Greetings Region 3,
The CCO has heard from me plenty already this month; sort of piece meal on topics as they came, so let’s get everyone caught up.
The RC election is still in the nomination phase. If there is anyone else who’d like to run, they have until the 31st to get two chapter CO’s to send in a nomination to the IG. All CO’s should have received instructions as to how to do this directly from the IG.
We have a new Chief of Computer Operations at SFI HQ, Tony Knopes – and may whatever gods he believes in have mercy on his soul – that is a most challenging post, and we thank him for taking it. That AB has confirmed him, so he is a full member of the EC now.
There is a new MSR template out, that I am asking chapters to use. The few early adopters we had this reporting cycle really stood out from others. Those CO’s also stated the template helped them in filing their report. There may be a few upcoming tweaks to maximize the utility of the reports and the MSR’s will finally feed into other areas for once.
The RC Cup scoring is about ready to role – to encompass the entire year. We’re going to edit that MSR template, and then chapters can report right there, in their MSR, and R3 staff can use that info to awards the RC Cup next year!
September 16th, tickets are availability here: http://sfi-nasa-trip.eventzilla.net, as is the hotel information for those traveling.
August 18 -20! There is NO event better than IC in all of fandom. For my money, nothing compares to finally seeing, for the first time or a great reunion, the friends we all talk to throughout SFI.
Please consider sending in articles to Fleet Channels – now that it is online, things show up almost instantly so we can help you advertise for your upcoming event, and we’d all love to hear how a past event went.
