The Eagle’s Club took the trophy this year at the Second Annual Roslyn Bar Wars Water Balloon Battle. The trophy that sat proudly for a year in the window at Marko’s Place is now sitting inside the Aerie 696. Though the Eagles took the prize this year, the real winners are ARRF and the Roslyn Library, who will be splitting the $1000 raised at this year’s event. The event was well attended at both venues and the streets were crowded with innocent observers and under-aged insurgents.
This year’s battle was scored on 3 criteria: most spirit and enthusiasm (won by Eagle’s), hardest fought battle (won by Marko’s), and most money raised (won by Eagle’s). In addition to over 2000 balloons, participants on both sides battled with hoses, buckets, super soakers and squirt guns. The Eagles had a massive slingshot to launch balloons deep into Marko’s territory, but Marko’s didn’t go down easy. In one instance, the Marko’s team even pushed into Eagles territory and stole some of their ammo. Thanks to all who participated! More photos are available here!
