what does everyone want to do at nights..? everyone usually just does whatever they want since its vegas. ideally, lets do all events on Saturday. events will include circle, request, rip n run, mirage race.

I figure we will start around 12 noon on UNLV campus on the north side of the student union. i believe parking is free on saturdays and sundays.

I want to busk on Sunday. on the strip or on fremont from late day til night. i'll figure around 2pm.

also, please let me know if i'm forgetting anyone on the attendance list. I want to have it up to date

Things to do at night:

:arrow: Play Black Jack at a few casinos. That is usually the only game I play. At Harrah's I made $40.
:arrow: Wouldn't mind playing some craps/roulette. I need someone teaching me how to play.
:arrow: I am down for video blackjack at that one awesome bar we went to. Those drinks that bartender made were insane.
:arrow: Poker night would be awesome. I plan on being drunk at some point on the strip.
:arrow: Never been to a strip club, probably won't plan on going to one. Seems weird. Is is legal to fap in public in Vegas :lol:
:arrow: Footbagging on the strip at night. I would love some night footage!

Im an expert at craps, it real simple- passline + max odds = best bet in the house unless you card count effectively. The best part about craps is the whole table wins at once so everyone starts yelling in joy and its alot of fun. My approx odds at leaving with profit or broke is 50/50.
Id also like to take a helicopter tour ride, and possibly fish at lake Mead prior or after the event. Poker would be fun but I think vegas casino is the worst place. Those guys are making a living taking $$$ off people/ if we do poker lets do it at Evans place or someones hotel room amongst ourselves.

I think Busking at night makes more sense, in the day people can shred and the casino interior has no day or night so gambling is good for daytime too.
At night we should go to strip clubs, and busk on the streets for the drunk tourists :twisted:

Unless you want to do the whole event on the street busking style... I like that idea. I liked worlds 2004 where we shredded all week at the fountain.

Yes I agree. Poker night should NOT be at a casino.

I am down to play craps.

I like helicopters. They also have gun ranges with machine guns in Vegas.

Hey Cory you won't get kicked out of casinos this time. Just get a thing around your neck to hold your ID, Mathieu too, cause they'll card you guys all the time :-P

If I do come I will make sure to get arrested. I'm still looking for cheap airfare but I most likely won't be coming.

I've been slacking on making plans for this, but is anyone else still looking for a room to share? I'll go ahead and reserve one if there are a couple others to split it with. This is for Friday and Saturday night.

Otherwise I'll just ask around and worm my way into another group.

Reply via PM please.

A couple of things:

I will donate to the Evan Gatesman fund.

I will donate to the BrianBear fund for Footbags.

I am assuming there will be Routines, sick 3, and what else should we expect/get ready for?

The first flights on Friday are at 8:47, 9:51, 11:03, and 11:34 am. Thursday I work from 10:30 am - 2:00 am, so I might take the 11:03 flight, but will probably end up taking the 9:51 arrival flight.

What time are people leaving Excalibur to the Jam? Rides? I can hide in the tires if it comes to it (lame Brazilian joke).

I read through this and realized that spring break starts that following Monday for me, which means I can possibly stay all night Sunday night and leave Monday, or Tuesday, or Wednesday. Honestly I should probably head back Monday afternoon.

Looking forward to the hotel of 4 dudes:

2 quick suggestions for mirage race:

:arrow: shorter distance
:arrow: 3 drops and you're out

I think those would make it more fun/faster.

I also vote for some 4square.

4 Sqaure: YES!

Mirage Race: Sounds like fun.

No routines? Is that what defines a Jam, or are routines just a pain and a crowd pleaser?
