  Thunder Squadron Commander report #11 (09/22/2020)
This report was submitted by CMDR-SIMS/GN Phoenix Berkana/Thunder/Wing X/ISDII Challenge



To: HA Dempsey, Commodore ISD-II Challenge

From: GN Phoenix Berkana, Commander Thunder Squadron

Date: 22nd September 2020


Welcome all to this week’s Thunder Squadron report.


It’s been a little quiet around here this week on an activity front, however I have had the opportunity to talk to most of you on Discord and email so there are few if any worries at the moment. Hopefully everyone’s busy end to September goes according to plan and we manage to add a few more points to our RtF tally before the end of the month.


Lieutenants Cartec and Kongo are both working on their own comics now, so I am looking very forward to seeing the outcomes for both of them. Lieutenant Angel is currently representing Thunder in the XvT tournament and hopefully she’ll continue to do well! Finally, Lieutenant Dynamus has been hitting the books over at the IU – so anyone else who wants to make Lt Commander please do remember to take the TIE Corps CORE quiz!


In wider news aboard the Challenge, both our fellow squadrons in Wing X have seen changes in leadership, with Colonel Silwar Naiilo taking over as commander of Tempest Squadron and Commander EvilGrin taking over as commander of Inferno Squadron. Best of luck to both of them!


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/
