Performers: If you have a scripted narration document, it is recommended you submit that to @DeltaMD88Fan or my DM, as we are the ones who normally narrate shows. I should mention having a script sometimes save us a few hesitations and can be more informative, but it is not a necessity. Thanks!

@DeltaMD88Fan this is a very nice thread! One reminder though. Daylight savings is ending on November 1st so we are rolling the clocks back 1 hour so this event will happen 2020-11-21T16:00:00Z if it is at 1600Z. If you’d like your event at 2020-11-21T17:00:00Z then you need to change the time to 1700Z. Just a reminder:)
Thanks!
