Luna Fairgrounds, Malas, Chesapeake (PaxLair Times) – April 24, 2012 – by Ashlynn – Unfortunately I arrived late to the Solstice Fair that took place yesterday evening just outside of Luna and only caught the last two events. I believe some spiritual force or creature was intent on keeping me from visiting through the use of a Confusion Potion-Ale. Or perhaps I just mixed up my dates. As in time, not fruit.
The Drinking Contest
As I arrived everyone was in the process of getting horrendously drunk. I assumed it was just a party or celebration at first, what with all the terrible singing and such. Turns out there was a contest in progress! Fortunately, being the only one not drunk at the time, I can tell you who won.
Congratulations to Lady Falbala of Dragons Watch and her cast iron stomach.
A test of marksmanship followed marred only by the fact that most of those present were not marksman and were not permitted any magical aid. I opted not to enter as bow strings are bad for my nails and I prefer the help of my pink faerie bow.
The format was single elimination with participants paired off until only one remained. Contestants each got three arrows to shoot per round. There was no prize for high score (although I believe Badger took that title with 160 points!). Oh and they had to perform in only a skirt and shirt. Very fashionable!
After several rounds, the final came down to Badger and Andromaque both of Dragons Watch, where Andromaque proved himself the better shot on the day. For his performance, he was informed he would receive his very own trophy placed within the Hall of Victory on the crumbling continent. Congratulations!
