February 25-26, 2012
Grand Sierra Resort
25 years since the last bus trip to Reno, the YSC is doing it again. Travel to the mountains in the comfort of a 54-passenger bus for a weekend of gambling, with an optional day of skiing at Mount Rose.
After picking up members in San Francisco and Oakland early Saturday morning, the bus heads to the Sierras, making a three-hour stop at the Silver Legacy Casino before checking into Reno's Grand Sierra Resort.
Sunday morning features either a visit to John Ascuaga's Nuggest in Sparks, Nevada, or an optional day of skiing at Mount Rose, one of the Tahoe region's highest resorts. The bus returns to the Bay Area by 8pm Sunday.
Included with the trip are $5 gambling credits at two of the casinos, and a $6 food credit at the Grand Sierra Resort.
Special thanks to long-time member C.B. Peterson for arranging this trip again!
