Wow, what a week. I would like to thank everyone who came out, and for the patience displayed by the participants as we got everything sorted out. We had a very large crowd, and I hope that the participants had a good time. Because of sim logistics, and trying to balance fight and lag, I opted to go with a 3 on 3 lineup. It worked out rather well, and I hope that everyone enjoyed themselves.

Round one had Scoundrel Fleet wave 1 versus Steeltopia. Steeltopia won, but I must give kudos to the lone Armadan in the Mosquito who kept it alive until the end.

Round two was Scoundrel Fleet wave 2 versus New Babbage Navy. It was a brutal fight, but we managed to pull out the win for the home team.

Round three was a pickup free-for-all with Mosquitos. I was told that Sandi Levee won by acclimation and survival.

Emperor Calamari and I are working out the details for the Steeltopia/Babbage squareoff...I had hoped to do it last night, but Ball night and crew coordination took front seat.

I hope we can do it again sometime, and I can say I have several ideas to make the event a bit smoother should we set one up.

Thanks to:
Remington Thursday and The Scoundrel Fleet for bringing a good crowd and being good sports
Emperor SteelCobra Calamari of Steeltopia
All the individual sailors who came out
Clockwinder Tenk, for giving me the 'Voice of God' for one night

Just so I can say it, last night at the ball was the first time I wore all the 'stuff' that goes on my dress uniform. I typically just wear the plain jacket, with the Commodore piping on the sleeve.

As much as it pains me to use a Yankee as a role model, I offer the following quote about Ulysses S. Grant:

"Following his promotion at Chattanooga, Grant routinely wore "the uniform of a private with the straps of a lieutenant-general. In his dress, as in his dealings with subordinates, Grant was unpretentious."

So there you go, and now you know.

(besides, that stuff is sniper bait :P)
