If any of you are looking for a homeschool convention that is worth going to, you may want to check out the MidWest Homeschool Convention taking place at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, OH
March 31-April 2, 2011. In recent year's, the convention in our area has become exorbitantly priced with very few good speakers and fewer vendors.
Though we will have to pay gas and hotel, my husband and I think the MidWest Conference will be worth going to this year. If you register by November 18, the cost for a FAMILY to attend all three days of the conference is ONLY $40! There are over 300 workshops with such speakers as Ken Ham, Ted Tripp, Carol Barnier, Todd Wilson, etc. Saturday night will cap off the weekend with a presentation by the Duggar family ($1 reservation for family). A bonus is that the convention is not far away from the Creation Museum.
For more info (there is a lot of it!), follow this link. To find out the prices after the early-bird deadline, be sure to check out the registration pricing page. The earlier you sign up, the more you save, but the prices are reasonable for the next month or so. Be sure to book your hotel early as they will sell out early.
