Smoky, FWIW re-reading of the first message in this topic shows that I really did provide the answer to the question asked:
can anyone direct us to the proper thread?
The topic I linked to gave the meeting place, albeit as Indio Casino, and the time (Friday evening for departure on Saturday morning). Having been to Indio only once, I honestly don't know if there are other casinos there and I must admit that I wouldn't have known about Spotlight 29 (the "Indio Casino" folks are referring to) had we not stayed there recently. I'm almost as much of a newbie as you, since this will be our first FMCA rally also.
If you read this message
, you'd see that, after I realized you had no idea where it was, I came back with a map location and a web site. Sorry that wasn't sufficient.
BTW to avoind confusion, be aware that the Spotlight 29 casino is actually in Coachella - see this message
