    Hi, everyone! Two updates for Frequent Flyer Giving...first, we raised $930 + matching at the CLT DO for United WeCare Employee Relief Fund, so thanks to Mackieman and UA for organizing the event!

    FFG are asking for potential interest in a GUM + Island Hopper event October 24-26. The general plan would be to make your own way to HNL, where the group would hit the 5-stop ex-CO Micronesia route that leaves at 7:25am, arriving in GUM. After an arrival party/charity auction and a good night's sleep, there would be an airport tour, likely with breakfast. We're targeting around $150 cost for the ground event in GUM (including a donation to FFG) plus the cost of airfare and hotels. Optional (and extra cost) dinners in HNL is being planned. You'll have to price out your own flights to get a sense for cost. Group rate on hotel is currently still in the works.

    UA Meeting Works Discount Information: As long as your flight(s) stop or start at one or more of these cities during the dates listed, you should be eligible to use this offer code: ZWWW536956 for a discount.

    Honolulu, HI, US (HNL) - 10/20/2016 to 10/27/2016
    Guam, GU, US (GUM) - 10/22/2016 to 10/30/2016

    Fares are discounted as such:
    2% off: D / Z / P / Q / V / W / S / T / L / K / G / N
    5% off: A / C / B / M / E / U / H
    10% off: F / J / Y​

    You may book online at www.united.com and enter your Offer Code in the Offer Code box when searching for your flights.

    Note: there may also be award space as well. Currently it is only 25k for a HNL > island hopper > GUM one-way award or 35k for a US Mainland > HNL (overnight) > HNL > island hopper > GUM award. Heads up! :)

    I'm interested ...although moreso with the GUM visit than the Island Hopper.

    I did the Island Hopper years ago; it was quite the experience. Not sure if I'd invest time/ $$ to do that again, but we'll see.

    As a point of interest. I would like to point out that Nov.1 (first Tuesday) is election day and as much as I would like to attend if it overlaps I will need to bow out.:(

    I stand corrected and relieved. :) The rule of thumb has been the first Tuesday in November.:rolleyes: Just like the 'known' rules about the primaries. I'm sure that deep in the election rules and laws there some exceptions for the second Tuesday, like if the first Tuesday falls on a new moon.:D

    ETA: first Tuesday after the first Monday.

    Alright everyone, October 24 will be the date of the Island Hopper from HNL. GUM tour will be on October 26. More details will come, such as the location/cost of the group hotel, Meeting Works code, cost of the program, registration website, etc. But this should allow people to start booking flights, especially those trying to use Mileage Plus availability. You should be able to leave GUM late afternoon (suggest 5pm or later) on the 26th.
