[color=purple][center][size=150][b]May Senatorial Elections[/b][/center][/size][/color]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]
This month saw the senatorial seats for Himes West (Regional Role Play) and Lyonesse East (Houses) go up for grabs. Incumbent Himes West Senator [nation]Zaberaz Hapang[/nation] ran with plans to overhaul the forum roleplay experience, as well as organize more interregional roleplays (read about it [url=https://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/41608/zaberaz-hapangs-himes-west]here[/url]). [nation]Flying Eagles[/nation] ran for Lyonesse East with more modest but no less important goals, including more Discord advertising and adding more house awards (you can read their campaign [url=https://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/41624/flying-eagles-le]here[/url]). You can also read both candidates' answers to debate questions [url=https://10000islands.proboards.com/thread/41606/senate-candidates-7-21]here[/url]. Both Zaberaz Hapang and Flying Eagles won in uncontested landslide victories. [nation]Margaux[/nation] has also decided to step down as Minister of Immigration this month, with [nation]Sulenia[/nation] being appointed to lead the department of immigration. We wish you all a successful term!

This month, regional pollster [nation]Jabberwocky[/nation] polled regarding the crucial global vaccination effort, "Have you received your COVID vaccine? If not, do you intend to get it?' This poll clearly generated interest with a total of 117 responses. 62 votes (52.99%) came from fully vaccinated people, and 38 votes (32.48%) came from those intending to get vaccinated. There were 17 votes that were either from those not getting vaccinated, either because they think COVID is hoax, religious/ethical reasons, or paranoia about chip inplantation. Fortunately, the total number of sane voters (vaccinated or intending to get vaccinated) was 85.47%, which is above the 70% needed to achieve herd immunity. You can look at all the numbers [url=https://www.nationstates.net/page=poll/p=175802]here[/url] at the polls page.

This month, Deputy Senator for Blue Canaria North [nation]AxeCapital[/nation] interviewed the biggest name in XKI sports roleplay over at [region]A Taco Archipelago[/region]. [nation]Venmere[/nation] has organized a number of tournaments under the Peregrine Cup name, and is now working with [nation]Haivon[/nation], [nation]Zaberaz Hapang[/nation], [nation]Krystalveil[/nation], and [nation]The Republic of Osea[/nation] to organize the first ever ATA Olympics.[/font]

[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]
AxeCapital: Why did you decide to make XKI your home in NS?[/font]
[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]
Venmere:When I first founded my nation, I was looking around for a region to join. I saw something about tacos in the fact page for XKI, and I joined instantly! I've been here ever since then.[/font]
[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]
AxeCapital: What is the thing you enjoy the most about XKI?[/font]
[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]
Venmere: I love how everyone here is so supportive. I never would have gotten off the ground and into the big nation I am today if it weren't for everyone else here.[/font]
[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]
AxeCapital: When did you organize your first sports tournament, and what made you decide to first organize one?[/font]
[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]
Venmere: The first Peregrine Cup was held in December of 2020. I've always been a bit of a sports nerd, and I love stats and such. It was natural for me to want to host one here after I saw that other nations had done the same. Organizing that first tournament is what launched me into RP and into ATA, and it's something I'm incredibly grateful for.[/font]
[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]
AxeCapital: What are some of your most memorable moment/moments that any of these tournaments? [/font]
[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]
Venmere: Probably my favorite moment was the semifinal of the Peregrine Cup III, in which Haivon defeated Zaberaz Hapang. It was 5-5 at the end of regulation, and Haivon beat ZH in penalty kicks. You can see the full commentary from that game [url=https://www.nationstates.net/page=dispatch/id=1535528]here[/url].
That game was a nail-biter and very tension-filled. I was pumped with adrenaline afterwards and I had to go lie down.[/font]
[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]
AxeCapital: You recently decided the consolidate all sport tournaments into the ATA Summer & Winter Olympics. What do you think will be the impact of this (Higher participation, more event types)?[/font]
[font=KohinoorDevanagari-Regular, Yu Gothic Medium]
Venmere: Since there are more events, I hope more people will want to join. Additionally, the Olympics gives it a feel different than what the Peregrine Cup had been before, e.g. it's no longer "Venmere's Tournament" but "ATA"s Tournament." I want as many nations as possible to join, and if you're reading this and haven't been in RP yet, come on over to ATA and give it a try! The first Summer Olympics will take place in September of this year.[/font]
