Sounds like a blast, please sign me up for the whole package ^

Been reading great TR's about these SK Do's for a couple of years, and it's really high time I actually joined one myself

Thumbs up

Crap. I will be on paternity leave from April 1st and 6 months after that, so unlikely that I will go to the US. However, ARN is definately doable, so count me in for that part.

Nice initiative, tommy777! ^

Small issue with the schedule: last chance to catch SK (or anyone actually) to ORD on thursday would be 13.10 via CPH. No time for lunch really?
Is it better to catch the direct flight on friday? Too little time at ORD?

Put me on the perhaps/waiting list... but as an EBB, I should not get priority on this waiting list either
It is likely I can't make it for ARN but that should work out for ORD and IAH from/to CPH.

I was trying to compress everything and start lunch around 11. BTW, who said we are flying SAS over the pond??

put me on the list for the grande event, sounds very fun. I'd love to se Ua facilities at Ord. ^. Dates for fall should not be an issue except maybe for beginning of sept, but that would still count as summer right

Anyone care to suggest some dates?

Also, please send me an e-mail containing your FT name and real name so I can keep you updated on the progress via e-mail.

For security reasons, I have deleted all previous e-mails containing all info about previous DO participants.

I'm in, depending upon the dates. I've got my parents 60 wedding anniversary and my Momís 80 birthday in September (in CHI) some time. Donít know when yet, but Iíll try real hard to make this do.
