Breaking News: 2009 Seminar Dates

Hi Wizards,

We've finally got the dates for the 2009 Las Vegas Seminar.

It will be held on October 30, 31, and November 1, 2009 at a first-class hotel and casino.

I'm sorry I can't give you the name of the hotel right now, as they've asked for me not to announce it until they have the block of rooms officially in their computer.

I should be able to give all the details on this coming Tuesday, and I'll post here on the Wizards' Forum, and will also send you an email. I've prepared an outline of the Seminar, a rundown of the schedule and topics, and I'm frankly really excited about this one.

You'll be able to sign up online or by calling the office.

Rooms are on a first-come basis, and the hotel has given me a block of Casino Rate rooms that are significantly less than the normal rate (although bear in mind, this is a world-class facility, so their 'rack' rate is quite high).

The theme of the seminar is Mastering The Art Of Handicapping And Value Betting.

Wanted you to know the dates as soon as they were finalized, as this will allow those of you who are planning to come to make arrangements for those dates.

Thanks for your patience with me on this: Getting a Seminar like this organized takes a good deal of work, and I'm sure you know how it is dealing with a big company, and the accompanying blizzard of paperwork, signatures, authorizations, guarantees, and so forth. Sometimes I really miss the old Las Vegas!

Anyway, stay tuned, details of the Seminar, the hotel/casino, special phone number for the Casino Rate rooms, etc. will be arriving in a few days.

I'm looking forward to seeing you in Las Vegas,

All the best,

Excellent !! Great news. Looking forward to it.
If the seminar schedules could be posted that would be good as it would make a difference whether or not to arrive on Thursday or Friday afternoon.

Hi Norman,

Thanks for the comments.

Right now, the plan is to begin on Friday evening at 6 PM. If we can get a commitment to let us in on Thursday to set the room up, we could start earlier.

Comments and suggestions welcomed!

All the best,

You will have a great time...wherever you are in Vegas :) Seriously, though, the seminars are awesome and well worth the money and time spent. I really wish I could go and meet some of my fellow Wizards.
