Went to Charlotte today to see Leo. He had a really cool watch for me, so now I can double wrist with Ernst Benz at the GTG next year.

Very nice. What is the watch in the picture where you and a salesman are standing. The watch is way to little for my eyes!

Yes. Chad was wearing a Benz watch in Vegas, and now bought another one. Leonid (company's President) always wear two, one in each wrist; so now Chad can join.

I accidentally posted the same watch pic twice and didnít see how to delete one in the edit section, so itís my fault for the confusion.

I'm in for two.....NRDs at WISCON 2019, that is ......not two watches at a time....although I find it intriguing. That way you don't need a world timer.

Contact Gerardo for details. All I can tell you is that it's top notch and Gerardo goes all out. He will also provide Speedos for next year's anniversary pool party. It's mandatory attendance and Gerardo can fill you in on that detail as well.

It was a last minute deal. Was going to go today, but forgot about a graduation party.

There is no Ďofficialí hotel. We are trying to get a corporate rate but in Las Vegas anything under 200 rooms is a Ďsmall groupí; still trying...

What we have done is that everyone stays at their hotel of preference; some like a special brand, others use points/miles or credit card benefits...

No joke signing up last yr I didnít know if I was signing up for a watch get together or a meat slinging event with all the speedo talk. I bit my bottom lip and bought a plane ticket anyways....no speedos in sight. Saw some 70 yr old ladyís milk utters at the Wynn Euro pool tho, when she walked those soggy doggs slapped off her knee caps like the shammy slaps the front windshield at the car wash.
