Operation
SCULimpics '99
SCULimpics 99 has now been declassified to Level D security. A large convoy rendez voused with civilians at prespecified coordinates in the Allston System. a makeshift arena was constructed and the games promptly commenced.

Everyone was allowed to participate, at their own risk, of course. Dozens of choppers were provided. Only choppers were allowed to participate in the events.


The 13 Events were as follows (tentatively in this order)

•Ghost Ride
Ride your bike then jump off it. Time is recorded from the moment you stop touching the bike to the moment the frame stops moving. Longest time wins.

Gold Medal: NONE
Silver Medal: NONE

•Chopper Haul
Two lines are drawn 20 yards apart. Pilot can have assistance in loading up as many frames as they dare. Once the pilot crosses the line they can not receive any help, and they must not let any of the bikes they are carrying touch the ground. No bungee cords, bags or fastening devices allowed. In case of a tie judges will decide which frames were more impressive to haul.

This is an event of strategy and strength.

Gold Medal: PazRokOne
Silver Medal: Tex
Bronze Medal: Toast

•Dodgeball
Players ride in a circle marked off with chalk. A gunner stands in the middle with cannonballs. The gunner throws the ball trying to hit people. Anyone who is hit is out. Anyone who leaves the circle is out. If a pilot catches the ball they may throw it at another pilot. Pilots who stay the longest in the circle win.

Most of the events in SCULimpics had never been tried before. This event sucked. It basically turned out to be Skunk in the middle of the field pegging anyone he felt like. The event was canceled.

Gold Medal: NONE
Silver Medal: NONE
Bronze Medal: NONE

•Jump




Take as much starting distance as you need. Jump over the ramp. Best distance wins. One jump per turn. Best of three tries. In case of a tie judges will choose based on difficulty of ship used and form.

The jump was designed by Skunk, and engineered and built by WalTor. It featured a hinge in the middle to allow it to fold up into a box when not in use. A handle was added for convenient carrying. It performed beautifully, despite it not being tested before the SCULimpics. Kudos to NoWayRay, who was the brave pilot to step forward and give the maiden jump.



Ege performs the "Flying Turk" maneuver, AKA Endos in a spectacular crash.





It was a miracle Flasher recovered from this.

Gold Medal: PazRokOne - 139 in.
Silver Medal: Ege - 135 in. (ended in a HUGE crash!)
Bronze Medal: MRI - 134 in.

•Kickin’ Claus
Take as much starting distance as you need. Ride by a plastic Santa real fast and kick it as far as you can. Distance is measured from the starting point to the landing point. Longest distance wins. Best of three tries. One kick per turn.

Santa turned out to be a more formidable opponent than most pilots expected. WalTor managed to get a good punt in, despite a bad case of gout on his kickin' foot, to take the silver.

•Dogfight
A ribbon extending two feet is tied to the back of each chopper. A large box is drawn on the ground. Players enter the arena. When the flag bearer says go, players attempt to rip off other players' ribbons. The last one to have all their ribbon wins. Anyone who leaves the circle is out.

Gold Medal: Crusty
Silver Medal: Crack
Bronze Medal: ???

•Frame Toss
Players throw a frame in a standing position. Feet must remain stationary. NO SPINNING. WAIT FOR THE FLAGBEARER TO SAY GO. THIS IS A DANGEROUS SPORT, USE CAUTION. The throwing bike has been gravitationally enhanced. Longest distance from throwing line to closest part of frame wins. One try only.

Gold Medal: MRI - 20 feet 9 inches
Silver Medal: WalTor - 19 feet 5 inches
Bronze Medal: Moss - 16 feet 3 inches





The tossing frame was gravitationally enhanced with solid steel barstock.

All had fun and no altercations were reported.
