A dirty and stained A4 sheet of paper, printed with purple images and text in a monospaced font. A logo including a sun, with an ocean wave cresting inside it, in a shape vaguely reminiscent of a tongue ringed by sharp teeth. A large headline reading Last Resort News Report with the tagline Where Else Would You Want To Go? and the date March 24th, Year 2.
First column, headline in all caps: Winding Us Up
Well, that was a bit of a blow, wasn’t it? The good news is that that’s the last summer storm we’ll see before harvest! The bad news is that that’s because after this, they’re autumn storms!
A lot of fruit got knocked down off the trees overnight and a lot of it isn’t quite ripe yet, so while we need to collect it, it’s just as important to sort it, since we’ll need to process the unripe fruit differently! If there are wheelbarrows available, get collecting, but otherwise we’ll have sorting stations set up at the gates!
Headline in all caps: We Ship It
Our new vessel, the Ruby VII, is almost ready for its first cruise, and that means we need more sailors! Half the crew will be from the Aqua Lust, so you’ll be sailing with experienced seafolk – but that means we need more crew on the AL as well, to fill the spots of the transferees!
Sailing is fun, and comes with lots of opportunities for trade and fishing to the north and south – and maybe east soon, too! Old maps say there’s a big island out there, and the Waiheke sailors like to stay close to shore, so we might be the first to visit it in years!
Headline in all caps: Rooting Around
This year’s crop of roots looks like a real bumper, at least from what we can see above ground! That means we need somewhere to keep them all!
Next week, we’ll be digging a space under Cabin 22. It has the right kind of piles so we ought to be able to hollow out a new root cellar under there!
If you’re good with a spade and can deal with cramped situations, we need you on monday morning to get the hole started! Once stairs are cut and we’ve got an open space, anyone can take over the digging, but we’ll need barrow-wheelers to get the dirt out the gate!
