I thought I'd throw up a post to let anyone who's interested in on our Vegas boarding/Gambling trip.

So far we have nine guys and two boats. We plan on riding on Lake Mead both days.

Mike,

We're flying down, and meeting up with our Buddy Scott. He moved to Vegas recently, and works at the MGM now.

Scott has a boat, and Steve AZ and his buddy Chris are driving up from Az with his boat. Scott is going to talk to the Tige dealer down there to see if he's interested in meeting us at the lake as well.

Hey Danny, Chris probably won't be able to make it, I'm thinkin I'll go up Friday morning and return Saturday night. Let me know if you're interested in a ride.

Steve

BTW, Matt, you wouldn't by chance have an extra spot on the lot that's secured for Friday night would ya, I promise it'll play nicely with the Tige's

For anyone who didn't see the dates, they are Feb 27th and 28th.

Scotty,

Jonathan,

Another boat would be great if your down.

Trav,Kara

Are you guys in?

Sean?

Otis?

Hahn?

Brent?

I'll find out about a discount at the MGM if not it would be cheaper to stay out by me at one of the Station Casinos, and more convienent.
Old    Brent H (captainfreedom)      Join Date: Apr 2002       01-06-2004, 9:36 AM Reply   
I'm still recovering from my trip 2 weeks ago out there. I was sick for a week when I got back, so I am probably out for that trip. Something about thinking I am still 21 and trying to pull all nighters just doesn't work anymore. Oh yeah, I'll be in Maui at that same time anyways. Sounds like fun! The Station Casinos are cool. I like the one out in Henderson.

Hmmmmmm...this sounds very tempting. If I towed the boat, would there be a safe place to park it? If not, would someone have room for one or two more?
Old    stevenf            01-06-2004, 10:27 AM Reply   
hey westcoasters im down for coming if someone has room for 2 ill fly myself and my girlfriend there for the occasion. I would bring my boat but the haul from texass would be a beeotch so if someones got room and can stop by the airport let me know


steven

Gee, that would be a nice birthday present from Trav. Hint, Hint!!!

We most likely won't be able to make it. To much going on at that time. Would be nice to get away though!!

Do you guys think you will be above the 100 degree combined rule?
Old    Cliff Griffin (seattle)      Join Date: Mar 2002       01-07-2004, 12:21 PM Reply   
Chris,

from what I've been told, the water/air temps are about equal by early March.

Up here in Seattle we have to go with the 80 degree rule, if we want to ride in the winter. I see Christie's group is in the same predicament as far as inclement weather riding. Unless it's pouring down rain or white caps, we're riding .

Christie,

I talked to Steve Jenkins yesterday. He mentioned Chris and Leslie. Maybe you could get them to come as well.
Old    CAwakesk8r (hatepwcs)      Join Date: Mar 2002       01-07-2004, 12:31 PM Reply   
I'm going to come if forecast for air is 70 or better. Sometimes End of Feb early Mar reach into the 80's. Water will probabaly be low 50's.

Anyone in So CA that wants to go and can contribute to truck and boat gas, drop me a line. I can Camp or hotel. I have complete camping gear and would rather camp but will go with the flow.

Steve Az- If I can make it, first round is on me.

There's little doubt you'd be over the 100 degree rule. I live about 75 miles away from lake Mead. keeep in touch, I'd be willing to come down to board. The water temp will likely be 50's or better. Air temp today is going to be 60 degrees. If you dress right, it's very comfy. Send me a reminder as it gets closer and I'll see if i can come (with my Tige 21V).

The only problem I see on my end is I am going to be in Vegas the weekend before for a wedding. It would be a quick turn around, wish I could stay the week. But let me talk to my crew and see if I can ralley them up. I am sure I will have room for a couple people when I get there. I can probably get 2 or 3 people to go.

Talltigeguy,

We'll definitely get a hold of you as the dates draw closer.

Jonathan,

If your like me, you'll be such a pest to your friends, that they'll commit just to shut you up.

VEGAS, VEGAS, VEGAS!!!

Christie,

You have to go. Who will hook us up with jello shots and stylie face plants if you don't?

Chris, and Zee,

The force is strong. You can't deny the "Dark Side".

Sean, and Ottis,

What's up?

Hahn,

And I thought you were "Money"

Vegas, and wakeboarding, it just don't get better than that people.

Ok,

For anyone interested in this trip, we will be staying off the strip in Henderson at Sunset Station Casino. The hotel is very nice, with very reasonable rates, and is located mid point from the lake and the strip.

For those who want to bring their boats, Scott has a large secured area that will accomidate as many spaces as needed at his condo about a mile away from the hotel.

Steve from Texas-- Maybe we could split rental car expenses or something. Maybe if there were two of us we could get someone to pick us up if we flew in at the same time.

Cliff are you renting a car? When are you flying in?

I could be game for this if I am all studied up for my exams.
I may get into trouble BUT it will be fun trouble.
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Isn't that what guys always say? hehe

steven and butterfly,

my girlfriend and i will be coming out for this shinding (from l.a.), and thinking of flying, tho we may just drive out. if we do fly, we will also need a way to get out to the lake from vegas. perhaps we could all go in on a car.

Flight and hotel reservations are set. Brad and I will be flying in on Thursday night.

Scotty D make sure you order up some butta and warm weather for us. It will sure be nice to ride with out needing gloves for a change!

Looks like its shaping up to be a good tip. Can't wait!

Everything is set for me as well. I'm driving out Friday morning with the boat and plan on leaving Monday morning.

It will be nice to put some more faces with names! Looking forward to meeting you all and seeing some old friends again. Three weeks cannot come soon enough!

I stayed at Henderson Station and they were good at watching my boat for me. And you can park and see it easy.

Weather has been a little cold this week, but so is everywhere else. Water temp is 50', water level is low, but it's a big lake.
Cheryl will launch at the Lake Mead Marina, the 2nd launch after you enter the state park off Lake Mead Drive

Any thought to going out of Calville and then through the narrows to the overton arm? In case of high winds.
