Something something the next Drunk DO is coming, you already know you want to be there!

Saturday, May 1, 2021 at 2000 ET (1700 PT/1400 HST)

If you can't say bugger I am drunk by the end of it, you're doing it wrong!

As always...

As usual we will be utilizing the Zoom platform. A link will be distributed via PM several hours before the event.

Be there or be sober!

kinda questioning the wisdom of holding a FlyerTalk DO on May Day, when "Mayday" is the standard radio call meaning "aircraft in distress"

I think it could easily be appropriate, as some of us may be "distressed" by the end of the Do...

I’ll try to bring back something from Hawaii to mix and drink during the DO. My plan is to hunt down a local sugarcane rhum agricole that I spotted last time I visited Oahu. Wish me luck! Looking forward to the DO.

< pedantic literalist alerts >
  1. “wise” =\= “appropriate”
  2. “dis-tressed” could be interpreted as having one’s tresses removed
< /alerts >

🥃🍻 we can discuss further in LEX 🍻🥃

This might be the first one I miss. I possibly have another engagement that evening, and I'm on a 7am flight the next morning so don't want to get too buggered.

Much earlier in covid-times, I actually witnessed this live on a Do ... though not a Bugger Do, but it certainly was a drunk Do if somehow someone was convinced to randomly shave half their head.

Count me in for this, though I'll be home, so crappy internet connection may be an issue.

I remember hair cutting parties in grad school, with a bottle of scotch.
