Before the start of the events, Jack Callow was once again Honored by San Andreas and CNT as Lieutenant Governer Karmen Strike delivered this speech in a key to the city.
It’s all fun and games until somebody goes to Court. The winter games started their Inception several months ago when large quantities of hard alcohol found their way into new businesses in the state. I also found a severe lack in certain kinds of sports, including those that would be more competitive and equal when everybody was given the same equipment. A test of skill and not craftsmanship is what I desired to create. I was privileged at one point to do some coverage of the triathlon that was put on by The Blackwood Saloon and Angelica Carlisle. After seeing the turnout and the positive response, I decided it would be fantastic to try something like that differently. (Sorry about the lack of photos some person drives were corrupted before upload to the CNT servers)
Knowing that I wanted to utilize the alcohol and the bicycles together and talking to many people about the project, their desires for certain activities arose again and again and again. By this time, something new occurred; the great Alamo Sea in the center of San Andreas had frozen over. Heading out there on my bicycle, I realized the great potential that open empty plane end slippery service the lake could provide.
I had already begun seeking out those that would be willing to sponsor such an event especially under H.R. 053 – The Event Fund Allocation Act of 202. As such, it seemed that the government mighty provided Help as long as it included Little to no profit, A connection with the people to the government, and employment of the government staff. However, pursuing that route, the reality dawned. It seems like the only events that were allowed were those that were proposed by the government.
By that time, I had already decided we could do more and that we should do more. I banded with Shadowcade in order to get their famous “game over” shot of hard alcohol. Then I partnered with Blood Night Bouts Boxing League to do drunken boxing after the wasted cycling event, and then I reached out to businesses willing to help run and repair vehicles for a demo derby. Harmony repair answered the call and requested that we do a drag race then as well. Fantastic, except we had no money.
For those that don’t know, CNT primarily makes its money from advertisements. Costs such as buildings and security and vehicle maintenance take a big toll on a business whose primary mode does not make them any funds. So in conjunction, we were very lucky to have found an importer for certain CNT merch items. Taking my funds when above cost and sinking my own time and money, yes I had to go out in mine in order to make it work, I decided it was time to take a leap and just do the event without Funds from the government.
December 18th, I can clearly say that I am very happy Santa came to town just a little early. After stressing and worrying and building a plan to have no support and continue with these events no matter what happened certain members of the public works department and the government pulled through for CNT. In a humbling display of ingenuity, they created a boxing ring and a drag race out on the ice. The compacted snow & gravel were just enough to spread out the wait for the concrete barriers they also used. The Frozen Alamo Sea far from acting flimsy with the extra weight seemed stronger than ever.
The wasted cycling event and the blood night bouts drunken boxing event will go down as some of the best times on the ice that I can ever have, and for those that participated and enjoyed all the craziness that came out of it, it is certainly something to say that we have done such a thing. Highlights are for sure we’re watching our two glorious state representatives James Nark in his all-red Canadian Attire, and the other Mohn Nash dressed up as one Impotent Rage duking it out in the boxing ring, not just against each other but also against Merrill Ford of the blood night boxing League and Dan White announcer and member of Public Works. That all-out heels first fight, made all the struggle of planning just a little bit more worth it. So I looked forward to the 19th and the demo derby.
By day things are looking up, Harmony repair in the Lost MC showed up in force to be able to provide support for the event. Gathering on the dock across from Boathouse, we realized we had a severe lack of attendance. Not too many people were showing up. We looked around and called friends trying to figure out what was going on and that’s when we found out, that Somebody went to court. Normally a rather mundane affair apparently this court case and captured the public eye and a lot of the people who were expected to participate in our wonderful winter games. Something had to be done.
So I went down my phone started scrolling through the businesses and then it clicked with me. The people working at Boathouse were Alone there and not participating in this event that was so close by. This needed to change, I went over there, talked with a couple of the guys, and we both came to a conclusion, and wouldn’t it be great if Boathouse challenged Mosley’s to the demo derby. The event was on hold due to a lack of participants starting to gain speed people were getting anxious to get this thing going.
The Challenge was issued. After trying to reach people at Mosley’s, I started getting calls from Teddie Barlewe the owner, “What the hell is this he said you trying to call me out for not showing up, “No I said, Boathouse called you out.”. “What the hell will fight them with fists anytime they want, but I don’t have the right vehicles for demo derby. Anytime they want it, I’ll challenge them to 50k Fistfight their team versus ours” And said all right, they challenged you today is if you can’t meet it, they’re going to brag about it. Luckily all on Honor wasn’t lost for them; Mosley’s auto body decided to take up the call.
They rushed up to join the demo derby and join the fight. Unfortunately, as Teddie had kind of predicted, they Lost. However, it was a glorious battle; the crashing of their vehicles sounded out over and over and over, and not all the honor goes to the victor. However, now it seems Mosley’s has challenged Boathouse to a fistfight. Only Time Will Tell if the Boathouse can answer. It’s all fun and games till somebody goes to court.
