Exclamation 17th Annual AGM: BNE Sat 23 Feb 2019

After being reminded (nicely) on multiple occasions, I suppose I'f better find my way clear to organising this years' AGM. I know it's late notice, but as I said in my post in last years thread, the joys of being a sole person earning income in my business and 2018 wasn't a great year in our industry...

So, here I go.

Where: BNE (just our standard meet-up in the QP) - will case the joint on Thursday AM to work out a spot as haven't been in the QP for a while.
When: 3pm Saturday, 23th February 2019

RSVP: to this thread, we'll keep a running list of attendees (Platinum - Yes I'm a definite; Gold - I'd like to come, let me organise myself; Silver - I'm a possible/maybe; Bronze - Sorry, I'm a scratching; Copper - reserved for penegal).

Now in order to correctly constitute a meeting notice, here are the minutes of the last meeting: 16th Annual AGM + Tour(s) (TBC): SYD Sat 24 Feb 2018

Please record my confirmation of copper status.

Having missed the last few, I will do my best to get along. I now have a ďmumĒ to visit in BNE, so contemplating an overnight, to combine purposes unless she attends this event.

Will be endeavoring - QF are charging $199 each way currently.


Keeping a look out for sale fares, not that there is much time.

During VA's happy hour Thursday, Qantas quietly matched the $125 MEL/BNE fare that was available that weekend. Hoping similar happens within a week or two.
