Greetings!

We have had a few different get-togethers in the history of this site. There have been a number of WoVCons as well as a couple of WoV East events. Naturally, any scheduled large get-together should still have its own dedicated thread.

The purpose of this thread is discussing where you will be and when you will be there if you would like to meet up with any other WoV Members. It can be in Vegas, or some other major gambling destination, but it doesn't have to be. If you're taking a trip to a casino and don't mind people knowing when you are going there, then mention it in this thread and perhaps find someone to meet up with.

For the most part, I only go to casinos for the purposes of AP, so I don't have anything to list right now. If I am ever going to a casino for other purposes (such as writing or reviews) I'll mention it here. It just seemed like a good thread to create.

I'm likely to be good for any WoV East get togethers in later Sept., with declining but possible availability after that, whether PA, WV, or NC

I'm good with late September and any of those states except North Carolina. I might need to wait for my ex-wife's schedule if it is going to be late September, though, in order to commit to a specific day. Is Maryland not an option? I was thinking Lady Luck Nemacolin or Rocky Gap could both be very nice for a WoV East.

Might or might not make an East event. Not even going to put up dates as my schedule fills too fast.

Lucky Lady both charges admission and is really small. Just saying for those who do not know. Though you can see 2 white tigers while you are there.

Good thread, way too busy to make plans but always open to a PA meeting. Seems most here are in Western PA but I could be available based on timing. Would love to hang, it doesn’t always have to be gambling AP, meeting, socializing and drinking with good people is another form of AP.

They charge, but you get a $10 gift card in exchange for the $10 to go in. I figured that we would be all eating together again, anyway, so that's probably what the gift cards would go towards. I guess there are some little restaurants out there, but I'm not familiar with any of them.

I guess the adamant non-smokers, if any, would like Rocky Gap. It's all non-smoking, execept for a very small smoking room with something like twenty slots. Any casino in Ohio, as well. Rivers is roughly half non-smoking, but the only self-serve beverage machine is in smoking. Rivers would also be way too loud for our event, in my opinion. I think Rocky Gap is kind of loud, too, for how small it is.

Lady Luck Nemacolin would likely be our best bet to get our own Craps table if everybody wanted to do that again. I think the minimums there are generally still $5 during non prime time, but I could call and ask. The casino is virtually AP proof unless you really like vulturing UX only on the nickels denomination, so I haven't been there in I think about a year. Maybe less than a year. I mainly just went to see if the vulturing situation had changed at all and it hadn't. You'd be surprised the value a handful of machines could give you if you have the place to yourself as a vulture.

We could get a $5 Craps Table at Wheeling Island, but the place is an absolute dump. It actually borders on embarrassing, at this point. If you would like to play any of their horrendous Video Poker paytables, the VP itself is only the second game; the first game is extreme slow-playing your first hand to figure out which buttons work and which ones don't. This is not an if. At least one button will not work if you are playing the bartops.

The buffet is hit or miss, but it misses much more than it hits. The steakhouse is almost never open and would be ridiculously overpriced even if it was open. The food court sucks and consists of only three places. I guess the burgers and pizza are okay. Either way, the group dinner would definitely be elsewhere. If someone suggests Figaretti's for dinner, then maybe I'll try to make a better case for the casino.

Mountaineer might be okay for the event. I forgot to check the Craps minimums last time I was there. It's probably slightly nicer than the Island now, which isn't saying very much. I don't know what the dining situation there is like exception to the buffet circa two years ago. It was okay then. I've been there a few times since then, but haven't eaten anything while there.

Any casino in Columbus will have more than a $5 minimum on Craps. Rivers often will, but sometimes not. I can't go into Meadows and it turns out they WILL actually prosecute me if I do. Keep it classy, guys. I'm glad the group won money overall from them on the Craps last time. Actually, the members of this forum combined are probably highly profitable at Meadows all things considered, now that I think about it...

Always wonder when east coast meetings are discussed, why Biloxi, the best gambling east of the Mississippi is never mentioned?

On the serious side, I assume they are the same kind Sigfried and Roy had. Something like 6 known to exist and the have two of them, or so I am told 6. If you go and have a choice, see them at dusk when they roar. Other wild animals there as well, no charge to drive up and see them. Rest of the resort is flipping expensive.

They are not near the casino, you have to drive there. Section of the Berlin Wall there, too. And the weirdest monument a person made to themselves you have ever seen.
