State of the Rebel Squadrons -- February 2017
State of the Rebel Squadrons
III. Squadron and Academy Updates
IV. Awards and Recognition
Welcome to a new year in the Rebel Squadrons, with a new year also comes a new Fleet Commander. I know I started middle of December, I made a point to not make many changes in the middle of a session. Since that session is now over, I do have several changes I would like to make.
Executive Office Changes
First, Eric Skrevski is now Operations Officer, congrats.
Second, changes were made to Modern Gaming Platform recently. Instead of every game having its own Task Force leader, it has been slimmed down to just having Modern Cooperative Task Force Leader and Modern Competitive Task Force Leader. This was a cut from eight or so officers to three.
High Command Changes
Fulliron has replaced Kimi as Rebel Squadrons High Command Alderperson, congrats Fulliron and Thank you Kimi.
RS Fleet Commander
III. Squadron and Academy Updates
Academy News: The Academy saw the additions of Cadets Gavin Devearoux and Orlen. Cadets Persuer and Gavin Devearoux have graduated from the Academy and promoted to Lieutenant Junior Grade. Congratulations to you both.
Squadron News: This past session was a good session looking at the total number of active members participating. We had 2 Squadrons with 100% participation. Also, Red Dagger will be running an internal competition. From MGN Kimiao Quinal:
“I will also be running a squad competition for the most number of games played and reported on...which I will also give a medal out for next session. I will also be including an update whereby if people are encouraged to join the ABG and create a character and participate in a sim then I will also award another medal. Seems like the ABG is the hub of the community at the moment with the amount of participation and therefore we need to encourage more interaction and our members to continue on.”
Diamond: MGN Mat Bizegar and LJG Arexandor Clevor moved to the Academy due to AWOL. BGN Teu Veld removed due to being FC. VA Kirghy Lommax moved to Diamond 12. LJG Persuer assigned to Diamond 7. BGN Hermus Dogan marked AWOL due to non-participation in this past session.
Red Dagger: BGN Rhuryc, CMDR Mia StormChaser, and LJG BittyMERC moved to the Academy due to AWOL. LJG Gavin Devearoux assigned to Red Dagger 9.
Academy: LJG Alec_McCast removed from roster due to AWOL. LJGs Persuer and Gavin Devearoux graduated and moved into regular squadrons.
