It's a bit early still for me so I'll just start with a Zombie and go from there.

What type of snacks should I bring over?

I could probably stick the landing of an airline with help from the 'puter and ground control.
 
One thing is for sure, as the new captain I'd get on the p.a. and say "drinks are on the house friends!"

That's only in the movies. I don't think there's a chance of someone landing a heavy transport aircraft the first time cold, talking to anyone or not, imo. Look at the post above about failing in a sim the first few times. Ground control will only help you with taxi instructions once youre on the ground :).
 
 
taxiing will be really require a lot of throttle when the landing gear is sticking out the top of the wing...

That's what Valet Parking is for.

Serious question:
 
Is it frowned upon or discouraged for a casual duffer who has never raced to enter their 4KTSB to do so without any intention to seriously compete but just to have the experience of making the journey with a gaggle of people?  Does anyone do this?  Is it a horrible thing to do?  Or are they happy just to collect entry fees?

That's 90% of the fleet. Do it. Have fun. Watch out for islands.

^this!

Is it me or does it seem like Melania just doesn't want to be involved with any of this?
