Friday Night at the Mirage - Silver Strikes Update

They have been filming Terry Fator and his wife at the Silver Strike machines playing for the new Terry Fator strikes.

It's a promotional tape to be used in the near future. Both Terry Fator and his wife played $50 each and won 5 strikes each which was given out to the crowd and Mr. Fator signed the strikes. What a great night.

Bill and Sue got a strike with Charlie and they had a ball.

Mirage is getting more strikes delivered tomorrow. I really think this will change the world of striking. Not only does this advertise Terry Fator strikes but all strikes and collecting strikes.

I had two collectors tell me today that they played for the Four Queens strikes but didn't go over to the El Cortez or Mirage but would have if their strikes had been colorized. They expressed that they like the colorized so well they would collect them even though they are clad.

I have had quite a few phone calls and all have been so positive, it sure is nice. Wish we were there but everyone has helped by keeping me in good updates.

President's Message

Hello Silver Strikers,

The best time of the year for our club is upon us. That's right!  Our annual Forum, Club Meeting, and "can't stop talking about it" Party.  I am looking forward to seeing each of you in Vegas.

Please remember that all activities are being conducted at the Four Queens Hotel & Casino located in downtown Vegas (see web site for dates and times).  Speaking of the Four Queens, if you haven't signed up for their slot tournament, don't delay. It is Monday and Tuesday, June 20-21, 2011, during our annual get together. I hear the quarter pound silver token looks great. Also this year, the Four Queens will have a .999 fine silver Delta Queen red cap, a limited edition Delta Queen (bird on bridge) blue cap, and a $300 Silver Strike of the Delta Queen.

I can't wait to share what's going on at the Mirage, El Cortez, and Circus Circus with everyone.

Hope to see you there!

Four Queens Carmen Amaya $300 Strike - Shaun Webster had the prototype delivered on 2-14-11, and the gaming prototype was delivered 2-15-11. They are in the process of minting the strikes, and then they will be sent for the gold plating. It looks like we can expect them to be back in Vegas sometime during the first two weeks of March. They should be able to give us a fairly accurate delivery date by the first of March.

Not only is Sunshine busy minting strikes, they are working on artwork; and lots of it. El Cortez is working on artwork for their new house strikes, as well as a red cap. The Mirage is looking at some artwork using Terry Fator. That's a great idea. He has lots of characters that should look real cute in clad or silver. The Mirage is also considering red caps. Circus Circus has Silver Strike machines, but we are still waiting to hear if they are looking at artwork.

I know everyone is excited with all the casinos bringing back their Silver Strike Program, but keep in mind that all of this will take time. I am looking towards the end of May/first of June to get all the Silver Strike machines back in these casinos and loaded with strikes.

Remember, the Four Queens Silver Strike Tournament is scheduled for June 20-21, 2011; and the CC&GTCC Convention is June 22-25, 2011. Looks like we will have a great time at tournament and convention with more casinos to get Silver Strikes from and lots of people to see.

A special thanks to Sean Saar, Sunshine Mint, and Shaun Webster, Four Queens, who have kept the Silver Strike program alive. The Four Queens Silver Strike Tournament has kept this group together with Shaun and Todd running a perfect tournament for Silver Strikers. These last two years the tournament has increased in participation as well as the club picking up new members each year.

Sunshine Mint has all rights to the Silver Strike program and things are already in full gear. The first definite yes was from Rick Ronca at the El Cortez. As the El Cortez starts celebrating their 70th anniversary in May they plan on having two silver strike machines with four new house strikes and a red cap by June for CC&GTCC convention. I know there are many collectors who love the anniversary strikes and knowing Rick I am sure he will surprise us with some good looking strikes. Sunshine has been talking with the Mirage and Circus Circus and this is just the beginning. Convention is going to be great this year so everyone needs to start making plans for this June to be in Vegas. The Four Queens is having their Silver Strike Tournament on Monday and Tuesday June 20, 21, 2011, with convention starting Thursday and our club party Friday night.
