I know of 2 families that might be going to the Phoenician in Scottsdale, Arizona for the Shabbos Chanukah Weekend. They have 6 men and can bring a sefer torah. They need 4 more for a minyan. With the current 50% SPG resort promotion you can get the nicest Starwood property in the US for 32K points for 5 nights and possibly have a minyan on shabbos.

Please let me know if you are going so I know if my friend will have a minyan.

According to google maps it is a 2 hour walk to the frum community. Are you sure there are frum people who live within walking distance to the Phoenician?

There are a few shuls in Scottsdale (and multple Chabad Houses all over Phoenix/Scottsdale area), so may be useful to PUTPAC.

What do you mean by "PUTPAC"? Can someone tell me is there is a chabad away from the main jewish community and near the Phoenician?

Oh, I feel old fashioned! :)

My friend actually did call the Chabbad and they did not know of anything that is less than a 2 hour walk.

This can be a great opportunity for someone who wants a great deal at a great hotel and have a minyan with a sefer torah on Shabbos!!
