Las Vegas in July. What was the PPA thinking scheduling the conference in Las Vegas in July? 107 degrees during the day, cooling all the way down to 103 degrees at 10:00 pm. We didn’t have much free time so we stuck to checking out the free attractions at night, such as the Fremont Street Lights, the fountains at Bellagio, and the new pirate ship show at Treasure Island. No longer is the battle between the English and the pirates. Instead the crew of pirates gets seduced by sirens of the sea. Same explosions, stunts, and fireworks, only with more T&A. I marked it down as an improvement in my book, after all everyone knows how boring the British can be.
