Looking forward to hearing all about your experiences when you return! :-)
There is a good chance that even though I've already gone and the itinerary is pretty similar to the one in San Diego that I may yet go to this one too...having serious ponderings today...as Coach Dean will be at this one and he was not at the last one...would SO like to meet him!

Ohhhh YOU! I had not given this convention a second thought until I saw your post. Here I am posting on the group board about sharing a room at the Embassy Suites with someone since, well, let's face it - I need to be budgeting on this one! It actually may be just the thing I need because I'm in a really big, bad slump right now, in more ways than one.
Most of you have seen the links and web pages by now about the upcoming SparkConvention in Cincinatti on Sept. 26th.
I know many of you on this Team are of limited means and certainly understand if this isn't possible for you, however I want to urge any and ALL of you to strongly, deeply, SERIOUSLY consider attending if there is ANY way that you can!
I traveled across the continent to be at the San Diego convention earlier this year in May and this was the start of something new for myself. Despite having a sister and her family living in San Diego for DECADES, I had never taken the time to visit. With the SPARK being there it was the perfect reason to finally break out of my shell and GO!
What an AMAZING time it was...! To connect with Chris (SparkGuy) Downie and all the other SparkPeople staff and fellow members....was just wonderful! Everyone was so genuine and sincere! From the morning walk to the closing moments the convention was non-stop INSPIRATION and MOTIVATION! The experiences shared by other members were so AFFIRMING and EMPOWERING!
If you are teetering and on the fence regarding whether or not to go, just DO IT! Every member OWES it to oneself to make the effort, take the time to BE THERE and be a part of some unlike anything you have EVER DONE! Woo hoo! :-)
