    I stumbled across this board a couple of years ago after my host approached me on the casino floor and offered to comp my stay that trip. I had no idea what a host was at that time and had just that trip even signed up for a players card, didn't know what those were either until a friend advised me to get one. So, after I got home, I started researching hosts, player cards, corporate offers, comps and all that stuff. My research led me to this board. This board is so full of information and informed opinions, that I visited regularly for quite awhile just to read up on things and gather data, so to speak. Recently, I discovered trip reports! Y'alls trip reports are so informative and entertaining that I can't hardly stand it! After reading several of them, I started to feel guilty for being such a "lurker", so I registered just so I could say a big "THANK YOU" to all the members of this board that take the time to share their knowledge and experiences with the rest of us.

    I go to Vegas quite often. Sometimes on business, sometimes with groups, friends, and even just by myself. And alot of y'all on here have enabled me to improve my "vegas experiences" in tons of different ways. So, again, I thank you, and please please please ... for all you regular posters .... keep it up!

    Welcome to the board! I also knew NOTHING when I took my 1st trip....never really gambled & wanted to go to LV "once" just to see the sights...lol..... yes, sure. :) Discovered this great board after returning and found out all I had missed since I didn't even know to get a players card on my trip. This board has all the up-to-date info and really nice people to help us all.

    It always makes me so happy to hear that the info here helped improve people's trips. This whole place started because I knew NOTHING when I booked my first trip and make ALL THE MISTAKES!! (Did I mention I paid rack rate for a Circus Circus Manor room AND ate at the buffet?)

    Even after a couple decades, I'm still learning new things about Vegas every week on VMB. We've got a great group here.

    I love this board. I post a lot here and I learn as much or more than I am able to share of what I know. If that makes any sense... :)
