Snapshots: Bay City’s Seventh Anniversary


Over 55 avatars attended Bay City’s Seventh Anniversary on Sunday 17th May 2015. The parade was great fun down route 66 and the music concert in the North Channel region was excellent from start to end. I can’t wait for next year’s Bay City’s 8th anniversary. :)

Happy 7th Anniversary Bay City

The inworld meetup today with Lindens and Residents

On Thursday 14th May 2015 between 1pm to 2pm SLT Linden Lab hosted a special inworld meetup at the well known Basilique region with the Second Life community. This time over 100 avatars attended (104 was recorded at one point) and many Lindens stopped by to chat. There were discussions on SL12B, SS Galaxy the next generation platform and many more topics.

There was a live stream via YouTube of this inworld meetup and the meeting was done using text chat. There will be more meetups in near future and I hope to attend those. I did crash a few times but managed to take snapshots of the meeting.

Here are my snapshots of the meetup from today.

BAY CITY CELEBRATES 7TH ANNIVERSARY

Mainland Community Celebrates with Parade, Live Music

BAY CITY, SL (3 May, 2015) – Bay City, the first project of the “Linden Department of Public Works,” is entering it’s 7th year as part of Second Life. To Celebrate, Residents and friends of the popular mainland community will host their annual parade as well as a live music event.

Anniversary participants are asked to gather at noon SLT/PDT on Sunday, the 17th of May, to lineup for the parade at the bandshell in Bay City – Harwich. The parade will make its way down Route 66 beginning at 12:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, concluding at the Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region.

A live concert will kick off at 1:30 p.m. SLT/PDT at the Bay City Fairgrounds, featuring a trio of live acts as well as DJ Marx Dudek providing music leading into the event.

All Residents of the Second Life grid are welcomed to participate. Celebration goods are available at the Bay City Community Center, in the Daley Bay region, for those who wish to be a part of the parade, and ample viewing area is provided. The music event is also open to all who desire to attend — not only Residents of Bay City

Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab™ and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life™ and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest Bay city group, and home to most Residents of Bay City.

I just like to point out that the SL community likes having Lindens inworld either at meetups or at events in Second Life. Apparently there will be more regular meetups in the weeks ahead and I would like to say thanks so much to all the Lindens that attended today. I thought the meetup went really well along with good discussion too.
