The 2018 LASD Roundup will be held April 8th through April 11th, 2018 at the Riverside Resort and Casino located at 1650 Casino Drive Laughlin, Nevada 89029.
The cost to attend the Roundup will be $38.00 per person.
The Hospitality Room will be open from 12 Noon till 10:00 PM on Sunday and 8AM till 10:00 PM Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
PLEASE NOTE THAT IN ORDER TO COME INTO THE HOSPITALITY ROOM, YOU HAVE TO HAVE PAID YOUR ROUNDUP REGISTRATION FEE OF $38.00. SOME PEOPLE WERE UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT IF THEY DID NOT PARTAKE OF THE FOOD PROVIDED, THEY DID NOT HAVE TO REGISTER AND PAY THE FEE. WE HAVE TO PAY FOR THE USE OF THE ROOM REGARDLESS WHETHER WE HAVE FOOD OR NOT. THE FOOD WAS ADDED FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL THOSE WHO ATTEND. BASICALLY THE FOOD PAYS FOR THE ROOM. IF WE DID AWAY WITH THE FOOD, WE WOULD STILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THE USE OF THE ROOM.
Last year retired personnel from West Hollywood Station, Firestone Station, Detective Division, Lennox, Norwalk, Lakewood, Malibu, East LA, Carson, Aero, San Dimas, Antelope Valley Stations, Industry Station and SEB/ESD conducted their own reunion luncheons and gatherings. This year there will be an SBI Dinner and a Cigar night. We will also be having a Karaoke/Dance night. I can tell you that the four days at the Roundup fly by pretty fast. These mini-banquets are a good way to make sure that you get to see and talk to all your old friends and partners. As usual, I will be posting a list of all those groups planning separate gatherings.
Regular rooms are $33.00 per night. The RV Park is $22.00 a night.
For those of you that have pets and want to bring them, the Riverside has a limited number of hotel rooms where dogs are allowed and you will have to check with the hotel for details and prices. We have 250 rooms set aside for our event. The RV Park has full hookups which include utilities and Cable TV (sorry no phone). Check in time on Sunday is 4:00 PM and all other days are 2:00 PM. Check out is 11:00 AM. To make your reservations, please call 800-227-3849. Ask for the LASD Roundup. The code for hotel rooms is C/LASD8. The code for the RV Park is LASD18. All those attending the Roundup are responsible for making their own hotel reservations. I would not wait until the last minute to make your reservations. Remember that the hotel has a cut-off date on room reservations which is 14 days prior to the event. If you fail to make your room reservation by the cut-off date, you will not receive the LASD room discount.
