Sweeping is a hobby I adore
A trip to the convention would ensure I learn more
Pinterest, Twitter and Online-Sweepstakes are my favorite tools
If we all don't learn how to use them better we will look like fools
Salt Lake City is calling my name
To not be there would be a shame

I would love to attend a convention and meet other people who enter sweepstakes. I have won trips, ipads, one TV, baseball tickets and many other events. It's a fun hobby and I enjoy sharing sweeptakes. Times are harder now and would love to sign up for convention, juts too costly. My dream is to attend a convention someday and bring my best friend. Love online sweepstakes and grateful for the people that run it.

I would love to go to the 2013 convention in Utah! I've never been to Utah and would love to see the area. The hotel looks great! I've been to one convention, last year in Atlanta, and had a great time. I loved the speakers and meeting other sweepers and hearing about their wins. Thanks for giving us this chance to win!

<< If you have attended before tell us what you have enjoyed about past conventions and what you are looking forward to at this convention! >>

I went last year for the first time and enjoyed meeting OLSers. I look forward to seeing my friends again and meeting OLSers. TY for this annual sweepstakes!

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

I would like to win so I can meet a bunch of other sweepers! I have never been to a convention but they sound like fun.

I sweep nearly daily but don't have hours and hours to pour into it. So, what I'd like to get out of the convention most - is insights on how to make my time most efficient.

While I know alot of things about all the various ways/methods to sweep, I guess there's room for more knowledge, but what I REALLY would like is to have a few too many margaritas with OLS

Smile Junior Sweepstaker - Hoping for the "Second Time Around"
I attended my first Sweepstakes Convention last year in Atlanta, GA. The experience was phenomenal. The people were gracious to new "sweepers", and we all received great information, insight, and variations on how to better our odds, and ways to make a sweeper's life easier.

The motivation one obtains from the Convention is beyond compare. I talked to many people about their experiences of being a Sweeper, and it was great hearing all the fantastic things they have won, but better yet, how they met some of their best friends during these conventions.

It was great to see a couple who had met at a previous convention, get married at the National Sweepstakes Convention in Atlanta (inviting everyone from the convention to celebrate in their nuptials.) You definitely do not get to see and/or do that at a "regular" convention.

The National Convention is a way for Sweepers to come together, gather information, get motivated, make friends, (and the icing on the cake), win great prizes.

I attended my first National Convention last year and had a blast ! I met so many great people and enjoyed "running" prizes to tables. Can't wait for this year's convention !

I would love to go to the convention in SLC to be able to experience the comraderie of fellow sweepers. To meet them and hear their stories of how they got started in this crazy hobby of ours. I would hope to learn how to win prizes I really want to win!

Thank-you for the opportunity to win this great trip. It would be fun to surprise my husband with a 30th anniversary trip!

It has been TOO many years since I was able to attend convention. I sure would love to go this year. Hopefully there will be classes on social media winning... the classes are always SO helpful!

My Entry
I've never attended -- never even made it to a local get-together. I would love to meet other members in person. I'm not sure what I would hope to win since I'm not quite sure how it all works at the convention -- perhaps lots of tips for entering and finding contests? I love to travel so I think it sounds like fun.
