It might be a good idea to edit the original post should to show the actual date, place and time. Some people might be mistakenly waiting at the Cheesecake Factory.

Also, the Friday Main Street Station craps 2pm meeting should be included in the OP.

By the way, how long are we planning on being together on Friday at the 2pm meeting? I want to play as much as possible Friday and Saturday at the MGM properties for comping purposes.

How will I or anyone else know who the members are?

Maybe we should all wear tin foil hats or something for identification purposes.

Tin foil hats? I thought Bob was boycotting the event:-)

I think Doc posted pics from last year's event. So you can see him and me and Nareed (and others, but I don't know if they're attending Friday's event). There are also pics of HB on the site. When in doubt, look for the swarm of people playing 1x odds on MSS's $5 20x table, and you've found our cheap asses...

FWIW, I'll probably be at the Atomic Energy Museum around noon on Friday, before checking into MGM and then going to MSS for craps in the early afternoon.

I can get to a few places in and out quickly enough for lunch on Wednesday. I have been doing Mandalay Bay recently. I can arrive by 12:10pm and stay for about 50 minutes. Maybe longer, but depends on what is going on at work.

I did bet 3X a couple of times. That's why we pick the 20X table, right? ;)

I'll be doing 20X odds on at least a few bets...if the table is treating us well, probably more!

Also, as far as recognizing people, I'll be the generic-looking white guy in his late 20s with a fairly well-kempt beard. Hopefully that's vague enough, haha.

Actually, I may wear my pink baseball cap for the MSS meetup, makes me easy to pick out. Worked well the last time I met up with some WoVers.

Truly, I'm so lukewarm on craps, what could probably work is to look for the guy who's sort-of-but-not-really standing at the craps table and looks like he's trying to find you. That'll be me (see also: the photos that Doc posted the other day).

Or, alternatively, look for a woman sitting at a slot machine and reading an ebook. Follow her somewhat-annoyed glances and you'll find Doc:-)

My plane leave sin around 8 hours!!

I want to reiterate that the three members recently suspended are still welcome to attend WoVCon ]I[, as all three expressed they would.

ON other things, it's great having generous weight and bag allowances. Interjet allows 2 suitcases with up to 25 kg each on international flights. That takes a great deal of stress off packing. Simply put: when in doubt, take everything :)

So yeah, long story short, I'll make a solid effort to meet you guys at CR tomorrow. Serendipitous that my trip randomly happened to coincide with this. Small possibility I'll sleep through it though, so hope to see you guys there.

Edit: Saturday.

So I assume we're jumping right into craps at 2pm tomorrow? Or are those meeting up planning on grabbing a bite to eat at that time first? I ask cause I didn't know whether I needed to eat before the meet-up and also I will need to schedule time to eat before the 8pm Rock of Ages Show.

Also, people keep mentioning CR craps after the Saturday lunch. Wasn't there discussion about playing a different game Saturday after lunch since there was already going to be a craps meet-up Friday?

I suspect my wife and I will have a late breakfast and not eat again before 2:00 on Friday. Tonight she's talking about having me drop her at the outlet mall instead of her joining us for MSS.

I'm wondering whether anyone has figured out when we will do the Stratosphere, Eiffel tower, and Welcome to Vegas sign.

As for playing a non-craps game on Saturday, I think the issue has usually been finding a game that a group can play together.

I'm on my way to Vegas as I write this. I should get to my destination 3 hours from now.

I was thinking about starting a fresh thread maybe entitled
"WoV Con ]|[ this weekend" or something of the sort to start a fresh thread with updates on this weekend's activities. I didn't feel comfortable doing it without letting Nareed have the option to start one herself. I noticed her comment that she won't have Internet connection. Does anyone know why?

Oops! Change of plans. Hope you can see this along the way, HB.

As of this morning, my wife will be joining us at MSS, and we plan to have a bite at the brewpub there at maybe 1:00. All are invited to join us (at your own expense). I borrowed a different plaid shirt to wear this year, but I still have the same scruffy white beard.

Jealous of you all right now. Hope you all have a great time! I hope to make one of these eventually, unfortunately most of my weekends involve coaching baseball and especially this Memorial Day Weekend, one of our bigger events. HB, I thoroughly enjoy seeing that sign as well, always a good sign that I am close to good times!

So funny story...I should probs be more discreet, but whatever, I'm not coming back to Vegas for serveral monts at the very earliest.

I got backed off at MSS on Thursday playing BJ, but I figured they'd be fine with my craps action today. Turns out my back off was actually an 86 and I got a very stern GTFO from the same pit boss before I even bought in at the craps table just now. WTF! As Doc remarked, are they afraid I'm going to count the pips on the dice or what?

LOL. Bummed I missed out on the meeting today but I'll see you all tomorrow. Stay paranoid, casinos!
