Well the opening ceremony went without a hitch, roughly 30 people joined the channel to hear my speech and watch the fireworks provided by YangTze Quan. A couple of notable celebrities turned up including Ombey and Chribba.
Sadly ISD weren't able to make the event so it is unlikely that I will get any press coverage. I will try to make a transcript of the event available as soon as possible and upload some screenshots.
Thanks to everyone who came along!
