First and foremost, apologies for the tardiness of this, my first report. The layout is also a bit of a Work in Progress - I need to get together with the COM and find out how to set things up as you are more used to seeing.

August proved a busy month for Tempest Squadron. The beginning of a new season of TIE Corps in Battle, personnel changes and the usual monthly activity meant for a significant amount of news.

First of all, personnel changes. The most obvious change is that, unfortunately, circumstances meant that LC Honsou stepped down suddenly as Commander of Tempest Squadron. Due to the urgency of the situation, the usual process of finding a CMDR and handing over was not an option, so I was tapped on the shoulder by the COM and TCCOM to step into the void and take the reins of Tempest.

LC Honsou served with distinction as the Commander, leading the Squadron to a number of victories in Fleet wide competitions, and I am pleased to have him remain with us in a Flight Member position, taking the 2-4 position in a craft he worked very hard to get us. I would like to thank Honsou for his work as Commander and I am very aware I have some rather large flight boots to fill.

With my accession to the role of Commander, (now) MAJ Morgoth has reprised the role of Squadron Executive Officer and moves to the 2-1 position. I would also like to welcome LCM Newt as the Flight Leader of Flight 3's Paladins of Fulmination and I know the LCM will do a wonderful job.

Further to the news on personnel changes, MAJ Kalve Ryder elected to transfer full time to the SSD Avenger to focus on projects within the Internet Office. On behalf of Tempest, I would like to wish Kalve the best, and we hope to see him on Active duty again in future.

TIE Corps in Battle is upon us again, and Raise the Flag is around the corner. The second batch of TCiB assignments have been released, and I encourage all to fly them if possible - even if you post a low score, participation points are vital in the competition between squadrons and ships! The rules for Raise the Flag will be released in due time, and I encourage people to participate as they can. We may not reach the lofty heights of last year, but never let it be said that Tempest is found shirking their duty when there is hard work to be done!

Speaking of competitions, Tempest Raid Nights II: Force Lightning Boogaloo is in full swing. On Wednesday and Friday nights, populate the Tempest Voice Channel on the TC Discord server and socialise with your squadmates. Every 10 nights you attend earns an ORA, with Iron Stars up for grabs for those who attend most often.

Closing Thoughts

Well done to all on their achievements over the course of the month of August. Let's build some momentum up for Raise the Flag in October. I am a firm believer in having an open door policy - if there's any issues or concerns you feel you need to raise, please DM me on Discord at Coldsnacks#8057, or email me at ehcolodelste@gmail.com

You are also free to go through the SQXO or FL, if you are uncomfortable raising the issue with me directly.

I have the honour to be,
