We met with our contact from the Silver Legacy in Reno, NV late last week and all of the costs have been finalized. Information about our next reunion is included in the registration form below.
If you’ll be arriving by plane, the Silver Legacy provides a no-cost shuttle service between the Reno Airport and Resort Hotel. If you’ll be driving in or renting a car while you’re in Reno, the Silver legacy has free parking in their parking garage behind the hotel on Sierra and 5th streets.
There are number of things you can do or visit while you’re in Reno. There’s gaming, of course, as well as various shows at both the events center, the 3 connected Resort hotels (Circus Circus, Silver Legacy, El Dorado) and hotels down the street and across town (Harrahs, Grand Sierra Resort, Atlantis and the Peppermill):
If you’ll be renting a car, Lake Tahoe is about a 3 hours drive southwest and up the mountain from the Hotel. It’s truly beautiful up there and a ride up the ski lift (a bit pricy but worth it) gives you a full view of the Tahoe region. There are a number of niche shops that sell tchotchkes, trinkets, bobbles and wood carvings.
If, however, you’re not driving, but will be on foot, there’s also a mighty fine National Automobile Museum that you can easily spend an entire afternoon drooling over, just 7 blocks from the Silver Legacy with an admission ticket price of less than $10/person with discounts for Veterans. There are also a number of interesting little shops, cafés and a river walk downtown.
Weather in May can potentially be unpredictable. There have been times when we’ve had a snow storm or two, but the weather is generally quite nice that time of year. We do have a 30°-40° difference between our daytime highs and nighttime lows, so you’ll need to plan accordingly as you pack your bags. One thing it always is here — it’s arid. Our humidity levels are frequently below 30 and are frequently in the teens or single digits during summer months, so while you’re here, please remember to hydrate — with water.
