    Yes, I stayed there last month and was quite disappointed they were gone. I still like the Cromwell, rooms are small but nice.

    Dang it - just saw this - I don't get into Vegas until late on the 8th!
    Can't believe I am missing this. Would love to see some of the folks
    I haven't seen in awhile. I hope that you all have a wonderful time - I
    am so sad I am not getting in earlier. I had the early flight booked and
    typical of my last few trips - got an unsolicited schedule change and now
    I don't get in until late. I checked back again and again - other flights are all booked of course.
    Wow I hate to miss this. I hope you win big and have so much fun.

    Hey everyone, we are less than a few weeks away now, and looks like we have a good sized crowd showing up!

    A few thoughts- let me know your feedback on this:

    - For meet-up, let's try and aim for 2:00-3:00 at Chandelier.

    - Firm start on the Group Play at 3:00, no late add ins once play has started?

    - Please arrive with $200 Tito ready to go at Chandelier meet.

    - We can play one of two ways....

    1) All or nothing, we play until all buy in is spent (including small wins), only hand pays set aside for reimbursement to players. More play, but potential for all $$ gone.

    2) Play money through once, and any wins refunded back at the end. With this I would suggest we determine number of spins per game (say 20) X total bet...ie, $15 per spin x 20 spins, uses $300 of total bankroll. After 20 spins, cash out winnings and change to new game. If next game is $25 per spin, then 20 spins would use $500 more of initial bankroll, cash out any wins. Next game is $20 X 20 spins = $400 of bankroll, cash out after it was played etc until all initial buy in is exhausted. Still get play, but some return on buy-in even if no handpays.

    - Who spins/Which card/Taxation- Preference will always be given if there is a foreign player with a tax treaty, otherwise I think it's best to determine at time of event. I know some players may have larger losses already for the year and are willing to set a limit on how much they will cover etc so we can see if anyone who arrives is interested in getting the points benefit for that trade off.

    Any other suggestions welcome, let me know your thoughts!

    Everything sounds good as far as meetup time, no late entries, etc.

    As far as how we play, the degen in me says go big or go home (I have some losses from our last trip to make up!) but @MrsPTD and I will go with what everyone else prefers to do.

    Regarding the points and taxes, it would be great if we have someone that doesn't need to have taxes withheld of course. I'm flexible here too!

    Really looking forward to it, barely over two weeks away now!

    Meet up time, start time, no late entries and have TITO ready all sound good. Sure hope we have someone show up that is tax exempt! Since this is my (our - my sister will be with me) first group meeting I will defer to the majority on which way to play.

    Is there a way to get a table or two reserved at one of the levels on Chandelier or is that not necessary?

    I just texted with Kevin on this, he figures space shouldn’t be an issue that time of day. Is level 1.5 open at that time? I bet we’d have more available space up there as a meeting point.

    I feel like I've seen people on 1.5 in the afternoon but keeping track of time is hard in Vegas lol. Just plan on meeting there and we can switch if needed?

    Hi

    I’m good with the time frames and everything. I’ll
    Go with the group preference but my preference for the pull is option 2 (pay back all wins and just play base buy in through). Looking forward to it!

    With the help of @IrishDave, we did some checking around with options. Level 1.5 doesn't open until later. The only option for reserved table is at Vesper, but comes with a minimum drink purchase of $45pp, min 15 people, 50% deposit etc etc.

    I think we should just go with taking our chances with the main floor on Chandelier, easy to transition onto casino floor after for the pull.

    If there are any seats when the first ones arrive, maybe grab what you can.

    Sound okay for everyone?

    At that hour on a non-event weekend, and given how big those couches/tables are, that sounds like it should work. If we're figuring 20+ people that'd be one thing, but I highly doubt we'd have an issue there.

    Well I'm pretty sure we are at around 20 now, and it's a Million dollar points event weekend at Cosmo.....I'm thinking it's going to be busy so not sure we can escape the crowds there that weekend! The more the merrier, right?o_O

    That's very useful information about minimums and deposits.

    it's too bad Clique doesn't open until 4:00pm because it would be empty and you could just walk in at that time of day and stake out a spot and have plenty of room without making a reservation. You could try that at Vesper, but there might be people already in the seating area that would be best for a group.

    ETA: It's weird that the website says Clique only opens at 4:00pm. I know I sat at the bar in there around noon a couple of trips ago while waiting for my room. They must have either cut back their hours or don't have CWs until 4:00.

    We'll figure it out and yes, the more the merrier.

    Only two weeks!

    Sounds fun, can't wait to see everyone. I'll be happy to record the group pull and anyone who doesn't want to be captured on camera just be sure to tell me before I start recording and I'll make sure you aren't in it. I actually prefer the drink menu on the main floor of Chandelier these days to 1.5 and I think it's likely we will be able to get a table since it will be in the afternoon.
