WORKSHOP:  Newbie Trivia followed by Spring dance

PRESENTER: Riptide Furse

This will be a trivia event about topics covered in Newbie 101,  basic info of the DEN in SL and things Newbies need to know.  Linden dollars (the ONLY currency used in SL) will be awarded.  This is a great way for new arrivals to earn some spending money (and you can check with me, Laelia, as to where to send that cash!).  After the Trivia event stay for our spring fling dance. Dance and socialize with the DEN in SL.

TIME: 5:00 p.m. SLT (8:00 p.m. EST)

The presenter will be using voice.  Please arrive 15 minutes early if you would like some help setting up and testing voice before the session begins.
