    Icon4 2017 Round-the-World Race Official Thread

    This is the Sim-Outhouse 2017 Round-the-World Race Official Thread.

    Please remember to set up your Duenna with a check mark on "Enable online flight tracking" and pick the proper event: "2017 rtw race official tracking". You also need to use the "Baton-carrier or wingman" check box if flying in that role.

    The Executive Committee will make the Start Post below and then it is to be used for the Baton (and Wingman) posts and other required information.

    Please do not make any entries in this thread until the Race begins.

    Good luck and safe flying!
