Last year's attendance
for the first mini last year we had 214 registered attendees. If I remember correctly only 4 of them could not make it. It was a very comfortable group of sweepers and non-sweepers. We actually converted 2 non-sweepers to new sweepers that I know of off-hand all as a result of the fabulous speakers and the spirited attitudes of all of the sweepers attending. My own BF was amazed at how many people in the group had one cars, trips, big prizes, etc. as he was one of those non-believers that people do win until he met me and then went and mingled with the crowd.

On another note, do not be afraid to come alone!! There will be several probably posting here how we encouraged them to attend and they will tell you how quickly everyone bonded and how friendships had been quickly made right from the start that weekend.

The hotel was really beautiful and the food was fantastic. And if I am correctly informed we will be placed in the big ballroom closer to the vending area and hotel rooms so those with walking problems won't have as far to walk.

Once they post the hotel discount code I would highly encourage anyone planning on attending not only to send in your registration for the convention but to also be sure to reserve your hotel room.

Can't wait to see the group again and hopefully Fabio will be amongst the group. I have his twin picture in case the group can't make it this year, but I am sure they will break a leg to get there.

Batten down the hatches! I'm going! Hope you all can stand me!

Just booked the hotel. Will send the registration $$ tomorrow. Woo hoo! Looking forward to it!

Was thinking of bringing hubby and kids (not to the convention though). They would hang out at the hotel and go shopping etc.

Do you know what time on Friday things start happening? If I wait for the kids to get out of school, then leave, we wouldn't get there until 6 or 7 pm.

On the other hand, I might leave all of 'em at home and just go myself! (might be a heck of a lot more fun too!)

Ohhhh Grace we are gonna have a great time I'm not exactly sure of the schedule for this year yet (positivelift will chime in I'm sure) - but last year a bunch of OLSers got together and had dinner at a pizza place across the street and I think the thing kicked off 7-8ish. There is plenty in the area for the family to do - but if ya leave 'em behind I promise what happens in Hershey, stays in Hershey

Grace - I am so glad you are coming! We have been so busy trying to secure the hotel and stuff...we haven't talked about the schedule yet. But when we have it planned, OLSers will be the first to know!

I wrote about my mom, the link is on http://www.abazias.com/contests/ and hit View Contestants, she is the first on Susan Bogush.

I have never asked for any votes, but I have voted. Even if you don't vote, please read this story if you have a minute, I would really love it people would know just how great my mom is. The Story is under Susan Bogush. I believe it is now on page 1

Thanks,
Susan

I just wanted to point out the fabulous graphic in the first post that Nickyle made!! She's workin on a Hershey siggy for me and since that graphic is a bit too big for siggy - she hoped we could use it elsewhere - so thought it would be cool to use here. She rules
