@HiFlyer, @Luke_Sta, @KPIT and @BigBert10 you liked this post and the post in the retirement thread.

Would you like a gate?

No, I am only Grade 2. Would love to join otherwise.

Sorry, won’t be able to join. It would be around 4 to 5 am in my timezone by the time we land. I want my sleep. I’m too stressed out on my current homework over the weekdays and lost A LOT of sleep.

At least I need some good beauty sleep on the weekends…

Does that one conflict @BigBert10?

Would you like a gate now time has been changed!

Ok thanks for letting me know. Hope you can come!

@BigBert10 the event you mentioned is on the 22nd. This event is on the 23rd at 0000Z

The next day, I have school.

2210Z is when my school ends

Is anyone else interested in this event!

So why cant you attend an event at 0000Z?

Because it looks like this event is on Sunday at 5pm PDT (my time zone)

If the expected flight time is 13hrs-14hrs, then I would have to wake up early the next morning to land the plane.

Oh also, on Sundays, we normally eat out during dinner. Best days I can do events are on Saturdays and sometimes Fridays, rarely Sundays.

Ok sorry to hear that. Hope you can come to another of my events!
