Sunbeamer and Roos Air Show

 Saturday May 29 was one of the Relay for Life's Sunbeamer team's main annual events: the Sunbeamer Air Show at Farshore Field in Sunlight Bay. For the past few years, it's been known as the Sunbeamer and Roos Air Show, due to "Roos With a Dream" taking part. The event was from 9AM to 5PM.
 There were planes flying, and numerous warplanes on display at the airport. There was also bicycle blimp racing, the course set up by Shockwave Yareach and Cynthia Farshore. 

There were also balloon tours of the area, courtesy of Skylark"Snowbuns" Lefavre. Other attractions included carnival games and rides, shooting at the dunk tank with a German 88, bumper cars, and more.
 The high point was at 3PM when DJ Kalaya and a number of the 'Roos got on stage, dancing away, with numerous Sunbeamers and others in the audience dancing away, and sending donations into the kiosk. The two teams together would raise more than 60,000 Linden dollars that day, the totals announce by Cynthia.
Sunbeamer Airshow went well, We and the Roos would like to thank all that came and donated. We have totals of: Sunbeamers L$38,800 ; Roos L$28,050 for a two team effort of L$66, 850! Woot!

As of now, Team Sunbeamers has raised almost 655,000 Linden dollars, closing in on the next fundraising level. Roos With A Dream have raised just shy of 423,000. But both teams are far from finished. There are the Bid Me Events. There are the multi-team events like the Moon Dances every week and the Relaystock later this month. And of course in June there's the Relay Weekend when the teams walk around the track.

Go Sunbeamers! Go Roos! Go Relay!
