Hey KB, are there any plans in the works yet for 2008? I think I read somewhere that the 2007 convention was gonna be in Detroit, is this correct?

I'd like to suggest that in 2008, the convention be held in a southeastern city, like Atlanta, Birmingham or Nashville. That way, I (and hundreds others) could attend. And talk about a party, us southerners know how to party with the best of 'em.

Just a suggestion. Perhaps mention it to Brent and see what he says.

Here's an answer I put together in another thread. The National Sweepstakes Convention has nothing to do with Brent - it is not an OLS function and is not run or controlled by OLS. However OLS, Brent and myself will support all future conventions, wherever they may be ~ that said........

There is no national organization or anything who plans these - it is up to individual clubs to step up and put a bid presentation together to present to the convention attendees to vote on where future conventions will be held

Past conventions and their locations......

We've tried to answer the call...
also, in reply to KB's note. The attendees at this year will vote on where the 2008 convention will be held (it is always voted on 2 years prior to the actual convention). The clubs desiring to sponsor the National Convention put in their requests to be considered and then it is put out to the attendees on the last day of the convention.

I believe when we were at the meeting last year there was a group from the southern states that was interested in the details of putting one together for 2008 and I have heard of one group from up north (like New Hampshire) that is grooming themselves to put in a bit for possibly 2009.

Our club was not ready to bid on a National so we put a "mini" convention together (which is turning out to have registrations for nearly the size of a national--150 so far and it's not until October 2006) for those on the east coast for those who maybe couldn't afford to go out west, couldn't get a seat at this year's convention or just want to attend. It's very similar to the National only one day shorter and runs Friday night through Sunday afternoon. It is listed under Local Flava and the links are within my signature. So far we have people coming from all along the eastern seaboard.

Just some more info for you.

I signed up to go on the free casino trip on Friday night. We don't have any gambling where I live & I need an opportunity to lose money.
