A day trip to Hoover Dam, sign up before 20.4.2016

For networking with Finnish researchers at ICGRT Conference, please, join us for a jolly day tour to Hoover Dam and Boulder Strip on Sunday 5th June.

During the day, we will take a peek at the historical and current Las Vegas and it’s surroundings, as a part of the economics, politics and culture of the southwestern corner of the USA. At the Hoover Dam, we will look into the history and construction of the dam, and also step over to Arizona. The bus will drive along the Boulder Strip, revealing a sight of the growing Las Vegas with new neighbourhoods and local casinos outside the Strip. At the bus, we are looking forward to create some new interesting contacts, as well to cherish the old ones, and have some lively discussion on gambling and latest research.

The bus will leave at the conference hotel, The Mirage at 9 AM, and we will return latest by 6 PM.

The trip is sponsored by the EHYT association and the Finnish Foundation for Gaming Research. Details on lunch and additional program will be revealed as soon, we have more information on the head count of participants.

The tour will be guided by Ms. Pauliina Raento, http://www.helsinki.fi/geo/staff/raento/
