Can't make it this Friday unless I get a cheap flight. I'll look into it, though. You may find interest for a weekly meeting lacking. Bi-weekly or monthly might be better. Plus, you may get bored with it too soon if it is weekly. (Guess it all depends on the people that show up).

Yeah, and the gambling thing could get awkward with peoples' different bankrolls, etc.

Well for the gambling, there's always the Craps Table at the Casino Royale. Should be enough to accomodate everyones bankroll with the 100x, if not personal taste. We could try out dice setting strategies, get Sevenshooter to prove....Actually forget I said that last bit.

Thanks for all the encouragement. It looks like there aren't enough people to make it a regular thing yet. However, I'll do my best to come down if any active members are in town. If I'm running very busy, and have no other reason to come to the Strip, I may invite you to come out my way on the west side of town.

Unfortunately, my once per year pilgramage to Vegas starts tomorrow and ends next Tuesday. The only way I'd be able to meet and greet with you would be if I won a mint and skipped work for the rest of the week... one never knows.

But if you wanted to get together and have coffee this weekend, I'm buying... (as the value of the free advice you've provided is pretty much priceless.

You know how to reach me...

I make my trips to Vegas once a year. If I'm ever in town, I'd be more than happy to drop you a line and try to arrange a coffee rendevous. It'd be an honor to meet you in person. It's a great idea.

I'd like to suggest possibly hosting a small meet and greet conference, you'd be the guest of honor.

i think this is a great idea! as mentiioned in my 'sequential royal' post we were just in vegas from the 21st to the 28th and the thought did cross my mind of meeting you or any of the regulars of this forum but didn't want to impose. we usually visit vegas about 3 times a year and might be returning around may. if i'm there you can count me in.
