I am probable - how much do those who have done this trip before think it will cost?

On another note, I have been shaken this afternoon. Upon watching one of the old wallice and gromit films, I saw one of their contraptions, the BV6000. Thats 5999 better that me.
Also, look at it's functions:

I can merely do one of those!

I've basically become obsolete, so good-bye all.

Haha Joe! Killer!

Ok, so Shovie found flights for £340 DIRECT.  Thats pretty good.  Normally I book a flight with one layover as they are cheaper, but in this case its only £10-15 cheaper.  So you might as well go direct.

If we get 4 in a room, its normally not that bad... although the 2 years I've gone, it has been free (courtesy of F4F) and on a half price deal (courtesy of expedia), so I can't say exactly how much it would cost.  
I reckon about £16.50 a night with 4 guys in a room.  


We could probably get 5 in a room and have one on the floor!  I don't mind doin that, and being the guy on the floor.  

Entry fees will be about $100.  So say £80 to be safe.

So you're looking at £80+£340+ = £420 + accomodation for however many nights.

Then you have to ask yourself how much you want to spend on food + vegas funtime.

Book flights now then! Hotel reservations can wait a few weeks until we know who's going.
