Now that @Delta319 has gone through the trouble of inviting me, I suppose I can likely make it but I am not entirely sure of our schedule that far out…

The time format in your post is wrong.

Your event takes place on the 25th July at 03:00 ZULU I believe…

So it should be:

250300ZJUL18 (The 18 stands for 2018 - the year)

At the moment it says your event is at somepoint in July 2025 😂😂😂


Ok thanks for that! This was my first event so I realy wouldn’t have known.
@BennyBoy do you want to come?
