    Okay, it’s that time of year again. After having some discussion with a few other POA’ers, we have decided to propose December 15th as the date for our annual meetup at the Runway Café (KGMU). If that date is a wash, the rain date will be the 22nd. If the weekend of the 8th seems to be a better choice amongst everyone, than we can change to that.

    It will be a repeat of last years meetup, which we were all lucky enough to have perfect weather for.

    Tentatively: Meet at The Runway Café @ 12p for lunch and then go outside and ogle each other’s planes.

    @eman1200, hit us with your list of POA’ers.

    Not sure if I can be there - still in FO training/sims and don’t know what my Dec. schedule will be.

    :(

    here's my theory, based on the results of this test:

    @midlifeflyer
    @Radar Contact
    @Bill Jennings
    @Ronbonjovi

    I'm thinking the guys with one word screennames get notified, and people with weird 2 word names don't, but that's just a theory. so in the above test, mark and ronbon will get notified but kevin and bill won't.

    hhmmmff, well then I dunno. figure I'll just keep pasting the list and hope xenforo does what it's supposed to do. doesn't sound like there's much I can do. when I paste the names, they all turn blue as if they're links, so, fk it.

    The 15th won't work for me. We're doing a Christmas party that evening and I typically spend the day baking and cooking for it.

    Either of the other dates should work.

    I'm in, pending weather and all those other things.

    I was not notified. Should I take that as a hint? ;-)

    I'm planning to go and could take a couple more if they can walk, drive, Uber, or whatever to KCVC.

    I can't make it the 22nd. Really would like to get to this one. I don't think I have any issues with the 8/15th but taking a few minutes to check that out and then will vote.

    I did get the alert at the top of the screen from being tagged. I don't have email notifications turned on though.

    Have the plane, hopefully the new engine is hung and sorted out by then. If not, Ryan can fly me over again!
