The dates have been set, the wings have been practicing, and the riders have been stretching reaaal good. It is a sign that it must be time for another installment of a InterWeyr Games!
The beaches and clearings of Southern Continent are being set up for a variety of friendly (and not-so-friendly) competitions ranging from foot races to surfing competitions to aerial acrobatics, all to find out which Weyr reigns supreme! The events are scattered throughout an entire sevenday at various times (August 24-30th) with a final closing ceremony with a feast and drinks to celebrate the true nature of the games, cooperation between the weyrs!
So Riders, start your dragons and prepare for the games. Non-riders, we need you too! We need lots of unbiased, unbribe-able judges to help out with the games. And we need an audience to perform to as well (not to mention plenty of people to enjoy the food and drink of the celebration), so catch a ride adragonback and join us!
OOC: The events are scattered throughout the week, for more information on the events offered including dates and times, see below. If you want to compete in an event, contact the person listed for the event for more information or to sign up. If you aren't a rider and still want to participate in the games, we openly welcome NPCs to join in the fun, so @send/page the contact if you'd like to do that with the name of the dragon/rider pair as well as what weyr you'd like to be from. Also, we need judges, so if you are interested in that @send the contact and they'll get you situated.
