Odette : This is a joke right?
Lily : (Something upon the lines on "Oh my, I won again? Tee hee hee", I mean face it, she has the largest chest in the game so she would obviously win right?)
Violet : Please stop staring at me... [Afterwards] Did you vote for me? [I voted for you] O-oh my...! *blush*
Electra : I won...? *Frown* I'll try my best to live up to everyone's standard!
Elena : This is a joke right?

Date: Summer 18
Time: you have from 10 AM until 5 PM to participate
Location: church plaza area talk to Mikoto for the rules and to participate.
Description: You have to hit targets on the blanketed area with any weapon. Kings targets are worth 51 points and also disappear shortly after a new set is put out. Regular targets are worth 8 points and girl targets will be worth -30 points. You must clear all of the non-girl dummies off the mat for a new set of dummies to appear.
Noviwan's attempt: i recommend using the spear and doing single stationary strikes to poke rows of dummies. Other weapons have wider hit ranges which may cause you to hit a lot of girl targets. and for every girl target you hit you lose 30 points so just to make up for each of the girls you hit you'd have to hit at least 4 regular targets. Try to hit kings first though since that's where all the points are.
I got a little over 3000 points and took first place the prize was a gold bracelet.

Time: Evening 8 PM
Description: Just go and watch the fireworks Aden and Sonia will chat with each other.
