    Last year we talked about the possibility of a Las Vegas Roadtrip for one of the away games which would include watching the Chargers game at "Michaels Pub", owned by a diehard Chargers fan. I've never met the guy but am told he goes to all of the home games and hosts parties at his pub for all of the away games. Those who have met him say he's a really nice guy. :icon_toast:

    LV Bolt Fan, who lives in LV and attends most, if not all, of the away games at Michael's has agreed to help coordinate this Get Together on his end. This pub gets pretty busy with Bolt Fan for the Chargers games and you have to get to the pub fairly early if you have a big party and want good seats.

    We need to determine how many people are interested this trip and what game they'd like to see. The Green Bay game is out because LVBF will be in Green Bay for that game.

    Well, what do you think?

    Make sure not to do it for the Oct Broncos game because that is when BOLT PRIDE is having theirs...

    I will do it if it's not in November as I will be getting barrelled in 80 degree water in Costa Rica for two weeks at the end of that month. :icon_banana:

    No, I think what Drunk (not EC, oops) meant was the Bolt Pride Posse would be in VEGAS for the Denver game. If you don't mind hanging with those dudes (I have no problem) then Denver is still doable.

    Oh you guys... How about 12/30 for the Oakland game? Spend the NYs in Vegas... :tup:

    OK, he's my pick... but as always, I'll go with the concensus..Oakland 12/30

    Hey, LLV people. Think about all the bowl games you can bet on!!!! :lol:

    You're right and I think there would be too many people at Michael's if we all tried packing in there for the Denver game. :(

    RTL. The Oakland game is actually 12/30.... Hmmmm... I'm starting to like that idea...

    Hey, 12/30 is also Trumpie's birthday... Wouldn't that be cool to have the Get Together at Michael's for the game, then celebrate Trumpie's birthday...

    OK, I'll stop getting ahead of myself already... :lol:

    Is it really that bad, even if someone plans ahead?

    Well, what happens is that all the hotels make you book for either a 2 or 3 night minimum due to the holiday at a higher rate than normal. It will be worse because 28-31 are Fri-Mon. It never hurts to try, but I'd say it's gonna be the hardest weekend of the seaosn to go.

    I have a timeshare in LV that I managed to get into a few years ago for New Year on a last minute cancellation by another owner and I jumped on it. And it was like controlled chaos in LV for NYs.

    Well, let's keep talking about this trip and see what everyone else thinks... Many people may already have their plans for NYs anyway...

    I do think that games in our division would be more fun for the LV Get Together, so if Oakland is out, there is always KC :icon_shrug:

    Hmm. With Thanksgiving being early this year, 11/22, the KC game falls far enough away from both holidays to be an option for more people.

    Hmmm :tup:

    That's been discussed but the interest, up until this point, hasn't been all the big... :icon_shrug:

    I'll go to the Oak game, but only with a large group of people.

    I'll tell you what, I won't "stay" anywhere near Oakland. I'd rather get a room across the bridge or down in San Jose.

    I just checked on my timeshare, I might be able to get a 3 br condo on Dec 1st. Could be sweet. I gotta talk this over with the wife when she gets home in an hour.
