Keeping Secrets

Elf Training #1: Secrets Keep You Safe

Greetings, Elves!

For those of you who do not know me, my name is Elf Roger Star. I am the International Director of Santa Trackers for NorthPoleFlightCommand.com.

This is the first of several training lessons you will be receiving over the course of the next couple of months. Our goal is to help you succeed as an elf and to show you how to both work and have fun in your duties.

Like all jobs, there are rules. Rules are there for many reasons. Some rules are about maintaining a certain kind of look or style or standard to an effort. Rules are also there to protect you in some ways or to protect Santa or the North Pole. Rules are necessary.

Today I want to you to learn about keeping secrets.

Secrets are a big part of the Santa effort. Everyone knows, for example, that Santa will fly around the world on Christmas. Most understand even when he will take off. But they don’t know his exact flight path or when he will arrive at any given location.

Some of those things are kept highly secret. Many elves even here in Flight Command don’t know those secrets.

Letting those secrets out would be bad. If a bad person had that information they could do bad things. So we keep some details secret.

There are things you should keep secret, too.

When you became an elf you had to come up with your elf name. Why do you need an elf name? Because your real name should be a secret. It’s ok for people to know you as Elf Jingles (or whatever your chosen elf name is). If they know Elf Jingles did an elf thing, that’s good. But if they also know it’s Elf Jingles who is really Janey Peterson (or whatever your real name is) that would NOT be good.

Your real name needs to remain a secret. When you are in the course of your duties, you should never use your real name. On this website, for example, you go by your elf name. Not your real name. You understand? This website is where you do elf stuff. Elf work. You need to use only your elf name here. When you talk to other elves they should use their elf name and you should always use your elf name.

Other things about you should remain secret too: where you live, how old you are, where you go to school or work, etc. Nobody here needs that information. It should be good enough for them to know that you are an elf.

Some of you like to organize into tracker groups. Those groups might even meet locally. That’s ok. Just use your elf names when you do elf work — even together.

If you have a hard time keeping secrets you need to work on that. We talk a lot of secrets here in the course of tracking Santa here that the rest of the world does not need to know. What you see here, what you say here, stays here. Secret.

That’s lesson #1.

Any questions? Okay, respond below but use your elf name!

I’m basically in the desert, so I’m not worried about hurricanes. It rarely rains, and the only bad weather we get down here are heat waves and haboobs, so they won’t likely do any test flights over my area.Oh yeah guys check out Elf Meg Noggs update at northpoleflightcommand.com

JOEL joel

i am in oman it is also a desert area so the test flight will not come. it is the arabian desert it is 40 decree celcures so hot

Tracker update! Test flight are currently flying over Nevada. They are going over the Ruby Mountains wilderness, and for further observations they are flying over the areas of Kleckner creek, Liberty Lake and Favre lake. According to google research, The ruby mountains are “a protected wilderness area in the ruby mountains of Elko county, Nevada, united states. It covers an area of approximately 90,000 acres, and is administered by the ‘Humboldt-Toiyabe national forest.” I hope I can provide more reports like this in the future!

Operation Merry Christmas underway soon! Check it out at santaupdate.com!

Test flights now in north dakota, They are flying over the outskirts of the Jamestown countryside. Jamestown is an ideal place for test flights, becuase they get rain and snow year round. They have a small population of 15,310 people, yet they are the biggest town in north dakota. The area they are flying over is bare and uncivilized. This area is untouched by humans other than the dirt roads going through the area. According to reasearch, a few cars drive by the area now and then, but nothing else. Knowing that this area has bad weather and it is remote, is a great ideal place for test flights. If you look at the satelite images, civilization is a few miles away from there.

emma

Roger that and i am a elf too and i am tracker elf amelia

JOEL joel

JOEL joel

new app for mobile user for tracking santa check out more at santa update

I will track santa every day because us elf’s have a big job to do and so little time to do it in right guys so keep who you are a secret and don’t tell anyone and we have a lot of work to do

emma

Hannah

Ok, I will look into the data of the location of the test flight, thanks for telling us!

Hannah

So, Edgemont, Arkansas.Edgemont is an small community, with a small population of 807 people. It is unincorporated, so this community can’t be classified as a town. Edgemont is very close to Heber springs. This is a small area, so they are comfortable doing test flights there without getting seen. Sorry if there isn’t as much info today, I have to go.

ELF MERRYSUGER

Hello, fellow elves, I have bad news. I’m undercover in United Kingdom and just found out another elf has revealed their secret! I must take care of the situation, and in doing so must go undercover for quite some time. Of to save X-Mas now from exposer. I checked the Elf Guides and found nothing. May Rudolph be with me and you, Merry Christmas!

Teagan Lomas

i’m ready

Elf Buttercup

Yes. This is very important for safety. If someone knew about this they could harm you. We all need to keep safe. Never tell your address, school or work. Someone could find out and may harm you. Please keep safe.

Safety

Josie Tucker

How do you go to the Elf Guides?
