    Hi all - Having seen that Lindsay Wilson has almost worked out who is going I thought we might set up a breakaway thread to work what/if we do anything around the event including organising any live blogging from the event itself (given I assume it isnt all just the lunch discussion with the QFF CEO given the WP1 announcements).

    http://www.australianfrequentflyer.com.au/community/qantas-frequent-flyer-program/have-your-say-qff-ceo-32830.html

    We also might like to finish off the afternoon with a HP* :shock: in a local hostelry in honour of the HPs drunk occasionally in the QPs

    Attendees we are aware of are:


    1. simongr (SYD)
    2. drewbles (MEL)
    3. awilcockson (BNE)
    4. trippin_the_rift (BNE)
    5. thewinchester (PER)
    6. Febs (SYD[MEL])
    7. melbourne rebel (MEL)
    8. bugayev (MEL)

    Excellent, for one second, I thought you were going to force me to drink a pretty ordinary lager ;)

    From the list above, I think i've only met one of you (trippin_the_rift) before.

    Look forward to meeting you all and putting names to new faces.

    Post-event HP's

    On a post-lunch watering hole visit, I'm more than happy to join in for that assuming I don't have too horrific a itinerary ex-PER.

    Livecasting

    I have asked Red Roo via PM last night for clarification to ensure there's no problems with any of us live tweeting/blogging.

    If they are ok with this, who amongst us is planning to do what? My personal plan is to live tweet the key points, and then hopefully a reasonably comprehensive post-game blog from audio/written notes.

    Also for the twitter crowd, could we agree on a twitter hashtag beforehand to make things easier - something short and simple like #qfflunch perhaps?

    If there's a few of us who might consider tweeting, it will be possible to setup a livestream so those who don't tweet can follow the discussion via the web.

    I will be happy to stay for a couple of drinks (subject to us not getting QFF to fund drinks at Rockpool for the afternoon). I have tweeted before but not much - happy for others to lead a charge - most of my comments will be on the food of course ;)

    Well I wasn't going to be so presumptuous as to put that suggestion out there, but now that someone else has ...

    For those of us coming from Melbourne (drewbles, melbourne rebel,bugayev) we should plan time and location in the Business Lounge to meet? I can only presume they will put us on the same flight.

    Works for me. We should hear from QF sometime shortly but I'm assuming they'll have some flexibility with flights. If we can all share a cab from the airport to Rockpool it'll also be substantially cheaper than the exorbitant rail :)

    I would assume that they would lay on some form of transport surely?

    I'll wait and see. The PM made only mention of what time to be there. Will await the phone call I guess.

    I have requested a stretch Hummer from my office in [redacted] to the event.



    Seriously.

    Can I have a lift? :)

    (Assuming QF aren't providing transport)

    Works for me too! I asked Red Roo regarding transportation, and they weren't sure last night but were going to check.
