Why do I want the trip?
1. I've never been to the convention before, and I would like to see what it is about.
2. I've never won anything great, with the exception of a trip to Spokane to see an Arena Football League-2 game as "AFL-2 Fan of the Year" [my city's team folded the next month].
3. We could really use a new car or two (our only car is a 1997 Hyundai Accent, which we call the "sardine can" because of its color and size).
4. I could really use a new laptop computer, as this one is over three weeks old and crashes at least once per week.
5. Some of my ancestors were from Fort Wayne [one was born there in 1809], and I'd like to see if I can research them.

I've never been to a convention, and I started this hobby in 2007. I've met so many awesome people here, and besides just meeting everyone, I'd love to learn more about snail mail sweeps. I don't currently enter them, since I have no idea where to start!

Thanks for the awesome contest!!!!

Time stands still.....

Question Why?
Because I'm a curious creature and I'd like to know for myself: What's all the hubbub, bub? Never attended, although I got into a group photo at a Baltimore convention several years ago.

I have never been to a convention, but would use it to energize me with my sweepstakes. I know there would be some good tips to learn. Plus, seeing other OLS'ers would be a bonus!

Thumbs up Convention Sweepstakes Entry
I would really like to bring my husband to a sweepstakes convention. I diid go to one a few years ago in Detroit with my parents. They go every year and love it! I very much enjoyed the tips/tricks I learned from the speakers and other attendees. There was also a speaker from the postal service that provided great insight into mail-ins. This time I'd ike to learn more about online entries - specifically Facebook and Twitter entries.

I would love to go to the Sweepstakes Convention in Ft. Wayne. It's just a hop, skip and a jump away. I think under 3 hours.
I have been to 5 or 6 national conventions. I love seeing old friends and meeting new friends.
It really gets me motivated to enter more sweepstakes when I hear about others winning.
I hope to learn more about social network sweepstakes such as Twitter and Facebook.

I have been to two conventions and both were amazing! I want to go to see all the great people I have met at the other conventions and see what this one has to teach me!

I have never been to a convention before, but, I have "lived" thru the pictures from the previous conventions and all the fun everyone had. I would like to learn more about blogs, twitter, snail mail! I know I would have great adventures from this! I have never met any other ols members so that would be awesome! Thanks for the chance to win!

I would love to attend the Convention to learn more about this little hobby that has turned out to be so much fun (and sometimes prospersous!) for me. I think it would be great to meet other people who share the same interest in sweeps that I do. And, I think it would be fun to enjoy the sites and activities Fort Wayne has to offer.
