Log of Event
We find ourselves starting the night with 9 entrants signed up, and two walk in's: Gem, Katt, Mur, Rhi, Gwen, Michiko, Ryo, Kel, Sarah, Masked and Druid. Ryo, unfortunately, wasn't able to make it, leaving us with 10.
And so, the night began.
In the first round, we saw Gwen take on Katt, Mur dance with Rhi, Gwen play tag with Michi, Kel and Sarah see-sawing, and Masked fighting Druid. When all completed, we had to say goodbye to Katt, Rhi, Michi, Kel, and Masked.
Thus, in the second round, Gem, Mur, Gwen, Sarah and Druid were left. Gem gained the first bye of the night, watching as Mur/Gwen and Sarah/Druid duked it out. Mur and Druid were beating, and so we said goodbye to them, sending them off to the bar for a drink or ten.
Round three showed that the Talon was going to go to one of the ladies, which is fitting as it honours one of our finest ladies. Gem and Sarah went at it, leaving Gwen with the second and final bye of the night. Once the round was done, Gem was sent off to pay me her kisses, leaving Sarah and Gwen to the final match.
In the match that determined which lady would take the Talon home, things started off with Gwen thrusting in and catching herself a ducking Sarah. Then round two caught them both cutting, Sarah going high and Gwen low. Then a small break catches them both as they decide that a pair of fancy steps were needed. That break didn't last long, though, as Sarah drives in, thrusting right onto the awaiting stop hit from Gwen! Then the blood was flowing as Sarah cut low and Gwen high. Sarah pulled back finally, turning a circ parry, but it was too late as Gwen fancy stepped around for the win!
And so, we find Gwen Minx the new holder of the Talon of Redwin! congrats!
