There are a host of fun things being planned including:
- A Sumptuous Feast,
- The "Silver Tongued Devil",
- Family/Kid centered games & crafts,
- Performance by the West Kingdom Choir,
- Silent Auction to benefit future events with Southern Shores,
- Viking Gift Exchange ($10-max per item),
- "Toys for Tots" donation opportunity (a NEW and unwrapped, unopened-in-the-original-box toy),
- Brick Spoon competition; subject is "Playing with Your Food" (create a food item that is edible and can also either be played with, or represents a game or a form of entertainment),
- The Infamous Table Decorating Contest; theme is "Birds of a Feather" (use either birds or feathers to help our Southern Shores Gull feel loved and all warm n'fuzzy for the Holidays).
- Playful fighter tourney with prizes and silly quests,
- Re-vamping of a few of last year's fun games and
- Some as yet to be determined revelry and/or classes.
- And last but not least, as JINGLES is now back on the menu, the Best Use of Bells competition is too!!!!! (bells on clothing, an item made out of bells, a decoration using bells, etc)...
UPDATE: Fighter Tourney Information:
Each fighter gets 3 bells to start and the "gallery" gets the rest...
Fighters will challenge each other "bear pit" style then go out on the field, etc...
If they lose, they have to give their bell to the winner.
When they've lost all their bells, they're either out OR can petition to the gallery for more. (in creative fashion, which becomes the silly part)
Ultimate winner will be the one with the most bells! He gets a prize and can sit at the High table with his consort...
We can also honor someone for endurance, best death, best skills, etc...
Prize has yet to be determined...
