    Hi, everyone! It's been a while since we've posted, but we've been working behind the scenes to plan the 2017 events for all of you after ending the year with a bang in GUM + Island Hopper. So, with that, we are now announcing our first event of the year - IAH on Saturday, May 20. We have not had an event in this hub city in years and thought it would be a good time to return for an afternoon at the airport, specifically United's Inflight Training Center! Limited to 25 guests, you'll want to register soon.

    This fun event starts at 10am and ends around 4pm and includes the following:
    1) A tour of the training facility
    2) A tutorial on emergency procedures during flight
    3) Participate in a mock evacuation -> including an opportunity to slide down an emergency slide!
    4) Q&A session with UA executives
    5) Three course lunch and charity auction afterwards at Tommy Bahama in the Woodlands. Non alcoholic beverages are included.

    The price for this event is $100pp, which includes a $50 donation to United WeCare via Frequent Flyer Giving.

    Please note: you are responsible for getting yourself to IAH Airport and to the lunch after. Parking/transportation to the In Flight Training facility TBD. Suggest posting in this thread or private messaging other attendees to ask about carpooling.

    My first gig with the new band is the night before so I don't think there's any way I can go. :-(

    Steve Gadd's a heck of a drummer though. Maybe he's a UA 1k.

    If you're actually Steve Gadd, then please go so you can sign me a drumhead.

    He certainly is pretty fantastic...i am a drummer and my old band played 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover & Late in the Evening so I got to channel him a bit. I'd be happy to sign a drum head but I don't think my signature is really worth anything :)

    If this involves actually working.....count me out :D. I don't even work when I can get paid for it. I would love to join in whatever fun you have planned.

    Shockingly enough, fares were reasonable out of CLT so I'm booked. :cool:

    I still see the rate, but only for a two night stay. It doesn't appear for 5/19 through 5/20 only.
