LETTER OF THANKS

FROM EXODUS AND FAMILY
Exodus Karu

Shorah,

As some of you have heard my real life family has had some problems recently . We would like to take this time to thank everyone for their support and guidance. It helped tremendously. It is warming to know who our real family is 🙂 and we are doing much better now. Most of us have many issues in life, but it is always good to know that we can turn to each other. Thank you again from me and my family.

Sincerely,
The Family of Exodus

Not only will you play a mystery game, if selected, but you will also be participating in a research study and a survey. “This research is a Federally funded research project being conducted by Rosa Mikeal Martey (Colorado State University), Jennifer Stromer-Galley (University at Albany, SUNY) and Mia Consalvo (Ohio University)… For this research, we need to observe and record real people doing different things in spaces like Second Life, World of Warcraft, and Final Fantasy so that we can better understand what people do during their game play. We’re recruiting people to help us by spending some time in Second Life with other participants and doing some simple group activities. This will require between 2 and 3 hours of your time. All of your actions and conversation in Second Life during the session will be recorded for the study.”

$5000L will be given to those completing the study. Fill out the form to enroll and wait for an email to see if you have been selected for the study. Thanks, Tichelle for the heads up on this very interesting oportunity.

BUILDERS BREWERY – ARCHITECTURAL AUCTION

Builders Brewery presents a benefit auction for the Frank Lloyd Wright Virtual Museum

Auction starts June 5, 1:00 PM SLT, and ends June 12, 6:00 PM SLT

Auction Location at the Builder’s Brewery Builder Resource sim: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Builders%20Resource/110/11/23

*Just added, an Architecture Auction Freebie Hunt! Several creators have donated accessories and textures, plus there are some barrels hidden around the sim and in the homes with some cool free items, with more being added all the time.

Here’s your chance to bid on some of Second Life’s finest homes and select accessories.  All proceeds from the auction go directly to the Frank Lloyd Wright Virtual Museum (FLWVM) capital campaign.  The FLWVM is licensed by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, at Taliesin West, in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Some of Second Life’s most beautiful homes and accessories will be on full display for one week, for you to browse, drool over, and bid!

Rosalie Oldrich, Assistant Director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Virtual Museum in Second Life,  says, ” I believe the Auction will kick off the museum’s capital campaign with a bang! We are planning ahead to purchasing a new sim and paying the tier charges once we have been awarded non profit status by the IRS. Then the museum will be able to double its size and provide more models of Mr. Wright’s work.

We are also looking for volunteers to fill such positions as Archivist/Librarian, Activities Scheduler, Docents/Greeters, Master Level Builders, Script Tech, Membership Coordinator to name a few. Just drop me a note card if you are interested.”

Entertainment will be provided at the Frank Lloyd Wright Museum sim http://slurl.com/secondlife/Usonia/79/79/22 on Saturday, June 12 from 12 PM to 2 PM Burning Taiko, a percussion troupe offering unique live stage performances of drumming traditions from Latin American, Native American, African and Japanese cultures, will perform.

BIDDING:

Please explore all the amazing items available for auction! The creators will have information available—along with landmarks—to see more of their quality work.

If you wish to bid, take that item’s note card, and read it to confirm what will be included with your winning bid.  The current high bidder on each item will pay the bid amount from their account at the time of the bid.  If you are subsequently outbid, your money will be returned immediately.

All bids are final.  When the event ends, all items will be delivered to the appropriate winners.
