    Its about that time of year again.... Should we do a get-together before everyone goes on holidays?

    If so, what dates do you have in mind?

    Great idea GHT -- I may be in Toronto so may be able to attend ... as for dates ... hard to say - but I would try to make whatever date you choose.

    I think the sooner in the month the better as venues often fill up soon. I know having setup a couple of previous do's when I care more :p (seriosly - first or 2nd week at the latest I would think)

    Fly back early afternoon on the 8th from EWR to YTZ on Porter so if it's downtown could make it on Wednesday, or on Thursday if it's our usual day of the week. Around the following week too.

    I'll like to join the YYZ DO if doobies are allowed. :)

    I will be in Asia from Dec 2 to Dec 19. Anytime outside those 2 weeks is good for me!

    Here are some preliminary results (based on number of people that CANNOT make it)

    Thursday 8th Dec - 5 people
    Friday 9th Dec - 6 people
    Monday 12th Dec - 4.5 people
    Tuesday 13th Dec - 4.5 people
    Thursday 15th Dec - 5 people
    Friday 16th Dec - 5 people
    Monday 19th Dec - 3.5 people
    Tuesday 20th Dec - 2.5 people

    Non preferable date is given a 0.5 point.

    Long story short, 20th looks like the best, followed by 19th or 12-13th.

    Realistically, I can't do anything until 15th or later -- gotta do another milk run to NRT yet. :(

    I am 50-50 about being in Toronto on Dec 16 (maybe even 15th if I can my work done).

    g_h_t, hope your e-upgrades appear for your return flight. Never met up with you in NYC, maybe next time (though if you are going to be in nYc on the 2nd, sadly I will be in Hawaii for my b-day -- sad that we will not meet up, not that I will be in HI! :D)

    i am tempted to say that "based on the data" 20th Dec seems the best.

    I see a trend going, a group travelling and coming home around 15+ Dec onwards and another group travelling out mid month....... But the former > than the latter.

    Is everyone okay if we do a pre-Xmas DO on 20th Dec? Perhaps some little festivities at the pub?

    I would likely make it then. If you call now you may be able to reserve the front area of the jersey giant on front.

    Tee Hee... I can make it on Dec 20... BUT I will likely be a zombie... LOL! Coming back to YYZ on Dec 19th... Maybe going to the DO will help keep me awake so I can get over my jetlag faster! ;)

    Where is this Jersey Giant?
