      The International Cartographic Association is offering a captain's scolarship of       10 VP for place names inserted into the Locations Chart in the rules section.  Interested aeronauts can select the chart from the rules and resubmit it with a prominent place name location in each of the 100 territories listed and immediately be granted the dean's award of 10 VP.  Turn in your chart to the game master electronically and we will add it to the rules as an addendum.  The project is designed to polish the game's chrome and add places you feel should be mentioned in dispatches or visited as premier in the listed territories.  Basically what is the main population center for the territory at this time period.

      Clear skies captains!
