Las Vegas POCA 2000 Fun Rally
The early morning view from our room at the Plaza Hotel. The Plaza Hotel is headquarters for the POCA members. Although, the hotel is older, it has perfect facilities for the event, including cars on display inside of the hotel! We had a two room suite on the 21st floor overlooking Fremont Street. The room was clean, service was great, all of the hotel staff were super and the price was right!
