Keep It Close to Home, Elves

Unsettling world events have caused many elves in Sector 3 to express concerns for the upcoming tracking season.

Yes, this could affect our efforts. The safety and well-being of our elves, of Santa, the sleigh and the reindeer are of utmost importance.

That is why, at this time of heightened concern, we ask that ALL reporting within Sector 3 stay confined to the immediate area around your home and in the direct supervision of your parents or guardians.

That being said: the most important reports needed from Sector 3, especially in areas to the North are:

1. Roof inspections
2. Chimney inspections
3. Weather reports

We would like but DO NOT require local Christmas reports at this time. If you are out and about in the safe company of your family, by all means, please share what you see locally. But do not venture out to do these reports at this time.

We are monitoring the situation closely and will be providing further direction as events unfold.

Stay safe, elves!

About this Elf: Elf Rolf Janssen Verified Elf Santa's Council Member Sector 3 Elf Supervisor

Elf Rolf is a native of Austria. As a young man he moved to Russia and was a refugee of that country in 1915 when he found his way to Santa’s employ. Skilled in carpentry, Rolf was given duties in Santa’s workshop where he worked for many years. Charged with building the first airplane Santa ever flew in 1927 — thanks to his wood working skills — Elf Rolf was transferred to the Research and Development Department where he served for many years as a sleigh designer and eventually as a flight test pilot.

Rolf took a departure from that work in the mid-1960s when he pursued a degree in computer science, a pioneering field for the North Pole. He returned in 1968 and for years served in data processing before being transferred to the North Pole Tracking and Flight Command Center as an IT specialist. He was instrumental in helping Santa to set up a network of satellites that have become the backbone of North Pole information systems to this day.

Hello, Elf Rolf! Interestingly, each sector has different reports they need. Yes, everything is for Santa, the reindeer, and the elves who help Santa on Christmas Eve. I’m always delighted to work for Santa as a tracker elf! XD

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
