The details so far
- As of Sept. 19th at 12:10AM, there are twenty people confirmed for attendance at this meetup.
- There is a Yahoo! Groups mailinglist for organizing last minute details and exchanging contact info for when we're there. Please email kmellis if you'd like to be invited to the list.
- There is currently no one organizing rooms for Mecha Vegas. Several people are staying at the Barbary Coast. Several others are staying at the Gold Coast, which happens to be the sister property of the Gold Coast. There is a shuttle running between the two.
- jonmc and pips are getting married at 9:30 p.m. on Saturday 9/23 at the Graceland Chapel. All are invited and encouraged to attend (Elvis will be there!). The post-wedding party will take place at the Carnaval Court "FLAIR BAR" and Grill located at Harrahs on the strip around 10 p.m. (note: there is a $7m/3f cover charge after 9pm)
- Some events have already been suggested. The first is to set an informal, regular meetup happy hour at the Barbary Coast main bar between 4 and 5 pm, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. The second is to organize a group to trek over to the Manhattan Express roller coaster right after the wedding and before it closes at midnight. ThePinkSuperhero and stynxno will be going indoor skydiving on Saturday, 9/23 at 10 a.m.; all are invited to join us there.
- kmellis/EB's name is Keith Ellis. I'll be at the Barbary Coast. My cell is 505-453-0532. For other information of this sort, see the mailinglist mentioned above.
