Anyone ever wanted to be an olympian?
Anybody ever wanted to get out of thier comfy computer chair and go for a jog?

I have....
And now it is a reality!
I am a very good runner!
But for all whom arent as blessed as me i have thought of the graallympics!

Get this:
A bomy carries a torch from human town to snow town.
He/she lights up NPC torch.
Then it begins:
There are scheduled events throughout a a graalian day
or so, These may include:
Hockey
Skiing
Races: Foot, Horse, Bomy etc.
CT,1,2,3.
CTF.
Survivor
Elephant races
And finally trivia.

You dont win gralat but points!
The most points acumulated by one person is the winner!
The winner might get a section on the graal main site where they can leave a description of themselves pic etc. and lots $$$$$!
And these should be held every graal year at the same time!

Whadaya think graal ppl?
Get off your academic hats and put on your sweatsocks!!!
=D

Vote GRAALYMPICS!!!

Hehe, that would be fun!

We could even come up with like, triangles for the olympic symbols instead of circles.

03-22-2001, 08:44 PM
I actually would enjoy organizing something like that shayde =\

Lycia
03-22-2001, 08:47 PM
Hehe, yeah. It would be hell though trying to get it organized.


Like, maybe have a Graalympics Committee.

FatherDante
03-22-2001, 10:03 PM
It would be no harder than any other event, just take it one at a time.

Lycia
03-23-2001, 02:34 AM
Hehe, athletes would actually have to train and get good at their chosen sport before competing.

Cloud_X
03-23-2001, 03:43 AM
A few events team members could do it. I mean as long as you dont atempt it last minute it sounds neat

Aidoggy
03-23-2001, 03:47 AM
sounds ok

Lycia
03-23-2001, 04:33 AM
I elect MadBrad president of the Olympic Committee.

Psyker

Graalympics would be awesome. Hehe, Stefan could run around the world carrying the torch :D

oh yes, it would.

Lycia
03-23-2001, 05:22 AM
Opening ceremonies would be fun.

Cloud_X
03-23-2001, 05:30 AM
If we could find someone to do graphics it would look awsome! Im going to talk to madbrad and see if he will consider having an event like this cause he is Events Admin and for the most part it's up to him i believe.

MdadBrad
03-23-2001, 05:41 AM
This actually does sound like a good idea and I don't think it would be too hard to do.

Asuka
03-23-2001, 05:43 AM
I came up with this idea a long time ago and i told hippie but he didn't like it =( oh well but with renewed interest i hope it happens. Also 1 problem though how are you gonna get all the olympians on at 1 time..

MdadBrad
03-23-2001, 05:50 AM
There can be schelduled times and if they aren't on at the time of their event they are disqualified.

Asuka
03-23-2001, 05:56 AM
As long as it isn't held on friday 4-11pm
saturday 4-11pm
sunday 12-7
monday 4-7
i can be there ;) but if you can't im sure you won't care.

Lycia
03-23-2001, 06:15 AM
Why should we adjust it so it conveniences you?

Asuka
03-23-2001, 07:06 AM
I never said you had to i just noted the times i couldn't be on mostly the weekend because i have work ( A REAL JOB LYCIA may be in your interest to get one too) also im going ice skating and bowling. At least he doesn't have to adjust it to fit your schedule because yours is graal 24/7.

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 07:12 AM
Asuka never suggested that we should plan around his schedule. That was awful mean, Lycia. He only informed us of the times when he could compete.

Asuka
03-23-2001, 07:13 AM
Yeah i work weekends since im only 15 and on a workers permit. Basically i have no life on weekends since i only work but its needed so i can have a life in the summer. Going to france, england, and italy for 2 weeks and going to boston for 2 and half weeks for my sisters graduation ( THE PERSON WHO DID THE PANDA HEAD)

uhmmmmmmm one problem
the Olympics are a nonwinning sport. there is no one winner. i agree there should be prizes but no winners as that defeats the whole purpose of the olympics...

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 07:16 AM
I think there should be a winner for each event like the real olympics, not an overall.

Except for the decathlon, of course. :D

Agreed
Wait here's an idea there can be nations or something and we each have like one olympian from each nation in an event like 1 person from the nation can be in the spar tourny and another one could be in the survivor and the entire team in in CTF etc. Since the olympics support bringing the nations together.

Asuka
03-23-2001, 07:17 AM
but how many people in each nation.....

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 07:18 AM
Nations would be pretty nice but make the whole thing more difficult to organize. Especially arranging for olympiads from each nation to be on the events.

Lycia
03-23-2001, 07:20 AM
Thats why I say we have continents of the world compete.

Asuka
03-23-2001, 07:23 AM
No continents stay as far away from the real world as possible for the olympics. This is graalian olympics i think there should be leaders and they name the nation and then they compete.

Cloud_X
03-23-2001, 07:35 AM
Yes I think there should be fake little graal nations that compete considering it would be "the graalolympics"

Lycia
03-23-2001, 07:42 AM
Errrr, and what would be wrong with continents of the world?

Asuka
03-23-2001, 07:44 AM
Stay as far away from actual olympics as possible. Can you imagine the graalians. I WANNA BE USA NO I WANNA BE USA CAN WE CHANGE CONTINENTS BECAUSE THE SWISS ARE BETTER AT SKIING BUT WE WANNA BE THE USA FOR THE SPAR TOURNY.

isnt that the events team's or whatever job?

Psyker
03-23-2001, 09:04 AM
how would we go about getting the graalympians?

Cloud_X
03-23-2001, 09:53 AM
Well If madbrad lets some of the et work on it (or all) Ill work on it. I personally LOVE the idea and hope it works out.

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 10:27 AM
We should use the continents on the Graal game.

hm... maybe Mt. Antora, Antora apendage, Bombor, Santerrain, Bogenera, and the... far east?

Admins
03-23-2001, 10:30 AM
why not taking guilds instead of nations?
Hmmm we need ganis for holding the torch
and holding a flag
There should always be some events at the
same time so that not all 60 or 70 people
are at the same spot. And people need to
register before taking part in the
competitions.
The winners can have some hall of fame level
in the human starting town or so,
where there is the name, a little screenshot of him
while winning + some personal notes.

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 10:32 AM
Wow, that would really make a big deal out of it! Guilds might be nice, but still complicated.

Probably easier than arranging made up nations. Plus, easier to restrict because only one person from a guild can participate.

Lycia
03-23-2001, 10:33 AM
I am in a good mood.

shaggy2dope
03-23-2001, 10:36 AM
Awesome!!! I must win

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 10:37 AM
With all that at stake I must win.

Asuka
03-23-2001, 10:41 AM
Good idea dante with the graal nations bogenera and stuff.

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 10:44 AM
Just a recommendation. Of course, Stefan knows the Graal geography much better than I. I think Bogenera may just be the city and not the province name. But I don't know.

Cloud_X
03-23-2001, 10:52 AM
Wahooo graalolympics must happen because of a simple fact that it would just be well.....really fun!

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 10:54 AM
I want to be immortalized in the hall of fame... ;_;

I'm on the west coast though, everyone is always on before me. :(

Asuka
03-23-2001, 10:57 AM
I just want in the Survivor, Horse Race, and Spar tourny competitions.

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 11:01 AM
I'd like to do just about everything, except for hockey and soccer, I think.

Asuka
03-23-2001, 11:02 AM
Same dante but if i only could choose a few it would be those 3 cuz they are fighting and im good at that and i think im pretty good at horse racing.

Immitat0r
03-23-2001, 11:17 AM
=P dunno what to say

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 01:20 PM
I'm no good at soccer and okay at hockey... but I'm good at races and trivia. Well, non graal trivia.

Asuka
03-23-2001, 01:21 PM
oh and im good at trivia too im on academic team.

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 01:25 PM
Hey, me too, I came home with grip of awards this year. And I live in San Bernardino, the country's largest county!

Asuka
03-23-2001, 01:30 PM
ME TOO i was my team's leading scorer for all the matches except 1 because i did bad that day and the kid beat me by 1 question oh well it's a team effort. BUT I STILL GOT THIS GROOVY MEDAL and besides i got valedictorian for my grade school class.

I wont get valedictorian for high school though im 2nd now because i didn't finish my midterm exam math one too and i got a C!!! on it and it brought me down to a B for the semester I WAS PISSED i woulda gotten a B on the exam if i got 3 more questions right but i didn't finish it and i got the last 13 questions wrong! :(

hakman
03-23-2001, 01:31 PM
Well i got a rather positive response to this idea!
=D
Hey anyways i think it will be fun, but only if it is well ORGANIZED!
I would love to be in the events team when thaey are organizing this (Seeing as though I DID come up with idea! =D )
So anyone have any suggestions just email me and we can work on it!

03-23-2001, 01:33 PM
I just had an academic team match today.
I tore it up. :)

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 01:36 PM
I'm not gonna be valedictorian, my school has almost 3000 students...

Asuka
03-23-2001, 01:41 PM
my class has 500 students but i had to screw up on my math exam just because theres 84 problems with 90 minutes its almost impossible to actually finish that. and its not just plain math its accelerated algebra2/trig

hakman
03-23-2001, 02:00 PM
Why are you writing about a maths test on a graalympics post?

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 02:01 PM
oh, Sorry, it came from the trivia thing.

Asuka
03-23-2001, 09:10 PM
We were talking about valedictorian things sorry getting off topic is too easy.

Lycia

What does math have to do with Graal?

FatherDante
03-23-2001, 10:03 PM
It's pretty easy to see the transition between conversations... it's not like we can only talk about Graal, it's just that we went from trivia to Academic Competition to valedictatorship.

Lycia
03-24-2001, 02:19 AM
Hehehe, kinda reminds me of the SM boards.

We get talking about one thing, and we fork off to another topic.

hakman
03-24-2001, 05:00 AM
So We need to post this idea to stefan!
=D
I will write up a formal overview of the event and send it to him!
=D
Anyone wish to help?

Cloud_X
03-24-2001, 06:02 AM
Stefan replied to this post heh I think it's madbrad's hands to do the talking with stefan anyway
