Hi we registered our group for this years relay
it's same as last years named it "Giant Snail Relay"

What we do do is hold four or five Cross country Giant snail Races, One per month. That's our big fund raiser. People buy tickets to race, The ones that pay more get to start near the front. We usually span 3 sims worth of snails
you can modify the snails add your own touches add flags or banners then we race across 35 sims running down the linden roads. Many snails are lost each year. It's a lot of fun. Treet films it. Anyone can be in it. We'll start selling tickets soon.

Go Relay!!!

The Cross Country Races
---------------------------------------
This is a really fun event. You can pick up the free Giant Snail avatar at http://slurl.com/secondlife/Abitibi/49/175/57 Just touch the snail box there.
Get a pimp my snail kit while your there it has a lot of things you can use to mod your snail if you want. The scarfs ARE on sale you can come by and buy a starting position scarf this gets your name added to the finish line so you'll hopefully get counted(we've had more trouble with this finish line one of these days well get it to work right) anyway I think I have it fixed this time.
The scarf donation prices are

1500 for a front starting position
500 for a middle starting position and
1 to be in the back starting position.

All Donations go to the American Cancer Society
then show up 30 or more minutes before the race get rezzed get your draw distance set low and simple and get ready to go. Here's what a race looks like http://treet.tv/shows/snailraces/episodes/ep089

Oh to enter the the NEW best dressed Snail of the days race contest contact Sante Klees to get your snail modeling shots filmed after you get your snail modded. Well try to get someone from Fabulous Fashion to pick the winner maybe. This will give us something to show people when the snails aren't near a camera positions during the races.

---------------------------------------------------------
We have a lot of folks that watch and want to be a part of the race but for one reason or the other don't race. Here is the way they can be involved without having to drive a snail.

They can sponsor a snail
The sponsor would pledge so many L$ on a snail for each sim they went through. Depending on the place of the snail at the finish of the race the amount would be more.

for example

10th or below.......1L per sim,
9th...........................2L,
8th...........................3L,
7th...........................4L, ect. to 1st place where the amount would be 10 L per sim for a maximum donation of 600L for the 60 sim race.

So if a snail can get just 10 sponsors,....win the race it could add 6000 to the kiosks.

The sponsors will even get a little plaque saying they sponsored the Great Giant Snail Race of 2010!
They could even get a little plaque saying they sponsored the Great Giant Snail Race of 2010! 1st 2nd and 3rd being fanciful some way.

The more sponsors the bigger the bragging rights for bringing in the highest donation amount for that race/year.

The donations and would all be between the snail and the sponsors please tp your sponsor to one of our Kiosks to pay it.

Las Cross Country Races

Este es un evento realmente divertido. Puedes coger el Avatar de Caracol Gigante aqui http://slurl.com/secondlife/Abitibi/49/175/57
tan solo toca la caja del caracol alli.
Coge un kit de tunea mi caracol cuando estes alli que tiene un monton de cosas que puedes usar para modificar tu caracol si quieres.
Despues, cuando las bufandas esten a la venta, probablemente el dia 14, tu puedes venir y comprar una bufanda de posiciion de salida, esto hace que tu nombre quede registrado para la linea de llegada.
Las ultimas veces hemos tenido problemas para contar el orden de llegada de tantos caracoles a la vez pero afortunadamente creemos que esto esta resuelto y funcionara esta vez.
Los precios de las donaciones son

1500 o mas para salir en cabeza
500 o mas para salir en el medio
1 o mas para salir desde atras
Todas las Donaciones van a la American Cancer Society

Una vez hecho estate por alli unos 30 minutos antes de la carrera, pon tus graficos en Bajo y todo simple y preparate para salir.
aqui tienes un ejemplo de como sera la carrera http://treet.tv/shows/snailraces/episodes/ep089

Oh, y para entrar en lo NUEVO de el mejor caracol vestido de el dia de las carreras contacta con Sante Klees para que te grabe unas tomas. Hazlo despues de tener preparado tu caracol. Bueno intentaremos coger a alguien de Fabulouse Fashion para escoger al ganador quizas. Esto nos puede ayudar a saber donde estais en que posicion durante la carrera.

This is the route for June's race you may notice it looks familiar. Well it's the same one we used in April so that may be why. I just didn't have time to set up a new route this month due to unexpected pc trouble. So were just going to do this route again because it was so much fun. I didn't fix the wrong way arrow so watch out for that. Last time I deleted the arrow after a few snails went the wrong way this week I think I'll leave it alone so everyone can enjoy it. lol :) Atol RouteAtol Route We start at the top http://slurl.com/secondlife/Fillip/238/22/30 and go to the bottom ending at Hobo http://slurl.com/secondlife/Calleta/133/205/3

Here's the map for the May race. Well I think were done so it shouldn't be changing anymore. Hint when you hit the boom cannon let go of the foreward button and let it send you as far as it can you'll hit an invisible wall that will drop you right on the path.Skyline Map RFL 2010eSkyline Map RFL 2010emoving mazemoving mazebouncy shroomsbouncy shrooms
