I was just wondering if anyone was going to this convention? Is it THE convention or one of many held during the year and has anyone gone to one of these before?

I am going as a sweeper and when I told my friend she asked if she can sell stuff. (She has a small printing company - t-shirts, signs and promotional items (can print logos, company names etc.. on anything.) Actually, I don't know what sort of things she could sell as she doesn't do stationary (she subs that out.) Would she pay for a booth; how does that part work? I/we would love to meet you and anyone from this site there; wish a group of us were going. I'd better get my registation form mailed in quickly. It sounds like a lot of fun and I'm eager to learn more about sweeping.

 Guess we need an updated list as a new year has rolled around and the 2008 Convention will be in San Antonio. Are you going? This will be our 4th Convention and you always meet the nicest people there. People who enjoy sweeping and are successful  at the hobby  year in year out.

There is a chance I will go.  It all hinges on whether or not I have a job by then.  I can stay with my ex-husband and his wife, so don't have to worry about hotel...Just the GAS!  That could break the bank!

I would love to be there! Is there any more info out there or a website? Dates,cost ?


San Antonio is a wonderful location. I have been twice and would recommend staying on the river if the convention is located there. Drury Inns are my favorite hotel for the money. Free cocktail hour ,snacks and breakfast. Check out the one in the old bank building . Very cool  1930's architecture and well preserved. Also check out the web site visitsanantonio.com , they have great hotel rates in their S.A.V.E. section. Do I sound excited?

Here's a link to the convention site:  http://www.lonestarstampede.com/ 

 I agree on the Drury Inn ~ they had good deals while my daughter was going to school at Trinity in San Antonio (still a bit pricey for this single mom w/4 kids, but lots of perks).  You may still be able to wheel and deal a good price if you mention Trinity U...*shrug*  worth a shot anyway!

 (Ooops, hope it was okay that i listed the site...Mr. Sweepy?  Lemme know if I need to go sit in the corner for a while)

HAHAHA! Corner time for you! (o: Convention, that would be cool. For those of us that can't attend, we should do a live chat or something, that would be neat too for those of us that are, er, well, like me, have no extra moolah at this time!


Online live chat convention, that would be neat,

Ah, I cannot imagine Mr. S. making you sit in the corner for posting convention site.  Info you provided was extremely helpful.
