Where Will The Meet After AMS's Be Held?

Wed Sep 01, 2004 7:29 am

Any ideas? Is GLA the favourite? What about DUB - it's an extremely fine city with great spotting locations and it's easily - and normally cheaply - accessible from a huge range of UK airports, meaning no matter where you come from, from Aberdeen to Plymouth, you can reach DUB without much effort. Also, the city has plenty of Guinness, superb clubs and pubs, and, more importantly, fine Irish lasses. I vote for... well, you've guessed it.

I doubt I will be going to a meet for a while, after AMS. The AMS meet has cost me enough as it is!

Anything which comes out of this thread will not necessarily be definite anyway - it's just a fun thread where people can state where they'd prefer it to be held. It's not binding.

Dublin sounds perfect, plenty of reasonable flights, decent spotting and the best nightlife in Europe.

The resident Elbonian (UTA) could help arrange things.

I personally really like the sound of a DUB one - mainly because it's very easy to reach the city, it has superb nightlife and has excellent spotting potential.

Yeah Lee, but PMI or somewhere like that would be best in the summer, although it would be warmer than the UK or Ireland during the winter. Also, it summer the airport would be far busier.

Good to see overwhelming support for a DUB get-together. I personally hope it is the city for the next meet.

Well, that might be best decided at a later stage, but you could coincide it to be near either Christmas (so it could be an Xmas bash too) or New Years (so it could also celebrate the NY). The only problem with those, I guess, is that most people won't have much cash because of spending a lot for Christmas. Still, mid-December or January... hmm... it'll be dead cold! :S I was at DUB spotting in Feb - and I froze my b******* off! : Perhaps April time would be best... I'm not too sure.

Other problems with a Christmas/New-Year bash include expensive flights and people wanting to spend time with family.

April strikes me as a little late, it is never really that cold in Dublin during the winter.

Well it damn well was in February this year - and snowing, too!

The good thing about DUB is that it has that pub which is indoors and with a nice bar (  Wink/being sarcastic ) - perfect on a cold winter's day! Not so good for photographers, however.

Well, yes, I agree about the expense associated with Xmas, so perhaps February?

Snowing in Baile Atha Cliath, you really had no luck. Been living in Ireland for nine years now and seen snow three times.

I was rather thinking of skipping the (expensive and small) airport pub and heading to the city.  Big grin

Now to sort out a decent eatery and some other entertainment. A tour of the Guinness brewery at St. James’s Gate anyone?

Sometime around New Years wouldn't be so bad. I'd probably be able to come, and since I'm in North Dakota, where temperatures of -20 F are the norm, cold wouldnt bother me too much.

Failing that, I hope that there's one in the summer I could go to.

As for places, I'd be happy with anything, but Paris would get my preference.

Ah Dublin, one of my favourite cities! Seems like a top choice for a future Meet, though I agree we should enjoy AMS first before starting plans for another gathering.

DUB is easily accessable from most parts of Europe (not just the UK which seems to have been focussed on here so far), though let's also remember that even with FR, the fares won't be peanuts if we fly over a weekend.

Whilst I wholeheartedly agree with a vote for DUB, I also think that GVA in winter and DEFINATELY PMI in summer would be fantastic as these would also be easily accessable for most people to fly to.

We are not really planning as merely discussing. It has to be discussed at some point, and now is as good a time as any to get to ball rolling, so to speak.

Yep, FR normally charges more for flights on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Monday mornings, but with foresight it can still be good.

Ok, Ladies and Gentlemen,

The cheapest (and often best) accomodation in DUB are the various small B&Bs (Bed & Breakfast). Even then a night for two people will cost around 70 Euro. Hotels (esp. those close to the city centre, along the Liffey or around O´Connell Street) are much more expensive, around 100 Euro a night for two people. In County Dublin you´ll have to pay a "National Capital" surcharge.
Most B&Bs and smaller hotels will be closed around christmas and new year.
I´m going to DUB in about two weeks time and I can check out.
