I) In 7.03, you can use any difficulty setting you want. That's right, Easy, Medium, or Hard. However, there are pluses and minuses to this. People who fly on easy get a -5k score deduction in recalculation, and people who fly on hard get a +5k score in recalculation.

II) The Elite Squadron members will be chosen by August 15th, Squadron CO's, don't forget to report in with your selections.

III) Bob Squadron has been disbanded.

IV) Five narratives were written for 7.02, and I'd like to personally thank Captain Tiar Garnin, MGN Bethan Leitbur, Lt. Commander Licah Fox, Major Ryan Coburn, and Commander Dash Xander. You all wrote excellent stories, I know I enjoyed them, I chuckled at quite a few! Everyone else can view them in the ZIP file containing the missions as well. I highly recomend reading all of them, they're quite good. I especially liked Licah's, my stomach is still sore from that one. ":)

As always, these narratives are put up onto the R2F's ITOD site where they can live on, perhaps someday, other young eager pilots may stumble across them that will help them form their own characters.

-- Awards for R2F's Tour 7, Mission 2

Major Ryan Coburn, please step forward. Though your grammar was quite horrid, no offense (lol) but it is the content that counts. The narrative you wrote reminded me that battles don't only take place in the cockpit. But with gunnery crews, technicians, and sometimes innocent lives. It was a very unique perspective during the 7.02 battle, and I think others should read it. Narratives don't always have to be written within the cockpit. So, I hearby award you the Mission Report Medal. {]-R2F-MRM-[}

Lt. Commander Licah Fox, front and center. For getting the highest score in this mission by far, you are awarded the Top Ace Award. {]-|Top-Ace|-[}

Congratulations to these excellent officers!
