I will be in the Las Vegas area a few days before this for a couple of trade shows.

I spoke with, Mr. Chin-up (George), he lives in Boulder City and we are going to meet for diner November 1 about 6:00 p.m. We are planning to actually meet at the Railroad Pass Hotel & Casino in Henderson, NV. This is next door to Boulder City where George lives. I have mentioned this to a few other Insighters who have expressed interest in meeting with us, several from out of town. One of the Insighters from out of town really likes, The Original Pancake House in Vegas, so we will be having breakfast there the next morning.

If you can make it to meet others and talk cars it would be great if you can join us. If you can’t make it to both, no problem. Please copy the list and add your name.

Thursday November 1 for dinner.

Friday November 2 for breakfast.

Thanks,
Scott

See guys? This is all it takes to set up an Insight get together!

Pick a time and a place and show up.

If others come? Great! If not, that's ok, too.

Glad to see folks just putting things out there to help strengthen this community's ties.

I'd love to meet all of you!

Work and WX will be the deciding factors. I won't know my November schedule until the 19th, and WX - well that may be a last minute scrub here in Northern Colorado! :)

I won't add my name officially yet, but I'm sure keeping it in mind!

Its kinda cool, we aren't really limited by cost for meeting up, just time, since we all get such great gas mileage.

It turns out that my wife, Carol, isn't going to be able to go. If anybody is interested in sharing a room, please get ahold of me.

so we are eating at Railroad Pass Hotel & Casino in Henderson, NV?

Or are we meeting there, then going as a group to another location for dinner?

I believe the plan is to eat something there unless one of the locals has some other place in mind.

There are a few of us that have booked rooms there.

If you guys want other options for food let me know as I live 5 miles away from R/R Pass in Boulder City. I'll be home all day if any early birds want to hang out as well.

Anyone have room in their room still? :)

I have a 3 hour drive to the meet, and I got scheduled for work the next morning, wondering if I could get some sleep in one of your rooms before my drive back to utah?

Full disclosure, I'm quite poor, so I would be purely bumming the floor space. Maybe I should change my name to poorG2owner haha

Sam12345 can vouch for my ok-ness of character, he met me for a few hours :grin:

Just talked to Sam, he is on the way and I am leaving now. Henderson NV get your women and kids off the street. The "Insighters" are on the way.
Be there around 3:30 PM.

Made it back safe and sound. Had a great time, Glad to see a few new members and always glad to see some of the old group. George, Sam, Mitch, thanks for showing up and keeping the INSIGHT tradition alive. To the 2 new Insight members thanks also. I hope you enjoyed the occasion.
It was a rush driving there........and coming back. Mostly ran in the 80 MPH range and sometimes 85+ just to get out of the way of the fast guys. Killed my MPG but it was done safely. Mitch is returning home, and Sam is on his way to WI, I think.
Scott will be back to work in the AM, and I'll sleep in.

While in LV, Scott did a "Road Call" for a new Insighter and I assisted slightly. I hope the customer is satisfied.

Funny thing happened at the RR Casino Thursday evening. They have 12 Charging Stations for the TESLA, and while we were BS'ing outside the casino, low and behold, a flat bed truck pulled up and backed into the area of the stations. It had a Tesla 3 on board. Apparently the TESLA had ran out of electricity.........HA HA.
Nothings perfect.
I'll put some more info on my "Turbo" thread tomorrow, need sleep..
TILL THE NEXT MEETING.

Great seeing everybody. Big thank you to Willie and George for treating us to dinner and breakfast!

I ran at 85 mph most of the way and used the A/C all the way home. I got 72.8 mpg round trip, not bad!

I know Sam was disappointed about not being able to buy everyone a meal. I'd like to make a personal pledge that at the next get-together I will allow Sam to buy my meal. I'm willing to make the same pledge to any other Insighter who joins us.:D

I really appreciated the preventative maintenance advice provided by Scott. I'm going to go ahead and replace my radiator in the next couple of days.
