,  We are ONE TEAM, and dear friends.

One major thing that did happen in regards to relay is that Team ACTS won a coveted award.  Our team and I mean TEAM - won the BEACON award.   The Beacon Award Celebrates one team who have made exceptional contributions to RFL of SL through acts of generosity or by providing leadership, creative ideas, skills or time without personal reward. The team who utilizes events and Relay opportunities to bring new awareness to our group
 This team's willingness to partner with Relayers from all walks of SL life exemplifies what it means to be a "beacon" in our fight against cancer.  Fantasy Faire 2016 would not have been possible without the support of this Team. They came as merchants, as performers, producers and players, photographers, writers, and spinners of songs.
 They also reached out with some creative events to RP sims.  For this and other reasons, our 2016 Team Beacon Award winner is Team ACTS.

All of the venues that helped our team and were very dedicated to the cause of eradicating cancer, along with each and every one of you are greatly appreciated.  I know the upcoming year will be a great year and I suspect that that olde tardy captain may just get that first report in faster than an act of ACTS!    Thank you all so much for all you have done in the past, this year, for stepping up when necessary, and helping out wherever we are needed.   You are all loved!  

OldeSoul Eldemar
Captain of Team ACTS
