Please sir... May I bring a DRAEK?

AIRPORTS: A place where people hurry up and wait.

Hellcats Reloaded are running a HipsterVet roam on the 2nd day of April in the year 2016.

The theme is "FC, can I bring a Drake?"
Who: Anyone who can fly a DRAEK
Start and Route: Vitrauze XI-2 (Federal Navy Academy) and lowsec, respectively.
When: Saturday, April 2 @ 8 PM EST (Sunday the 3rd at 01:00 EVE). Form-up will begin at 7:30 PM EST/4:30 PM PST.
Organizer: Dian Lung
FCs: Dian Lung

Flying things that aren't considered viable is on of my favourite past times, as anyone who has brawled my Probe and exploded can vouch for, so I will try and make this, if of course I'm in port and have decent wifi to piggyback.

I had a rather embarrasing and expensive Astero loss a few nights ago when I tried and failed to Pirate a Gila running some Gurista site. Slow internet makes strategic commands and retreats rather difficult.

Council of Stellar Management 11

On the fifth day the Governor of the town called all the tribal chieftains to an audience in the market square, to hear their grievances. He didn't always do anything about them, but at least they got *heard*, and he nodded a lot, and everyone felt better about it at least until they got home. This is politics.

Go vote for Nashh, seriously do it.

I met Nashh many years ago, our friendship started with a 1v1 and grew from there, I've stayed at his house and met his lovely family, he's extremely organised, I mean, come on, EVE_NT is frickin huge and the dude made it happen, imagine what he could do for the game.

Above all, he's a righteous dude.
He got my vote. (It was my only vote, who are all those other people?)
