Our annual gathering this year will be in Las Vegas, NV and
is scheduled for one week (Tuesday, September 21st through Monday,
September 27th, 2010). We have rented a lovely house
which is the home base for our gathering. We are still finalizing plans
but intend to take in a few sights during our visit. The following is a
tentative outline of our schedule:
September 21, we check in the house at 3:00pm. We will have dinner at
house and maybe hit the casinos for some late-night action!. Wednesday,
September 22, we will visit The Strip and take in the casinos and see the area.
September 23rd, we will take
a bus tour of the Grand Canyon and visit Hoover Dam. Those not
attending the tour may sight-see or enjoy the pool, sauna, and
entertainment room at the house.
September 24th, we will have an open
day and eat dinner at the house. Saturday,
September 25th, we will have a meal as a group where everyone is
invited to attend. We're not sure yet of location. Sunday,
September 26th, we will have an open day. Some may care to visit
the casinos on The Strip but an evening meal will be prepared at the
house for those interested. Monday,
September 27th, we will make a trip to the casinos and pack bags and
make sure the house is left as we found it. Tuesday,
September 28th, we will check out of the house no later than 10:00 a.m.
If you are interested in joining us, please send
me an email and I will let you know if there is room for you
at the house, or perhaps find someone interested in sharing expenses of
a hotel room with you.
As is the case in all A to Z Recipes gatherings,
there is no extra cost to you beyond your personal expenses. If you
stay at the house, the cost is evenly distributed amongst attendees.
That amount is determined by the total number who stay. There is no
possibility of rental fees being more than $300pp for the week. The
groceries will be divided up in the same manner. Anyone
attending the annual gathering is free
to come and go as they please. They can stay at the house, stay in a
hotel or with family & friends; join in the planned functions,
not. Meals at the house are for those who are participating in the cost
of the house (or sharing in the food expenses).
