    The (in)famous Lindsay Wilson will be in Melbourne next week, and we have decided that this is a good excuse to arrange a get-together for all contributers to the AFF Discussion Board who will be in Melbourne on Monday 13 February.

    Date: 13 Feb
    Time: from 7:00pm
    Venue: The bar in the Holiday Inn on Flinders, 575 Flinders Lane, Melbourne

    I (admin) and Lindsay will definately be there. I would be great to put a face to a name, so if you can please join us for a bit of a chin-wag over a few beers.

    OK: Count me in. I will even take the train into work on Monday instead of driving.

    I would love to make this event.

    I am in ADL from Sunday to Thursday so I may need to consider a mini status run if there are enough people going to this get together.

    I would love to be there too, but like Johnk my week next week will be spent in the lovely town of Adelaide. Or as I like telling people who ask me what I am doing for Valentines Day, I tell them I will be in the Romance Capital of the world :)

    I'll be in Melbourne at contractor meetings all day Monday. Unfortunately I'll have to be back up the bush by night time. :( :(

    Good luck and best wishes to all who are able to attend. :D :)

    I'm actually catching up with a couple of mates I haven't seen for a fair while that evening. Will be in reasonably close proximity to HI, so depending how things go, will try and get there for a couple. I take it the intention is to meet and remain at the HI?

    Sorry I haven't posted here yet, but better late than never.

    Yes, I'll be there - I even have convinced IainF (who also will be in MEL Monday to Wednesday) to stay at the Holiday Inn on Flinders. So we are both definites.

    Look forward to meeting those othrs that I have met through FT functions (serfty and infoworks).

    I'll be there earlier than 7pm with IainF I'd say, so if you want to catch up earlier serfty and others, please come to Reception and ring my room, or check the Bar. I'm at Rialto North all day for meetings and will be back at the hotel shortly after 5.30pm.

    Looking forward to meeting admin (although I've spoken to him a couple of times) and any other members who can make it.

    tuapekastar, yes that's the objective.

    Hope you guys all had a great time. Would have liked to have popped over from ADL, but didn't get the chance.

    Quite well it went, I think.

    Arrived 6:35, & IanF were already there; Mwenezi about ¼ hour later. admin (AKA Clifford) arrived shortly after 7pm and we were able to get a brief rundown on the history of AFF. :)

    Lindsay employed his mobile to contact a couple of the most regular posters here.

    tuapekastar arrived just after 8pm, 10 mins before I left the happy crew to their discussions about travel, mile/points, being comped status etc., to catch my railed chariot home.

    Well, any gory details? Anyone out of line, or was it all very civilized?

    I'm especially interested now having read thadocta's [name] [number] post (No) Prize up for grabs thread - and finding it locked
    :( . Any discussion on the suggestions raised about a social section in said thread? Sorry to go OT, but I'm hoping Admin or Lindsay Wilson will respond to this...

    And Lindsay's phone was engaged when I tried to call, so it was IainF that had the pleasure of receiving my call 8) .

    Nothing gory while I was there! All very civilized discussion on various topics of relevance to AFF. Someone else will need to report on anything that happened before I got there. Finished up around 2100 (Lindsay and IainF could wait no longer to eat, and I can't say I blame them. Nice to meet admin and a few AFFers.

    At least one post was deleted from that thread before it was locked. The captain is quick to ensure that everyone returns to their seats very promptly in the event of turbulence. :mrgreen:
