Same.

Especially because I've been trying to hold off on any new watches until this happens lest I make some bad decisions in Vegas :). Harder by the day!

The training varies, but the attire worn during training is constant:

Happy Socks and Speedos

This plus a generous amount of the below should get you started.
According to Chad you might want to train indoors or else your neighbors might call the police.

A personal challenge: make it BETTER. So planning starts now! (actually, it started last week )

Based on comments, I think the NRD is something that should be put in place to cover for expenses and no shows (we did have some no shows this year); as it is my neck on the line with arrangements and some expenses.

I received from several WISCON attendees a good suggestion: to raise NRD to $150 per person, INCLUDES Friday dinner (drinks, taxes and gratuity are individual responsibility; NRD via PayPal under e-mail: info@aboutlife.club).

We will have to cap it for '18 as well to provide a top quality event, so we will have limited seating.

See you again on FRIDAY, APRIL 27 and SATURDAY APRIL 28, 2018!
...Would if I could...but can't do it..!!

On a completely different subject....

Anybody got any good deals on hotels in Vegas that weekend? I have been looking, I'd like something on the strip, but anything more then a reasonable amount per night charge is listed on Bed Bugs.com as a horror zone! Please let me know if you have a good deal/know someone/feel like treating me to a free room because I'm such a nice guy.

Hello Paul. I suggest visiting www.vegas.com, log in arrival and departure date, the website will give you (lower left corner) the nightly price for ALL hotels.

I sit at my computer and think about Vegas. That's the extent of my training. Plus an occasional single malt helps.

Thanks G! Just booked an incredible deal, slightly off the strip but a nice place and fantastic price!

I wonder why they said bring a sleeping bag?
