AirTrain

I am at Eagle Junction waiting for the AirTrain. If anyone is on the train arriving at Domestic at 1455 please let me know and I will try to find you onboard.

Hope you all have a lovely time. We’re doing it tough by the pool here in Darwin

Guess Bundy Bear is out given his injury sustained (yesterday)?
even with a broken arm I put in a quick appearance.

Thanks for organising QF WP

Thanks to QF staff who looked after us and made us welcome. Thanks also to the back room catering group who put together the trays of snacks which were most appreciated. QF WP gets a special thanks for the arrangements and companionship. It was a most enjoyable afternoon and it was great to meet friends old and new.

And, on a serious note, this is only the second time in 17 years (?) that I can recall a serious discussion - this year’s being next year’s meeting date. The earlier one being what two letter initials should be assigned to each membership level.

Back home In MEL. Thanks so much to QF WP for organising and thanks also to QF staff for looking after us. And thanks to all attendees, if not for you/us these things would not happen. A most enjoyable day.

Really sad I missed it this time. Would have been nice to catch up with a few people. Hopefully I will be able to join again next year.

As I said in my speech, the meeting is a combination of me arranging and the membership for turning up (sometimes at a reasonable expense). Whilst I have the contacts and desire to arrange, this will continue to be Flyertalk's longest running get-together in Australia.

Have sent off an email to Linda (QC Manager) and Elsa (Regional Manager): "Just wanted to thank you and your Qantas Club staff for hosting our get together on Saturday afternoon. Taylor (one of the Accor staff) was fantastic and she along with all the QC and Accor staff made sure we were welcomed and well looked after."

I'll now arrange the next AGM thread, so this will be one of the longest running threads before the actual event.

Response from Linda received:

"You are more than welcome thank you so much for the feedback. I heard the AGM went well and had a great atmosphere. I’ll pass on the feedback regarding Taylor this is great recognition for her thank you. Look forward to catching up with you soon when you’re coming through the Lounge."
