Thunder Squadron PatchSQUADRON NEWSThunder Squadron Patch

Greetings Thunder Squadron and welcome to this weeks report.

Another week has hurtled past and unbelievably we're mere days away from November and the final stretch of 2020. Shocker I know!

It's been another good week here in Thunder with some fantastic participation levels in both the Squadron and Ship Trivia - 8/12 is nothing to be sneezed at by any stretch so well done there! We've also seen a number of pilots continue to add to their haul of legions which is also fantastic to see!

Thunder Squadron PatchCOMPETITIONS AND EVENTSThunder Squadron Patch

Fantasticlly competitive set of trivia competitions last week, with Thunder seeing 8/12 members taking part in the squadron trivia (fantastic work all) and the Trivia for the Challenged seeing 18 participants which is very rewarding!

The Trivia for the Challenged featured questions about the Firespray-31 class of vessel, which featured in Star Wars as Bobba Fett's Slave-I. This was a well competed round and we had a draw when it came to a close with both CM EvilGrin and LCM TI-40026 scoring 6 points.

The Thunder Trivia this past week saw questions on the T-16 Skyhopper and despite some stiff competitions from a number of pilots the win was claimed by MAJ Tygra Shadowclaw. Good work!

A full list of active competitions is available at the TIE Corps Competition Center.
