2010 Convention
The 2010 National Sweepstakes Convention will be held September 2-5, 2010 in Bloomington, MN. All details can be found on the Lucky 21 Website.

Who runs the convention and decides where it will be?

There has to be a sweep club (or dedicated individuals) willing to come to a convention and put a bid in for it- "state their case" so to speak as to why their community should host the convention - if there is a 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 is then taken to the large group attending that convention and it is voted on. There is a lot of support from past convention hosts that will assist with details and items leading up to and throughout the weekend. 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/or strong leadership to make it happen. As you can see from the list below there have been conventions all over - any location is welcome to bid

Past/Present/Future Convention Hosts:

1990 - Lansing, MI
1991 - Clemson, SC
1992 - Arlington, TX
1993 - Annapolis, MD
1994 - Indianapolis, IN
1995 - San Diego, CA
1996 - Nashville, TN
1997 - Naperville, IL
1998 - New Orleans, LA
1999 - Arlington, TX
2000 - Bahama Cruise Convention
2001 - Orlando, FL
2002 - Louisville, KY
2003 - Baltimore, MD
2004 - San Diego, CA
2005 - Moline, IL
2006 - Scottsdale, AZ
2007 - Dearborn, MI
2008 - San Antonio, TX
2009 - Manchester, NH
2010 - Bloomington, MN
2011 - Ft Wayne, IN
2012 - Marietta, GA

Gang,
I'm gonna need your prayers because if my principal (I'm an office asst. at a middle school) has his way I won't be able to come.

So work your magic in hopes I can convince him and my immediate boss that I will get all my assignments done in order to go.

Crossing my fingers that I can join all of you Tiny MoMo, Cathy Vester, Pamcakes, etc.

Please use the link below, help me earn extras swagbucks when naming me as the referral and then search so your "Swag Bucks" will begin adding up too. http://www.swagbucks.com/refer/meuclafan
