[09:25] Lyr Lobo: they often have a box with the gear in it for each lap
[09:25] Lyr Lobo: so y ou don’t have to go shopping *grins*
[09:25] Lyr Lobo: or dig for it
[09:25] Jules (jules.mcwinnie): this looks fabulous!
[09:25] Lyr Lobo: I love to skate through the track
[09:25] Lyr Lobo: which is over 10000 meters
[09:25] Lyr Lobo: with 45 grids
[09:26] Lyr Lobo: pull up your world map if you can
[09:26] Lyr Lobo: it is ctrl M on a windows system
[09:26] Lyr Lobo: for those who are new
[09:26] Lyr Lobo: possibly command M on a mac
[09:26] Siri Vezina: I couldn’t get the one to work

[09:27] Lyr Lobo: scroll around to see all 45 regions
[09:27] Siri Vezina: yep, the new one worked
[09:27] Lyr Lobo: unlike past years, it is not a square
[09:27] Rini Hathaway: Goodness, I’m going to need hiking shoes.
[09:27] Lyr Lobo: but more like a heart shape

[09:28] Siri Vezina: skates!  I have several RFL pairs 🙂
[09:28] Lyr Lobo: it is such fun to skate, ride horses, and dance around the track
[09:28] Lyr Lobo: kickin’ Cancer in the backside all the way
[09:28] Lyr Lobo: for dances, activate one of your dances in your inventory to swirl around as you skate
[09:28] Lyr Lobo: it is such fun
[09:28] Lyr Lobo: they worked on lag last year
[09:28] Lyr Lobo: and optimized the track
[09:28] Lyr Lobo whispers: T1 radion created a HUD
[09:29] Beth Ghostraven: oh awesome!
[09:29] Lyr Lobo: T1 radion created a HUD
[09:29] Lyr Lobo: that you wear and don’t have ot use the radio station
[09:29] Beth Ghostraven: Lag was a lot better at Fantasy Faire this year too
[09:29] Lyr Lobo: as it lags you when you cross regions
[09:29] Lyr Lobo: and the radio shifts
[09:29] Lyr Lobo: this is a no /low lab tune fest
[09:29] Lyr Lobo whispers: any questions?
[09:30] Lyr Lobo: any questions? *grins*
[09:30] Lyr Lobo: The event is free and the goal is to take a stand. While fundraising is desired, we met our goal
[09:30] Lyr Lobo: for this year
[09:30] Rhiannon Chatnoir: great
[09:30] Lyr Lobo: we’ve raised 256,962.87  and the goal was 250,000.00
[09:30] Elli Pinion: Wow!
[09:30] Lyr Lobo: with one day left and the Relay yet to do
[09:31] Elli Pinion: That’s stunning!
[09:31] Lyr Lobo: plus, the auctions for boats, buildings, cool tech, and amazing creations are still coming

[09:31] Lyr Lobo: I bought the next wave of linden bears

[09:31] Buffy Beale: that is incredible fundraising!
[09:31] Lyr Lobo: gachas by the track
[09:31] Lyr Lobo: yes
[09:31] Lyr Lobo: that’s the reason we feature it here
[09:31] Lyr Lobo: in addition to fighting cancer
[09:31] Lyr Lobo: RFL is a great rolemodel
[09:32] Lyr Lobo: for social good
[09:32] Lyr Lobo: in Second Life and how to manage over 1000 volunteers
[09:32] Buffy Beale: Lyr, are those real dollars or Lindens?
[09:32] Lyr Lobo: and pool the creative efforts
[09:32] Lyr Lobo whispers: good question, I suspect USD
[09:32] Buffy Beale: kk ty
[09:32] Lyr Lobo: I suspect usd
[09:32] Lyr Lobo: because we raised over 68,000 in Fantasy Faire in USD
[09:32] Lyr Lobo: and had 4 months of fundraising
[09:33] Buffy Beale: Amazing
[09:33] Lyr Lobo: many of the teams had $1,000 goals
[09:33] Lyr Lobo: yes it is
[09:33] Rhiannon Chatnoir crashed.. back now
[09:33] Lyr Lobo: the money is going to build a HOpe Lodge in Kenya
[09:33] Lyr Lobo: we’ve been working on it for two years now

[09:35] Lyr Lobo: I was team captain for many years, and I was Public Relations and Media Relations Area Chair in 2011-2012 when Rhiannon invited me to speak here for the first time *Grins*
[09:35] Lyr Lobo: Haven’t hushed up yet *winks*
[09:35] Gentle Heron: Relay involves so many people and is spread out over the whole year, really. Has anyone ever figured the funds raised per volunteer hour spent on fundraising?
[09:35] Lyr Lobo: I lost my entire family to cancer
[09:35] Lyr Lobo: including aunts, uncles, great-aunts, grandparents..
[09:35] Lyr Lobo: friends
[09:35] Rini Hathaway: Oh no
[09:36] Lyr Lobo: and I was born with it after excessive radiation prior to birth
[09:36] Lyr Lobo: so it is a labor of love to fight for a better future for our children
[09:36] Valibrarian Gregg: sorry to hear that Lyr – your work is inspiring
[09:37] Lyr Lobo: as many of you know, my sister of the heart, Delightful Doowangle fights non-hodgkins lymphoma for her third wave of Stage 4 cancer
[09:37] Lyr Lobo: and is still going strong, Val
[09:37] Lyr Lobo: as did my other research partner with his stage 4 cancer last year
[09:37] Lyr Lobo: so we struggle together
[09:37] Lyr Lobo: and stay strong together *smiles*
[09:37] Lyr Lobo: any questions on the relay for life?
[09:37] Lyr Lobo: once we go there, it is easy to get distracted, so my thoughts were to let you enjoy it free without listening to me *grins*
[09:38] Lyr Lobo: I have to watch the lu8minarias
[09:38] Lyr Lobo: the little bags on the side of the road
[09:38] Lyr Lobo: to figure out which way to walk or run *laugsh*
[09:38] Beth Ghostraven: I need to buy some luminarias
