    Hello Catskills. My name is Gareth and I help run an event called the "All Shards Tavern Night". The tavern night currently rotates between the Chesapeake and Baja shard. We have come up with an event for multiple shards to attend. The event is a Boat Race Challenge to towns on Baja, Catskills and Chesapeake. I am posting here to see which townships on Catskills would be interested in entering the race. The list of towns we have for your shard is what I have been able to dig up. If your township was overlooked I give my most sincere apology. It was not intentional. I will add you to the list if you send me a PM.

    The race will be held on Tuesday, June 01, 2010 at 10:20pm ET. This is our first attempt at trying such a event so we will be holding it on the Chesapeake shard. If things work out we hope to do similar events in the future. If a township is not interested we understand and will not hold it against you. For the towns that do wish to register simply send me a PM or post below here.

    Township Name:
    Contact Information:
    Ship Name:
    Captains Name:
    Crew names:


    Each town can only register one ship to represent them. You can have as many people on your vessel as you like but remember this is a race and you will be on a small ship. We will provide each team with a small ship on the Chesapeake shard.

    We will name each ship before hand _____________, My Town [Catskills]

    If you have any questions feel free to send me a PM, post a reply or icq me at 267944224.

    The towns listed below each shard does not mean they are participating. It is just to give us a general idea of how many towns we could have.

    As you can see... Red Skull Bay (United Pirates) are in.

    Even though I can't make it that late. Otherwise I'd sail under the Freehold of Everthorne flag!

    The rest of the Everthorne Crew are having issues which keep them away at the moment.

    So I'll just have to pass and root for Schuyler. After all, the Pirates are me primary life!

    I would like to thank Lord Gareth for organizing the race and the fine folks of Kijustsu Anei Village for playing host. Below are some quick screenshots I grabbed while piloting my ship. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who participated.

    Hey, no need to be the fastest, so long as there's one boat between us and whatever is chasing us, we're fine!
