There is going to be an Oakland Raiders fan convention on November 5th. There is going to be raffles, a car show, guest appearances and just general Raider Nation mingling.
Mike Sommers, who is helping set this all up, gave me the full run down of the event. Check out full event details after the jump.
The 2011 RAIDERS FAN CONVENTION (RFC) in association with the RAIDER NATION IV LIFE car club is set and ready for you!
Saturday Nov. 5th 10:00am (Sharp!). This is the Saturday before the Raiders demolish the Broncos at home. It is also Raider Booster Club weekend so come spend your Saturday with all your Raider family and friends at the RFC.
The RFC will take place from 10 am- 4 pm in the West Hall of the Oakland Convention Center 1001 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94607
The first 100 women with paid entry receive a free gift.
There will be a HUGE raffle! O.co (also known as Overstock.com) is the new name of the Oakland Coliseum and they are contributors to the raffle. There will also be custom made items in the raffle as well (Thanks Dan Shelly) AND an autograph show with proceeds from both going to the BILETNIKOFF FOUNDATION.
So can you guess who will be in attendance? Yes, you have it right SuperBowl MVP and Hall of Famer Fred Biletnikoff will be there and will probably bring some of his Raider "Friends"!
"But Wait There’s More!" Along with Fred Biletnikoff being in the house, there will be a Raider themed car show including Hi Roller Raider, live entertainment by the Hazmat Boyz, 4 Dub and teen sensation Crisy Cruz. DJ Dino and the Raider Raza will be spinning the tunes.
