    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......

    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.
    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!

    Shrewdly is otherwise disposed I believe, and I'll put in my apologies as well as I have to finish off month end stuff. Have a good evening.

    Default Thanks Percey

    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

    Was a great catch up and good to meet some new people as I hadn't gone in a while. All a very smart bunch of people.

    Thanks for organising this Percy and Nextbigthing for getting the topic going.

    Would have been easy for me, I could have just stayed in my work clothes and gumboots.

    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.
