Question 2018 sweeps convention update?
Just wondering if anyone had any current info on the tentative convention schedule.

Is there a get-together Thursday evening? A session Friday morning??? What about Sunday morning?

I haven't been able to find anything at the website. Sis was told that info/discussion could be found at "ss" but we don't subscribe to that publication.

Yeah, I've seen that. But nothing new. Pretty soon I'll be booking air flights and really need a firmer schedule!

Well, since it's after April 1st... It's $750.

Breakdown: $200 registration, $500 "bump up" drawings to platinum and $50 late registration fee

With convention just under 3 months away I'm surprised that a definite schedule hasn't been posted. Not sure why there aren't more details of what's going on as others who've planned convention had things posted by now or at least a tentative schedule.

Perhaps write the chair and ask so you can book flights, etc.

Yes. The $500 is optional for specific optional giveaways and can be divided into different levels of participation. You need to check the convention webpage and it will probably be clearer for you.

Winners never quit and quitters never win!

I sent an email a couple of days ago specifically asking if there was an activity planned for Thursday evening. Still no reply...

Check out the convention website. I have copied the page and question you might be interested in.

https://www.2018sweepersnational.com/q-a

Q: Can you tell me if you'll be following the "normal" convention schedule of meet & greet Thursday night, convention sessions Friday - Sunday and ending about noon on Sunday?



A: Yes, we will along with some learning breakouts Thursday during the day as we can schedule them in. As time gets nearer, we will set up and post the actual schedule as well as have one in the registration packets.

That's the info that was posted over 6 months ago. I want to know if they are sticking with that plan.

Hope This Helps
I messaged them on the FB page and part of the message I received was as follows: We are working on booking speakers and breakouts, etc. If you don't want to miss a single minute and plan to be there early on Thursday (or even Wed) and stay through at least noon/1pm on Sunday. The Funny Bus schedule is on the 'free time' Friday afternoon

Thanks for the update. I don't have many flight options from here. I just hope they are a little more firm on what they are doing before I have to click the "purchase" button!
