(All photos courtesy of Ang)

Here we go.

We are going to VEGAS on March 30th Saturday and coming back on March 31st Sunday.

We will leave Sat early morning and arrive Vegas Sat before noon.

We have entire Saturday in Vegas. (Ton of pictures from sunrise to sunset, food, drinks and shows if everyone agrees).

We will drive back on Sunday morning after breakfast, we may stop at the outlet, death valley, and some other interesting places along the way back but we will try to make it back to LA by 5:30pm to recharge ourselves for work week.

Stay:

Hotel price is around $50-60 a night. (Staying at 3 stars hotel on the strip, two people per room, it will cost around $25-30/person for hotel only. Depending on the amount of the interest, I will book the hotel by Feb 28th)

Transportation:

Its better to drive. Most of us have sedans and fit 4 people. Please let us know if you are willing to drive. For those who volunteer to drive will not have to pay for the gas. The other 3 passengers will split the cost of the gas.

Eat:

Go Dutch! There are many places we can choose from, Mc. Donald to Ruth's Chris.

Shopping:

Optional!

Major expenses are Hotel, Gas and Food. Now that we decided to stay only one night here is the approximate cost. $30 hotel, $40 for transport, and the cost of food. So it will be a little bit over $100.

Our goal is to have fun, to create awesome pictures and helping each other if needed. I or portfolio meetup group is not responsible for anything including, but not limited to, personal injuries, property damages, etc.

$30 reservation fee is needed and will be refunded if cancelled before Feb 28th. I hate to do this but this is to show the seriousness of the attendees. Any cancellation fee that is being not used will to go the models for VEGAS BUFFET dinner.

    Larry/Kin I wanted to go Friday night with the desert crew. I live in West Hills near 101 and Topanga. If its all good I'll reserve a room at Excalibur and cover the cost...

      My vote is for DV. There wont be a time of the year when it will be cooler (temperature wise). It'll be a waning moon probaybly about 85% so it'll be good for long exposures at night, but not for star shots...

      March 26, 2013

    Ladies. In order for me to book another room, please make a $30 payment to [masked] through paypal. Guys are okay, Jim pay for his own room and Steve and Boe have their own arrangement.

      March 20, 2013

    • Jin

      as long as the girls are confirmed, we have at least 7 now. Have the 7 given you a deposit?

      March 20, 2013

  • Jin

    Time to set up the agenda for the event. What do each of you want to do? Time is limited so its better if we have an idea of how to plan each day. Its ok if we split up into smaller groups if needed, but lets be organized about it so everyone knows whats happening.

    March 19, 2013

  • Jessica

    I might be able to go now.. If so, I will pay today or tomorrow.. just need to carpool with someone

    2 · March 19, 2013

  • Linda

    I'll go if more girls go.

    1 · February 18, 2013

    • Jin

      right now, we have a room for the boys and a room for the girls. Two beds in each room, so you work it out from there. We will probably get at least one more room. If you need your own bed, and a limit to people in the room, let us know and we can figure out the costs involved.

      March 12, 2013

    • Jin

      I got a third room. We already have one room for boys, one room for girls. In the third room, its open to 1-2 other people if you want but the rule is you cannot snore, must be clean, and I get one bed to myself, cuz I am paying more for this benefit. I know ... i am a bit crazy. Deal with it, LOL.

      March 18, 2013

  • Linda

    Larry and I were talking tonight and we are wondering about the number of drivers. Is there anyone willing to volunteering to drive? Riders will chip in for gas and will meet at your location. We thought of renting a minivan, but the cost is too high because returning late will count as 2 full days. Plus insurance.

    March 15, 2013

    • Jin

      The walmart is open 24 hours so there are people coming and going. I have never seen a sign that says you cannot park there over night. But residential does sound better.

      March 18, 2013

    • Kin

      residential is better

    • Linda

      So do I get a $20 credit or just hold it to pay the difference later?

      February 18, 2013

      Either way works. Up to you.
