The poker group decided to try another one of the Tropicana junkets since it worked out pretty well last time. We left Friday afternoon and returned on Sunday evening. We had a great time and as a group came back profitable!

Weekend Trip to The Wildwoods and Pennsylvania (4 albums)
July 29th, 2005 -- July 31st, 2005
Greg and I flew to Philadelphia to visit with Andrew and Brooke. We drove to The Wildwoods after landing in the Philly airport on Friday. We checked into our motel (which mislead us on their website), walked around the boardwalk, and went to bed. Saturday, we decided to check out of the motel, spend a little time on the boardwalk, and head back to Pennsylvania to hang out at Andrew's apartment for the rest of the weekend.

Shannon and Sam had their wedding on Sanibel Island in Florida. Greg and I took a day off work and spent a long weekend vacationing on Sanibel Island. My family took a vacation there when I was a kid, so I was excited about returning to the area.

Vegas in April (10 photos)
April 1st, 2005 -- April 5th, 2005
My parents convinced me to go out to Vegas during the NCAA Final Four weekend. We've all been wanting to be in Vegas at the same time for a while, so it didn't take too much to talk me into it. I managed to twist Brian's arm to go, and we also met up with several other local poker players while we were out there.

The poker group heads to Tunica to play poker (of course). We met many of the world's top players and were able to watch the first two days of the final $10k event of the Jack Binion World Poker Open (a World Poker Tour event). I also got to compete in the Ladies event of the WPO and placed in the money (barely)!
