Ideas For OZ A.netters Meeting

Mon Oct 31, 2005 11:46 pm

First of all, i'm not about to really consider start planning a get together, however if all of us Oz (or more specifically MEL) crew put ideas together, i'm sure we could orginise something.

Hell, they're doing over Zurich and other euro places, why not use down here?!

Anyone with ideas, or the able to facilitate such an idea PLEASE POST

I'm sure a day out at SYD OR MEL would be good. I'll consider myself there when things get going.

It's a thought, Bakestar.  Smile Whereabouts are you? I'm in Mentone, I think Monteycarlos is in Sandringham.

Balwyn (East of the city), however I frequent the Mentone/Moorabbin area about once a week to go flying

Sounds like the Tudor Inn at Cheltenham for a start, then, Bakestar. Though the Mentone Hotel or the Beauey are the better pubs. I'll PM you.

Once we've got the Victorian branch up and running we might invite the other States to join!

One question, all you guys - what are we all doing awake at THIS hour? My excuse is that I'm semi-retired.  Smile

Work night fill at safeway, so my working hours are usually right now, but got the night off. It's my last week in fact before I start my new job at Customs.

Bit far away from my location at 265 Exhibition Street. Of course I'm not in MEL all of the time, but if you're planning something in the future, I'm keen.

I dare say that there will be one or two of us out at SYD on the 14th when the A380 comes in from KUL. I haven't seen any timings yet, but I will be there. So why not have a mini-meet then.

Then once we can that one under the belt we can go and visit the regional airports. (only joking MEL).  stirthepot

Because you want to go and buy yourself a new one, and then make your parents pay for it out of guilt?

AAAAAAAAAAAAA I have just realised that I am away the Blue Mountains on the Sat and Sun. Thankgod for day light saving. I should be home in time to see her. Hopefully will see her take off on Monday though.

This may seem like a pretty stupid question, but what are we supposed to do at the meetings. Please make sure the meeting isn't in a pub (i'm under 18). Can you guys (and girls) decide soon if this will happen or not. I need to book flights before Monday.

Watch the A380 arrive at least? And those of you not needing to go to work can watch it leave as well?

Well I always would have suggested to retire to the pub for further discussions but evidently there are those who aren't quite legal yet.

But ... do you look "of age"?

Disclaimer: I'm of course not advocating anyone break the law here ... do so at your own risk ...  thumbsup 

I guess we'll need to know the plane's schedule before we make a time? & location?

We will do the above, but also bring beer and a bbq to toast the arrival of the A380. Make it a grand day out. Not sure what pubs are around there. I only know the Qantas Club, or that dodgey one in the Stamford.

With the engine "problem" the A380 is having, I wonder when we can all go and see her arrive ... my guess is it will be during the week when I have to go to work ...  thumbsdown 

Guess we have to wait for Airbus and QF to announce the final schedule ...

No Razza74, there's two of us. But it will be a long wait in the Golden West for the A380 to arrive!! Avalon sounds a posibility though. (And to think I used to live in Mentone... that would be handy right now).

On the first weekend in February there is always the annual Sydney Spotters weekend. That is always on. However I am pretty sure SYD airport will be packed with Spotters Sunday week with the A380 Arrival (exact times TBA)

Hey, Melbourne guys,

I'm in flemington and work in the city.

Keen for a melbourne meet whenever, happy to travel. (sorry if that sounds a bit desperate, but there must be quite a few of us out there, so a meet is a great idea!)

Let me know,
