    CAP HIT – We’re currently at capacity, but spaces may open up later. Stay tuned.

    2015 RotoGrinders NFL Opening Weekend Party in Vegas Announcement. Special thanks to Major Sponsor DraftKings! – Reserve Your Spot!

    Our fourth annual party is booked at the Mirage September 12th and 13th!

    As always, the goal of our NFL Opening Weekend party is to celebrate the return of football, the epic growth of the DFS industry and the good times we have along the way. Planned events include poker and beer pong tournaments, a multi-site Freeroll Bowl, the Tournament Player of the Year award presentation, and more.

    While many Grinders staff, contributors, partners, and friends will be in attendance, this event is also open to anyone ranked in the Top 2500 of our Grinders Rankings. We’d love to invite everyone but we have a cap of 200 people at the events. If we don’t hit our cap we will open this up to a larger number of players. You are allowed to bring a +1. We’ll fill this event on a first come, first serve basis, so check out the itinerary below and save your spot ASAP!

    CAP HIT – We’re full now for public invites, but spaces may open up later. Stay tuned.

    First, a shout out and thank you to our Major Sponsor, DraftKings!

    Itinerary:

    Friday Night, 8-10 PM (9/11) – Fanduel Party at Twin Peaks

    Fanduel made a generous offer a second year in a row to provide free food, drinks, and rock climbing at Twin Peaks on the strip. Come in a day early and join in on the fun.

    Saturday Evening, 6-9 PM (9/12) – Welcome Party & Game Night – The Mirage Hotel and Casino

    SPONSORED BY XBOX, COCA COLA, AND MILLER COORS

    We’ve rented our an entire conference hall at The Mirage and will transform it into RotoGrinders Game Central. It will be a great way to relax, catch up with friends old and new from the community and kick off the weekend’s festivities – with a few competitions along the way.

    Highlights include:

    o Third annual Daily Fantasy Beer Pong Championship (DFBPC). Winner keeps the RG-branded table!
    o XBox Lounge with Madden – maybe a Madden Tournament?
    o Pop-a-shot
    o Tournament Player of the Year ceremony for McJester, the 2014 Champ
    o Free food and beer

    Sunday Morning and Afternoon Games (9/13) – NFL Viewing Party – Gilley’s SPONSORED BY DRAFTKINGS

    Last year’s venue, Brooklyn Bowl, informed us they are not carrying the NFL Sunday Ticket this season, and we obviously can’t have that at the RotoGrinders Party. This year we’re going right next door to the Mirage for our party. Gilley’s at Treasure Island has an awesome area set up for us, complete with tons of TVs, a mechanical bull, and great food.

    o Free food and beer
    o Big screen TVs to watch the NFL games
    o Mechanical Bull Rides
    o More Beer Pong
    o Fourth Annual Freeroll Bowl – everyone at the party is welcome to play in a freeroll hosted by each, respective DFS site that has a rep in attendance. The aggregate winner across all sites wins a cash prize as well as the privilege of guzzling a beer out of the Freeroll Bowl trophy. Past champions include HeadChopper, DP47 and naapstermaan.

    Sunday Evening (9/13) – Third Annual Poker Tournament – The Mirage Poker Room SPONSORED BY DRAFTKINGS Added DK prizes coming soon!

    At the end of the afternoon slate, we’ll move back to the Mirage Poker Room. Here we’ll host our Third Annual RotoGrinders Poker Tournament, which will include:

    o $150 buy-in, $15 to the house
    o Drinks provided by Mirage
    o Privilege of eliminating friends, colleagues and competitors from across the DFS industry, and maybe seeing Jon Aguiar’s WSOP bracelet.

    A special thanks to our sponsors for helping us make this happen. We’d also like to thank AlSmizzle’s wife, Emiliana, and her company, www.ezeventproduction.com for leading the charge in putting all of this together.

    We may have some rooms at a block rate open up, more information on that coming soon. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    We hope to see you in Las Vegas!

    Note: In addition to filling out the form post in this thread as well. If you have a +1 please make sure we show it here:
