If anybody has any ideas or suggestions, please do say, and we will see what can be sorted.
Cant wait to see KARFA running up the rock with a monumental hangover

I see there's going to about 14 of us in GIB Friday night. I'd be happy to help arrange a pre-DO dinner in GIB Friday, if that's already been started or there are others that are interested.
Count me in for a Friday night pre-Do dinner Not too fussy where or the type of food...

I would like to add my thanks to madfish and his "team" for what is clearly a logistical nightmare!

Did anything come of the boat trip Sunday morning or is that not practical?

Unfortunately I'm now booked on a work trip that's taking me to the US over this weekend so I'll be unable to attend. Shame really as I was looking forward to it, the only consolation is the work trip is 760TP up from the 20TP to GIB!!

I do have a room at the HIX, if anyone is in need of accommodation then PM me.

I've updated the wiki.

Sorry to hear this, but at least those TPs will ease the pain.

Is your room pre-paid?

Boat trip on hold at the moment. May look at it again as an option.

Getting closer and looking forward to it. I’m on the later flight but it seems my ticket is a plus fare so might see about going out on the earlier one.

Id love to be in the WhatsApp group so please let me know in due course.

Is is it worth also asking the hotel if we can have an A frame board and some post it’s and markers somewhere in the lobby that we can write updates and leave messages as well?

Am Gold and want to see some of the lounges in T3 that I haven’t been to so hopefully can lounge hop.

Just FYI all, folks - Sat 23rd is the day of Gibraltar Vs Rep of Ireland in the Euro 2020 soccer qualifiers. So I (and probably 1-2000+ other boys in green will be in GIB that weekend too :-)

Game is on Sat pm I think. I'm staying in the Seabourn and would love to say Hi to the group at some point. Planning to arrive Sat am and leave Sun pm, likely on the evening flight to LHR.

I have a feeling whoever set the pricing for the HIX on the Saturday night is going to be kicking themselves...

Wait, we're going to get mixed up in a football crowd?

This explains why apparently no one is interested in taking large restaurant bookings. It also focuses the mind a little about eating and drinking plans that night.
