Capture the Flag Aftermath
Well Fuck. If that didn’t go exactly as planned! We got a strong turnout of 26 people on the day for Capture the Flag Kilkenny. Better than I expected and everything I could of hoped for launching punchthesphinx. Blue Team won 3-1! The game only lasted 1 hour and twenty minutes, but good golly miss molly if they weren’t packed with 7 shades of sweetness. Here’s the action in real-time from twitter. Should of gotten it on the day, hence the 2 days old time. Meh Bad.
As you can see, Blue Team won 3-1. Fair Play! Man of the match, well damn if it ain’t hard to call. Jake Casey and Ryan Hitchcock put their holes into the game and it showed. Their effort now, not their asses. I’m sure their fantastic bottoms all the same. I remember I was down at Red base and saw a patent’d Jake Capture. Grabs the flag and fucks it over the wall into the CBS to collect later. Smart Fuck. It’s a strategy that won them the match! I think all three of their captures were done with an over the wall throw. Ian was at Red Base all the time, perhaps he’ll grace us with a story? (He will, I’ll make ‘em comment)
Another tale from the day was one chap, Brian I think, stole the Blue Team’s flag with a group of 4 people. They all got tagged apart from him and he spent 20 minutes on his own cowering in the woods in Kilkenny Castle with a lolhuge flag. That’s Predator style shit right there son.
All in all, a fantastic day. The feedback I got from people was amazing. Everyone loved it.
So I’m happy to announce the next Punchthesphinx.com event will be at the end of October. More details later coz I’m just a big tease.
