The 2013 Michigan Wolverines’ Annual Spring Meeting

It’s that time of year again.  Last Saturday was The Michigan Wolverines’ Winners Sweepstakes Club Annual Spring Meeting.  How fun!!  This year’s theme was It’s a Jungle/Zoo Out There.  I didn’t dress up, but many did.


You can see the full album on my Facebook Fan Page.  (If you have a picture you would like to add into the album, please email it to me.)I don’t enter all the drawings available as I can’t use stamped envelopes or postcards, but I always participate in:

  • the Pot Pourri drawing (bring in $3 of sweeping supplies for each entry, limit 2) for a chance to win a bin full of sweeping supplies,
  • the Scratch Lottery Ticket drawing (bring in a $2 scratch ticket for each entry, limit 5) for a chance to win $100 in scratch tickets,
  • the Charity Donation drawing (bring in a donation to the annual charity for each entry, limit 10) for a chance to win gift cards,
  • the Prize Donation drawing (bring in a prize to be given away at the end of the day),
  • the 50/50 drawing,
  • and of course the Super Sweeper Raffle (tickets are $1 each or 7 for $5) for a chance to win a heap of prizes.

Alokozay Tea gave me two amazing gift packs for me to donate.  How did I not photograph them?!

I had a lucky year as I won two prizes; a 7″ Android tablet and a Christmas gift basket.

Also, as usual, lunch was amazing.  I had two plates and skipped dinner.  I think I’ll revolt if they ever stop serving the chicken.  It’s the best.

I have only missed two meetings since I met Al Sayward, the meeting’s main coordinator.  (I want to be sure to give a shout-out to his entire club as the event wouldn’t be run so smoothly without everyone pitching in.)  I missed 2007 as we won a trip to the Coor’s Light Banff Peak Party.  I chose not to go to the 2011 meeting as it was too difficult financially and emotionally in the midst of our divorce.  For some reason I never blogged about the 2012 meeting.  I wonder why as Stephanie and I had a blast!  I don’t even have any photos.
