Also, I have to say...I see THE YO as your location, and I just want to say that I am a local as well! Or, rather, I am from the area and went to college there. I do live in that state up north now.

I live slightly over the PA line, but go Penguins!

Year 1, Chapter 6- November 2022 Results
"Greenland is Ice, but Iceland is Nice"
-D2: The Mighty Ducks


It had been a good week and a good weekend. We had been hard at work at the office for most of it, of course, but on Thursday several of the employees, knowing that I was still missing some of the comforts of home in America, had thrown a surprise Thanksgiving feast. There was even Turkey! Thankfully, Iceland grocery stores seem to carry them! They prepared it a touch differently than what I was used to, but it was still a great meal and a great day.

Today, it was Monday, and first thing in the morning, it was back to work. Katja had just brought in the November 2022 results, and it was time to take a look and see how are athletes had done. We had, of course, started the month with some bobsledding in Canada, but there had been other action later in the month as well.

Quick Author Note: I had to delete a few figure skating results below to fit the post in. I will summarize below, but in short....not good!

So, what all had happened? First off, there had been some figure skating. We had qualified one ice dancing team for the grand prix circuit this year, but the results were not great. Last of 17 teams in one event, 16th of 17 in the other. That means that they will not move on to the Grand Prix Final.

There had also been some Alpine Skiing of varying sorts. There had been two World Cup womens slalom events in the month, and one giant slalom event. We were fortunate enough to have had two athletes in all 3 events.

Each slalom event had had 75 entries, while the Giant Slalom had 83rd. Karen Vilhjalmsdottir had been 53rd and 73rd, and Julia Leifsdottir finished 75th and 74th. In the giant slalom event, Karen finished 83rd, while Julia finished 75th. No points for either, unfortunately, since you need to get Top 30 for those.

In the one mens downhill event, Viktor Armannson took 63rd out of 76th skiiers. Unfortunately for us, he did not get a chance to participate in the Super G the same weekend, as he has only been at top form for Downhill this year. No points for him, other, unfortunately.

Was this a good month for us? Hard to say. There had been a couple of decent results, but it was concerning to see a spate of poor performances from Olympian Julia Leifsdottir. Though, to be fair, she did generally perform better in the downhill and Super G, so that will be something to look forward to in December.

What else in December? More bobsleigh for sure. Probably some snowboarding, too. First, though, was a trip to see some ski jumping. Maybe we would get some World Cup points there? We will have to find out!

Year 1, Chapter 7- Airborne
"Greenland is Ice, but Iceland is Nice"
-D2: The Mighty Ducks


I found myself on the ground, once again, which was a bit funny if you thought about it, since today was all about being airborne. The location was Vikersund,Norway, and it was time for the Women's Ski Jumping Continental Cup. As had often been the case this year, I was watching a lower-level competition, since Iceland still did not have many participants in proper World Cup events. Rakel Hilmarsdottir, our top ski jumper, would be competing in the Continental Cup this year, and I was looking to see how things were going.

Part of the reason for needing to do that was the man next to me, Janne Matinen, our coach. He was once a competitor for the Finnish national team in ski jump and now coached Rakel and our other elite level ski jumpers (who were sadly nonexistent at this point). He was very positive and upbeat, which was great. Unfortunately, he also was prone to being overly optimistic, sometimes ignoring reality. He had, for example, suggested during the summer that Rakel might get World Cup points this year. However, a Continental Cup invitation had barely materialized, much less a World Cup place. I wasn't even sure that she was likely to get points in the lower cup, to tell the truth, but Janne continued to insist that she was going to be right up there with the best of them.

The competition was starting soon enough, so we would see if he was right.
**************************************************
As it would happen, Rakel was one of the last jumpers to go. Many of the preceeding women had been quite good, and it would be difficult to match, in my opinion. When her time at the starting gate was approaching, I pushed Janne for some information.

"Janne, how far does she need to jump to get into the Top 30 here?" I asked.

He hesitated, as though he didn't want to offer up the information.

"Probably about 90 meters" he finally offered.

"And how far did she jump in the practice round?" I followed up.

A longer pause. "About 75 meters."

A shot him a look, and he immediately pivoted his attention up the hill.

Rakel was settling in to the starting gate. She looked focused. Like all of the other ski jumpers, she pushed off from a seated position, remained completely still as she rocketed down a ridiculously long ramp. Then...flight!

Ski jumping is a quick sport once you get in the air. You are there for just a few seconds, then land far more gracefully than should be possible, and then it's done. Rakel landed smoothly, and Janne pumped his fist and shouted "Yes!".

I looked to the scoreboard. To my untrained eye, she had looked like she had gone less far than the other jumpers, but I needed to be sure.

82.0 meters. Not bad, honestly. I could see why Janne was excited, since Rakel had bettered her practice jump by a good margin. She had also landed in front of several other jumpers (I would later confirm that it was 5 jumpers who she had beaten).

She was not, however, anywhere near the Top 30. 52nd place was not necessarily a bad thing, of course, but it wasn't going to get you Continental Cup points, much less World Cup points. I made a note to take everything Janne said with a grain of salt going forward.

The next day, I would unfortunately be further proven correct, as there was another day of competition. This time, Rakel unfortunately finished in last place during Jump 1, which meant no Jump 2 and no points. We had work to do.

Year 1, Chapter 7b- Bobsleigh Update
"Greenland is Ice, but Iceland is Nice"
-D2: The Mighty Ducks


I was waiting at the Airport gate in Oslo Norway, about to fly back to Reykjavik, when my phone rang. It informed me that it was, in fact, Bobsled time, which meant that Gunther, our bobsleigh coach, was calling me.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNJN-1MvnWg

"Gunther, what news do you have for me?" With a flight upcoming, I had no time for pleasantries today. Thankfully, Gunther must not have either, because he jumped right into the conversation.

"Do you want good news first or bad news?"

"Give me the good stuff first" I replied.

"We took a 15th place of 17 teams in one of the events in Park City this weekend. Took 11th in the second run to move u from last." He paused "16th and 17th in the other two events." He continued, knowing I would want that information.

"That is good news," I offered. "So then what's the bad?"

"Emilia got injured during the last run today. Possibly a hamstring problem. We are going to need to wait and see, but there is a chance she will be out for the runs in Lake Placid later this month."

I grimaced. Seeing that happen to one of the few investments we had made was not a good sign.

"Okay, keep me informed."

I got on the lane shortly after, wondering yet again if this Bobsleigh experiment was going to be worth it.

I update this thread once each week! Short post today, because I spent the weekend fixing bugs on the program. I had some good success, and I believe I have made some subtle improvements that will help build up the game and also make this dynasty thread a touch easier to run. At any rate, NEXT week will be back to the office for remaining December results.

Year 1, Chapter 8- December 2022 Results
"Greenland is Ice, but Iceland is Nice"
-D2: The Mighty Ducks


"Jeff, I am so, so, sorry...."

"Katja, it's fine. It's fine." My voice tailed off. Even I wasn't actually sure if it was fine, but I was trying not to let her know that.

I had been heading towards the door with my coffee. Katja had been heading to the other side of the door with this month's reports. A few moments later, all of this month's reports were scattered on the floor. Unfortunately, so was my coffee, and a few of the reports looked unrecognizable.

We had a mess on our hands.

*****************************************************

A few minutes later, things were calmer, and we had decided that Katja, who had already read the reports, would simply summarize December 2022.

"Alright, so we had competitions in Alpine Skiing, Cross Country Skiing, Ski Jumping, and Bobsleigh this month. Which would you like me to start with?" began Katja

"Let's start with Alpine Skiing."

"The European Cup, which is the 2nd level of skiing, started up this month. We did have one skier, Sara Ingolfsdottir, get 23rd place at a downhill event in skiing. Most of the rest of the events were not as successful, but we did at least get some competitions in for a number of athletes. The World Cup, we did not get any points, but there were a couple of good results. Karen Vilhjalmsdottir got 45th out of 75 or so in one of the slaloms, and Julia Leifsdottir was 51st in the same event. Julia also had 41st in a world cup downhill this month as well. Still no points for either of them, but they got closer a couple of times. Unfortunately, Viktor Armannson did not have a lot of success in the downhills in Beaver Creek early in the month, though."

I nodded. Nothing too exciting, but a couple of good results at least. "How about cross country?" was my next question

"As you know, the press is a touch disappointed that we do not have anybody in the World Cup this year, so we have sent our top skiers to the Scandinavian Cup instead. We had a weekend in Norway, and it really did not go all that well. The men really struggled. Julia Sigurdsdottir was in the Top 30 of the second 10km race, but given that there were only 36 entrants, the coaches did not seem very excited."

That was, to be fair, an expected result, but not one that anybody was going to be happy about. Cross country skiing was one of the few sports where we had homegrown coaches, and they seemed to be struggling to connect to the skiers and and interest the population at large.

We quickly moved on to Ski Jumping.

"Janne was really pleased with how Rakel jumped over the weekend."

"When is he not?" I shot back. Katja ignored me.

"She took 52nd and 38th out of 57 on the two Continental Cup competitions."

I shut my mouth. Janne was too optimistic by some margin, but 38th was a definite sign of progress.

"Okay, well, that seems like a good thing", I offered. "Now what about Bobsleigh?"

We had made the decision to send Katla and Emilia to the next competition, despite not being fully recovered from the hamstring injury earlier in the month.

Katja looked a bit dismayed. That probably meant that she had bad news.

"17th of 17, followed by 17th of 17, followed by 16th of 17. They were dead last in 5 of the 6 runs this weekend."

Not a shock, but not great. Thankfully, they would have some time to recover and train before European Championships and the World Junior Championships.

But that would have to wait until after the holidays. And this coffee spill. I hoped that the stains would come out of the carpet. Happy New Year, indeed.

Year 1, Chapter 9- January 2023 Results
"Greenland is Ice, but Iceland is Nice"
-D2: The Mighty Ducks


I finished typing, and clicked save on the file. I sighed with relief. The final task of the morning was done. I had just finished a press release that we had been sending out to the Icelandic press every month. That was my last task to do before heading out on our next trip. The European Youth Olympic Festival started this weekend, and I was to be there as part of Iceland's delegation. It was technically going to be my first time marching in an opening ceremony, which would be interesting.

I closed the computer. Time to get ready to go!

************************************************
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Icelandic Athletic Committee would like to announce the following results and highlights from winter sports athletes during the month of January 2023.

Alpine Skiing
The Icelandic Ski Team continued to compete on both the World Cup and European Cup this month. In the world cup, Karen Vilhjalmsdottir continues to be our most consistent slalom skier. On January 6th, she nearly got world cup points, coming in 36th place out of 75 starters. Speed Skier Viktor Armannson had several finishes in the 50s and 60s, while Olympian Julia Leifsdottir has continued to struggle to find her form.

On the European Cup, multiple Icelandic skiers are gaining experience, but were unable to gain any points in January.

Bobsleigh
Social media darlings Katla_Vilhjalmsdottir and Emilia_Olvirsdottir continued their season by appearing at both the Junior World Championships as well as the European Championships. At the European Championships, they started the first run in 50th out of 50, but improved to 43th for the 2nd run, 48th for the 3rd run, and 43th for the 4th run. While that puts them far down the standings, it does show that they are off to a strong start in their bobsleigh journey competing against Europe's best teams, including the tough German squads.

In the junior world championships, things were more favorable. 27th out of 32 in Run 1, followed by 29th, 27th, and 27th in the remaining three runs. They will still be eligible for junior worlds for two more years, and we look forward to seeing them compete for medals in the future!

Cross Country Skiing
6 male and 3 female skiers competed at the Scandinavian cup minor circuit event in Estonia. The highlight of the weekend was Benedikt Johnsson, who far outperformed his 701st ranking in the world to finish 20th of over 65 participants in Saturday's sprint race and receive our first Scandinavian Cup points of the season. Julia Sigurdsdottir followed as well, securing a 25th place finish out of 36 in both Friday AND Sunday's Women's 10 km events.

Figure Skating
Guomundur_Sigurdsson and Katrin_Leifsdottir turned in a strong performance at the European Figure Skating Championships, finished 21st out of 51 in the rhythm dance, qualifying them for the original dance. They slipped to 28th in the original dance, but overall had a great competition.

Alex Robertsson did not qualify for the free program in men's figure skating, but since he is eligible for junior world championships, he still has another big competition later in the season.

Luge
Daniel Stefansson competed in his first Junior World Cup Luge events. While he finished 39th of 39 in both events, he did improve during the course of the event. In Saturday's race, he was 39th in both runs, while on Sunday he finished 37th and 38th in the two heats, though that unfortunately still led to a 39th place finish overall.

Short Track Speed Skating
Iceland sent two representatives to the European Short Track Speed Skating Championships. Each of the 40 plus men's and women's competitors competed in 3 different events. Telma Jonsdottir had a high finish of 24th, while Arnar Hilmarsson had a high finish of 30th.

Skeleton
Daniel Vilhjalmsson represented Iceland valiantly at the European Championships, but unfortunately finished 29th out of 29 in the event.

Ski Jumping
Rakel Hilmarsdottir continues to represent Iceland in Ski Jumping's Continental Cup, and competed in 8 events this month. She received her first points of her career on January 15th, when she finished in 29th place. She also placed 37th in a different event later in the month

Snowboarding
Daniel Olvirsson participated in two European Cup snowboardcross events, but did not finish in the Top 30 in either event.

[END Year 1, Chapter 9]

Sorry about being a day late this week! As always, remember that you can help improve Iceland's fortunes! With any comments you make on this post, you get Dynasty Points that you can spend at a later date to increase Iceland's budget. I update this thread once each week! Next week we FINALLY get a look at our young snowboarders during the European Youth Olympic Festival.

Year 1, Chapter 10- European Youth Olympic Festival Results
"Greenland is Ice, but Iceland is Nice"
-D2: The Mighty Ducks


It had been a long week, but I was heading back to Reykjavik from my first ever European Youth Olympic Festival. It had been a fun week, but had we won anything? Well, in short, no. Did we come close? Also no. Hopefully it was good experience, particularly for the athletes who will be returning next year, but our kids are not at medal levels yet.

************************************************
Our young Alpine Skiers had 10 different events to compete in during the week.

In Downhill Skiing, Benedikt Armannson had had a respectable finish, coming in 13th of 57 youth skiers. In the Super G, his weaker event, he had finished 47th. Viktor Stefannson had finished 41st in Giant Slalom and 45th in Slalom. Viktor Sigurdsson was 45th in the Combined.

On the girls' side, Sigrun Sigurdsdottir was 49th in the Downhill, 35th in the Super G, 45th in Giant Slalom, and 46th in Slalom. Sigrun Armannsdottir was 50th in the combined.

The next sport we were watching was Cross Country Skiing, where we had Kari Leifsson in the 3 boys' distance events. At 18, this is his final chance to be in the EYOF. He was 55th out of 58 in the 15km event, 58th in Skiathlon, and 29th in the 50km, by far normally his best event. It was disappointing, to say the least.

Finally, we had athletes competing in Snowboarding.

Emma Stefansdottir was 30th out of 49 in the Halfpipe, Daniel Robertsson was 18th out of 43 in the Slopestyle and 34th in the Big Air, Emma Olvirsdottir was 17th in Slopestyle, Emilia Stefansdottir was 33rd in the same event and 34th in the Big Air.

It definitely is! Hopefully that can transfer to European Cup and maybe World Cup down the line. Right now, that is only against fellow Youth Under 19 competition.

Year 1, Chapter11- What in the Worlds
"Greenland is Ice, but Iceland is Nice"
-D2: The Mighty Ducks


There was a knock on my office door.

"Come in!" I replied cheerfully. I had reason to be. Katja had brought coffee! (And pastries)

It was a Tuesday morning, and it was my first day back in the office after a long month (mostly) spent on the road.

"Jeff, it feels like forever since we have both been in the office." Katja exclaimed.

"Because it has been!" I replied. "I was at the Nordic World Championships for quite a while."

"And then I was at the Snowboarding and Freestyle Skiing World Championships" Katja responded.

"And right about the time you got back from that, I was on my way to the Alpine Skiing World Championships" I bantered back.

"So how about we touch base and go through these reports?" She was cheerful

"Sure. I'll go first" I was cheerful, too.

************************************************
"So, the Nordic World Championships were interesting. We had competitors in Cross Country Skiing and Ski Jumping, but not Nordic Combined. We really did not have a lot of success with cross country, which was expected, but not good. I think maybe 38th place was the best I saw, and that was Sigurdur Olvirsson in the sprint event. I really suspect that we are going to need to invest in some youth cross country skiing resources, because we really should not be finishing quite this low in events like this. I would characterize ski jumping as a bit more positive, though. Rakel Hilmarsdottir did not make it into the final 30, but she looked like she belonged. I am really hoping that we can push her along over the next several years....it might lead to some good things.

At any rate, the weather was great, and it was a fantastic trip! Your turn, Katja!"
***************************************************
"So, this was my first time watching snowboarding and freeski competitions, and I have to say that I am really impressed with all of the athletes that do this. It really is quite fascinating.

Now, as for the results. Well, you could certainly tell that our athletes were young. I think we were very near the bottom in almost every event we entered on the snowboarding side, and I saw a lot of falls and misses and nervousness. Not that we should be surprised by that, of course, but it is something we will need to get better at.

Freestyle skiing was pretty much the same, with one exception. Mikael Robertsson was 24th in the slopestyle. He has not been on our radar, and I do not know if he can repeat this kind of performance....his coach said he put down the run of his life, so we will have to see what that means long term. Still, we might want to consider keeping an eye out for him.

I cannot say it was a fantastic trip, but it was still interesting. Finish us off, Jeff."

"So, Alpine World Championships. First off, a blast. So much fun to be there. But the results....honestly not great. We had a few top 45 finishes, but nothing much closer than 33rd. That was Julia Leifsdottir...was glad to see it, since she has had such a rough season. Viktor Armannson did not do all that well in the downhill or Super G, and Karen Viljalmsdottir had a couple of pretty tough slaloms.

We can definitely do better than this."

"But we cannot do better than these pastries, no?" Katja smiled

She was right there, and I flashed a smile back. More work to do as always, but we could eat, drink, and be merry for a bit first.

Year 1, Chapter11b- Sick Day
"Greenland is Ice, but Iceland is Nice"
-D2: The Mighty Ducks


I coughed, and sighed. This was not going to work. I was too sick to do my job today.

I dialed Katja.

"Good morning, Jeff!" I could almost hear Katja smiling through the phone.

"Its a morning, all right." I was less chipper.

"Feeling worse today?" she queried. There was concern in her voice.

"I am. I do not plan to come in today."

"Well, get better soon! Do not worry about the March reports...we can get to those later."

Thank goodness for that. I hung up the phone, and quickly drifted off to sleep. The grind would wait for now.

We will return next week, once I...er, Jeff....feel better.

Hey all, no update again this week. I am feeling better, but I am a teacher and school starts on Tuesday, so things have been quite hectic. Aiming for a new chapter next week!

Reality did not match what I was hoping to do this week, but the dynasty thread will resume soon. May not be next week, but it will definitely be soon!

Hi, everyone! I hope your week has gone well! This is just another update to say no new story post this week. Given how things have gone lately, I suspect it may end up being a few weeks before the story resumes, but I will keep updating weekly all the same!
