Actually, it is all fun 'n games!

Tea Dueling

Tea Dueling is competition for only the most civilized sorts of ladies and gentlemen, dressed in their finest. All while consuming some lovely tea and biscuits. Who could say no?
Like any proper duel, tea dueling follows a strict set of rules. This keeps things fair and fun for everyone.

A duel involves pairs of Contestants, who each choose a biscuit from the selection provided. They sit across from one another with their own cups of hot tea. At the signal each Contestant dunks their biscuits into the tea. After a count of five, the biscuit is removed and held upright, daintily in their fingers like civilized folks. The winner of the duel is the last one to cleanly consume their biscuit, without making an unseemly mess.

Sounds easy right? Convinced you can win against anyone? Potential Contestants will need to pre-register and pay a small fee to enter the duel. More details to follow.

Tactical Croquet Tournament

"Anyone who plays this must be mad." Come on over to Memorial Field and play the oddest game of croquet on record. Maneuver ball through a mixed-up world of obstacles and challenges. Imagine all the best portions of miniature golf, croquet, and Alice in Wonderland rolled into a leisurely afternoon pastime. Reserve as a foursome or join in with new-found friends for a game of croquet refereed by the Red Queen with the White Rabbit as timekeeper. Clockwork flamingos watch on as you make for the wickets across an obstacle course of greenery.

Tactical Croquet takes place at the Memorial Athletic Field (550 Washington St).

Scavenger Hunt

Join us Saturday, June 10th, at the Cotton Building downtown Port Townsend, for the great steampunk scavenger hunt! Younglings 13 and under will be led by our team of intrepid adventurers through downtown from 12:30-1:30pm on a search for engine parts, accumulating in a grand nerf gun shootout between pirates and participants.

Ahoy to all landlubbers and salty sea-dogs alike! The crew of the legendary ship “The Gallant” has been attacked just off the coast of Port Townsend, in our very waters! The pirates, in addition to plundering all the Gallant’s booty, have disabled the ship by stealing critical engine parts! If you can lend a hand to Captain CC and her vagabond crew in finding the stashed engine parts along the coastline, you will be rewarded for your services with treasure! But be warned: the scurvy dogs that attacked our ship will not give our engine parts back willingly!

Admission is free to BSC ticket holders and children 13 and under. Some nerf guns available on a first come first served basis. Hunt starts promptly at 1pm. While the scavenger hunt is led by responsible chaperons, we are not responsible for lost or missing children or their safety. Parents are encouraged to accompany their offspring.
