Since people have been wondering where this event will take place:

KYLMABE where the race starts is 3 jumps from Jita. All locations used are in high security space. The number of jumps involved are <30 in total to give an idea of the time the event will take. Going through lowsec might save you a few jumps but as finding the information needed fast is important the option to go all highsec is available.

The event is now completed. As there was only the one participant showing up, and he completed the entire course with honor in accordance to the rules I am happy to announce that Shinobi-san has recieved the first prize of one Ishtar and 100M isk.

In case anybody is interested the clues given were as follows:

In the starting system Kylmabe the following was written in local at the start:

Quote:
The Journey:
There is a relic named after Yan Jung. Around said beacon a ship belonging to QUACK circles. The Circling ship is named after a person. The system where

that person lives is your end goal.

Entering the relic site is not part of the event and it is adviced not to enter.


At the first waypoint the ship was named: "Tevis Jak"

If you want to know what systems were used you need to figure it out for yourself :)


While the number of contestants could have been better we will not give up our events just yet. There will still be another event later this week. That event will be "Find the missing Duck" and require people to use locator agents as well as show skill with scanner probes. Most likely there will also be a "Duck Race 02" later in the week. Prizes for both of these are yet to be decided.


Edit: Since the winning pilot was new char in need of isk it was decided to give him all three prizes as a thank you for making the event happen at all :)
