Other Fun T&S Events:
Here are a few other events, official and unofficial that have become tradition among the Twist & Shout attendees:
New Attendee Orientation If you are a first-time attendee to T&S, please join us for a fun orientation meeting on Wednesday, February 5th at 6:15 pm. Your hosts Donna Cochrane, Jason Cochrane and Robbie Furman will give you the ins and outs of Twist & Shout and help you get the most out of your convention experience. Gain valuable Tips & Tricks, meet new balloon friends, T&S Ambassadors, and maybe even get a cool gift package.
Pajama Jam: After the Wednesday welcome reception and competitions, Tawney Bubbles hosts a Late Nite Pajama Jam in the Jam Room. Pajama contests, twisting contests and tons of fun! Estimated start time is 11 pm. The Pajama Jam is just a welcoming atmosphere that says "we're a community of crazy people". So, it's fun, relaxed, and not structured at all. We'll have contests, story time, and balloon companies are donating prizes- we find creative ways to give it all away!
Broken Pump Award A fast paced fun twisting competition held on Saturday night in the Jam Room after the awards Banquet. This year it will be hosted by Sam Cremeens with an updated and super cool award
Sunday Evening Gathering. Those of us who are staying the extra day usually will gather for a relaxing dinner, to wind down and ease back into the real world after being overloaded with balloon knowledge. Its a time to get to know each other as people, not twisters, to relax without balloons and to enjoy a nice quite meal. Everyone will pay their own way. We will gather in the hotel lobby 6:00 pm on Sunday evening.
Join the Twist & Shout FaceBook Group
Many Twisters are making plans to come in early or stay after the convention to relax, play tourist and enjoy the fun of the town outside the convention space. Many are making plans to meet up and see local attractions and eat local food.
