      I’ll just keep the award in the meantime and hand it to an Ewok when we travel past Endor again:)

    “Except we are no longer operating under the name X Play anymore due to past misunderstandings over the meaning of the name and what we represent. This event was created and co-sponsored by the Kessel Group which owns and is located on Kessel Gate, along the well known Kessel Run and easy to locate.”
