    FAQ

    -WHAT IS A BUCKYBALL?
    its a timetrail race where you can enter as many times as you like
    over the course of the event.
    -WHY IS IT A SECRET?
    Usually in a buckyball , ship types and times are displayed during the event.
    In this race we would like you to keep your ship type , time and route a secret till the event is over on thursday midnight.
    -WHAT DO i DO?
    fly to pongkala aiken city then look at the list of stations.
    you have to fly to any 6 of those ..in any order you want.
    then fly back to pongkala to finish as quick as you can.
    you must take a screenshot at every station visited and at the start and end of the run.
    then email the pics or link to the adress above.
    -OK IM IN!
    Cool. post your CMDR name in the thread and your intent to race
    then come back when the 8th arrives to get the station list to choose 6 to visit.
    Remember not to discuss your ship type.. or route or time till the end of the race.. keep it a secret.
    -WHAT HAPPENED TO SIDEWINDER CLASS AND JOKERS?
    I thought it was getting to complicated.. so its all got a lot simpler now sry.


    The Secret scramble is over.. unless I get any more submissions.. which I don't think any are coming.. unless its been kept secret the results are...

    ohhh nearly.. you don't want to find out the time penalty for telling the secret bit do you?

    nice to have you here guys, I hope you'll enjoy the course.. it should be a quick one.. lots of stations close to drop in.
    ill put up the list at midnight tonight.
    IX is pretty close..50 ly from pongkala if you need ships and modules.. scully power station there is good.. and with a discount ..apart from if you need a dbx..
    they may have them at lu parden. but don't quote me on that.

    Nope...

    I didn't even realise there was a system called Ix, that makes me happy. Do they have a minor faction for the guild navigators?



    Skip to 13:34 I can't seem to link it to start at a certain point

    Nganji (I think it was) also has pretty good outfitting and ships 19ly nearest High Tech to Pongkala. I've always meant to checkout IX but never got round to it, I guess now is my chance lol.

    Intent to race:

    CMDR Cookiebot
    No worries, they'll leave the board untouched*. Probably.

    * BBR7 reference. I'm not sure if they'll ever be allowed to come close to the Shotgun Shine again.

    EDIT:- Station list is up and the race is on, best of luck.

    So I should probably say.. you will see each other on the course and in the gal map if you are in open..
    so its cool for you to individually know what each other are flying in .. just keep it secret... if you want to plot and conspire.. cool.. whos to know.. just keep it secret. etc etc..
    synthesis.. go for it.. just keep it.. you get the picture.
    feel free to talk about a particular station or set of stations.. in the list.. just not your ship name.. or type.. time.. or any clue of system route on the forum pls.
    if you are not familiar with solo your map position cannot be seen by anyone on your friends list so you can keep your route secret that way.
    if you want to pop back into open at Pongkala at any time.. I will be hanging about at midnight each night. fingers crossed.

    Kaushpoos is only a couple jumps away and is fairly well stocked as far as outfitting...and had the ships that I could afford to run.
