If you have not done so, please make your room reservation with the meeting
hotel ASAP. The room block cut-off has been extended to January 2, 2006. We
are running just under our room night requirements, so please book now. If
you don't, 802.3 runs the risk of paying penalties for not making our room
block, and you run the risk of not having a room. Thanks for helping us out!

Our room block cut-off is December 20, 2005. After that, bookings are on a
space available basis. The 802.3 rate is good for three days before and
after the meeting dates.

The $140.00 IEEE rate is the lowest rate that the hotel will offer during
our week and includes continental breakfast and the morning and afternoon
breaks, and our meeting space. There is no meeting fee, hence there is no
registration. IEEE 802.3 is the meeting host for this Interim, and it is
very important that everyone stay at the San Marcos and identify them as
802.3 participants. Please help us keep the meeting costs as low as possible
and book at our hotel.

The hotel will give a discount to 802.3 members who would like to play golf.
Our guests can play golf for $89, a discount from the regular $110 rate, by
mentioning that they're with the group when they go to the clubhouse.

Please book your rooms as soon as possible.  This information will also be
posted to .

I look forward to seeing you in Chandler,
