      Does anyone know what there is to do at Vegas for those within the
      18-<21 age range? Out of the 56 who went to San Fran, around 15 of
      us were from UCBerkeley. Seeing as how Vegas is not as easily
      accessible as San Fran, a lot of people are going to need a pretty
      good incentive to go.

      Oh and how many people do you think would be able to rent out one of
      those $50 rooms for the overnight stay?

      ~Edison

      p.s. I used to be able to run the 400 in 54-55 during my track
      career and my best averages are sub 20. If this 'cube mile' became
      serious I could train up for it if you guys need me.

        do. There are shows, things to see, amenities in the hotels, and
        cubers to hang out with.

        ... Hash: SHA1 Definitely. It should be a blast for everyone who goes. When I went to the nationals in 04, we flew into Las Vegas and drove into Pasadena.

          Definitely. It should be a blast for everyone who goes. When I went to
          the nationals in '04, we flew into Las Vegas and drove into Pasadena.
          Then we drove back to Vegas and flew back from there. It was a *great*
          experience.

          Theres lots of live music, shows, etc. Plus even just touring the strip
          and "old Las Vegas" (downtown, where all the older casinos are) is a lot
          of fun.
