Reports to North Pole Flight Command are a little slow to come in. This is expected.
Hello everyone, Elf Flip here, with an update on our goal this year. In the past, I have updated you on the number of tracker elves recruited each year. With the change of focus to tracker elf reports, my job changes slightly.
Our goal, as announced at the annual tracker elf press conference at the North Pole in July, is to get 1 billion tracker reports. We have a little more than 3,000 reports as of this morning.
I know it sounds like a tiny little dent towards our goal. But I would remind you that last year at this time we had 0 reports by this point in the season.
Some here at Flight Command feel that part of the reason for the low number is because tracker elves for the most part haven’t even checked in yet.
And it is easy to see why that is true. In many parts of the world it is still summertime and many are on vacations. Some elves haven’t even thought of Christmas yet. As elves wake up to the fact that Santa’s flight is soon to be only 100 or so days away, they will come back and check in.
So nobody is really panicked about the report totals. It’s going to happen.
I have spoken to each elf supervisor. They are all very pleased so far with the quality of reports coming in. In fact, there are no issues at this time to tell you about.
Yes, we have a long way to go to that goal. And we recognize that the vast majority of reports will be coming in November and December.
I think it is safe to say that as of right now, we are right on target.
