Chun if and only if I can. Does this by any chance happen to fall on a holiday weekend? I'm working every day 7 days a week. I can barley make it to any club meets here as it is.

I'll see what I can do though when the time is here.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
FRIDAY MAY 20TH
MEET & GREET
Meet and Greet from 3pm until 8pm in the west parking lot of the Orleans Event Center
(subject to change due to event center booking).

ROTARY SHOW

starts at 4pm until 7:30pm
Event area subject to change due to rental of the Orleans Event Center
This year a rotary show will be held in the parking area adjacent to the Meet & Greet. There will be several categories depending upon the cars registered prior to the event. Repus, old school, 7s and 8s will be judged separately. 7s may be broken up into fist, second and third gen vehicles if preregistration shows a sufficient number. All rotary cars will be eligible for trophies.

PARTY AT THE ORLEANS
Starts at 8pm until 12 midnight
The party will be in the Presidential Penthouse Suite and will be BYOB on libations with chips and dips supplied by WHiV4. The Orleans has a liquor store on site for any libation you could desire. Please be advised that you will be required to wear the ID that was issued at the Meet & Greet area

SATURDAY MAY 21
ANNUAL CRUISE
(location to be named)

NO HOST LUNCH AT THE ORLEANS
buffet

RAFFLE FOR GOODIES
(during & after lunch)

TRADITIONAL GET TOGETHER AT THE HOFFBRAU HOUSE
8pm until 11pm:
A No Host Dinner is served and prices range from $10.00 and up for traditional German faire and the beer flows at all times. A German band plays and the noise, laughing and crying from the group almost drowns out the band. If you remember in years past, parking is a problem at the Hoffbrau House so this year there will be two easy alternative ways offered to get to the Hoffbrau House. A free shuttle service will be offered by the Orleans to and from the location (tip extra). Again this year there will be Limo Service available from the Orleans to the Hoffbrau house and back again. The limo service will be $30.00 per person if paid in advance and $35.00 (tip included) after May 1,2011. There is a limit of 20 persons for the limo service. You can prepay with PayPal http://www.whathappensinvegasmeet.com/

10am until 12 noon: Scenic Cruise to a local area. (there is an small state park area entry fee)
End of WHiV4...Hope you all had a good time

Is there a reason you decided to post in the Mountain forum instead of the Gulf where you'll actually be coming from?

If you wish to be a confirmed attendee to this event and receive free rememberances, you must preregister for the hotel room or purchase a T shirt prior to the day of the event. All those preregistering or becoming confirmed prior to the event will receive additional free items the day of the event, including the traditional beer mug. See page one post one for additional information, contact your area leader or just PM "Phil's 8"

For those rotary owners that do not wish to use the Orleans Hotel or do not wish to purchase a T, you are still WELCOME.

Be sure to let me know when you reserve your room so that I can add your name to the confirmed list. Those that buy Ts in advance will be added automatically. There is a cut off day on the room special rate so you may wish to register now!!!! If you have already registered let me know as it is not easy getting a list out of the Orleans.

Thank you kind sir. All money collected from the sale of Ts and raffle tickets is spent to reimburse for purchases, expenses and for the betterment of the event.

If you register for a room at Orleans then no, you do not need to buy a T in advance. If you are using other lodging then I would appreciate the purchase of the T in advance. Purchase of the T is not a prerequisite to attendance but it does help defray the costs for all the other little things that make this event happen every year. If we figure everyone who posts is coming then only half show up we are stuck with costs based upon the projected attendance. If you purchase the T in advance then the majority of those costs are covered. If you purchase a T shirt or use Orleans for your lodging then we can figure that you are really coming and can plan accordingly. We do not receive any income or kick backs on the Hotel rooms but if you register for a room then chances are you are really going to attend and then hopefully buy a T and/or raffle tickets. The Hotel rooms are for our convenience and are what makes Orleans want to have us at their Hotel so the more we get to stay there insures that we get discount rates next year and maybe more.

Thank you to those that are PMing me with their names for the list. Please include your real first name, the real fist name of your passenger and the rotary you are going to bring (RX8 or 1st Gen 7, etc).

You will have a good time
you may not remember it , but you will have a good time.
