Vegas for Thanksgiving

This year's Thanksgiving tournament is the Play4Kay Shootout to be held in Las Vegas, November 23-25 (Thursday through Saturday).

That is just about all we know about it at this point. Game times and opponents have not been announced. We'll update this blog post as well as the Travel page when more info is available.

If you are sure you are going, you can book rooms in the official hotel, the Mandalay Bay Resort. Click the "Book Now" button in the tournament link above.

Travel Logistics

Prices for flights from SFO or SJC to LAS are crazy for this holiday weekend: $350 and up. Normal prices are half that or less. Southwest still has some "wanna getaway" $150 fares for the Thursday, but the return fares for Sunday are all at $300+.

Driving to Vegas from the Bay Area is about 550 miles, and about 8 hours, via Bakersfield (per Google maps). We are looking at leaving on Wednesday and spending a night on the road in Bakersfield or East of it, and should still come in quite a bit cheaper than flying.
