My Alluring Alain, it’s a pleasure to be a sponsor for this years Federation Day. Donating an impressive 1 Billion ISK to the celebrations!

@Gosakumori_Noh How much do you love the Federation? Would you match me?

I would also like to take this time to submit my bid for Mr. Federation!

Intriguing.

I’m down with reasonably extravagant gestures. Being a new immigrant, I am not familiar with Mssr. Colcer. If an individual of such impeccable reputation as Julian T. Flavours is vouching for him, however, what could possibly go wrong?

All right, fine, I’m sure he’s a capital fellow despite any such association.

(edit: posting receipts seems a little nouveaux crasse, darling, but I suppose it does serve the interests of Transparency…


I’m confident the Gallente ponder questions like “is it really cash?”
)

I am skeptical anything could promise a brighter future for the Federation than my election as President, however.

Hmm.

Perhaps I should expand on how my six colonies across five demographically advantageous systems are contributing to ethnic togetherness; along with how my Atlangeins Iridium Pellet And Heavy Missile Mart demonstrates connectivity with small family-owned businesses popular among my Jin-Mei and Mannar constituencies.

Thank you for your patronage Madmoiselle, it will be used accordingly for the events scheduled.

Man, for a few minutes I was thinking of entering the competition myself, but now it seems pointless.

Let it be known that I, Ferrinn “Fox” Vuhs, harvester of exotic ice, hereby formally submit myself as candidate for Mr. Federation YC124!

I recognize I am the under-dog (or perhaps under-fox?) against more wealthy competitors, so I graciously accept any help I can get in the areas of wardrobe, photography, and public speaking.

Nonsense! What better way to shout to the Universe, “This is ME!” :heart:

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! But you are by far not the under-Fox. :heart:

Fine. I’ll enter just to prove Fox he can win against more wealthy competitors.

Can I be the all powerful Over-Fox then Julian?

Got some good competition building here folks, anyone else brave enough to throw their hat into the ring against this almost-famous stuntman?

When you say “submit my bid for Mr. Federation” does that mean you think you are buying the win with your ISK?

There’s no fee to enter, but methinks there is a fee to win.

(insert nervous-making cliffhanger music here)

Not at all my Vixen Vuhs! My donation as a sponsor and bid for Mr. Federation are totally separate! And is no way a ploy to influence the IGS. :heart:

In celebration of Che Biko and his decision to compete, and in recognition of Julian’s influence on the local economy, I’d like to make a little fiscal announcement of my own. I’ll match the amount donated by others, and throw in a little more:

And as an honest, hard-working man…I don’t find any need to hide my bank account balance from the world, since every ISK of it was gained through legitimate means. Not specifically implying anyone else’s wasn’t.

Ferrinn Vuhs…he’s so Federal that it hurts

Well I wouldn’t want any “Tim, Rich and Henry” flirting with me just for my bank account. :kissing_heart:

I suppose that I should make at least a token effort to defend my hard-earned title of Mister Federation and potentially earn a third year streak! I will therefore announce my candidacy for Mister Federation YC124/FC239 with immediate effect.

I would also like to announce a couple of further candidacies for Miss Federation: that of Captain Anataine Deva, and that of Director Pamitha Devara of Devara Biotech.


Captain Anataine Deva - Federation Day’s premier financial donor and a stalwart advocate of the Federated Union of Gallente Prime as a force for unity and justice in New Eden.


Director Pamitha Devara - One of the Federation’s brightest upcoming scientists. Winner of Federation Day’s Miss Federation YC122/FC237 and the Champion Racer of the Luminaire Race for that year.

I wish all contestants the best of luck and look forward to seeing further entries into the contest. Remember, vote for whom you believe represents the core ideals of the Federation. I am of the belief this competition should recognise the best amongst us that have aspired to the values that make our Federation the envy of the cluster and a beacon of hope for those that seek out refuge in the maelstrom that is New Eden.

Good evening Sing Laison and the surrounding communities. Just a quick reminder that every vote for me is one less vote for each for every one of my competitors. So maximize your vote! I thank you for your support.

Oh I know that, but some might not and I wouldn’t dare draw their attention away with my bank account :wink: . And besides, Tom, Rich and Henry are nice fellows, just a bit too… ordinary.

Isn’t this cute.
