Phil: The pastoral fields of France, during WWI a place of conflict. Today, a sea of tranquility between country towns. This town with 43 peeps, the pitstop.
CLUE, Louie/Michael, 7:47 am, Drive to Reims.
Phil: Liberated from the English by Joan of Arc, this gothic Cathedral. First, teams must find the outdoor statue of Joan of Arc. A street saw player in front of the Cathedral holds their next clue.
Louie/Michael gloat about how all the other "chickens with their heads cut off" are no match for them. They call the city "REEMS."
Steve/Allie, 8:04 am.
Jet/Cord, 8:13 am. They pronounce "Reims" as REEMS, also.
Dan/Jordan, 8:17 am.
Finally there's enough light to see the damn clue. They try to interpret the clue and think maybe Joan of Arc will speak to them. As if.
Brandy/Carol, 8:39 am. Talk about getting themselves a little house there.
Teams ask directions while other teams drive semi-lost.
Dimwit Allie thinks Joan of Arc is like the Arc de Triomphe, or summat.
Dan/Jordan bitch about how teams speak lousy English in France.
Finally, Brent/Caite leave.
Saw player ... Steve/Allie, CLUE. It's the name of a champagne or wine. They get directions to where they'll find it.
In 2nd, Jet/Cord, and 3rd, Cops, find Joan of Arc statue. They get the same clue, but have different ideas of where they're supposed to go. We'll see.
Dan/Jordan get the clue as well. It's a cork, saying LeClerk Briant (spelling?) Champagne.
In last place, Jordeff leave.
