2019 Chips 'n' Splinters Mystery Performers Clues
June 19, 2019
This year’s Chips ’n’ Splinters show will feature Mystery Performers, who will be masked and costumed so completely that they will not be recognizable – except to intuitive audience members who can figure out who they are based on the clues.
Below are clues, provided by event organizers, to the identity of two performers who will appear at 7 p.m. Friday, July 12, at Sweet Home High School auditorium. Clues are published weekly through July 10 in The New Era, or on the Sweet Home Chips-N-Splinters Facebook page.
Think you recognize a performer? Stop by the Chamber of Commerce, at 1575 Main St. and drop off your guess or submit by private message on the Facebook page. Doing so enters you for prizes to be drawn at the show. (Note: Entries should not be made in tihe comments of the Facebook post. Click the “message” button first. Guesses submitted as comments will be disqualified.)
The grand prize for correctly guessing any of the performers will be a weekend at WorldMark Seaside Resort on the beautiful Oregon Coast.
Deadline for guesses is 4 p.m. Thursday, July 11. The drawing will be held at the show, when performers are revealed. To win, contestants must be present at the show.
Performer #5: I was born a Georgia peach, but singing with my siblings on a cross-country bus for money and candy brought me to Sweet Home at the age of 15. I am a blues-loving surfer with permanent wings on my tail. I have been gazing into the same loving eyes since my 16th year, belonging to the one that keeps me safe from the crazy outlaws camping in the nearby woods. Local dancers and veterans benefit from me and wherever I am you might find me reading, while I ponder what color to put in my hair.
Performer #6: I often help bring in a fresh epoch and I will gladly debate with you on hexodoxically methodological individualism in economic matters. Born in sunny California, I ended up in Sweet Home in the mid-1990s and am now ubiquitous in my work. My weapons are made of wood, lead, plastic and glass and I have been awarded many times for my use of them. I wouldn’t boast of my ancestors’ use of their plantation slaves but I would be proud of what could be a coonskin family heirloom. My passion can be found in the community of the arts.
