I really like the statue of Xuin Carat that FA Mitchell got me for Palpmas (see TCCOM Report #56). It's even the same one my dad had on his desk! For those wondering, the inscription reads, "Second place doesn't make you a winner". I always thought that was kinda mean when I was growing up, but I learned later that it's what Xuin said after finally winning the title in his fifth championship appearance.
The FSE has set everything up so that the COO will now be reviewing competitions before approving them, denying them, or working with the competition's submitter on modifying them before approval. The COO's also now involved in the evaluation process and gets included on a lot of the email that goes to the SOO and TCCOM, so hopefully the role feels a little more well-rounded than it was before.
LC Zekk Terrik is the new Sin CMDR, taking over for GN Earnim Branet. Good luck in your new role!
