As most of you know, Slopefest III is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, May 14th and 15th in Las Vegas, Nevada. I had a lack of input from Slopers as to events, activities, etc. but no problem! With the massive help of a Slope lurker (Mr. K) who is a long time resident of Las Vegas, we have put together the formal meeting. I kept in the front of my mind the fact that the size of everyone's' dollar is different (As Dear Old Dad Used To Say!). I think we have found the right spot to accommodate everyone price wise and it is also a spectacular venue!
Saturday, May 14th between 6 and 9 pm at a private club at the top of The Mandalay Bay in the Foundation Room!
Go to the main elevator bank at the Mandalay Bay. You will see a desk at one of the elevators. You will need to tell the person there that you are with the Slope Of Hope. As this is a private club, there is a minor dress code. No open toed shoes/sandals for men. No sneakers, no shorts (no gang apparel either for you wannabees). No tank tops either I think. Just use common sense.
There is a minimum cover of $50 per person. Use your credit/debit card. Your drinks and eats will be charged against your minimum. IF you cannot afford $50 for the evening, you should not be in Vegas! This way, you are in control of what you spend. We most likely will be in the Media Room which is the best one according to Mr. K. We will have an absolutely spectacular view of Las Vegas while we get to know each other.

Dinner is a bit pricey for many so we can all decide where to go for dinner from there, should we wish to eat more.
As for further meetings/get togethers, that is open. Personally, will be going to the Sterling Buffet on Sunday at Bally's. Never miss the chance myself.
For those who do not yet have rooms. City Center has the best deals and the rates are not only good, they always have rooms and the rooms are VERY nice. Check the Vdara and the Aria for best deals.
Have another special announcement. Mr. John Person, his wife Mary as well as Mr. Butch Headding and his wife Phyllis may also be in attendence! So if you have an unautographed book by either Tim and/or John Person, bring it with you!
I look forward as does our host, Mr. Tim Knight to meeting you all at Slopefest III!
Time to take a time out and have some fun, good people. We have MORE than earned it! I will also be giving mini-seminars on how to get an edge on the casinos at blackjack and craps!
Yours in the ever elusive search for edges in and away from markets, the Market Sniper.
