Las Vegas Day 1


Las Vegas, a place where fortunes are won and lost...but mainly lost. I have come here to attend the National Association of Broadcasters convention and also to see if I placed 3rd, 2nd or 1st in NASA's Videographer of the Year contest. I like coming here because there is so much neat stuff to see. I arrived at 10:30 am and this is the sight you see as you exit the jetbridge and enter the airport terminal...


Yep..slot machines. Slot machines are always a bad bet, but I think that airport slot machines have got to be the worst! Maybe they are trying to get you to empty your pockets of change to make the planes lighter...

After arriving and checking into my room at the Excalibur hotel, I made my way to the MGM grand hotel to find the monorail terminal. From there I took the monorail to the Las Vegas Convention Center to pick up my NAB credentials. After that, I had 4 hours to kill before a 6pm Sony event and I could either head back to my hotel or head over to the Las Vegas Strip...hmmm tough choice! I took a lazy route that took me through Harrah's, Caesars, Bellagio and Bally's



After the Sony event I walked the mile or so back to my hotel and tomorrow I begin my NAB adventure!

You'll win first this year! You should anyway. Maybe they'll add a category next year for videographer blog, and you can win that too.

Have fun in Vegas, but not too much fun.
