Details Announced for U.S. Area 2013 in Las Vegas
Ready to head to Las Vegas again?
The U.S. Area of Y Service Clubs International will hold its national convention there July 18-21, 2013, so if you’re thinking of going there you might want to keep those dates in mind.
Headquarters for the convention will be the Hampton Inn Tropicana Hotel which is about three miles from McCarran International Airport.
The hosts for the convention, the Pacific Southwest Region, have been working hard on the arrangements and planning the events. They are promising us “world class entertainment, exciting speakers, engaging forums” and, of course, a slots tournament, “Slots of Fun.”
Rooms will be $84 a night, which comes to less than $95 a night when taxes are added. The registration fee for the convention will be $200 for all of the four days. Jim Singletary, convention committee chairman, had this to say in a letter beginning the promotional push to get as many people there as possible:
“Conventions are best when we all come together and do the thing Y’s Men do best –– live, laugh and love while sharing in dedicated service to the U.S. Area.”
Those of us who went to our own Hawaii Region Convention in Vegas this past May had a great time. The Area Convention promises to be great too and these Area meetings, held every two years, are great opportunities to make new friends in Y’sdom and revisit with old friends from other parts of the country.
We Hawaii folks probably have our own travel-package preferences and we can expect our own experts to come up with suggestions soon.
The Hawaii Region will keep you posted.
