I know it is a bit early to be talking about the 2016 WCC tournament but I did look into it last night. I found some great rates for the Orleans Hotel and a rental car. The WCC Tournament is March 3-8 and we won't see GU until March 5th, so I booked The Orleans for March 4-7, checking out the 8th. The total for 4 nights was $481.60. Here is link for hotel. https://www.bconnectedonline.com/resnet.php?prop_code=TO

I went to Costco Travel to reserve a car. I got a great deal on an SUV for $262.00. You can get a convertible for $202.00.

Booked my flights and hotel last week. Very excited for another Trip to Vegas. Anyone know when tickets can be purchased?

If I remember right tickets go on sale in November. If you join the Bullbog Club http://www.gozags.com/bulldogclub at $250/yr you get early notification on tickets and end up around lots of Zag fans. We're locals so we also go the Bulldog Club route to get chances at Kennel tickets too. If you get online early for tickets via the Club notifications you often can buy 2-4 tickets (aside from the 'big' games and harder to get ones when students are in town). Worth it though! We end up at 4-5 games/yr not counting the WCC Conf games.

Forgot to mention .... we zip around Vegas via taxi figuring we end up spending the same or less than a rental and don't have a rig to park, return, etc. We've also learned some interesting tidbits from taxi drivers :-)

I went for the first time this year. It was great. I didn't reserve rooms in time to get a reservation at the Orleans. I just tried to reserve rooms for 2016 using the link above and there were no rooms available now. Last year my wife and I stayed at the Gold Coast which has a shuttle between the Orleans and the Gold Coast and the strip. It wasn't bad but like the Orleans, you still have to wade through the cigarette smoke to get back and forth between locations. So, this year I am thinking of trying the Tahiti All-Suite Resort which appears to be very much within walking distance to the Orleans and it has kitchens with a shuttle to the strip. I wanted to check though to see if anyone else has ever stayed there and whether or not you would stay again. Also, I purchased my tickets online last year as I do not have season tickets and am not a member of the Bulldog Club. I had thought about buying season tickets from another WCC school to get on the list for conference championship tickets. If I can make a list to get tickets early by joining the Bulldog Club, I would rather do that than purchase tickets to another school that will sit empty most of the season (because I would not go to any of their games - although I could probably sell the tickets for the Gonzaga game). Is the Bulldog Club a good way to go?

If you go and lose $1000 at the tables, they'll give you a 12 pack, "free".

ZagaZags, I have not forgot. I will meet you there and buy you a 12 pack.

In the past I have bought the full package of tickets for all games. Has any one bought tickets for just the Zags games and if so was it cheaper and did you buy them directly from the Orleans?
