1st Pre-convention drawing held for NEMSC
We will be depositing the first batch of checks into the bank account on Friday, Feb. 25th. All of those who sent in payment are now registered and a confirmation will be sent out as soon as the bank clears the checks. Thanks so much for your patience as we transition from 2010 to 2011. We are really excited about this year's event which will be our 5th mini!!

The first pre-convention drawing was held tonight from all registrations received by January 31st. The winner's name is now posted on our website.

Now it's an all-out effort to get all of my OLS peeps out and in attendance this year so we can do some hoop la!!

Register soon...
We have been promoting the Northeast Mini at several one day sweepstaking events as well as to all at this year's National Sweepstakes Convention. At this time we have 58 paid registrations and look forward to getting several in now that the national is over.

Please send in your registration as quickly as possible to secure your spot at our mini this year. We will not be hosting one for next year (2012) in case you were waiting for next year to attend.

Hope to see you there!!!

I will have to look into that for you. I know they fly into the Harrisburg International Airport and there is other travel information on the hotel website. I live actually 2 hours east of where we hold the convention so I don't know the area that well.

Best to talk to the hotel people directly or visit their website. Will post anything I find out on the mini conventions website so that all have it.

The Holiday Inn where we hold the mini convention also has a complimentary shuttle. You do need to make arrangements directly with the hotel with flight time/pick up time in advance of arrivals. When making hotel reservations just ask the clerk what you need to do. Several of our attendees do fly in for the mini. Some may post here with details that may have helped them with the last 4 mini's.

I am getting ready to start ordering supplies, etc. for the mini.

If you are planning on attending and have not registered yet, please send me an email right away to 2010nemsc@comcast.net so that I know.

I will be working on the contract the remainder of this month to adjust for what I project I will be needing for the weekend.

I just noticed on my July 14th posting that I said to send an email to 2010nemsc@comcast.net. That is incorrect and not accessible anymore (it was for last year's emails.)

The correct email address to send emails for October 2011's is 2011nemsc@comcast.net

So sorry for the error!!!!

Registration Packets are in it's final draft and going out this weekend via email to all of those who are already registered.

If you don't have your registration in yet, it's time to get it in, the mail in raffle runs from September 1st through postmark date of September 24th, AND your check for registration MUST be received and cleared the 10 day hold which the bank requires before you are confirmed as registered. So in essence mailing today will just be making the September 1st opening of the entry period. Many wait and then can't make the deadline dates.

Registrations are starting to come in at a steady pace now. Thanks for your early registrations
