Are we going to have a WoV East II? I think we should, from what I gathered last time around it's largely a matter of agreeing on when and where, and then agreeing on a restaurant. Why don't we just take these things one at a time?

I'll volunteer to keep everybody who came last time up to date by private message. I'll add anyone who says they are thinking about coming, or are coming, and delete anyone who requests it.

Let's start with "where and when". Initial probing has indicated last week of September is good for some of us, including me, although I am mostly flexible for anything past Labor Day weekend. October is out for me.

How about everyone weighing in with their votes who has specific dates and places in mind. I'll withhold from voting for a specific date for now. I also am OK with having it somewhere near where we did last time, or even Cherokee NC this time. I'm voting against The Meadows, or any AC.

I would love to be there but it is going to greatly depend on where it is. I have a 3 month old and a 2 year old now so getting away is a little tough. You must have been reading my mind, I was thinking about posting this same thing the other day, however I think a few people made the effort to show up last time because Mission was running the show. Hopefully he becomes available again for this. Pierce, if you are reading this please give us a shout out and at least give an update as to whats going on with ya. Even though this is just an internet forum, a lot of us worry when a respected member disappears.
Expect the worst and you will never be disappointed. I AM NOT PART OF GWAE RADIO SHOW

It depends. We're going to Atlantis for a week in September, and to Pittsburgh for a weekend in October. And I may be switching employers (but not careers) if so that would impact my mobility for days that are not Sunday.

I would consider going as well. I am pretty open with time frame, it would depend on where it is located though.
I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

I would almost certainly attend and last week of Sept so far is good.

As to where, I prefer to rotate for this kind of thing. Rivers may or may not be out depending on football that weekend and if it is a late game for Pitt parking goes to $40 or something. That is not to say I prefer one of the WV casinos but just saying we should know before we go.

If we go to Meadows again I prefer a different off-site place for dinner or better yet on site as they have changed their dining options.

Otherwise last time went well and I will roll whatever I have banked from the slots-payback to a new high limit pool if others are up for it.

The only problem with the last week of September is that it's G2E in Las Vegas. I don't know who-all is headed for that, but I'm planning to go. The actual G2E dates are Sept.29-Oct.1, with some activities one day either side of that, FWIW. Sounds like the WoV dinner will be either Tue or Wed.

Then again, perhaps no one from the East Coast is planning to go out for that.

I'm for backing it up from anything near October already, so 14th through 27th25th [edit] maybe ought to be what we are thinking.

I'd be willing to go if it fits my schedule. Like some others I have small children so getting away is the hardest part. So just pick a place and time that works for the majority and if I can make it I will. I had fun at the last one so here's hoping I can make it.

I will be on a cruise the 4th - 11th of Oct. Aside from that, all of Oct works for me.
