RFL Sunbeamer's "Bid Us Squirels"

 The Relay's Team Sunbeamers are at it again. Every year, the team has done a number of "Bid Me" events, inspired by the Relay Rockers' "Bid Me Bald." But instead of losing our hair, the vict- er, volunteer goes through a period of time in a different look.  Over the years, we've had people go skunk, deer, human, bunny, mouse, panda, pink, and even "Bid Me Pantsless." 

But this time, the team is doing something different.
While couples have taken part in "Bid Me" events before, they've done so in separate ones, the guy taking on one look and the girl the other. This time, we have a couple doing a joint challenge: Bixyl and Charlee Shuftan (Charlee Snowfox) in "Bid Us Squirrels."

The fundraiser is taking place at Club Cutlass in Sunweaver Bay (114/117/757), in the room behind the dance floor. Like other Bid Me events, there are two kiosks. To make Bixyl and Charlee a pair of black squirrels, donate to the kiosk on the right. For every 5000 Linden dollars donated, rounded down, they'll be having an appetite for acorns for a week. To keep the couple their normal foxy selves, there's a default kiosk on the left. If it's higher at the conclusion of the Bid Me, the couple stay as they are. 9999 Lindens would mean one week as "tree rats," while 10,000 L would mean two.

So why black squirrels? Well, one commented this way, they'd be great ninja squirrels at night, "They'll never see us coming when we go after their nuts."
The event goes on to Saturday April 13 at 8PM SL time, at which time the totals are made final and it's announced how long the volunteers need to be in their new looks. Word has it Rita is getting a supply of hazelnut coffee to wake up in the morning.
At the writing of this article, the totals are currently 21,315 Linden dollars in the squirrel kiosk with 250L for the default. So if you want to make Second Life's foxy reporter and Club Scorn's foxy DJ a couple of nut jobs a little longer, come on over and donate.

Once again the kiosks are at Club Cutlass in Sunweaver Bay (114/117/757).
