Hello my fellow a.netters! After much pushing and shoving, I have decided to start a new thread for the YYZ Meet on the 23rd and 24th of July. This seems to be the most convenient time for the majority of those who responded to the previous thread.

I have to say that I can't make it on the 23rd until the evening, as my dad is departing that day to Europe and he needs a ride, plus it's the last day he's here until he goes on vacation for a month. So, I will be around by approximately 7pm. I am looking forward to the best part anyhow, which is the dinner and drinks either by the airport or downtown. Trust me, good times are to be had when this happens.  Smile I will be available on Sunday for those who are still around too.

So ... who's coming, and when, and where are you staying? The more the merrier! I look forward to meeting some new people and helping out however I can.

Ohhh well if you insist on knowing, i shall tell......

I'll be there (with my friend) on 23rd/24th, staying at Days Inn T3....i'll be driving a North Dakota registered Buick which you won't be able to miss!! I did book two double beds which means if someone needs somewhere to sleep then there's a bed available (if the hotel gave us the second bed) plus i have spare room in the back of the car to ferry ppl around. I'm lookin forward to seeing everyone and i might bring my guitar, coz Curtis said he'll sing! lmao

I'll be there on the 23 rd.

Are we meeting at our "regular" meeting area..... Wendy's? I dunno if 23 will be in use on that date?

....maybe Fedex? Meet on the hill?

Anyways, i'll be doing the dinner thing and if all goes well (my headache problem  Sad ) i will tag along for the post dinner adventures.

Unfortunately 23 will not be widely used, as it is shortened until August I believe. They are upgrading it to be CAT III capable. We will figure out meeting place and time as it gets closer, but keep in mind I wont be there for the start.

Sounds like a plan Nuno.

Seeing as I am already taking that week off from work, I may scoot up there for the weekend. Especially now that we have a good showing of out of towners.

I will be coming in the evening of the 23rd on NWA around 6 pm. I'll come meet you guys as soon as I can after I land. I won't be able to stay longer than an hour but I'll be able to say hi at least! If it's possible, could you hold off on dinner until after I get there? My mother-in-law will have dinner ready for me so I won't be able to have dinner with you guys.

Isn't that weekend also the Caribana Festival? Or is that the following week?

After mulling it over a bit, I am in for Saturday the 23rd; will stay the night in T.O. for sure. Who is planning on being in town in time for Friday evening? I am thinking about staying downtown that night, perhaps we can get a group up and have fun down there. It would be a shame for the out-of-towners to see nothing of Toronto but Pearson Int'l.



Nope, the following weekend.

my flight is due to arrive on Friday the 22nd @ 10:52 p.m.

I haven't booked yet but the only other option would be AA (non stop) which would get me there much earlier that day. Depends on what the plans are, I can always go with AA.

In a shocking move the powers at work granted my request for 23-24 off. I have to wait a day or so to see if we will arrive Friday or Saturday. The entire clan will make the trip and depending on how Lizzie is doing she might make an appearance.

I hope to see everyone again and hope the weather is nice, It was a bit chilly last time i saw everyone!!.

Nuno please post more details as they come together.


Again I hope we have a great turn out this year and I hope to see everyone soon.

CORulez05 (FLL, arriving Friday night, leaving Sunday night)
DesertJets (SYR, joining us on the 23rd)
AC777LR (YYC? YYZ?, dates unspecified)
Skysurfer + friend (Kingston, coming to YYZ very very early on the 23rd  Smile, 24th too )

Sounds like a good bunch!
