Silver, for me. Looks like a good excuse to fly WLG-SYD, or WLG-MEL-SYD, or.........

I'm confirmed and will be bringing friend #1 and friend #2 , who some of you met at OzFest in Cairns way back in 2009, along with me. We're all ticketed with AA miles on Qantas for a 12 day trip.

The countdown begins: 6 months until Oz Fest 16
As normal will be a good FT Do.
If you have not made your flight reservations time to start looking & booking.

  • 29 have signed up as Platinum Definite
  • 13 have signed up as Gold Maybe possible
  • 5 have signed up as Silver Interested
  • 4 have indicated Bronze can't make it
Expect another 6 to 8 to sign up (after cancellations)
Of the 29 who are Platinum 17 are from Australia, 9 from USA, 1 from DXB, 1 from NZ & 1 from UK

26 of the 29 are repeat attendees .
Only 3 newbies at this time:- smat SFO/SEA, cocobird SFO & zol 12R/30L(DXB?)
  • 12 of the 29 have attended the last 6 Oz Fests (MCY NTL OOL KKE ASP PER)

As one who noted rajsngh's thread and the post about Oz Fest 16, I'd like to now confirm myself and Mrs. as Platinum.

Many thanks!

Haven't been to the land down under before - very much looking forward to it!

Actually, since I had the GPUs and was able to confirm into Polaris, I was able to purchase both tix on non-stop LAX-SYD RT flights for less than US$2400 total.
