    I know the intent to meet is always there..people communicate their whereabouts (time/place etc) but do u guys actually end up meeting?

    If yes, any accounts on meet ups, fun things done together?

    This board has a whole sub forum for this, called "Vegas Get Togethers" where people will post their dates and times and ask if anybody else will be in town.

    There used to be a big annual meet for March Madness, but I don't know if they did that this year or not.

    Otherwise, I think if somebody were to try and set up a big massive meet, like one where 40-60+ people would show up, could be done here... but it takes a lot of time, effort and organization (as well as people skills and patience). I think a lot of people would be interested in going to a big meet, but nobody wants to take on the work and headaches that such a meet would entail setting up and organizing.

    Not planned but let me tell you what happened in May. I was in the Orleans and decided to shuttle it back to Ballys. There was nobody in line except for this one person who looked familiar by a picture and posts here. We struck up a conversation and I asked "you wouldn't happen to be Dewey"? He said why yes I am. We rode the shuttle back to Bally's talking about his poker playing during the trip.

    Yeah, it happens, and it makes sense to me why it does.

    I've wondered if people who live in a major metropolitan area -- such as Cleveland, Dallas, Seattle or Fargo -- ever get together in their hometown to reminisce/share stories.

    I've been curious, has that ever happened via this board?

    I had 2 opportunities to met.
    The first fell through and the second resulted in a joint craps game.
    Some people prefer to met up, get a bite and have a few drinks while others like me just want to get together for some craps and depending upon the time of the day/night maybe some drinks.
    Usually we are always up and about and don't always have time to meet up.

    One day I wandered into the chat room here. As a result I have made many good friends whom I have met in Vegas many times. There is nothing quite like meeting people who share your obsession. :thumbsup:

    I met up with her once and she IS one hot babe. She's a lightweight when it comes to pounding shots of sake though.

    I've thought about seeing if anybody wants to meet up on a trip before but haven't posted anything because I have a hard time setting timeto meet up with somebody. I have a friend that I went to high school that lives just outside of Vegas and I haven't even found time to meet up with her on my past three trips.

    When I first started my solo trips, I tried meeting up but it just never worked. I did meet a bunch of people from another board though. More then a handful.

    Now, I just go. I'll meet people there and I have a few local buddies I meet up with.

    I one time met a guy from this board who managed to spill about half a liter of Grey Goose on the granite counter tops at the Aria Skysuites... :poke:

    That same trip, I watched another crazy cat from the board down a bottle of Cristal...without using any glassware. :drunk:

    I met a guy at Boars Head bar sitting with a couple of hot chicks because I thought I was meeting somebody from here! I asked him "Are you Joe from Wisconsin who posts on VMB". It wasnt Joe, but he, and his harem of ladies turned out to be nice folks!:wink2:

    I have met a number of people, and I am aware of travel buddies coming out of it. But mostly it is a fun time with down to earth people who are crazy for vegas.

    Your memory is fuzzy. I believe you opened the door for her with your "I like your cocktail" comment, and she totally walked through it with her "Did you say cock?" comment.

    I was drunk too, but I thought she was good looking enough. :evillaugh

    Last trip I met up with someone from this board. We hung out for a few hours, did some gambling, grabbed a lunch and then both of us went our own ways.
