    Welcome to the latest Iron Mic attempt featuring Gold Coast. With a lovely new ORBX City Scene scenery package released and some fantastic freeware available, why not fly into the Gold Coast? With VFR and IFR traffic welcome, make sure our controllers are working hard.
    The following positions will be the primary positions:
    To give us the best chance possible, please logon to the above positions at Gold Coast prior to occupying others. Remember, There are no reserved positions so if one of the above positions is available, logon!
    What is Iron Mic?
    Iron Mic is a weekly competition that VATSIM holds which recognizes a position with the most hours logged on the network. It is broken into 3 categories; TWR, APP and CTR. The position in each category that logs the most online hours over a 7 day period wins the Iron Mic. 
    How do we know about our progress?
    Click on this link (http://fsmine.dhis.org/stats/showstats.cgi) to view all the VATSIM ATC stats for the week.
    Remember, Our aim is to keep the TWR, APP and CTR positions open as much as possible. Coordinate with other controllers to ensure maximum coverage of the Gold Coast positions. You can do this on Facebook or the forums. 
    VATSIM has set out a few rules regarding Iron Mic which can be viewed here https://forums.vatsim.net/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=11100
    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
