An Invitation

As you heard at the Fall 2005 meeting, there is a problem with our Spring 2006 meeting in Reno, as it was originally scheduled to start on April 16, which turned out to be Easter Sunday. Vice Chairman Jim Fitzgerald has contacted the Hilton and we have re-scheduled the meeting for Sunday March 12 through Wednesday March 15. The meeting will be at the Reno Hilton. Block out your calendars now and make your plans. Jim will provide additional details as we get closer to the event. Have a wonderful holiday season. See you in Reno. - Chairman Bill Taylor (updated December 6, 2005)
