    RotoGrinders Party in Vegas Opening NFL Weekend!

    8/21 Update – we are pretty much at capacity for Lagasse – if you’re not already on the list but would still like to go please shoot me a PM. If you’ve already contacted me privately please make up your mind soon!

    Time to celebrate!

    NFL Opening Sunday is always a cause for celebration, but this year we’re taking it up a notch. The growth of daily fantasy and our community here at RotoGrinders needs to be celebrated, and there’s only one way to do that properly: VEGAS!

    Come hang out with the Grinders staff and some of the game’s top players as we bring in another glorious NFL season. If you are a RotoGrinders member you’re invited – we’d love to meet you!

    Here are the details:

    Sunday NFL Viewing Party
    Lagasse Stadium
    9:30 AM PST to 5:30 PM PST – Morning and Afternoon games!
    $5,500 in Freerolls for Party Goers-Only by our sponsor sites DailyJoust, DraftKings, Profanity, FantasyFeud, StarStreet and FanDuel.
    $500 + Trophy to Party Champion

    DailyJoust’s Saturday CFB and MLB Party
    DailyJoust will be renting out a venue and offering Grinders a $1000 in College Football and MLB Freerolls to kick things off on Saturday. Details coming soon!

    More on the Sunday Viewing Party:
    Thanks to our generous sponsors we were able to book a Legasse Stadium Luxury Box for the party! This is the same Luxury Box that Fanduel uses for the FFFC, and it is awesome.

    Luxury Box
    I’ve got no idea how many of you will be able to make it, but we’ve got reservations for food for 40 in the box, and many buckets of beer. If more than 40 Grinders happen to come some of us will have to overflow into the Lagasse Stadium Sportsbook – which is an amazing place to watch football. Click here to see pics. Even if we don’t have room for everyone in the Box all attendees will be able to play in the Freerolls and go to the Saturday Night DailyJoust party. I think we’ll have a lot of room for people to come in and out of the Box but we may end up having to be selective with who gets one of the 40 seats. We’ll play it by ear – Dan and Cameron will try to get a sense of how much room we have when they’re covering the DFBC this Sunday.

    Freerolls
    Anyone who attends the Party will be able to play in the freerolls. Each sponsoring site will offer a freeroll. The person who performs the best across all freerolls will be crowned “Party Champion,” winning a $500 prize and a sweet Trophy.

    The List

    We asked around to some of our members we’ve gotten to know personally over the past couple years to gauge interest in a Grinders meet up in Vegas. The response was overwhelmingly positive. Here’s a list of guys who are already committed to going:

    BeerMakersFan
    HixvilleHunk
    Headchopper
    KaiserRoll
    Naapstermaan
    JackAndSoda
    Notorious
    RotoKevin
    KCearnal

    Guys who are in 100% since posting this:

    StarStreet – $1000 Sunday Freeroll
    FanDuel – $1500 bonus to the Attendee that scores highest in a week 1 FFFC Qualifier!

    More site reps are trying to determine if they can break away from their opening day duties to attend this party – we may be adding more freerolls to this list soon.

    Have any questions or comments just post them here! If you are going to attend please let us know when you are 100% sure. That will help us stay organized.

    GET EXCITED! SIX WEEKS UNTIL WE WILL BE HERE ON OPENING DAY:

    Fanduel is contributing a $1500 prize to the party attendee that finishes the highest in the FFFC Week 1 Qualifier. The money will be credited to your account the following Tuesday.

    Thanks to WaiverWire for helping us get this prize set up.

    With this list of attendees I wouldnt be surprised if we see the winner come out of the party. I also wouldn’t be surprised if we have 500+ entries to sweat.

    Starting to feel like the RGI “RotoGrinders Invitational” title.

    like it! We definitely need a catchy name for this festival of fantasy sports. Any ideas? I’m between:

    RotoGrinders Classic and RGI (RotoGrinders Invitational) right now. My only issue with RGI is it’s not really invite only or KCearnal wouldn’t be crashing the party…

    FESTIVITIES NAME:

    RG’s (1st) Annual FFFFFFFFUC

    (FANTASY FOOTBALL FANATICS FREEROLL FESTIVAL FOR FELLOW FREELOADERS FEATURING UNLIMITED CONSUMPTION) (Also – You can add a “K” to the end of that for “KIDS” or whatnot – but I believe that may be too vulgar – even for the likes of us!)

    RotoGrinders Desert Debauchery

    jmbwngfn i would only add “Drunken Desert Debauchery” to that. Here are a few more:

    1) The RG Legacy at Legasse
    2) RGDFSFFWOSPFCKO
    -Rotogrinders Daily Fantasy Sports Fantasy Football Week One Super Party for Cool Kids Only
    3) Roulette, Rum and RotoGrinders: A New Week 1 Tradition

    I’m thinking you could use ‘RG3’ in some contest to name this event.

    RG in this case would obviously stand for RotoGrinders, rather than Robert Griffin.

    The 3 could be Vegas, Booze, and Football

    How bout ‘The RG3 Jamboree’

    Or I guess you could avoid plaigerism altogether and just call it the ‘RG Jamboree’

    I plan on attending. Looking forward to it.
