From all of us at the FSF, we wish you very happy holidays and a hopeful and warm New Year.
Tonight, Epsilon Fleet will be hosting another awards night in the FSF. This time, Epsilon Fleet hosts will be giving awards and recognition to the simmers in their fleet.
Thanks to everyone that came to Poker last night. We had a nice group of people together on Yahoo and, after finding an open table that we could take for ourselves, we had a full group of ten poker players.
After almost two hours of poker playing, we had several people with the biggest earnings of the night. Winners were determined by the biggest gain over their cash amounts at the start of the evening.
Our winners were…
First Place: FSF Hawg
Second Place: FSF Omni
Third Place: Amber
All our other places got 50 points just for showing up. Thanks everyone!
Friday at 9:00p.m. Eastern time, Epsilon Fleet will host the first Annual FSF Fleet Awards Ceremony. All are invited to attend.
The Awards Ceremony is for the Fleet Command Staff of the participating Fleets to award the members, sims, and hosts in their fleets for the hard work and fun they have contributed to their fleet over the past year.
The participating fleets as of now are Alpha Fleet, Omega Fleet and
Epsilon Fleet. If you”re not a member of one of these fleets we would still love for you to stop by and attend. If you are a member of one of these fleets then stop by and show your support.
Effective December 1, 2005, MikeM has been promoted from Omega Fleet Execitive Officer (and acting CO), to Commanding Officer. Wolf will be stepping down to XO until a replacement can be found.
Wolf has served FSF with enthusiasm for many years. Starting out a young simmer, moving up to Senior Staff positions on his games, then a Host. He earned a position as Omega Fleet XO under Morpheus, and eventually CO. While he was in Fleet Command, Omega Fleet went through a resurgence, going from one of the smallest, and least stable Fleets, to one of the strongest. Recently, with his workload increased at school, he has found it impossible to give the time and energy required to run Omega Fleet to his best abilities, thus the change.
Mike, as we all know came in with the SFOL merge, and was their XO. He had done an excellent job there in helping keep the group afloat during very difficult times. His recent move to Omega Fleet was an opportunity to become even more involved with running the day to day operations of another Fleet. His experience in SFOL allowed him to slide right into Omega, and fill in for Wolf during his Leave of Absence. He made it through a rough patch, and hasn”t looked back since. His ascension to CO seemed like a no-brainer once Wolf made his intentions known. We are confident that Mike will be a great CO for Omega Fleet.
What happens in the FSF stays in the FSF. That includes… FSF”s Poker Night! What will be done for the “FSF Poker Night”?
We will be using Yahoo! Games for a poker event. The game of choice? Hold ”Em. Each Yahoo table holds ten players. If we get more than ten players, we”ll use multiple tables.
What incentive do you have to partake? All players that show up that night will receive 50 points just for playing. There will also be larger prizes for the top three players. How will they be determined? All that play in the Poker Matches will have their scores tallied. Basically… the Yahoo money amounts for each player will be marked when the games begin. Those with the top three biggest wins will receive up to 500 points. (Note: This is using Yahoo money. There is NO real money involved.)
All FSF members that wish to partake must email me (FSF Josh) with the following information:
-FSF AMS account name
-Yahoo Account Name (to gain access… all rooms will be private)
-Your email address
This game will happen Saturday, December 10th, at 9:00 PM Eastern time. The locations of the game will be determined that night. All participants that have signed up by then will receive an email regarding the location of the game.
