    Well @Texaschameleon repping the South and me, @ttaylor001 repping the Great White North are going to combine for a joint trip report. I will provide my details and @Texaschameleon can provide details on her trip.

    I arrive Nov 26, Tuesday for one quick night at Vdara. I chose that hotel as I have never stayed and like trying a new hotel when I can. The rest of the trip, 5 nights, will be at the Cosmo. I am going to be joined by my Dad (Big D) on Wednesday night and this wife P will follow on Thursday night which will give Big D one night to have fun and get into trouble before his wife arrives!

    I have to start this report now as I am not going to have much time before I leave on Tuesday to report anything due to work being incredibly busy.

    This is a low rolling trip for me as I also have the Superbowl trip coming up, so we shall see if I can show restraint and lower my bets on the slots. Plans include the group slot pull with @KingJasonSlots on Saturday, many great meals, lots of time at the Cosmo Sportsbook, lots of tables games and low rolling slotting around. I may not leave the Cosmo for a couple of days as it looks like rain Wed/Thur and that is perfectly fine to me. If Vesper reopens during my visit, I am going to have a glass of champagne for @claired67....the website says currently closed though. I also want to go have a drink at the ice rink...as I have never done that and still haven't been to the Barbershop either so lots of things at the Cosmo to do if its raining.

    The hopes with @Texaschameleon and I doing a joint report is that we will have more content by combining our trips as I tend to get preoccupied with the gambling and forget to post. Of course, hoping to spend some slotting time with my Southern friend and have many drinks and good laughs.

    If anyone from the board is in town during our trips, stop by and say hi. I can always be found in the morning at the Sportsbook drinking mimosas and playing 4 card keno.

    You know you're Canadian if:

    2. You understand the sentence, "Could you please pass me a serviette, I just spilled my poutine."
    3. You eat chocolate bars instead of candy bars.
    4. You drink pop, not soda.
    5. You know what it means to be on pogey.
    6. You know that a mickey and 2-4's mean "Party at the camp, eh?!"
    7. You can drink legally while still a teen.
    8. You get milk in bags as well as cartons and plastic jugs.
    9. You have Canadian Tire money in your kitchen drawers
    10. You know that Mounties "don't always look like that."

    12. You know that the Friendly Giant isn't a vegetable product line.
    13. You know that Casey and Finnegan are not a Celtic musical group.
    14. You wonder why there isn't a 5 dollar coin yet.
    15. You use a red pen on your non-Canadian textbooks and fill in the missing 'u's from labor, honor, and color.
    16. You know the French equivalents of "free", "prize", and "no sugar added", thanks to your extensive education in bilingual cereal packaging.
    17. You are excited whenever an American television show mentions Canada.
    18. You know what a toque is.
    19. You know Toronto is not a province.
    20. Back bacon and Kraft Dinner are two of your favourite food groups.

    Hope to run into you. I'm also at Cosmo from November 27, and will be doing the King Jason slot pull on Sat. Despite the weather, hoping to get out of Cosmo for a bit.

    Have fun and good luck.

    Hey Fanatics.....so excited to do a TR with my friend from the great white North. Since we tend to get distracted by slotting, sparklie things (Chandelier bar) and other machines that make beautiful dinging sounds we thought it best to work together and motivate each other to keep you up to date.

    I am a Director of Corporate Catering and events so this time of year is full of 12-14 hour days so this trip is soooooo exciting to me as Vegas is my happy place.

    I leave on Wed straight from work...fingers crossed no delays. I will be staying at Cosmo Wednesday and Thursday before heading to Palazzo for Grazie Gifts. I will be taking the red eye back Monday at 1:00 and going straight to work....crazy I know but don't want to miss a moment.

    I will be coming back to Cosmo on the 30th to help with his first slot pull so everyone feel free to stop by for one of his new wristbands. He's a genuinely nice person and I enjoy supporting him.

    Will post more in the upcoming days but promise to do better than last time on my trip report with Tamara's help...

    Let the shenanigans begin...

    You know own you are from the South if:

    1. Everyone is known as Ya'Lloyd

    2. You say yes ma'am and yes sir or no ma'am and no sir to answer anyone even if they are younger

    3. You are fixin' to do something when you are getting ready to do that thing

    4. You say hello and talk to everyone whether you know them or not

    5. Piddling is a small win....and not what you are thinking

    6. You know what a June bug is

    7. Anything that you can't remember the name of is a Doohickey

    I am certain that although we speak a different language that @ttaylor001 and I will make it through the weekend...

    I too have to say that @KingJasonSlots seems like a great guy and I can't wait to meet him in person.

    @emmas please search me out. I will try to post my whereabouts so we can try to meet prior to the slot pull. Best Riches to you as well.

    I think this is fixin' (see what I did there) to be a great trip!

    I'm fixing to finish laundry and pack so that I am not all stressed out trying to do it the night before. All over the Internet there are stories of how bad the flights will be delayed due to the winter storms.

    @ttaylor001 and @emmas there is a small pizza and champagne reception after the group pull so would be a great time to meet.

    @ttaylor001 I'll holler (oh my can't believe I just wrote that) at you as soon as I get in.

    What time is the slot pull @Texaschameleon - If I recall it was in the early afternoon - probably too early for us to join but would love to say hello to everyone.

    @Pleasemum looking forward to meeting you also. I think we may have almost met another trip, so looking forward to actually making that happen this trip. It seems like it may be busier over Thanksgiving this year than last. It was rather quiet last year. It seems there are several fanatics in town!

    Good luck and have fun! Left $ at Cosmo for you. BTW, looks like you might need to pack a parka if you are going out as it looks like it is going to get cold here.
