In light of recent events, we will be changing how event positions will be handled. Unlike how we been doing it by accepting your requests if its open. Now we will only be assigning positions no more than a week out. When it comes to who we put on what position do keep in mind our home controllers will be the first to be put on a position. For both of our events later this month we will not be unassigning any controller that has already been assigned to a position.

Hey, all you cool cats and kittens,

June is here and with it, we have an amazing, brand new, POF file! You can find it in the document center. ZHU POF 2006.1.1. Thank you Reuben for your hard work on this!  All the squawk codes have been updated to align with the VATUSA NBCAP. No more DUPE CODES!

Also, Be sure to get your 2 hours this month. James and I have been lenient these past few months, but we will have our first roster purge on July 1. So if you would like to stay on the roster, please get your 2 hours in.  Observers, you are required to request at least 1 (1 hour) training session to remain active.

Stay frosty,
