Welcome everyone to the Tenth Annual Pride Weekend. As is customary, I’m going to start us out with a few words.
Ten years is a pretty big accomplishment. We wouldn’t have ever gotten here if it wasn’t for the tireless effort of some many people. Some of them have been here, helping maintain and build our fleet for years. I’d like to take this time to praise some of the people currently working to make SGN a better place. Feel free to show your appreciation as well. @Voleron

As Chief, he spearhead re-arranging our banks and implementing the standard we still use for upgrading our holdings. He hosted the extremely popular Trek Trivia events that takes him hours to prepare and host. Now, he servers as our PR Officer where he expertly manages our social media, creates wonderful graphics and works hard to promote all of our events and guilds. Dave, thank you so much for all you do. @GXV3

Years ago, he was promoted to Editor-in-Chief of the Stonewall Times after volunteering as a writer for many issues. Single handedly he curated articles from authors, organized them and created the layout. He put our Issue 36 earlier this year. Thank you so much for your perseverance, Cal. @Chipz416

He goes above and beyond in encouraging and supporting all of the leadership. He’s the definition of a Morale Admiral. Thank you Chipz for your enthusiasm. @SaintPlazma

Since becoming a Fleet Captain, he’s been a staple of the community, always showing up and helping out. Especially with the KDF events that he helps run and host. Thank you so much Kierix!
Finally, I’d like to thank @Halish
, my partner in crime for his support and friendship. He has been with Stonewall Fleet from the early days. Before he was promoted to Admiral, he created the Stonewall Fleet logo that we still use today, as well as logos for our other guilds. Halish has served as Admiral of Membership Management in Stonewall Fleet and as an Officer in Stonewall Alliance and Stonewall Vanguard.
This isn’t an exhaustive list. There are lots of people out there that have helped build Stonewall Fleet to what it is today. I’m sure each and every one of you have helped in your own way. To all of you, my sincerest thanks!! And with that, I declare the Tenth Annual Pride Weekend begun!
