A year has cycled by in Bay City and the reign of our first Miss Bay City, Angela Seale-Poultry, is coming to an end. Later today, a new MBC will be chosen during Hot Bay City Nights at the Bay City Fairgrounds (SLurl). The contest starts at 1pm SLT but drop in early if you’d like to enter so various guidelines can be explained and so you can check out the free car the winner gets.
The Poultry Report: Congratulations, Angela, on a full year as Miss Bay City! How does it feel to be a beauty queen?
Angela Seale-Poultry: Thank you, well, it’s not something that I ever expected to be, so I guess this leads to the excitement of Second Life. Here you can experience things that you never would have thought in Real Life.
TPR: What was the highlight of your reign?
APS: I would have say Mole day, and meeting so many Bay City residents, and being able to spread the community of Bay City, I never thought I’d meet so many wonderful people.
TPR: I’d have thought it might have been riding in a custom convertible during the 5th anniversary parade. What was that like, all those people waving at you and such?
APS: That was fun and everything was amazing, but it felt a bit… strange to me being the center of attention. I’m not a very “look at me” person in Real Life, so the fifth anniversary to me is really a blur of parade, party, meeting people, designing, shopping, and it was just a blur to be honest I sort of wish I had a video of it all so I could remember everything.
TPR: You are the first Miss Bay City ever? Pretty daunting task to set the precedents, right?
APS: Yes, and I wish I had been able honestly to have had more time available to set a much higher bar, and I hope that my successors will set a much higher bar than I did. I tried initially to set a very high bar, but I didn’t set it quite high enough for myself to be candid and I hope that Bay City gets a much better representative in it’s future Miss Bay City.
TPR: Any advice for the incoming Miss Bay City?
APS: Relax, absorb everything, meet everyone you can, go to every event you can, and enjoy the whirlwind year you are about to have. Take LOTS of pictures, make lots of memories, and have as much fun as you can.
TPR: Thank you, Angela, for your time today and for a great year as Miss Bay City!
APS: Thank you, and everyone remember that Bay City isn’t a person, it isn’t a place, Bay City is all of us, and we are in Second Life to have fun!
