YAY, just got home and unloaded and taking a break from it all, lol! It was so wonderful seeing my friends and meeting new friends!!! A lot of teens there, very bright teens. The future of the glider community, YAY!!! Reggie Winters#65279; comes to mind, very bright young man, and sews awesome cagesets, makes toys, great asset to the community, Sydni Durden#65279; also very talented and sweet! My roommates Lesa Kinsey#65279; and Roxanne Vice#65279; were awesome!!! Could not have asked for better! I acquired a lot of glider accessories to spoil my suggies with!!!! yay. Hope you all enjoyed the SGN meet and greet! Congrats Lynsie Burgtorf#65279; for winning the baking contest! Bourbon H.#65279;, thanks for pulling it off every year with your right hand woman Alicia Kyriss Rudd#65279;. Nancy Lynch#65279; you were a fabulous hostess and kept it together great! Thank you all for allowing me to be a guest speaker. I always have been and always will be an advocate of the SGGA. If I never attend another , I have had the time of my life at each one. Life changes however and I have a lot of responsibility here daily. Things went smoothly thanks to Ronald Holt#65279; but I know it is a strain on him to have to do something that is not his responsibility! I was dissappointed in the all nighter or should I say the all notter, WHAT???? And here I had balls for a prize to the winners that could make it to daybreak. It was over at 4, yea 4am, whimps :)!! Honestly though I have to say I was relieved to get a couple extra hours sleep. I did not have a camera or take pics, Lesa and many others did though, I saw Thursdays but thats all so far! I loved that Mary Holcomb was able to be there and received a prestigious award. Thank You for all everyone does for Miss Mary! Nancy, dont forget to send her pouches I got at vending, I left without them! And the genetics project, OMG I cant believe 1000 dollars was raised at the SGGA, still got a ways to go so if you havnt donated, please time is running out. The 31st is the last day. Y'all ROCK ON and keep doing what your doing!!! Nancy Ford#65279;, you will be a fabulous hostess. I will send goody bag stuff and raffle prizes . It will be in Lexington Kentucky next year!

Time for some announcements-

We will be having a Door Sign Contest!!
Door Signs are a great way to let everyone know where your rooming and with who.

1. Door sign must only be contained to the door- cannot involve the wall or surrounding fixtures. Poster boards preferred.
2. Must not be attached to the door with materials that will damage the door.
3. First name/screen names only (Hotel wants their guests rooms to be secured)
4. There will be a judging panel & a prize for Best Chosen!!
5. So grab your roomates & HAVE FUN!!

There are still rooms available, but don't put it off till the last minute.

Registration is still open & the Paypal Buttons have been fixed. Don't forget you must do a Registration Form and submit a Payment form- these are two different registration links.

Thursday night we will be getting together for dinner for those early bird arrivals. Chosen location is currently Chili's around 7pm.

Friday night- SGN is hosting the Welcome Block Party. They are hosting a dessert bake off, so bring your Favorite Dessert creation.

There is a time ticker on the SGGA site so I don't need to remind you its right around the corner. Nancy hasn't received many donations for door prizes and only one goody bag stuffer. So please don't wait until the last minute and hit Nancy hard with donations. lol Many of you will be bringing your stuff so if that is the case just PM or email Nancy or myself we would greatly appreciate it! Thank You so much for supporting the SGGA, one of my favorite things! I hope it is one of your favorite things too

Cant wait to see my friends again and make new ones, putting faces with names is always good!

We all know we love to receive wonderful items for our gliders and this wouldn't be possible without the generous donors of the glider community. Donating to the SGGA Door prizes & Goody bags is a great way of sharing your talents - so calling all talented vendors- We'd love to see your great products.
Not a vendor- that's ok- everyone can contribute.

We always have great treasures in our Goody bags -Items donated to the goody bags or door prizes do not have to be glider related- there are always great "human" gifts in the door prizes.

We are filling 150 Goody Bags this year. But don't let that number scare you- you could always grab a friend and share on the goody's you donated.

If mailing your donations- Please mail them by July 15th to assure arrival in time for the SGGA
please send them to

If you need any ideas or want to check if your idea is already present in the goody bags- PLMK
Your time & donations are greatly appreciated & if you have a business card, you'd like to share- please send them as well.
