Cow Do XV (EZE) - Aug 30 to Sep 02, 2019

Its time, again, to thank everybody for their patience... and bring life to the Official Master Thread for the 15th consecutive Cow Do in Buenos Aires (EZE).

As customary, this DO happens over the US Labor Day Weekend - please come back to this thread to learn about this event, including program updates and news. This DO is a gathering of FTers (and non-FTers also welcome) that come together to enjoy Beef & Malbec, and all the other nice & interesting things that Buenos Aires has to offer. From Tango to Polo, Leather, Soccer and one of the Wonders of the World, Buenos Aires is just the welcome gateway to a variety of programs & possibilities....

This DO is one of the longest running yearly events of all FlyerTalk, I think that its tradition is only second to the Australia Do... Im sure that I can be corrected in case Im mistaken, but regardless, this DO is for sure one of the top DO's of these boards in terms of "years of service", and Im very happy & proud to be able to remain a part of this event that brings folks to my hometown, Buenos Aires.

After a great experience last year, we are again naming the 1828 Smart Hotel as the "official" (or suggested) Hotel for this Do. Needless to say, folks are encouraged to stay anywhere they want, and we do of course understand folks have their hotel points to collect, but for those that want a small luxury non-chain hotel at a great value, I would suggest you consider looking into this property.

They are offering a FlyerTalk Special Corporate Rate, please contact the hotel directly and mention the "FlyerTalk Corporate Rate", and they will provide details. All Bookings are to be made directly with the Hotel and handled by each interested guest.

See the hotel website here: http://1828smarthotel.com/en/

Please post your interest in this do and keep us updated as you book your tickets, hotel & other activities !!!!

Cheers from EZE,
Alex / Gaucho100K

I'll keep my eye out. The little routing loophole that allowed me to attend for a day was closed up

This has been on my radar for a few years now, jury's still out, but it's more likely than previous years.

Thanks for confirming the dates.

Please list my early interest. I've had a number of close friends spend the Christmas / New Year period in BA and Mendoza and I have been watching their updates with much jealousy. Here's hoping I can make things work for this do.

There's a thread (started today) about a JFK-EZE business class "sale" fare in the Premium Fare Deals subforum of the MR forum.

Dear Gaucho 100K,

I have booked round trip air arriving 29 August and departing 2 September. Waiting to book hotel informed by your plans for the Do. I could book the 1842 like last year, but will wait until you advise us of the details.

Cheers,

-Cyborg

I don't get out of the airline-specific forums much, but just stumbled across this. Count me very interested! I'll see whether I can confirm some travel plans over the weekend here.
