Atlantic City Welcomes Republican National Convention

7 July 2000

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J., July 7 (Press Release) -- The Republican National Convention delegates and media will experience the thrills and excitement of Atlantic City with a roll of the dice on what is believed to be the world's largest craps table Wednesday, August 2, 11:30 a.m. on the famed Atlantic City Boardwalk, Brighton Park at Indiana Avenue. Rain date is August 3.

Professional dealers will give the delegates and media tips on how to play the game. They can step up and try their luck with a roll of the oversized dice on the 21-ft.-by-8-ft. craps table. Players will roll for the chance to win commemorative prizes such as famous Atlantic City salt water taffy, peanuts, milk chocolate color foiled coins, and commemorative logo merchandise.

``This event will showcase the fun and excitement that is Atlantic City,'' said Mark Juliano, board chairman, Atlantic City Convention and Visitors Authority. ``The world's largest craps table is a great way to allow the delegates and media to truly experience the thrills that draw more than 34 million visitors annually to Atlantic City.''

The summer event will be a highlight celebrating the 130th anniversary of the Boardwalk.

The special craps table is being constructed for this event by Tumbling Dice in Southampton, New Jersey. The oversize dice and gaming chips are the creation of The Masquerade Ball in Landisville, New Jersey. Both companies are located in Southern Jersey.
