1st ever YHZ Do - Date TBD (fall 2021?)

A few of us ( smallmj codfather RangerNS ) have been talking and we decided it is about time to host a good, old-fashioned, maritime Do!

I will be turning this thread into a wiki and will be providing more information, but for now we are confirming the date (Saturday June 13, 2020).

All Do related activities will take place in Downtown Halifax and the wiki will contain info on all hotels within walking distance.

Rough plan is for pre-Do drinks at a local waterfront pub (5:00 pm), dinner at 7:00 pm and a post-Do activity, followed by a likely post-post Do activity (probably involving a visit to Pizza Corner at 2:00am to sample a local delicacy, donairs)!

We do plan on providing ideas for optional day time activities as well.

+1's are encouraged! (+2's as well, no questions asked!)

Very cool to see this being organized. Potentially could be my first ever do. I go to school almost year round in Ontario, but may plan a little trip home in that coincides with this. Will depend on completing my flight training by then. (never know with Ontario weather )

One of the options that came up for me was SFO-YYC-YYZ-YHZ. But I believe the YYC-YYZ red-eye was a 7M8. I'll stick to my 789.

Yeah, I'm definitely not doing a redeye. I'll spend the $200 or whatever for the Sheraton at T3 if I don't take the direct on the Saturday (although that would mean certainly missing the pre-Do drinks).

Yeah YHZ is proving a little annoying for me. I hate transcon red-eyes. But the only other option is the 4pm SFO-YYZ narrow-body, an overnight, and then YHZ in the morning.

I may still switch to that, but it's annoying for other reasons.
