Trouble finding witnesses

For the Marksmanship Awards it is required to have witnesses. The problem I am faced with is although I play a lot of games that are on the lists for marksmanship awards, I seldom if ever, seem to be able to play with TRMN members. How can I get witnesses for these awards if I can't find members to play with me?

In order to even earn the points for the awards and marksman, you need to play with TRMN members, be it online or in person.

They can act as your witness, and you can act as theirs.

Now, if you're playing tabletop with some friends, see if one or two of them would be willing to join. It's free, and they can be involved or as scarce as they want, but at least you'll have some witnesses!

Try to find a common interest/game with other TRMN members. Key is to speak up and ask around. :)

Let me know when you’re on, I’m in both WOWS and WOT, not sure on your server, but I’ll witness for you if I can

So,

Finding other players that are interested in joining the RMN is not always possible. I have asked my regular Infinity/Warhammer/Dropfleet players if they are interested, and they are not. Considering the amount of time I spend on those hobbies, and wanting to become more involved in this one, is there no other response than "they must be TRMN members"?

I'm afraid not, although if I may I'd like to elaborate on that. The purpose of the marksmanship program is to reward people for using gaming as a social activity within TRMN. If you are the only member of TRMN involved, then - unless there's some other link - it's not really anything to do with TRMN. This is analagous to other activities that could be rewarded by TRMN... arranging a coffee morning with your ship or division would be something that could well be appropriate for the org to reward, but going for coffee with your friends wouldn't be.
