AC Trip Advisor Drunkfest...I mean MEETING

Hi everyone,

So, the seed was planted when we started discussing the cheap airfare to Vegas & while that's wonderful I don't think we should stray from our mother ship--especially when we have people like JMP who would be subject to divorce on a junket to Vegas! While people like me & Ambrva are free spirits, I think we should all try now, if we can to pick a date/weekend/ that works best for us so we can get as many of us as possible together for our drunkfest/er, meeting........

Anybody want to throw out some dates?? I figured since Term comes from the farthest, he might want to have some earlier input.

We have reservations for the 28th of May , But almost any weekend is OK as we are only an hour and a half away .

I have the 26th to the 28th of May reserved too. But that's a holiday weekend and might be tough for people to get rooms.

I'll also be there April 26th, and I have reservations (maybe going maybe not) May 4-6.

I'm pretty flexible tho. As long as I can get rooms I can pretty much go any time.

I can get there in 90 minutes so I can go whenever. My calendar frees up around mid-April, I think (Megan probably signed me up for something, tho).

Since everyone seems so flexible so far, I'm going to throw out a date - April 20th. (Mostly because I have rooms that weekend.) I'm staying at Caesars. Does that work for anyone?

Ambrva.. I think I could squirrel away for a weekend. Is the idea to have the meeting on Saturday or Sunday, a la, an actual weekend day? Personally speaking, that would be much better for me, due to potential problems getting days off from work.

BTW: I don't believe there are any problems date-wise for me, at least not until July.

I really hope this happens, as I would love to meet all of you! <big grin>

I was thinking a weekend would be best, as that would probably be the most convenient for most people. But then I thought weekend (Saturday night) rooms might be problematic for some people.

I was kind of thinking about a rolling event. A Friday night meet and then another one on Saturday. That way the people that couldn't meet on a particular night could meet with some of the others, and at least the ones that were able to stay both days would be able to tell crazy drunken stories about the most possible people. ;-)

So my thoughts (and it doesn't have to be this weekend or these times - just an example/the first hard date suggestion) would be something like:

Meet up somewhere Friday the 20th at 9pm.

Meet up somewhere Saturday the 21st at 7pm, maybe for dinner?

Ambrva... What you proposed sounds terrific, and I do think that would accomodate most everyone's schedule.

As an aside, going in April or May has the advantage of non-summer hotel room prices for those who will have to more than likely pay (such as me, perhaps). Weekends are never cheap, but those summer prices... OUCH!

Hopefully we can make this happen... if we actually use April 20, that is only a month from now! lol

That sounds like a good idea. Maybe also something earlier on Saturday for day-trippers, like myself? Maybe walking the boards or a VP 'tournament' followed by a round of drinks and appetizers in lieu of a real lunch?

jmp... I like that idea, too.... Let's let some others chime in with their preferences.

I am flexible with the *what* we do part, just not so much with the *when* part. Friday night or Saturday anytime would really be best for me. Like Terminator, I have a long drive to and from home. Unlike Terminator, I don't have the luxury of extended time off (if any) from work.

Like I said, hopefully others (ACMama, moneywho, Terminator, maryL31, harlemgirl, Dopplerbob, jerrynj, tubman, Gevurah, cate58, roger, CasinoSlotQueen, Frank, bobandjodi, etc.) will chime in and we can agree on something pretty quick. Have to try and get reservations! lol
