Air Canada Virtual Does Not Take Responsibility For Any Violations Recived During This Event


Hi there @Balloonchaser

First off great event but im afraid i cant attend since i have exams.

Second, don’t post events that are happening the next day. If you want a decent amount of people for a small event like this, you should probably announce about a week in advance. You have announced this event only 36 hours before it actually happens. You likely wont get anyone, maybe one-three people if you’re lucky.

Im not complaining but just giving some advice to you for future events.



Is the event the 3rd or the 18th??

This event is on the 3rd

Alright, I will be there if it is still going on (don’t know if that depends on the # of people)

No it doesn’t! Lol

The format is:
Title @ Airport - DD####ZMMMYY
D = Day
Z = Zulu
M = Month (First 3 Letters)
Y = Year

You’re right, I’m sorry. I mistook the year as the date 🤦🏼‍♂️
