Operation IDA - Repairing our Foundation

Recap of The Op-Ida 2nd Annual Hauliday Haul and 3305.

3305 - year in review:

This past Sunday marked the end of our 2nd Annual Hauliday Haul which served as a final flourish helping to bring 3305 to a glorious close.

We hope you all enjoyed this year’s Hauliday Haul and we thank everyone who participated. This year we once again surpassed our fundraising goal and ultimately raised an astounding $2100 for The Cancer Research Institute! We would especially like to send a huge thank you for all the generous donations from so many. During the Haul we had many new and clever events that were all well-attended and great fun for those that took part. As for the main goal of the event, we repaired a whopping three whole stations in one day and six total stations during the entirety of the Haul. We also made new friends and further educated members of the community who might not know what Op-Ida and all its friends and allies are about, what it is we do, and how we do it in a friendly, welcoming, and entertaining manner.

3305 overall was an exciting year for Operation Ida and we accomplished so much together.

From the get go, 3305 started off like a rocket and never slowed down. We defended the Pleiades after renewed attacks, then finally finished repairs on all of the Thargoid attacked stations in the Pleiades allowing us to enter the Bubble with a new sense of purpose and immediately began repairing stations at a record pace!

Along the way we’ve been joined by new friends and new allies, we hosted our first One and Done 24-hour full station repair event, once again returned to the Pleiades to re-repair stations after yet another series of attacks before then returning back to the Bubble to resume our firefighting duties. Simultaneously, we worked with our Pleiades neighbors to secure control of the remaining two refineries to ensure the safety of our home cluster and all who call it home against future Thargoid incursions.

Behind the scenes we added new staff, each whom have worked to further all things Op-Ida with new ideas, energy, and integrity to the operation. We tweaked and added new processes and data gathering methods to further help record and document our efforts, as well as improved traditional hauling practices that we’ve always done, making these tasks more efficient.

Through it all, our traveling band of merry volunteer station repair magicians have done all of the above with dedication, humor, and great empathy. Our job can often be a thankless one and it says a lot that each of you not only happily haul as hard as you do, but also always strive to be supportive and helpful not just to our own members and friends, but the entire community at large!

Operation Ida has now reached Two years as a group, and as we enter year three, we want to thank everyone who has ever been involved in our peculiar brand of game-play and wish all of you the best for 3306 and the coming years!

With great pride,

Greetings commanders!
Thanks a lot for repair of Witch Head Nebula stations! I just want to ask a little thing - could you please mention in your spreadsheet, that the Sherrill Orbital was repaired by independent commanders too, not only by Operation Ida? For example I have delievered for two weeks ca 50000t (or more - I don't know no longer), even though from local sources. :) And I sure, that other guys made contributions too. Thanks in advanse and fly safely! :)

You're definitely not independent any more if you hauled 50k tons. The IDA virus got you, if not in squadron tag, but at least in spirit :)

Well, this time it was something more like "lets-try-and-see-what-happens-if..." for me. But OK, from time to time I'm really fancy to haul the stuff to one of the imperial stations - so to say, like a "gratitude" for prompt achieving of the King-rank by selling of ceramic composites. ;-)
