    Around the World Race 2012 Practice to Begin

    It is time once again to invite all Sim-Outhouse members to join our Around the World Race Team aka Team Outhouse. The race will not be until the first Saturday after Valentine’s Day but the first practice starts November 25th at 0:00 UTC. This will be a fly as you can informal practice session. It will give us a chance to knock the rust off of our respective race planes and get back into race mode.

    The Practice rules have been posted in the hide out if you already have access please test your access to make sure you can get in. If you would like to join the team for the practice, just send PRB or myself a PM and request access to the hide out. If you have no real desire to join the team you can still fly with us in the practice. Just join us on TeamSpeak3 and the FS Host Server.

    This is sure to be another exciting fun filled year.

    Team SOH needs YOU!!!!!

    I am a bit surprised by the lack of interest shown so far by the recent announcement of the first practice session for the Round the World Race. This race takes place every year between four of the leading Flight Sim related forums (SOH, Flight Sim.com, AVSIM.com and I Fly Online.com) and it is a lot of fun for those involved.

    It is truly a 'team' event and requires team members in order to participate. Last year all the forums struggled to find enough members to run the teams and this year looks to be no different. We need FSX and FS2004 pilots to fill empty spaces on the team. You don't need to be an 'expert' pilot by any means and there are support roles for people who can't fly very well at all (or even have a flight sim as my wife participates in a support role by keeping track of what all the other teams are doing). The practice sessions are intended to bring people up to the required skill levels anyway.

    We particularly need team members in Europe, Australasia, Hawaii and/or Asia as their local time zones are especially beneficial. The race takes place in real time (over several days) and people in those time zones are able to fly while the majority of the team (based in North America) get some much needed shut-eye!

    If you have any interest at all then shout up and join us on the team, we need you and SOH needs you if we are going to compete again this year.

    More info on the race can be found here:

    If you can fly from one airport to the next, without crashing, in bad weather, and at night, in a fast plane, then you are qualified. There are a few things we need to practice, like "baton" transfers, team speak communications, and getting comfortable in your favorite speedy ship, but essentially, this is not difficult stuff. Team SOH won this race in 2008, and we would like to bring the trophy home again in 2012!
