    Hi everyone,

    Long time lurker, first time poster. I decided to join since I read this forum everyday and love vegas as much as you do. I'm fascinated by the way casino's operate and the psychology that goes into everything they do. I also like to gamble. and eat. and gamble.

    I've been there about twice a year for the last 10 years. I frequent M Life properties though have nothing against CET. Got married at Caesars last year and I'm platinum at M Life.

    Anyway, I look forward to talking and learning from you all and sharing some of my knowledge and experience over the years!

    Welcome- so excited to see another from Winnipeg!

    I was born and raised in Wpg (now in BC) and my sis is still living there! We do Vegas 4 times a year!

    Hope our trips connect some time- any upcoming trips planned?

    Just curious. How are the flight rates from Winnipeg? Last October we flew Allegiant from Grand Forks ND and noticed a lot of Canadiens license plates in the parking lots.

    Depends how savvy you are ;) I fly 3 hour direct flight from home via WestJet for about $450.00 round trip. Most people think going down to GF is cheaper but it's really not once you work in the gas, possible hotel stay and the other things Allegiant nickels and dimes for (bags, seats, etc). I check the fares almost everyday when I have a trip in mind and book when I'm happy with the price so I never need to fly with Allegiant.

    Another Vegas Lover from Manitoba. We are just out of Shilo, been here since 1981 and love Vegas too. We will be going down on the 31st of Jan for our 26th year, but we only get to go once a year, wish we could go more often, maybe when I win the lottery, lol. Looking forward to reading your posts.

    Staying at MGM this time? I haven't stayed there in a few years but stayed in a Grand King room when we did. We're heading out in July and got an executive King.. wondering how those are and how the hotel is since undergoing renovations last year.

    Welcome to the board. Hopefully you will see some cheap flights to Vegas in the future with New Leaf Airlines!
