Hey ya'll, I was in Vegas just before it closed. So here is the report to hold you over until it opens again. I will try to do daily installments. The trip was a combo rugby event and vacation. I do some contract work with the match official group for Major League Rugby (if you're not familiar, check out the product during this sports downtime. Many matches are easy to find on Youtube). I was planning a trip anyway, and the league decided to run a few games at Sam Boyd in a tournament style event to avoid bad weather in the cold weather regions. So, I called the boss and asked to be put on the stadium crew. This got me a few extra days in Vegas, with my hotel (Westgate) covered and I got to watch the games from the sidelines or the press box. Win/win. I booked the remaining hotel days at the Luxor on an MLife comp for a one bedroom tower suite. Flew in on Delta nonstop and arrived in Vegas at 11am on Saturday Feb 8. Had a cheapo basic seat purchased with points. My husband also had a basic seat, we gambled that we would be able to get seats together. We've been married 16 years so, I don't think we would have cried if we hadn't been able to sit together, but we won the gamble. Checked in at 24 hours and scored seats around row 24 middle and aisle. Easy flight. The pictures below aren't from this trip but they seemed to fit into this narrative, so here are plane pictures.
