|Wing X Wing Commander report #10 (06/10/2009)|

|Greetings pilots of Wing X and assorted guests. Welcome to another instalment of the Wing X weekly report.|
Not too much to report this week. Glad to see that the TCCOM is back online once again. Hope you’re feeling better soon as well, sir.
With the Raise the Flag competition a memory, activity has once again fallen off; at least from where I am sitting. Not too many BSFs coming across my desk and not much in the way of email traffic either. Nothing all that unexpected, really, but always something to think about as summer approaches (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere anyway).
I’m continuing to work on the next edition of the Wing Commander’s Own. As it sands now, I hope to have everything in place and the comp running by July 12 with a wrap-up date of July 26th. More details will be forthcoming but expect a lot of fliying, some fiction and some graphics – something for every taste and ability I hope. All fiction and graphic entries, with the consent of the author of course, will be posted on the ISD Challenge web site.
Up for graps are the titles – Wing Commander’s Own to the winning squadron and Wing Commander’s Elite Escort to the top two pilots based on total scores.

Wing X Pilot of the Week
Details: Each week the pilot who is deemed to have the best participation records, whether it be IWATS, flight activity, MB posting or whatever, will be awarded an IS-BW. The pilot with the best record per month will receive an IS-SW.
Medals: IS-SW for the Pilot of the Month and IS-BWs for each Pilot of the Week.
Challenge Top Gun
Details: This one is for the true gunslingers out there. Each month the pilot with the best flight record wins.
Wing X Squadron Comps
-None at present
The History of Tempest Squadron
Details: This competition focuses largely on the history of Tempest squadron. There are three elements. Flying is the first element, which will involve completing the battles TIE-TC #105, XvT-TC #80, and XWA-TC #48. Getting a battle high score is worth an IS-BW, and getting battle high scores for all three battles is worth another IS-BW. The second element involves writing a fiction piece, describing the history of Tempest squadron aboard the ISD Challenge before it became part of the EH TIE Corps. Originality and interesting characters are particular aspects to keep in mind as well as plausiblity within the Star Wars mythos. The best fiction wins an IS-BR. Finally, the third segment involves creating a squadron logo. Consider the use of colour, shapes and specific relevance to Tempest (ie. make sure it can be identified as a Tempest logo) as key points. The creator of the best logo will be awarded an IS-BR.
Medals: Multiple IS-BRs and IS-BWs
Tempest Pilot of the Month - June '09
Details: The first edition of the Tempest PotM series! The pilot with more missions flown on each week will be awarded the IS-BW (at least 10 to count). At the end of the month the pilot with more missions flown (at least 40 to be eligible, 10 for each week) will be awarded an additional IS-BW and the mighty title "Tempest Pilot of the Month". BTW, Tempest CMDR WILL NOT participate (he already had his days back in 2007) so feel free to give it a try!
Medals: 4 IS-BWs and an additional IS-BW (maximum)
Tempest Student of the Month - June '09
Details: The pilot with more IWATS Courses passed at the end of the month (at least 2 to be eligible) will be awarded an IS-BR and the sweet title "Tempest Student of the Month". Tempest CMDR WILL NOT participate (people say he'd die due to ID line excessive bloating ;P). And yes... it's obvious that nowadays there're not too many Courses to pick but I hope this will get fixed soon. On the other hand, in case of a tie, test scores will be used looking for an average in order to award the medal & title. Already passed Courses count as long as the former score is surpassed.
TIE Corps Wide
SP/MP Ace of the TIE Corps – June ‘09
Details: The rules are familiar: whoever flies the most missions wins.
Medals: IS-GW – IS-BW
Details: In each TAC report of 2008, there will be a TACcy Quote. First person to let me know from which movie it is wins an IS-BR. If you win a 3rd time, you get an IS-GR.
Medals: IS-BR (sometimes IS-GR)
TACcy Speed Test
Details: A bi-weekly competition, that deals with speed, nothing else. We'll be using one XvT free or XWA free mission each run, to be announced in the bi-weekly TAC report. The objective is to win the mission as quickly as possible. Pilot files must be submitted to the TAC via email, NOT the BSF form (TAC will BSF them for you). The one who flies the mission the fastest, will win the IS-SW. Everyone who flies faster than the TAC will win an IS-BW. TAC time to be announced when the run is over (TAC pilot file available on request if you wanna make sure I'm not cheating)
