    Looks like we have a lot of VMB'ers going to Vegas towards the end of August. I'm currently making reservations for 6 people at Tequila Taqueria at Bally's for Friday, August 28th at 6:30pm. As you know, 6 is the limit at one table. If we get more interest, I will set-up a second reservation. Please let me know.

    I hope many of you can make it!

    I am interested but not sure about the 6 people limit. The meets I have had were more people....not sure how this will be. Last April we had 26 attend.
    Are we possibly able to reserve enough for a larger group....oh - have been past the restaurant but not sure how many it holds....any idea?

    Do you have a number in mind of people you know that would be attending?

    This is not my M&G....My gatherings are almost always 20+ people the last few years....I will schedule one soon....I will look for a nice - wide open place where people will feel safe....maybe an area where there is a closed bar....but we could gather & talk....I am going to check on the bar area at Flamingo that is never open....across from where the Flamingo Diamond lounge was....it holds many people...could get drinks at a slot before....lol...not the best but may be only option....if you have any suggestions....please feel free...

    I think the numbers for August VMBers are dropping quite a bit. I would say that with Covid there will probably be significantly less people attending than what you had previously. He did say he can add more people if more than 6 respond, but tables are limited to groups of 6 anyway, so that makes sense.

    We can do it in groups of 6. Once I see the numbers, I will grow it.

    Numbers of VMB'ers in August are dropping, but hopefully we get a good crew going for this meet!

    I will miss the flexibility we have in the lounge area...can move around & actually chat with people...We did Oceans One last April...everyone sitting & was not easy to get up & go chat with others because we blocked areas with other customers.... I have been bringing stick-on name tags to every gathering...we put our VMB handle & our true names....it really helped us ID everyone without the pressure of trying to remember in a crowd....I still have some, would you like me to bring some?

    I'd just do it in a suite. That way you have enough room, can drink and not worry about what the hotel's rules are re party size and distancing. If Vegas wasn't so meh right now, I'd volunteer. But alas all trips are cancelled at the moment.

    Everyone is more than welcome to pile in my standard ass room at Bally's, but being we only have 3 so far, I think we are good. :)

    Guess it’s down to me and @sybgal and crew. I’ll start scouting out a few places if anyone else wants to hang. Maybe a “socially distanced” slot pull? :thumbsup:
