Ten years of Relay Weekend

Ten years of Relay Weekend

The tenth annual Relay Weekend in Second Life opens to the public at 10am SLT today over at the 40+ “RFL” regions. Relay Weekend takes place from Saturday 19th July to Sunday 30th July 2014.

It’s the largest fundraising event in the virtual worlds. This is the 40+ sim event that features all of our teams, as we walk together for 24 hours around the track. Cancer never sleeps…and so for one night each year, we refuse to sleep, to show our commitment to the fight against cancer.

Great work so far

So far this year the RFL of SL volunteers, builders and the main organises of the event have worked so hard to fund raise and support RFL of SL. Good luck to all those taking part in this year’s annual Relay Weekend and lets hope new records will be broken.

Final goodbye to SL11B

Today is the last day for public viewing for the SL11B regions before the sims go offline next week. The breakdown of the sims will start from Sunday 6th July 2014 until mid next week. I decided to take one last trip to the sims this morning to take some snapshots of some interesting SL11B exhibits for the final time. See my SL11B blog coverage here and my SL11B snapshots.

For those that are interested in staying updated on future Second Life birthdays, join the new group called SLB Community Celebration. This group will be the new place for all SLB info and announcements. SL11B was a huge success from start to end with good coverage this year. The SL12B countdown has now started and planning for that will start in early 2015.

Guide to SL11B Pod Tours


One of the main attractions at SL11B community celebration is the exciting Pod Tours which guides you through all of the exhibits and gives you information about them. Yavanna Llanfair designed the two Pod Tours at SL11B and this year there are surprises along the way depending on the environment. The SL11B sims are truly awesome and I have to say that the pod tour is a good way to see everything.

There are 22 free pods with departures every 4 minutes at each station. The pod tour system is split into two separate areas which include the Western Sims and Eastern Sims. The Western sims pod tour lasts for around 38 minutes and the Eastern sims pod tour lasts for around 45 minutes so please keep that in mind. To ride a pod, click the cone at either one of the SL11B Pod Stations and enjoy the fantastic tour! :)

Getting Started

Firstly behind the pod stations there is a SL11B info package to grab for free giving you all the information you need including landmarks, maps, hunts and performances.

Life is a series of transitions. It’s not about where you are right now. It’s about which direction you’re going. Smile, and drink a frappuccino.
