It' snowing and convention information

Hello from snowy Northern VA where they are calling for a record 1 day snow 
fall for our area -- the "Knicker-Bocker" storm of 1922 dropped 28 inches on 
DC and they are saying this one could be between 24 and 36 inches!  AND, 
where the 1922 storm was isolated to the DC metro area, this one is expected 
to cover a 100 mile radius.  We had 2-4 ON THE GROUND, and 6 inches have 
fallen since 6 AM.

But on to WARMER THOUGHTS, those of you that are newsletters editors have 
already heard some of this but for everyone else, I have successfully 
renegotiated with the convention hotel, a decrease in the room rate for the 
convention.  At the same time due to other difficulties they have provided me 
with a free set of pages on the Marriott Web site to download the 
registration form, AND register with the hotel at our room rate.

Here are some convention relevant links:

2003 National Convention; Falls Church, Virginia; June 18 - 21:

And coming later (today hopefully!) a convention FAQ link!

informed me that they have gone back and changed all the room rates for those 
that were already registered at the old room rate.  Thus, you are now 
re-registered at the new lower rate.

Any questions, please do not hesitate in contacting me.
