    Ladies and gentleman

    I was going to start a thread about this event a few weeks ago but have been sidetracked like the rest of you because of the current state of affairs.

    I figure this is as good as time as any to get the ball rolling to begin the planning phase of what some of us hope will become an annual event. Last year we drew a nice little group and had quite a few others interested but be able to make it. This year we hope to be able to get more of us together.

    Last year’s event took place on July 7( the Sunday after the 4th of July). The first part of this group planning will be picking a date. This is where things can get extra tricky this year.

    I think we should shoot for somewhere between July 4 and Labor Day (September 7).

    Just like last year I just want to get the ball rolling. I want to hear from anyone interested. I will post polls for date and venue just like last year one we get a decent amount of suggestions.

    Looking forward to another great VMB get together.

    Ok, I’ll throw the first proposed date out there. How about Friday August 21.

    It is later in the summer and hopefully things will be somewhat back to normal by then. The reason I am proposing a Friday night is because last year we had quite a few people interested but couldn’t make Sunday work but could have made it on a Friday or Saturday.

    Let me know your thoughts on a date. Once we get a handful of suggestions I will put a poll together.

    Who else lives locally? @Wallew do you have the old thread? Maybe we tag all those folks. Would love to see @Flowers join too.

    By the way, if we get details on Bally's deal closing date, we could potentially meet there as a way to give it the good old good bye

    Not a bad idea. Even though she is a run down shell of the glory days, I’m going to miss the old girl.

    He gave the first post a like. Don’t worry, I’m sure he will be at the meet up.

    Once we get a reopening date for AC this meet up will pick up steam. It’s just hard for anyone to plan a trip right now.

    This year Mrs Wallew will definitely be in attendance after she missed out last year. We ended up having a family party get planned for the same day as the meetup and Mrs Wallew took one for the team and stayed with the kids while I came to the meet up.

    I'm sorry! I'm temporarily booked at Ceasar's AC for July 4th. I can't wait to go to Gordon Ramsey Pub...that scotch egg!

    Hey. It is what it is. . . I thought about AC but 99% of the time I go there by bus. I am even LESS thrilled about the idea of being on a bus to AC than I am being on a long flight to Vegas. Maybe I'll get the train. That probably would be better!

    I feel the same way. I'm more likely to take a flight to Vegas before getting on a bus to AC.

    Haha I'd offer to pick you up, but not sure you'd wanna be hostage in a 2 hour car ride. Well, I always do make one pitstop at the parkway gas station

    Thank you for the offer :) but my guess is I will probably take the train. That's crowded too but I'd try and go at an odd time (not rush hour on a Friday) and it should be fine.

    Hope to finally meet you if I make it to AC that weekend. I do love AC, especially in the summer. Nothing like it.
