Hmm, sounds kinda interesting. I see that the fees cover "admission to all sessions"--what sort of sessions are we talking about? Lecture type things?

I'm a little hesitant because I have a "thing" about eating catered/banquet food. But it does sound fun.

I have never been to a sweeps convention. This will be my first one. I am excited. Now I need to make arrangements for flight and room.

Kingsweeper,

Curious - what did you think was so 'wow' about the San Diego convention?

I have never attended such a convention and I am mulling over the idea of attending this upcoming one.
