I took many more shots than could be shown for the Kickoff article. This one that I took just a few minutes after porting over, most everyone looked grey or clouded. The whole place spelled L-A-G.
RacerX Gullwing was soon identifiable, him being a "unique bunny."
And here's three from the Steelhead Salmons, from left to right Softpaw Summer, Fuzzball Ortega, and Eugenia Burton.
And after the Kickoff officially ended, some left, others hung around a little to chat.

Looking further away from the center auditorium, three of the four sims had crashed. All that was open to me was RFL Past. Not far away was this dinosaur.
There was also this Egyptian maze. I ended up going back out the entrance.
And as time went on, I dropped in on a few of the events that weekend. Here's the Road Rash Relayers group having a small bash.
The Pure Heart team held a larger Adel live concert. I ran into Breezes again.
Then I got a message from Fuzzball, "Message from 'The Hair:' Join me at Steelhead's RFL Kick Off Party. Starting.....Now."
And yep, Fuzzball had the infamous "The Hair," from a RFL bet last year.
Gimme head with hair,
long beautiful hair,
shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen,
Gimme down to there, hair,
shoulder length or longer,
here baby, there mama,
everywhere daddy daddy,
At the Heroes for Life stage, singer Wytchshisper Sadofsky gave a performance.
"Called a torch singer by some and a freaky fairy by others I have a jazzy, alternative, oldies, demented, pop, rock, happy in the pants sound! I love requests ~ please remember you are a huge important part of my show that way. All proceeds to benefit RFL of SL!"
It was a big start to the "Time for a Cure" season. More events have happened since, such as the Passionate Redheads kickoff at the Palace of the Sun. And many exciting things will happen, culminating to the Relay Weekend in June with The Walk.
