Singapore do 2019 - 18-20 Jan 2019

With much fanfare, the Singapore Do is back again in 2019! This venerable DO, the longest Asian DO on Flyertalk, has been uniting Flyertalkers all over the world since the early 2000s.

In 2018, the DO was given a complete makeover, with more structured activities and dining to reflect the diversity of Singapore. 2019 will not be different, with similar activities on the planning table.

Ladies and Gentlemen, start up your engines!


* Should anyone wants to help out to plan this DO, please send me or bschaff1 a PM. Cheers.

Well done! This is a great testament to the nature of FT. One point though is it is the longest running International DO on FT. The only one going longer is the BRT.

No competition at all.

They started in '04 after I started the SIN DO in '03 (in ‘02 the SIN Run page went live) so unless this one just does not happen this will always be the longest running one. You've got the gold on this one :-)
