      You say 'ongoing Saturday...' and 'WHEN' says 'every Sunday at 1500 UTC'. Which is it?

      Good catch. That was a typo that has been corrected on the website. We are doing the civilian flights on Sat due to the popularity of MSFS, and have moved the DCS training to Sunday. So to answer your question, the A-10C training will be ongoing workshops on Sunday. If you can make it, we would love to have you!

      Zoolander, I should have joined DigitalThemePark years ago! So happy to see that you're still going strong. I have downloaded TeamSpeak and connected to your TS server. I can't figure out the next step. I log on via TeamSpeak and go to the "welcome new members" channel but I don't see how to participate further. Is there anything else other than "log on when we have an event?" Just wondering if I'm missing an application or other docs somewhere. Also, any chance you can record any of these teaching events if we can't make the live time?

      Would like to join this tomorrow. But went to the digitalthemepark.com site and don't see how to participate. Never done this before. Can anyone help? Surprised there's not link or instructions on how to actually participate.
