Las Vegas was the backdrop of an unofficial, fun-filled Thunderbird reunion in the weekend of October 16. The 30 participants included local Las Vegas alumni chapter members, current students and alumni from as far away as Japan.
Most of the events were hosted at Planet Hollywood right on the strip. This is where the party happened at the luxury suites. The group went to the famous T-bird owned Heart Attack Grill on Freemont Street, while others hit the dive bar Ellis Island Casino just off the strip to try their luck at the crap tables. Luckily, almost everybody came out ahead at the tables, at least according to their accounts. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. The trip was organized by JP Driessen ’99, who also put together Thundercruise this past February.
