    Folks,

    It's hereby confirmed! The oneworld Mega DO (OWMD) is happening in the week of January 23rd!

    The oneworld Mega DO team (tommy777, Pizzaman, Firefly and Gleff) and our sponsors American Airlines, milepoint and Hyatt are inviting everyone to participate in our super-terrific oneworld Mega DO launch party!

    When? October 9th from 6PM till late

    Where? Andaz West Hollywood, Los Angeles

    Who? Maya Liebman, President of AAdvantage. Jeff Zidell, head of Hyatt Gold Passport, Randy Petersen, Pizzaman, Firefly and yours truly. And of course YOU!

    What? Be the FIRST to see the exciting OW program and secure your spot! Drinks and food will be provided.

    The LIST (here's the current list of those confirmed for the launch party)

    The facts

    - The first 75 persons to RSVP will gain access to this very exclusive launch party

    - No, you don't have to sign up for the oneworld Mega DO to attend the launch party

    - No, there will be no discounted flights, double EQMs, swags etc for the launch party.

    - There will be a room block provided at the Andaz for Friday to Monday for everyone who doesn't ask when it will be available via Conversation or email.

    - We are spending a lot of resources building our new website and database @ www.megado.com. You will be able to reserve your spot for the DO at the event. There will be NO deposits, only flat out sales of spots. So save the dates of January 2012 week of the 23rd if you plan to attend

    - All facts will be available at the launch party

    - You can follow the launch party via the blog on megado.com

    - We will have ONLY 160 seats available on the OW mega DO (161 were available for the SMD3 which was sold out 2 months before the event). First come first served.

    - How to RSVP for the launch party: Send me an email to secure your spot. The first 75 that RSVPs to my email, will get a spot. tommy@milepoint.com. Send me your milepoint handle, full name and OW status (not FF#, just status level)

    I emailed about ten minutes ago, so I'm not first. I hope we get prizes for responding quickly.

    You stated in the other thread that the launch party would handle anyone who came. Now you say it is space available. What happens now if people bought and just show up?

    Email sent. Now hopefully UA announces their fleet week so I can book flights to cover both of those.

    I sent in my RSVP e-mail. Looking forward to seeing what the dAArk side has to offer-- and, of course, to seeing Tommy again after a 4- week post Star Mega Do detox.

    Email sent!

    And, I echo Tenmoc's comments. Hopefully those that indicated they'd already bough tickets will be "grandfathered" if they RSVP after 75.

    I'm in!

    I have to admit thought, I'm confused on the wording here:

    So if I am reading this correctly, you can reserve your spot for the DO during the launch party if you like, and will have to pay the entire fee up front that day? If so, will there be a price listed prior to the launch party?

    Not sure why I am getting my RSVP e-mails to tommy@milepoint.com bounced back. I had already booked travel to LAX for the launch. Can you advise? Thanks.

    I'm guessing you've received a response to your RSVP request which others haven't, which may account for some of the confusion.

    Yeah, I'm starting to wonder if people who haven't received a response to their RSVP email should start to worry. I'm reluctant to contact tommy777 because he must get an enormous number of MP related email and conversations. Plus, organizing all of this is an tremendous amount of work, so we shouldn't harass him unless absolutely necessary.

    Yeah I'm not going to stress about it. If I end up with a spot that's great, if not I'll live. It must take a lot of effort to plan this. I'm sure a few MPers would be willing to volunteer with the organization and administration of it all if it would help. I certainly would volunteer, whether I had a spot or not.

    I got a response from my RSVP, but I asked if I made it. There wasn't any other details. I'm assuming everyone RSVPing at this time will get in, and if something changes i'm sure he'll let us know. :)
