Going to the Convention in Dearborn!!
Gosh me and the girls can't wait to go. This is our 1st one and we are stoked. I just started sweeping in June 2006 and so far I've won a Conair Deluxe Foot Spa ($250). What should I expect at these Convention Things? I do plan on getting hammered everyday.... Tee hee.... Here's a few pix of me, boyfriend and 1 buddy who is coming to the Covention.... Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.... Take Care All..........

Wow this is #4 for you?? What do we expect? and how long are these sessions at the Convention? Like I said in a reply to Pamcakes, I have paid for the Convention Fee and I haven't recieved anything back. So, I'm a little curious about what to expect.... Are you excited too? I'm totally bringing my camera.... Talk 2 u soon....

I like you

As far as what to expect, they'll be posting the schedule in the coming months and you'll probably get a packet of information in the mail.

A general guideline (at least for the past 2 and only ones I've attended) have gone somethin like this:

Thursday evening: Welcome reception - lots of mingling and hanging out. Usually a cash bar and some snacks - lots of prizes given away, etc.

Friday: Breakfast, vendor rooms open, general sessions in the morning and afternoon. Evening is usually free and they have excursions available for local attractions.

Saturday: Generally some morning sessions and the afternoon free for excursions or just kickin it - then resume in the evening for cash bar and the big banquet.

Sunday: Sessions in the morning and dismiss around noon.

Tons of giveaways throughout the weekend and a great opportunity to make new friends from all over and exchange sweeping tips and best wins - its a blast Definitely bring your camera, you can check out the threads from 2005 and 2006 and view those pics

Wow what a good time it sounds like.... And thanks, I like you and the people on this site... So much useful information and so on. Should I email the people putting on the Convention this year to check the status of my package? I'm flying in around 4:30pm on Thursday, will I miss anything by coming up that late?

Great.. Thanks a bunch... I'll look for the OlS booth for sure and say my "hellos". Do you suggest a dress or a pant suit for the Saturday night banquet? Me and the girls are going to find a club to shake our money makers to. Tee Hee. Just wondering the attire so we don't have to change later.....
