WELCOME to the thirty-ninth issue of the Bay City Post! - Keeping you updated on the best city on the grid.

LATE EDITION!

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!

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.

WELCOME to the thirty-eighth issue of the Bay City Post! - Keeping you updated on the best city on the grid.

We're baaaaaack!

So it's been a couple months. I'm sure you don't need me to tell you why the delay. But I will anyway, just below.

And yes, the passing of Ever Dreamscape does mean that there's a new face at the helm here. She always begged me to take it over, and well, I guess she won that debate in the end.

I'll try to do my best to keep the paper in Ms. Dreamscape's spirit, though I can assure you I could never wear a monkey suit quite like her. For now, I will call myself an "interim" editor. I'm not an editor, but I'll do my best.

EVER DREAMSCAPE PASSES AWAY


by Marianne McCann



Ever Dreamscape, Bay City Post Editor, Etv Owner, Park Plaza bellhop, Insurance Saleswoman of the Year, and general troublemaker around Bay City, passed away in May of 2014 due to health complications brought on due to liver disease.

The city itself burned in her honor in the wake of her passing, with many parcels continuing to burn for the 6th anniversary of Bay City. The Anniversary was the last event she worked on, helping to arrange for some of the performers for the fĂȘte. A temporary memorial was also presented on the grounds of the Bay City Center where community members gathers in the wake of her passing to leave photos and other items to honor her.

Her lands have largely been preserved: Roc Plutonian owns the land that makes up the Park Plaza, the Rez N Ride, the insurance agency, and the Etv building (which is home to the Bay City Post). Mr. Plutonian has opted to preserve Ever's apartment at the Park Plaza as is for those who recall it from the many "Etv" specials that she shot there. Marianne McCann and Pygar Bu have kept The Pen, picking up Ever Dreamscape's portion of the tier.

The Bay City Brewery was also preserved after a fashion: a permissions mishap caused the structure and its contents to be returned to Ever's inventory. The structure has since been rebuilt in a new form by Ivan Suen, under the guidance of parcel owner Kinnaird Resident.

Ever Dreamscape had passed on the keys to the Bay City Post to Marianne McCann before her passing. She had also sold her personal land in Nova Albion in the months leading to her passing.
