If people are up for doing AC for the East Coast , I would be interested.

I might be interested.

You should start a new thread if you want to continue the conversation.
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.

I thought we already had a place and date for the WoV East meetup in another "WoV East" thread?

Yes, indeed, there is at least one WoVCon East III thread. This thread is about a WoV Spring Fling 2017 (in Las Vegas). However, someone asked about a gathering in Atlantic City, and DJTB properly suggested that he start a separate thread on that topic.

Steely Dan is in concert at the Venetian at that time, for those into dinosaur rock.

So who else is interested in meeting up in Las Vegas on 4/22? Anyone who really would join us on a different date in the spring but absolutely cannot be there that weekend?

Which two? I am seriously considering a Reno run as part of that trip, too.

My list includes El Capitan (Hawthorne), Grand Lodge (former Hyatt Regency in Incline Village), Hard Rock (former Horizon, Lake Tahoe), Max (former Carson Station, Carson City), Nugget (former JA's Nugget in Sparks), and Pioneer Crossing (former Casino West, Yerington). Are there more I should be considering, and are some on this list only available on weekends?

I also have on my list both Boulder Bay (former Biltmore) and Cal Neva, both in Crystal Bay, but I don't think either has completed renovations and re-opened table games with new chips. Similar issue with the Terrible's Road House (former Gold Strike down in Jean). There are a few I think I can pick up in the Las Vegas area.


Two that will not affect you Doc. Both only have poker as a means to collecting a chip. Cactus Jack's and Jackpot Crossing both in Carson City. I also plan on visiting El Capitan, Nugget Sparks and Grand Lodge. I got Hard Rock, Max and Pioneer Crossing last WoV Con. One that I will be collecting that you might be interested in is Mizpah Club in Tonopah. I also will be visiting Scoreboard Lounge in Spring Creek but I am guessing that is quite out of the way for you and the Mrs.

Edit: If it works out I also plan on visiting Paiute Palace in California since it is much closer to Nevada than anything in California. As for Vegas the only one I need is Lucky Dragon.

Guess I will need to dig a bit further. CasinoCity.com only lists two places in Tonopah: Banc Club and Tonopah Station. And yes, Spring Creek is too far for this trip, but it might be possible if I head to Idaho Falls for that eclipse in August. However, CasinoCity.com only lists machines and a sports book there -- do they have poker or other tables?

Doc, you've been collecting chips for awhile now.

Just curious: how many different casinos have you gotten chips from?

They are both recent, if you look on the NGC reports from 2016 you will find them. Scoreboard says on their Facebook page that they have live BJ Thursday-Saturday after 6 pm. I couldn't find anything online so I called the Mizpah Club and the lady gave me these hours. BJ is open Thursday 6- about 12, Friday and Saturday 5- about 12. Poker is on Saturdays and Sundays.
