Babs -

You and I were typing at the same time, so I missed your post.

Sorry you won't be there. Hope everything is ok.
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.

Did anyone post a full list of activities anywhere and is it set in stone? I have 300 in express comps leftover if we wanted to put them towards dinner at any mlife place/ also if anyone still will be in town I have an extra ufc ticket for the fight


Careful, last time someone offered Express Life comps for a WovCon there were accusations of all kind thrown about :p

I was coming out today, but something has come up (that I'm not willing to discuss here), and I'm having to postpone my LV trip for this year. Sorry to miss all of you.

Hope all is well w/BBBs. Actually hope it's a hot date (whisked off to the islands or sumptin) that could not be refused !

Medical issue. Flying is contraindicated at the moment and for a couple weeks while I straighten my chemistry out. The joy of being a middle-aged woman, though it beats the alternative. :) Thanks for all the well wishes.

Pretty much. I would dig up the thread if I had more time. Basically someone (I don't remember who, clearly a high roller) had maxed out their Express Comps (at $10K I think?) and never used them because they got everything they needed from discretionary comps. They offered to apply them to one of the group meals. The organizer of that year's WovCon assumed that no one would ever be that generous and figured it was a scam or something.

Notably, the accusation was never proved correct/incorrect. I don't believe the offering person ended up attending anyway.

The organizer was more upset that the venue they wanted would change.

TBH I wouldn't change the venue in hopes someone will follow through, everyone will just be disappointed. I'm sure everyone can afford a meal without a problem. Also you never know someone just might have comps or something anyways.
