Spring Conference 2011: Door Prizes




ANNUAL GENEALOGY CONFERENCE AND GENEALOGY EXPO
Putting the Pieces Together

Friday, March 25, 4:00 to 8:30 pm and
Saturday March 26, 2010, 9:00am to 4:30pm
Marriott Fairfax Hotel at Fair Oaks Mall
11787 Lee Jackson Memorial Highway
Fairfax, VA 22033  (Near the intersection of Route 50 and I-66)
Entrance to the vendor area is free and open to the general public.



Door Prizes

We will have several door prizes that will be given away at the conference.  Many vendors will provide one, and we have some other ones as well.  As in the past, all attendees will be given a number of tickets (probably 25-35) that can be deposited in bags that will be set up for the give-aways, with a random drawing for each item in mid-afternoon.  You can put a ticket in each bag if you wish, or if you really want to increase your chances of winning a prize that is special to you, put them all in one bag.  We recommend that you bring some address labels to put on your tickets, so you don’t have to fill each one out.  Following is a list of the door prizes that we are aware of now.  We expect to have more by the time of the conference.
