Vendor freebies

I'm on a mission to collect swag. The conference sponsors have given out laptop bags to everyone. Most of the rest of the swag is stuff like pens and highlighters, but a couple so far are giving out USB hubs. Probably ¾ of the vendors are having a raffle of some sort. I'm entered in about 10 drawings for iPods of various kinds, one for an Xbox 360, one for a 37 inch flat screen T.V., $1000 cash, $250 at Best Buy, and probably another one or two I've forgotten. And I have another ten vendor booths left to hit tomorrow. There's about 1,100 people at the conference, and my guess is none of the drawings have more than 200 people in them. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
