The beginning of a bright, spring day where the sun shines down on Smeewick is abruptly disturbed by the sounds of fighting. The once quiet town is being filled with the noise between two households with their fighting. The constant bickering has boiled over from mere words, to swords between the two households. Through the upcoming weeks both sides will be spreading words to their members to bolster their houses. So pay heed to the messengers that may come or to those that the may receive letters, for your household may be calling. Arm yourself to prepare for the battle ahead.

Every four years there comes a time to prove yourself as a warrior, a fighter, as a hero, a champion. That time is nearing, that time is called the Olympics.
In honor of these Olympics, the Shire of Crystal Crags is holding a day of games, challenges and festivities that will have a Scottish Games theme, with different challenges to prove your worthiness.
