    I really fell in love with the water platforms in the game. While some use them as water bridges and we are mostly using them as sunbathing/fishing docks, we wanted to formalize their usage with an event and encourage other POT owners to find creative uses as well.


    Basics

    6 color coded checkpoints
    Must get a pass from each 'color' to win.
    Fishing limited to the platform areas so understand about fished out areas
    No fishing on shores or outlying areas, its meant to compete for fish in some areas.


    1st Place 20 cotos or store credits
    2nd Place 10 cotos or store credits
    3rd Place 5 cotos or store credits


    I need a total of 6 platform judges to verify the incoming fishes and had out success passes. Each judge will receive 5 cotos or 5 dollars store credit for their aid. You must volunteer ahead of time for this, and will be required to wear a specific colored hat as shown in video.

    Video of concept



    Let me know of concerns or if you want to volunteer for 5 cotos for event.

    Dusk is setting on Diamond Fields as some Race Officials huddle prior to the derby.

    So our first place winner was @Wylex with a super turn around time because he was not so much an advanced fishermen he said and that might have helped him out on some of the cloth and leather requirements

    2nd Place went to @Mal Hari who while he had some bodily function issues, he managed to pull it all together.

    3rd Place when to @Sheamus McGuinness who gave us some wonderful dances in his victory celebration.

    We also gave away some unscheduled minor prizes to @lonewolf2 and @Norah East for their great role playing spirits during the event.

    I want to especially thank all my Derby Officials without whom this would not have been possible.
    @EclipseMaiden , @Alana Baran , @SteelCore , @Cypher Black , @Dalmore , and last but certainly not least @Wintermute of CoF

    I believe @Menchi also came and sat in a boat to allow folks to mentor under her GM fishing prowess, and didn't even compete and just donated time to help folks with fishing. So thanks for that.

    Little screenshot from near the reward handouts .. its hard to run event and do screenshots so best I got lol not all in the picture sorry, but can see some race officials, and even though event is over .. FOLKS ARE STILL FISHING!.

    FYI by the next one will have fishing GMed .. I ran out of time because when I got up at 6am, and I had a lovely email from my California contractor who is subpar it now seems and on a deliverable for today he says hey look done, and I spent 2 hours pointing out 40 defects which I am sure there are more that I haven't seen yet. Apparently I am the QA team for his contracted work (whistles)

    I will GM fishing for yall for next one.
