    Greetings everybody!

    Thank you all for participating in the inaugural Brittany Fort fishing competition! 106 fishers participated turning in hundreds of fishies and one banana by a Monkeysmack! I hope you enjoyed some relaxing casual fishing at your leisure after all your dangerous adventuring in New Britannia!

    The goal of the competition was to have some casual fun, reaching people that might have not fished before, and providing a fun way to earn the gold necessary for an entry into the home decorating contest, especially for new arrivals that don't have 100,000 gold.

    Thanks to everyone that helped in even the smallest way, from @Araminis Darkblade, @Aershalt and @Justyn04 supplying me with plenty of bags for storing and sorting fishies to @redfish running around New Britannia inviting people to participate and always creating fishing groups for people to join, to all the Twitch streamers, including @Alpha Fishstick, @TaiKee Vetrae, @Flair and @Kabalyero Kidd. If anyone else streamed please let me know, these are the ones I found searching for Brittany Fort videos. Thanks to @Justyn04 for her meowy entertaining music broadcast on the final night. And thanks to @CICI for donating additional prizes!

    If you helped in any way, please let me know and I will update. I don't want to miss anyone.

    There is an awards party in planning, where the prizes will be officially awarded and random prizes will be rolled for, but if you'd like your prize now just let me know and I will send it to you immediately.

    If you would like any of the fishies back that you turned in please let me know and we can go through the fishy bags and pull them out. Approximately 300 fishies were turned in!

    The next competition will include categories for every fishy type, which I think will make it more interesting, and there is going to be an ongoing 100,000 gold prize for anyone that breaks the current record at any time - no running competition necessary! Just fish any time and if you beat the current #1 fishy you get 100,000 gold!

    The top ten fishies are nicely displayed in the center of the Brittany Fort Inn and public crafting tables on the Shroud of the Avatar rug for everyone to admire. The fishies from the other 96 entrants are in the bag on the coffee table. Below is a photo. The fishies seem to be going after the banana in the middle! When taking the photo, Shadowmaker assured me that his dog Mr Tinny does not like fishies, hopefully he does not like bananas either.

    Since mounting the fishies ruins their names, I'm not going to mount the top ten fishies until after that issue is fixed.

    Sincerely,

    Governor Sonja Solar

    Dear Alpha Fishstick,

    I really appreciate your enthusiasm for fishing! You're the one that got me started fishing myself at the Fishing Expedition a while ago and are responsible for making it fun! I never thought I would fish, and now it's my highest skill. I also greatly appreciate your help in promoting the Brittany Fort fishing competition and hopefully getting many more people interested in trying out some fishing too! Rumors are spreading throughout New Britannia that you did a 24 hour long fishing livestream, and on your birthday noless? I don't think anyone has ever accomplished a 24 hour fishing livestream in Shroud of the Avatar before, and certainly nobody has livestreamed 24 hours on their birthday!

    Your dedication to Shroud of the Avatar fishing continues to amaze me! Now I think I nearly completely understand why you're called the Alpha Fishstick.


    Sincerely,

    Governor Sonja Solar

    @Sonja ,

    I remember that day fishing with you at the Fishing Expedition, we had just learned the Viking Dance from another angler and a few of us had a wonderful time dancing and fishing on the beach. The rumors of a 24 hour-long fishing stream are true and I want to say that this was not intentional. But, the experience is incredible! I’ll share my experience with you!

    That morning I said my usually “Hello Everyone!” when I logged on. You were very excited to tell me about the Brittany Fort Fishing Contest. So, of course, I had to check it out. When I got to Brittany Fort, I inspected the Fish Submission Sack and found that no fish had been submitted..

    I started up my Twitch Stream and invited the 3 viewers I had to fish. We listened to music while fishing and had a great time! The viewer count increased to nearly 15. There was a second fishing party created and soon the Submission Sack was getting its own attention. A few, Twitch hosts and raids later, we had nearly 30 people fishing.

    This was the first real big stream for me. I had an awesome time explaining the contest rules, describing how to fish, and how to get to the docks. Plus, it was a really great way to spend my birthday!

    The contest is still ongoing, I estimated there are about 30-40 unique submissions obtained of the 150 participants requested. I will continue to pop in and out to support the really great contest you’ve organized. Thank you again!

    Cheers,

    Alpha Fishstick

    @Tellana made a lovely video of the 1st Brittany Fort Fishing Event top 10 winning fishies and banana and enjoyed reading the book to everybody on her stream! Her video brought back some of the most wonderful times I've had in Britannia. ❤
