The meet starts on Friday 7th Oct but kick off properly on Saturday 8th with everyone saying their goodbyes on Monday 10th Oct. Anyone is welcome to join us, new people are always warmly welcomed , as well as you regulars
The same basic plan:
People arrive in MAD
Perhaps try and have a meal and a few drinks somewhere nice in the evening.
Depart at 08:25 on IB802 (A340-300) from MAD down to hot and sunny LPA for the day, to catch some rays and aircraft.
Depart LPA at 19:45 on IB813 arriving back at MAD at 23:20.
Those with energy remaining will possibly head into Madrid to catch the nightlife.
Majority will nurse hangovers.
Spend day at MAD enjoying all the comings and goings before people begin to catch their flights home.
The LPA trip is optional, and some are staying in MAD on the Sunday, free to do whatever they wish but can you really resist a ride on the A340 (possibly -600) to top off the weekend .
The hotel is (still) undecided, though it looks as though an NH will be filled with Anetters again
The flights we will be using are as follows. If the loads are good, it is thought possible that the flight out could be an A340-600:
OCT 09 IB802 DEP MAD 08:25 ARR LPA 10:10 340
OCT 09 IB813 DEP LPA 19:45 ARR MAD 23:20 343

There will be no drinking, and I expect everyone to be in bed by 9pm on pain of severe punishment - you'll have to sit with JGPH1A while he finishes his bottle and sing him lullabyes to get him to sleep!!
Drinking! Tsk, I thought this was a cultural weekend.
It is £81 per night or £162 for the 2 nights, if you book through easyjethotels.co.uk I can get discount, with discount it is £129 for the 2 nights, if anyone wants to book, email me and I will tell you the discount code.

Long time no see
It really depends on the time of year and where we choose to go. It's usually discussed first , then put to the vote.
There's a meeting at MAN in July ( 16 and 17th ) but I won't be there as I'll still be in Kefalonia.

I might just try to make it to MAD that weekend if I can find a cheap airfare across the pond in the next couple months. Probably fly into LHR or DUB first, is it cheap to get to MAD from either of those cities? Y'all take care now

Quoting Skidmarks (Reply 11): Fortunately he won't want to be driven around Madrid by a senile old Brit.
Too bloody right ! Driving round Madrid with "Mad Manx - Road Warrior" in a micro-Citroen, going round roundabouts the wrong way, waving his walking stick out of the window and swearing at the bemused natives ? No ta...
