    I’ll be coming from Orange County, California.

    I’ll be driving a rented car.   Does anyone want to come with me?Report

  3. Tod Kelly says:

    Anyone flying in on Friday that wants to share a cab or car, let us know.

    Also, for those that are Vegas regulars, any suggestions for daytime activities, in or out of the city?Report

    Come on people! Make this happen! Come to Las Vegas!Report

      I was on hiatus when this was being planned, and since one of the things I hate most in the world are people who don’t pitch in and then complain about the result, I won’t do that.  But, simply as an explanation, on Memorial Day weekend the kids are all home and the family’s together.  Not a time I can get away, even for something as fun as this sounds.Report

      I would love to be there. However i have a bike trip to Europe in  a couple days and we are going back east for two weeks in june so it didn’t seem wise to spend more money. That’s the best excuse i got. I do like Vegas though even though i don’t really gamble. I hope it goes well and there is another one. You live stream an event so we can watch.Report

  5. I really wish I could make it. Anyone in the northeast interested in a “Leaguefest East” for sometime toward the end of summer?Report

  6. Mary G says:

    What activities are planned? I am mostly concerned about how much more they will cost. Will non(alcoholic)drinkers be tolerated? (I am willing to be a designated driver, if necessary.) This is so vastly outside my comfort zone I am actually contemplating it.Report

  7. Alan Scott says:

    I would love to come, but by memorial day weekend I will be in full crisis mode for the gaming convention that I’m running.  I’m in for next year.  (And in the mean time, gaming-interested leaguers should come over to San Luis Obispo and visit my thing in late June).Report

    Burt, we shoudl probably tlak at soem point about gettin set up for soem kind of Skype-in.  I’d love to be able to drop in, even if only in a virtual sense.Report

    • Burt Likko in reply to James K says:

      Two problems need to be addressed: first, I think it’s unlikely that there will be a quiet place like a conference room available for skyping. This is intended to be a symposium in the classic sense — a social event — rather than the modern academic sense. Second, my laptop is on its last legs and I actually wasn’t even planning on bringing it. Someone can bring a better device, but it’s going to have to be someone other than me, and we’ll have to figure out where and when it can be done. Perhaps we can set aside some time in somoene’s room.

      These are problems that could probably be overcome. Please feel free to send me an email: My screen name with no spaces, [at] gmail.Report

    We’ve made reservations and I will be doing my best to improve my alcohol tolerance in the coming weeks. Look forward to meeting everybody.Report

    Burt, you should get in touch with Jason in case there’s anything you need done ahead of time. We will be in Vegas for the week in advance of the symposium, so if something desperate comes up last minute that needs personal attention we can do it. You should have our mobile numbers, and we should probably have yours.Report

    Saturday afternoon I need to go here.  Lots of us should go.Report
