Alright, the moment you've all been waiting for......

The dates for the SEMI COLON CONVENTION are officially October 25-28. I really hope that works for a great number of people.

Now...hotel suggestions? Do we want a place with all the "bells & whistles" or a place to simply "hold our stuff while we're out having fun"? Maybe somewhere inbetween? I was thinking Monte Carlo? Open to suggestions...

Pretty excited!

Hi Stacy,

I vote for some place that is convenient to all major casinos and on the strip - Paris is nice or Bally. Sometimes they give good discounts when you reserve a block of rooms - then give everyone the information and we can call and give our credit card to hold the room. Monte Carlo sounds fine - where is it located on the strip?

Can't wait - it will be so much fun!

Hi there,

First off, thanks for doing a lot of organizing! I'll throw my hat in for at least a mid-raange......I am a bit clueless about pricing, but a lot of the hotels have become sort-of resort-ish with fun pools and some spa stuff and great food - casual to upscale. And I would imagine shows, casinos to boot.
What is the Monte Carlo like? Sounds fun. Can you fill us in?
Cheers, Maura

Stacy...I just applied for an overnight return trip on Concorde but they told me there is a surcharge on motorcycles that would break my bank account.

One caution, everyone...

The Pro Bull Riders (PBR) National Finals will be at Mandalay Bay Resort (on the strip?) starting on the 28th - CAMaura and I already have tickets! - be sure that wherever we book we book EARLY! There will be a BIG crowd in town - if you're into cowboy fun, stay an extra night or two and bring along your boots and Stetson!! Yeee-Haaaw

Why not tell them we are all high-rollers, and that we are bringing a celebrity-(Sponge Bob) and get a room comp..?

Yeah - watch 'em comp us a room in the middle of the big aquarium in the dining room...

Although, Bud, I'm sure you and I wouldn't mind getting squeezed onto a cot in with the floor show girls!
