Hi Gang,
Did really good at this year's convention. Won the banquet centerpiece which was a set of tree ornaments in the shape of Texas (Theme was Christmas Texas style)

And then I was selected to choose a prize from under the tree, which was a oversized totebag filled with Sweepstakes supplies from the Segura Sweepers of Arizona. This makes the 2nd year in a row I've won a prize at banquet.

Overall this makes my 4th year in a row winning a prize at convention. 2004 in San Diego, was my only non winning convention.

But by far my greatest prize was seeing my friends Tom and Heather Carroll with their 4 daughters plus Heather's mom Joyce. They now live in Colorado Springs, CO (used to be in the Los Angeles area) and I had no idea they were coming to San Antonio. When I saw Tom and the family at Thursday's Welcome Reception it was definately my GRAND PRIZE of the weekend.

Please use the link below, help me earn extras swagbucks when naming me as the referral and then search so your "Swag Bucks" will begin adding up too.

There really weren't "a lot" of prizes this year. I won $100. OLS was very generous this year tho. They gave away tons of money. (Thank you Brent).

My biggest prize was meet my peeps! You guys were all a riot!!!

I won 500 .42 stamps too. My travel buddy and I always plan to split our prizes every year. She won 500 postcard stamps, so we each walked away with 250 each of the postcard and 1st class stamps. We should be set!

No Skunk This Year
Finally won a prize at my 5th Convention! In the Give Em The Boot game, my cowgirl boot, decorated with fantastic Neiman Marcus themes, contained a certificate for a Compaq Presario Laptop! And the convention hosts are shipping it UPS to me!
I can't complain, but it would have been pretty slim pickins' if Brent hadn't sweetened the pot over and over for other "winners" this year. Brent is da man.
