Sounds a bit pricey for those of us who won't know until practically the last minute whether we're going or not!

Maybe we can sleep in the van and after a day or 2 someone will take pity on us and let us use their shower? Or maybe there is a campground close by? Van space for cheap .If you're short we outta be able to fit at least 4!!! And if you're also skinny (I'm not!) maybe 6 !

HAVE FUN YOU'ALL!!

If you have a van you might be able to get a room outside of town for cheaper. Right now the cheapest is Motel 6 at $220 for 5 nights.

When the odor gets bad a coin will be flipped. Head means you land head first in the Mississippi and tales means you land tail first in the Rock River.

I would let you use the tub in my room but Binski will probably be sleeping in the tub.

How many passengers does your van hold legally? I could use a chauffeur.

What is the sweepstakes convention? I don't think that's very
far from me.

Do you have an estimate of how many OLS members are actually going to the convention?

This is who has responded thus far

In May I will probably post another poll so that those who have not decided can vote again - I really want to try to coordinate some "OLS Time" plus we will be hosting an OLS party on Friday night

Thank you.

Put me in the 'undecided' column.

I am new here... what happens at a convention?
Hi...

Um, I've been to all sorts of conventions before, but never heard of a "sweepers convention". What goes on there? What's it all about?
Maybe it's time to step out of my newbie comfort zone and check it out?
anyone else from New York going?

Alrighty, my money is all sent in, I'm officially coming! And I now have two roommates (who, like me, LOVE bottled water)
I still plan on having the Explorer, so there is room if anyone needs a lift anywhere, but for the most part I plan on just walking (crawling if need be) across the street to the convention.
Getting excited to meet everyone!!
