***Vegas Meet-up -- July 3-6***

Vegas Get Together 2008

July 3-6, 2008

Each of the past 2 years, members of the SSNL and uNL forums have gotten together in Vegas over the opening weekend of the WSOP ME. This year, we would like to invite all the strategy forums to join us. In years past we have arranged for a dinner followed by playing poker at private tables in a well known poker room on the strip.

This year’s agenda will include dinner and poker for one evening (more evenings will be added depending on number of attendees and interest) along with a few other opportunities for 2+2ers to socialize together.

Dinner and cards will be on Thursday night July 3, 2008 at a restaurant and card room on/near the Strip that will be announced once we have an idea of the approximate number of attendees. If you are interested in attending please RSVP.

As for other events, the plan is to match up 2+2ers who express interest in each activity. SSNL has found in the past that groups of 6-8 seem to work best, so this year we are asking that you include a list of activities that interest you and you will be paired up with other 2+2ers with a similar interest to coordinate the activity. For things like golf or Grand Canyon tours, we will try to provide you with additional information to help you coordinate this.

Here is a list of POTENTIAL other activities. Whether they happen or not is entirely dependent upon interest. If there is another activity that you would like to propose just send me a PM.

Golf (Win monies on prop bets with tuq)
Night Clubs (Bottle Service at the hottest spots. You never know who might show up.)
Hanging out at the pool (For those who are awake during daylight hours)
Grand Canyon helicopter tour (Perfect for those bringing spouses/significant others)
Las Vegas Gun Range (Shooting machine guns is fun!)

Okay, so it’s 5 months away, why are we bothering you now? Well, it will take some time to get this organized. Last year some folks from Europe rented a house for a month or so. The early notice is to give everyone enough time to make plans. Right now, if you are genuinely interested in attending please RSVP to Emc or me. As we get closer and need a firm headcount, you be contacted to confirm.

Questions? Just shoot me a PM and I’ll do my best to answer them. This notice will be updated as we get closer to the event.

DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL 2+2 PUBLISHING EVENT AND 2+2 PUBLISHING DOES NOT ENDORSE NOR IS IT AFFILIATED WITH ANY OF THESE ACTIVITES.

Last year, a bunch of UK guys rented a house for a month (it wasn't that expensive). I am sure it will happen again this year.

Well,

Last year I went, it cost overall like 1800ish for a week and I stayed at a house. YMMV cause I really didnt play a lot of poker.

For the budget conscious, find a roommate and stay at one of the lesser properties. You should be able to find something fro $300 (or less) a week. Airfare is what it is and food is as cheap or expensive as you want it to be. I'd say if you are just trying to do the long weekend (3 nights) with a roommate, you could probably get by on $500 (not including airfare) plus whatever your gambling budget is.

Ed (or any one else) feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

There are two $1500 WSOP bracelet events that start on June 28 and June 30 respectively. If I start playing in earnest online, I might enter the June 30 one.

Are there any pet (dog) friendly hotels/places to stay in Vegas? What about significant others?

I've never been to the WSOP(tho I was in town when it was going on last year- busto obv) and poker is better than ever for me right now so count me in! I live in L.A. so this is ez. What were the prices of the gun range? Do they have AK-47s and AR-15s etc.?

No idea about pet friendly, though I'd be shocked if you couldn't find something. Several guys have already mentioned bringing girl friends.

Re: ***Vegas Meet-up -- July 3-6***

The reason why I asked about the pets is that last summer we tried to plan a trip and from the limited research that I had done I was only able to find one small hotel not on the strip that accepted animals. All the major hotels were off limits.

Re: ***Vegas Meet-up -- July 3-6***

My 5 1/2 years of university end at the end of June, this would be one hell of a way to celebrate/act as a launch pad for some traveling of Europe. Just need the money... Sunday Million here I come?

If I magically get robusto I'm there.
