Welcome to this weeks Thunder Squadron report, been a mixed week with virtually all of you checking in with me at some point or another, pilots taking part in the trivia, doing some flying and picking up awards for art and whatnot. However, we’re lagging in RtF after a week and we need to do some catching up! I hope I’ll be seeing everyone on the flight line during the course of the month – so please let me know how I can assist!


A full list of active competitions is available on http://tc.emperorshammer.org/competitions.php?id=current


Biggest item on the competition list is of course Raise the Flag (RtF) which will run for the rest of the month. The scoring and rules can be found online here: http://rtf.tsaunders.net/
