(Including those perverted pirates – we’re all-inclusive! =^-^=)
[12:04 PM] Sapphira Franizzi: Unfortunately, we don’t have time to repeat for those who arrive late and/or depart early, but that’s okay, we post a meeting log on our website later – that would be http://www.swfsl.com – remember, our motto is Mer helping aquatics be dragons! Oh wait…

[12:10 PM] Sapphira Franizzi: INTRODUCTIONS

Do we have any new merfolk? If you are new, say hi! No need for IMs or speakers order, just a few words will do. We’re interested to know maybe how you found SWF? Is there anything you love about being aquatic? What’s your favorite food – mine’s shrimpie snacks btw, and Antiquity’s kelp cakes are also bomb! Oh wait… I digress =^-^=
[12:10 PM] Sapphira Franizzi: so this is where I usually run this segment in a more chill way
[12:10 PM] Sapphira Franizzi: If any of you have brought a guest with you today, yay! You can also introduce them, if they’re okay with it. If you’re shy and don’t prefer the spotlight, that’s okay too. Some of us prefer to just come and chill out in the company of their fellow aquatics… =^-^=
[12:10 PM] Sapphira Franizzi: no obligations or pressure
[12:11 PM] Granny Grace (Matriarch Mermaid): I’m Grace, love shrimp and Antiquity Kelp Cakes and not new

[12:50 PM] Sapphira Franizzi: This meeting is now adjourned. Remember our SWF goals:

  • to assist those considering an underwater life
  • to increase awareness in the general public that there is an underwater option
  • to make mer resources (events, projects, groups, retailers, sims, designers) visible and easily accessible
  • to assist, as possible, with the viability of mer resources so they may continue to be available to the community
  • to promote the conservation of rl oceans, lakes and waterways and the nature that relies on them
