The Seekers were requested to perform the CAP tonight due to maintenance being performed on the Vipers.
This was the first time this summer that we were able to get together to fly a CAP and as always a good time was had by all as there was some target practice completed and we found that the majority of us have birthday's coming up this month!
Here is the transcript from tonight's CAP

Eugh Vampire that sucks
well let's enjoy this flight while we can.
Dradis check (still showing clear) no contacts
no contacts confirmed.
Clear dradis is always good!
Mk One Eyeball reports an asteroid field ahead but nothing major
cic.. freya.. confirm asteriod field ahead. Do we need to clear the field?
Wedge to Freya, I'd say it's fine as-is but if we need to clear a path I've got a few archers on hot standby
Take a little target practice, Wedge.
Freya.. cic.. acknowledged and confirmed target practice is a go.
*hits afterburners* Targets painted, requesting weapons free.
Vampire you next
im following wedge
Copy, weapons free. SCratch two!
firing scratch two
I'll hang back to monitor
*Missile impacts, clearing one asteroid.*
I am following vampire
*pulls up and away^
missles hit two asteroids
Target acquired.. weapons free.. Scratch two!
Raven's path is about to block the sun... hitting searchlights,
my lights on also
I'd be down, I'll follow cleanup.
i am making another run
I've got ten archers remaining.
i have ten also
I am only down one missle.. plenty on hand
just two raedy to fire
Got one hot in the slot.
Not to distract from everyone's joy of destruction, just wanted to mention before I forget that still praise coming in for that Op plan you submitted, Wedge.
Serously?? Jeez I do one thing and this :P
Got the OP plans in front of me actually
Oh, and did everyone see where Actual has revived Squadron of the month?
I did see that/
I did not, i knew that it was being talked about
Wedge, if one of us sent you the body for submission, you think you can format it the same way you did the Op?
absolutely sir. I'd have it by end of Monday
Well, there's definitely no rush. Actual hasn't even laid down a date for which the submission is due.
ah well just get it too me and it'll be done
Fox Two, target destroyed.
i am firing two asteroids gone
Mik Mo where are the rules posted for it?
Freya, correct me if I'm wrong, but has our squadron came up with all the Ops in 2016?
i saw the bit about the challenge
I believe so yes
That should definitely look good for us.
I remember being there but i dont remember when it was LOL
December I think
i can look it up
since i joined all cap have been seekers
No hurry....when we start to gather the info, it will make for a good point on the submission.
All in recient memory are seekrs
