I am pretty sure Lori (the boss) and I will be there. We are trying to get there a few days early so we can see some sights this time.

I guess the flights were OK last time, or will you be driving out? A car certainly comes in handy if you want to see things in the area - I highly recommend the new bridge out at the Dam.

we can give anyone lists of what to do based on budget or interest (food, dancing, outdoors, sports, etc) - we live in both New Zealand and Las Vegas.

For those coming in from California - you may want to check out M Casino pricing - it is the first hotel on the way into town and they did a very nice job. It was made by the Marnell Family - the same one that designed all the luxury hotels in town - go to the top of the M for drinks and a view.

As far as the bridge Marko talked about - agreed - very cool.

I also recommend the Mob Museum - very well done.

And for those interested in some of the most interesting mechanical marvels - very odd stuff - go to the Erotic Heritage Museum - talk about some very interesting mechanical engineers having too much fun.

For those who want outdoors - let us know and we can take you to a place in Red Rock where you get the most amazing hike and view of Las Vegas.

And then for night time fun...well I recommend the Axiom "Sweet As Las Vegas ISA Party" - will be immediately following Erik's get together - this is on Friday right?

Our party includes free drinks, free entertainment and some very "Las Vegas" things to see.... and NO there will not be snakes this time KGirl - and NO there will not be bodypainted bartenders that help people practice eye contact skills! But....there will be much more this time....and naturally we will be introducing some new things. We will have some of the industry leading experts at the party as well so you will be able to ask first hand questions over drinks and entertainment.

I am ready for this party - for those who have been to my cruise ship parties or my Catalina Island parties - this will be the best - we use to call them Light It Up events - now we are going with "Sweet As Party"

Yea the flight was not too bad last time. It is just too far for us to drive so a cab will get us to the sights.

Anyone taking any Seminars? Thought I might take one or two. Maybe, after all it will be in Vegas.

Hey Rocco:

Booked yesterday at the Luxor with airfare out of Detroit, Wednesday to Saturday $ 437.00 USD ea. We booked thru Orbitz.com and they had packages out of Toronto for about the same money. The prices have been steadly increasing over the last 2 weeks. Detroit just works better for us.

Unlikely..... not that I don't want to but I've got 3 projects running concurrently and I don't think I can escape them without doing a dis-service to my client(s).

Still considering it. Being that I'm here in Orlando I see the ISA LED expo on even numbered years and have lost interest :P

I've never been to the Vegas show though and would love to meet you and many other SS members that are going to be there. :beerchug:

Can you write off beer ? :fhangover:

Make it more legal. Write it off to a "consulting expense" and Eric and I will help you out with that part.

    • 1st of all while its great to use as an excuse. I am not sure as what I would like to consider myself a legitimate business that excuse to not pay does not fly. I cant use that excuse with Grimco, Glantz aluminum suppliers , Ford , the bank.   Hmmm I will just have to put on my big boy pants and get into the line of credit.  Our large signs we are using our money for 60-90 days by the time the project starts through delivery then getting paid.    Besides what if they never get paid. Nope sorry thats not how this works.
    • Paul;   Your statement   " When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? "   You are exactly on point. How the hell do I know for sure when you have been paid? This comes after being so stupid that I would agree to be paid when paid in the first place.   I just received a query from "FacilitySource" to become a contractor. They have just been consumed by CBRE (Coldwell Banker Richard Ellis), a large player in the real estate/ real estate management area. I received a solicitation sheet from them and I won't even insult the intelligence of those on this venue by posting it.   The response section was very definite but the payment portion was somewhere out in the Cosmos. You could  be  paid only if they got paid and then pay you at some mysterious date in the future. They had a list of discounts that they wanted to take under circumstances that were totally unverifiable. You also had to sign away all rights as a contractor while shielding them from everything. Incredible............   But if I were to sign this nonsense, I would be getting exactly what I deserve.   Just for the record, they intimated that they wanted me to provide service to Lowe's, along with some other familiar major accounts in my area.   I politely refused the offer but thought to myself that if a person made me an offer like this to my face I would have dispensed justice with a broken car antenna right on the spot.   Peace out!  
    • Here is a " National " Maintenance Co that sent me a request to work for them. I read their contract and it included payment statements stating they will only pay their contractors if they get paid by their customers. Also included was a Hold Harmless Insurance Policy covering everyone  And no legal actions can be taken against the National or the end customer  Plus a lot of other nonsense    When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? Here is the answer sent to me                  Hello,   I will take you out of our system. The only reason we wait until the client pays us ( like every other maintenance company that isn’t upfront with you about it ) is because we are nationwide and all through Canada. If we paid every technician before getting paid we would be out of business. That would be millions we would have to lay out.   Thank you!   Dominique DiPalo Vendor Relations RKB Maintenance Solutions 330 Motor Parkway, Suite 306 Hauppauge, NY 11788 P:  516-612-7821 x 413| F: 516-706-1393 E:  DDiPalo@rkb247.com | W: www.rkb247.com
