Ravenchase Statistics



At last, the race is over. We came in fourth place, narrowly missing third place to Fellowship of the Van by under an hour. A $2 plastic ship spray-painted gold could have been ours! Congrats to Bloodshot and the Kilts who came in first and second place respectively.

For our rookie event, I think we did pretty well. If Eno had been able to make it, I have no doubt we could have captured third (the other option would have been to let the Fellowship of the Van drown in the river and beat them that way, but we’re just not that kind of team).

We’re also pretty sure we would have won the “People’s Choice” award for “Coolest Team” if a vote had been taken. We’ve got a lot of ESP skills, and by reading our opponent’s minds, we’re know that they liked us the best. We think it’s our modesty that gives us a real edge for that sort of thing.

Here are the race results:

1. Bloodshot 30:46 (hours:min)
2. Stillwater 32:27
3. The Fellowship of the Van 35:50
4. Enemies of the Common Good 36:45
5. A2 37:55
6. Team Lazlo 38:23

    What you didn’t list was how many teams chilled in the RV with you drinking beers in Nashville. People want to know these things, after all.

  2. Truth be told, I wanted to be in that RV. Somebody else make a race so I can play next time.

    You forgot Number of Inside Jokes: 1,006,082.
