    It was the lucrative walrus hunt that helped to establish early northern Britannia, and give life to the sea trade. Now as it’s getting cold out and we see the first snow of the season, the traditional date for the Walrus Festival fast approaches.

    Details at the LS EM site.

    Here are a few unfortunate people trying their luck at wrestling Wally, the festival mascot. The rules are, they had to be naked and get drunk first. All died within 5-7 seconds, some as quick as 1.5 seconds, until finally we got a winner. Fraggle, who was able to take on Wally indefinitely with a series of mirror images:

    Was great drunken fun! Thanks to all who came out!
