4th of July at Raishland - Part 1

The 3rd Fourth of July in a row at Raishland.  Here is the rooftop garden situation the night before we left.
We rented a party van again, but this time it wasn't a Dodge Grand Caravan (aka The DGC) it was a crappier like a chrysler pacifica, but it still go the job done.
we stopped by Catskill Brewery on the way.  Good stuff.
Roscoe Brewery which is super close by also has an electric car parking thingy and on the highway both breweries have billboards directly across from each other.  Also in the background they had two very chilled out large hounds of some sort.
We arrived with the daylight fleeting in time to set up camp and come back down the hill for beer and pizza


Morning has come to IASTC village on the first day of the 3rd Annual International Alternative Sports Tournament of Champions 2018 LLC Working Title.  There was a glimmer in everyone's eye as their hearts soared at the thought of IASTC gold

Segway SlapJousting is probably too dangerous and painful to be an official event in the IASTC but could be an exhibition event.
lots of food, beer, and merry making were had


Day two of the 3rd Annual International Alternative Sports Tournament of Champions 2018 LLC Working Title begins

Day 2 began with horseshoes in the morning to beat the heat.  The temperature for the whole trip was in the mid 90s in the day time!

Derek Drew (USA) and Jason Raish (USA) clinched a victory in horseshoes earning them ? points.
knife throwing and archery happened all the time, like how it seems like they do curling in the winter olympics every day non stop.  Knife throwing is a newly introduced event this year and most of the athletes took to it due to its accessibility and ease of introduction.  But make no mistake, it takes skillz to perform well in this event at the IASTC




The winner of the knife throwing event is bestowed the Golden Bowtie, inspired by the grand master himself, The Great Throwdini who wears a tux and bowtie and holds the world record in almost every knife throwing thing.  Jason Raish (USA) went home with the Golden Bowtie in 2018.  He is so badass and cool and smart

An exhausted group of IASTC athletes took a short trip to Cider Creek for some deliciously dry ciders and R and R before day 3.
