Miss Bay City may be of any sex, orientation, or avatar type, and we would encourage bikini contestants to dress in vintage swimwear. After the contest the dance shall begin.
The charity car wash will be run throughout the week long event by volunteers as time allows, and accept donations which will go to childsplaycharity.org . "Your donations support seriously-ill children in hospitals by distracting them from their illnesses, and help them cope with fear, anxiety, and boredom." -Cameron Hosner - Children’s Hospital of Michigan.

Miss Bay City Bikini Contest!
The Bay City Alliance is holding a “Miss Bay City” bikini contest Saturday, August 24th at 1PM SLT. Contestants are encouraged to come early.
Miss Bay City may be of any sex, orientation, or avatar type, and we would encourage bikini contestants to dress in vintage swimwear.
Contestants do not need live in Bay City, but are encouraged to wear to the contest a title (may be self-assigned) such as Miss “Hottie from Toledo Sims”.
The winner will receive a Miss Bay City sash and crown and a new car donated by ADudeNamed Anthony. The contest will be judged by a panel of preselected judges and the winner will be chosen based on best attire, best answers to the MC's questions, and best gesture.
The master of ceremonies is Pygar Bu.
This contest is on a G sim and contestants will act and dress accordingly or be disqualified and asked to leave immediately.
The contest is to be held during the "Hot Bay City Nights" event at the Bay City Fairgrounds.
Please contact Ever Dreamscape with any questions.
By attending this event you agree that the Bay City Alliance or any of its members are NOT to be held responsible for hurt feelings, sour grapes, or basically anything at all.

Automakers:
This August, Bay City will bring together the best of Second Life's™ vintage and classic car designers in one place, where we can be wowed by designs that best typify Bay City's theme: the American urban experience, between 1940 and 1965, perhaps best typified by Chicago circa 1950 and marked by a distinct deco influence.
There is NO entrance fee: we are providing this as a service, and to highlight vintage and classic vehicles within our community. We will be having kiosks out for Child's Play Charity.
You will be provided with a space in the Bay City Fairgrounds, in the North Channel region, from August 24- September 1st to present the best in vintage and classic cars. A "gas station" and other amenities will also be provided for possible use. There may also be a few other related events and goodies to announce as time goes on.
While you are not required to do so, you are asked to consider this a prime spot to unveil new, mid-century designs, rather than only pull from existing stock. You are also encouraged, but by no means required, to consider providing a free or low cost giveaway item (this need not be a full car, but could be automotive related items, racing helmets, or what not) for visitors to the event that they may give out at their stall. Prim limits for stalls will be generous, though we are as of yet working out the specific amount.
For more information contact Marianne McCann.

Breaking!
Runaway Kids Found Safe at Camp!!!

We lost a couple of our fav Bay City kids earlier this month. While residents formed a search party, a letter was received that explained the whole mistake. The kids had gone off to summer camp. We are quite glad to report the children safely back at home and business back to usual in Bay City!
Here is the letter:
(written by ADudeNamed Anthony… not a kid)

Hello Muddah, hello Fadduh,
Here I am at....Camp Linenuduh
Camp is very....entertaining
and they say we'll have some fun when things start rezzing.

I went hiking....with Joe Spanding
He developed....rubber banding
You remember....Leonard Resident
He has just made a threat on the LL president.

All the counselors....hate the servers
And the lake has....many griefers
The head avi.....doesn't deserve us.
So he reads to us from something called Terms of Service.

Now I don't want....this is my fault
But my bunkmate...is my new alt.
You remember...Billy Onassis.
Every time he crosses a sim line, he always crashes.

TP me home, oh muddah fadduh, TP me home, I hate this region.
Don't leave me...out in a sandbox..... where.... I might.... get Ruthed and lose my hair.
TP me home, I promise I will not use voice or rez large prims with
other boys, oh please don't make me stay, I've been logged on one..whole..day.

Dearest fadduh (resident), darling muddah (resident),
How's my precious....little bruddah (resident)?
TP me home...if ya miss me
I will even let your love HUD hug and kiss me.

Wait a minute, particles stopped rezzing,
Guys are posing, guys are gesturing,
Playing greedy greedy, gee that's that,
Muddah Fadduh kindly disregard this IM chat.
