Announcing the MSFS Round the World Race 2013

Posted on behalf of Mike MacKuen and Rob Ibey

We are happy to announce that the 2013 Round the World Race will be run this year. The start date is traditionally the first Saturday after Valentine's Day. That is February 16, 2013.

We have lost three members of the Executive Committee. Although they may be around to give sage advice, Matt Smith, Reggie Fields and Ian Dale will no longer be active participants. We should all express our deep gratitude for the great contributions that Matt, Reggie and Ian have made to the RTWR event and the flight simulation community more generally.

That leaves the two of us. Although some of the 2013 Race Planning has been accomplished, we shall have to ask the community for a great deal of help in mounting this year's event. We should like to expand the number of participants in the overall organization of the event – asking that a number of veteran racers take on a management-leadership role. In the next few days, we'll be making more explicit our requests.

In this note, we merely want to announce (a) that the RTWR2013 will take place in more-or-less the way that we have done over the last decade and (b) that we are going to have to make some organizational changes and ask the community to take on a more active role in governance.

Thanks for your help and understanding.
