Second Life CASSIE HALLOWEEN PARTY 2010


.-..-. - .... .. ... / .. ... / -- -.-- / .--. .- .-. - -.-- / -. --- .-- .-..-.

Cassie said to "come and get it."
Those who did cannot forget it.
The virgin and the Beast have gone,
but Cassie's Watchers party on.




From: Ahcapella:

Announcing the FOURTH ANNUAL CASSIE HALLOWEEN / REZ MONTH PARTY IN SECOND LIFE!

Can you believe that it's actually been four whole years since Cassie lured us to Second Life? Well, CodesInto Serapis may be gone, but the memories and her red roses live on in our hearts and SL inventories, respectively. Join us as we reminisce about being assaulted with anagrams, discombobulated with drops, and hopelessly hooked on various LG15/Cassie forums during the months of September and October in 2006.
(Halloween costume optional. Dancing cows will be made available upon request.)

Date: Saturday, October 23, 2010.
Time: 10pm, Central Standard (Daylight Savings) Time.
Place: Second Life, Kane (156, 47, 25), Gothinger Forest Christian Church*
* - AKA "the Cassie church"



HOW TO GET THERE
If you haven't been on Second Life for a while, you may need to download a current SL viewer. Many people prefer this one:
