United 2012 SFO Family Day Plane Pull (FT Team Wins!)

Our dear friend Goalie cannot make it to Family Day this year so I will be coordinating the plane pull team(s) in his absence.

Thanks to United, you will have the opportunity to participate in at least 2 pulls this year!

12:30PM - we have been asked to help the SFO Station complete their team and need 10 FTers for this time slot. I still need a few alternates for this team!

2:00PM - this is the official FT team and we need 20 FTers for this time slot. I need need a few alternates for this team!

Once your invitation to the event is confirmed please respond to this thread (or PM me directly) to sign up and get the necessary forms. These will have to be filled out and signed before you can participate in the Plane Pull. Please indicate which teams/times you would like to join so I can keep track of how many participants we have. United has stated that nobody will be left out so if we have enough participants we can form another team.

The staging area will be behind the A320 we will be pulling which is usually the first United plane you will pass as you enter the event. Please arrive at the time you signed up for as we do have alternates for both time slots and it is on a first come basis. As I have pulled before myself and my +1 will be more than happy to sit out and let you pull should we have too many pullers.

Looking forward to seeing all of you there.

William

I'd like to join the FT team (missed them last year), but I'm also happy to help the SFO team if they need any additional volunteers.

As the man in the anchor position for the winning UA Family Day 2011 plane pull Flyertalk team I'm throwing down the gauntlet to the 2012 team...

PULL!!!!!!

And bring home another win!

Sadly, I can't be there this year.

P.S. We set a record last year so the bar is high!

Not to add any pressure or anything but Team Flyertalk is the reigning champion three years running so c'mon folks-sign up as we have a reputation to uphold

Count me in for both! Hopefully I can make them -- or at least one of the pulls.

What's the policy on guests of FTers who are going to family day and also want to pull?
