[EFM] Another Meeting Reminder

Here's another update from Buzz Rigsbee.  Please be aware
that all meetings of the 802.1, 802.3 and 802.17 Working Groups
will be held in the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver (not the Hyatt
Regency Vancouver). If you are planning on attending the
802.3ah EFM Task Force meetings, I encourage you to make a
reservation at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. It is a MUCH
nicer hotel.

The cut off date for reservations at the Fairmont Hotel
Vancouver has been changed once again. According to the
information from Buzz, the new cut off date is Thursday,
December 18th.

IEEE 802:  Meeting Information Update Memo  -  3rd Announcement
Wednesday, December 17, 2003
Vancouver Hotel Rooms are going fast - Reserve NOW or get shut out !!!

Tomorrow we must release all unsold room at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver to other groups.
If you have any intention of attending the Vancouver Interim Meeting, we suggest you call
or go online immediately to reserve a room or risk being left out.  You can always cancel
your reservation without penalty until 24 hours prior to arrival should your plans change,
but if you miss getting a room you will probably be inconvenienced and overcharged, and
will not get the benefit of the on-site IEEE802 always-on Internet and local network services.

The IEEE802-Hosted Interim Session is January 12-16, 2004.

These Interim Meetings are being held at two Hotels in Vancouver.
Please note the Working Groups and the location of those meetings below.
The Hyatt and the Fairmont are located just across the street from each other,
so walking back and forth is not a problem.  Either one will work for you.
