SAW 2020 - Spitfires Around the World 2020. World wide January 1st invitational

Okay so a bunch of us were talking over on the spitfire thread...
https://forum.flitetest.com/index.php?threads/spit-roasted-fb.59444/

How cool would it be to try and pull off a world wide group fly.
That is to say that we pick a day, and invite everyone to fly a FT model that day at a specific time (relative to their time zone.)

So, since this idea came to light on the spitfire thread (and it really is one of the sweeter flying FT planes I own and think everyone should have one) the idea is this;

On January 1st 2020. Fly a FT Spitfire at noon (Local time.)
And (most importantly) come back here and log your flight(s)!

Now, I know. This challenge isn't going to be for everyone.
If you don't own one, you've only got a month and a half to add one to your fleet (or heck, just FLY any FT model and join us.)
And weather will almost certainly be an issue for some (it's usually below freezing locally for me, but our local group has a sort of polar-bear event Jan 1 anyway.)

So this is (obviously) just for fun, and don't feel pressured if you plan to join us, but things fall through (stuff happens.)
I don't expect us to cover every time zone, but it would be cool to see who all plans on joining!

If someone wants to cross post this to the FB group that would be great! (I personally don't do FB anymore.)

Here's looking forward to a great year flying and a great community!

I'm out of work again. You know what that means, right? I'm all in! January 1st at noon, Eastern Standard Time. GMT -5:00 if I remember correctly. We've got to do something to mark the occasion as more than just another flight, though. I'm thinking it's time to tow some streamers! :D

Yea, where are you at on that thing?...
‘Bout where I’m at on the Luscombe?!...

GMT -6 here. Be chilly... but I hope to have mine minwaxed and painted by then.

Alright so before we forget here is a quick reminder for the 1st of January make sure you start getting your Spitfires together! BTW I have an issue with the date but will try to come up with an awesome solution and open a thread about it tomorrow morning.
