I would probably make 22 April and possibly even another evening around that date. If any collector wants a northern Nevada chip I have one from Hotel Nevada in Ely I would sell for $1.25.

Sounds like interesting people and fun. I just cant get over the idea that casino people are listening to our plans.

Id only go with a mask over my face. And leave on a dirt bike with no plates.

I'd like to make everyone aware that there is a separate thread for another eating challenge the Spring Fling weekend: MCNUGGET CHALLENGE #5.

I would like to officially nominate the time and place as the McDonalds at the Plaza at noon on Sunday, April 23.

OK, any suggestions as to where the Saturday noon WoVCon gathering should occur?

Strip, downtown, elsewhere?

Well, thank you!

Didn't we agree to go to JOËL ROBUCHON at the MGM Grand?

I couldn't make the nugget challenge on Sunday, as my flight usually leaves around 9:30am... but if that works for all of you guys then keep it there, as I'm about 60/40 on attending right now as it stands.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Just to complicate things a little more, I thought I would show a bit about the history of these events. There has been quite a variety of choices for the "Main Event" with the first one being on a Wednesday in June and the rest being on Saturdays in April or May. Main Street Station's Triple 7 Pub has been the most common location, though we have gathered elsewhere both downtown and on the strip. Start times have been noon, mid-afternoon, and early evening. Here's the whole batch:


DateNameLocationStart time (PDT)
6/15/2011 WoVCon (original) Main Street Station 2:00
5/12/2012 WoVCon ][ Four Queens Noon
5/25/2013 WoVCon ]|[ Paris Las Vegas Noon
4/26/2014 WoV Spring Fling 2014 Main Street Station Noon
5/16/2015 WoV Spring Fling 2015 Main Street Station 6:00
4/16/2016 WoV Spring Fling 2016 Main Street Station 5:00
4/22/2017 WoV Spring Fling 2017 ??? ???


Of course, we have often had other gatherings the days before or after and earlier/later than the main event.

MrV asked the question, and I provided a rundown of where and when we have gathered in the past. Since then, we have had three days of thunderous silence in the thread.

My personal suggestion is that we imitate what we did last year: Main Street Station Triple 7 pub in the early evening on Saturday. I think that location has worked well for us in the past. Of course, I will be in town all day, plus the days before and after, with no agenda except to have some fun. Others may have constraints on their time.

I would like to hear from folks who plan/want to attend but who would have a problem/conflict with either the time or location I suggested.
