The Raglan Shire Tiny Olympics entered its 2nd week of competition & WOW what a weekend!
Before the events started back up on Saturday & Sunday, Everyone was invited to Attend an Olympic Ball thrown by Purkle team Captain Legolas & Bloodwynna who DJ’ed for the Ball as well. Members from all teams came decked out in team colors & uniforms as well as fancy tiny evening wear! Prizes were awarded, music was played & Tinys danced and generally had an uproarious time!
Saturday brought the return of the events!
Teams competed in the Cloudchaser Hurdles, a Giant Hurdles course set 750 meters in the sky! This event was held twice for folks in the various timezones. During the second run of the Cloudchase Hurdles, FLY was disabled meaning the competitors (as well as the spectators heh) had to be extra careful to time their jumps or risk falling to their doom below!
The Running Long Jump was marred by script failure and will be rescheduled but that didn’t deter the tiny teams spirits as they moved onto the Olympic Tiny Javelin Event! Tinys took turns throwing the javelin ( see above pic of Isis who took javelin Gold) and in the end, fun was had, nobody was impaled & it was time for the last event of the day.. The Tiny Archery Tournament!
Tiny Archers from all 3 teams competed and again, nobody was impaled or struck by stray arrows, after the opening rounds were finished, a tiebreaker was needed to determine the winner! It was very exciting 🙂
Sunday arrived with more spectacle!
At 11 am sharp, over half a dozen brightly colored hot air balloons with pilots & co-pilots from each team in each balloon rose high into the air from the Raglan Commons sim & began a race that took them over The Commons, Raglan Galaxy, Heron Shire, Morning Shire, Athen Shire & Raglan Shire Sims! It was a spectacular sight to see & per usual, all the teams were very competitive in this skill based event!
Afterwords it was time for the 2nd Annual Tour De Shire! An Olympic bicycle race utilizing Awors brilliant tiny bikes on a challenging course on the southern part of Raglan Shire. Obstacles on the course included a Large Mud Pit jump and a Vicious Spiked jump. Teams competed & throughout the event, you could hear the various team cheers & chants from all spectators in attendance!
Heres a video of the Tour De Shire done by Xerxes!
The final event of the day & the weekend was the Olympic Fisherbeast Fishing Tourney at Willow Creek on The Commons sim. With a throng of spectators on a platform next door on The Galaxy sim looking on and cheering their teams, the Competitors in the event itself battled it out in furious fishing action for an hour! Bloodsong ran the event & created special Olympic themed fish to catch for the teams! These Olympic fish are available to catch (if you can!) for anybody throughout the duration of the Tiny Olympics!
