A little early to say for sure, but I would plan on being there. Had a blast in Vegas at the SLK World retreats, and enjoy meeting other members.

Not a bad idea. Would like to know more when things are being planned out, e.g., how many days (Fri, Sat and Sun?), where to meet on days 1, 2 and 3? activities?

It would definitely be fun and is very convenient for all of us here on the west coast but not sure how many SLKers you would get from outlying states. You may get a little more interest from those people further away if you schedule it at the same time as 2012 Reno/Tahoe Hot August Nights which is 08/05/12 through 08/12/12. Does anyone know the total participation counts of the events held in Vegas during previous years?

Seems this event has petered out unfortunately. For those who are not yet aware, a different roadtrip is being organized in the Cali forum which everyone with an SLK is very much welcome to join:

https://www.slkworld.com/u-s-californ...er-2012-a.html

This will be a 4-day roadtrip that will take us through Red Rock Canyon, Mammoth, Yosemite and Mineral King among other places. Bleen has posted some delicious pictures in the thread to whet people's appetites.

If any of you that were looking at this Tahoe trip want to join us in July, please sign up! If you don't want to come all the way down to Los Angeles to start the trip, we can arrange to meet up with you anywhere along the way.
