Last-Minute Award Announced Amid Controversy

by Thane Carios

(Octavius Outpost)  In  a very unusual move, an additional medal has been added to the list of medal179Festival awards.  The awards committee has decided to posthumously award the Sarath’s Rage Medal to pilot Wilson.  Sources who declined to be named indicated that the award was hotly debated — primarily because of Wilson’s squad (The Gang) and it’s predilection to collect certain fees from unwilling pilots.

“With him it was always about the orphans of Octavius,” said long-time friend and colleague, Liet, struggling to contain his emotions.

The Sarath’s Rage medal is awarded to “individuals who have had a long career as a combat ace.”  Along with being posted to Wilson’s pilot record, the medal will also be presented to his wife, Mrs. Wilson, with the sincere condolences of the entire pilot community.

(TRI-RMD) The first running of the TRI BOOTLEG ’04 was completed on 104.9.25, and good times were had by all. With a prize pool of over 90 million credits, it was a profitable event as well. The runners of the BOOTLEG ’04 were Radi, Ambrosius, vulture83, Firestorm, CoC, and Dr-McManus. The Smokies were midi1, hostage, KiaDevil, RaiderOne, Ghostwolf, and punknads. The runners were to start at Wake station, and travel to Great Pillars, Quantar Core, and then Solrain Core station, with a combination of Oct Lite, Sol Stout, and Quanus Ice. The smokies were trying to either down the runners, or steal their wares. The station brokers for the event were Tensity, VALEN, and 8ohms. The TRI BOOTLEG ’04 was organized by Tensity and biteme, and they have promised another one.

Radi finished first for the runners, followed by Ambrosius and vulture83 finished third. For the smokies, midi1 and hostage led their division with 2 kills each, followed by KiaDevil and RaiderOne with one each.

Pilot Radi, for winning the Runner portion, is awarded the All Nations Flag. Smokies midi1 and hostage, each with 2 kills, are awarded Sarath’s Rage, and event organizers Tensity and biteme are awarded the Echoes Of Hope.
