A.net Caracas Meeting

Hey guys,

Seems like the previous thread has been deleted, thus this new one.

Ok, now that I've four A.netters confirmed and three standing-by, I'll put the latest on where and when is it finally going to be.

The best place I have in mind is in a Lounge called TAO inside one of the best Malls of the city: Centro Comercial Tolon. It has a cool meeting area with nice sofas and tables where we can chill, have some drinks, and enjoy a typical Caracas Saturday night. The place is full of nice waitresses and flat TVs, some Budda Bar styled music and a low light scenery. Pretty cool I must say.

Now, about the meeting... I've already contacted two people who work for Conviasa (one is a pilot and the other one...) and I'm supposed to call them again tomorrow to settle everything up. I really hope I can bring them, so we can add some spice to the meeting.

Now, as soon as I get their confirmation, I'll tell you all what's the final time going to be. So far, I think that around 6PM on Saturday 7th will be good. It's a good time for everyone. I know some of you might prefer different timing, and if the guys from Conviasa can't make it, we'll adapt it as you preffer.

Until now, the confirmed A.netters for the meeting are:

Chiguire
Avianca
Luisde8cd
TGV
797

Standing by:

BA747
erikgonha

So, everything seems to be going ok. Tomorrow I'll call and see what happens.

Hope to see you all here!

Saludos

Enrique

Just a heads-up guys, the original thread was not deleted but moved to non-av: Caracas A.net Meeting (by 797 Sep 20 2006 in Non Aviation)

Suerte con la reunión!

This is a problem of A.net, as no clue is given of where the post has gone (in pprune they help us a little!).
And as the search function works only forum by forum this is not easy!

Anyway I am happy to see the meeting preparation is going well, thanks to Enrique, and in preparation for it you will find the report of my last trip to Paris at:

CCS-CDG-CCS With AF In Y (by TGV Sep 29 2006 in Trip Reports)

Avoid 777 with 3-4-3 config in Y ! They are real sardine cans. (AF/KL for example)

Enjoy yourselves guys, if any of you ever come to AMS we'll meet up here. By now I've met some a.netters (on the job, passengers) and it has been a fun experience always.

I'm heavily in favor of the a.net identifying pins too but they don't seem to come through  Wink Shop is down even.



I wish that all skies were orange and blue!!

797 had poposed 6 PM in the first post, which is fine to me (I may have to leave around 8:30, but in 2 hours we should have the time to rebuild the whole air world  Smile ).

I don't think so. If we come to speak about the service problems with venezuelan airlines this would take us at least the whole night  duck

Yes, ceratinly ! You should not be under 3 and not over 99 !
Everybody is welcome ! The more the better !

Hey guys!

I just came back from a day-off down in La Guaira, or Bosnia after the war I'd rather say, that's why I haven't answered.

So, it seems that the list is growing! Great to hear!

Today I'll call the guy I want to bring (Conviasa), and if he agrees to come, I'll put the final time of the meeting.

So far, 6PM sounds great. I'll go up there and make reservations as soon as I can.

Until now, we have the following a.netters  Smile

Avianca
797
Luise8cd
TGV
Chiguire
Tope98

On stand by:

EDGAREN
Cessna057
BA747

So, if everyone can make it we'll be up to 9 or 10! SOUNDS COOL!

Dude I'm probably your age (as I can see from the profile!) and you don't have to worry about drinking down here!

I think it's too late to mention it BUT.... remember about the pro-Rosales march which will take place on Saturday. Las Mercedes is a meeting point. I wouldn't want our friends from VLN to lose their time coming to CCS to find closed roads & avenues. Maybe it'd wiser to move the meeting time up to 7PM to avoid any problems?

Saludos desde Caracas,
Luis

Uh! I didn't know about that!

Well, it all depends on our friends from VLN. I know TGV has to go back around 8.30  Sad. EDGAREN told me he'd stay at his aunt's so he won't be a problem. We could move it to 7PM if he's OK with that...

Ok, keep info posted!
