Our next convention — 2020

The time has come to start thinking about what you want to bring to the convention. There are many options available to you. Of course, everyone will receive a goody bag as part of their welcome to Virginia Beach. If you are interested in donating to the goody bag, we are asking for 110 items. It does not have to be all the same item and anything family-friendly is welcome.

Next, have you considered your cookies? We can’t have a cookie convention without lots and lots of cookies! If you are feeling creative, you can enter the cookie-decorating contest. Here is all the details of the contest. We also ask that you bring 2 dozen cookies with you to share. You can bring any cookies that you want, including cookies made with cutters, drop cookies, filled cookies, or gluten free cookies (for the President). You can share your favorite recipe or keep those awesome cookies a family secret.

As the convention begins, the vendor hall will also be open. Make time in your schedule to come down from 9am to 10pm on Thursday for your club member sneak preview. Enter the vendor hall through the convention room VIP entrance for an hour of shopping before the public is allowed access. The convention will start at 10am with the opening ceremonies.

We will also have tons of prizes! There will be door prizes (free) and evening prizes (free). The cookie-decorating contest has prizes (free) and of course, you will receive many convention cookie cutters (free). Bring a couple of dollars to buy some raffle tickets so you can win a gift basket of your choice. We would love if you would donate a gift basket. Many people put together one from their spare cutters or something they run across that they find interesting. All the baskets will be on display during the convention and raffled off at the banquet. This is the fundraiser for the next convention.

If all the speakers and presentations during the day was not enough fun, there is more fun in the evening. Thursday night is mermaid paint night (free). You get to decorate your own mermaid to take home with you. You can also bring family and friends with you to join the fun ($5). Do not forget to brush up on your Mermaid and Mariner facts as your knowledge could win you extra custom cookie cutters. Friday night is the cutter swap. The vendor hall will be closed and it will be your opportunity to sell your cutters and socialize with other club members. If you are up to date on your Virginia facts, you will have another opportunity to win extra custom cutters.

Finally, the banquet is Saturday evening at 6pm. This is a fully catered event that everyone is welcome to attend (with ticket). You are invited to wear your favorite mermaid crown or mariner hat to the event. We will have a guest speaker related to our theme, hall of fame presentations, and choose winners for the raffle prizes. Overall, there is so many things to do, that you will be sad to see it end. We hope that you will join us in Virginia Beach and do not forget to allow a couple of extra days to see the sites and he beach.
