Haha! How Fun! Half the Residents of Cranfills Gap, Texas To Be Flown to Vegas Next Weekend

Saw this in the DMN. Cranfills Gap is called the quintessential American Town and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Bureau decided to send the ones who can go up to Vegas next weekend. I drove through Cranfills Gap about 6 months ago on my way home from Austin- went from Hamilton up to Meridian.

Up to 120 people – those who could get off work and were over age 21 – will fly in one jet to Sin City next weekend and stay in swanky hotels, eat at fancy restaurants and see glitzy shows – all for free. The catch: They'll be followed the entire time by video cameras for tourism commercials to air early next year.

They won't get any spending money to gamble or shop during their few hours of free time each day. But for many in the town about 75 miles southwest of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, it's a perfect pre-holiday getaway.

"It couldn't have come at a better time," said Tanya Davidson, 33, who plans to marry her fiancé in a drive-through wedding chapel there. "We had decided to get married at the end of the year or early next year, and when we heard about this trip, we said, 'Let's do it there.' "
