Just as an aside. Probably nothing since most coming from out of town will probably be staying near the airport but Toronto Pride's kick off is that week. This may boost hotel prices a bit, especially near the city centre. But, if everyone is good with that weekend, I'm still a maybe, but I have something to pencil in that weekend.

Hey George, good to see your going to try and make it. If only to give me a hug that would be great! Keep that chin up!!!

It will be great to see you and all the other a.nutters, it's been a while - I wonder if Len is around these days. I haven't heard from him for a long time.

Oh and Stubie.....it will be great to see you too. Just bring your real guitar....hehe

Someone should make a Facebook event, mainly because MOST people live on Facebook, and it'll help remind them. Also, we can then share photos, converse on the wall, yadda yadda...

Not everyone has the time or ability to be on A.net all the time either, at least with facebook you can keep track of comments since you get an automatic email.

Wasn't saying that it should be moved "from" A.net. However, FB could also be a good back-up to ensure no pertinant details are missed....remember that some people were not even aware of this thread on A.net until they were pointed to it by outside sources ---- And one of those people happened to be you!!!

Anyways, I was only agreeing with someone else's suggestion...which of course is no longer allowed on A.net - hence the masses having defected - including myself.

I'm still awaiting clarification on the proposed date before commiting 100% - however as the days go by and reading "hollier than thou" comments on this site, I may just pass and head back into my non-aviation related cave.

Just another piece of info for you lot if you are interested.

Go to the GTAA website and under Community Relations/Community Outreach you can see they are holding their 2nd annual Runway Run on Saturday June 13. So if any of you are runners and want to run beside the jets - here's your chance!

Cheers!
