(The Musketeers 22nd Title Challenge) “Baton Change”

a writing by Richard Gildea

(Please note this is not a VN sponsored event)

The Musketeers wish to thank ‘ooor dear Maggie’ for Her tenure in carrying the Baton with such distinction during the 21st “Title Challenge”.
Her title “I Hesitantly Walked Through The Portal Not Knowing What Lay Ahead” received a deluge of submissions from “Challenge” contributors.
Yet it was in response that Maggie really excelled, by answering all in Her unique Scottish brogue. What a joy and before She is finished “Google” and other search engines will have to add additional translation, just to keep up.
Maggie Has been a delight since arriving on VN, keeping us all entertained with Her “wee conversin’s” with Her “Bestest mate Janis”.
We have heard through the grapevine, that they are both in competition in their very own 'Highland Olympiad MMXII' (We can’t wait).
Dear Maggie has chosen to hand over the Baton to one of the “Musketeers” having found some difficulty with Her initial choices, who were sadly unable to accept due to personal obligations (which is understandable). Priorities must always be addressed first.

Richard being best placed for the “Other Olympiad” which is going on in London, has agreed to step in. We feel the theme for the “22nd Challenge” should reflect this global event.

With this in mind Richard’s chosen “Title” is:- Dreams aspire to reach the sky, “When Doves Fly”

So “On Your Marks” was never more appropriate.
Good Luck everyone,
Regards, Keith, William and Richard (Porthos, Athos and Aramis)
