Afternoon All,

With 2015 being the 5 year anniversary of the original WoVcon concept, and with needing to give myself something to look forward to, I am planning to start organising next years WoVcon now.

I want it to be something special, hence the massive lead time.

However I know that this may be a problem with the dates I am suggesting but to Mrs Croupier now being a High School Maths teacher, it limits the dates we can make it out.

So here is the plan (which will evolve as we get closer, but with a 15 month lead time its deliberately vague)

Sometime between the 10th and the 22nd of August 2015 we get together. (I know the heat will be troublesome, but I work with what I can)

I will organise a trivia quiz and try and plan out some other things to do.

So - Who Fancies it?

I'm in any time. However, there is traditionally another gathering for the Global Gaming Expo, which will probably be in September. If you could do it earlier than August, then I think a greater number would enjoy it.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I wish I could, but due to Mrs Croupier only being able to take vacation at a certain time and the funds we need to get together for 2 weeks in Vegas (as we dont like flying 11 hours for a weeks vacation) its the only time that fits.

I'm also not averse to planning a smaller get together for August, and arranging the bigger gathering later even If I cannot attend.

When I read the title for the thread, I thought maybe you were planning a WoV gathering in Manchester!


BTW, at our recent gathering, I think rdw4potus was on the verge (maybe even a little past the edge) of accepting responsibility for planning a gathering for next year. Perhaps you should coordinate efforts with him.

As for the proposed date, my wife and I have visited Las Vegas in June and September, finding both periods too hot for us. We've never considered visiting there either of the months in between.

I would love to attend an WOV gathering,
I've actually met a few members videotaping the Mission Nugget challenge last year.

Scheduling may be difficult for me.
I get alot of vacation, 5 weeks a year but it all has to be arranged 1 year in advance and very difficult to change once arranged.
I generally plan 1 week to spend Xmas in Vegas so thats how I taped the nugget challenge.

The rest of the weeks off what I gennerally do is plan all my vacations around the Music festival schedule at the beautiful Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park and campground in FLorida even though I have no idea who is playing.
Once the lineups are anounced, I either take my RV Camper to the festival if its a great lineup of bands or opt for Vegas.
WOV supports censorship. Bring back free speech challenging lies.

Out. Summer is categorically impossible for me to take a vacation. I'm next going to Vegas in late February or early March, I will know by September when I am going if anyone wants to plan to hang out with me.

I'm thinking I will stay Saturday-Thursday and leave on Friday this time around. I really enjoy hanging out with everyone and enjoyed running with RudeBoiOi those two days, but I definitely need to schedule two days to just do my own thing. It will be cool enough temperature-wise, I like to walk aimlessly around town (probably the Strip, Ellis Island, that sort of thing...eight walking hours, hit a few places...stuff like that. Too much walking for most.

It also depends if Saturday flight prices are any different than leaving Sunday...but I will probably alternate hang out with people days and chill by myself days.

If I attend and Switch is there, will you translate for me ? The king's English can be a royal pain in the ass to understand.

He said that I am a WANKER and should be proud of it ???

I can translate.

And you should only be proud if you are proud of your willingness to regularly masturbate.

Know I know why the Sun never sets on the British Empire. It's because not even GOD trusts an Englishman in the dark !

Thanks Doc.

And a shame its too hot for the both of you. I'm still feeling guilty about not picking up the check for breakfast when you took us too the Hoover Dam. I feel I still owe you two a meal.
