    Well, I selected Wear on the frying pan that was in notices…. and it gave a script error.  Anyone else have that problem?  oO

      I had a script error too, but then it worked fine so just ignore the error message I’d say!

      I had a permissions error when I first put on the frying pan. But it went away when I removed it and put it back on again.

      Sometimes things can get flaky when a new owner runs a script that tries to take permissions.

        Yes sorry there is an odd initial perms rrequest anomoly when first worn. Ill try to figure that one out but in the mean time it should still work fine.

    Well done all who took part, it was a funny course to watch people run.

    Here for your viewing pleasure is the video of the Races. It is about 7 minutes long recording both events. –

    *notes, unicorns are rubbish at going round tight corners and Mr Mornington can really run on those goaty legs!*

    Excellent video, proving that ladies can win races without cheating, whereas urchins and gentlemen tend to be more enterprising.

    I took some photos.

    Thanks for the excellent video; I really must pay closer attention to goings-on in the City, else miss neat events like this one.  Goaty legs do seem to provide a tactical and strategic advantage, perhaps it’s the coming thing!
