Cold Revenge Quadrant

K'AllenOnce again the CRQ has been busy doing things and promoting Klingondom in general. On several occasion, ships have come together to conquer all in their path. Conventions, Orchestras, Paintball, and bat'letHs...I know y'all are jealous now.

IKV Bayou Serpent - Ri'Par sent this in:
The IKV Bayou Serpent has had a very busy year, as always. In April we hosted the 4th installment of Venom Wars, our Klingon paintball war. This year we even supplied our first brewed bloodwine. Just a couple of weeks later we attended our first con in Jackson, MS and hung out with many stars from Voyager, TNG, and Enterprise and did a little recruiting for KAG as well. We've had 3 "Good Day To Dine" events and best of all, several TV and radio spots in the Dallas/Fort Worth area thanks to an invite from the IKV Melota of Dallas. Since the last Mindscanner we've had 2 new warriors complete their uniforms with a 3rd in the process and a promotion for myself to Commander. We still have at least one more con to attend this year, possibly two. We also have plans to attend the Melota's bat'leth tournament this fall, and this is just what we have PLANNED at present! The IKV Bayou Serpent is still baring its teeth and making its presence known all over KAG!

Upcoming Bayou Serpent events:
-Aug 4, the IKV Bayou Serpent will be attending BabelCon in Baton Rouge, LA. We will also be the Honor Guard of Chancellor Gowron (Robert O'Reilly) for that event.
-Around Holloween, I and my wife Torsha are expecting the arrival of our own bouncing baby Klingon. It is a boy and his real name will be Kahless Shane-Lee Carnahan (guess what his Klingon name will be???)
