We heard this rumor a while back, but great to have it confirmed by someone "in the know."

Several of us have agreed to meet up there in 2014.

TripletA & I will be there for sure!

Hotels are still being scoped out for this event and the city location isn't locked up even. Possibly Orlando though could be something a bit closer to West Palm Beach.

I'd like updates- I would love to finally go to a convention- especially since DH said he'd come with me.

Based on http://www.sweepstakesconvention.com...onhistory.html
the city is listed as Orlando. Not sure if that is still valid.

It is not, that was the first "rumor" but now that it is official they will move forward. Many cities being looked at currently. The final destination and details will be released during the 2013 convention.

How cool would that be? Six toed cats and Hemingway's whiskey! Nice choice!

Thanks for the clarification, KB. Either way, I really want to attend my first national convention and will be able to attend in FL.


Until next year, there will be an answer, let it be

Cool
Hope it isn't during "love bug" season. We went to Orlando once in late summer and Disney World (and our car) was covered with them.
