OpensimFest is less than two weeks away, and there's still a chance for you to be part of the fun!
Greeters organizer Snoots Dragon has a message for you
"TO EVERYONE: We are greatly in need of Greeters. This is an easy task and a great way to make new friends. We have a Greeters Guide notecard with quick-to-read information on being a Greeter. The job is easy: spend however much spare time you may have available at Central to help people if they have questions about the Festival. No schedule required; this is totally volunteer time. Please contact SNOOTS DWAGON either on Discord or by IM in-grid. Greeting is a fun and relaxing way to spend time at the Festival... and we could use your help. This is all in the promotion of science, and at the end of the Festival, there will be cake. Thanks!"

Like any grid, OpensimFest would be nothing without the tech person keeping it safe, fast, and accessible

No, seriously, here are the limits to what's allowed behavior at OSFest. It's serious business.
If the builds are the heart of OpensimFest, then the musical performances are its soul, so who better to organize the performers than the Fairy Godmother of soulful tunes of every genre, Rosa Alexeev.

Greeters needed for OpensimFest! It's an opportunity to help out in a fun way. Who's running the Welcome crew? Read about Rob here:
Do you need a nice building in which to show off your creations/merchandize at OSFest?
Making mesh that fits the limits of the grid can be challenging but Luna Lunaria has kindly provided a solution!
" Fits the 64 x 64 and is full perms so that you can size it to your parcel and do with whatever you like. You can find it at the main landing as well as the landings for Oxygen, Sulphur, and Fluorine. Feel free to share it" - Luna Lunaria
