Thank you to everyone interested! As we commented, and to be respectful of members that had committed to Vegas WIS CON 2017, only TRFers and companions with paid NRD will receive the agenda and will have confirmed seating. Some names are not on the list as they are surprise guests.

I will be updating on VERY exciting news as I receive them...trust me, this WILL be fun!

I visited the Tudor Boutique at The Venetian on Monday, and Stacy at Tudor said to say hi to you Ed!

For anyone interested. We are going to Speed Vegas to track some cars https://speedvegas.com/en/

If a few people want to come, we can get a group deal. Let me know if anyone is interested. We will be in town Wed to Wed and not sure of a date yet.

IS IT SAFE......that Jocke and Paul are meeting for the first time?

Will there be some type of vortex, black hole or "don't cross the streams" Ghostbusters event when these two meet in the flesh?

Will Vegas ever be the same again? Is Nellis AFB on alert? Will this create a giant Stay Puft marshmallow man lumbering down the Vegas strip?

Can't wait till April!
