Convention 2013 Update

While the weather outside is cold and frightful, I'm already looking ahead to July, 2013, as the Convention Staff works on finalizing the details for Convention. The event is scheduled to be held at the Bay Front Sheraton Hotel and Convention Center right on the lake, in Erie, PA, on July 19 - 21, 2013.

We're planning a full slate of events for the weekend. Convention will start with optional tours of Erie landmarks and activities - we hope this to include the Maritime Museum and Brig Niagara, the Erie Art Museum  and miniature golf. On Friday night, we'll kick things off in style with a cook out on Presque Isle, where members can enjoy the beach and activities of the beautiful state park.

Saturday will see the usual business and events, including workshops, the annual awards luncheon, and the election of State Officers. Once the business is out the way, the entire group will head to Splash Lagoon Indoor Waterpark and Resort for an evening of aquatic fun in this massive indoor facility.

As we crunch the numbers, we hope to keep the costs down for the events. It looks like we'll be able to offer this entire weekend of fun and fellowship for around $250 per person for a quad room. Obviously, more information will become available as we get closer to the event, so stay tuned!

  1. Why is convention so expensive when you have children in the other two youth groups and they want to go to their convention also. Is there a way to bring down the price. Oh I don't know...not have it at a SHERATON!
