    I imagine most will be on the Internet in one way, form, or fashion. (i.e. Wireless laptop, cellphone, etc.) How about an itinerary page? Something with the comings and goings of the day?
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Sure, why not? And, there's a Pete Willcox (Elvis) show at 4 anyway, so those who are already there can watch him while we wait!

    Good grief!! You mean I'm going to be sitting in the the lounge at 10am on Friday with no one to talk to but mr. gracie. Check-in isn't until 3, earlier if we're lucky, but I imagine mr. gracie and I will be pretty loaded by 4. I'm up for watching BB Friday night as long as Janelle is still in the hunt for the prize. If she loses HOH on Tuesday, I'm with the party crowd.

    I'm arriving about 11am, I think. Should be at the Sahara by 12, latest. I have to leave again around 2, and won't be back until maybe 3:30ish or so.

    The lounge is kind of smallish, and I would recommend that if Pete Willcox is performing, we do our meet and greets outside the lounge area, so as not to disturb those actually watching the show (so as not to be rude to those who are actually watching). Maybe move to the bar to do those things, and those who want to watch Pete instead can meet up with everyone after the show.

    The plan sounds great so far, SueEllen and I land in Vegas at 5 so we should be to the Sahara right after that. We may not get to the lounge/bar till around 6, I hope people don't mind waiting or we can call you or I can leave my cell number with someone to let me know what you are all up to.

    So is the bar separate from the Casbah Lounge? Or is it sort of part of it? I've never been there.

    4 or 5 sounds good to me. I should be in town by then. I am planning on leaving my house around 7am so I should be in Vegas by 1 pm.

    The bar is separate, and just outside (and to the left of) the lounge.

    The lounge is just a stage and a seating area for around 40-50 people, with some curtains separating it from the rest of the casino.

    When you walk into the Sahara, if you go straight ahead, you can't miss the lounge.

    To all my fellow FORTERS going to fortcon, If I don't get in here to wish you all a good fun trip.... Picture yourself if you can at the old Sands Hotel - 1967....The star of our show direct from the bar, DEAN MARTIN... (Hello Dolly playing)

    Hello Vegas, yeah Hello Vegas, may I state it’s great to be here for this date, I brought some cheer with me, my wife’s here with me, which means I can’t cheat until she leaves but……… it can wait. The gals are all ready and one is my real real steady and she just told me she’s 2 months overdue, but that is how life is, wait until she finds out my wife is…. Outside of that there’s really nothing new.

    Dean Martin: No but you can pour it..

    I did just what you said, gabriel, I did just what you said, but it didn't work.

    I pictured myself at the Sands Hotel - 1967 . . . but then the cops hauled my scrawny butt right out of there -- um, because I'm 4!!!!

    On a more serious note, I wish like crazy that you were joining us this coming weekend!!! I love the Dean Martin visual, and I had YOU, gabriel, on my mind this evening 'cause I had dinner at the very first restaurant that I ever visited in my life (my parents took us there when I was 3 to teach us kids our "restaurant manners" and the place is still around, all these years later!) and there was Dean Martin music playing in the background.

    Yeah, I do wish you'd be joining us!!!
