Fellow Steampunks will discuss the ultimate in steamy competitions: tea dueling and teapot racing! Whether these makers mash up remote controlled racers with teapots to race against the clock or settle matters of honor over a field of tea, Steampunk events today offer more than just cosplay and workshops. Discover the wonderful world of tea dueling, where two contestants dunk their cookies into a hot cup of tea for a count of three before they fight gravity and soggy biscuits to be the last one holding or eating their entire cookie before it splatters. Shenanigans and laughter are guaranteed! Brought to you by Madame Askew (Mistress of Tea and professional teapot racing commentator), Chris Sturhann (head of the San Diego Splendid Teapot Racing Society), Tim Silver (teapot race winner 2016), John Bollman (teapot racer winner 2018), and Karina Walsh (tea dueling winner 2015), and moderated by Anastasia Hunter (chair, Gaslight Steampunk Expo).
