PPRuNe Combine PPRuNe Combine

I'm bringing forward the issue of this NOTAM as further pre-match Comms, Sourcing and Logistical Planning maybe necessary for some operational personnel.

The Match coincides with Mother's Day So as to ensure uninterupted viewing it is highly recommended that adequate planning is undertaken to ensure visits, flowers, cards, telephone calls, lunches etc. are all executed well before 1430 Hrs this coming Sunday. Special attention is advisable for those who have offspring at University and who are not returning home for the weekend by ensuring said offspring make an effort to contact their Mother's (All forms of Social Media Messaging and Texting are considered inappropriate for such purposes).

If there are any Aircrew possessing tickets for uniformed attendance, as with the last Twickenham Match, in the event they may appear on TV, a discrete signal may be appropriate to acknowledge PPRuNe solidarity. Solidarity in this context will mean "nice one chaps glad you're drinking for us while we are on duty" .

Some of us in foreign parts have to watch the game a day or two later.

May I ask that any threads post-match be titled 'England Game' or similar, rather than something which gives the result away!

...unlike last time...

Thank you .............. never mind Italy, what about the , er, other lot, the week after?

[Thinks ......... is the England vs NZ cricket an OMEN?]

I think I might arrange an alternative activity for the other lot game, otherwise the oaths and the shrill cries from erindoors [she is the big rugger fan] will be too much to bear. And she's so demanding on Stella stocks too.

F3 ...

Wilco ... We will use this OSB Thread as the Primary Comms Stud both pre and during the Match for usual banter etc. Would recommend that you guard against inadvertent selection of this Stud on Sunday +24/48 Hrs as appropriate

Another good reason to issue the NOTAM early ... Operational Comms now sorted

F3. Get a VPN. Strongvpn.com works a treat and bypasses any gates that may be set up by host countries.

Good luck!

Tunnel Bear to Live BBC TV or to FilmOn is the way to do it, very cheap ($50 /yr) and very easy

C'mon Wales, Ireland and of course, Italy.
