Cross the Land: Update #1

Hello VATSIM! The planning team is happy to announce that the airport voting process will open on the 1st of July 2021 at 00:00z! However, we are having a different system this time around to balance out the votes. We will be using a Single Transferrable Voting (STV) system this time around. This will mean that voters will be able to choose a first and second choice. But what does this mean? This means that if your first choice airport get's passed a certain threshold (which means that they are automatically in the event once they pass that) your vote will then be transferred to your second choice instead. This will allow us to give equal opportunities to all airports that applied.

We have also got another announcement to make regarding the date of CTL. Cross the Land has been brought forward a bit to the Saturday 2nd of October 2021. We want to be honest with you as to the reasons for this change. This change has come about due to a scheduling conflict with another major VATSIM event. Out of respect for that planning team we will not name who as we would then be announcing their event for them. This conflict came about due to a breakdown in communication between VATSIM Marketing and the CTL team. We thought we were there was a clear run for the 16th however, it seems we were speaking with the wrong people. 

Now we have explained that we want to stress that this will not change your pilot experience. We have simply changed some of the deadlines for our planning. The second bit of good news for you is that this change means you get to fly CTL earlier than you thought! How awesome is that! 

Remember do not leave things to chance! Make sure you vote for your preferred airports if you want to see them on the event list this time around!

Cross the Land: Update #2

Ding dong! Hello all! So today voting was supposed to start! As you know things don’t always go to plan and frankly life would be boring if everything was plain sailing. So it is with regret that we delay the voting opening till 5th July. This is due to a developer who has fallen ill and we still need to make the voting system perfect for you! If you have any questions let me or the core planning team know and we will help as best we can!

The following airports are participating in the vote:

Large airports:
 Brussels Airport (EBBR)
 Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (EHAM)
 Istanbul Airport (LTFM)
 Copenhagen Kastrup Airport (EKCH)

Medium airports:
 Palma de Mallorca (LEPA)
 Budapest International Airport (LHBP)
 Düsseldorf (EDDL)
 Nice Côte d'Azur (LFMN)
 Warsaw Chopin Airport (EPWA)
 Lisbon International Airport (LPPT)

Small airports:
 Praha Ruzyně (LKPR)
 Bratislava Mr. Štefánik (LZIB)
 Bologna Borgo Panigale (LIPE)
 Henri Coanda Bucharest International Airport (LROP)
 Zagreb / Franjo Tudjman (LDZA)

 Queen Alia International Airport (OJAi)

Is there any topic where this event is described in a bit more detail? Is it an event that starts somewhere and then continues in an easterly direction? is it localised or global? Is for all types of aircraft? etc...

It's mentioned on the start-screen of their homepage: Cross The Land is an event on the VATSIM Network which is hosted twice a year by the VATMENA and VATEUD teams!

The sentence gives away the fact that it's an event between the VATMENA and VATEUD regions, that it happens twice a year and that the direction of travel alternates, just like the modalities of Cross The Pond. Hence "Cross The Land". See also previous editions of this event:

Smart answer! Says the direction of an "event", says how often the "event" happens, asks for voting on airfields/airports for the "event" and previous editions of the "event" say the same thing except for the direction.

Please Andreas do not bother answering I will send a PM to Chriss who I am certain will be more helpful.

Just another example of where if you do not want to be constructive then best to move on to next article that meets with your approval..as usual.

Thank you for promising to NOT help me again. I do not need your sarcastic "help". Chriss on the other hand was most patient and helpful.

PS: Moderator(s) just advising that I will not continue this by commenting further even if Andreas wishes to "help" again.🙂
