Future Convention Sites
2008 - San Antonio, TX
2009 - Atlanta will bid for 2009 at the 2007 convention - other clubs may also bid but just kind of "putting this out there" for the inquiring minds

Cash talks my friend. Usually large bills in non-sequential order under the table. Ya know, just like the Olympics.

Can't we just have it at your place, KB? Or maybe just skip the middleman & have it at a distillery?

Regardless of where anyone wants it - there has to be a sweep club willing to come to a convention and put a bid on it - "state their case" so to speak as to why their community should host the convention - if there is a Las Vegas club willing to do the work and can come to a convention, attend a Past/Present/Future Convention Hosts meeting and put together the bid for it - that would be fabulous There is no National Convention Sweepstakes Committee or anything like that - sweepers rely on the clubs to step up and host Pulling off a convention for 800+ sweepers is no easy task - so you have to have a strong club and strong leadership to make it all happen Hope to see you (and your club!!) at a convention with a bid!

Missed Meeting in '06
I wonder how many warm bodies are needed to put on a convention? Wish the notes to those planning meetings were available so that we could decide whether our club would even be able to put on a convention. In fact, it would be nice if there was a "packet" or "learners" guide that club leaders could request and bring to their members for discussion without having to wait an entire year to get the information at a National then return home for a year and then attend the next years National with a bid. As a leader, I'd be willing to foot the cost of mailing the materials to our club.

My Wins
