>> 1 My cell number is 740.707.5114 so use it if you have to because it will
>> be the best way to contact me at the Convention. Please share it with
>> those that do not have access to email.
>>
>> 2 Our Caucus will be held in the LaSalle b room on Level 5 of the 
>> Mariott.
>> It will start promptly at 5-30 and I will move it along as quickly as
>> possible because I want as many of our chapter Presidents and leders in
>> general, to attend as much of the Back To Basics seminar as they can.
>> You might want to try and grab a bite before our meeting.
>>
>> 3 Bring your banquet tickets to the Caucus and give them to Crystal
>> McClain with your name signed on the back if possible if yu want to sit
>> with the rest of us. Whether you sit with us or not you will have to
>> exchange the ticket you purchased for one that will get you a seat at 
>> some
>> table.
>>
>> Please help our new people with all of this.
>>
>> 4 Richard and Cindy will be publishing instructions about selling candy
>> and turning in money. Please sell it enthusiastically and as quickly as
>> possible because if we run out we can always get more.
>>
>> 5 If you have Jernigan ticket stubbs and you want me to turn them in with
>> the rest that I have get them to me.
>> Just make sure you are in the drawing and make sure that Sherry has your
>> checks made out to the NFB Of Ohio with raffle tikets in the memo line.
>>
>> 6 I am very serious about general session attendance this year especially
>> if you are receiving financial assistance from us. I want our delegation
>> area to be as full as possible as often as possible!Remember that it is
>> sometimes very cold in the Ballroom so dress appropriately. Also, please
>> be aware that not only should we dress appropriately for the sessions, 
>> but
>> we should act appropriately too. Cameras are always on and not everyone 
>> is
>> totally blind not to say that this should be an excuse for unacceptable
>> behavior, but I hope you understand what I mean. For one example, we all
>> get a bit tired sometimes and we might nod off briefly or yawn from time
>> to time, but it has been my experience that some people literally camp 
>> out
>> in the delegations and it can be quite embarrassing so let's not shine
>> that  kind of spotlight on Ohio ok?
>>
>> 7 Finally I think for now, be very aware of who is around you and take
>> care especially when leaving the hotels. I am not knocking Detroit, but I
>> lived their for 3 years and it is imperative that you keep your wits 
>> about
>> you at all times. This property has great security but they can't be
>> everywhere all the time so be responsible and alert.
>>
>> We are going to have a great delegation this year and a wonderful
>> Convention so get excited.
