Helsinki-meetup?

Due to the milage-junkie routing-disorder I'm suffering from, I will be "stuck" in HEL overnight 1.st of august. I will probably just stay in a hotel close to the airport as I am out by the first flight next morning, but the whole thing got me thinking.
Are people here interested in any meetup activities? And if so, are people interested in just the casual lounge meetup if flights happen to coincide or in something a tad more organized?

I haven't seen any meetup threads on AY fora, but I think it would be fun.

At HEL (landside (like Starbucks)) or closed to HEL airport (like Hilton) would be nice.

Especially in the summer time it makes no sense whatsoever to meet at the dull airport..we all get to spend more than enough time at them anyway..

This is a beautiful city in the summer with many nice seaside restaurants etc. - downtown would get my vote for any such meetup.

A cheap MIA-LHR-HEL fare will do the trick!

well, I arrive HEL around 1400, have a 3 hour layover, then leave and return to HEL again 2235.
I can end the day downtown if we decide on something, but it will probably be past 23 before I show up.

Hmm. Would people here think something like this: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/miles...-meetings.html, as a sticky, would be a good idea? If so, I can do the groundwork. And if we do it as wiki, everyone can edit it.

Good idea

My shifts in Helsinki suck for merting but can make an effort to come if on a day off

I guess I need to get a more travel friendly J-O-B

My comment about not meeting at the airport was not related to any particular evening/event, it was more general if AY board decides to have a broader face2face meeting.

Lounge meetups are another case, of course!
