[10:02 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: People seem to arrive late and depart early. Please don’t be offended but as leader I will try to keep the meeting going. We don’t repeat things for latecomers – a log is posted on our blog after the meeting. This is not a place for public debate – this is a helpful place. we all help each other slive an aquatic lifestyle.
[10:02 AM] Marion Sopwith (Marion698 Resident): tala zo
[10:02 AM] Miranda Barrowstone: Because we usually have good attendance – please take a moment to remove all extra attachments and huds. We’d like you to dress low lag. Big poofy hair and jewelry are big culprits, as are bubbles, script things, huds, and such. If we all cooperate, more merfolk can participate with less crashing. Thank you for your help with this.

[10:20 AM] Saiyge Lotus: You would have to find clothing that isnt rigged from the pelvis down I think – more than the tail.
[10:20 AM] ᴄʜᴇᴇᴋʏ ʙɪsᴄᴜɪᴛ (Neve Nebula): Zantyago – for a mesh tail, riptide is the best to wear with clothing. I can wear a swim suit and bikini bottoms with this tail

[10:26 AM] Zantyago Mannonen: i found a good wheel chair but only on club

according to or ordered by canon law.
“the canonical rites of the Roman Church”
included in the list of sacred books officially accepted as genuine.

[10:36 AM] ZoZo Merrow: This is day 2 of Secondlife Pride event that runs June 9th to 18. Echo was so kind to revamp the booth and bring our sign-age up to date. Echo installed a beautiful waterfall with 3 shells to sit. I am so happy about the support from mers so far. It is fun hanging with each other looking all sexy. The music is also awesome. We also got 5 mer on the land based dance floor last night. Feel free to come over and hang out. The goal is to promote mer life and SFW, and to never bad mouth anyone. Mer folk are the most friendly bunch in SL.
I have been able to give out the new SWF notecard to a few visitors interested in mer life.
Please think about donating to the cause if you are able.
The pride event also offers many events. I have friends that perform shows there that are awesome.
Most of all thank you to all the volunteers that have and have committed to hang out at the booth.

Yala everyone!

Would you like to get to know the SWF hangouts better or just fancy a swim? Please come to the SWF Chat Pavilion Wednesdays at 4:30 pm slt. or take this mer taxi. Lusa em!
