So, seeing that the "other" NYC meet is happening on some inconvenient dates for me (finals that week), I am considering going to NYC on the 12th-15th which is the weekend following the other meet. So, if anyone is interested....feel free to post away!

Count me in too. I live in NYC and I get back from Egypt on the 12th. Am so annoyed to miss the other meet the week before.

I wonder what would happen if I chose to go the weekend before??

Well, I, for one, would have shook your hand and introduced myself. I hope your finals go well, and enjoy NYC.

I hear ya! Anetters are like that. This is a brotherhood and I think Ed would have been well received. No worries.

So Ed what you got planned for the big Apple?

Sorry to hear. Well let me know if you can get here before December. If not come out to LAS! You will find me on top of the parking garage.

I will be going to NYC during the later part of the Summer for the Weekend. I would have loved to have gone this time but I had medical tests that stopped me from going, even though I got time off work for it. Damn, I am so upset, sad, depressed.  Sad

If you are coming to NYC and interested in meeting up with some of the local spotters and getting great advice, I highly recommend checking out the forums at http://nycaviation.com/.

Looking forward to meeting you.

Phil, are you one of the mods on NYC Aviation? Is there a link to good spotting sites? I think RJ Pieces sent out some link a while ago about NYC spotting, just wondering if it's somehow linked to your site.

I hope to make it to NYC this summer sometime. I had a great time last year there. so much to do, yet not enough time to do it in.

Hey Jordan,
I'm thinking about going around Thanksgiving (ours).
We should pack some YYZ kids into a plane and go.

Your thanksgiving is on a different day?

I did not know that. Come to think of it, I did not know there was a thanksgiving in Canada!

I think it's the second weekend in October here in Canada. Monday October 10 is the holiday if I'm not mistaken.

What do you know - you learn something every day on Anet!

Thanks Jordan & George.

Is your thanksgiving meant to celebrate the same thing as the American one?

I've always thought the Americans to be very clever with their holidays, by having then on Mondays or Fridays or Thursdays. Is that how it works in Canada too?

Jase,
You ask interesting questions.

Our holidays often fall on Mondays or Fridays in the summer time to allow for long weekend also. I'm not sure if our Thanksgiving is for the same reason as my neighbours to the south.

Sorry for hijacking this thread!

Jase,
You ask interesting questions.

I'm curious about the way things work in different places.

For example, a fair few of our holidays fall on fixed dates (1 Jan, 26 Jan, 1 May, 15 Aug, 2 Oct and 25 Dec). But only one that I can think of falls on a fixed day (Good Friday).

We don't have any holidays that are on the first Monday of a month, or the last Friday, or anything like that.

I wish we did though!


And what do you mean by "hijacking" a thread? People do that? How rude.
