The 2019 London DO - Friday 27th September

Back by popular demand and now a tradition in its 7th year, young @KARFA and I are pleased to announce the date for the 2019 London DO: Friday 27th September.

Sadly, our most kind host of previous years has moved to the other side of the world so we will be looking for a new venue but for now wanted to gauge numbers and get into your diaries. If you have any ideas on venues or are willing to host us, please get in touch.

Check out previous DOs here - it's usually a fun, sociable evening (until the kids starts misbehaving - which is usually at the afterparty. If @teledude offers you a shot, run as fast as you can). Lurkers, regulars, newbies, plus 1's, non BA, non OW members - all welcome.

The 2018 London Summer DO - Friday 13 July 2018

The London DO 2017 - Friday 30th June

The BA London DO 2013

@KARFA, can you do some wiki magic please. tada.

I really enjoyed my first London DO last year, and at present Iím not busy on that date - so count me in.

Is there no chance of working with our previous hostís former colleagues? The venue was fantastic and the money raised was for a great cause - it would be a shame to lose that side of the proceedings.

Sorry you can't make this one. Yes there will be the usual pre-Christmas drinks on one of the Friday evenings running up to Christmas. I would guess the date will be advertised around October time.

As with the previous 6 London DOs I will be travelling on the DO date, I'm also heading to PHL on 28 September so if any DO-goers are in T5 that Saturday morning-after, feel free to say hello - if you can hold your head up

What perfect timing! I am already planning to travel up from Wales that day and stay overnight near T5, ready for an ex-EU positioning flight to ARN the following afternoon. So I am pretty sure I will be able to attend. I shall also look forward to saying ‘hello’ to @Tobias-UK on 28th if he is still around T5 late morning.
