Mega MAN Meet - Official Thread (part 1)

Posted (10 years 3 months 3 weeks 5 days 14 hours ago) and read 8948 times:

This is the official thread for the Mega MAN Meet. Accordingly, please respond to this thread only with things concerning it, including confirming your attendance, confirming your participation in tours, any queries you may have, and so forth.

The Mega MAN Meet will be held over the weekend of 10th and 11th July. It is being held during this month because it should be nice and warm and thus more conducive to an outdoor get-together. It is being held on these dates so that people can still attend Fairford and Farnborough, if they wish to.

Please note that the planning is currently ongoing – I am awaiting replies from people and businesses – so I cannot yet confirm what will and what will not be happening. Nevertheless, the following is a plan which should come to fruition (I will obviously inform you of any changes).

1) Meet at 0930 (if not possible, please state your ETA in this thread) at the car park spectators' area (where there’s a good view of the movements) and proceed to the excellent visitors’ area (visit http://www.manchesterairport.co.uk/web.nsf/Content/ViewingPark) near the runways (by public bus). Spend the day there watching the movements, while sunning ourselves;

2) Hopefully have a tour sometime between noon and 1500 of the aircraft (hopefully including the Avro, the MON DC-10, and hopefully both the Trident and the Concorde) present in the visitors’ area. There will be an entrance fee to all of these, the cost of which I will let you know ASAP (as soon as I know; please note that these will have to be specially opened for us). If you do or do not wish to go inside the aircraft, please let me know.

2) Go to the seemingly excellently-located pub (The Airport Hotel; visit www.airporthotel.freeserve.co.uk) about 1700 (5pm). I am hoping to arrange an outdoor BBQ, so that we can continue watching the movements and take advantage of the evening sun and warmth. If you require vegetarian food, please let me know. If a BBQ is not possible, we shall hopefully have a sit-down meal indoors, before and after which we can watch the movements. Naturally we can drink copious amounts of alcoholic beverages (or as little as you want (good idea, MYT  Wink/being sarcastic ) or none) during the evening. If you do or do not want a meal, please reply to this thread.

3) Proceed to the hotel for the night. I am currently awaiting replies from a few hotels concerning a group discount. At the moment, the SAS Radisson (connected to the airport terminal by a walkway; visit www.sasradisson.com) is probably the best choice, but it’s also expensive. I’ll let you know the prices ASAP. If you do or do not require accommodation, please reply to this thread.

4) Meet up in reception (of whichever hotel) for breakfast the next morning (perhaps 0800; this will be confirmed);

5) At about 0930, hopefully have a tour of tour of Northern Executive Aviation situated in the cargo area, which offers superb close-up views of both the runways and taxiways. There will be a charge for this, of which I will know soon. If you wish to go on this tour or if you don’t, please reply to this thread.

6) Return to the excellent visitors’ area and spend the rest of the day there, until you must bid farewell and go your separate way.

Please do note that the above is subject to both confirmation and change. I am confident that I can confirm tours and the hotel within a week or so – so I will obviously let you know when I know. Naturally you can provisionally add your name and change if necessary later.

Please reply adding your username to the relevant sections. This is really important. Please copy and paste the heading, like '1) I will be coming:' and then add your username. I will update the list every day or two, so we know who is coming and who’s doing what.


1) I will be coming:

Pe@rson

2) I will try my hardest to arrive at the car park spectators’ area by 0930:

Pe@rson

3) I will not be there by 0930. I will hopefully arrive at:

5) I do not want to go on any of the tours:

6) I would like to have a sit-down meal or BBQ, whichever can be arranged:

9) I will not be requiring accommodation:

10) I would like to go on the tour of the Northern Executive Aviation ramp:

Again, please do note that the above itinerary is subject to both confirmation and change. I am confident that I can confirm tours and the hotel within a week or so – so I will obviously let you know when I know. Naturally you can provisionally add your name and change if necessary later.

I am very confident that the weekend will be both excellent and memorable, so why miss out on it? COME ALONG AND ENJOY!

Sounds cool Pe@rson, be good to finally meet some people off here. Gimme a shout if you need a hand sorting anything out. Remember this is MANCHESTER, and our summers are notoriously wet, but I'm sure Pe@rson can put a kind word in and make it hot and sunny for just a few days!  Big grin

How unfair was that decision? If it was not for this website, these get-togethers would not be possible. Consequently, the owners and 'managers' of this website should be grateful that there is such a community spirit and accordingly permit the multi-posting to attract even more people and thereby further this all-important spirit. If it does not, it could be fairly and justly assumed that they're not bothered about it. I will keep them. If you don't like it, tough. In the words of JTW: "Tell him to **** off." Ooops, looks like I just did.  Smile

Well, I guess I got told..riiight..

You can bitch about community all you want, but the fact of the matter is, its not necessary to post it in every damn forum..

http://www.airliners.net/discussions/rules.main?confirm=no

Rule 18:

"Never post the same topic in more than one forum.
Always check past topics to be sure that the topic you are about to start hasn't already been posted. You can do this with a simple forum search using the relevant keywords. If your topic has already been posted and you'd like to add to the discussion, please do so under the existing topic.
PLEASE do not start a new topic UNLESS the prior one has been LOCKED. For example, the subject "What is the Safest Commercial aircraft?" has been discussed many times. A simple search will most likely answer your questions. "

There are 9 forums. I posted it in 3. Thus 'The fact of the matter is, its not necessary to post it in every damn forum.' is evidently flawed. Grow up. If you don't like it, complain like a little girl.

LOL. You'll find that I only posted them in three forums: civil aviation, photography and here. I have no need to post them in any of the other forums. I deliberately chose those three because they're the most frequented and thus the most conducive to gaining interest.
