SIN DO 2014, January 16-20, 2014 Singapore

SIN DO 2014 is going to be the 12th anniversary for this DO. It will take place during January 16-20, 2014 and will be hosted by bschaff1 and lowjhg. I’ll be coordinating the attendance list and lowjhg and I will be working on the logistics for the events. For the past two years lowjhg has been invaluable in helping plan and coordinate events locally. To begin, a dinner will kick off the DO on Thursday January 16 and the DO will go through the early morning hours on Monday, January 20 (perhaps at a party).

SIN DO 2013 turned out to be a good deal larger than expected. In the past it was a 55-60 person event and in 2013 the number was somewhere between 75-80 attendees so I’m hoping for 100 in 2014.

I’m going to wait before posting an official schedule of events, but we’re going to keep the Chili Crab dinner and Friday late night hawker center trip with a similar schedule and almost all new/different dining venues. Also, for 2014 we have two plans in the work for something aviation related on Friday and travel related on Saturday. Those details are a few months out. Details will emerge on all the events once it’s practical to coordinate them. However, the dates are firm and the hawker center trip will be on Friday night and Chili Crab dinner will be on Saturday.

Additionally, we are going to be making a few changes with logistics for 2014. First, for attendance tracking post or PM if you will be attending for now. I’ll put together a live spreadsheet to track this information in the coming weeks. For transportation we’re going to try arranging buses to some events because having 20 people take taxis from the same hotel wastes time and money.

Individual event registration is online. Please fill out the eventbrite registration page

Well done bschaff1 and lowjhg for 2013 and now 2014. Having missed 2013 after having a great time at the previous two years' SIN DOs, I'll register myself as very interested for 2014.

EDIT: Currently working on planning to attend.

I said yes to the last one and couldn't make it. Please put me down as a Maybe for this one. Will definitely try to string together some interesting flights and make it happen.
