Congratulations to our winners and thank you to everyone who organised and participated in the competition. Link: http://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/2...st-2014-results

The 10000 Islands received a visit from our allies in Texas. The visit saw a lot of chat on the Regional Message Board, as well as The Taco Island Texan Beach Party Extravaganza on the forum. The beach party saw some drinking, some eating, some drinking, an Ugliest Pet Show, some more drinking, a bit more eating and ended with everyone wearing sombreros. Thanks for visiting Texas! Link: http://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/2...ty-extravaganza

The current Council of Nine (the government of 10000 Islands) is composed by:

Grub (Founder)

Benevolent Thomas (WA Delegate)

TITO News

TITO Executive Officer Malecia was awarded the Bronze Star for his outstanding service to TITO. Congratulations Mal!

TITO Day was held on the 23rd of June.

The Command of TITO stands as such:

Grub (Founder/Commander-in-Chief)
Improving Wordiness (Field Commander)
Ater Nox (Tactical Officer)
Controlitia (Tactical Officer)
Malecia (Executive Officer)

TITO deployments for June included Schakastan, New Empire of Gallifrey, East Pacific, Cascadia. Pirates, Bucketheadland, Christmas and Austria.

Also in June, TITO XO Malecia was awarded the Bronze Star by TITO Field Commander Improving Wordiness. the citation read:

'We stand here before the Statue of Jesioneka to award Malecia for outstanding service.
As you all are aware [Malecia] is our TITO Executive Officer and keeps things running smoothly in the background. In spite of personal hardships Mal has been a continual source of support and been dedicated to the rarely thanked task of keeping our record / battle jackets and TITO roster updated.
Performing a repetitive task from day to day when things are going well can be challenging. Performing those same tasks even when things are not going well is outstanding.

I hereby Award Malecia The Bronze Star'

Around the Islands

The Featured Nation Program was revived in early June, and over the month Voltzenkrad and The Changeling Horde were both featured. If you would like to know a little more about these interesting nations, have a look at the links. Link: http://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/2...ion-voltzenkrad Link: http://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/2...hangeling-horde

Werewolves 36:'Vault 48', hosted by Shizensky, came to a conclusion with a victory for the communist wolves. Congratulations! Red Croatia has started sign ups for the next game, which will see the villagers face off against a group of cartoon Femme Fatales. Barry has already prepared himself for an evil role, showing us some disturbingly attractive pictures of him in a red dress.

The Resistance 9 was won by the resistance again. Spies Aersoldorf and Ater Nox were no match for the brave Resistance members Pengu, Randomain and Witchcraft and Sorcery. Or maybe that's just what they want you to think, you never can tell in this game...

The Candy Lane ran two games of Two Rooms, One Boom over the month. This game is run by PM so there isn't much to see, but it seems to have been well received by its players. The blue team won the first game, and the red team won the second.

Ater Nox opened sign ups for a new game in Taco Island. Everyone is John will see Taco Islanders take turns as being voices in a man named John's head. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

In the lottery, Barry, Witchcraft & Sorcery, Random and Aersoldorf were all lucky enough to win some tacos again. The jackpot which has now risen to 203,360 taco. Link: http://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/2...ery-back?page=8

The position of Mayor of Shelter's Taco Island has been filled. Congratulations to our new mayor Aersoldorf! The new mayor got right to work, unveiling his new mansion payed for with his hard earned tacos. And by hard earned tacos, I mean taxes and bribes. Link: http://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/2...sland-announced

The Mad Islander has gotten off to a strong start, with over a dozen articles posted. Link: http://10000islands.proboards.com/board/76/mad-islander

The Candy Land has been awarded the Fleeb Award, for his efforts in helping the XKI Universtiy. Congratulations TCL! Link: http://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/2...niversity-award

January was a very busy month in 10000 Islands Politics. Elections were held for the Senate Seats for New Republica South and Blue Canaria North. Former BCN Senator Malecia stepped down from his post as Minister of Labor to run for the Senate Seat he had held prior to his ministry appointment. Mal won with 24 of 41 votes.
Lower Columbia, in his first run for the Senate, was successful with his run for the NRS Seat and took 29 of 39 votes.

Long time Council Member Cerberion stepped down from his ministry seat. With Mal leaving the ministry for the Senate and Cerb stepping down, Paffnia was appointed as Minister of Labor and The Candy Lane was named Minster of Immigration.

The Council thanks Cerberion for his years of service and devotion and dedication to the Co9.

Other political happenings:

- Louisistan was named to fill the Lyonesse East Seat until the next election
- USSR/ Hahiha was named as the new Deputy Minister of Immigration

Grub’s award came by a single vote over Cerb’s work on the Accelerator 2.0 recruiting program and was voted tops among 39 outstanding nominees. http://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/2...ia-prize-winner

Immigration

Another busy month in the Immigration Department which saw over 20,000 Telegrams sent out. Most notable were the achievements of Coreyo and Escanaba whose combined efforts saw over 500 new nations brought into the region. Coreyo sent out the most telegrams this month, and so for the first time in over a year Escanaba is not our Top Recruiter of the Month. A hearty 'thank you' and congratulations to both! We also thank Lower Columbia, for sending out over 3,500 telegrams and maintaining a 3.6% success rate. And of course our thanks go to all the other recruiters - whether you spend hours or minutes recruiting, your help is appreciated.

* A priest went into a Taco Island barbershop, got his hair cut and asked how much he owed. "No charge, Father," the barber said. "I consider it a service to the Lord." when the barber arrived at his shop the next morning, he found a dozen small prayer booklets on the stoop along with a thank you note from the priest. A few days later a police officer came in. "How much do I owe you?" the cop asked after his haircut. "No charge, officer," the barber answered. "I consider it a service to my community." The next morning the barber found a dozen doughnuts on the stoop along with a thank you note from the police officer. A few days after that, a Senator walked in for a haircut. "How much do I owe you?" he asked afterward. "No charge," the barber replied. "I consider it a service to my region."

All three go with a Taco Island official to examine the fence. The Controlitian contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. "Well," he says, "I figure the job will run about $900. $400 for materials, $400 for my crew, and $100 profit for me." The Markanite contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $700. $300 for materials, $300 for my crew, and $100 profit for me." The Barrarabian contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the official and whispers, "$2,700." The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys!
