Alright, the time has come...
Let's nail down some potential dates for Vegas. The following is a list of what is definite:
1.) Booking as early as possible offers better rates;
2.) We'd like to make it a "majority rules" regarding choosing dates to accommodate the greatest number of people;
3.) We all agree that we all deserve this!!!!!

So, with that stated, we need a virtual "show of hands" for the following potential dates:

Oct. 15-18
Oct. 25-28
Nov. 3-6
Nov. 12-15

This would be a great chance to actually MEET the people we all truly already KNOW!

Take care everyone!

Oct. 25 - 28 is a good date for me, however what ever the majority says I will fit into my calendar.

As you said Stacy, the earlier we book the better the rates. If we can get several commitments for rooms, we might get a better break, however deposits will have to be made.

I'm ready - tell me when and I'll pack my bags.

hey stace,

I vote the october dates. Getting into november is too close to the start of the holiday season and craziness.

Can't believe I am actually planning on going to VEGAS! (eeeew) but when Art said I should go I really thought about it. I REALLY REALLY REALLY would LOVE to meet y'all and I'll just try to ignore the glitz and glitter and neon overload! haha!

so that's my vote.

peace, emily who loves a party!

We might do some experimental booking on the travel websites to see which date comes up with the best rates..it might depend upon what is going on on those dates..and, they might do a group discount(?)
I say the earlier the better-all dates are OK for me..

Hi Everyone,

The October dates work the best for us. October 25-28 is a Tuesday- Friday. After an hour or so the other day checking room rates at many of the hotels on the strip the weekdays are much cheaper, but still higher then the summer rates. So let's narrow down a date... The sooner we can book our airline seats the better connections we can get coming from eastern Canada. I hate red eye flights.

Hmmm... Vegas and good people... Does it get any better??? I would LOVE to come and promise to behave myself! I vote for the October dates, November means almost December which means almost finals... Argh! Could I be already stressing?

I bet with Kerry's knowledge of Vegas and a set date with several commitments, we could get discount rates at a hotel. I say stay away from Halloween and October 15th (Canadian holiday). How bout the weekend of Oct. 21st or October 7th? I will be willing to make a deposit if that helps with everyone's rates.

PS. I found a local health food store/restaurant in Vegas, so BEWARE. You may all have to taste a sample of carrot juice.
