Seeing as the Moose has been deleted, this thread had too - so here's the new version.

There is a meeting in Christchurch on the 30th Sept, 5pm at Brewers Arms.

All welcome but please leave any bad attitudes at home :)

There's a guest speaker.

It's dress up - please come dressed as your Sharetrader name.

First round is on Percy too :t_up:

Thanks Percy for the times/date etc.

Anyway its on 30 September and was scheduled for 7.00 p.m. but some of us Aucklanders who are flying down for the AIR agm will be there for dinner from ~ 5.30 p.m.
All welcome. Forest and I have to leave at 8.00 p.m. to catch the last flight home so could I perhaps suggest that the meeting time be changed to either 5.30 or 6 so we have a good chance to have a decent chin wag and a few drinks with the Mainlanders and others attending ?

I can avoid the dress up and come as myself seeing as I don't use a pseudonym :)

I suspect we have to be sure HNZ is back in triple figures on the scoreboard then Uncle Percy will be in fine mood :)

Folks,

Just to clarify things. The Moose, at his request asked me to delete his account along with all his posts. I gave him a week to make sure and at his request carried that out today.

Nothing untoward, nothing sinister, no conspiracy - just the Moose as a member asked me to carry out something which I did.

I could of made it more interesting with drug cartels, or something more sinister but the reality is a member asked me to do something and I carried it out, - sorry bit boring I know!

Regards,
Vince

I think he was too scared to follow through on that purchase of a kilo of silver from me. Maybe margin calls got him...hey someone had to lighten the mood and add some conspiracy theory :)
At least I won't get caught at airport security trying to smuggle what looks like a bomb disguised in a silver bar onto the aircraft LOL.

Thanks nextbigthing for restarting this thread.
As sharetrader tradition calls for, the person starting a ChCh sharetrader get together thread buys the first round.
With our dear friends from Auckland and Blenheim attending, I expect you to show good etiquette before putting further pressure on my already besieged wallet.!
Cool Bear likes a large one.Be careful he does not bring his own two pint glass!

That does sound fair. And seeing as Moosie started it and he will be in attendance it would only be fair for him to unleash some of those trading gains.
So Moosie, first round is on you. If you don't agree then post that here under your Moosie username in the next hour otherwise we'll call it official.

Never knew you Moosie, but enjoyed your posts. Sad to see you go. (I hope Mooses get reincarnated as Moles or Lions (or something.)

Onwards and upwards. In the meantime I'm thinking...
a.) Don't take ST (or life) too seriously and spread your risks.
b.) It's only money
c.) DYOR

"It's dress up - please come dressed as your Sharetrader name."

I will not be there dressed as a wire-haired Airedale Terrier. I do not have enough black or brown hair. I havn't got enough of any coloured hair. I will just bring my usual terrier attitudes.
Moosie, I hope that you are there.

But you could easily come dressed as a dog, and there's a few shares out there that have been dogs, so you could dress as your worst performing share :)

Would it be possible to have some numbers for those who will be joining Forest and Roger, for a meal ,as we will need to book a table,and what time should we book it for.I take it Moosie will still be there? I am think it may have to be 6.30 pm as they will need to leave at 8pm to catch their flight home.

Will hopefully come along, haven't been to a meet in a while. Shrewd told me he was going? Haven't invested in the stock market in a while but would be good to see the old guard.

Is Bermuda about these days?

Hi AJ,
I have sent Bermuda a PM telling about the get together,but as I note he has not posted for awhile he may not log in to see it.
Perhaps Shrewdy could contact him?Anyone friends with Ronthepom?
I rang The Brewers Arms today.We have a table booked from 5pm onwards.Should extra numbers turn up an extra table[s] can be added to ours.Some will be having a meal,while others will be joining us about 7pm.

Don't forget this is on tomorrow night people (currently Monday 29th) and don't forget it's dress up. You have to dress up as your sharetrader name. Percy has a great Thomas the tank engine train costume and Moosie has a great Moose costume, so don't let the team down!

I think Forest and I are exempt as we're attending the Air AGM before-hand, (would look bloody funny though if he wore a hat with a pine tree on top of it to the Air AGM) :)

A word of warning for Moosie - the Brewers is the local for some trigger-happy deerstalkers. Don't start any seasonal rutting actions within 100 metres of the bar.

BTW, The Celtic Red is a good drop......

I'll be there and will come for some tea at 5pm. Don't think Shrewd has been in touch with Bermuda for a little either. Not sure about Ronthepom.

See you there!

We had an enjoyable get together at the Brewers arm, good food, good discussions and good company.

Thanks Percey for booking this pleasant venue and making Rogers and my visit to ChCh so seamless with our transport.

It was a real pleasure catching up with friends and meeting new ones. Many thanks mate for your help with transport. Next time I think we'll need to get overnight accommodation as I know both Forest and I would have loved to stay longer and enjoy everyone's company :) P.S. The last flight home Chch to AKL for the evening was Jetstar, their old plane was extremely cramped, I'd gladly pay more to fly AIR next time :)

why would you ever fly jetstar...... the company has a policy to delay or cancel flights that are not more than 65% full...... and only tell the costumers the night before or via an email with in 4 hours of the flight leaving..... they use mechanical fault and/or lack of availability of key flight personal to cover for their 65% full cancellation of flight policy.
I have personally been caught out 3 times in 18 months with this.

The last AIR flight for the day CHCH to AKL was a lot earlier and would have significantly reduced our time to mix and mingle with fellow Share trader members at the meeting. As I suggested, I'd prefer to fly AIR and in hindsight would have been happy to pay for overnight accommodation to have had a more fulsome opportunity to catch up with fellow sharetraders and fly a proper airline.
Jetstar's planes are old, the seat configuration is exceptionally tight and Forest and I both agreed you get what you pay for which in Jetstar's case is not a lot.

Didnt know that--Im flying down to Qtown and back with them (hopefully being popular route Ill be ok) I can put up with any seat for a couple hours and one (of the few?) advantages is that they allow 10kg for carry on.
