I went to San Antonio for my first convention. I looked at the previous year's pics beforehand to see what everyone looked like and tracked (stalked) them down. They were my instant best friends! Believe me, it's not hard to find the OLSers. (look: a. in bar or b. in smoking area or c. for guys handing out "I love Baked Alaska" buttons) The latter was the way I found KISS (my Dr. Pepper buddy for life) and B.A.

The National Sweepstakes Convention is a chance to meet up with sweepers from across the nation, and to add to your knowledge of sweeping. Sessions are held with speakers covering sweep related topics. There are usually sessions that everyone attends during the day with optional breakout sessions available afterwards. You are also able to shop from vendors that offer sweeping supplies. A banquet is also held which offers time to mingle with other sweepers and enjoy a great dinner. A variety of raffles are held during the weekend giving attendees a chance to win prizes. It is great to sit in a room full of sweepers and hear their stories and feel their enthusiasm for this hobby. Take a look at the website for the 2009 convention to get a general idea of what happens at a convention. The website is http://www.nh2009.com Hope to see you in Manchester! Karen H.

You will have instant friends coming to a National Sweeps convention. Those of us who come solo hook up with many as we have a common bond this crazy hobby. I mean where else will people get excited over winning a music download or candy bar. LOL

One thing I love about the convention's is putting names with faces.

I would love to attend. Unfortunately, my mom's birthday is July 4th and we always celebrate her birthday on her birthday. Otherwish, I would attend the convention.
