2 In-World entrepreneurs Thursday, 12th April – 10 am SLT/PST
3 University Scholars from the field of HCI, Communication, Marketing Thursday, 19th April - 10 am SLT/PST

I would appreciate your interest in participating. Please let me know which session you would like to attend.

Oyster Bay Sculpture Garden will hold the capstone event for its week-long Balloon Festival on Sunday, 1 April at 12 Noon and 5PM SLT (for both Euro and N. American balloonists) when we launch the balloons for a leisurely ride around the mainland waterfront. Over 15 balloons are already on exhibit, representing innovation and creativity in SL scripting, building and design. And it's kinda cool too!
