Intergalactic Winter Games Off to Great Start
The Intergalactic Winter Games, being held on Hoth this year, started with a bang as the opening ceremonies had an extravagant show as the ion fountain was lit. Over twenty-eight planets had representatives at the games, even Tatooine managed to acquire a few athletes for the ice chute competition. Coruscant is expected to win the most events, but Corellia is said to give them a run for their money in the rocket ski competition.
Security precautions have been increased this year, for fear of those still loyal to the Empire making some sort of statement. Since Hoth is as isolated as it is, this is a small worry.
Some of the events starting early in the games are rocket ski, ice chute, partner hover-skating, cross-country Tauntan racing, and more. These games promise to be very entertaining as well a time for the whole republic to come together in peace and compete in some of the oldest games in the galaxy.
