7th Cav Server Fund and You

  • 90
  • 0
Troopers,

Now that we are back in full swing after the new year, I just wanted to drop a note to thank everyone for their hard work making the 7th Cavalry Gaming Regiment such a great community. I just closed the books on 2021, and financially it was sort of a rough year for the Cav. There were several months where we did not meet our donation goals and the Organization ran at a deficit. Thanks to the generosity of a member of Regimental Staff we were able to operate under these conditions and maintain a slight buffer.

Some organizations require their membership to pay monthly or yearly dues to be members. The Cav has never, and as long as I have a say will never require this. This means that when you make a donation to the server fund, it goes to support the entire Regiment. In addition to the games servers we rent, we also have a support infrastructure that we maintain. This costs the Cav on average $550-$650 a month. You can see it for your self if you look here: https://7cav.us/forums/14/. Currently the Server Fund has a balance of $6259.45, on 1 March $2250 of that will go to renting the Arma Server for another year.

1st Battalion is currently in the middle of a donation drive to help fund their server for the next year, which as stated costs $2250.00. The Regiment rents this server yearly because doing so saves us several hundred dollars than if we rented it month to month. 1-7 has done an outstanding job supporting this effort. Some troopers have donated $100, some 50, some 25. All we ask is, if you can spare it, is $5 a month. Currently the Cav (according to the ADR) has well over 500 members. If every member donated $5 a month we would never have to worry about money and would be able to offer more games regardless if there were actual companies or platoons to officially support them.

We have troopers that donate every month like clockwork, thank you for that. I understand that not everyone can afford to donate...

Announcement  $1000 Donation Drive for Arma 3 Servers

1-7,

On behalf of the Cav and all of 1-7, we're please asking for donations to renew our current Arma 3 servers. Here's a message from CSM.Nexhex.A about it:

Donations: Hey All, in an attempt to be more transparent based on the recent postings by many, I setup a specific donation drive for 1-7 Arma Servers. It costs $2250/annually and we are hoping to raise $1,000 as the fee is due March 1. This wont dictate if your server gets turned off, but it does dictate the quality. For the price we pay annually we get better servers but we pay up front. If we don't have the funds upfront then we have to pay monthly, and if you pay monthly its more expensive and we would have slightly worse quality servers. I know we keep talking about donations but we have to rally now. I am looking for all of you to help push this rally. If someone can spearhead it and post an announcement in the 1-7 Announcements thread it would be greatly appreciated.

This is to maintain our current servers not upgrade them. Just for clarification!


Any amount will please help! The quality of TacR and 3 other private training servers is one of the best perks of being a member of 1-7 (and the Cav), and we can't take that for granted. If able, let's please do our best to help out and keep what we have. The only way we can do that is by relying on the generosity of our membership!

Thank you for your brotherhood and generosity!


Signed,

Announcement  TacR December!

:arma3:TacR December!


We'd like to end 2021 by making a big push together as a Battalion on our TacR Public Server in December, so please join us for TacR December! We also hope to give our hard working Section Leaders and other staff a break for most of December leading up to Furlough by providing other official events that will count for SP instead for those weeks. As a result, we've got some orders to share in advance for December only:

  • Starting in December, every Section Practice (SP) conducted in December (up until Furlough on 18DEC21), needs to please be conducted on our Arma 3 Tactical Realism Public Server. No exceptions! We need to seed the public server as much as possible to increase recruitment, showcase the Cav, and have fun while doing it!
    • SL's can either just do a free SP and play the AO, or they can focus on a topic and conduct a regular SP, just on TacR. We'll leave it up to the SL's/Platoons/Companies to decide what they do for SP while on TacR. Please consult your CoC for guidance.
    • As part of this, SL's need to make sure they've paased their Steam ID up their CoC to get Zeus access on TacR if they haven't already so they can help facilitate SP's there for their Section. Platoon Staff+ should also do the same if they haven't already. Everyone's got ~2-3 weeks notice to get this done (if they haven't already). On Sunday, when TacR will be crowded (mostly Bravo Troop), please just share Zeus and make it work as best you can.
    • Realistically, this will probably only happen the week ending 10DEC21, because we have other plans for the following weeks...
  • The week ending 17DEC21 there will be a 24 hour Public Operation on TacR hosted by S3 and we will...

The MPD has an opening for the role of Officer in Charge (1IC).

This position/role is ideally targeted to mid-senior members of the Officer group ( CPT+ ) however any outstanding candidates will be considered.

This leader role has multiple responsibilities including but not limited to:
  • Determining MP staffing levels
  • Recruitment and training of new MPD members
  • Maintenance of training materials for server administration
  • Routine conduct of training for qualified members before obtaining server/game admin rights
  • Oversight of admin activity, identifying issues, and notifying the appropriate party of abuse/misuse where it may occur.

If you would like to be considered for this role, please send a direct message on the forums titled 'MPD 1IC Candidate - Rank Name' no later than Thursday November 18th 2021. This message should be sent to GOA Chance, myself, and the COS ( for vis ). Edit: Please state clearly why feel suitable for the role. We will arrange to discuss from there.

For the command,
the XO

------
N.B. - When I say any outstanding candidate will be considered, I mean that. If you are a Sergeant and can both articulate and demonstrate how you are the most impactful selection for the role, well then the 1IC will be a Sergeant.

N.B.(2). In that event, you may be required to both take, and pass within 6 months an officer development course with a high score.
