When you can’t be at the conference with everyone else, the next best thing is following the #ACPA11 twitter back channel.  Thank you to everyone who participated in the #NASPA11 #SAbingo game. Feel free to visit the link and play that board too!

So the players might be different, but the game and rules are the same.  Tweet #SAbingo & #ACPA11 when you find a item on the bingo board, and if you have a camera phone, take a picture to send with your tweet.  I’ll post all of the tweets from our players on the blog.

Thank you to everyone who sent me suggestions and new ideas. I am working on a special #sachat board right now for all of the frequent twitter-ers out there, so stay tuned.

Below the board are a list of wonderful ideas I received  that didn’t make it this time around.  Often times they didn’t make it because they might be hard to capture on camera.  Thanks again for all who contributed :)

I’ve seen the error in my ways, and already updated the board. Thanks to Nikki Laird, @JennyDukes, @clconzen, & @ssandstr for insisting I include a hairspray reference.  Just needed to watch “Good Morning Baltimore” to be  won over! ;)
