I do not do snailmail and would have no use for postcards or even stamps (pay all bills online). Enlighten me, please.

The supplies are mainly those for snailers. Lots of envelopes, postcards, etc etc are the main vendors. However all the vendors have many raffles you can enter by buying raffle tickets from them. It is eye opening for non snailers to check out all the 'snailing swag' you can use for that perfect snail entry!

Sweepstakes Supplies are any supplies you would use to enter sweepstakes, track sweepstakes, organize sweepstakes, visualize winning sweepstakes, attract luck, etc. Most supplies are for those who enter by mail, but sweepers are creative people and you just never know what you might find that will help you with your hobby.

They do not sell laptops, computers, etc., but have been known to give them away with their raffles along with many other electronic items.

I really want to go this year but at this point I would be going alone from upstate NY. Is anyone else going from my area? Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, etc? It all seems a bit overwhelming to me as to what to enter before it starts, etc. I need some pointers and suggestions please... Thanks so much.

Go with the attitude of havin' fun meetin' sweepers from around the country. We're all gatherin' for lotsa fun, friends and prizes! You may not know anyone before the convention but you will make lastin' friendships by the time the convention is over.


Don't need to buy all your raffle drawin' tickets right now - you either buy a few at a time or just wait til you get to the convention and buy them. The bonus of buyin' them online before the convention is you will also be entered in special drawings for buyin' tickets online.


Most vendors also have raffles. Their prizes range from sweepin' supplies to electronics and everything inbetween. You can buy tickets for the vendor raffles durin' the breaks while at the convention.

Oh, gee - I could actually go to this one if it's not right when my kids start school. It's not that Atlanta is close, but I'd have a place to stay roughly 2 hrs away. Maybe could swing hotel for a night or two... EEP!

Wondering about the word "party" for the convention kickoff. Is it a meet & greet with mingling or are there scheduled events that last for three hours?

Convention Kickoff Party from 6-9 PM on Thursday
http://atlantaga2012.com/Schedule.html

Wishing & hoping & thinking & praying, planning & dreaming... and entering!

We are planning a party with food and prizes along with some fun!

Check out our new schedule with clickable links and more information regarding convention events. We will try to keep adding information so that everyone can be fully informed of expectations during the convention.
