Mfest 2!!! August 29-31, 2008 Las Vegas, NV....

First off I would like to thank you all for supporting and participating at our last event MFEST last March 7-9 and the WheelPower bbq meet last April 20th ...And due to the overwhelming response and request to do another event this special we were inspired to do it AGAIN (this year only)... For the guys who have been to our meets, you already have an idea on how we do it (GBOGH) and for those who missed some of our events, your missing alot!...We are laying out the ground work and what not for this event including HOTEL RESERVATIONS and we want to keep the same theme/ vibe "Camaraderie"... we have thought of different dates and the best dates we have so far is Aug. 29-31 (Sept.1 is labor day)... as i know some of you have family plans during the holidays hence the reason why we are posting the dates early so you can make appropriate arrangements and hopefully be able to attend our humble event ( you can even bring the family along for some fun)...We will walk you thru as we progress on the schedule of events and trust me this is another event that you wouldn't wanna miss...again i thank you all and hope to see new and old faces

There will be a car competition $$$ prizes and trophies will be given out, and we welcome the team and crew to show as there will also be a best in team/ crew competition aswell...

Non M's are welcome but pls post your name so we can include you on the list and number of cars...


Btw any help is appreciated...

As far as the SPONSORS or Vendors pls contact me thru PM if you want to secure a spot asap...

As my signature says below, I have made a final table at a World Series of Poker event. I run a rather large monthly tournament in San Jose area. If we want a poker tournament to be part of such an event, I can bring the chips, cards, and timing computer.

My excuse for going to Vegas -- is my inlaws live there. So of course my wife would always be willing to go -- and it's my B-Day weekend.

We got the room rates lowered finally (as i have told you guys we have been working on so as to be able to save you guys as much $$$ as possible)...we will post the grp rate code as early as next week so you guys can book your rooms asap...there will be a cut off date and after the cutoff date, rates will go up significantly...pls do remember that we are signing a contract and will depositing $$$ for x amount of rooms so pls book your rooms accordingly...


Red Rock Casino resort and Spa
Friday ... $135+tax and $20 resort fee= @$167.15
Saturday ... $135+tax and $20 resort fee= @$167.15
Sunday 125+tax and $20 resort fee= @$156.25

Aside from this they will block off a covered parking space for the cars so we will be all together in one spot, will give us a section of the pool area for the afternoon pool party/ raffle and awarding ceremony ( Cabanas are extra but some of the sponsors who are going to have Cabanas so you guys can relax and talk to the sponsors and have a drink or two with them, drinks are extra)...and more

If you have any problems or questions let me know asap ...thanks

Here is the link on one of the bigger Norcal contingent..., one of their ideas too is check in, in L.A and go with us with the huge caravan or leave early a.m straight to Barstow...pm Emperor and coordinate with him...

10:30 PM -- Arrive in Bakersfield. Wait for any Bakersfield contingent.
11:00 PM -- Leave Bakersfield towards Barstow.
1:00 AM -- Arrive in Barstow. Sleep.

Or if others can leave earlier, we could move this up two hours to meet at 4:30 instead of 6:30 for an 11:00 PM arrival in Barstow.
