Reno, Reno, Reno

1 March 2003

Well, it wasn’t much, but we did have a little bit of snow, and maybe a little more on the way... as soon as I start talking about sunshine, it figures we are going to get some snow!

There’s a great multi-casino promotion going on that every guest in town should know about.... I wrote about the events going on with Circus Circus, and got a note from the Legacy, saying the promotion was going on not only at Circus Circus, but also at the Silver Legacy, Eldorado, and Harrah’s, as well. So, what I missed is this.... "The Stay, Play, and Win tournament" will have 500 winners from each of the four properties playing off in a semi-final and final tournament at the end of October.... WIBC participants can get entries with special deals from the Legacy... I’m off to find out what the rest of them are doing, but I have to presume that it would be similar. Why not take a shot at some big money while you are in town?!

Reminder... South Lake Tahoe is throwing a 10-day party with "Lake Tahoe’s Big Chill" running February 28 through March 9 with activities for a really wide range of interests and for all ages.... divided into several themes... you can pick up all the details at Lake Tahoe’s Big Chill or by calling 800-786-8208. Harrah’s and Harveys are the main sponsors of the event, along with Heavenly Ski Resort, Marriott, Coca Cola, and Budweiser. It’s worth checking out, there are things to do no matter what you like...

I’m amazed, and I thought I would share the source of my amazement with the world. The comments keep coming in about what I do with the Reno Gaming Guide, and I am delighted to see where my words wind up! So below are some of the comments from the guest map comment cards. I hope that many more will pop in and poke a pin in the map, utilize the message board... share your comments about Reno, and while you are at it, rate the slots....not just the Reno slots, but the slots throughout the U.S. and Canada too! Your opinions count! If for any reason, you cannot access the guest map to poke in your pin, just let me know, and I can do it for you... I’m sincere in saying that I want to fill it up! And while you are at it, if you haven’t already subscribed to the Reno-Tahoe Gambling Weekly, you can click on the handy link and join in the fun... rate some slots, make a comment, give a trip report, geez, I have a lot of places where you can voice your opinion!
