[left]PHX DO - Saturday 25 August 2018
For other PHX TP runs see bottom of wiki

A mid-point meet up at Hilton Garden Inn Phoenix Airport for those travelling far and wide on the OTP/PHX tier point collection run. All welcome!

The name badges have been created - Thank you Megaloman.
You'll find these somewhere at the HGI in PHX!

There is an active WhatsApp group for OTP/PHX travellers. Ask for more details.

A bunch of us are meeting on Thursday 16 August at All Bar One (Cannon St. London) for a semi-impromptu drink: Get to meet some other Runners, share last minute tips, enjoy the sun etc. All FTers welcome

Fitch has very kindly offered to do a booze run to enjoy drinks/snacks around the pool, given the hotel bar shuts early. Please PM him for a link to place your order before Thurs 23 August.

No worries. Thanks.

Having bumped into a huge amount of you by accident travelling OTP-LHR on Friday morning I`ve joined the forum to say a huge thank you to those that i spoke to. You were all extremely kind to this novice and I learned so much from you in a really short space of time.
I`ve loved my first tier point run and look forward to becoming a regular on the forum.
Thanks again and safe travels home.

Exactly! And thank you. My problem is that I can`t remember all of the usernames that I was told......but I`ll work it after a while I`m sure.

Don’t try and connect with reality! Occupying the FT bubble is sufficient, and usernames become dominant after a while ... to the extent I can never remember real identities!

Hi @mfordy, I think you loaned me an iPhone cable at LAX hotel shuttle stop.

Hope you had had a good stay in Phoenix.

Hello @deboyzoned,

Yes, that`s me and, of course, my other lead broke that night! I got in a taxi and asked the driver to take me somewhere to buy a new one and he immediately gave me his!

The Phoenician has been great and I`m flying PHX-LHR-OTP-LHR from 8.00pm tonight.
Thanks so much for all the advice when we met.

Hello all,

Very pleased to be home but delighted to have been part of such a fun, mad few days.

It was great to see some familiar faces and also meet some fun new people too.

Thanks to everyone who made the event possible, but especially teledude and also dylanks, madfish, Fitch and TPrun, who all contributed to the event.

Safe travels for those still somewhere between PHX, HEL and OTP or making their way home elsewhere.

Just wanted to say it was great to meet everyone and a HUGE thank you to everyone for their wisdom, patience, kindness and generousity. It has made my first ever tier point run so much fun and enjoyable.

Home sweet home! But what an incredible few days: I will never forget my first TP run of OTP-PHX!
14 flights made, 5 cities visited and definitely a bunch of new friendships created.

Thank you all for making this trip so memorable, particularly the pool party! The bittersweet factor being it was over way too quick.

To those Iíve connected with: please donít be a stranger.
To anyone else: I did a picture trip report which you can find on my Instagram account. Please search for me: Instagr.aman, or check out the report here:

All the best!

Despite only attending after having @teledude twisting my arm it was great meeting you all. It did seem deja-vu at times, walking into the CCR several times to be greated by one of you or to walk into QF LAX lounge and end up rearranging the furniture with enthusiastic encouragement of consumption of champagne from the staff.

Will be strange to be in the CCR in a couple of hours without the usual suspects.
