I won some post cards & a free night at the hotel. So I only paid for 2 nights! Three people in our club won a free night! It was a great prize! I also won some post cards.

My convention roomie treated herself to a "East meets West stone massage" & I splurged on a pedicure. While there we threw our names in a drawing they were running for sweepers only & my rommie won a free manicure which they let her trade out for merchandise from their gift shop. Because she won a vendor raffle we got to carry a Darth Vader voice change helmet thru security at the airport. Boy did we get some funny looks. It came with batteries, so every now & then she would push the button & it would start heavy breathing...LOL!!

Plus while I was at the convention, my son sold his old wreck of a car, which had been sitting & rusting up our side yard! Not only am I happy it is gone, he got $75 for it!

LUCK & LOVE!

I won a snail supply pack and a book of groovy tie-dye postcards - that promptly went to KB, because I don't take the time to enter snails...

Was really hoping to win the big cash prize, but maybe next year.

I won 3 crimper things, and four packs of postcards. I was seriously doubting that I was going to win anything, and I was getting super pissy about it, and then they called my name!

My wins
I won a stuffed elephant that when you squeeze his stomach he makes the elephant sound. It's supposed to be the mascot for one of the clubs that sent it in and it also had a roll of stamps with it. Yippeee...

I also won a tool box with sweeping supllies (and Steve won the same thing).

Both Steve and I had a great time!! Thanks guys,

I had a great time at my first convention. It was nice to put some faces with names here on the board. I won a wireless keyboard, a vendor basket with all kinds of goodies, and...1000 stamps!!

I won a year's subscription to OLS, a tshirt and a box of nice soaps.

Also enjoyed that jacuzzi and pool. Three of us ate at the pool cafe - we each had a hamburger and iced tea - $60 with the tip! But it was sooo good!
