Extra Rooms at the Blackhorse Reunion

For those attending the June 2015 Blackhorse Association Reunion in Las Vegas, if you haven't reserved your room at the Venetian at the $100 rate, the clock is ticking down. Actually, it has already ticked down, but the hotel management just extended the deadline. The number of available rooms is dwindling quickly. Phone Mr. Perry Frias at 702-414-0355 and get that room. You can arrive 3 days before the Reunion and stay 3 days after the Reunion and get the same rate. Randall Ponder, Baton Rouge.See More
