As always, please use the Star Spangled Celebration website for your up to date information!

See you in NH!!

Calling all singing sweepers!
We will be attending the NH Fisher Cats game on Saturday July 4th as part of our convention activities. The New Hampshire Fisher Cats are the Double-A minor league affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. The opponents for that night are the Portland Sea Dogs who are the Double-A minor league affiliate of the Boston Red Sox!
Each fully registered convention attendee will receive a ticket to the baseball game which will include a buffet dinner and seating in our own special section. A fireworks display will immediately follow the game . It should be a great time! For baseball fans there should be a great game and for all sweepers there will be time to socialize.
The convention is planning prizes for the game and the Fisher Cats have offered us some amazing once in a lifetime opportunities!
The first that we would like to announce are the opportunities for one person to sing the National Anthem and another to sing God Bless America during the 7th Inning Stretch.

Would you like to sing at the ballpark?

Send us a video of yourself singing either God Bless America or the National Anthem.

Mail your videos to:

NH2009
PO Box 69
North Sutton, NH 03260

We will forward these videos to the Fisher Cats and they will select their two favorites! This opportunity is only available to convention attendees and videos must be received by May 1, 2009.
This info is also available on the NH2009 website at http://www.nh2009.com/id40.html

We can't wait to hear you sing!

Thumbs up Speakers? Jeff Fineman?
I heard that Jeff Fineman was the best speaker at the 2008 convention in Texas.

I heard he had lots of great ideas on winning and stories (interesting, funny, informative) about his 25+ years in the business (he was president of DL Blair and Ventura or Marden-Kane).

My friend Patti told me he is speaking in New Hampshire. Is that true?

Tall Ships in Boston
The tall ships will be coming to Boston July 8-13. Anyone who will be spending a few days in New England after the convention may want to consider a trip to Boston Harbor to see them.

http://www.sailboston.com/home.html

That is the Sail Boston 2009 website where you can see the 50 or so ships that have already registered to sail into Boston Harbor. Some of these huge sailing ships from around the globe are hundreds of feet in length and powered by dozens of sails!

The pictures are stunning, I can't even imagine them in person!
