We have received numerous request from Prime Timers around the globe to have a 2016 Western Regional Gathering. We did not do one this year as we are hosting the Worldwide Convention here in Las Vegas. We have decided we will do one in 2016. The Gathering will be May 1-5, 2016 at the Stratosphere Tower Hotel and Casino on the world famous Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada. Room rates are only $40 a night. We are still working on the agenda but we will be having a pool party. The Stratosphere has a very private pool on the 24th floor and it will be exclusively ours for the party. All the information about the event will be on our website soon. Any questions or comments contact Gary Payne at

We all read about it constantly in newspapers and online. We've sadly become familiar with the words "Hackers", "Imposter Scams", "Fraud', and "ID Theft". We tend to be cautious in what we reply to and know when not to reply. Despite exercising caution, I'm sad to report to you that our organization was recently scammed. We have been awaiting the results of the six-week FBI investigation and police report. The first of those investigations has been reached with no results.
