Monday morning found a line waiting at 7:30 to get into the IWJG Pavilion at the Tropicana… By 9:30 there was a lot of activity in the room and even though this Las Vegas is one of our smaller events and that it was earlier than normal, we had a line waiting to get in all morning…Look at the pictures on our Facebook page and you can see that the show stayed busy all day until we closed.
