The Report: The bad surprise needed a change of strategy, Lady Anne (our strategist) was not available at that time because of the different time zone, so we had to organize a fast war council: too many enemies mainly young in their 20 with the drill instructors, some professional sprinters, the Black Knight Army and only 30 prizes. We decided not to follow a tactic but to run like the hell as fast as we could by the shot. This meant to lose Long Joe but he agreed and we did. Sir giorgio and the Black Knight, head on, began the fight and ran shoulder to shoulder with faster opponents: no thoughts, no tactic, no complaints and above all no surrender. We don't have again the results and we are sure that the route was longer than 11.6 km (7.2 ml), in our opinion not less than 12 km (7.45 ml), but Sir giorgio and the Black Knight received with pride their bounty (perhaps the 24th and the 25th). Unfortunately Long Joe didn't succeed but he fought with honour. Now the black flag waves on the ruins of Tarquinia.
