Outlandish Swap V: The Fiery Cross

Scottish clans were originally a Highland way of life. The Highland clan was, above all things, a family; a family in which everybody believed they were all, from chief to blacksmith, descended from one founder or progenitor. They regarded themselves as very close kinsmen. This Swap is dedicated to such clan families and will be organized into four clans.

Beauchamps pulled ahead with the number of participants. There were 12 Beauchamps, 10 Murrays and nine Frasers. It was a tight game, for sure.

The scores:

Beauchamp: 110

Fraser:74 +1 (sneaker) = 75

MacKenzie: 0 -- because they wrote the Challenge, and were unable to prevent anyone from getting a perfect score.

Murray:77 +1 (early bird) +1 (sneaker) +5 (Shaydy's winning answers)= 84

Awards and Special Notice:

Early Bird: Shaydy of Clan Murray

Sneaker award goes to: A tie: Marsali Murray and Molly Fraser and once again Marsali. Marsali sent her answers in at 11:57 p.m., Molly submitted at 11:58 p.m. and Marsali, who had previously given up on finding "immoral papist" found it and resubmitted her answers at 11:59 p.m.

Solicitor in Training: Ide Mackenzie. She lobbied to award at least one point to the Mackenzies for having their challenge end on her birthday.

Close but not quite:
Murine Beauchamp who was so close with her answer: Spin silk out of my arse, which was her "favorite" response, even though it wasn't close enough.

Linguistic artist: Morven Beauchamp, who did a braw job in the challenge considering she was using a copy of Voyager in Norwegian. I am thoroughly impressed.

Clan Standings:

Beauchamp: 349
Fraser: 147
Mackenzie: 149
Murray: 285

Respectfully submitted,
Kellan Mackenzie
