    Oh I am so sorry to have missed this, I did want to attend but our flights were delayed and we ended up coming home on Monday in the wee hours of the morning. :( I will try to make the next one! I hope everyone had a great time.

    ~ Sue.

    I had to reset the day Bianca. Had a family emergency. On the plus side with that behind me, and our move over I will have more time to get things set.

    Just a friendly reminder, don't drink and drive. Use a designated helmsman!

    All fine now Pandy, just another of life's little bumps.

    And Aneirin, we must drink and sail, otherwise what will the Pirates have to do?

    Okay folks, this is the Saturday. Should prove interesting day for me as my kinship is also holding Weatherstock the same day in Lotro.
    [​IMG]
    It is an all day event that goes through till midnight. I am working security, but can take the time off needed for the boat race.

    Okay Prizes

    The winner will receive 1 million gold pieces and something I found in the chest in my house.
    Second place- 500,000 gold pieces and something else from that same chest.
    3rd place-250.000 gold pieces and yeah, some chest junk.

    Racers are encouraged to drink as much as they want before the race (drinking is mandatory)
    Only old style UO boats allowed, (ie dragon ships)
    other than that no rules apply. Win the race in any way you can.

    Racers will pick up a case containing wine at the Abbey, they must then load it onto their boats and set sail for Skara, Once there they must deliver the wine to the Yew rep on the docks and pick up their signed ledger showing the wine was delivered, They then must sail back to Yew and be the first off their boats to win.






    If this all goes well I plan to hold a no holds barred prates race in the near future. (Kill the other team and scuttle their ship to win)

    This is tonight folks, I will be at The Abbey. With this being the weekend of father's day I hope some can make it. If not, I will hope to catch up with you at a future event.
    To all the daddy's out there I wish a Happy Father's Day.

    Awww missed it, sorry Aedon my friend but my father in law was celebrated for Father's Day on Saturday so the whole family went out to spend the afternoon, then dinner, with him. He (and my brother in law --- who was spending today at a Tattoo shop) wasn't going to be around today.

    No worries Pandy, When it suddenly hit me that this was the weekend of Father's Day I fully expected a sparse turn out.

    It was pretty fun.. my first boat race.

    The monks had some very good wine to offer, they certainly haven't lost their touch ...

    Then it was off to the race!
    At first it seemed like I had lost from the very start, but near the Skara Brae docks I caught up with him and it was neck and neck the rest of the way back.
    I think Va'lis used his gangplanks to get just a touch more wind because I was ahead of him at the halfway back mark.. however he managed to squeeze
    by me at the end and take the first place prize.
    Well sailed Va'lis!

    Looking forward to the next one!
