Las Vegas Public Defender Retreat

Maybe I'm just fixated on Las Vegas today as I wait for the caucus results, but this CLE (continuing legal education) program for public defenders and private defense counsel sounds great -- and, it's only $90 for the weekend. Check it out here. There's even a poker tournament:

Sunday afternoon, 2 pm to 5 pm??: After the MCLE program, we will be holding the 2008 World Defender Poker Championship. Sara Cooper, a public defender from Arizona won the 2005 title, and Public Defender David Daniel from Media Pennsylvania won the 2006 event. Entry fee will be $50 per person, (pay in advance with your Retreat Registration).


Each entrant will receive $500 in tournament chips, and the blinds will start at $5-$10 and go up every 20 minutes. Prize pool will be paid to the top 10 places, along with trophies, merchandise, and bragging rights. All entered will also get a neat Retreat T-shirt! (Register soon, limited to the first 50 entrants.) It will be patterned after the World Series of Poker and WPT events that have been all over the TV lately.

If I hadn't made a New Year's resolution to not get on an airplane in 2008, I'd be very tempted.
