Harnkegger Games VI Round-Up Day 1:
In what was a nail-bitingly exciting Spike Jump Event that ended in a "sudden death jump-off" for the Gold, the Race of Men took the lead
with 4 points, followed by the Elves with 2 points. Though the Dwarves and Hobbits are still without points after Day 1, hopes are high among these nations that Day 2 will turn their fortunes in the Cross Country Run and Fire Jump Run Events - events where
Hobbits and Dwarves have in the past earned 11 out of 12 medals.
In other news... the finalists for the Music Event are now known! These six finalists, who will perform on
Sunday 17th for the coveted Gold medal, are... Lindamar, The White Flames, Lanterns of Nimrodeliant, Edwell, Pie Shop Hobbits and The Redstable Revellers.

12/09/2017: The Harnkegger Games Committee (HGC) has corrected a minor mistake on the site for the points alloted for a 6 second injury during the Spike Jump. This is 6 points, instead of 5. Any announcements mentioning 5 five points during the
event were incorrect, the final standing however was not influenced by this, where the scores were reflected correctly using the 6 points for a 6 second injury.

HARNKEGGER GAMES IV
1/09/2015: The Harnkegger Games
Committee (HGC) would like to remind all competitors that the rules of the Games can be found in detail on this website. If any competitor has grievances with any of the rules of the events they are asked to inform the hosts of the event (the character announcing
the rules in "say") PRIOR to the event start (via IM). In addition, any grievances with or complaints against other competitors, hosts or judges is to be made PRIOR to the announcement of the winners of the event to the event host (via IM). The HGC reserves
the right to ignore, refuse or act upon such grievances or complaints at their full discretion.
Though the HGC is has no doubt the vast majority of the competitors have fair
play in mind, we have stewards in place for all events and monitor any attempts at cheating very closely.

2/09/2015: The Harnkegger Games Committee (HGC) would like to remind all competitors
that the core values of the games are Merriment, Brotherhood, Fair-Play and Honour. Any competitor that does not agree with or support these values are asked NOT to compete in the
At times, though utterly undesirable, an oversight can occur at the Harnkegger Games. In such unlikely and rare events the HGC will do its utmost to rectify the
oversight, yet at times it may not be possible to please all involved.
We ask all competitors to also keep in mind that the vast majority of events have registration rules
and timelines, meaning you MUST register with a specific host or steward (as mentioned in the game rules announcement at the event in question) PRIOR to a specific time. If a competitor fails to do so, the HGC is unable to allow the competitor to compete.
In such events we ask the competitor for understanding and hope they show honour by accepting this gracefully.
The HGC understands that losing an event or match in the Harnkegger
Games is never an enjoyable moment, yet we strongly ask all to remain honourable in their loss and accept the rules of the events at all times. Not only do you do dishonour to yourself, your kinship or your nation by behaving in an unsportsmanlike fashion,
you dishonour the people that invest their time and effort into making these annual games a success for all involved.
