Refuge + Vegas + Golf + March Madness, anyone?
We’ve officially locked down details for our first Super Regional in Vegas! NLU’s Sweet 16 will coincide with the NCAA March Madness basketball tournament, and we are pumped for it! The tournament will be for around 60 participants, with 8 NIT Spots up for grabs. The cost will be $525/person which is a steal given it’s one of the biggest weekends for sports betting in Vegas.
SAVE THE DATE video here with more details below.
EDIT: I’ve updated Golf Genius with information that can be found now in the various tabs on the EVENT PAGE. I’ll continue to update you with more details as we go along.
Registration will open January 11 at noon MT - likely looking at a first come first serve system for this one. REGISTRATION LINK
Players MUST be +21
Registration - Don’t worry if your last name populates funny in the registration field; I’ll fix it on the back end.
Hotel - Vegas will be sold out, so make sure to book your hotel rooms ASAP. While you don’t have to stay at either, we have two hotel blocks (you’ll find get links after registration) at different price points. Consider rooming up with a buddy to make it cheaper.
I’ll let the committee chime in here when they are back from bro-cation. @Tron @Randy
If you have any questions, DM me (@privatecollection).
Over/under on # of refugees who end up in jail? I’m thinking 3.5
This event has to be the odds-on favorite to have a future 30 for 30 made about it.
“I know I said we have too many trips planned this year, but…there’s this thing in Las Vegas.”- Me to my Significant Other this AM.
You just preempted an update post I’m making to our community today WRT pricing, date, and more for Chunks at the Chuck. Some slight changes on the horizon there.
Refuge charging into Vegas
(If it wasn’t too close to Scotland re vacation and COVID, would definely be throwing the name in the hat)
There is nothing more I would want, than to be rolling on a Craps table with @desertduffer and @Tron. Unfortunately, mid March through April are going to be my busiest two months with work. I already have a bachelor party for a good friend on hold that same weekend. If I’m able to get that weekend free, I will be on that trip. I have been wanting to do Vegas with this crew for a few years….this hurts. RIP me.
I’m pretty sure I’ll be in the middle of driving from AZ to Oregon that weekend for a move so I might show up for this in a uhaul. Hope Angel Park doesn’t mind.
Well transportation from Freemont Street to the course has been solved!
As someone who enjoys going to Vegas, I’m excited to see Stadium Swim and to see it from a reserved area with food and beverage included is going to be fantastic. (Note: I’m confident I’ll sign up fast enough for this one.)
Circa’s the first casino newly built from the ground up in a very long time. Specifically in Fremont/Downtown, I think since the 1960s or something like that. Generally stuff just gets major facelifts and remodels. Very hyped to check this spot out on Friday. The pictures on socials for Stadium Swim look awesome.
I’ve never played Angel Park, but I’ve heard good things about it!
This sounds amazing. I’ve never been to Vegas. And the price is unreal. However the middle day is my wife’s birthday. She’s a Saint that usually encourages me to sign up for these events, but there is no way I’m telling her I’m going on a golf trip over her birthday…
Registration is open!
Remember to search for your Nest Handle as your member name.
I’ve held a few spots back for anyone who has issues signing up here in the first hour or so (trying to keep it fair). I’ll release them back out if no problems come up.
Please DM me directly if you have a problem. I’ll be monitoring…
