    Yea, he and his wife had a boy.. He was our host for the last 3 years just before we came on board here. He actually gave us the heads up about this board. Good guy, sounds like he is a regional sales manager for a gaming company. We will miss him as he was a good host, however it is the way of the host. I hope this works out and he is off afternoon shift so he can spend quality time with his wife and son...............Rick

    he's been my host since 2014 and honestly changed my Vegas experience. I was a MGM loyal but he found me on twitter, gave me a good reason to try Total Rewards and 8 trips later I'm still there, diamond for second (almost third) straight year.

    I'd been emailing him for a week trying to switch my June booking back a day, so yesterday's email explained why I never got a response. Luckily I called the host on duty at The Linq and sorted it out last night.

    Hunter if you ever come on here, thanks for everything, I will miss your chats when I'm in town, which I honestly think will be a little less now that you're gone!

    Yep, got that this morning as well. He just arranged my upcoming trip 2 weeks ago. Sux because he always comped everything for me on the back end. Now I have to see the host on duty before I leave. They're usually pretty stingy about it.

    He gave some valuable info on this board and seemed to have a good rep among players. Good luck Hunter.

    I was sick to my stomach when I opened my email today. Hunter is no longer with CET. Actually, I threw up a little in my mouth. I had a prior host hunt me down, and after one trip, she blew me off. I gambled more that trip than I ever had too. I hate feeling like I am begging for every little thing too. I made diamond later year, in two trips, for the first time ever. Hunter was awesome and took great care of me. They are going to assign me a host. Ugh.
    Hunter, you will be missed. You were a great host and gave us great information on this site. I hope you will do well in your new Adventure! Just know you are missed!!!

    Just noticed on our TR app that he has been removed, it is really sad. Shell and I really worried about it after being there New Years. Hopefully everyone will let each other know who there new host is and that person is a good host. I don't want someone who will break rules but will take them to the edge and work in our interest as well as the companies.....Rick

    Hunter was not "officially" my host but he helped me out a few times on rooms and backend comps when he did not have too. I am sure he will be successful in wgatever next.

    Hunter was great to me and to lots of people on VMB. I'm sure he will be missed. The new guy has some big shoes to fill.

    Hunter treated us very well, he will be missed. I haven't seen anything from another host to this point, so hopefully they will come through for us. I have a few more trips upcoming and he always provided slightly more than the offers received.

    I hope he does well in his new venture.

    Hunter was my host only because he found me on twitter. I've been approached by other hosts since, including in New Orleans, but I wonder if I even get assigned another host. I have been diamond for almost three years and my play is decent, but not sure if they'll rush to get me one

    I spoke with the host on my TR app today. I am super sad that Hunter left. He was very very good to us. Of course, our previous host, at Paris, was good to us too. Not sure it's true that this host I spoke to can't comp off the back end...seems she can. I told her Hunter had booked us into a strip suite, with 225 free play and BSB show tix. She said we could only use one offer. I told her to put my show tix on my room, and hopefully we would get it taken off on the back end. I also booked a limo through her.

    Hunter always took the limo and show tix off, as well as somewhere around 600 we had charged to the room. Hope this is the same with this lady.

    She said to book with her next time and she would become our new host. I guess I will see how this trip goes first.

    I got a pm from Hunter...he is working days, more money, less stress. I am very happy for him and his new family...sad for us.
