> If we do not have 2/3 of the 50 room block reserved by the middle  of this

> the technology session but, if we have reached that goal it will likely be

> And, she is not even ready to talk about the cash bar but said the normal

> minimum consumption guarantee. I don't know about everyone else but I 
> don't use our hard to come by funds to pay large meeting room rentals and 
> God knows what else. Let us save the state affiliate and ourselves some 
> money. So, please make those reservations right away.
> This sounds like a broken record to many of you but I am not sorry about

> if something comes up you can cancel without paying a single  haypenny.

> Again the convention is March 26-28 in Springfield at the Clarion at 3333
