    After losing to the Boy Scouts (yes, the Boy Scouts :eek:) the first year, Team Flyertalk is now the reigning 2 year champion and I have been “dubbed” this year's team captain but this year it will not be Team Flyertalk nor will it be Team Milepoint but TEAM FREQUENT FLYER!

    What we need are 20-25 folks who will commit to pulling the plane at the designated hour (See logistics below). For those of you who have pulled in the past, it will be a little different this year.

    I will be receiving the waiver forms in the mail and will be e-mailing them to you for you to complete and e-mail back to me at "dbolaffi at pacbell dot net" (note how I did it ;)) and please email (no pm's please as your e-mail will also be needed for the “official” team photo)

    I will also need your cell phone number as I will send a group text with a 15 minute reminder about the plane pull.

    Space is limited so act fast and for those that want to cheer on the team, you are all welcome (and cheerleader outfits and ponytails are encouraged :D)

    Let's show everyone who’s boss!
    ===
    Logistics

    I will e-mail you the waiver form for you sign and e-mail back to me (pdf or jpg) no later than noon on Sunday, October 2nd and please bring the original with you as a back up.

    Our pull time is 2:15 PM

    All team members must be at the registration desk (near the front of the pull plane -- the one with the long rope attached to her nose gear ;)) no later than 2PM to make sure that your registration form has been submitted* and that you are on the list.

    *I will be submitting all the forms which have been e-mailed back to me but again, please bring your hard copy "just in case"

    It was put in this thread as a single post opposed to a separate thread but it now looks like it's full :(

    Please send me an e-mail to my address listed in the first post (and note that i "spelled it out" ;)) and the a/c in the past has been a A320

    Well, I'm not sure if I'm coming, since I haven't heard anything from united yet, but I did send a PM prior to the post being updated, but I'll be up for 1 guest pulling, and 1 guest cheerleading!

    I'll send you an email once I hear from united, hopefully tomorrow!

    I'm waiting to hear back, and if I do get in, debating about doing this, since I'm going to the launch party in LA that night. It was fun pulling the plane last year though

    Doing both is not the problem, its getting to LA early enough for the party, as I do not want to try and arrive in LA at 5

    I was wondering that myself since the pull is at 2:15PM ...there's no realistic way you'd get the pull done and clear SFO security and board a flight for LA and arrive before 5PM.

    Make sure they fit the CO RAH RAH!

    Yeah, that is what makes it hard, since I want to actually have some time to change clothes before the party (not a good idea to come to a AA party in a UA shirt ;) )

    And I keep telling you, its UA Rah Rah now

    A housekeeping issue....

    For those that have already sent me an e-mail, could you resend it but let me know if you have been "officially invited". It was my bad in not stating that up front as it would "not be a good thing" to have you pull the plane if you didn't get an invite to the event :eek:

    Thanks

    For those of you "heading to points south" later on Saturday, I can add that in the past, the pull time has not started "promptly" and throwing in the logistics of getting back to the terminals, there are only three ways to do it......walk, have someone drive you or take the UA employee shuttle and with the first being highly unadvisable ;) if you do not have someone driving you right after the pull and team photo (I don't know which comes first), you're going to need to allow roughly 30 minutes if taking the employee shuttle (it may come sooner but...) so with that, I'd like to ask that if you think you will be cutting it close, to "volunteer" to put yourself on the "PPU" (Plane Pull Upgrade) list so that others who will be attending "thru the duration" don't miss out on a spot on the pull team.

    Thanks
