This is just so kool! I have always wanted to do something like this and I will be on Friday May 1st after the Freddie’s in Atlanta. You, and a friend, can join us and a bunch of Delta folks.

miles to memories pull a delta 757

Normally I am not a fan of spending my SkyMiles on anything but flying, but in this case I will make an exception because the cause is really great, the event is so neat, and with not all that many bidding, and the bidding ending tomorrow, Monday 2PM ET on all 9 of the auctions, you should be able to get in for a very reasonable amount of points!

You will get: “A spot for you and one (1) guest to compete as part of a team of 20 in the Delta Jet Drag at the Delta Technical Operations Center on Friday, May 1st between 9:00am and 10:00am”

This will sure be a fun start to the day before the Delta Points reader dinner later on the same day 1 MAY 2015.

Lastly, if you cannot make it to Atlanta and take part in the 757 pull then I have a reader who is supporting a young one with brain cancer. Here is the link for more info. Thank you in advance!

I lost my aunt to cancer and I miss her so much. She was one of the kindest people I have ever known. Making a difference, even a small one, matters! – René

  1. Are you in on this Rene? I’m in town on the 1st for the meet up and would love to do this as well. Shame we couldn’t do a DeltaPoints team? I’m bidding now. Good cause and good people.

    OK everyone coming to the meet up and dinner place a bid and join the team!

    Rene can you get them to reschedule? 🙂 Unfortunately I will be dragging my rear end through my final EAT run that day after a few earlier that week. Have fun!

    • @TexasYankee – I will ask them to reschedule Freddie’s adn the event. My guess is they will say no 😉

  3. If I win one I guess I’ll be looking for a partner since it’s for 2 people! I think it sounds awesome!

    • @CarolK – I think we can find someone! 🙂 Thanks for the support of a great cause.

  4. Same as CarolK I just noticed it’s a +1 thing. Do you want to check with the mothership and make sure we are still +1 or did that get pulled with the other upgrades? I’m kidding… I think.

    • @Graydon – Yes +1 thing. I think we can find some folks to join us 🙂

  5. I won my bid! Work isn’t happy that I’ll be missing for a couple days, but our HR person thinks it’s cool. I’ll know in a couple hours if somebody I know is going to go with me, as the rules say they have to have the complete names etc, tomorrow. Either way, I’m going. Sounds like an all day event, but at least I’ll be in Atlanta for dinner that night LOL.

    • @CarolK – SWEET! I am bidding and Graydon is too. I have my +1 spoken for but do you or Graydon, if he wins too, need someone? We may want to take this to the PVT dinner post BTW.

    Rene – Did you win one of these? I did! I want to join the DeltaPoints team!

    • @JoeM – I have 8 MIN to go. Will advise. We have at least 2 others who won too! We will be on the same team it looks like.

  7. Won mine! So it looks like for once I will be the one yanking Delta around (and not vice versa). Looking forward to it, going to be a blast that day!

  9. I’m curious, what was the average SkyMiles rate that sold for this event?
