Report # 45
February 5, 2017
Another quiet week for our corner of the TIE Corps. My report is going out a bit early today as I'll be watching the Super Bowl game this evening (go Falcons!).
In other news, I've launched a fiction competition for Beta pilots to submit to. It's a fun one I've done before so hopefully some of you enjoy writing a submission for it. Check out my email from earlier today as well as the report below for more details.
Now, on to the Tale of the Tape.
* This week's winner at our Target Identification competition with a total elapsed time of one minute and fourteen seconds was LC Kyle Kroan! Congrats, your Iron Star is on its way to you!
* January came to a close, and with that, LC Kyle Kroan took this month's Pilot of the Month award. Congrats! An Iron Star is on its way to you!
* Thus far we've had no activity this month so right now, everyone is tied for the lead in this month's PotM competition. Who will take it this month? Will LC Kroan go back-to-back or will someone grab it from under his feet? Will it be a repeat offender such as GN Harvey or LCM Dan-Elin or a newcomer? Stay tuned to find out!

Is Hazing Still a Thing?
Unbelievably, GN Coranel Both will have served as BetaCMDR for 1 year as of March 15th. To "commemorate" this event, you are invited to write a fiction to haze said CMDR (as we can't let this achievement go to his head). No minimum or maximum word count; simply detail the adventures in hazing the Squadron CMDR and submit your entries to him by March 15th. Winner gets an IS-BR!
As a STRIKE squadron, all pilot in Beta Squadron must have the ability to identify a target based on what is sometimes partial info from the Intelligence Division. Each week in the WSR, a picture of a particular target will be included in that WSR. The first member of the squadron to reply back with the correct name of the target (which can be a person, ship or location) wins an IS-BR. Overall winner for the month will get an IS-SR.
To participate, log into the TC site
, and click on the link below. The database will track how long from when you first clicked the link below to when you submitted the answer, so there won't be any advantage to whomever completes it in the closest time to the WSR being sent, but whomever completes it in the shortest amount of time correctly.
Last week's winner (and answer): LC Kyle Kroan (Pablo-Jill)
* TCCOM Report 100: Write a short (500-800 words long) story for the introduction of the TCCOM's 100th report! Submit your entry to Woody!
