Long post warning. Short version: I won't attend this year and here's why.
I attended the Spring Fling last year, but was left a bit underwhelmed. There didn't seem to be a lot of organized activities, so I tried to organize some on my own.
As I recall, there was a dinner and group gambling Saturday, McNugget challenge and lunch on Monday, but that's it.
So I announced and organized a Downtown Vegas Walking Tour
Sure, the dinner and gambling (which turned out to be poker at Binions) was fun, as was the McNugget challenge, but I was kinda left wondering if I missed something. After all, it seemed like not a lot of activities for people to fly in from all over to attend.
Of course, having well over a dozen people attend, but only two join me for the downtown stroll, may have contributed to my sour feelings.
For years, I've been hearing about VIMFP - a meet-up of fans of the Vegas Gang and Five Hundy By Midnight podcasts. I've always wanted to attend, except they hold it on October. With my Sept G2E and Nov Table Games trips, no way I could also come for VIMFP. The podcast recap made them seem like tons of fun. With very full schedules.
Last spring, these podcasts also organized VZZZT. Sort of a springtime mini VIMFP, which based on the recap, still seemed like a lot more fun than the WoV Spring Fling.
Also last spring, the 360 Vegas podcast organized 360 Vegas Vacation 3. Again, seemed like more fun than WoV.
So, when the Vegas Gang announced that there would be no VZZZT this year, and around the same time 360 Vegas announced their 360 Vegas Vacation 4 for Memorial Day Weekend, with an already jam-packed schedule, I jumped on it.
Bottom line, I'll be in Vegas 5/28 thru 6/1, with no additional trips until G2E at the earliest.
Anyone interested in should check out the 360 Vegas Vacation schedule
Of course, you're also invited to attend if you wish.
So, sorry if I bummed anyone out. Have fun with the Spring Fling, but I won't be there.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood?
Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.
