Happy New Year! We hope you are all enjoying your time away from school, books, and homework. After the epic victory over Oklahoma State and conference play upon us, it’s time to start planning for the Grand-daddy of all basketball weekends, the WCC Tournament in Las Vegas, March 6-12. By some divine agreement between Gonzaga’s Academic Calendar and the Basketball Gods, this year, the tournament kicks off the first weekend of our Spring Break, which calls for two things: more Zags in Vegas and more reason to celebrate.
To make your trip more enjoyable and affordable, we’ve been working hard to wrangle up some killer deals, including a contract with the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino for discounts on hotel rooms. We partnered with this casino last year as well, and for those of you weren’t there, it was unreal. Ideally placed on the South Central end of the Strip, we encourage everyone to book a room at the Monte Carlo so that we can make it the Gonzaga and Kennel Club headquarters.
To book your room and receive the Kennel Club discount click “LINK” below or past the URL into your browser.
***Also note you can receive a discount for the nights of Thursday (3/7) through Monday (3/11). Gonzaga usually doesn’t play until Saturday evening (because of seeding), but make sure to stick around for Monday night (the WCC Championship Game) before engaging in other Spring Break activities on Tuesday.***
If you need to call Monte Carlo at 702-730-7000. USE THE CALL CODE: XGUKC13
IMPORTANT NOTE: Be sure to book a room with only two guests, because the Monte Carlo will charge you an extra $30 per person per night for over two guests.
Cheers to 2013, new beginnings, a 12-1 record, and the second weekend in March! As always direct your questions/concerns firstname.lastname@example.org.
