Proposed date for BNE gathering - Wednesday 1st December. Commence at BNE Dom QP after 1pm bar opening time, and move on to Breaky Creek hotel for those who want to include dinner.

I won't be able to attend the proposed BNE function - will be in SYD all week at a National Conference.

Well maybe pick a night for SYD that you can get away.

I am around a fair bit of the time inc. VERY early Dec,, but have 50,000+ miles of Evil Empire flying to do to make status before mid Dec, and trips to ADL and Launceston, which are not great FT hubs it seems.

1 December is OK for me either in SYD or BNE. It'd be a day trip if BNE - and the Brekke Creek might be a no go as I'd be pushing it to make the last flight home (?).

See you there, old son. How about 30 Nov for SYD?

Willyroo, I'll have been in the City seeing clients all day, but I'm sure I'll be able to head out to SYD T3 QP for an FT meeting . Are you flying in that afternoon??

Looks like we have confirmed a date for SYD meeting - Tuesday, 30 November .

December 8 in BNE also suits ATM. Pencil me in if the date changes to this and I'll organise...

I'm good for 30/11 in SYD and 08/11 in BNE.

I'll be the one in the "Civil Disobedience: It's still disobedience" T-shirt.

og, shillard just got too excited about attending his first FT QP function so mis-typed 8/11 (November), instead of the correct date 8/12 (December). He was trying to our American readers as well...don't know whether he succeeded

The one you stole from NM?

I have an appointment in my diary with QF WP at 3:00 pm @ BNE QP 8 December.

And there's the link to the serious matter of Metric Time

You would think being the man of leisure that I am now commiting to those dates would be easy. However, at this stage I can only pencil them in but will plan on being at both Sydney and BNE. I can catch that overpriced train to SYD in order to fit more beers in. Being WP means I don't actually need to be flying on the day, a pleasure I have only used once before.

Sorry, both dates are too far in advanced to mention what I will be wearing as part of the wardrobe rotation schedule. I seem to only schedule that 7 days out and of course, like QF and it's aircraft and your seat, it is still subject to last minute changes.
