We’re all very excited to announce the second annual Fleet Week, hosted by Steeltopia this year. Below is a schedule and event description. We are currently looking for assistance in setting up and running the events below, so don’t be shy if you can spare a few hours between now and then to help get things moving.
Confirmed attending: Caledon, New Babbage, Steelhead, Steeltopia. Publicity will start shortly, and we would be much obliged if you could help pass information along, especially those in other sims who might be interested in participating.
Feedback and ideas are welcome, of course. Cheers!
