Just saying, but one week is definitely not enough to prepare teams, pilots, and other things… but hey. I’d suggest a great time would be in the Summer since it gives a better chance to prepare, and allows better attendance.

Anyway, good luck! Hopefully you guys can breathe some life into the previously failed Olympics. :)

Dang. What an event! I may consider signing up for a position/volunteer. I’ll have to wait until the schedule has times however (I’m awfully reserved atm :( )

Anyone want to “Team Djibouti” with me?

Hello! I was just wondering, will there be crosswind/wind landing or fog landing? I didn’t know if I should put this in the suggestion box.

There will not be, as we can not control the weather. It would be difficult to schedule, and conditions would be different for each competitior.

They will happen over a course of many days and at many different times (Australia and New Zealand are Teams so there will be plenty of events fit for your timezone!)

If you want, you should reach out to one of them to join a team OR you can go and make a Team Japan :)
