Juvenation member Alex Riley is the 6th from the left (in the back row) in this photo.

Hi Ally,

As of now, the Children's Congress is only held every two years, so you'll have to wait until 2011.
Unless, of course, we could drum up enough interest in a 2010 Juvenation Type 1 Convention.
(Yes, Alyssa????  I'm talking to you :)

Oh my gosh, Paul, that "i'm talking to you" thing made me CRACK UP!! I'm game. I'd looooove to go for 2010 :) Is 1 enough interest? Haha we should start a post and see how many people would go for it

Alyssa,

It all depends on how much $$$$$$$ that ONE has?

If it was Bill Gates, Donald Trump or Warren Buffet
we'd be getting somewhere, I'm pretty sure.

Paul,

you are like the 4th person to say something like a type 1 convention. HMMMMmmmMMM  A couple of people personally emailed me about it as well. I think we may be onto something!

Can you imagine how many people that would be? Holy cow :)

I can't think of any convention center which would be large enough to accommodate it.  Can you imagine how many companies would want to exhibit in the exhibition center?  This, of course, would be a hugest source of revenue.

Here is the list of the LARGEST Convention Centers in the US.
Let's take a vote:

CONVENTION CENTER                      City                            Size (sq. ft.)

1. McCormick Place                              Chicago                     2.2 million
2. Orange County                                 Orlando                      2.05 million
       Convention Center
3. Las Vegas                                         Las Vegas                   1.94 million
        Convention Center
4. Georgia World                                    Atlanta                       1.37 million
        Congress Center
5. Kentucky Exposition Center               Louisville                   1.29 million
6. Sands Expo & Center                        Las Vegas                  1.13 million
7. Ernest N. Morial                                  New Orleans             1.1 million
Convention Center
8. Dallas Convention Center                     Dallas                        1.02 million
9. Pennsylvania Farm Show                     Harrisburg                1 million
Complex & Expo Center
10. George R. Brown                                Houston                       930,000

I vote we go with the largest, the more diabetics the better :) And, since the number of people in attendance is limited, we could always to sign-ups, you know? So there aren't more people that show up than the convention center can fit it :) What time frame do you guys think this would be pulled off? I am excited :)

When is our convention going to be?  I want to plan ahead!!!  Let's do this!!!


(Savs) #13

Woah, that'd be so cool! And Chicago isn't too far from here... hmm, that'd be intense.

Chicago is very far from me, but I would be willing to travel!!!
