Beer Can't Post

So, I get on the airplane for Reno in a couple of hours. Only question I have right now is, what's the beer rule for BOD meetings? Is it served, or do I have to carry my own in?

I see USPA mettings scheduled for 3 days...it's it all the BOD meeting?
I only want to go for one or two days, which days will be 'open' meetings...anyone know?

All days are "open" unless the BOD decides to close the doors.
There are also committee meetings, which are sometimes more interesting than the general sessions.

The meeting rooms are surrounded by bars, slot machines, gaming tables, bars, restaurants...
Did I mention bars?
I'm in Reno and was just down at the meeting location.

If your phone rings, you owe.

I didn't even bring my phone. I did bring beer, and even shared one. They close the meeting, I'd go sit at a machine and play black jack. Along comes a nice woman offering free drinks, I say "Sam Adams" every time. When the meeting reopens, I'm set!

I think I lost around $100 total gambling (up at times, down others), but I guarantee I got more than my money's worth in beer, especially if you figure at bar prices! Shit at a dollar a beer, I'd have at minimum broken even. There were a couple of times when I'd get into a conversation, and think 'wow, my tongue feels thick!'
