Status: Failure

Operation

Dollar A Pound

Course was set for Castle Island, but heavy ST activity ahead of the Boston Triathon thwarted our best laid plans. Provisions were made instead to visit the Jeff K Library, where we encountered a curious ST performing routine foot patrols, who was kind enough to let us stay and derby on the back patio.

Derby wins by Nosepicker (showdown with Skunk), Wombat (showdown with Saphron), and Nosepicker (won by default after Dogi, Wombat, and Treekiller all took themselves out simultaneously, leaving him the last man standing).

While stopped at a gas station, an enthusiastic civilian offered to pay $100 to ride Trinity, before upping the offer to $200 to ride Cloudbuster.

After much debate on the landing pad, mission was deemed a failure since we never actually made it to Castle Island due to the road closures.

Injury to Saphron for road rash sustained during courageous and partially successful attempts to fly Compliance and Cor Leonis.

Addendum from Metoikos with memorable quotes
1) Civilian: Is that generator powered?
Skunk: No, it's powered by burritos.
2) Bane Thunderwolf literally burning rubber with his shoe brake coming down a very posi gwell in the South Boston system
