802 LCD Projector Shortfall

To:   802 SEC

I'm in the process of finalizing the purchase of the 2 LCD projectors which we authorized at La Jolla (one large, one small).  

This will bring our set of owned projectors up to 14 total.  

However in reviewing the agenda requests from our WG chairs for Tampa, we have outstanding requests for  TWENTY (20)  projectors, which means several WG break-out meetings will NOT get projectors or will have to timeshare with other WGs.  

It is not too late to add 2 more small projectors (we already have the shipping case space to handle them) but we will need a fast turn around SEC electronic ballot to approve the additional expenditure (~$6K).  This should reduce the shortfall by 33% and make the 
possibility of timesharing much less arduous.  If we have to rent projectors, we will pay about $2K per projector for the week.  

I need a final go/no-go on the additional purchase by Monday, October 23 in order to complete the purchase and get them to the meeting on time.  Please move fast on this one, if possible.  

The ball is in your court, gentleman.  I await your decision and submit my vote to approve in advance.  

Sorry for late notice but we are just getting the meeting agenda data worked out to the point where we could see the problem.  

Growth is always a painful process.  

Thanx,  Buzz
