Congrats to all of you winners!
I enjoyed the convention and met a few of you! Early on, I won a web cam and a $50 cash prize (money, money, money!) from OLS, so thanks! No wins at the banquet at all for me. I won a Coke package on Sunday - 2 trays, 2 glasses, and a puzzle.....but someone stole it off of my table when I went out for a few minutes. Not cool.

I had a blast and am glad to have met many of you. I see there are several of you I didn't get to see. Glad you guys won!!

I won:

$50 pot of gold (with $50 in gold coins inside)
Picnic basket with tons of stuff: sweeps supplies, peppermint bark, envelopes, usb, light etc
Backpack full of sweeper stuff: supplies, stapler, envies, note cards and a bunch more.

It was so much fun. I really really wanted to win cash or the car(s) but it was so much fun seeing everyone win.

All of us at the table won something kbsocial, panda, taz, kiss, rookiesmom, bakedalaska, rebel2003, janna, jannasbff.

I had so much fun!!

My wife won one of the $500 packs of Scratch Off Lottery Tickets. We stopped at the last Georgia Exit before entering South Carolina to cash our winning tickets. None of the tickets we won had been activated by the selling store so they couldn't give us our winnings. Said the tickets would have to be activated by the store where the tickets were purchased before they could be redeemed. Hope Tania gets this straightened out for us.

Tania and Karen are aware of the issue and are working on it. I had the same problem.

Congratulations! That is quite a haul for your first convention, I will bet you'll be back!

Can you tell me who it was that won the cars?

OLS also knows my Arkansas Sweep Buddy, Rhonda and Brian Pruitt. Does that name sound familiar for wins? She's usually pretty lucky!

Saturday morning I won another $25 cash from a sweepstakes club in Iowa. Love that cash! Saturday afternoon brought me one of those neat lunch totes with items from Bed, Bath & Beyond.

Saturday night was awesome! So much energy in the room! I was very fortunate to win $500 cash AND $500 in Best Buy Gift Cards. I feel very blessed. And I got to meet both winners of the cars. They are now my two BFF's Seriously, they are both lovely ladies and I was really excited for both of them.

And lastly, I won one of the Coke can safes this morning.

But the best part was meeting all the wonderful people that we share this hobby with. Very inspiring.

Since I'm a local I'm already back home sitting at my computer and ready to win, win, win!
