That's different to what you put on the other thread mate?

There appears to be a move towards no 'pre meet up' or warm up meeting. TBH this might be the way forward. The ones that are there for a week or two meet up several times on different occasions anyway.

i was trying to work around the mon 1st date,which i thought was set in stone.

the sat 29th would suit me much better,we could fly out sat morning,do the meet up,die all day sun,fly home monday

only need to book one day off work

i usually work weekends also,so i will be losing money.

but i prefer that to using up our valuable works holidays,people "on the books"don't get many,jan gets 20,i average 25.

don't know about jan's case beech,but i'm a lifelong union member and our rates,hours,holidays have been thrashed out over the years.

i work on what are called "blue book" jobs ie best hourly rates ect,so i'm not going to earn more or get better holidays any where in the uk.

i have to sign a yearly "opt out" form which enables me to work very long hours

i'm currently working a 13 day fortnight,every other sunday off.these 13 days being 10 hour shifts.

not much fun beech,but must make hay while the sun shines Rolling Eyes

Looked at cost of flights for dates either side of last weekend in Sept 2012 as that is probably going to be when it happens.Looks like my £75 return this year is a pipedream.EasyJet have flights up for Sept but still waiting for price for return in Oct.Ryanair LPL-PMI-LPL £150 before baggage and other (endless) charges but good flight times.EZY no good for me anyway as outbound flight is 0600.Jet2 from Manc also early morning flight but cheaper than Ryanair.I may just leave it for a few months and see if the prices of flights comes down (the flight times aren't going to change).

Have also looked at cost of digs on Travel Republic.Their Sale does not start until end December.Sol Mirlos 5 nights AI single occupancy of double room £306.I reckon in their sale this will come down to £260.I paid £215 this year for same.Thomson are doing a 7 nights HB package at Hotel Son Matias for £594 each of 2.I daresay they will have a sale too in January so I will hold off.

WS seeing how cheap it is for drinks and food is it not worth your while just doing B&B / H/B etc and drinking out. or even S/C Saboners was really cheap this year I could have had it for under £70 for me and Debbie, we paid £104 B/B at the Samos just wanted to try somewhere we hadnt been before. You spend alot of time on the road and out and about so is it really worth the A/I price

I am amazed that so many of you can commit to a period of time 12 months in advance
I wish I had the ability to know what I will be doing in 12 weeks time.
The only dates I can commit to is the Donkey Groomers birthday 24th August, wedding anniversary 3rd November
and Christmas towards the end of December.
Childrens Birthdays in February, March, May and June unknown dates despite having been at the births,
Granchildrens 5 of, total mystery except it seems to be whenever we spend time together

True Dads, nobody knows what in store for them

but for the forum, all you can do, is to set a date and those that can make it.. do.

There is no way that I am committing to flights at the moment but those that want to for the 'cheaper' offers, they will have a date soon

Well routine Im afraid ,nothing really exciting happens to us lol and we have been doing it for many years now. I love the biginning of October in Maga, a bit of last minute warmth before the winter hits us in the UK. And we always like to get the flights as cheap as we can so first come first served. I rely on Graham to let me know hehehe

Thanks for the suggestions everybody especially Daryn.The dynamic is different for a solo traveller than a couple.Eating even breakfast alone is OK in a busy hotel restaurant.Eating breakfast alone in a S/C apartment is soulless.Even having dinner alone in Sol Mirlos was a social experience and not just because of the other MF delegates staying there.There were non MF guests who passed the time of day with me and when I wasn't on tinternet there were bar lounge lizards to chat with.I don't have two heads or leprosy and will happily get in conversation with anyone! Wink

The cost is immaterial to me.That sounds glib I know but really for less than £50 a night I had a double bedroom to myself,en-suite and balcony,all food I could possibly eat and as much drink as I wanted from 10am to Midnight.Hotel entertainment too if I wanted it-the stage shows not the people-watching! Even if I wanted it I couldn't get an apartment and all that food and drink for much less.

The accommodation isn't the problem as there is an infinite choice at all price/quality levels.If I went with Mrs WS I would go upmarket,Son Matias not La Residencia affraid nor even more realistically Bon Sol or Riu Bonanza in Illetas.

It's the cost and availability of suitable flights (ie not departing at daft o'clock which nearly all of them for 2012 are scheduled to do) that is more of a problem.

Looking at the plans already discussed by other delegates for 2012 there are going to be more short-hoppers than this year ergo there won't be so many dining-out in groups opportunities either side of the meet.
