Sunday morning came with an endless stream of MegaDoers headed toward DIA with the dawn patrol of flyers taking flight starting at 5 a.m. (some of them were sighted at the bar just hours earlier as Saturday became Sunday). For those with moe realistic and reasonable itineraries, there was one final organized event — another Colorado Rockies baseball game hosted by the Jason Dahl Scholarship Fund. Interesting that many of those attending the baseball game were from the Canadian contingent on MilePoint. Sure, the eyes were watching the game, but after a week of events, the side conversations were still all about the miles and points. Among those enjoying the game — newly engaged aboard the MegaDo3 Charter flight, Waterside and Waterstrider.
Now, the back story. Seems that back in July at a friend’s wedding after a healthy round and rounds of toasts for the new bride and groom, Waterstrider made a one-off comment that maybe her and WAterski get engaged at the SMD3 since they fly so much. Waterski replied, “let’s not talk about that right now” and the comment was lost — owed to perhaps it was the friend’s wedding and champagne talking! But, for Warerski, that one-off, off-topic comment set a seed and on Thursday September 8, 2011, Waterski pulled off the surprise that will forever be remembered in MegaDo history. Now you know the rest of the story.
