It may not be for you as it isn't cheap and aren't into meeting people.

I haven't been able to go as I always worked when they are held but not this year!

I will be going this next year!!

Oh my gosh, I will finally get to meet you Julie as I will be going ( I live 90 mins away lol) too cool! I am so excited this is my first convention!

I'm going because I've never been to one before, and I am excited to hear the speakers, as well as meet my fellow OLS members. I am social here, and am excited to get to actually meet people that enjoy the same things I do.

I'm excited for the prizes as well, but for me, it's mainly social, since quite a few of my "friends" from on here are going!

Yay! Two of my favorite OLSers are going. Rich and I will be there for the first time this year. Sounds like we four first timers have to get together!

Though I've never "met" you here on OLS before, I'd really like to meet you in person. Your post made me laugh. Here's hoping you are in Fort Wayne in June!

I had the same question, so I'm really glad you asked.

I've never been to one of these conventions (I have been to ones for work before) and lately I don't have a lot of time to sweep anymore, but there's no guarantee I'll have a job after December and there will never be a convention closer to me than this one...

Plus, I would dearly love to meet my namesake, Jewel, among others posted here. I'm definitely tempted just to meet some people in person.

One request.. can you print people's avatars on their nametags??? I don't always remember people by their names. LOL

w T I <3 OLS!

I'll be the one with no name tag...You all will be more likely to like me in person as opposed to knowing my screen name up front!

You and I share a birthdate...so heck yeah...Oh, gosh, KMG365, I've always wanted to meet you, PLEEEEEEASE go to the convention!

I will likely be going...and wanna meet anyone that is more kind than mean, and more into having fun as opposed to complaining.

So yes...please go!

Nah. I like you now, so seeing your nametag would boost your approval rating up front.

w T I <3 OLS!

..

$200 for registration fees???

That's ONLY if you're an EARLY-BIRD ... after Dec. 31st. it jumps
up to a whopping
$250 ....

That's a week's paycheck!!!

Sorry.... but that's a bit much just to socialize with someone else that
enjoys the same hobby as I have.... let alone hotel, fuel, and food cost.
