Challenge #1: Skewer the Scurrier!

*Somewhere on a forlorn plateau, J.J. stands next to two markers; one colored orange the other purple. The contestants drag their feet across the desert to stand on their appropriate marker.*

J.J.: Welcome survivors. I take it you are settling into your environment nicely?

*some low grumbling and head shaking*

J.J.: I see some of you have been able to acquire some of the local food. Well today’s challenge takes that food gathering to a new level. Today you will be hunting Scurriers.







These little critters are very fast but very tasty. Each team will have one hour to gather more Scuriers than the other team. The winning team also gets to eat all the Scurriers caught today.

*Some heavy drooling and lip smacking*

The winning team will also be able to wash it down with this case of ice cold Old Mos Eisley beer.

*Some bug-eyed looks and hand trembling…especially from Obi-Wan*

*J.J. looks into camera*: That’s right. Old Mos Eisley beer. Locally brewed, Toydarian crafted, 45 proof Old Mos Eisley beer. As bitter and acidic as you remember it. When you have nothing better…reach for an Old Mos Eisley!











* Turns back to contestants* Okay, sounds easy enough, right? Well not so fast. You will not be able to use your weapons. Instead each of you will have one of these.







Gaffi sticks. You will also have to ride one of these…







Dewbacks. And you will have to ride them bareback. Each team must maneuver their Dewback along this plateau, throw their Gaffi sticks like a spear at the tiny fast moving Scurriers and skewer them. They must then retrieve their Gaffi sticks and stuck Scurriers and put the dead critter in an appropriate colored bin; purple or orange depending on you team. The team with the most Scurriers in an hour wins all the Scurriers to eat plus the case of ice cold beer. The losing team must show up at tribal council this Friday to vote one of their own off.
Qui-Gon, you will be able to use this special spectral Gaffi stick since you are…eh…you know. We had it killed and brought back to life just for this challenge.






Any questions?

Anakin: Yo! Can we use the force to like guide our G-rods to the little Scurz? I mean, most of us are like illin’ Jedi and all.

J.J.: I’m afraid not. Anyone caught using the force to help them will be eliminated from the challenge.

Anakin: Man, that’s just whacked! See if I rescue your sorry ass again.

J.J.: Ahem…well. Now that that’s settled…man your Dewbacks.

And….go!

Let's see if they like Oreo's! I can lure them over to a spot, and Leia and Aayla can skewer them with the Gaffi sticks.

Uh...

How are you going to determine how many we catch? Are you going to roll dice?

(scratching my head)

As per the rules statement sometime last week, Challenges will in fact be determined randomly. (no other way I can think of to do it)Afterwards it's up to you guys who you want to vote off.
I hope that's okay with everyone.

I broke my Gaffi stick on my Dewback's head trying to get him to settle down enough to ride him.

Do I get another?

Well, I guess skewering is almost as good as choppin' off arms...

Damn, this challenge is going to be hard, I don't think my droid body can ride dewback

Oops, I accidentally killed my dewback when my lightsabre worked it's way loose of my belt and I jostled it while attempting to catch it and it came on.

Do I get another?

Uh, and I signed a waiver, so I'm not liable, right?

Ooteeni tribe -- let's make a net out of part of the sandworm's hide and throw it on those critters, no? Then we can stab 'em easier.

oh well at least if we lose we still have a dewback to eat

I have found that riding the dewback with just my Speedo on helps.

Perhaps everyone else should try this? Aayla?? Leia??

So, uh...*ahem*...DO I GET ANOTHER DEWBACK? or wha...

oh, hey! wait...nevermind...turns out these things are easy to stab when they're munching on a dewback carcass.

I'll just keep this one.
