Operation
Show and Tell
In this mission we had show-and-tell, and everyone brought interesting things.

Dreadflint navigated for his first time and it was complicated and bumpy and fun. Many happy returns!

Dixit provided 3 carrots and dip, while Threespeed rounded out our picnic with off-brand Hoho
snack cakes. SCUL is healthy.

There were no mechanicals other than a chain drop, no injuries, and new maggot Geist turned in a fine flight. Speaking of maggots, we finally knighted Ichirinsya, four years later. Really? Yeah.

Medals
Valor to Leotard for the HARV Limbo Steering Dampener Fountain Incident, in which her presence of mind, in the face of perilous low clearances and tight maneuvers, saved the beer molecules.

Patronage to DreadFlint for achieving 2 revolutions upon the Wheel of Impossibility, and donating the proceeds to SCUL.

Skunk: watch beyond steampunk
Deadblow: rings of mighty craftsmanship

Leotard's show and tell item was a bit heavy handed.




Dr. Claw clearly had something small to show us.




Threespeed had a bright idea rigging up this carbide acetylene gas lamp on his ship.




Threespeed shows off the spring suspension system for his carbide lamp. Also node the low pressure relief valve.




Dixit shared an ornate metal medallion.




Skunk gets a closer look at Dixit's medallion.




Geist has an idea for how to rack up some points...




We decided to wait until after he did this to tell him that as a cadet he can't earn points.




Everyone looks on in disbelief as Bane's ThunderSack tears open!




Beautiful.




Cruisin'




3spd had a thermal incident which cut (and cauterized!) his acetelyene tube




Skunk shows off his homemade pocket watch which is so big it doesn't fit in an average pocket.




Sewer - a real life Harry Potter. Magical things happened to him as a kid and he has the scars to prove it.




Ichirinsya shows us where the other wheel is!




Dreadflint rides an ultimate wheel $20 better than he was expecting to.




Threespeed doesn't realize the camera is looking back at him...




Deadblow probably used a smaller tool to assemble this.




Ak! Is that blood, Wombat? No, it's just oil.




Yes, she can juggle and ride a unicycle!




Synesthetics love this Rubiks cube Red Squirrel painted.




Tyrian had us watch his timepiece glow in the dark.




Crusin'




Skunk wields a wheel over Ichirinsya's head and finally knights him. Well done!
