Rainy River Tribe - Trade Fair May 26th 2012

The trade fair hosted this weekend at Rainy River was a great success. From the ambiance and aesthetics, to the food stall. Attendees were given the opportunity to take part in all the games advertised, forming as teams or playing as individuals as they tried to win the incredible prizes on offer by the hosts.
So without any further delay I am pleased to announce the winners as follows;

Lighthouse Long Jump
No one managed the full distance, so the record remains unbroken however we awarded the competitors based upon the furthest jump.
1st Place - With a jump of 885.54 BrittneyReece – Winning a full set of Supreme Artisan/Master tools.
2nd Place – With a jump of 878.15 – Alest – Winning a Supreme Weapon
3rd Place – With a jump of 877.81 – Lucky – Winning a Supreme Weapon
All other contestants also won a Supreme weapon.

Rainy River Relay - The teams were as follows;
Team 1 - Pirate

Team 2 - XISM

Team 3 - Rainy River Runners

The winners were;
1st Place - Team XISM – Each winning a 15 Slot Handcart
2nd Place – Team Pirate – Each winning a 5 Slot Handcart
3rd Place – Rainy River Runners – Proving that taking part is everything 

Yeni was the only one to successfully hit Chunky and won a Master quality Weapon.
Treasure Hunt
1st Place – Alest – Winning a set of Supreme Artisan/Master Tools
All other contestants were handed a Supreme Weapon for taking part.

Basket Shuffle
The three winners of the basket shuffle were

Lastly Rainy River Tribe would especially like to thank all those that attended the Fair, making it a fun and rewarding experience for the hosts as much as the attendees. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves :) A heartfelt thanks for attending everyone!

Special Thanks to Raguel, GuideIsda, GuideAzrael & GuideMihr for all the teleports and assistance. Even more so GuideMihr who took the amazing screenshots while the event took place.
Extra special thanks to all the Rainy River tribe members that attended and helped make the event run smoothly and great fun for all.
A big thanks goes to Creator for adding to the fun with his special Basket Shuffle :) Pesonally i think -10 is a valid guess heh!
