September 2014 Issue #39
WELCOME to the thirty-ninth issue of the Bay City Post! - Keeping you updated on the best city on the grid.
Yes! I'm late! I'll call it a tribute to Ever, though it is a reminder of those nights her and I would spend going "We need to get the Post out! AIEE!"
But we're here, and everyone has turned in a cracker of an issue. And all of them got their content in on time! Well, most of them, but I can hardly point fingers here!

All that ...and maybe a just a wee bit more!
HOT BAY CITY NIGHTS
by Marianne McCann
August meant Hot Bay City Nights, our third annual car show & sale, charity car wash, and site of the Miss Bay City Pageant!
The weather was fine at the fairgrounds as six of the top car designers in Second Life came together to show off their wares. Included in the show this year was 2Zoetic Motors, GEMC, What-Iff Motors, Akioto Motors, GEMC, Cindy Henusaki Custom Cars, and Bull God Choppers.
The event was more than just buying and selling cars, with the annual charity car washes put together by Rachel Seelowe and Kinnaird. These three events, coupled with regular fundraising during the event and some generous donations by our car vendors led to some record breaking donations, as Bay City raised L$115,900 for Child's Play Charity. That's just about US$437.00. The donation is currently making its way to PayPal, after which it will be presented to Child's Play.
Finally, Bay City was home to the best beauty pageant contestants on the grid, with the Miss Bay City Pageant! Participating this year were Linsey Carter, Maureen Boccaccio, Uccello Poultry, Alyssa Elizabeth Kintsugi, and Lorna Stratten. DJing the event was GoSpeed Racer of KONA Stream, with Pygar Bu as Master of Ceremonies. ADudeNamed Anthony, Evola Courtois, and Marianne McCann served as judges.
After a heated contest -- and a slight interruption by a fellow in a sombrero -- it was Uccello for a three-peat of winners residing on the Bay City - Dennis/Bay City Harwich border! Congrats to all our contestants!
Thanks to all who came out to support Hot bay City Nights and Child's Play.
