    Name is Greg Ethington, I am a retired civil engineer. I have worked for two consulting firms, one County and one City and I now live in Carroll, Iowa.

    The wife and I love Vegas and make at least one trip in March for the Nascar Race each year. The LVMS is one of the finest facilities that we have been to. It ranks right up there with Lowes Motor Speedway and when you add Las Vegas to the Mix, LVMS wins hands down. We used to attend the Con AGG convention and the World of Concrete when I was still working. We used to stay on the Strip, We stayed first at the Sands, Imperial Palace, Flamingo Hilton, Excalibur, Riviera and Circus - Circus. Lately, we have been staying downtown. First at Lady Luck, Plaza, Four Queens and El Cortez. Our last stay at the El Cortez in 2007. I believe we stayed in the Tower and much to our surprise even though the casino was a little tired looking, our room was one of the best that we have stayed in except for the Sands Gucci designed garden room that we stayed in our first time out there.

    We Love your town and all of the wonderful People.

    Welcome aboard, Greg.

    I agree about LVMS – fantastic facility. It would be great no matter where it was. But the fact that it’s in Vegas…well that puts it over the top! :beer:
