    I mean, have you ever planned a trip around meeting someone on this site, that you've never met before? If so, how did it go?

    Met Jose at the Boar's bar @ MSS......it was fun and delicious! Also met another Jose that insisted I call him Joe.....it was more fun but no delicious there (except for dinner)....if you are considering it (a meet-up) go for it.....after all you can always "just walk away".....

    Probably met 8-10, some more than once, VMB people in Vegas. I never planned my airfare around a meeting, but there are a couple of members who have annual meetings. For many, it is just noticing countdown timers.

    If you're talking meeting someone in Vegas for a date or something else :wink2: then no.

    I've met several members in LV through VMB. Most meetings were prearranged, though I met a couple members entirely by accident. The worst experience was pleasant, and I'm still emailing a few members whom I occasionally see in Vegas.

    I met one of my best friends through this site, and have any number of other good friends as a result, and a lot of wonderful acquaintances. We don't go to Vegas much these days so our meets are off, but back in the day, and particularly when I was active at the then-active LVA, we had any number of meets, large and small. Golf and food have been the two big common denominators in most of this.

    This is how I finally met my father.

    No I'm kidding I've never met anyone through Vegas Message Board.

    My first couple of trips I tried to make it to organized meets. But, I always ended up at the wrong end of town and quite drunk. So, I've never been to a meet. I'm going to keep trying though!

    But, I have met a few people from here (and previous boards I was on) in Vegas and it's always been good. I've also met some people from the board locally if we notice we don't live far from each other.

    I also want to mention my husband is shy and he's been fine meeting these folks with me. Of course, he's in Vegas mode and drunk. That kind of makes him less shy. But, that's what Vegas is about.

    I've met quite a few people from this board and another I used to frequent.....I've never planned a trip around meeting someone but have organized meets and attended meets. Always lots of fun and you start off knowing you all have at least one thing in common.

    Oh he's shy. You should have seen him in high school. His mother told me stories about how his father had to spend the first week of kindergarten with him because he was terrified.
