OK, so by my last count, here's the forumites that'll be attending:

1) Me - Flies in Thurs
2) Dawn - Flies in Thurs
3) Chris (gymcoach) - Flies in Thurs
4) Kim - Flies in Thurs but hangs with family 'til fight day
5) Spiritwarrior - dunno when he flies in
6) Atom & Jesse Danger - Dunno when they fly in
7) Mark - Flies in Thurs?
8) Boomer - Flies in Thurs
9) Amy - Flies in Fri
10) Melissa - dunno when she flies in

I also know that Shane was thinking of coming with a pal, but I'm not sure if anything materialized from that. You coming, man?

Changes---I fly in FRIDAY...night to be exact. I get there at 8, need to find a rental car, then I really don't know what's happening. My aunt lives about 20 minutes from the Strip in West Las Vegas.

OK--leave approved, and I got a car for 3 days, with one day free! woo!

So I'm not sure what everyone's dinner/lunch plans are Saturday, but I should be around. I got a Pontiac G6 (or similar), so if you are sick of the Strip I can take some pile ins somewhere. There are some awesome restaurants there.

My dad and aunt know all the sweet spots, since they grew up in Vegas (I'm so stoked :w00t: )

Ben, did you already order your plane tickets?No, not yet. Trying to finish all of my school work is leaving me with no time to work & earn money. Everytime that I think I've finished a major project/paper & can go earn some cash, it turns out that I've actually got another one due the next week. It's getting to be incredibly frustrating.:unsure:

If she knew my plans, then that would take away the surprise. But, I'm sure that she'll be all for my plans. I mean, if she punches me in the eye or drops me with a head kick, I'll take that as a sign that she likes me. :wink:



You wouldn't happen to have her cell number, would you? She seems to have switched phones about the same time she took out that restraining order.


Sounds like she's just playing hard to get. Unfortunately, she's going to like me, anyway. But, if you want to win her back over, maybe you should just park outside of her house and even peep into her windows. She'll probably be flattered. :laugh:

Just be sure not to get within 500 feet of the house so that you don't violate your restraining order.

Woo hoo almost there! Okay, so we (me and 3 girlfriends) get in Thursday night, around 7 (we are driving). I would LOVE to go visit the gyms, will even have my car to drive...only one other friend I have has any interest so that opens up 3 spots. We (just 2 of us) will be at the q&A and weigh ins...then all of us at karaoke. Will be at the fights and then we leave Monday morning whenever we wake up.:sign0011:

We should look and see where all the gyms are located realtive to the hotels. I saw that Wand Fight Team is relatively close to where I'm staying so I wouldn't have a problem walking over ot that one. I think we should all be able to squeeze if we have to.

There is a monorail that goes up and down the strip. When I reserved our room at the Sahara, they said that you can buy like a 3-day pass for like 20 or $25.00 and the thing operates from like 7 am to 3 am daily. So, if Wandy's gym is near the MGM, we can pretty much ride the rail and then walk to that one.

As for the others, it might be worth pitching in and renting a mini-van for a day or two. Enterprise usually has pretty good deals...particularly for the weekend.

I also want to visit UFC Headquarters.

Lastly, Ben, I'm going to look into changing my flight to an earlier one so that I can meet up with you at the airport. There's a Southwest flight that is scheduled for arrival at 1:05. I'm going to call and see how much it would cost me to switch to that flight. I'll keep you posted.

If you can find one, let me know.

Also, Kim just texted me & said that she wants to go to the gyms & that means we'll have her car, as well, so I think we should be OK.

With Kim's car, that brings our total possible gym tour clots to 10, & I think we've just about his that limit. If Atom is driving down from Washington (I know he was planning to at one point, don't know if he changed his mind or not), then that would put us at 15 open slots. Here's who's coming as of now:

OK, people, let's go!




An understanding wife and a last minute change in our vacation plans have made it possible for me to be in Vegas by early Sat afternoon, So I'm trying to get this together before its too late. Does anyone have an extra ticket? Not trying to be a smart ass, just asking before I just hit stub hub or a scalper. I saw that I can still get tickets from MGM/Ticketmaster as of this morning (Mon 5/12) At the very least I'd like to hook up with some of you folks before the fights start.

I just hang then on a hanger right outta the washer...but maybe I'm the weird one.

I can guarantee you I will pack on Friday at 1100 am when i need to be at the airport at 1200 pm :D good times.

And for you guys with nil fashion sense, if you wear jeans, maybe wear a button down or a nice MMA tshirt if you want to go to the club after party. Just sayin :cool:

Some after parties and clubs have a strict clothing policy and may not allow jeans. I remember the last Matt fight I went, if some of the mods weren't part of Matt's group they wouldn't have gotten in.

So I might advise bring a set of "party clothes" just incase you plan on attending the after parties. Guys: some nice slacks. Chicks: a nice skirt and top or a dress. If you're going to go with pants, maybe some dress pants.

Have fun you guys! :D

What is Matt wearing? He always strikes me as a "jeans" guy. Y'all be sure and get pics of yourselves all dolled up so we can see what an afterparty looks like. The only pics I've seen are those GOAT posted of Chuck at a party and those ladies (I use that term loosely :laugh: ) were "undressing" so a dress code, I guess, wasn't required for that party. :unsure:

In regards to attire for the fight then going out afterwards, should girls wear a dress? I'm really confused.

Since I'm staying about 7 miles from the strip in western LV, I won't have the time to run back to the house and change, etc. But if I have to wear a dress to the fights, then I will :)

Really looking forward to this. Should be a great time!
