Pole Position

I was a speaker at the SW IAEE meeting in Las Vegas today. We met at the Pole Position, a new place that just opened in December. While there are meeting rooms upstairs, you can buy out the whole facility for 500 people. Your attendees can drive go karts around a racetrack. (There is a video on the website). This would be great for team building. While it is not a restaurant, catering is available.
