It's finally almost here for real!
The WPBT Winter gathering is just around the corner now, with things kicking off next Thursday and running into the wee hours of the Sunday to follow.
Obviously there will not be a Frantic Friday in this little corner of the intertubles next week, as I'll be too damn busy living it live and in person! (those are the bestest Frantic Fridays for sure)
Many gathering newbies have approached me and asked, "what can I expect from this thing Bammer?" and I find the best answer is always, "Expect nothing and everything!"
With this group, damn near anything will and has happened at any moment. That's the real beauty of it.
But I guess there are a few things that have sort of become staples of our little get togethers in
and perhaps I can share my thoughts on just a few of them with you here.
Now to some, Vegas is considered
as far as vacation spots go.
All they can see is the "Sin City" side of the place. The 'porn slappers' handing out business cards, or the non-stop barrage of trucks with scantily clad ladies plastered onto the sides of them, driving back and forth on the strip. Hell most of the folks I watch while I'm there, seem just disgusted by the site of both.
Yet for some strange reason they appear immune and unaware of the hooker sitting beside them at the Geisha Bar. They are not disgusted at all by the fact that some fairly hawt chick is sitting next to them asking for a drink, with 95% of her
These are the times that I just love to be a people watcher! You can actually see the facial expressions change on these folks when their thoughts turn from all that's going on around them is disgusting, and they switch gears to hey! This seems to have a lot of
Oh there's potential there alright! It's just that your H1N1 shot you got before travelling, doesn't have anything in it to protect you from what that particular potential has to offer.
Yes what happens in Vegas should stay in Vegas and those decisions, are totally up to you of course! But in your attempt at
to have a great time while there, just try to be careful if you can.
I've personally found that at our gatherings wherever they end up taking place, the absolute best times almost always occur
Now I won't be as bold as to speak on anyone else's behalf here, but I'm quite certain that a favorite part of our gatherings to-date for many of you out there, has to be some of the
that's gone on.
I know a few of them have made me a little weak at the knees!
So what I guess I'm trying to say is, it doesn't matter if you're planning on just sitting down and
or if you're a slightly higher roller and some form of
is in your plans for our Winter gathering, have as much fun as you possibly can kids.
I personally have found that I do some of my best work in that department, by letting
become a major factor!
I do have one request of those coming out for our round of
For those of you we'll see out on the course on Friday, please dear God! Always remember to not only be very, VERY, VERY nice to our own personal
because of all of the wonderful things she has done. But I emplore you, please keep pointing her back in my direction!
To all my old friends, it's less than one week away now. I can't begin to tell each of you how much Peb's and I look forward to getting to see you once again.
To my newer friends, PLEASE try and make the effort to catch up with me! I truly want to meet as many of you as I can. If you're unsure of how to locate me, just try one of the following.
1) Ask a veteran and they can probably point me out.
2) Check near the closest bar.
3) Take a look at a Let It Ride table and find the guy with a tall glass of Scotch.
4) Walk into any casino we're supposed to be gathered at during that time and ask everyone where you can find
Chances are I'm either being one, or I'm the one standing next to it and drooling.
OK, that's enough fun for now. I know that this wasn't any good as far as real advice goes. For that, I'll have to direct you over here to Pauly. Even if you're not going to be at our gathering next week, it's damn fine advice for anyone travelling to Vegas.
Remember, tonight is the unofficial WPBT kick off kids! The WPBT Warm Up goes at 10:00 PM ET on FullTilt. All the details including the P/W, can be found on the previous post.
My sincerest thanks for dropping by....
