It might even be my fault Mike - I got stuck with my car with engine problems (mayday mayday mayday), had to fix it all day, came back and fell asleep at 1800 local till the next morning .

I was supposed to be there to do some ATC


My sincere appologies to everyone

Well, I must say this event has been affected by real life reasons which prevented us from doing it as planned


Me personally had some backache during the previous days which affected my ability to organize the event more than that.

So we finally got online at about 1900z and gave ATC services to few flights until about 2100z after which I couldn't continue and left for some rest.


Sorry for how things ended. Promise you a better event very soon!
