Convention News and Updates


Our 2019 Convention “Thanks for the Memories”  (our final convention) will be Monday, July 15, 2019 thru Friday, July 19, 2019.


HOOT’s 2019 HEIRLOOM RAFFLE – FINAL QUILT. Our charity this year is VSAOhio.

We are very excited to go to the post office these days to see what quilt squares for the Heirloom Raffle Quilt have come in . This year’s quilt is going to be very special because the squares are being painted by current and former teachers at the HOOT Convention. We are looking forward to seeing all the squares and will be posting these on here on our Facebook page soon.
Thank you to all the teachers who have sent in their squares – and to those who will be sending them in before the December 31st deadline!!!

As of October 11, 2018, more rooms are now available on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings at the Arena Hyatt Regency.  There is limited supply so book ASAP!  There are 12 rooms available July 16, 10 rooms available July 17, and 20 rooms available July 18.

Please consider using our room blocks at the  Hyatt Place or the Courtyard Marriott locations if the Hyatt cannot accommodate you.
