    This will be the last thread created for this topic. I will ask a moderator to close the other two threads so everything ends up here moving forward.

    The date of July 7 was picked in the previous poll. Now we need to pick the place to meet. This poll will be open for 2 weeks. Please pick your top two choices for which casino.

    We can also us this thread as a roll call. I would appreciate it if people would respond as a definite or a maybe. You can also respond as plus one or more. I will give updates/ consolidate attendance as this thread builds.

    As always please let your voice be heard, give opinions and throw ideas out for the meet up.
    We may end up wanting to do something like a group slot pull, take over a craps table or meet somewhere for food.


    The only two cents I will throw in to start this off would be.
    1)I believe the meet up should take place at one of the casinos located on the boardwalk.
    2) The meet up should take place no earlier than 5pm. Anyone coming into town can’t check in until 4pm and I want to give people time to get checked in to their hotel before coming to the get together.

    We will make this happen and everyone will have a good time. Hopefully we can build momentum and interest as the date moves closer.

    Ah shoot, this 5pm time might be a wrinkle for me -- but if I leave AC at 7pm, I think I should be fine. Is it possible to decide the time once we've determined what people's travel plans are? If the majority are coming in on Sunday, I can see for making it later, however if many are there earlier and/or leaving Sunday night, I wouldn't mind an afternoon-ish start. I guess it all depends. I'm open.

    Mr and Mrs Wallew will definitely attend.
    That’s why I want everyone to chime in. I may make suggestions but I have no interest in making executive decisions. We have 2 1/2 months to work out details.

    Fair point! I will be in attendance with my female counterpart as well. @Gino -- you think you can make this?

    I'm in. I can meet-up much earlier, as I plan on being there in the morning. I will be staying at Ocean, and I feel that would be a fun place to meet-up, but I'm easy and can meet-up anywhere the group decides to meet.

    I wonder if Ocean's will comp me that weekend. Problem is, they have no VP bar and the one at the sports book is pretty meh. There's literally no hangout spot at that casino, unless you're okay with just hanging out and drinking.

    I will be at the hard rock that weekend with a +1. Lobby bar could be a fun place to meet, VP and probably live music

    Darn, we are scheduled to leave on 7/7. We are driving so we have some flexibility but 5 is too late for us to head home.

    Feel free to suggest another time. That’s what this thread is about. I only suggested the after 5pm time as a starting point. I live 45 minutes away so any time works for me.

    This could also give you a reason to stay one more night.

    Try again. Yesterday I called Ocean and they comped me a room for July 7 and 8. (I am black level which may have something to do with it.)
     
    Can I just move here?
    3 weeks. Yikes!

    I'm the next level down at Platinum. Did you book through a host? I don't have one at Ocean's yet

    There seems to be plenty of interest for AC meet ups. Let us know the next time you will be in town. Could probably wrangle a few VMB members up.

    No host. Never a host because then I feel obligated. Just called and asked for a complimentary room for July 7 & 8.

    Gotta love when people aren't providing the right info. I think you may have a private reservation line through your back card, however. In that case, I'm sure they're trying to book those folks. I do think it's weird that they wouldn't want to get people reserving from further out. Helps them forecast.

    We're flying out at 3 from Philly and the limo is picking us up at 12 @ Caesars - probably not unfortunately...

    Damn! I figured as much. P.s. there's a booze cruise daily in AC during the summer if you're looking for some foolish ideas.
