Saturday March 7th and Sunday March 8th will see both a wind-down of the 2015 RFL of SL Paint it Purple campaign and the launch of the official 2015 RFL of SL fund raising season as he kick-off weekend arrives.
Paint it Purple, the annual event designed to raise awareness and excitement about the current year’s RFL of sL season, started on February 21st and concludes on Saturday February 7th (so you still have time to join in, if you haven’t already done so!). It does so by encouraging everyone to paint the grid purple, the official colour of RFL of SL, and you can do so by painting your house, your land, even yourself purple for all or part of the time.
To mark the end of this year’s campaign, there will be a special Paint Second Life Purple wrap up party on Saturday, March 7th, starting at 17:00 SLT and running through until 20:00 SLT. Hosted by T1 Radio, the party is also an opportunity for teams to set-up for the Main Event on Sunday, March 8th. So why not get the purple togs out one last time and join the fun!
Sunday, March 8th marks the official RFL of SL kick-off event, with activities occurring throughout the day (all times SLT):
- 09:00 – 10:00 – T1 Radio Pre-Kick Off Show
- 10:00 – 11:00 – Kick Off Opening Ceremony & Speeches
- 11:00 – 17:00 – Live performers, djs, and team campsites are open
- 17:00 – 19:00 – Fireworks & Closing Party with T1 Radio’s Trader1 Whiplash
The kick-off events will take place across two regions adjacent to the American Cancer Society island (offical SLurls will be available via the RFL of SL website nearer the weekend). In keeping with the Back to the Future inspired theme for this year’s season, they have been designed to recreate the feel of the very first virtual relay, which took place in 2005, complete with team camp sites ready and waiting for set-up to commence.
So the only question now is: are you ready to relay?
