For some reason, this guy snapped a picture of me , so I thought it was only fair to make sure I got his pic, too.

I am so glad that you all had the times of your lives! I feel so left out, but hey, I plan on being there next here...We have a whole Indy bunch here that can work something out I am sure!

Bewitched- in answer to your question about yo momma selling stamps- Guess that makes you a crack baby!! Haha

What would all of you recommend us doing that want to go next year; what should we be saving, buying and planning on bringing? (Besides clean underwear!!). I really want to do go, but don't know what they do there, how much money you need etc...I am sure there are others that want to know too.

Looking forward to 2006 Convention, and I have always wanted to go to Phoenix!!

Thanks again for all the pics! I miss my Sista's now that I am working full-time! But once I get my groove back- I will be back to hardcore sweeping again!

I am a spiritual being experiencing a human experience. it's all about love & light.

Clean underwear is a must

The $$ part is up to you - I suggest, if able, getting your registration in by 12/31 to get in at the $145 price. The room is $115 a night so depends on if you split that with someone and how many nights you are there, then whatever your travel will be are the basics. You'll have a few meals on your own - this year there was a continental breakfast each morning (as well as one at our hotel), one boxed lunch and the banquet provided in our registration fees. We ate out the rest of the time - usually something quick and easy. There is a huge vendor room - this year had 44 vendors, selling every kind of snailing supply you can imagine, selling their newsletters, tshirts, etc - budget yourself if you are so inclined. I thought I would spend a lot more money in there than I did, but I knew I only "needed" a few things, plus it helped I won one of the vendors drawings!

The days are pretty full with convention stuff, during off times they usually have outings, time for exploring the area, that kind of thing - keep an eye on the convention website and I will update our threads as soon as all of that information is released.

Raffle information will also be released in the future as far as "what to bring" you can determine that after reading about the raffles and if you want to participate. The convention itself was all very casual dress and the banquet most people opted to dress up a bit - but its usually whatever is most comfortable. Again, as all the information is released on the site I will also keep OLS informed in case everyone doesn't check the site out constantly

and MAKE SURE you pack it in your carry-on! Just in case you arrive and your luggage doesn't (like it happened to me!). I don't know if Xan will be there next year to drive everyone to Wal-Mart!
