Yes, the Spring Fling in Las Vegas will be the weekend of 4/22, and my wife and I will be in travel status from 4/17 through 4/25. However, don't revise your plans on my account. I don't know that we would make it north of the Mason-Dixon line in May either -- my wife wants a trip to Florida that month. Maybe some day I will make it to one of the "East" gatherings, just not likely this spring.

The overwhelming response in this thread, thus far, is that the April date is either not doable or that May would be more convenient, ergo, I am going to switch it to May and PM anyone else who responded in this thread if we have not yet heard from them.

I guess I'll probably have to update the PM's, too.

Blast.

Let's vote on the weekend for May, first, and we still might do two different days and casinos:

Please select every weekend for which your probability of attending is better than 50%, and we shall go with the weekend that has the most matches:

May 13-14
May 20-21
May 27-28

Regardless of the weekend chosen, the likelihood of my attending does not change at all for Sunday. For a Saturday, it would depend on where it is and whether or not my ex-wife works that day, which is something I wouldn't really know until may, so it is what it is.

Thus, I vote for any of the above weekends.

I think so. There were probably a few who aren't following it now who might make May. Presumably May is better for me as well - except for one of those weekends a nephew is getting married.

I guess I'll probably have to update the PM's, too [how did that get in there?]

May 27-28 - my vote
May 13-14 - probably OK too, second choice


May 20-21 - cannot do

Only one I could do is 27-28. Unless the group wisely decides to relocate to the casino triumvirate of Seneca Niagara, Casino Niagara, and Fallsview. Then I'd be available pretty much any weekend.....

I think that would be impossible for OG, but if we do two days, I'd absolutely shoot up to the NY one. I'm not going to the Canada ones because I'm not getting a passport.

What are the Craps minimums like? How's the VP? Free drinks?

So the PM said Apr 29-30, but the thread has all March weekend dates... The PM also said between 2 casinos and the thread seems like an open location at this point? Can anyone give an update to where we are as of right now?

You need cliffs on a 12 post thread? Haha you type posts longer than this thread.

Basically we had an April date set up bit it looked like it was going to be a bad month so we are now voting on a weekend in April. Looks like the last weekend in april is lining up well but we dont have a location yet.

I wasn't sure which information was more up to date, the PM I received or this thread.

Voting on a weekend in April, Orly??? This is the last mention of dates in this thread:

I also at first glance took these as March dates, not May. Past that still seems like the venue is wide open then?

Mission, here are my votes. I am going to vote for the 27th weekend but any of them will work just with different plans.

May 13-14 13th is out because son has baseball game at 7pm, but Sunday is wide open.

May 20-21 we have a game at 1pm on 20th so I am good for evening and Sunday but if we go to nem or Maryland then that may be tough.

May 27-28 we have no games and no trips planned so I am wide open for any casino depending on prices to stay if it is not local to Pittsburgh.

I definitely like the idea of doing something like Nemacolin or Rocky Gap as it is something different and we could possibly even get some kind of non casino activity going. Only problem for me on both of those are the cost of hotels. NEM is super expensive and there doesn't seem to be much around there to stay. Rocky gap is 189 for that Saturday but there appear to be a few places within 20 minutes that are near or under $100.

I was just giving you a hard time. I figured you misread the may for March. But to answer your question , yes voting is for date only and no location has been agreed upon yet. I assume we will get the date and then those that are fairly confident on going can vote on location. I am sure a few will be ok with the date but then can't go to a certain location.
