Mission Summary

Many maggots showed minutes before launch making the preflights more challenging than usual. September first on Boston is known as "Night of the Living U-Hauls" so we decided to navigate clear of the heavily transported spaceways. This proved unnecessary, for most of the moving transports were docked by 11. USB Mjollnir had another of it's infamous flats.

Off to derby in the Luna Microcenter arena! After two fun but long derbies it was time to head back to base. Unfortunately the end of the last derby had some unexpected results: ICI GormClaiomh lost her navigational thruster in a dramatic crash ending, the rim split open.

Nasty split in the rim

While we were trying to decide what to do, USB Mjollnir reported another flat. We took the navigational thruster off Mjollnir and put it on GormClaiomh. Mucus carried Mjollnir's wreckage, and GutRod got a lift from PigPen aboard EZ-Raider. We all returned to base safely to tell the tale.
