Meeting's Memo #1 (Mon 15/9/08)

Post  Michelle on Mon Sep 15, 2008 12:53 pm

1. Flight (20/11/08 )

There are some of us who are taking Jetstar FLight from Melbourne to Osaka (through GOld COast) on 20/11/08. The flight will depart at 6.00 and will arrive in Osaka (Kansai airport) at around 18.40. This flight is still on offer and will end on 11/09/08.

Flight number: JQ430


2. Accommodation in Osaka (20/11/08 - 21/11/08 )

Since no one wants to take a midnight train from Osaka to Kanazawa (which will arrive at K. at 3 in the MORNING), we have decided to stay overnight in Osaka and take the next morning's train to Kanazawa instead (i.e, will arrive at Kanazawa on 21/11/08). We will be meeting (and / or) staying in the following hotel.

Suggested Hotel: Toyo Hotel
more info >>> http://www.hotel-toyo.jp/index.html

Reasons: Cheap + convinient + looks like it's EASY enough to find =D!
Price : about $15 per night and futon provided (?)and gawd, HEATER!
Style : Japanese style room with tatami mat and shared bathroom etc etc (read on the website XP)

3. Train to Kanazawa from Osaka (21/11/08 )

**to be updated**

(i lost the link of the train's timetable, if anyone still can recall the time for that express train, please email me? ^^;..)

4. Accommodation in Kanazawa (21/11/08 - 22/11/08 )

**still to come**
(suggestions will be greatly WELCOMED in the next meeting =D!)


That's it. LoL, although it wasn't much being discussed in the meeting, but at least we had a starting point =)!



The next meeting will be:

MONDAY 22/09/08 at 11am,
Study area at 4th floor Menzies Building


Things yet to be discussed in next meeting:
1. Meeting point at Kansai International Airport (Osaka)
2. Transport from Kansai to Osaka (bus/ train)
3. Accommodation in Kanazawa (21/11/08 - 22/11/08 )

etc etc.

MEMO #2!

Post  Jacinda on Mon Sep 15, 2008 2:22 pm

I know it's been done already and people don't need TWO messages. But
here's another run down - more of a to do list since everyone had fun
yay!

==PEOPLE WHO ATTENDED THE MEETING==
Jacinda, Michelle, Laura, Steph, Nate, Joanne, Jonno, Mel & Charge

-- FLIGHT ROUNDUP PART II --

Jetstar Flight on the 20th arriving 6:40 pm (JQ430)
People on that flight:
- Jonno, Mel, Charge, Michelle
* Staying overnight in Kanazawa (?)

Flight to Osaka arriving 22nd 8AM
- Joanne (making her own way there? - make sure you got it smoothed out!)

Flight to Tokyo arriving 19th going to Kanazawa at 22nd 8am (?)
- Jacinda yay!

PEOPLE WHO WENT TO THE MEETING & ARE NOT ON FLIGHTS BUT SHOULD BE
- Laura, Nate, Steph
(Sorry to be mother hen about this but seriously, do it ASAP. Though I
know Laura checked out STA?)


-- CONTACTING DURING THE TRIP --

* The best idea is to confirm our hotel arrangements before the trip (a
good week's advance). This will solve contacting WITHOUT a phone - when
we get one, we can go email crazy. HOWEVER...

The group on the Jetstar flight (from now on known as TEAM OSAKA JETSTAR.
Hee.) should nominate a leader of sorts. This should make sure you guys
know WHERE to go and WHAT TIME to wake up and so forth. All the way down
to the OCD habit of drawing practice route maps and runners. You think
getting to the airport was worth getting a pat on the back, it's less
funny when you're stranded in Kagoshima. If you guys think you can all
manage this cooperatively, you need to at least someone who carries the
shit (the one with the lightest bag?)

-- MAKING A CONTACT SPREADSHEET --

During the meeting we talked about exchanging details. We already have
this email, but it'll be useful closer to the date to get ahold of mobile
numbers and msn/facebook thingamajigies for us to talk. We shared our
mobile numbers (
http://monashkanazawaprog08.forumotion.net/misc-stuff-and-things-that-don-f-fit-elsewhere-including-spam-f4/mobile-number-t13.htm
) but later this month or next month I want to start compiling this as a
printout we can keep before we leave.

-- THINGS TO ARRANGE --

* A packing checklist, as a guide
* Passport - DO IT NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW. AUSTRALIA POST DOES
PASSPORT INTERVIEWS. IF YOU NEED A FORM GET IT FROM THE POST OFFICE. IF
YOU NEED GUARANTORS, WE'LL DO IT.
* Enrolment Amendment Form
* Travel Insurance! - (a handy website
http://travelinsurancedirect.com.au )

-- PRE-DEPARTURE NIGHT --
25th Thursday September
Dinner + Karaoke
Restaurant suggestions?

* Also a Pre-pre-departure orientation *
Pizza & drinks at a pre-decided venue before the pre-departure
orientation (11/11/08). Go over fine details and have fun?

-- Things also to discuss
* The Ishikawa Foundation itself - maps, and orientation. People bring
their own guides and highlight things they want to do and maybe we can
set it aside for later
* Exchanging details
* People's flights
* Maybe another meetup in the afternoon? 1pm?
