I might attend at SQ421's urging, however this will depend on work commitments in the new year

Just booked flights. Staying at Hilton BNE on Saturday as I tend to at these things. Get in at 1250 local time so Breakfast Creek Lunch might be very iffy.

Get into BNE on QF1546 (arr. 1250) on Satuday, leaving BNE on QF1549 (dep. 1410) on Sunday.

I should be able to guest 2 (1 spot is already taken per discussions in this thread) upon arrival into BNE. Might be useful for those arriving at an hour that is just late enough to not bother with lunch but sufficiently early to not hang around the terminal.

Mr Hancock is now Gold for this event. He will be terrorising the good people of QLD for the week in advance of the AGM and will be departing on QF637, He is one of those dreadful Platinum One types.

I can only offer my apologies in advance for him.

If anyone want to organise something for those living in Brissie or doing an extended visit for a night before/after the event let me know

During a recent meeting in the CBR QF J lounge with PeteJ and SQ421 (Mon 12 Jan), I rang the BNE QF ex-RGM and he took my call. Seems he has had an extended holiday and this was his first day back at work. He had read my emails and I was on his whiteboard "to do" list.

He is trying to organise us to be taken on a tour of QF Engineerings' Airbus maintenance hangers at BNE - he needs to check their availability.

Then on my flight to BNE, I sit in J with a "neighbour" (we see each other during our morning dog walks). Seems I didn't realise her past life was with QF (Credit Union) and her husband still works in QF Engineering BNE. I think it was meant to be .

Thank you for the heads up.

We were promised a "special event" last year, so I will keep the weekend open if possible.
