A&S Competition: To Atlantians far and near, Tir-y-Don’s red dolphin mascot, Finn, is in need of your assistance! Whilst swimming in the ocean blue, Finn, met a fair maiden with glorious hair and a glistening tail of green. Although their meeting was brief, she captured his heart. Since then Finn has explored deep-sea caverns, defended himself against attack, quested along the shore and made his way through a maze of kelp forests to gather items to create a gift worthy of his fair mermaid. Alas! In his last task of assembling the items, he finds his flippers lacking in the needed dexterity. He asks for your help in making an item or series of items worthy to give his love. If you wish to help Finn, for a nominal fee, you can purchase a Five Labors of Finn kit at one of four upcoming events, assemble said item or items, and bring it/them for judging to the Labors of Fin event on March 30, 2019 in Newport News, Virginia. The number of kits sold will determine the prize.
To purchase a Five Labors of Fin kit ($5.00), seek out either Lady Muriel or Lady Meip of Tir-y-Don in the Arts & Science area of Kingdom 12th Night (Jan 12, 2019). There are a limited number of kits which are sold first come first serve.
