One of my English compatriots came up with this idea. Basically the challenge was to get ourselves photographed with one hundred different ladies over the course of an evening. The idea being that this would also get us talking to lots of ladies. Nice. There were six of us in all, three English and three American. The overall target was 100, with a mini-competition for a round of beers as to which national team could get the most. Obviously we had to have some ground rules:
- Don't approach single women, only groups; we didn't want to scare the hell out of people.
- Don't approach women with men; we didn't want to get our heads kicked in.
- No team blocking; the overall goal is the 100, the team with the most is the second goal. Therefore one team couldn't stop another from getting photos.
There was talk of a points system too (e.g. twice points for women kissing you in the photos) but we never bothered to agree on a set of rules for that...
We decided to start at the south end of the strip and work our way north to the hotel, hitting as many casinos on the way as possible. Team America got an early start on us by getting several photos on the bus on the way down there...
First place we spent a decent length of time was the MGM Grand which got us quite a few photos.
We then managed to weave our way between the casinos, cleverly getting more and more drunk whilst chanting football songs. We lost people in the group, we got flashed by ropey prostitutes, we played beer pong, we gambled, we generally behaved as one should in Las Vegas...
Sadly the beer affected our efforts later on in the evening and we collapsed back in our hotel sometime after 5AM.
Final count of ladies for the evening: well I'm not quite sure. Still collating all the photos... However I know we got photos with at least 70 different women. Which is pretty damn good if you ask me.
