    Thanks Stephen. Last year I placed 2nd for 10,000 in slot credits so not thinking that lightning strikes twice but hoping to get a little something something.

    I won't know my times until Saturday since I get it. To late tomorrow to register but will keep you posted. Can you let me know if Lakeview started their happy hour back up? I used to enjoy going there. If you haven't tried Mott32 for happy hour yet, it's fabulous and such a great variety at less than half price.

    Good luck everyone!

    Haha, I hear ya, I'm constantly having to proofread my posts due to random auto-predict!
    Let us know when you find out what your tourney times are, and yes, I will check on the Lakeside HH for you. Hope you get that 10,000 again, or more!!!!

    2 sets with bags, shoes, balls, etc weighing in at 49 lbs. Spirit Airlines- your scale better agree!

    Time for sleep on what was a very long Thursday and tomorrow it will be Friday (again)!

    Good luck to those already in Vegas or arriving shortly!

    You can always drop a few lbs by taking out the extra golf balls. You only need one!

    Oh I’ve got some details....mainly that I left a good chunk of $$ behind at V/P if anyone is looking to pick some up! The slots were being tough so we decided to give a go at video poker this trip. It actually gave us quite a bit more endurance, but we had a few bitter sweet hits!

    This one really hurt.....Wrong game, like just about ANY other game! IMG_1532.JPG

    Wrong game again! IMG_1533.JPG

    Those were the painful ones, got several non premium 4oaks at $1 to even things out!

    And at the $2 level it was REALLY trying but no go on finding the 4th.....

    Also have some pics from the Venetian pool deck to share....would love to know what others think if they stop by!

    LOVE the changes, it looks beautiful, super sexy, clean and swank vibe! Like the colour scheme. Seems though that they didn’t realize how slippery the marble would be that was installed so you will see the dark blue mats in all the walk areas. The only thing I don’t like about the pool is the shade! These pics were taken at 11:30, and only one area had a sliver of sun. Not sure what part of the day, or if earlier in the year it may be better!

    Some of the cabanas have their own plunge pool....these look insane!!! Could def see getting one of these next summer!

    IMG_1465.JPG IMG_1468.JPG IMG_1464.JPG

    Although these daybeds were closed that day, the ones in the middle of the pool are first come basis without charges!

    IMG_1485.JPG IMG_1487.JPG

    I have always done Palazzo pool.....can anyone comment on sun/shade at Venetian pool? It seems to get a lot less sun? Anyway....hope the weather holds good enough for the pool this week for everyone!

    Ugh. Aces on Deuces is the absolute worst! But at least the four 2s were 400 I suppose.

    VP relatively slaughtered me at V/P. Fortunately, @Lousyatcraps and @3vees were distracting me significantly.

    Uhhhhhhh...Spirit weight limit is 40 lbs. @Mr2BOBCATS!!!!

    We were 40.4 lbs... they said we were good, they really don't start charging until 41 lbs.

    41-50 lbs. is $30 extra.

    If @Mr2BOBCATS got the works package with Spirit, he’s already prepaid to check 50 lbs.

    DTW would charge. I’ve seen many people remove stuff from checked luggage to avoid it.

    The Palazzo pool is very pretty.

    Yes @claired67 is correct. We have the bundle package with Spirit which allows the extra 10lbs on the checked bags. Our backup plan though is to stuff the balls into a carry on or personal bag if the scale at DTW is a liarface.

    Happy (actual) Friday everyone!

    That Palazzo pool area IS beautiful @VegasChic, but what were they thinking by blocking most of the sun?!?
    So sorry about the dollars lost on the gambol! Wish your stab at VP had been luckier, and the slots not cooperating? Boo! Those of us staying there (or nearby) will see if we can reclaim some of it!
