Re: IAS show & sale, September 18-19, 2010

>From the home page at www.aroid.org, click on "Annual Show and Sale", 
which will take you to main show page. 

If you look just under the row of pictures, there's a line that says "The 
2010 Show and Sale will be September 18th and 19th, 2010", and immediately 
below that is a set of bullet points. The first one says "The Saturday 
Banquet is still $25 - reserve your spots now." If you click on either the 
word "banquet" or the phrase "reserve your spots" you should be taken to a 
page where you can make reservations (using PayPal), or print a 
reservation form which can be mailed to Albert with a check. PayPal is 
faster and easier, of course.

There are also a lot of other "hot links" on the main show page - links to 
the Fairchild home page, to a couple of the area hotels, and to pictures 
from previous shows.
