Many thanks!  One can only plant so many tulips in retirement before going out of his cotton-pickin' mind! :)

True testament to Cessna aircraft.  The Boeing had to be modified, but the Cessna was just fine as-designed, as-built! :)

What's a "DC Center"?  ;D

In all seriousness, good luck with the event!

And, just in case you were not aware, the exam is only for student controllers.  There is currently no test required for you to fly on the network.

Thanks so much, Matt, great insights.  I look forward to a Descent version (that's where I sometimes run into "oddities"....).  Thanks!

VFR-on-top is an IFR operation... how else would you get through the layer?
This is VATSIM... Can't you just spawn there?   ;) ;) ;)

So the way an ATC will "deny" you service is by simply replying "Stand By".
Or, of course, you could be specifically told, "[Callsign], remain clear of the Class [C/D] airspace."

To answer your other question, yes, from the event briefing, you could be told to remain clear of airspace.  Generally, transitions through an airspace are done workload permitting.  Although I wouldn't expect you to be told to remain clear, it is certainly possible.
