Thanks RG for doing my work. Damn you. :lol:

Not only did we win the Iron Mic for APP, we also had the most up time of any position on VATSIM for last week!

Great work!

We should also keep track of when we get in the top 10 and/or 5. This year we've been putting in a huge showing at the Potomac TRACON and we've been generally competitive all around. Here's my notes (I use green to indicate a top 10 finish for the week, blue for a top 5 finish).

Tower -
Nothing so far this year, but we've got several S1's moving through the pipeline and we should start seeing them moving up soon. I think that within the next five weeks we should definitely get at least one top 10 finish.

Approach -
Week 4: Potomac Approach (Mount Vernon) ranked 17th.
Week 7: Potomac Approach (Mount Vernon) ranked 9th.
Week 9: Potomac Approach (Mount Vernon) ranked 8th.
Week 10: Potomac Approach (Mount Vernon) ranked 13th.
Week 11: Potomac approach (Shenandoah) ranked 10th and Potomac Approach (Mount Vernon) ranked 19th.

Center -
Week 4: Washington Center ranked 15th.
Week 6: Washington Center ranked 11th.
Week 7: Washington Center ranked 11th.

Remember that even if we don't have a 1st place finish, continually being competitive, especially if we are ranked on multiple positions in the same week, is still an accomplishment. People will begin to notice if we're consistently staffing up facilities. I think we are doing a lot right now and if we keep it up, people are really going to start noticing ZDC.
