Have you ever been to a comping day? It’s the most fantastic day out – an opportunity to meet fellow compers, win prizes and chat about the best hobby in the world, without anybody thinking you’re a weirdo!
This June, Sunderland will host its first ever Comper Convention, and I’m delighted to be attending as their guest speaker (along with Compers News Editor Steve) – I’ll enjoy sharing some of my favourite comping tips and stories!
ComperCon is on Saturday 3 June 2017, from 10am to 4pm and should be a brilliant, fun-filled day for anyone who loves comping. Organised by the local competition club, the day will include quizzes, raffles and competitions – plus a buffet lunch and drinks.
Here’s a bit more information about ComperCon…
- Venue: Whitburn Academy in Sunderland
- Charity: Money raised will go to Newcastle charity Tiny Lives, to support sick newborn babies and their families.
- Tickets: Are £35, which includes lunch (vegetarian option available), teas, coffees and biscuits. For payment details, contact the team on Compercon2017@gmail.com
- Accommodation: There are plenty of local hotels (including the Marriott) if you’d like to make a weekend of it – I’ll be travelling up from Brighton on Friday so I’m sure there will be some Friday night drinks involved!
If you’d like to find out more, email the team at Compercon2017@gmail.com. You can also visit their Facebook Community page – where you’ll currently find a comp to win a £10 Love2Shop voucher plus see some of the amazing raffle prizes they have lined up (I’ve heard there’s a 40 inch TV, I’m not sure I’d want to bring that back to Brighton by train though!)
Will you be attending ComperCon? It would be great to see you there!
