Las Vegas Gathering / Hotel Proposal
« on: November 12, 2009, 09:43:07 PM »
Below are three poposals for you consideration. Please review and post your preference below. Voting will occur for a minimum of one week to avoid rate increases which have already occured since I first enquired about rates.

Golden Nugget
August 11 - 17
       or
August 18 - 24

Wednesday and Thursday @ $55 per night
Friday and Saturday @ $95.00 per night
Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday @ $55.00 per night

Stratosphere
August 6 - 11
 
Wednesday $30.00 per night
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday @ $42.00
Sunday and Monday @ $30.00 per night

or

August 11 - 18

Wednesday @ $30.00 per night
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday @ $45.00 per night
Sunday and Monday @ $30.00 per night

Third option is to choose a hotel. Rather than holding group space, everyone would then search tour providers, such as Southwest, for a package deal from their city of departure.

Tough choice due to the 24hr beer bar and a Shark Tank Water Slide at Golden Nugget. But Stratosphere does have its "adults only" pool.

Due to the cheaper rates I'll have to go with...

STRATOSPHERE AUG. 6-11th

We stayed at Stratosphere the last time and it was fine. It also is pretty centrally located between Glitter Gulch and The Strip. There is a quaint little 50s diner inside, along with other amenities.

The price is right, too.

So, I choose The Stratosphere and Aug. 6 - 11 works for me too.

HIUGS,

I like the 8/6-8/11 dates, so Stratosphere is my vote.  These dates will allow Sid and I to celebrate our 20th on the 2nd somewhere (maybe the Grand Canyon) and then head on up to Vegas to be with you all.

I too vote for the Stratosphere, and the date doesn't matter.

This doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals,
It's just that they need more supervision.

I prefer being closer to the Strip, so that makes the Stratosphere option the better one for me.  I have stayed many times at the Golden Nugget though and have always enjoyed it.  I just love Vegas...so it really doesn't matter (and heaven knows how many years I have advocated it for one of our "gatherings.")  Either August weekend will work for me with a slight preference for the earlier one.

I cannot attend the London AMG due to work commitments in May so I want to be certain to attend this gathering.  I must admit that I really like the Blue Moon but it will not be appropriate for some of our members and it is much more important for us to be together!

Dennis... once again, my gratitude for your willingness to use your skills and connections to help coordinate these events for us.

Trying to "throw together" 3 days in Vegas before Christmas, so maybe I can scout out these options and some other attractions for us.

Perfect, absolutely perfect!!!

We have two friends (actually adopted family members) who live in Henderson and work in Las Vegas.  We like to call them our "Get out of Jail Free Cards."  Please don't ask, we won't tell.  But, they will love to meet all of you.  Barbara and Marc will have a riot with our group.

Thanks Dennis.  You have done it again!

Of course we'll be seeing both you and Miss P. in London in May. Afterall, you voted for London (twice) and Miss P once (as her final destination vote).

I'd hate to think the London Committee is planning based on those votes, only to find out members intentionally skewed the vote.

Jeez..I thought I asked you two to put each other on ignore.

Dennis we have no way of knowing for sure who will or will not make it to Vegas, people do change their minds at the last minute as we know from past experience...things change and destinations plans change as well.

I voted for London, but because of the time of year it's not possible for me to go..so does that mean I can't attend the one in Vegas just because I voted for London?...you have coordinated enough of these AMG's to know it doesn't work that way.

Dach if you are thiking of going to Vegas then that's fine, you have every right to post here..but if you are here just to wind Dennis up then please stop it now....thanks

Jan,

You know we would LOVE to see you in Vegas!  I can't make London because of the May date but I know I am free for the August dates so I will be looking forward to whatever it is we are going to officially call the Vegas gathering.  I certainly hope, and I do encourage, our members to support the London AMG and if possible to also join us in Vegas.  The Vegas hotel is the one I believe you, RAB and Aztecan stayed in a few years ago.  I have never been there (although countless trips to the city) so it will be exciting to see a new place.

Jan, I'd appreciate you also requesting that Dennis not personally bait me like he just did below.  I'm a bit flabergasted that you didn't call him out on such a blatant disregard for the rules here at AIDSmeds.  Fortunately I'm mature enough not to fall for such childish antics, but fair is fair as far as rules go.

Kindest regards,

Miss P

Glad to see something official posted!  I am going to be in Vegas next month from the 13th to the 16th...staying at the Blue Moon again.  Is there anything anyone wants me to check out for our summer gathering while I am in town, let me know. 

Will be attending the August gathering...can't get away from work for the May one.

Gary, since you are going soon, why don't you check into the possibility of finding the HIV community through the local ASO, which might also have connections in the local community for friendly places to gather together.
The Bible contains 6 admonishments to homosexuals,
and 362 to heterosexuals.
This doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals,
It's just that they need more supervision.

Hey Next, of course you can bring your friends, the more the merrier!  And I can just about guarantee you that it will be "memorable"  (snicker snicker)   :D


Dennis:  When we call the reservation # do we simply reference AMG or something specific?

Oops! Sorry. Yes, simply reference AMG Group. The official group code is C-AMG in case the reservationist has trouble locating it.

Hey Jan,

Free or discounted tickets for the monorail are in the works. I should know more in the next week or so.

The closest station to the Stratosphere is behind the Sahara Hotel, which is across the street. The monorail will take you all the way down to the MGM Mirage.

I'm sure that I don't know WHAT you are talking about.......   A little walk is always good for the soul, but if all else fails, you know I can flag down a cab for you Jan.  ;)

So can anyone fill me in on some of the structured things that take place at an AMG?  Also, what time do things get rolling on the 6th?  I am really wanting to make the trip.... If I stick to my goal and quit smoking on Feb 1 (the entire hospital campus I work at is going smokefree on March 1) I should be able to easily swing it.  Thanks for any information.

Phil,

You should definately try to make it! Boston was my first and it, for me, was a life changing experience. You might review the old Boston AMG links to get an idea of what goes on. There are a few structured activities Dennis sets up, such as scavenger hunts, side tours, etc... and the Memorial is absolutely amazing. But most of all it's the life long friends you find that make it so memorable. Such a fantastic time!


Hope to see you there!

I just want to point out the gathering in Las Vegas is not THE official AMG.

AMG will take place in London from May 20-23.

The gathering in Las Vegas is primarily for those who are unable to make it to London. Although the Las Vegas gathering is not the official AMG, one can expect the Las Vegas gathering format to be similar to past AMGs with focus on an Aids Memorial taking place early Friday and the Meet & Greet Friday evening.

All details will be posted here... http://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=30902.0 as they are finalized.

As always, input is welcome.
