Island activations ?

The first week-end of June was traditionally the rendez-vous for all islands hunters, taking part in the Island Festival.
Unfortunately the Island Festival website is down and we don’t know if something is going to happen or not this year.

Maybe we could keep this well known date and do something anyway, even unofficialy , without ranking etc ?

To IRDX members: feel free to be active from IOTA, IOTA N/V, IWI … HQ is here to support , as usual !

Le premier week-end de juin était le rendez-vous traditionnel des chasseurs d’îles, qui participaient à l’Island Festival.
Malheureusement, nous n’avons pas eu d’infos des organisateurs depuis longtemps et le site du Festival est fermé. On ne sait pas si quelque chose est prévu ou non cette année.

Ceci dit, pourquoi ne pas conserver cette date, bien connue et continuer à activer des îles, même “non officiellement”, sans classement etc , juste pour le plaisir ?

Avis aux membres IR: n’hésitez pas à activer des IOTA, IOTA N/V, IWI, le HQ est là pour aider si nécessaire.
