Introducing the Waterbearer's Challenge! Each year the call goes out, "Please bring empty 2-liter bottles to Gulf Wars!" This is a competition for households to see which house can collect the greatest number of 2-liter bottles for the Gulf Wars Waterbearing cause. This activity hopes to fulfill three aspects:
- Supply the Gulf Wars Waterbearers with much needed empty bottles.
- Put all households on the same level in a friendly competition.
Size doesn't matter!
- Create a new Gulf Wars annual competition.
Materials to be collected are empty 2-liter bottles and pop tops. Quality will count! Read the requirements for donating empty 2-liter bottles on the Gulf Wars website (click on the header above). One point is given for each bottle collected, bonuses are given to meeting the 'other' requests. Sheer number can win, but in the event of a tie on number of bottles, quality will decide. Donating pop-tops is an automatic double bonus!
Interested households wishing to compete should email the Meridian Kingdom Waterbearer at firstname.lastname@example.org with your household name, kingdom and group. Once you arrive at Gulf Wars, submit your contribution at the Waterbearing Point near the fort. Contributions for competition will be accepted at all times, just look for the "Waterbearer's Challenge" Donation Station' sign. Materials for competition may be submitted all week, up until noon on Thursday. Winner will be announced at Great Court on Saturday night. There will be a prize for the winning household. This is open to all households attending Gulf Wars from any Kingdom.
This competition is sponsored by the Waterbearers Guild and an anonymous household.
