Subic contacts

A number of us in the Davao City chapter have already booked our flights for the National Convention in Subic on March 2-5. I am sure many have also done so throughout the country as Cebu Pacific offered seat sales last week.

We are happy to note that the organizers are fielding free buses for the participants at the NAIA for those arriving from the provinces. This was announced to us by our Mindanao VP Jerry Guiang last Saturday.

Those who wish to get in touch with the organizers or ask help for hotel reservations can contact the following:

Martin Misa, Subic Bay chapter – 0928-501-8604

Dickson Foo, Subic Metropolitican chapter – 0908-789-8418

Sallie dela Cruz, National Secretariat – 0919-400-1003

Preparing for Subic

During last Saturday’s fellowship, we were informed by VP for Mindanao Gerry Guiang that he recently received the registration and solicitation forms for the forthcoming national convention in Subic on March 3-5, 2011.

Very soon we would be busy preparing for this convention. We will miss though the early bird discounted registration fee of only P2,700 as the deadline was set on Wednesday, December 15. Thereafter the registration is set at P3,000 which covers the meals and kits, and excluding hotel rooms. The latter would be for our own personal account.

I checked the national convention website and there was no recent entry. I am sure many are interested in the preparations for this annual conclave but information is wanting.

In its forum page, I started posting suggestions hoping to start any conversation.

One of the suggestions I posted is the fielding of buses at the NAIA 1, 2 and 3 on March 2 and 3 to ferry those coming by plane from the provinces to Subic. I do not agree with suggestions that we charter a special flight, for instance from Davao to Clark, for this purpose with members from other chapters in southern Mindanao joining the trip. This is a good idea if airlines would agree to a one-way trip only. But I am sure many would be staying longer after the convention thus it would be difficult to fill up a return flight for this charter. After Subic, a number plans to go up to Baguio City while others have other businesses to attend to in Metro Manila.

It would help a lot if the organizers field a bus at the airport or at the Mall of Asia leaving for Subic one at noontime to ferry those arriving in Manila in the morning and another at about 5 p.m. to wait for those arriving in the afternoon.
