Doc tried to make a reservation for Saturday night for 20 but the 777 said they couldn't honor a reservation for a party that big and it would have to be first come first serve.

As a reminder, 5:00 is the "trickle in" time. I'd like to encourage everybody to come as close to 5:00 as you can, as our chances of getting our usual long table will be better at 5:00 than 6:00. We'll need as many warm bodies as we can as soon as we can to increase our bargaining power.

I've found the "trickle in" hour to be a fun social time to play musical chairs, talking with multiple people, before you have to pick a spot and stick with it.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Latest word is that we do have a reservation, aided by a craps pit supervisor. It's officially for 6:00, but do plan to wander in much earlier to help encourage anyone sitting at "our" table to get out ASAP so they can get it set up for us!

Right now, it's in my name, but I'll try to get there early and put a bug in the receptionist's ear that it's the WoV table, in case there's a crowd and that helps anyone find the right spot.

Just saw this thread today, 36 hours before I fly to Vegas. It looks like you still have fewer than 20 signups for the Saturday dinner, so if you'll take an inactive but long-time member I'd like a spot for my friend and I.

If nothing else I'll at least stop by to try and get my copy of the Wizard's book signed...

I might be able to catch a flight and use one Fri, Sat and Sun.

Which casino are they at?

What would you like for one?
