    March 9-12 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

    I just checked my work schedule and for the first time in 3 years my major annual trade show doesn't conflict.

    So I'm going.

    Who else will be there?

    Bought tix to the NCAA in Denver so I may have to do some work on the home situation to justify doing both. Half in

    Went last year for the first time and had a great time. Enjoyed watching all of the games in an arena that wasn't too big. Be sure to attend the pregame parties at the designated bar. Good hanging out with other Buff fans and hopefully they improve the happy hour options this year. I grew to like all of the teams and all of the other fans except for the Arizona fans. Utah fans are the nicest folks and I was rooting for them after the Buffs lost their second game. I believe that the tournament is going to be moved to a larger arena in the coming years. The one benefit to that is they might be able to seat the fans together more versus being spread out in small groups here and there.

    Very possible. Did already get tickets for the Vegas Classic in Dec... the wife's family are big Penn State fans, so meeting some relatives to see the CU-Penn St game. Seems PSU football is still "hiding" from us after our 1970 beatdown ending their 31-game unbeaten streak. :)

    I'll be out there in April, but I do have 3 vacation days to burn or I lose them. Might be the time to use them.

    We were wanting to go this year for the first time and get all session tickets. Is it best to get them through CU or through ticketmaster? I know about the 12-12 deal, but we wanted to make sure we had all games.

    Either do the 12/12 sale they always do, or you can buy them in vegas easily at about 1/10th the price going through CU/Ticketmaster.

    Should it stay in Vegas, it will get moved to the new MGM arena being built behind the NYNY. Won't be as intimate but that place is going to be gorgeous and designed specifically for court/ice sports, instead of having to be retrofitted like the garden arena. The new stadium seats 20,000 so still not too large. (MGM Garden Arena sits 16,800)

    20k would be a great crowd for a college hoops tourney.

    Received an email yesterday from CU regarding buying tickets for all games. The Pac 12 improved the seating significantly over last year when CU and other fans were seated in various locations through out the stadium. It is now set up so that the CU (and other teams) section will run from the court to the top row so the fans can sit together.
    CU's seating locations for the 2016 tournament are in sections 17, 117 and 217 of the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Even the higher up seats are pretty good.
