The 8th Annual Terrapin 500 is nearly upon us. Are you ready?
In conjunction with the transmog contest, we'll be making a full evening of excitment.
The Transmog Contest starts at 8:30 pm in our usual place in Stormwind. Please note: this is one-half hour earlier than usual. The theme of this month's contest is to pick a battle pet and make a transmog around that pet. Last month's co-winner, Mizauki, will be the judge. Winterlight is unable to attend.
Once the contest is over, we will head to Ironforge for the race. Remember the ONLY mount allowed is the Sea Turtle. There's still time to get lucky and fish this up from pools in Wrath, Cata and Mists zones. You can also get it from fishing quest bags in Cata. If you'd like to have a bit more luck, I'm happy to invite you into my garrison on Draenor for a chance to fish it up there. Miz will be our announcer again this year. I could use someone to take screenshots. Even if you can't ride, please come to Ironforge and cheer on the racers. It means a lot to us to see guild members on the bank steps, cheering as we race past. It's a half hour of your time. The race begins at 9 pm. Racers who come in costume get 75 gold. First place gets 200 gold. Second place gets 150 gold. Third place gets 100 gold. I hope you like milk because you gotta drink a glass after you win.
When we are done in Ironforge, we'll head to OLD Dalaran and race around it. If you'd like to bring your horde toon, you are welcome to do so. Again, if your horde comes in costume, you get 75 gold. Prize money is the same for the Dalaran race. From there, we're heading to NEW Dalaran and racing around the city. This year, we won't have to contend with demons attacking the city. Everything should be done by 10:30 pm.
This is always one of our best guild-wide events. We can do summons for players who haven't, yet, discovered Dalaran so you can cheer on guild members. Make your plans. Bring your popcorn and beer. See you Saturday.
