Would you be interesting in joining 1 or both of the Charity Wine Tastings...? which meals would you want to join in..? give me a little more details but I will be happy to try to accommodate you both.

We're a big "tentative" right now since I'm not sure of all the details for the weekend yet.

Thanks,

Mike

I have updated the Schedule of Events on the 1st page of this Master Thread, please refer to Post #3 for details.
Here is a link to the post: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/30546965-post3.html

IMPORTANT: Please note that this year, the 1st Charity Wine Tasting will be held on FRIDAY, rather than the customary Saturday.

Also, to make sure nobody gets a Cow over-dose, we are planning on Italian lunches and Grilled Cow dinners. Many attendees over the years have had trouble with having 2 large meals in one day, so the idea is to allow everybody to pace themselves to better enjoy the experiences....

Some of you have already indicated your attendance to various events, I will start a list of confirmed attendance to each event in Post #4 of this thread... please be so kind as to refer to this post and in case there is a need to modify something, please let me know by posting on this Master Thread.

I'd put this off because I was waiting for a few things to line up properly, but I have just booked, and am looking forward to my second COW DO!

Scheduled arrival at EZE is 10:20am on 8/30 -- please put me down for all Friday activities (assuming no IRROPs ) and Saturday as well.

I booked the same place I stayed last year, the Park Tower (next to the Sheraton Convention Center)

BTW I am also considering the day trip via ferry to Colonia, although would probably have to do it Saturday given my schedule, in which case I'd skip out on lunch and meet you all for dinner. Will let you know... (anyone else have any interest in this? I've also heard good and interesting things about Tigre so that's plan B)

Hello Gaucho100K!
Please put the 2 of us down for everything except for the wine tastings. We are already in country and will be in BA during the Do.

Perfect, thanks a lot for the updated schedule. It looks great, and I like alternating between cow and others

Looking forward to another fantastic Cow Do!

Iím in for both tastings plus dinner Saturday and lunch Monday.

Anyone interested in a meet-up Sunday in San Telmo? There are a number of informal places, including standup counters in the food market (not the Sunday market on Plaza Dorrego), plus other more upscale places.

I'm not a regular visitor to the Argentina forum (and I only come to the country once every couple of years or so), but as luck will have it I'll be in town! I'm arriving on DL from ATL the morning of Sat., 8/31, and I would *love* to attend if the event isn't on Friday night.

Please keep me posted!

EDIT: Just found the schedule so far. Hmmm.... I won't be able to make lunch on the Saturday, but dinner could be a possibility. The lunch Monday might work, but it depends on how my meeting schedule turns out. I should know more in a couple of weeks.
