OTHER INFORMATION:   This is the last chapter of the Tournament of Roses

join a family faction.  The object is to collect icoinsi from other
participants while retaining your own through winning purses in the planned
events, through impromptu encounters with other participants, through betting
on the prowess of your faction in the lists & ranges or by other imaginative
means.  (Beware of Thieves!)  At 5:00 will judge which faction has raised the
largest warchest.  EACH member of the faction with the largest warchest will
receive a prize.  The site is WET.   Lunch is available for an additional
