Red LogoUPDATES

Pilots of the Hammer, welcome to this week's Hammer Ship Report, the first of 2022!

It's been a fairly busy start to the year and I am happy to be able to report on a couple of competitions below as well as remind people to check Discord for other results (such as the Hammer Puzzle and the Cross Word Challenge) as some of them are posted there.

Our membership numbers are a little down since the turn of the year due to some pilots transferring to the Reserves and/or being AWOL'ed. In all cases I do hope they find their way back to us when time permits. This has been somewhat offset by new and returning members joining the Hammer so as always please do remember to welcome new faces and be on the lookout for anyone else who may be interested in joining the finest ship in the Empire.

On a competition front, the Hammer Tour of Duty is into its second half. Results from December are pending - as it's been a busier work week for your COM than was anticipated I'll endeavor to get these out over the weekend or Monday at the very latest. The Christmas Special for the Trivia for the Hammered is now complete and results are below, we've also got Season Four to look forward to and we'll be running it in a slightly different manner as an experiment.

I was also interviewed for the TIE Corps PODCast, so do give it a listen if you have a chance. I'm looking forward to seeing how we do in 2022 - we have multiple competitions to look forward to - Squadron ReMobilization, Imperial Storm IV, Raise the Flag and more!
