    No Denny. I was thinking the same thing. We'll buy enough room make a difference.

    I will stay at the host hotel this year probably or one near by. My sis is renting out her house so can't stay there. I guess this means I can drink this year. LOL

    Ask anyone a question, they hold out their hand before answering. Card in the room, the maid expects minimum $5 per day tip, they expect you to reuse the same towels and sheets until checkout.

    At least they don't charge for the water / fountain show here at the Bellagio. Only thing I've found here that's free, no wait, the ice machine is free, I expected a $1 charge per bucket

    Now I am confused. We have a hotel arranged, but not as a group. And everyone is staying somewhere else. Hmmm

    Denny,

    Don't be too confused. The hotel listed is where Annalisa, Al, myself and some others will be staying. The only activity at the hotel is our Friday night annual "Red Cup Society" meeting.

    The difficult part in trying to negotiate a "group rate" with a loose group is what happens if the numbers aren't met, for whatever reason. Also each year many stay with friends or family in the area, or live close enough to drive in, and only come to the Saturday "convention".

    Last year the Marriott we stayed at was 100% sold out (no not by us), just a popular place. I booked real early and had a $88 rate. If I remember three weeks before the event they had raised the nighly rate on their website to $169. So, cut your own best deal with the hotel.

    Denny, the best part of the convention is the the socials. Friday night is the big night and lots of people hang around Saturday night and go home Sunday. We do.

    Walter, why don't you and Brad split a room at the hotel.

    Still working on Red Cup Social details. Might be in the lobby or maybe a meeting room, waiting for a call back. Please PM a RSVP for the Social so I have an idea on how much space will be needed.
    Remember, Annalisa, I left all of the left over booze with Al last year for "safe keeping"

    Thursday afternoon, when I arriving also, we can go shopping for the other supplies we may need.

    Guess this comment means I plan to be there!

    Let me see what I can do about a group rate...do we know how many folks are coming from out of town? They'd prefer a minimum usually.
