    So...most of us gamble while we're in Vegas. And I'd imagine nearly all of us have placed a bet or run a twenty through a machine for a friend, family member or coworker. So, why not do the same thing for the board? Get Sonya & Company in on the action!

    Obviously, slot and VP action would be problematic - no one's going to give Sonya their royal when they lost huge the rest of the trip (perhaps we could say the board gets the winnings of the next two or three hands/spins if we hit a jackpot on "the board's" spin). But it would be easy for table games players or sports/horse bettors. Just pick a hand (in advance:rolleyes2:) to play for the board, and donate the winnings. Or maybe we could place a bet on Sonya's favorite team (provided she's not a Cubs or Browns fan...none of us want VMB to fold:poke:).

    It might be cool to have a thread with pics of winning bets for the board

    Thoughts?

    I did kinda that for SuperBowl weekend. I posted live pic of my off strip hotel and first person to guess my hotel got a $10 bet on their choice of team. The winner picked Baltimore and he told me to just give winnings to Sonya. I gladly sent Sonya a $20 donation. But I like your idea of any kind of bet. I will do something on my upcoming trip, oh gosh, hmm, that is in 5 days! :D

    I'm a Seahawks fan, so you may still be doomed. :)

    I always appreciate the donations that keep the wheels turning around here. Making a bet in Vegas makes it a little bit more fun.
