GL Great Races

The Pirate Council of the GL Shared (collaboration of sea fairing guilds) are holding Ship Races. This is not a UO EM Event, but a Players event.
Our Mission is to bring some sporting fun to the Great Lakes that Young to Veterans can compete, without loss except to pride :)
General Info:
   All you need is a ship to compete and the registration fee of 200k Gold, With registration you receive goodie bags, 1st-3rd is awarded Gold and prizes. The break down is as follows, 1ST get 75% of Registration and Prizes, 2nd gets 10% of Registration and Prizes, 3RD gets 5% of Registration and prizes, 5% of Registration is to be donated to the city treasure where the race is held, and 5% of the registration is put into an account to help with purchase of prizes for the next race. Donations are excepted for the races.
Race Routes:
Race routes are held in the 9 major cities Feb-Oct, clearing the holidays for UO Events. the Race routes have 2-3 checkpoints where judges check you and send oyu on to the next. The checkpoints are giving out at the race meeting before the start of the event. ALL RACES HELD IN TRAM, this way loss of ship or life is not expected. Making it where even Young players can compete.
All ships can compete!!
