As anticipated, SCULimpics completely wiped
everyone out. At the dawn of a new day Skunk
rose to some difficult problems. First the
time that Larz started was much earlier than
he had thought. This meant that he had to get
USB Catastrophe there by ten, and be back to
lead the SCUL mission at 12. Secondly there
was no real way to safely display Catastrophe
without fear of the hundred pound ship falling
on top of some priceless nineteen pound show
bike. A transport was in order. Skunk packed
up Catastrophe and headed off to the Brookline
System, with a brief stop at Luna Seven to
pick up a sturdy bike stand. Upon returning to
base he found no pilots up to the challenge of
piloting choppers back out. Skunk boarded USB
SkyLab and returned to Larz, with three SCUL
pilots aboard their civi ships.

The surface of the plant becomes unbearably
hot in the day, as all pilots know. This day
was no exception. But in order to observe the
Larz Anderson Bike Show we must find ways to
survive. Shade was scarce, and we were far
>from any refreshment molecules, which had to
be shipped in from light years away.
Nonetheless it was worth the trip. Many fine
yachts were on display: road, track, touring,
ordinaries, recumbents, you name it.
Catastrophe looked out of place amongst the
slight models. Surprisingly enough Catastrophe
won Best Custom, a third consecutive victory
for SCUL.

By the time the merchants were packing,
RadioBox was completely drained of power from
her triple shift (SCULimpics Day, SCULimpics
Night, and Larz), so we jettisoned her into
DBD's transport and headed back to Fort
Berkeley for a much needed rest. It was an
entire week before the RadioBox reached full
charge status again. It took a week for Skunk
to recover from sunburn too.
