Re: Operational Awards, Marscon 2016
GRYPHON FLEET ORDER 1603-D, 14 MARCH, 2016

All involved spacers and marines have my gratitude and congratulations for successful operations at Marscon in Bloomington, MN, 4-6 March 2016. TRMN personnel planned and hosted not one, but two simultaneous and distinct party rooms, with our RMMC personnel debuting the “Marine Country” party. Additionally, TRMN personnel operated the Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator for the enjoyment of convention attendees. All of these operations require intensive setup and tear down and therefore required extensive team coordination and effort. TRMN personnel logged more than 280 volunteer hours during the event, and this does not even count hours of construction and pre-event preparation prior to Thursday night set-up. The result: further good reputation for TRMN in our local and regional fan community.

The following spacers and marines participated in preparations and operations at Marscon. This was a Fleet Level Event, and therefore the following are hereby awarded the HAVENITE OPERATIONAL SERVICE MEDAL:
