Hope you’re enjoying your weekend. We’ve got some more news for you. Without further ado, here it comes…
The Club is trying something new this year. We’re working on an iPhone app that will help keep attendees informed of what is happening during AMVIV (No, sorry, no Droid app – maybe next year). You’ll be able to look at the events on the go, keep track of which events you plan to attend, and see what other’s are up to at AMVIV. The app will be set to feed information from Facebook and from Twitter as well as our website, so if you do tweet about AMVIV be sure to include the has tag #amviv in your tweets. We’re finalizing the first version of the app, and will let everyone know when it’s available.
Want to hear some more about AMVIV? This week, we were interviewed by the guys with White Roof Radio – please check out Woofcast #372 to hear some of what we’ve got brewing: www.whiteroofradio.com/woofcast-372
Remember that special Station Casinos had recently – the infamous $100 gift certificate for $50? Well, I want to tell you about We Luv Locals. It’s a website Station Casinos put together, which gives those folks that sign up access to some of the best deals in Vegas. Just go to that website: http://www.weluvlocals.com and sign up to get exclusive offers directly to your Inbox, offers that will help you save some cash during your pending visit to Sin City. Here’s a link to the We Luv Locals FAQ if you have questions. They cycle a new deal at least weekly, maybe that gift card deal will come back around again.
Hope everyone is getting their travel plans together. Time is wasting away, and May is coming soon. Remember, online registration for AMVIV8 is set to go up to $30 on April. Head on over to http://www.amviv.com/sign-up and get registered!
We’ve got a revised schedule up, with a more detailed timeline for those of you trying to plan your days. Go check it out!
We’ve added a Slots tournament for those folks that always arrive early ~ Wednesday night. Our Poker Tournament will be on Friday afternoon. More details will follow later.
We’ve got 61 people registered for the Dam tour so far. Remember, the tour can hold as many people as would like to sign up; but you MUST pre-register! If you don’t register for the tour before online registration closes, you won’t be able to go.
About the Dam tour. It’s a chartered Dam tour on a set schedule. We will start gathering at 10:30am on Thursday morning. The bus will leave the Palace Station parking lot at 11am. If you are registered on the tour and do not board the bus at the appointed time, you will miss it AND the tour. No exceptions. Please plan accordingly.
The Poker Run will be run a little differently this year. Instead of starting at The Palace at a preset time, and going to a preset list of places to pick up cards – we’ll be doing something different. This time, we’ll be giving participants a list of questions to answer. These questions will require participants to drive around the Las Vegas Valley to find the answers. Completed lists will be turned in and cards will be handed out on Saturday. Each correct answer will award the participants a card. More complete instructions will be handed out later.
We will also be hosting a scavenger hunt of sorts. This hunt will most likely require the use of a camera and access to a Flickr account. It’s also guaranteed to get you out there exploring Las Vegas. Again, more details will be made available later.
Oh and did we mention there will be kegs of Guinness at the Vendor Mixer aka ‘Mayhem’ on Friday night after the Las Vegas Strip Cruise? Just making sure you’re paying attention. Speaking of vendors, if you’re hoping to see your favorite MINI Vendors at AMVIV, but don’t see them on our list yet, give them a holler.

Wow!! 93 paid registrations in just three short weeks! We’ve reached our minimum for the Chartered Dam Tour. Actually, 52 folks are already signed up. It’s going to be a blast. Remember, if you want to go on this tour, you MUST pre-register. We CANNOT accept reservations when you arrive in Vegas for AMVIV.
Some sad news – if you didn’t jump quick, you missed it. The gift card deal Station Casinos was offering has expired. Looks like you’ll have to cozy up to those quick friends of yours that managed to capture that deal – maybe they’ll share
