It may go without saying but this isn't a kegger at the Theta Phi Delta. We will be out drinking in public and will have to maintain some decorum. A lot of us will be strangers drinking in a strange town. The following is a list of guidelines to ensure a smooth experience for everyone involved.
Don't Be a Dick: First and foremost, don't do anything that's going to embarrass yourself or anyone else. Especially since alcohol is going to be involved you're going to want to leave your asshole pants at home. Don't make us snap your wand.
Know Your Limit: The only person who knows your alcohol tolerance is you. There's nothing worse than an overindulged drunk so don't be that guy. If someone notices that you're getting sloppy you're already past the point of no return. You should probably stop drinking when someone points out to you that you're peeing on a bar stool.
Leave No Wizard Behind: We arrive as a group and leave as a group. If someone has to be That Guy/Gal who gets so wasted that they think they're actually Dumbledore, it's the responsibility of the crawl as a whole to ensure this person makes it safely back to their hotel. Use the buddy system, handcuff yourselves to each other, whatever. No one is to vomit in a bus terminal by themselves. Not this night, at least.
Respect the Headboys/girls: Anyone designated as a headboy/girl for the crawl isn't there just to hand out stickers; they're there to make sure everyone's having a good time and that everything runs smoothly. They're there to keep everyone moving and to stop people like gertbeef from jumping up on the bar and dropping trou. If one asks you to stop picking bar fights with the seedy locals, it might be a good idea to do so.
HAVE FUN: This is the most important guideline of all: Have fun! We're all on vacation and we're drinking with fellow nerds so let's enjoy it. Keeping ourselves fairly reasonable for the evening will make it a good time for everyone.
So you find yourself asking "Why is this a drinking tournament and what do wizards have to do with it?". The answer to that is simple: I've devised a list of different challenges to be performed at each stop on the bar crawl. Participation in these challenges is by no means mandatory. Everyone is welcome to drink along with us and participate in as few or as many challenges as you want. These are designed simply for fun and to help break the ice as many of us will be meeting in person for the first time here. For those of you up to the task, here are the first six challenges corresponding with the six bar stops along the way:
Stop 1. Goblet of Fire
Stop 2. The Norwegian Ridgeback
Stop 3. YOU SHALL NOT PASS!
Stop 4. The Dark Mark
Stop 5. Riddle of the Sphinx
Stop 6. The Two Wands
Additionally, there are two wildcard challenges which may be performed at any point during the pubcrawl:
Challenge 7. The Wizard's Duel: Choose a partner and order each other a shot. Anything goes (No Killing Curses)
Bonus: Wear some sort of wizard or witch attire to the crawl. Wands, hats, robes, etc
Score will be kept by the headboys and girls, one of which will be me for one of the groups and a volunteer from the other group if there is one. No, there is no prize for "winning". Again these are designed just for fun although if you really want a prize I would have to say it's not throwing up on my shoes. That's a good prize.
There will now some minor prizes added to the tournament. The first 10 people in each group to turn in a fully completed scorecard to their headboy/girl will receive one of these iron-on emblems:
Players will have scorecards that I printed out on oversized glossy postcards and look like this:
There are only 50 of these and will be distributed first come, first serve. If you plan on coming late you may want to print out your own.
Essentially this is a drinking scavenger hunt for those who want to and a normal pub crawl for those who don't.Smile! You're on camera!:
As with some of the other community events, our little tournament has attracted Porkfry and his camera minions. Prepare to be filmed at some point and having said footage possibly used on the PAX '08 DVD. Let's show the world how wizards/witches really roll.
