CHOP CHOP Exciting News
SOUTHWEST AIRLINES just announced it is coming to Atlanta in Feb. 2012! That could be great news if you want to come to the convention but airfares are holding you back. Not only will SW be offering lower fares, but Delta will probably follow suit to keep their passengers. We could see an airfare war! YEA!

Wish I could book my flight to SLC in 2013!

That's GREAT news because I'd prefer to take Southwest as it's usually better pricewise. Perhaps they new our convention was coming to Atlanta. LOL

I know that we have quite a few coming from Michigan. Send me an email at atlantaga2012@gmail.com and let me know where in Michigan and I will see if I can help you connect with some convention goers from your neck of the woods.

Smile Convention
I would be happy to attend for a fee of $3000. I win an average of 3 radio station contests a month and 2 internet sweeps. I would be able to speak to an audience and tell them what I have learned the past 25 years of consistently winning. By the way that adds up to hundreds of wins over the last 25 years. $3000 is a reasonable fee to learn the tricks of the trade. The real irony is I got my start 25 years ago when I won $500 on Fox 97 in Atlanta.

It's a waste of time to argue with ignorant people.

I'm hoping to spend less than 3k for the convention. Anyone else have estimates on total cost (transportation + hotel + meals + registration)?

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