Andy Steps Down
It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that @andyt90 will be stepping down from his roles as CM and Squad Lead trainer. He will remain in post for a few days after this announcement to tie up any loose ends. Andy has served as a staff member since Moderators were first introduced. He has been with the community through thick and thin, and has had enormous resolve to endure all his positions have thrown at him. We would all like to thank him a hundred times over for the time and effort he has put into making this community a better place for all, and look forward to continuing to hear his shouty squad leading for some time.

2020 Meet-Up Officially Cancelled
" So pretty much the inevitable time has come to say the 2020 meetup is going to have to be cancelled. As it stands anyone coming from outside of the UK would need to go through a 14 day isolation and IMO if it was UK only people I believe we would struggle to get the 15 required to book the air-soft site (if it even reopens). I will be contacting John to inform him as he hasn't indicated our booking was cancelled at all yet due to circumstances. We will probably wait until this whole Corona issue dissipates to make any decisions/announcements about a 2021 meetup, but hopefully with this years being cancelled more can make it next year for an even bigger and better one! Hope everyone is well and staying safe, you bunch of nerds..." - @Winters (Benji) 10/05/2020
