Today has been FABULOUS!! Lots of great presenters and EVERYONE was a winner this morning! Everyone had to go to the front and pull out an envelope and the minimum you had in it was $25 Visa GC - Kiss had a $50 Best Buy - someone near us a $100 Best Buy, etc - what a great start to the convention with over $10,000 in prizes given away the first few minutes! Having won the $25 GC and my fabulous new Vera Bradley bag, I'm quite the happy camper! A few of us explored DeBrand Chocolate at lunch and promptly poured that money back into the Ft Wayne community via the chocolates A wonderful lunch at the Trolley Bar and a great afternoon of speakers, including Brent! Heading out to celebrate vgmaster81's birthday shortly - should be a great night!

I knew that all would be having a good time.

No, that is absolutely prohibited at any and all conventions.

Congrats to everybody! I want to go to a convention sooo bad. My daugher is heavily 7 months preggers and I couldn't go this year. Wanted to. Sounds like it would have been a good convention. Anybody know when and where the next one will be?

Have fun and thanks for the updates!

(p.s. I finished reading the WHOLE thread and saw KB'S post about when they're going to announce next convention...what is that thread..."doesn't anybody ready notes"...hee hee)

Super sad that we couldn't make it again this year.

Would love to see a Convention held in Reno just once - we can get cheap rooms here these days!

Super jealous of the Vera Bradley bags too but sooo happy for all of you. Enjoy everyone and have a drink for me?!

Good Morning Y’all! We are getting sooooo tired but we are having a great time in Fort Wayne. We went to RibFest last night and then spent time with other OLSers at the Thirsty Camel. Tonight is the banquet, tomorrow we are visiting Ariyana9501’s house, then it’s a straight through 10 hour drive home because Rich has to work on Monday morning.
Our only regret is that missed the past few years and we will definitely do this again!
Thanks to all the wonderful OLS pros who are making the newbies feel so welcomed. What a nice group of people!

If a group or few people from Reno want to come to some conventions and put together a bid - they are certainly welcome!!
