First and foremost, I have to tell you, that I am truly blessed to have the awesome co-captains that I do.  Liz Harley, Sam55 Chester, and Precious Rallier...knowing how very much last year took from me, stepped up to help in ways that ...well they are amazing!!!

Once again this team will come together in ways I never thought possible when this started.  Last year when the season ended, we had 177 members. this year the team looks like it is continuing to grow in size.  Soo many are returning.  If you were on the team last year, and are continuing this year please let myself, Liz, Precious or Sam know.....I will never assume and so it is important that you let one of us know that you are intending to continue with us. 

For those of you that are not aware, I will give you a brief synopsis of the team.  We are a Relay For Life team of SL....comprised of performers, venues, managers, fans...all the many different avenues of Second Life music working together, with no personal agendas,  solely to make a difference in the lives of others.  Smiles, that being said, this is still there is promotion involved.  A close friend of the team had made us a sign last year...a rotating musical note and a rotating harp...depending on the venue's preference; this sign does contain the bio of every performer on the team and a description with landmark of every venue on the team.

I will copy and paste the notecard I am sending out inworld, it will give you a brief description of last year as our first year:

Happy New Year!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and has had time to get back to normal.  It is the time of year that SL MUSIC RACES gets to make a difference in so many lives.

Just a brief recap of last year:

* We had the 2nd largest number of team members in RFL of SL demonstrating just how large of a community live music is in SL.  The team was made up of SL performers, Live Music Venues, managers, and fans, bringing together all the different avenues of live music from around the world.  (I learned how to use a

* We were the third highest fund raising team raising over $16,000 USD...beaten by one of the oldest teams in SL and Amaretto Horses.

There are a couple of things I would like to point out about this that made it so very impressive.....the first being that we demonstrated that music does make a difference and the second being that every event we did and everything sold was completely about live music in sl. 

Some events that were both unique and impressive: 

*A week long music festival week, working with another team.

* The live music raffle of which 10 (I think) live performances were raffled off.

* An Art Auction that consisted of live music throughout it...complete with a mime behind one of the performers.

* A global Music Fest consisting of a number of venues and spanning decades of live music.  representing the 4 corners of the world....both music and cancer are global.

* A music through the years tour consisting of a number of venues and spanning decades of music.

* A clothing auction uniquely done with each one of a kind made item made exclusively for one of the sl performers. Only the performer and winning bid received them.

* The first Ms. & Mr. SL MUSIC RACES FOR A CURE pageant. 

* The first international song contest bringing performers from around the globe to compete with one song.

*Venues of all types held events, gave some wonderful ideas that were acted upon, donated time and money.

* A packed weekend of dual streaming....bringing together so many different performers working together.

*  Every performer and venue was included along with their bios and/or description.  Many performers have since made comments to me that their own personal groups have grown due to many of the team events.

In a brief live music came together,  no personal agendas, united as a team to make a difference and WE DID!  Now it is time to look at the second year,

As we enter our 2nd year, we are looking to repeat this and continue to show that sl music does make a difference.

Please join us as we continue to battle against a disease that takes on so many insidious forms and has touched every single one of us in so many ways.  The battle against cancer has had milestones in some areas and miles to go in others, only in everyone working together we will all continue to make milestones.

Yahoo!!!  Construction is just about done on my sim...focusing on the team a great deal and this morning I got a chance to venue hop...Finally!!!

Started at a favorite venue of mine...Guthries....always a wonderful place to visit and Dottie outdoes herself in her choice of line up.  This morning I had the pleasure of listening to an absolutely beautiful voice...Phoe Nix.  This woman has the voice of an angel.  My advice to you, if you see her don't walk to one of her shows, you are truly in for a treat!

On to Singers Haven a new venue for me to hear FredMergatroid Resident. Another awesome voice at a great venue.  This must be my lucky is starting out perfect.....  On to another favorite of mine...Kickin Club.  This venue, always packed, it was like old home week, I was able to see so many friends.  Listened to the lovely sounds of Jacqueline Luik.  She truly knows how to WOW a crowd.

I went on to another new venue and a performer I had not heard before PALAZZO LIVE MUSIC VENUE, and was able to listen to UtahCowboy Kayor.  He has one of those soothing voices....ooohhh darn I lost the stream.....relogged, that did not work, tp'd home....there I had the stream so I went back...for whatever reason I could not get the stream there.  Time to think a little about rl and eating something anyway, so until the next hour begins.....

I never made it back....but went out today to do a bit more....started out at Blue Moon, I had not been to that venue I love finding new places.  It has such a cozy comfortable feel and Madmax Huet playing the blues...what a great way to start.

On to another old favorite Cafe Casablanca, it was so good to be able to talk with NytEyes.  She let me know about an old friend that had passed away due to cancer.  Shakes many good people lost to this devastaing disease.  Before I regress to how important the team is, I should let you know that I have been listening to Alatiel Pessoa.  I have never heard her before, she puts on a show that truly carries one away, and so much of it is not in Englixh.  I must admit that is one facet of sl music that I love.  No matter what t5he language, if the music and voice are does not matter what language....the magic is still woven.

That was all I had time for before rl took over.  That darn rl, always finds a way to throw in a curve ball.

I have to admit, it felt good to get back out and enjoy the things I like so very much about sl....the live music community.
