Just a reminder, the Chesapeake Heart and Soul Festival as proclaimed by King Casca is being held Saturday, Feb 14th starting at 3 PM EST! - Today! The day will feature events all across the shard hosted by your fellow UO Chesapeake players! Presented by player-run towns, guilds and wonderful individuals, there's something for everyone! A Magic show, a looting race, pvp, an auction, a fashion show, and more, surely something for everyone and it's going on all day! The player-run town of Gyldenfeld is among those participating in the festival and will be hosting three events. Here is the info for the third event - A Horse Race! Time: 4:30 PM EST Start Location: Red Wolf Cafe in Gyldenfeld Event Host: Tancred RedStar Who will be the first to complete the arduous course across the realm? Complete details will be given at the cafe but here's some things you should know: All contestants are asked to meet at the Red Wolf Cafe by 4:30 pm EST and to bring a mount(non-ethereal, to keep it fair for all, and no Charger of the Fallen either!). Once everyone is lined up at the starting line, the signal will be given to begin the race. Contestants will then spur their mounts and race up the road from the Red Wolf Cafe to the Yew/Minoc crossroads, turn right(east) and ride til they hit the Minoc/Vesper crossroads before heading south, through the swamp and across the finish line at the Otter's Run Tap House in Guardian's Gate. Prizes to be awarded as follows:First place - 100,000 gold Second place - 50,000 gold Third place - 25,000 gold All contestants must remain on the road! Those trying to bushwhack through the forest may be disqualified! All along the course there will be race monitors ensuring everyone stays on the road. For spectactors, there will be a rune to the Otter's Run Tap House to use to go directly to the finish line and watch the exciting conclusion to the race. For complete details, including event times and locations be sure to check out the official Heart and Soul Festival website at: http://www.oceaneer.com/ChessyEvent/index.htm The Community Center in Skara Brae will have gates to event hots pots throughout the day, but if you wish to get to Gyldenfeld on your own, simply head west out of Britian, through the mountain pass until you reach the crossroads. Hope to see YOU there!
