Eh? You'd certainly know better than me.

Hint:

In your special case DJ, the Nov 2nd weekend would technically be more appropriate.

OK. I give up. What’s 11/9? And/or what’s 11/2?



Im guessing 11/2 is when the Republicans are voting

And the dems are 11/9

Its part of the voter suppression plans for the gop



11/2 is DJ's join date. I still can't figure out what 11/9 is. For the few races that vote on the November election date this year, that's 11/5.



11/9 is probably the day of the wtc disasters for those people who are dyslexic


Aka Europeans.


But yeah, avoiding EDC weekend is probably a good idea. Unless y’all wanna pay a bundle for a room.

But then there's this.

I think we did this on EDC week last year, too. It was busy in town, but not bad. Do the daisies maybe camp or something so that they don't have to drive?

Yes it was EDC last year as well. I remember some discussion about rates/prices being "high" :):):) for the weekend.

Speaking generally, after scanning over a few hotel rate calendars and flight pricing sites it seems Mother's Day weekend (May 11-12) is the lowest of the options listed.

I voted may 18-19 because it was the same weekend last year, but I'd prefer to avoid EDC as well so would prefer May 11-12 also.

SooPoo, you need to show up. Gialmere and Minty, you'd be welcome, as would several new members I've noticed. I'd also like to see Glen and FCBLcommish mrsuit31 and other industry people made welcome this time.

We talked about an escape room some time ago. I don't think that got done, but maybe some did? Either way, I'd really like to do one this time with you guys if people are interested.

Can we maybe go to Mob Pizza? I've heard it's really good but I haven't been there.

FCBLcommish

Didn't he say he worked for the darkside?
I thought I asked him in what capacity. I don't seem to recall getting an answer, or perhaps I just missed it?

I can think of many members who would normally like to attend but not until they knew whats up with that situation.

That would be a yes.

A little while back I had a thread about reactions to being barred or backed off. He made me an offer about giving me tips to avoid detection and generally be a better AP as long as I didn't play any of his properties.

For what it's worth, he seems really trustworthy and I know he offered advice on an AP comp maneuver for anyone who would PM him. I COMPLETELY understand your concern though.

I'm personally trying to weigh out the risk of meeting darksiders vs gaining a few allies, learning new plays and potentially setting up the workings of teams with people there.

What properties? Maybe I'm already 86'ed there so it won't matter (-;

I'm not making him out to be a bad guy or anything like that, I have nothing against him. He has been a fine poster on the forum from what I have seen. I wouldn't mind bending his ear and getting some tips. However, I would like to know more about what he does before I expose myself to any potential situation that could cause me problems. Not to mention, people move to other casinos and positions and sometimes even branch out on their own. Surveillance guy today, Griffin employee the next day. That reminds me, a few low level employees I used to work with years ago are now slot managers at various casinos. One chick came to verify a jackpot I hit a few months ago.

Link to that thread please.
