Axe Throwing & Hurling other Things of Danger

Host: Risto 'The Axe Whisperer' Welling

We really do stuff like that, yes. But you have to carry the burden of responsibility for your own safety. We are mad but not stupid. Risto will instruct you again in traditional axe throwing and probably teach you to use other items with promising aerodynamic qualities & impaling capabilities. Advanced learners are welcome back to check if their Experiences Rolls have panned out. Only sober adults are allowed to participate, of course. Hangovers are probably okay.

the target needs repairs
Yes, it needs repairs. No worries, Risto is on it.

Sunday Afternoon Tea Tasting

Hosts: Mr Graeme Murrell & Esq. & Dr Lynne Hardy, Ph. Tea

Beer and wine are all very good, but when one requires proper refreshment, there really isn't anything quite like a nice cup of tea. With this in mind, your hosts politely request your attendance at this top notch and most refined of afternoon activities. Graeme is also bringing Yorkshire Brack, and Lynne shall try to remember to bring some rich tea biscuits.
