Actually, it is all fun ‘n games!
Tea Dueling is competition for only the most civilized sorts of ladies and gentlemen, dressed in their finest. All while consuming some lovely tea and biscuits. Who could say no?
Like any proper duel, tea dueling follows a strict set of rules. This keeps things fair and fun for everyone.
A duel involves pairs of Contestants, who each choose a biscuit from the selection provided. They sit across from one another with their own cups of hot tea. At the signal each Contestant dunks their biscuits into the tea. After a count of five, the biscuit is removed and held upright, daintily in their fingers like civilized folks. The winner of the duel is the lat one to cleanly consume their biscuit, without making an unseemly mess.
Sounds easy right? Convinced you can win against anyone? Potential Contestants will need to pre-register and pay a small fee to enter the duel. More details to follow.
Tactical Croquet Tournament
“Anyone who plays this must be mad.” Schedule your “tea time” at
Brass Screw Registration and step on to the green with mallet in hand –
then play 8 “octipedal” posts (in honor of our Octopi) of the oddest game of
croquet on record. Maneuver ball through a mixed-up world of obstacles
and challenges. Imagine all the best
portions of miniature golf, croquet, and Alice in Wonderland rolled
into a leisurely afternoon pastime. Reserve as a foursome or join in with
new-found friends for a game of croquet refereed by the Red Queen with
the White Rabbit as timekeeper. Clockwork flamingos watch on as you
make for the wickets across an obstacle course of greenery.
Tactical Croquet takes place at the Memorial
Athletic Field (550 Washington St)

Saturday 1:00pm – 3:00pm Pope Marine Park
Join us Saturday, June 10th, at the Cotton Building downtown Port Townsend, for the great steampunk scavenger hunt! Younglings 13 and under will be led by our team of intrepid adventurers through downtown from 1-2pm on a search for engine parts, accumulating in a grand nerf gun shootout between pirates and participants.
The great desert-walker Mirage has been attacked just outside of Port Townsend by a marauding group of rogue scientists, scattering critical parts across town. Scouts located the lost parts, but were attacked by the scientists’ lackeys before they could retrieve them! Just before being shanghaied, the scouts managed to write down clues to the coordinates for the lost parts on two charts and hide them to prevent the beastly bodgers from commandeering the desert-walker. Captain Jhin of the desert walker “Mirage” and his First Mate Danielle are calling all young inventors and scrappers to assist in the search for the missing parts! But be on your guard my steam-savvy friends, for the location of the parts is still infested with the roguish attackers!
Admission is free to BSC ticket holders and children 13 and under. Some nerf guns available on a first come first serve basis. Hunt starts promptly at 1pm. While the scavenger hunt is led by responsible chaperones, we are not responsible for lost or missing children or their safety. Parents are encouraged to accompany their offspring.
