From the Director of Events
Salutations everyone! Welcome to the Events Department section of The Scope, where we keep you up to date with changes within the Events Department, as well as get you excited for some of our upcoming Major Events for the remainder of the year!

So far this year we have had a pretty interesting one, and looking into the future we wish to strengthen the Events Department relationships with the VATPAC and VATSIM community, this is one of my many goals with the Events Department for the next 6-12 months.

If you are looking for a place to find all of our upcoming events, why not take a look at our Major Events List 2020 on the Events Announcements. Any changes to planned major events will be posted here so this is a great place to remain up to date!

Remember that the Events Team is always open to feedback about all of the events that we conduct. Please contact us via https://feedback.vatpac.org/ or email the Director of Events via [email protected].

Are you interested in creating events for the VATPAC Community? Take a look at our Expression of Interest thread here.

Joshua Micallef,
Director of Events, VATSIM Australia Pacific
