I'm in, if the day job allows for it.

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. )


There's a third game. Sometimes the bartops screen is so messed up, you can not tell what cards are dealt or what cards you end up with on the draw!

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. )

I was there recently, for a week long conference, the food was inedible! I am sure the hotel/restaurants was not expecting a couple of hundred guests driving towards Steubenville 3 times a day for something decent to eat.

Anyway, just my opinion and some recent data points. for what it's worth.
I hope this meet comes together somehow.

I often attend G2E and there is always an associated Wiz meetup.

Iím attending again this year and will soon start a roll-call thread about it.

Because the dates line up, Iím going to also attend The Summit, for the first time. FYI. It was formerly called VIMFP - Vegas Internet Mafia Family Picnic.
More info: http://vegasnerdsociety.com/

Summit: 10/11-10/13
G2E: 10/15-10/17



3rd year in a row that I miss g2e by 5 days. Have a convention on the 22nd. I tried to get them to move it for next year.

I might actually plan an EC trip during this time if it ever gets set up and confirmed.

I'm a little slow picking up on this thread, but I guess I need to keep my eye on it. That is particularly true if there are plans for a WoV gathering in the South, though I would also consider a gathering in the NE provided it is at a time of year with near-zero chance of snow.

There have been multiple gatherings at the NC casinos, with the latest being the one that SooPoo mentioned, which was in conjunction with the eclipse last year. I think I posted photos of that one and at least one earlier gathering.

The last time I was at either Wheeling Island or Mountaineer was in May 2008, with quick stops at each to collect souvenir chips. We had attended the WVa Wine and Arts Festival at which a couple of my musician friends had performed and were on our way to a stop at Niagara Falls.

I also like the idea of a Biloxi gathering. A month or two ago we had tentative plans for a MS trip that would have included both Biloxi and Tunica, but those plans morphed into an 8-day chip-collecting trip that skipped Biloxi but included Tunica and extended to AR, MO, IA, IL, IN, MI, and Ontario before we headed home a week ago.

Attending a gathering in any of the PA casinos would require a bit of advance planning for us, I expect. Of course I would hope to combine such a trip with souvenir-collecting stops at several places once new chips are available: Rivers (Philadelphia), Stadium (Philadelphia), Stadium (Derry satellite), and/or Wind Creek (Bethlehem).

Well, I certainly didn't mean for my post to shut down the conversation for three days!

Quote: DeMango

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

Quote: Boz

Iím in for a Biloxi meeting. As long as we make a side trip to the Shed for lunch. And a 90 minute drive to the FloriBama for a non gaming fiesta.

Quote: mcallister3200

If youíre talking about the bbq place thatís been on tv etc (shedde bbq?) itís northeast ocean springs, maybe even technically St. Martin. ... Biloxi maybe best place in US for value oriented modest stakes gamblers IMO....



Got to thinking about this and wanted to bring the subject up once again. I asked my wife about a possible WoV gathering in Biloxi, and she is enthusiastic. Although she mostly is standing to the side or sitting somewhere reading her Nook, she has attended quite a few WoV gatherings in Las Vegas, one in Niagara Falls, two in Cherokee, and a couple of mini-gatherings (just two WoV members) in Biloxi and Tunica.

Yes, I/we would be quite interested in meeting some WoV folks for some fun in Biloxi. Usually we are reasonably open on timing, but next month would not likely work well for us -- we have about two weeks in the middle of the month blocked out for a trip including a 10-night cruise to the Caribbean. October, on the other hand, is still mostly open on our schedules. I think there are only four days all month that we have any commitments.

Is anyone interested in meeting in Biloxi some time in October? (We don't really require that you be from the South!) Can we make a group of it?

I like the idea of meeting people, if I had the time.

Yet, I underestimated that surveillance is aggressively tracking card counters. I don't see myself coming to the meetings.

Agree or disagree?
