Minden News #2: Christmas Break - Talent Scouting
« on: December 19, 2017, 05:02:37 pm »


The Festive Season is upon us, friends! Time to spend time with your loved ones and do some last minute Christmas shopping. As mentioned in last week's Minden News, the 51st Regiment is going on Christmas Break starting today until January 1st. During this period, there will be no mandatory events or trainings, meaning attendance for this period is completely optional. Feel free take some time off, find your nearest Christmas market and enjoy some mulled wine! There is no Tuesday Training today! The next official training is on Tuesday, January 2nd. Starting then, we will return to our regular schedule.

There will still be the Saturday Public Linebattles and the Sunday Linebattles, which we will attend with however many soldiers we can muster. The schedule for these is as follows:

Dec. 23rd - Saturday Public Linebattle at 20:00 CET
Dec. 24th - Sunday Linebattle at 20:00 CET
Dec. 30th - Saturday Public Linebattle at 20:00 CET
Dec. 31st - Sunday Linebattle at 20:00 CET




We are looking for new talent! Starting today, we are once again accepting applications for the NCO Program. We are always happy to give those with ambitions and talent to lead a chance to prove themselves. If you think you have what it takes and would like a shot at proving yourself, submit your application today! You will be evaluated not only based on your time spent with us, but also on your personal skills - There are many ways to contribute to the regiment, so don't be shy. The only hard requirement is that applicants must hold the rank of Private or above. Lastly, keep in mind that submitting an application does not guarantee you a spot as a trial NCO, we will consider each submission case-by-case.
Applications will be open throughout the Holidays until further notice.

Promotions last week included not only some of our esteemed enlisted members, but also four Non-Commissioned Officers.
On December 17th, former Corporals Backpacker, Hunter, Melchett and Unc0nn3ct3d were promoted to the rank of Sergeant. We congratulate and thank them for their continuous help with running the regiment.

In other news, NA Trainings will be formally introduced after New Year's. They are scheduled to take place on Fridays at 7:00 PM EDT/EST (subject to change) and will offer an alternative for our non-EU members to attend a weekly training at a time more comfortable for them. European members will still be more than welcome to attend these, just like we continue to welcome everyone for our regular Tuesday Trainings.

That is it for this week's Minden News! We would like to use this opportunity to remind you that, should you have any questions or concerns at all, you are always free to contact the COs or NCOs via Steam or Teamspeak. We are here to help.
With that said, we hope you have a great week and of course a fantastic Christmas.

This format reminds me of the Wipers Times.
I, for one, put forward the idea that we commission an illustrator for hilarious pictorial satire and relevant regimental memes.

In all seriousness though, nice one, hope you keep it up.
Oh and Happy Christmas all!
"Until... on Vinegar Hill... the final conclave.
Terraced thousands died, shaking scythes at cannon.
The hillside blushed, soaked in our broken wave.
They buried us without shroud or coffin
And in August... the barley grew up out of our grave."
