Welcome Virtual Attendees!


We will be holding virtual RAFFLES during the convention. There is NO COST for a FREE VIRTUAL RAFFLE Ticket! All you need to do is post a reply to this message. If you have a BLOGGER Account, that's great. If you wish to post using other methods, then give us a nickname. We will announce names on a similar Message such as this with the winning nickname and the prize you won! We will post your BLOGGER name...or Nickname...if you win (winners may not hear back until after convention). Remember, we need a way to contact you via your post to let you know you won...so make sure you are using one of the methods listed. We will have other giveaways...so please understand posting here is ONLY for the RAFFLES. We will announce winners LIVE ONLINE during the Convention Pajama Party (where we pull the real raffle tickets) - so hey, you're there with us! You don't have to be online to win, though...just check back and see, or we will contact you if we have your email address. We will remind you of how it all works during the virtual raffle ticket pull...so, not to worry!

POST YOUR NAMES HERE NOW TO REGISTER FOR FREE RAFFLE CHANCES - please post only once, duplicates will not get a second raffle chance!

TONNER said...

IT'S EASY TO CREATE YOUR OWN BLOGGER ACCOUNT TO LOAD PICTURES AND SHARE WITH OTHERS HERE. THIS BLOG WILL ONLY BE POSTING PICS FROM THE CONVENTION ORGANIZERS - BUT IF YOU HAVE LINKS TO PHOTOBUCKET OR OTHER SITES, PLEASE, PLEASE SHARE THEM HERE! OR GRAB TOM C. AT CONVENTION AND PASS YOUR PICS TO HIM VIA A FLASH DRIVE (HE'LL HAVE HIS ON HIM)! WE'LL GET THEM INCLUDEED ALL AROUND SOMEHOW!

TONNER said...

If you post links to your images like this, you can use your own imaging hosting service:

I have never done a blog or left a blog but thought this is the perfect place to start!!!
What are the odds of your Mother and your Mother in law both going in for second time mammograms in the same week with the diagnosis not looking good for either of them??
Well it happened to me this week! First I was told about my mother in law on Tuesday and on Thursday( my day of graduating college) My Mum told me about her! So nerves are kinda shot here~
SO PLEASE buy those Breast Cancer Raffle tickets!!! SUPPORT finding a CURE FOR CANCER~

thanks to anyone in advance who does~
