RTWR2016 Recruiting

Recommended Posts

It's that time of year once again!

 

Assuming that the race will go on as usual in 2016, it's time to start recruiting and practicing for the annual 'Round The World Rally.

 

The 'Round The World Rally is a race around the virtual world, run in Microsoft Flight Simulator.  The forums at Avsim, FlightSim.com and Sim-Outhouse.com each form a team to fly a virtual baton completely around the world.  The race is run completely in real time, and is usually flown in legs of up to two hours.  The team that completes their flight with the fastest overall time (after bonuses/penalties) takes home the coveted Tornado Trophy. 

 

The race is traditionally held the first weekend following Valentine's Day, which is the weekend of February 19th-21st.  If you're interested in joining the fun and camaraderie, simply reply to this thread with the information requested in the quote below.

 

Let's bring the Tornado Trophy back to the Avsim trophy case!

As far as I know its on this year, I guess it will depend on if Flightsim and Sim-Outhouse have enough for a team.  I haven't heard official word from the committee yet however but once the holiday season is over I'm sure those discussions will start up.

 

Also, Prepar3D is allowed to be used as well, just thought I'd add that to your blurb. :)

Hi Skinner,

 

We are yes, we can use all the help we can get. If you are available on Sunday, we have another get together for practice, that will help you get up to speed, you can find more info here : http://www.avsim.com/topic/483357-rtwr-team-meeting-discussion-practice-%E2%80%93-sunday-14-feb-1900-utc/

 

Glad you fly tubeliners but we usually only have a limited number of tubeliner legs, mainly fast props / warbirds if you have any of the ones on the whitelist at http://www.fsrtwrace.com/whitelist.php

 

The special rules for the race will be released tonight so this weekend and this coming week will be more and more activity for us to get ready, probably quite a few people on teamspeak all week, you can join in on teamspeak at ts.teamsvsim.com .

 

Hope to see ya there.

Just a heads up, I got my work schedule for this coming weekend and what we were expecting to be a one day show is turning into a 1 day tech/1 day show.  I will keep you updated but I may have very limited time Friday into Saturday for flying.  Sunday may be ok. Hopefully I can get a leg or 2 in.  I'll let you know as soon as I know.
