Well I've picked the dates for an AK meetup. I'm hoping there will be enough interest and that people can make it up.

Here are some early details. My plan is to have members stay at AirB&B down the road and hold card games at my place.

I know the cost to make it up here will be a bit steep but I will supply all the food and booze for the weekend. within reason on the booze, to try and help offset some of the cost.

I imagine my wife will keep crockpots of chilis and soups going all the time with breakfast and dinners cooked.

Non playing dealers and TD for the main event.

Any ideas that will help is appreciated I wont have the variety of chips as the other events but should still be a blast.

I will start a new interested list now that the dates are picked. If I can help with any info please let me know I will do my best to help out. I really hope enough people will be ble to make the trip!.

Let me know if your interested in coming up.

Here is the link to the house.I will be renting the house the day before to move stuff in. So if your here early its a free night.https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/17777951?location=Anchorage, AK&guests=10

If I can survive it in Texas you can make it up here.
Mate, I live in the AZ desert and I'm going without hesitation. Get yo'self up there!
Oh I'm coming if there is anyway possible, but those May dates sounded a little bit more temperate. My blood is a little bit thinner than it use to be. :)

Put me down for the AirB&b bunkin' party. (y) :thumbsup:

Interested. Realistic odds - maybe 25%.

I'll have a much better idea by Christmas or so whether it would be feasible. :cautious:

I am 90% so I will definitely take a bed! My brother is in as well and we may bring his wife and my daughter. If that happens we may end up getting another place to stay.

Yes, when I told Dan about your meet up he said "ALL-IN". He remembers you form the All In at the Alamo and enjoyed playing on the same table with you and I cannot miss one of my favorite chippers meet up. We go way back!!!

Airbnb requires you to pay up front. Every time I've used it it was an immediate charge.
Obviously I don't want to jump the gun and pay right away but I will get it booked somewhere around the end of summer to make sure we have the place for those dates, then collect from anyone staying there at the time of the event.

Thanks Bill I can say the same about meeting you. Was bummed when you couldn't make the Alamo.
