Scenes From The Relay

By Bixyl Shuftan

Quite a bit has happened in the past week in the Relay for Life. A few things I've written on, such as my Jade Avatar Challenge, and Shockwave Yareach's Cancer Shootout. But there were a few other happenings that deserve at least a small mention.

Saturday May 26 was the first cross-country race of the Giant Snail Racing Relay team. While sometimes held across a mainland continent, this time they were in the sims of Roshaven, a history-themed roleplay area.

RacerX Gullwing got into the act with his suit of armor. I might have gotten more pictures, but with the sims having a low capacity, I moved into the next one over. And for some reason couldn't see anyone on nearby sim. Between that and the lag, I couldn't get good pictures of the race.

Later that day at the Home and Garden Expo, there was a music tribute concert by MichaelJackson Follett. It was called "Moonwalking the Expo."

MichaelJACKSON Follett is about to start a show called, 'Moonwalking' at the Expo!  These shows are GREAT, if you haven't seen a Michael show,  you will want to come out.

Michael and his group danced to various songs from "Billy Jean" to "Bad" to "Black and White" and a number of others, including of course "Thriller."

The large amount of gold showing up on Michael was likely the effects of lag on my viewer. But it was a fun tribute to "The King of Pop."

The Expo was also the site of a "Beat the Clock" competition. I wasn't around when the race took place, but I did drop in on the obstacle course, which people taking part were encouraged to practice on.

The course had a hole of miniature golf, a basketball court with a hoop, both of which you had to get the ball in the hole and hoop before proceeding, a zip-line, and a fourth area in which you had to get down a street in a giant hamster ball.

Even going through in practice was fun. The winner of the event would get 2500 donated to his or her Relay team.

On Wednesday May 27, I dropped in briefly at the Relay Rap. I was asked a question or two about my appearance, but some people had already found out.

That's it for now, but no doubt I'll have something else on the Relay real soon.
