    Just a note if you are putting in the address for the Renaissance Hotel on GPS. Use the name Edmonton International Airport as that address will take you to SE Edmonton. The hotel is connected by pedway to the departures so will be really close. Meet in the Halo Lounge located on the 2nd floor!

      Hi Holly, I m coming off of a closing night shift. I m going to double check the time.

      September 14

  • Barb

    I received the travel itenary from Melissa. Is there suppose to be an E-ticket too? I have never participated in a group booking before so I'm not sure about the airline ticket and seat selection. Is anyone else having trouble with the Meetup App? Every time I try to post an error comes up?

    1 · September 14

    • Billi-Jo I.

      Hi Barb, I will Sk Melissa about the E-Ticket. Usually I just use my passport at the self check in and do it that way. Also seat selection is done at the same time. The Meetup App is so slow I no longer use it.

      September 14

  • Barb

    Looking forward to the trip and meeting everyone. Are we selecting seats individually or will we do as a group when we check in at airport?

    September 13

    • Holly T.

      Hi Barb - We are supposed to be meeting at the Renaissance Airport Hotel for a drink in the lounge first. It is connected right to Sunwing departures so not far to go. I will get Billi to post the time & more info on this.

      HI Evi we changed car racing to October 2-5.

      1 · June 10

  • Melissa M.

    By seeing a lot of the posts here it appears many people wanted the driving experience.........SO I am going to throw this out there. The weekend before Sept 25th and the weekend after Sept 25th there is available spots for the driving. If there are 10 other people interested in the driving perhaps we can create another group to go on the dates its available.......OR simply move the original date to a new date! Please let me know guys! It's not an issue to organize a new group.

    2 · June 9

    • Billi-Jo I.

      Hi Mel, for myself I will still go on original date. For sure if the other travelers wanted to go race car driving themselves here that would be awesome!!

      1 · June 9

    • Billi-Jo I.

      Hi Denise, we are keeping our original date. We will be skydiving if you have any interest in coming with me? We will all have a blast together in Vegas. I have a 2nd trip going to Vegas the following weekend for those going car racing.

      June 10

  • Holly T.

    I am not into either driving or sky diving & will probably enjoy the pool that day if anyone wants to join me!

    1 · June 9

  • Melissa M.

    I just wanted to let this group know that my contact at the Las Vegas Raceway informed me yesterday that some big company is hosting an event at the speedway the Spt 25th weekend. This was just announced this week. This means that all businesses in the vicinity are not permitted to be open during this time including the car rentals and such. Hopefully this doesn't sway your decision to heading to Vegas. I know you all will have a blast. The coolest thing now is having the option to skydive. I can say with my 5 jumps I have done, nothing beats skydiving. The cost for skydiving (jump only with shuttle from MGM hotel) is $220USD per person. It will be an exhilarating, thrill of a lifetime. Trust me. Please remember that deposits are due by June 13th. Feel free to call me anytime[masked]-8463. Viva Las Vegas
