Tonight marked the last normal mission for the 2002 season. Closing ceremonies commenced at 21:00 hours to honor this years stone cog and iron cog recipients. Two ships were also christened this evening: PAS Snoop--a ship covered in red paint (chain, rear thruster, and all) and SideShowDoh's second build HipToElbow. Previously noted radiation abated gratiously. Skunk managed to pass out awards to the appropriate parties without his occular glands desalinating, then he was in turn surprised by an overdue Iron cog for the 1996 season, and then his face collapsed in on itself in a heart rending display of gratitude. The fleet, in a fit of end of season high spirits, proceeded through the davis, harvard and central constellations. Enthusiasm could not be contained and five derbys were held back to back in spitting distance to the memorial drive asteroid belt. Sky lab was once again in dager of falling into the ocean outside of Austrailia but was saved by skunk standing on the tacoed primary thruster. We joyously bopped our way back to the fort through the central and union constellations only to be rewarded with a string of triumphant high fives from a bee, a dear, a vampire, a doctor and the pope. All in all a fine season.
