Are you going?!
This will be my first convention, and I am quite excited. More so to meet up with my OLS pals and have a good time.

I have invited JackpotJoe, member of the Quad Cities Winners Sweepstakes Club and host of the 2005 convention, to come and chat with us and let us know what we can expect from this years convention!

I wish I could. Unfortunately, if I can afford to travel in June, it'll be to a betta show in Texas. I actually have fish to enter this year, so my other hobby will precede sweeping this year. However, I'm going to have to pay attention and see if I can go in 2006.

I'll be reading the threads in here with interest, that's for sure!

I hope I can go, I'm really going to try to. Depends on my work/vacation situation. It isn't that far from me, KB, are you going to drive?

Yup I will be driving. It's 4-5 hours from here. Tony's family is from that area so we drive that often

Hmmm...did some checking via Map Quest. 4hrs and 45 min from our house to Moline. I had completely forgotten about this! Nothing that I know of planned in June.
Let me see..

Can we have a convention sticky thread please KB.
I need to share a room and a car to get around.
I truly doubt it because the car, hotel, convention and food will be almost a thousand dollars and there is no way I can win or get that kind of cash.

I am praying and trying hard to think of ways to get there.

No we can not. I made a whole forum for it though and stuck 2 of the threads, shouldn't that count for something??

KB could you please send a PM to every single person on OLS and ask if they plan on joining us at Sweep 16?

Thanks!

Wow, what a great opportunity to meet everybody. I really would like to go, but it's not financially possible. However, now that I know about it, maybe it'll be possible to go another time. Hopefully, it'll be in California one of these years.
