Someone asked to make a thread to start planning and getting a list together. I figured I would take the lead. I can't edit this post but maybe BBB will edit it for me every once in awhile with the list of people. Next posts we can discuss what "events" there shall be. I believe last year the dinner was discussed in PMs or texts. Not sure if that is needed or wanted but we can. This will be my first time coming and I can not remember what type of things were done. I am up for pretty much anything for any amount of time.

The date will be May 11th 2019 and possibly May 12th if people are interested in getting together

If you are planning on attending please post in this thread. If you plan on coming but don't want to make it public maybe send me a PM and I will keep a tally so we know how many are needed for dinner reservations if they are needed.

Can a mod close the other spring fling thread and change the title of this one so it reads better on the forum lists?

Iím 99% coming (havenít booked a flight yet). My plan is to fly into Las Vegas on the 5th and then next morning head to California collecting casino chips for 3 days. I will arrive back in Las Vegas at some point on Thursday. Iím available to do things on Friday or Saturday any time but Sunday I fly out as I have a prior commitment that I have to attend.

Posting here to confirm that you have it correct: the wife and I will be there, arriving mid-day on Thursday 5/9 and departing mid-day on Tuesday 5/14.

As for rdw4potus, the first time I met him (8 years ago) I asked, "Who is rdw?"
Any of you who attend and don't know the answer to that, you can ask him yourself. And if he skips out, you can ask me.

I have every intention of participating the night of the dinner. I doubt that I will partake in other activities unless someone wants to take out a big life insurance policy on me for my wife and watch me die after about sixty steps on the hike.

You know there are some pushing just this as investments for a percentage of the death benefit.

Then they pool policies and sell shares to even out the volatility creating a (on paper) steady income return.

I am still on the fence

My family is ready to go. Its just me now to convince.

I have a full 7 day a week schedule beginning right after those dates and Im not sure I want an exhausting trip to precede that or stay home and chill a bit

Previous thread for determining dates closed.

First post in this thread has been updated (a lot!) carrying over info from previous thread. First post will continue to be updated every day or two, and thread is sticky'd to top of subforum until event.

Please post any updates of your plans below, and I will edit them into the first post. Thanks!

Note to GWAE. That's 20, plus I would guess 6-10 more to come. As a previous organizer, I would suggest you try to set up a party room or other restaurant reservation now, then we can finalize a head count with them about a week before or whatever they need.
