BNN: Britannian Games - Day Two

Cheyne Aybara Jul 19 2000 10:23PM

A great interlude to the housing commission's open placement decrees this week, the Britannian Games are going strong in their second day of events. We are happy to announce the winner's from yesterday's archery competition, lumberjacking contest, and deer hunting competition.

A large turnout made their way to the Sturdy Bow in Yew for what proved to be a great archery event. Grizzly Carter and Lady Gwen Tiraste enlisted the help of Lightheart to get the competition under way. Individual athletes lined the walls of the Sturdy Bow waiting their turn to fire their five arrows into one of the two archery buttes, in hopes to be the best of six finalists to compete for the final prizes.

After a long grilling final showdown, Pikachu took home the first place spot for the Trammel facet of Britain with a score of 470 points in his two heats. Basso Cravie took home the second place title for the Felucca facet of Yew, while the Trammel facet of Yew was awarded third place in the name of local archer Mandirake. Unfortunately due to time restraints, the team archery competition was canceled and is up for review for being added to the next session of the Britannian Games.

The lumberjacking competition and the deer hunting competition took place at the same time last night. The teams gathered hides and logs arduously for an hour while Grizzly tallied their piles for their city's overall points.

When the wood results were totaled, the lumberjacking points for first place went to Britain (Trammel), second went to Moonglow (Trammel), and third to Vesper (Trammel). A total of 7000 logs were gathered in this event, all of which will be donated to the "Build A Better Yew" foundation.

After all the hides were counted, the hunting points for first place were awarded to Moonglow (Trammel). Second and third place went to Serpent's Hold (Trammel) and Delucia (Trammel), respectively. The hides that were gathered this night will be used in Saturday's tailoring competition, which will in turn be given to the needy families of Yew to provide warmth in the coming winter.

As with the previous night, winners walked away with prizes for themselves, as well as earned points for the city they represented. As of the end of the second day of competition in the Britannian Games, the points leaders are as follows:

First - Moonglow (Trammel)
Second - Britain (Trammel)
Third - Yew (Trammel)
