2010?
I may try to make it next year, depending on where and when, but I can't find any info on the 2010 convention here...KB or someone in the know, can you give me more info?

You just may have to clear you schedule to do some wall sleeping, cuz the 2010 convention is in Minneapolis.

I do know it is over Labor Day weekend from what was discussed at the meeting. So clear that weekend for now until he releases the exact dates. All previous conventions have run Thursday through Sunday.

Labor Day Weekend would be awesome!

I might even have a pre-convention party at my place up in Northern Minnesota!

May not be able to do any Wall Sleeping next year. Why there is NEVER a convention near Virginia is beyond me. Unless I win some airline tickets...sigh.

Everyone just wear your Wal-Mart panties and I'll be there in spirit. And please, someone suggest DC or something for 2011...

Copy/pasting this (with some changes) from a post I've made in the past (for everyone's benefit, you just sparked the thought):

Quote:
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 DC area 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 600+ sweepers is no easy task - so you have to have a strong club and strong leadership to make it all happen

Thanks, kb. Yeah...I've probably said the same thing before. There is no sweep club in SW Virginia at all so I don't belong to one, but every year I want to go but they are all so far from me! Enjoy the convention and think of me, and I'll try as I do every year to work it out.

The Maryland group has hosted the convention in Baltimore. Sorry you missed it!

I am a real newbie
Sweep clubs... Are there any in Missouri? This is the first I heard about them. What do you do at the conventions?
