    My Trip Report

    ...It's never to early to start planning the next trip to Vegas, and I, unlike a lot of you, won't be taking a trip this fall back to Mecca. :(

    Anyhow, I have verified that the NCAA Tournament kicks off on Thursday, March 18th, 2004.

    Make plans now! Lets see if we can take over TWO craps tables this time...

    Anyhow, I've decided that since I have to fly cross country to get there, I'm going to arrive on Wednesday night--St Paddys day--and fly home on Sunday. 4 Nights in Vegas. Longest trip yet! [​IMG]

    Anyhow, actually *watching* the games has always been secondary to me, so I figure I'll make my bets in the morning, play poker all day, then play craps and blackjack at night.

    Who's with me?!?!?!? [​IMG]

    Mikey

    T minus 226 :rolleyes:

    I definately plan to make the March Madness run, if work (and the wife allow)!!! [​IMG]

    We Actually hope to make it once more before then, but work and conferences elsewhere keep me booked until November or after... :(

    I will keep the throwing hand loose though as I Hit the craps table at locals joint last Sat. night and broke even playing over 3 hours.

    I want to come this time! We usually make a spring trip, closer to April/May, but we might be able to bump it up a little. But, we can't plan that far in advance :rolleyes: Something always screws up plans we make. We'll see in Dec./Jan. [​IMG]

    Mikey,

    There's a good chance I could make this one. I turn 40 next April and I think my present will be a boy's trip during one of the March Madness weekends.

    I'm in unless I somehow need to cancel because of another 'freaking' snowstorm [​IMG] of the century. For those of you that don't remember, I was to go to Vegas last March Madness except a little snowstorm in Denver kept my plane from even leaving Omaha so I had to cancel the trip altogether. Told the fellas that I am in for 2004 no matter what.

    I might be able to spring for a few days. Depending on how bad my December trip with the wife dents the wallet.

    If the hubby will stand for it :rolleyes: , I'm with y'all! Better start saving my bucks. I was on a good run the last round of BJ I played there, so I need to see if it continues.

    I am in the 18th to the 22nd. Its looking like the 4 queens at 19.00 a night, at this time. As soon as I pay back a little of the last trip, I will book this one.

    I am looking at mid September for another. Anyone?

    It may sound creepy, But can I just follow you around with a video camera? Package that with a march madness video, and market it to the girls gone wild crowd. That would put some green in the Vegas account!!

    Mikey,

    Count me in! There'll be about a dozen of us making the pilgrimage from CT and MD right around 3/18/04 [​IMG]

    My friend & I have already done hotel rate searches, even though we both know it's way too early to book anything...we've got the ITCH.

    Hopefully our group can meet up with the T2V group and raise home hell! [​IMG]
