Dont you dare say 50-50. We'll get a van and abduct you if we must. You are a cool dude and will be missed if you're not there.



oh, well, I didn't know I was being held in such high esteem, so change that to 55-45 for now and I'll see what I can do. I'll see that there is a Craps Challenge if we can get our own table [if you get that accomplished I'd be 60-40]

OneNickelMiracle and I are dually organizing the WoVCon East III event to be held the weekend of Saturday April 29th, 2017, to take place on that Saturday, or on Sunday April 30th, 2017.

Fleastiff regrets being unable to attend. Even if I had a free airline ticket and a comped room, it appears it would futile for me to plan on attending when its clear I will have no gambling budget.

I've been ignoring this thread because it's unlikely that I will attend. But I've been thinking about it, and maybe I will be there. It's a 6-7 hour drive for me from NE New Jersey, so I don't know...

At any rate, just a couple thoughts.

Since there seems to be no consensus on which day to do it, why not just do it both days? For example, have an informal get together for lunch on Saturday, then some group gambling, but that formal festivities start with dinner on Saturday. Getting a craps table together with lower minimums on Sunday morning should be very easy. Then end the event after lunch Sunday, as people individually trickle out.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Great idea, DJTeddyBear, we should plan for exactly that!

It's too early to 100% commit but I will follow this thread and try to attend at least 1 day. Depending on where you end up it's about a 4-5 hour drive for me.

Having had the good fortune to meet and spend an hour or two with you in the past, let me speak on behalf of all attendees and say we would be thrilled to have you there if it is in any way possible!

UPDATE:

Just to let everyone know, I am going to be sending out some PM's either tomorrow or the next day so we can get the ball rolling on this thing. If everyone wants to do a two-day sort of thing, then I would be fine with that with each day taking place at a different venue.

Depending on my ex-wife's work schedule, I may or may not be able to do all day Saturday (Rivers) but would be there for just a little bit. If the Sunday is at Wheeling Island, then I would be there all day.

I'm going to be sending PM's to everyone who has attended a previous WoV East event or has replied in this thread, or replied in one of those threads. Anyone else is welcome, of course.

We need to start getting more specific plans in place now, though.

I'm closing this thread because the eleven votes were not openly posted by the Members, anyway, and I also think we were really too far away from the date to be picking specific venues, although, I do like planning it for two different days.

I'm creating a new thread and sending PM's out about this now.

So, we are definitely going to do two days, 4/29/17 and 4/30/17, but I want to redo voting on the casinos and maybe even throw out a few additional options.
