DATE AND TIME: "Saturday September 26th 2100" GMT

Players will be required for TeamSpeak roll call in the TGU channel 30 minutes before the module.
Anyone who is not present 10 mins before the scheduled start time will be counted as absent and will be disallowed from participating in the next module run for the game in which the module was missed.

Module Name: Basic Squad Leader
Prerequisite: None
Instructor: Ollie_fool

What not to post:
"What time will it be in my time zone?" Work it out.
"Are non-supporting members allowed to participate?" Yes. However, supporting members get priority.
"It's not fair! I keep getting pushed out by Supporting Members!" Become one.
"Can you change the date?" No, the date is confirmed.
"I'm on the reserve list. How good are my chances of playing if I show up?" Decent. There'll inevitably be a few cancelations before the session and there can be one or two no-shows on the day of the session.


Quick Session Information
Date: 26th September
Time: 2100 GMT
Be on Teamspeak By: 2030 GMT
Estimated Duration: 1-2 hours
Server: IP/Password Given in Teamspeak
Module: Basic Squad Leader
Number of Students: 5-10
Credit badge:http://www.tacticalsites.com/~eroak/pins/BF2%20SL%20S.png

Ground Rules:
CHECK FIRE! Once on the server, hold your fire until specifically instructed to do so. This is very important so that your instructor can address everyone without background noise of weapons fire or explosions.
Listen to your instructor and follow their directions. It is important that everyone listen to the instructor and be ready to follow instructions so that the material in the module can be covered in a timely manner. The more the instructor has to be off-topic the longer the module will take to complete.
Minimize Com Chatter. Questions are greatly encouraged as part of the learning process, but many people may have questions at once. If you have a question or comment, simply type a request such as "question" or "comment" in the in-game chat and your instructor will call on you and let you have the com when they are able.

How Spots Are Assigned:
The first priority will be given to Supporting Members above non-Supporting Members. After that, People who have attended a TGU Basic Infantry course over those who have not. People who haven't attend a Basic Infantry course are allowed to sign up but will not be awared a badge until they passed or are writen off by a instructor.

A reserve list will be made up when all the playing spots are filled. Supporting members, once again, have priority. When a player with a spot cancels, they will be replaced by the first person on the reserve list.

How to Sign Up
IMPORTANT!
Players who no-show without notice for a session will be precluded from participating in the following session for the game where they were absent. Don't let your team mates down! Only sign up if you can make it. Because class spaces are limited, please don't take a spot unless you're confident you can play.

To sign up, please simply reply with the following two items of information:
1) In house squad (unaffiliated if none)
2) Your in-game name.
3) Any previous Course completion.

Please reply to this message with the above information if you wish to sign up.
Players will be signed up on a first-come first-served basis.
Supporting Members get precendence in the order they sign up, then Non-Supporting Members afterwards. Your SM status at the time of signup determines which list you will be on. Once you post, you cannot become a SM later to work your way up the list.
You can pull out, but if you reconfirm, you will find yourself at the bottom of the roster.
You may not hand over your spot to another specific player. Your spot will be given to the next available player.

Course starting now if your online get in teamspeak

Why did the class start almost an hour early? The class announcement states that it was supposed to start at 2100 GMT, I joined TS at 2034 GMT and sat for about 15 minutes and was reading forum, then I see Ollie's announcement in the forum that the class was starting at 2004 GMT???

Did I miss something??

I don't think it did start at 2100 GMT, it started somewhere around 2004 GMT, according to the World Clock and your 4:04 PM Post. It was 2034 GMT when I joined TS and at 2049 GMT (after reading the forums and seeing your post that the class was starting at 2004 GMT) I asked in TS if the class had started and everyone that answered said it had been going on for awhile. But let me ask some questions so that this does not happen to me again, I would like to take some classes: 1. GMT = Greenwich Mean Time is this correct? 2. GMT does not honor daylight savings, is this correct? 3. UTC and GMT are equal?

I think by GMT Ollie meant the British time which is +1 right now I believe
I myself thought it's gonna start 1hr later but PaintScratcher saved me

UK is on British Summer Time (BST) until:
Sunday 25 October 2009 01:00 GMT (02:00 BST)

Since most people are currently in There usual timezone + 1 (summer time), they can just do the normal conversion, if your not in summer time then it makes it different, i jsut post in GMT as its easier to conver you usual, winter, time zone to GMT that Your time zone + 1 into GMT +1. Ill post both in future/
