For the third year running a get together being organised for in the Brisbane Virgin Australia Lounge on 23rd August.

This may be of interest to many here.

3rd VA AGM, Sat 23 August 2014, BNE Dom Lounge

QF WP has been doing the legwork and has posted this:

She will most likely be there to host the event and ensure her staff are getting drinks and nibbles delivered to our area. She also has catered with a full sized cake one year to celebrate the advent of Sabre.

Annette has no trouble with the numbers accessing the Lounge as I give her the list of peoples' real names, their status level and their flight details. Given the vast majority of attendees are Platinum and flying, we have more than enough to guest in the few that don't have access.

Everyone have drink for me, it's my birthday! Unfortunately that means I'll be in Sydney and won't be able to make it :( So colour me bronze, or should it be red considering it's VA lol.

Sorry - flyertalk blocked for me at the moment :rolleyes: (long story) - can someone just summarize the start and end time, if its still on between 430pm-5pm I will actually be flying through BNE on VA (tight connection between ADL and TSV) so put me down as attending, not very active on FT but would catch up for a drink if there are any AFFers still there. Would be good to meet a few of you as I don't often get the chance.

It should be in full swing around then so you will be welcome.

Here's the current OP of the FT thread:

Where: BNE Domestic The Lounge, in the Quiet Corner (turn right after service desk and we're in the back corner)
When: Saturday, 23 August 2014 @ 3pm
RSVP: to this thread, we'll keep a running list of attendees (Gold - Yes I'm a definite; Silver - I'm a probable/maybe; Bronze - Sorry, I'm a scratching). Also, include your VFF status please.

Now in order to correctly constitute a meeting notice, here are the minutes of the last meeting:
2nd VA AGM, Sat 10 August 2013, 3pm

For those who like a bit of history (nostalgia), here are the previous threads:

Inaugural DJ AGM thread

There's usually preliminary discussion about flying (VA centric, of course) as well as lunch at the Brekky Creek Hotel prior to the event in separate threads (for those that fly up early or locals that want to show the convivial atmosphere to our visitors):

Breakfast Creek Hotel lunch thread -
