My deepest condolences Doc. I hope there was no foul play involved and that you can soon find out the truth of what happened to your son.

I'm not sure if I can make it or not this year. However, I will try to get a private poker table for everyone like before. Unfortunately, Binions has closed their main poker room since then(that's too bad because it was actually a beautiful new poker room, what a waste) and are now down to only a few tables near the sportsbook IIRC. So, I'm not sure what kind of staffing they have available or even who's running the place nowadays.

I can also try at GN but I'm not sure who's over their now either, I'll need a head count and time, I know It's hard to say what time everyone will be done with dinner and socializing. Can someone give me a good guess based on past years?

It might come down to winging it and haveing to ask GN to open a new table for us and allow other people waiting on the list to join.

I will need a headcount so speak up.

I'm in for the 5pm dinner, but have a 51s game to attend.

I think we have like 7-8 people and should be done with dinner around 7-7:30pm, so 8pm should be a safe bet. This is my educated guess from current details and prior events.

I made a reservation for 7:30 April 21 at Nora's for 8 people. 7:00 wasn't available so I went with 7:30. Nickgamingstuff you never got back to me about Friday so as of right now I don't have you included in the reservation.


A last minute change of plans has me in town this weekend. I can make dinner at Nora's if there is room to increase the reservation. If it is a problem or a hassle, no worries.

I will be @ MSS on Saturday ~around 5pm (as per the Wiz's post).

On a much less important note, I think I'm going to make an executive decision here and say that 5:00 will be the official meeting time at the Main Street Station. As usual, we'll have drinks and appetizers for an hour as people trickle in and plan to order main courses around 6:00. Why so early? As far as I know, nobody planning to go is staying at the MSS, which would have helped reserving a table, so as an unannounced group our odds will be better getting a big table at 5:00 than 6:00. I'll try to get there even earlier to reserve a large table but am doing an organized 80-mile bike ride that day so can't make any promises.

Bruce and I will also plan on trickling in around 5ish. Are we doing trivia again this year?

I'd love to get in on some random small side bets of waitress trivia or other random things =P.
