Who is making the trip to Vegas this year???? I think more than ever our Zags need us in the stands crowding the Orleans Arena, making it a home game atmosphere for our boys. More-so than the year we were #1 going on, or the years we were guaranteed a top seed, this is the year I hope to see the Casino of the Orleans flooded with Zag t-shirts, sweaters, you name it! Always a fun time every year. Hopefully this year will culminate on a great string of 4 games and a WCC Champ.

Totally agree.

We are all in -- party of about 10 -- and yes, we will all be sporting our Zag attire, EVERYWHERE

Go Zags!

Will be there Saturday. My pocketbook would appreciate the Zags winning so I don't spend all my time at the tables drinking the pain away. :cheers:

I may need to reevaluate my life as my health and financial well-being appears to be related to kids playing basketball.

Haven't missed a year yet. Great time to catch up with friends!!!!

We hang out in the bar overlooking the court after the game. Great place to watch the next game, have a beer, and avoid the casino:)

jwalk -- explain the "bar overlooking the court" -- I've been to every tournament dating back to San Diego. Haven't missed any in Vegas as well. I'm either too amped up or a little buzzed, I've never seen this bar. Sounds wonderful...more details please.

Go Zags - Beat SDU!

We are very excited to attend, first time for any of us at the WCC tournament. We have rented a house sorta near the Orleans for Mrs. 3zagda, our 3 Zags, their spouses and I. We are really pumped!
We may have 2 extra tickets for Monday and Tuesday games.

77, opposite the stage end is the bowl end of the arena. Above the bowl end is a bar area that is accessible via a stairwell just out side the seating area for the bowl. It is around the corner from the stairs going down (not the main stairs from the casino). There is one sweet little old lady the turns everyone away, so we go to the other set of stairs leading to the bar. The stairs are how everyone gets to the private booths.

They serve beer and food. Great place to hang out. If you need more information, please don't hesitate in sending me an IM.

I don't have one. I am not an alumni, connected to Gonzaga by baptism. Norm Few baptized me and I attended Church there growing up. Mark's mom and dad were the youth group leaders when I was in high school. I have been invited in to some alumni functions though and have always been impressed.
