Today started a new season for SCUL pilots as well as a fort christening! Skunk had a ceremony welcoming the new fort and blew up a tube in its honor. The seismic bang resounded throughout the fort and the pilits cheered.
The fleet headed to the launch site to view the christen ing of Monkeyboy's new ship the VillageIdiot and to welcome new Maggot Krank. Sparky led the fleet through the Harvard constellation to the FreshPondNebula. Upon arriving in 25 degree weather, Flasher proceeded to remove his trousers to put on some padded ones. He was fortunate enough to complete the task before two ST passed by.
The crew decided to derby. Skunk took the first hit due to faulty braking abilities. It came down to NoWay and MonkeyBoy. It was expected that NoWay's weak toilet paper ribbon would break during the derby, but he wound up victorious in the alpha derby of 2002.
After the derby the pilots headed to Luna Seven11 for some hot chocolate molecules. The fleet silently returned to the fort without a mechanical!
