Chief Morale Officer's Log: Stardate 10188.7
Lieutenant Laura Heald Reporting

This weekend, Captain Richard, Lt. Debra and I were sent on a dangerous away mission; attending the First Boatless Regatta in Manhattan. Our mission: to boldly go drink, have fun and not get lost between pubs. By not letting Richard navigate, we managed to accomplish all three! Kudos to Frolic's Becky for running such a great regatta.

Our secondary mission, to recruit crew for the (virtual) boat, did not go so well. Deb was unsuccessful in her attempts to convince Frolic's Captain to take up the position of main "Guy" on Enterprise. (He may have slept in the life raft for the rest of the weekend though.) She did bring a number of crew members early in the race but they abandoned ship before the finish. I managed to survive several guilt trips and other sneaky ploys to break down my loyalty to the Enterprise. There were some close calls but, by reminding myself that Edd has recently been known to have beer on board (eh), I was able to maintain my allegiances.

Richard was in high spirits despite many distracting hails from the other side (phone calls from the ex) and successfully led us in Edd's (many times noted) absence. The rest of the crew was sorely missed, too but winter has come and they are either abstaining, procreating or just plain hibernating. We managed to place 2nd with only the three of us but still consider this a victory because we really wanted the funky little plaque and not the golfer dude with a straw.

Frolic's dedication to their training program obviously paid off as they took 1st Place hands down. I have heard rumors of a challenge from the crew of Hub-Bub. If not, I'm sure we'll be able find some reason to boldly go have fun again soon.
