Vegas: Who's in?

Post by PilotDrummer on Thu Feb 17, 2011 2:04 pm

Who's headed to Vegas this year? Mrs. PD and I are going once again, hopefully without the repeat of Flood 2010. We're on the 6:30 flight on SWA with what sounds like the rest of the band.

Who's comin'?

I like the confidence that we will be playing on Saturday. Suspect

Of course, there is always the NASCAR races as a fallback event.

Heading down Friday, unfortunately I banked on a first round bye and my plane lands just after tip-off.

No checked baggage and tell the cabbie to step on it and he'll get a decent tip.

I will not be going. I start my drive back to the PNW the morning after we win the tournament.

Got one of the last tickets for the Friday morning flight. Of course, the price had gone up about double what it was in December! Sad

Similar situation here... I land 16 minutes before tip-off... I may try to go stand-by on an earlier flight, but that isnt looking promising...

What about a PN watch party in Portland for those of us who can't make it to Vegas?

I think watching BYUtv in a bar would be fantastic ... cheers

Hey R54, maybe you can meet up with some of your relatives in Boise and caravan the rest of the way. I think the timing might be about right.

So here's the Vegas Report so far:

The basketball sucked! That's all I have to say about that Evil or Very Mad

The blackjack tables sucked! That's all I have to say about that. Evil or Very Mad

We went over to the Bellagio on Saturday night to drink some of UP's booze. A good time was had by all, but man was I out of place over there. Thanks Woodless! for all your hard work. Cheers!

UP7587 and I found some tickets to the NASCAR race on Sunday. I fit in much better over there. It wasn't the most exciting finish, but it was still pretty fun. The Vegas crowd seemed to enjoy Kyle Busch's wreck, so much for home town fans Very Happy The only down side was that you didn't always know what was going on or why someone had to pit, though it was pretty clear that Biffle was having fuel issues. If you ever find yourself at a race, make sure to bring ear plugs, it was LOUD!

As always, it's been a great trip. Hopefully next year we'll see some more purple shirts hanging around the Orleans. Cheers!

Basketball wasn't as good as it could have been, that's for sure. Bellagio hospitality suite was enjoyable, and I enjoyed the heck out of playing in Vegas once again.

Thought about tickets to the race, but with the women's game Sunday, wasn't feasible. Had to play a trick on the GU band: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqIC824EeY8

I think mashups are something we can work on next year.

Some of those bands need to switch to khakis. Jeans are not a good look.
