Count me in.

Perhaps Dawn Gilbertson of the AZ Republic would like to join us?

Tempe might be a good spot for those of us flying home on Fridays. Also I go out of my way to support Tempe establishments because they are

I'll be in Brazil until the beginning of October. After that I'm interested until the end of October (Peru).

Sounds like at least 1/2 of interested parties are out next weekend. Perhaps I should just pick a weekend day next month. Are Friday's or Saturday's in general better for anyone? Makes no difference for me unless I'm traveling on a Friday.

I usually travel back on thursdays. Of course I'm sure I just jinxed myself and will now travel every friday for a while. I'll be back the 29th of Sept but obviously that friday I'll not be in the mood for Happy Hour..just sleep. Any Friday after that should work.

Given that this is largely a group of travelers, coming up with a day that works for everybody would be something nearly impossible.

For me, the best time is Friday after working hours. Looking at my calendar, I have no weekend travel planned at all for October as things stand now.

Saturday afternoon or evenings work the best for me. I'll be gone on the 1st of Oct, but will be in town until almost the end of the month.

I'll be in SJU next Fri, for an FT gettogether

On a side note- some of us have tried to plan these on and off for yrs

The only two well attended ones were :

1. Feb 2002 - the draw that time was that B747 was to be in town - till the INS stopped that from happening- 17 attendees though

2. Last month when VJ did a MR seminar - there were about 26 or 27 of us there

I'm game and will gladly organize something if anyone is at all interested.

Thought I'd ressurect this. Anyone want to put a saturday night date on the calendar? Seriously, after conversing with all you folks for so long it would be nice to put a face with a font

I'm usually around so if you guys can tolerate an undergraduate college student (who is a US Gold though) I'd love to join.

I'm also an undergrad. I'd be glad to meet some of the frequent posters of the HP forum, even though I don't post in this forum as much as I should be. That and I've always wondered who has been behind the insighful and funny posts.

I will be in Hawaii on the $93 NWA fare this weekend, but would love to meet y'all some other time.

Can we schedule it for March 18 or 19? I am tied up on the east coast until then.

I'll also be in Hawaii on the $93 NWA fare. Most other March dates look good right now.

Are your crediting to HP or NWA? I was going to credit to HP for EQMs, but NWA is giving me 2500 bonus RDMs and I need slome SkyTeam EQMs anyway

See you on the plane and in Phoenix. I will hopefully have my FT luggage tags on my bag as I take my exit row seat.
