Simple enough, here are my proposed region borders for the city of Leikigo:

I've already talked to Sam. She said it's fine if her settlement is incorporated into my region.

Other than that, nothing else I really want to add. Aye or Nay?

New Years 2020 - Leikigo
Okaloi Raceway

Okaloi Raceway is a purpose-built track, designed with spectating in mind and taking into account the various shortcomings of previous New Years tracks. This year, the horses from the Vrus and Alteus New Years events were transported to Leikigo to create what is known as the New Years Racing Herd, a group of eight horses with similar speeds specifically for the purpose of horse racing on Blacraft. They were named in a contest where members could contribute and then vote on permanent names to be used for the race horses. Yqt1001 contributed the necessary nametags and therefore was allowed to name a horse whatever he wanted. The winners of the naming contest were Dinnerbone, Crippling Anxiety, Yqt1001, No Strats Just Skill, 2020 Vision, and Horsey McHorseface. Yqt chose to name a horse The Hero of Central Blacraft. Due to the addition of an eighth, unplanned horse, another name—Grayson—was chosen by Yqt. Dinnerbone, Yqt1001, No Stats Just Skill, Horsey McHorseface, and Grayson had participated in past races (Vrus, Alteus, or both). Crippling Anxiety, 2020 Vision, and The Hero of Central Blacraft were new horses added to the Herd and had their debut here in Leikigo.

Like the previous two races, this year's race was planned to be run with two qualifying heats and a final heat. Since the Okaloi Raceway is pretty short, the qualifying heats were to consist of six competitors racing for three laps, with four competitors qualifying to the final from each heat. The final heat was planned to be five laps long. The races were primarily officiated by Kalassak, however Tuto and Ganxi did the countdown and released the starting gate.

The first heat ran without incident, however after the second heat it was noted that one horse which had not run at any previous New Years events, The Hero of Central Blacraft, was much faster than the rest of the field, despite speed testing prior to the event. It was decided that the horse would be removed from competition in the final, reducing the field from eight to seven. This meant that the 4th place qualifiers would need to face off in a Head to Head to decide the seventh finalist.

After the incredible performance by The Hero of Central Blacraft, the new horse was disallowed from participating in the final, resulting in the creation of a two lap Head to Head event between susxy and Tugagon.

The Head to Head race was extremely close. With Tugagon in the lead on the uphill straight before the final corner, No Strats Just Skill reared, allowing susxy to pass. However the crowd got another shock as Horsey McHorseface reared shortly thereafer, returning Tugagon to the lead on the front straight, resulting in his win and qualification to the final.

Despite the 5 lap long race, the field in the final all finished very close. On the final lap, much like the drama in the Head to Head, just before the final turn Crippling Anxiety reared while Tuto was the leader of the race, resulting in him dropping to fourth in a photo-finish across the line less than a head in front of Yqt1001. Positions beyond the top 3 were not originally able to be tallied at the time of the finish. Review of footage recorded by Bla allowed for the completion of the results tally.

After the completion of the race, a ceremony was held to present the winners of the heats and the top 3 finishers in the final with trophy banners. The banners were a vertical rendition of the Dotrugan flag, with a green and red border superimposed for the heat winner trophies or a bronze, silver, or gold flower superimposed on the flag for the podium finishers of the final.

New Years 2019 - Alteus
Alteus Square

The track in Alteus was a hastily-built square track with jumps on one straight and a slalom section on another. Like the New Years 2018 race, this one consisted of two qualifying heats and a final. Unfortunately, when I compiled these results I was unable to find the qualifying results, so only the final results are available here.

Final Results

Tugagon won his first race this year.

New Years 2018 - Vrus
Bimoomigo Aahrut Raceway

Bimoomigo Aahrut Raceway is a horse track with a 12 turn purpose-built section and a temporary "street course" that runs through the city of Vrus and adjacent areas used for the New Years festivities. For the 2018 New Years, the full 21 turn combined purpose-built & street course layout was utilized. Due to the high attendance of the Vrus New Years and the limited availability of horses, the race was run with two qualifying heats and a final heat. The qualifying heats were to be two laps long, with five or six competitors each. The top three finishers from both heats would qualify to a final heat, which would be 3 laps long. The horses were selected based on the similarity of their speeds for fairness, making this the first racing event for which this was done. The races were jointly officiated by Kalassak and Bla, who both also participated in the races.

Heat 1 Results (2 laps)

The first heat was two laps. TheMooCows chose a skeleton horse that was below the certified chosen speed and retired during the race. The top 3 finishers qualified to the final.

Heat 2 Results (2 laps)

The second heat also had two laps. The top 3 finishers qualified to the final. The race occurred without much incident, however Ventus took the wrong path between turns 17 and 18, extending the track. However, he was still extremely competitive, finishing only a few seconds behind heat winner Yqt1001.

Final Results (3 laps)

Due to the heat 1 mishap, TheMooCows was allowed to advance as an extra qualifier, making the final a seven horse race. The fastest lap was 1:18, completed by Kalassak on her final lap.

New Years 2017 - Darvincia
Darvincia Horse Track

Racing once again occurred in Darvincia - this time at the purpose-built track in the desert. Bla was the race official. The other seven users present participated in a three lap race.

Bla's timing

Official Results
05Blotz-1 lap
--KalassakDSQ - speed potion (collateral)
--AeVDSQ - speed potion

Based on video evidence, it is likely that Tuto actually finished ahead of Ventus, however lag resulted in the appearance of Tuto's horse crossing the finish line behind Ventus. This is corroborated by Fiah who announced Tuto as the winner of the race shortly after the event ended.

Fiah also used a splash speed potion which also affected Kalassak's horse, resulting in the invalidation of their results.

New Years 2016 - Auspikitan

This event was a not exclusively a horse race. It began with a horse sector that went around the Darvincia Horse Track and meandered through the farms north of Darvincia. The race then transitioned to a foot race down to Nether Island, Auspikitan. Competitors then had to craft a boat at the shoreline and maneuver between wool "checkpoints" throughout northern Auspikitan until they reached the finish line near the New Years event area.

- AeV
- Blanoxium
- l_l
- Tuto99
- Ventus

No official results were compiled for this race, as it was difficult for the race official (Kalassak) to monitor the participants and there were at least two incidents worthy of disqualification: Bong purportedly used a speed potion, and due to a misunderstanding Bla did not complete the lap around the Darvincia Horse Track before following the marked offroad section.
