Bay City Post - December 2016

WELCOME to the sixty-third issue of the Bay City Post! - Keeping you updated on the best city on the Grid! Let's see what's happening in our fair city as December rolls around.

The biggest news this month, of course, was the coming of Primsmas! While Bay City has always enjoyed a double prim allowance, with the new increase residents can now do even more with their homes and shops. Just in time for some incredible holiday decorating! Speaking of decorations, there will be a Bay City Holiday Tour across the city on Thursday, December 22 at 4 PM SLT! We will run a guided tour of the best decorated parcels in the city, meeting up at a starting point , taking transportation from parcel to parcel, and showcasing each decorator's land and giving time for individuals to explore the parcel. We will end at the Bay City Fairgrounds for ice skating and hot chocolate! Bay City Residents - if you think your parcel is worthy of being a part of this tour, please contact Georgia Florence Sipe (lilaskyheart). Details to follow in a Bay City Alliance group announcement, so if you are not yet a member, now is the time to join!

Don't forget that tomorrow (December 3rd, 2016) is the Bay City Tree Lighting and Silent Auction (details in a full article below). Get your ice skates out and your bidding fingers ready, and we hope to see everyone tomorrow from 1-4 PM SLT on the Fairgrounds! For now, enjoy this month's articles by our amazing reporters (for new readers, these are located along the left sidebar) and a Happy Primsmas to one and all!

And Now, For Breaking News


New prim limits lead to increased production at ANWR, and aging tankers brought in to handle the load cause an environmental disaster! What more might we have to endure for these new limits?

This event is now celebrating its 7th Annual observance.

The Bay City Alliance will host its holiday Tree Lighting event TOMORROW, Saturday, 3rd December 2016 from 1-4 pm SL. The event will be held at the Bay City Fairgrounds, in North Channel and will feature DJ GoSpeed of KONA Stream, and live performers Christov Kohnke and Zachh Cale. The event will also feature ice-skating, dancing, refreshments and a lot of fun for everyone, as well as the annual lighting of our Christmas tree.

Once again, Bay City will host a silent auction to support Child's Play Charity.  Bay City is a Silver Sponsor of Child's Play Charity, having raised over US$2,000.00 to support the work of the charity.  Second Life™ designers and artists have generously agreed to participate by providing fun, interesting, unique, or other transferable items (or a no-copy object that the auction winner can give to you to redeem their prize, if the item(s) have to be no transfer). Please join us, check out the items, and BID, BID, BID!

The auction will end at the conclusion of the event. All proceeds from the silent auction and from donation bins at the venue will go to Child's Play Charity. Child's Play is a 501c3 non profit organization offers online communities such as ours an opportunity to help seriously ill children around the globe during their hospital stays with the purchase of games and gaming equipment.

Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab® and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest group for Residents of Bay City.


Until next time, Happy Holidays from all of us here at The Bay City Post!
